"The most daunting part of Wedding planning for us was not only putting faith in others to re-create our dreams, but more so...conceptualizing how we would go about capturing them, to have and to hold from that day forward and even more so, for loved ones that could not be there to witness our day, to feel like they were... To bestow that responsibility, to place that level of trust with someone was never a concern because of Michelle Warren! Her sheer gift and pure passion is what we could only dream of! Thank you for being on that next level of awesomeness as a person (your assistant and partner in crime/husband; Ben too) and for not only capturing our moments but creating memories for us... We can honestly only hope that others have the opportunity to experience your talent and gift :)"

Count yourself lucky if you are able to work with Michelle Warren for your wedding! She is an absolute dream photographer who is not only responsible, timely and personable but she is a true artist who has the rare ability to capture emotion and intimacy in her photos. I'm a huge planner by nature and looked at many photographers in advance before selecting one so trust me...I've done my homework. I was immediately drawn to Michelle's work because of her soft/romantic images and her ability to make all her brides look even more beautiful than they already are. Although her portfolio drew me in, my meeting with Michelle really sealed the deal in working with her. My now husband and I met her at a coffee shop and ended up just chatting for an hour. When all you want to focus on is your big day, it is so helpful to have a photographer who puts you at ease and that is exactly what we felt with Michelle. Over the course of my 2-year engagement, Michelle was great about providing feedback, answering my questions about other vendors, etc. She even called a couple times just to touch base and see how I was doing. At our engagement photo shoot, we knew we made the right decision! My husband isn't particularly keen on being in front of a camera but Michelle just made us laugh the entire time so we had such an amazing experience (and even more incredible photos as a reminder of the night). And the wedding itself--pure magic and beautiful pictures from an artist that will last a lifetime. My advice - snatch Michelle up as a quick as possible for your wedding. You won't regret it!

I have so many wonderful thoughts about Michelle... I don't know where to start!
I first saw Michelle's work about 5-6 years ago. She was the photographer for one of my co-workers. When I was shown the wedding album, I was blown away! I didn't know that wedding photos could be so incredibly beautiful. It was on that day that I decided that if I ever got married, I would use Michelle.
Jump ahead to 2011... I was engaged and in the planning process. My wedding coordinator gave me a list of photographers. I reviewed the list and knew immediately that Michelle was soo much better than what I was seeing. I even had my maid of honor look through the various websites and give me her opinion (concealing the fact that Michelle was still my favorite). My maid of honor said that Michelle's photos were great because they evoked emotion. You could feel the love coming through the photos. With that vote in Michelle's favor, I crossed my fingers and contacted Michelle with my proposed wedding dates. She was available AND she was willing to travel to Los Angeles!
Working with Michelle was wonderful! She is so sweet and talented. She is responsive when you contact her. And she has great ideas for wedding day flow.
She makes you feel comfortable - so that you can focus on the feelings that you have for your future husband.
When it comes to getting married, the actual day is going to go by so quickly. The lasting memories will be the photos. And I am so glad that our photos were taken by Michelle! We love her!

Hiring Michelle to do our wedding photography was by FAR the best decision my (now) husband and I made throughout the planning process. From the moment we began planning, I said that the photography was the most important piece to me-- so I spent a lot of time doing my research. I luckily discovered Michelle's work through Facebook, and then later she was referred to me from another vendor.

Michelle has continued to exceed every expectation, even after the wedding day. She is prompt and thorough in her responses, even responding to my late night text the week before the wedding asking for advice on which tie my husband should wear! (Sorry, maybe I should not encourage late night texting to wedding vendors...)

Michelle listens to what her clients want, and is flexible (and generous) to make it happen. Having been through her own wedding day, she brings personal insight into what the bride is thinking/feeling. Speaking of her wedding day, she has an awesome second shooter/assistant who is equally as loveable, and somewhat of a MacGyver, her husband Ben. Ben is not only a great photographer himself, but the Jack-of-all-trades on your wedding day, which is SO helpful! (He made some magic potion to get the red wine out of my wedding dress... oops!) You are in THE BEST hands with this dynamic duo on your wedding day.

I could go on and on and on about how wonderful Michelle is, and how she is definitely an investment you will not regret. But with all the other stuff-- her being a true professional, fun, just a beautiful person.... at the end of the day, and months after the excitement of the wedding has worn off, you are left with the most incredible images of your wedding day. Details and moments you may have missed or forgotten, beautiful captured for you to revist whenever you want.

I plan to have Michelle photograph my family for years to come.... whenever that baby time comes, that is.

Michelle Warren was an absolute blessing. Not only was she incredibly easy to communicate with, her talent speaks for itself. She treated us like friends - which, in turn, made it easy for us to enjoy ourselves and relax (which allowed her to get some incredible shots!) Hands down the best investment we made in our special day. If you're lucky enough to get onto her busy schedule... snag her ASAP!

I fell in love with Michelle's photography at first sight and knew I wanted her services for my wedding right away. She is wonderful to work with and the quality and style of her photos are amazing. She stays in contact throughout the whole process, will always update you on the status of your photos/package, and is quick to respond to any questions. The value of her photography and capturing the memories of our marriage is priceless. My husband and I love our wedding photos!

As a photography professional myself, this was the most important vendor decision for me. I spoke to several great photographers with great portfolios and a wide range of rates, and Michelle was my favorite - both for her skills and her personality, which is equally warm and professional. She's a fun, easy person to be around and made me feel totally comfortable while she snapped away. When I received the photos, thoughtfully bundled with fun "extras" thrown in, I was thrilled. I believe that no one could have captured our day more beautifully than Michelle did!

I LOVE Michele!!! Her pictures are beautiful and very organic. If you want traditional pictures that are posey and look like everyone else's wedding pictures, look elsewhere. Michele captures life as its happening, without putting everyone in a line and saying cheese! I'm her biggest fan, she's a true artist. On time, professional and just a beautiful person all around. Will definitely be calling her for years to come!

Michelle is a longtime friend of our family -- I've known her since she was seven years old! But even if I didn't know her personally, I still would have chosen her as our wedding photographer. Quite simply, her work is stunning. Since our wedding, she has photographer other friends' weddings and families. It's been going on two years since our wedding, and I still get compliments! Plus, she's an easy going and genuinely nice person to have around on your special day.
