Mirelle was wonderful from start to finish. Choosing her as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made. She was professional, flexible, very friendly, and her photos were breathtaking! Photography was the largest part of our wedding budget, and we absolutely made the right choice.

Right from the beginning, we were totally enamored with her photojournalistic style and the beautiful way she works with light and color. We contacted her and hit it off immediately. Over the months, we got to know Mirelle better, from her great sense of humor and love of dinosaurs, to her delightful and talented family. (Including her sister, Cheryl, who is her second shooter and a fantastic photographer.) On the day of our wedding, it felt like we had two extra friends there with us who just happened to be incredible photographers.

We got married on the beach, so our first look photos had a rush of wind and the ceremony itself was set against a backdrop of crashing waves. Mirelle captured the warm glow of our evening reception perfectly, the scrumptious food, and--most importantly--the sense of celebration and love surrounding our party. We could not have imagined a more perfect day, or more perfect photographers to share it with.

What is there to say about Mirelle that hasn't already been said? She is incredibly talented, organized, down to earth, patient, and makes being photographed feel really natural, comfortable and fun.

Mirelle and her husband flew out to Maui last November to shoot our wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House. She had shot there before so I felt confident that she knew the venue and was comfortable shooting there.

On the day of the wedding, Mirelle and her husband Patrick (second shooter) came and set up without anyone noticing. She impressed me with how organized and thoughtful she was. She remembered the bridal party by name and spent time before the wedding collecting souvenirs from the beach for us. I felt confident that she would get all the shots that I wasn't able to see because I was getting ready for the ceremony. We are excited to see the final photos! We've gotten great feedback on our engagement photos - I loved the soft natural lighting of the photos.

Mirelle is also so sweet! She offered to pick up lunch for me and the bridal party and also stayed a little longer than the time we had talked about because we ran a bit behind schedule.

From the first email and phone call to follow ups after the wedding, I couldn't be more happy that we chose Mirelle to capture our special day. Thank you so much Mirelle!

I have been impressed by Mirelle since the very first time we met her. We were looking for photographers and met her for coffee in Pismo. She was just the sweetest thing and really impressed us with her work and her presentation. From there, it only got better. We had engagement photos done with Mirelle as well as our wedding and every second of working with her was amazing! Her photos are absolutely beautiful!! She really knows what she's doing. She was the perfect balance between helping us to stay organized, but in no way being bossy or taking over. She really made me feel comfortable all the way through. .... and then we got our photos ... WOW!! I mean, we were married at a very pretty venue, but she was able to capture beauty that was so beyond what I could see! Her knowledge of lighting and angles and everything was incredible. And she took some absolutely amazing shots of just the landscape, with no people, that are truly frame-worthy. And then after it all she sent us the most adorable little package, with some prints of our photos, a thumb drive with them all, along with decorative soap, a newlywed kitchen towel and a beautiful watercolor of some lyrics from our first dance song. It was just so special! I would recommend Mirelle 100 times over, she is amazing!

Mirelle is amazing...truly amazing! I won't even call it "working" with her because it was such a pleasure. Originally I found her when looking for wedding photographers in Carmel when my location changed to Santa Barbara she was more than happy to travel there as well. On my wedding day she was all smiles and laughs and captured every detail, feeling, laugh and smile of my event. She is punctual with all emails, communication and photo proof delivery. She is a perfect wedding photographer in every way and I would recommend her talent to anyone getting married...in California or anywhere.

Mirelle and Cheryl are amazing!! They did such a fantastic job capturing every little detail and happy moment of our big day. Gorgeous use of light, extremely professional and responsive and so much fun to work with. If you're looking for a photographer with amazing talent and a super fun personality, look no further!

When our first two attempts at an outdoor engagement shoot were rained out, Mirelle was extremely flexible -- the third time was a charm, and we ended up we an amazing engagement album that everyone loved.

I'd give a million stars if I could!

Mirelle photographed our wedding on July 27, 2013 in Half Moon Bay. She was prompt in all of our communication before the wedding, and she was quick in delivery of the final photos after the wedding. During the wedding, she was good at keeping us on schedule without being aggressive. Most importantly, I had a drama/freakout moment during the wedding, and Mirelle kept a calm composure and checked in with me to make sure I was doing okay.

I was happy with the final results and I would recommend her to anyone! Plus, I just like her as a person. If she lived in San Francisco, I would totally make her be my friend.

What can I say about Mirelle? She is professional, bubbly, talented, fun, meticulous (in a good way!), and works her butt off! We had the pleasure of having her shoot our wedding in Maui and our engagement session in Capitola. Her and her husband (who was assisting) were on time, so kind to our guests, sweet, and full of wonderful ideas. Mirelle will do what she needs to do in order to get those perfect shots. She is utterly passionate about photography, and it shows.

She was quick to get our engagement pictures back, and she completely captured the essence of who my husband and I are.

When we get our wedding pictures back, I am positive my husband and I will be able to relive our dream wedding. I know Mirelle will provide us with amazing photographs to accompany those special memories. I would recommend her services to ANYBODY!

Mirelle photographed my sister's wedding in 2011 and did a fabulous job! When I got engaged I knew I wanted to use Mirelle too!

Mirelle is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She is super sweet, fun and caring. She is super easy to work with and makes you feel super comfortable when she is shooting. On our wedding day, I barely knew she was there (which was great)!

Mirelle is a true artist and has a great creative eye. She has wonderful attention to details which is great for getting all the small and big details of the day. After getting my pictures I was able to totally relive my wedding day! She didn't miss a thing.

I would definitely recommend Mirelle for anyone's wedding day!

Mirelle was the photographer for our engagement session and wedding in March and she was fantastic! Her bubbly and outgoing personality, on top of her talent, made her great to work with. Her work speaks for itself, but she definitely went out of the way to make sure we got all the shots we wanted and things looked great!

Throughout the entire process it was always easy to contact her and we always got a response in a very timely manner. On the day of the wedding, as we were getting prepared for the ceremony she was ready and available to help and offer any emergency items we needed like lip gloss or hair pins. She was willing to share and help with anything she could to help make the day perfect!

Mirelle also was extremely fast when it came to getting us the digital prints (2 weeks for the engagement and about a month for the wedding pics) as well as having them easily downloadable in digital form.

We loved working with Mirelle and would recommend her to everyone!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Mirelle Carmichael Photography! I was the Maid of Honor at my best friends wedding in Hawaii. Mirelle traveled all the way to Hawaii with our wedding party from California and did an amazing job. She was early and even was helping to set things up like flowers and chairs. She made sure everything was perfect and suggested things to us to make the day even better. Her grace with the camera was so natural it did not even feel like we were being photographed. I remember her being "there" however i did not feel nervous about being photographed. All the shots she captured are very natural and beautiful. Nothing seems staged or pressured. I can honestly look back on the photos she took and literally relive that day over and over again like it was just yesterday. When I get to have my big day, she is the only photographer I will contact and that I will recommend to all my family and friends. Thanks again Mirelle for sharing your amazing tallets with us!
