Michelle from Minerva photography was OUTSTANDING! We did a mini shoot with her for our engagement session and we knew right away that we had nothing to worry about for our wedding pictures! Michelle helped us create a timeline and ease our nerves about our pictures, and she was extremely professional! We have even decided to do an extra post wedding shoot with her! We look forward to working with her again for our future family photos and baby shoots! =) Minerva photography is fantastic!

Michelle exceeded my expectations for our wedding and engagement photos! She took a TON of AMAZING shots that my family and I will cherish for a lifetime. She is an incredibly gifted photographer with outstanding creativity and a great talent for capturing beautiful moments. We are extremely grateful that we chose her as our photographer. She was very professional, pleasant, efficient, and sincere during the entire process. She did our engagement photos, our wedding guest book, and our wedding photos. During the engagement session she was very accommodating and creative with our chosen location. We knew after that first session that we had chosen the right photographer. She put us both at ease and made us comfortable. The guest book she created for our wedding was so beautiful! On the wedding day itself, you wouldn't even know her and her assistant were there! We had a full wedding Mass and she and her assistant were very respectful of the sacred nature of the ceremony...I honestly didn't see them once during the whole Mass but they got so many beautiful shots. My guests commented on how professional they were. All of our wedding photos came out beautifully and our guests are enjoying looking through our convenient online viewing gallery that she provides for all of her clients. If I ever had a question or a concern throughout the whole process, she always responded to me very quickly and accommodated all of my requests. I would definitively recommend her to friends and family!! I could keep raving about how great she is but will stop here. :)

I am beyond pleased with my wedding photos,! As soon as I saw Michelle's website I knew she was the perfect person to hire. Michelle is very professional, and was more than just a photographer (with a little of my help by providing the details, she complied a wedding day timeline that was EXTREMELY helpful).

Michelle is a wonderful photographer and definitely have an outstanding intuition both for photography and dealing with her clients in a way that yields superb results. She photographed our wedding as well as our engagement pictures and exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds both times. Each picture is a work of art! She knows what works. The way she helped us pose not only makes her look like a pro, but us as well! She is friendly, accommodating and easy to work with. Her pricing is very reasonable. Both my wife and I were amazed and super happy with our albums and couldn't wait to show them off!

We are so lucky to have found such a talented, professional, and organized photographer for our wedding in Florida. I was initially drawn to Michelle's work as she provides the photojournalistic style that I like in addition to the formal wedding photos my parent's like. She also offered a much better value than other photographers I researched, including all inclusive all day coverage. Also, as a bride sometimes you can get caught up in just the photography aspect and forget how important an organized, punctual, experienced, and professional photographer is. We are SO lucky that Michelle checked off all of those boxes as well.

Two months before the wedding, Michelle works with you to develop a shot list and day-of timeline. This is invaluable and was a great tool to share with the vendors and wedding party to ensure everyone was on track. The day went smoothly and we were able to get most of the formal photos out of the way before the ceremony even started, which allowed us to be present at our own cocktail hour.

Michelle indicated to me that the photos would be ready 6-8 weeks after the wedding date and she stuck to that, which was great. Not only was there a beautiful online gallery that I could share with my guests, she sent me small cards to include in all the thank you notes so that my guests could view the online gallery and download the high res photos if they wanted to. I've never seen this before and was a great added touch!

All in all, Michelle does GREAT work. We received so many compliments and are absolutely in love with the amazing photography we have from our special day.

I highly recommend Michelle, she will put you at ease before, during, and after your wedding, and you will have gorgeous photos to cherish forever.

AMAZING! We loved everything about Michelle. We live in California and had our wedding in Miami without really knowing what to do or expect out of a wedding. We didn't even have a wedding planner! She made it very clear as to what to expect! Had some amazing suggestions about other venues which really helped us narrow our decisions and what we really wanted. Michelle outlined EVERYTHING to the T from what time to wake up and start getting everyone ready to the moment it finishes. Her and her team were very fun and had a great time with us which made our day even more special. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Whether you know exactly what you want to not knowing anything at all :) ALSO, the photos were so amazing. The quality of the photos were everything we wanted and more!!!

Michelle did my wedding and engagement shoot. I'm a budget conscious bride and did not want to sacrifice quality. Michelle was just amazing. For my wedding the only direction I gave her was "dark and sexy" and that is exactly what I received. I was running way behind schedule and did not get the shots I was expecting of myself and my groom, however that was absolutely not her fault, I mention this because I was surprised at the amount of shots she did capture given me running behind. I would not hesitate to hire Michelle again for our professional photography needs. She was amazing and my pictures are even more amazing!!!
