We were so happy with Michelle's services from beginning to end. She was very responsive from the beginning, and really understood the importance of the wedding experience and our vision for our wedding. As photographers, when my husband and I were planning our wedding, one of the most common questions we got was "how does a photographer pick a photographer?" Well, we did a LOT of research since we were looking in a place we don't live. Michelle's work was technically solid and beautiful, and she delivers the whimsy, romantic feel that I wanted for our portraits without being too trendy. On the day of the wedding, Michelle showed up early with a beautiful bouquet of peonies (my wedding flower!), which was much appreciated and became a part of our DIY centerpieces! When I was feeling stressed, she stayed calm. We were also very pleased with her choice for a second photographer that day, as we are also big fans of Amalie Orange's work. They were a great team, friendly, professional, and calm. We can't wait to see the photos and are truly grateful we found Michelle and chose her to be a part of our day!

My experience with Michelle March was a terrible one. We met in person,spoke several times, exchanged several emails and discussed concepts. We finalized a date, price, requirements and responsibilities. We verbally agreed on a final price and that was followed by me sending a final contract and payment. I chose her as my photographer and she accepted. I informed her I had mailed contract and payment. A couple days later, she informed my wedding planner via email that she accepted another contract from another client for my wedding date and would not be able to complete what she had already verbally and in writing agreed to do. She never even called to give a first right of refusal , having full knowledge that my check and contract were in the mail and received. I have email proof that there was an agreement reached for my wedding date. This shows lack of professionalism , customer service,and overall poor business performance. If you try to negotiate with her just know she may double book a client and offer you inferior service which was not agreed upon. When I emailed her to discuss the issue , she completely shirked all responsibility and was " sorry to hear that I felt disappointed ". This shows lack of accountability for her actions and overall lack of integrity. If you are looking for someone honest, reliable, and professional, look elsewhere ! There are plenty of talented photographers who are not willing to compromise their reputation by conducting themselves in a shady and dishonest manner.

Michelle March responded with the following comments:

All the communication was between the planner and myself (via email) and I only met and literally spoke with the client once. The client didn't reach out to me (via email) until AFTER I had let her planner know that I was already booked. I didn't even have the client's contact information. Backstory: The planner reached out to me and setup a meeting. I met with the planner and the client and we talked about their wedding day. I showed them a sample album, talked pricing, etc. General meeting. Nothing was signed or agreed upon. The planner emailed me to let me know that they wanted to hire me. However, I still did not receive a signed contract and deposit. Almost a month later, I received an email from the planner with a few questions from the client. I responded right away with everything they needed. Still, I never signed a contract myself nor verbally agreed to hold the date for them. I received other inquiries for their date. My services are first come, first served and I only hold dates with a finalized contract (signed on by all parties, including myself) and a deposit. By the time I finally had the contract and deposit in my hand, another couple who I had been communicating with sent their paperwork/hired me. I immediately reached out to the planner (the only point of reference I had) and let her know that I had already booked the date and I would be sending the contract and deposit back to the client. I am sorry that the bride is disappointed, however I was nothing but kind and helpful the entire time. I even lowered my rates for her since she was having a weekday wedding and also offered her a different payment plan than I had originally discussed with her planner. I really went above and beyond and unfortunately, it still wasn't enough. If they had booked me sooner, the date would be theirs. I can't run my business just on someone's word. I have to be fair to everyone. I wished her well and still do. I can't please everyone and I stand by my policies.

I just viewed my photographs by Michelle March and I can't stop crying tears of joy! They are everything that we could have hoped for and far more. Our elopement was at the beautiful Portifino hotel in Orlando and though neither one of us had posed in front of a professional camera before, Michelle made it so easy and comfortable for us to be ourselves. I knew from the moment I met her that she was the perfect photographer for me! Her presence is calming and her positive energy is contagious and I will be singing her praises for these photographs until it's time for her to take pictures of our one year anniversary! I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this talented photographer and beautiful person! You should hire her, I promise you won't regret it!

Having Michelle photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We had a specific vision and knew that only she would know how to capture it. I wanted a team that would be able to capture the traditional photographs and also have an artistic photojournalistic touch. I wanted to see candid moments that I wouldn't be able to experience and Michelle did that and even more than I could have imagined! Our photographs tell a story and we will cherish them forever. Michelle and Mike really are the dream team and their artistic eye and aesthetic is timeless! Their attention to detail and professionalism made the experience very pleasurable and I am just so grateful for them!

Michelle did a fantastic job with our engagement photos. My husband and I are kind of shy around a camera together, and she made us look timeless and naturally happy. Thank you sooo much for your patience and talent, which resulted in some very special photographs that my family will treasure forever.

Working with Michelle March for my wedding was the best decision I made! When I first began my wedding planning process, the most important thing every bride conveyed to me was to get the best photographer. Working in the fashion industry I am exposed to top photographers on a daily basis and I chose to work with Michelle (and she chose to work with me) because she is so incredibly creative and her work speaks for itself! When we first met I was thrilled to feel such great energy, chat with another creative mind, and talk about our mutual love for love and photography! Michelle shot not only my wedding, but my engagement photos and I cant begin to express how happy we are with them! The engagement photos were exactly what we wanted and she did such a beautiful job following through with our vision and bringing it to life. She shoots with natural light and captures such romantic and gush worthy photos that I am absolutely in love with my session! As for my wedding day...Michelle was very responsible, on time, easy to work with and an overall joy! I am so excited to see my final wedding photos (I loved the sneak peek she sent me!) and would highly recommend her as the best wedding photographer to hire for your special day! Do not make the wrong decision on hiring your photographer as they are the ones who will bring to life your special day and the photos will be what you will look back on for the rest of your life! Hire Michelle March...you wont be sorry!

I'm not gonna lie I was nervous, because you want someone to document this day not just as a photograph memory but as a fairytale dream! Everyday for probably 6 months I saw Michelle's pictures on her website and I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding, just didn't know how. And it was totally last minute and she was so patient with me, as I was not only a nervous bride but also 5 months prego with a 18 month old. I anxiously waited for a taste of my pictures, and was blown away at how it looked like a "Cinderella story". I was in tears!!!! I love it and will definitely use them again!!!! For whatever event requires a photographer ;-)~

A 5 in all these categories does not do ShadowBear Photography justice. They are AMAZING! They made my wedding day SPECIAL! The experience was great from start to finish. They did an undescribable job with my wedding pictures. I am so grateful and truly blessed that I had them as part of my vendors. If you want some one professional and affordable you definietly want/need ShawdowBear as your photographer for any occasion. 2 words: Highly Recommended!
