Photojournalism means your wedding day is, well... your wedding day (not an eight hour photo shoot). It means your job is to kiss your new hubby when you think no one is looking and sing loud Michael Jackson songs on the dance floor and just do what you do on the best day of your life (to date), and my job is to capture that in all it's unique, crazy glory. Here's my thing: I never understood the concept of pretending to be a model as soon as a professional photographer shows up. Sure, you might end up with cool looking photos, but you know what's missing? You. the people in the photos look a lot like you and your beloved spouse-to-be, except they are making duck faces and posing like Vogue models. I promise never to pose you like supermodels (unless you are supermodels). I don't think dramatic posing and bored stares are what makes good photography. What makes good photography great photography is YOU, in all your you-ness. Letting you just be yourself with the love of your life makes for way more compelling photography than posing you like you're competing for America's Next Top Model. (And let's be honest, I'm no Tyra Banks.) Here's what I won't ask you to do: Smize (It's a word! The Urban Dictionary defines it as "smile with your eyes". Bleck.) Walk miles away from your reception to stand in a field of weeds Take three hours of portraits Here's what I will ask of you: Be yourself Forget that I'm there Have the best day of your life Read less

My family has had the good fortune to have Michelle photograph our lives for the past 14 years. Her work is flawless and she is an absolute kick to work with. She operates in stealth mode - you don't really see her navigating the venue...then poof - stunning photographs! I can't recommend her highly enough!

We spoke with many photographers in California before choosing Michelle Walker Photography. Michelle's work is incredible and we were really drawn to her photo-journalism approach. We didn't have to sit through a lot of posing, and throughout the night I didn't even know she was there. She recently sent us a sneak preview of our photos which are gorgeous. I can hardly wait to see them all!

We just received the most stunning photos from our wedding from our photographer Michelle Walker! She did an incredible job and we loved working with her! Not only did she and her assistant Vivian take the most gorgeous photos, but they were amazing to work with. We met with a few photographers, but we felt most relaxed and at ease with Michelle. Her work speaks for itself, but what we were blown away by was her role in helping us throughout our wedding day.

Michelle and Vivian made our day perfect even when things were not going completely as planned. They arrived while I was busy getting ready and they took beautiful shots of wedding details without me even noticing. I was hoping to have our first look photos in the vineyard, and even though it was a bit of a trek to get to and we were running behind on time, they made it happen. The photos came out stunning and we did not feel rushed at all. There was some miscommunication with our videographer and he missed our getting ready and first look…and Michelle let us borrow one of her extra/backup cameras that has video capability to capture these moments and the video were later incorporated by our videographer into the wedding film which also came out beautifully. Our reception schedule ran a bit long, and Michelle and Vivian stayed late until they took every single shot that we wanted of our wedding.

Our wedding was a dream and Michelle captured every moment beautifully. We highly recommend her.

Michelle Walker is phenomenal. We had engagement shots done with her as well as our wedding. Our wedding was 3 weeks ago and she sent us the link to our pictures already! Not only is she quick to get pictures back, but she is so easy to work with and her pictures are absolutely beautiful. The reason my husband and I picked her was because of her style, she's very candid and catches so many special moments that aren't posed. Michelle is professional but warm at the same time, makes taking endless pictures comfortable and quick, and answers emails right away when you have questions. I barely even sensed Michelle around during our wedding, but after seeing pictures it is clear that she was right there for all of the important moments. She was also great to make sure we'd gotten all of the pictures we wanted with special family/ friends before she left the reception. We have gotten so many compliments about her pictures already. Michelle is one of those people you want to keep as a friend after your event is over. I can't wait to see the album when her developer finishes it!

I cannot say enough good things about Michelle and all she did on our wedding day. She was professional, courteous, kind, wonderful, and a stress reliever. We received our first batch of pictures and I am absolutely blown away by how amazing they are. Michelle did such a fantastic job capturing all of the moments I had hoped, as well as a few that I could not have dreamed of. I would absolutely recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion.
