Hi there- Michelle here!
I have been a wedding photographer for over 10 years now, and I love it for SO many reasons! I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to travel all over the world for this career, photographing in Iceland, Greenland, Puerto Rico, and across the United States- frequenting spots in the Midwest and the PNW. I’ve been able to sign as a witness to the most intimate elopements, photographed big, luxurious weddings filled with exquisite flowers and candles, and have been featured in various magazines and websites.
These things are all very fun and incredible, however, the REAL reason I love being a wedding photographer is to be able to CELEBRATE all the LOVE and JOY that my couples have been blessed with. For me, this is what it’s all about. It’s about families getting together, epic dance moves, the happy tears of gratefulness for the people you love, the wide-grinning glances with your beloved, and the sweet, quiet kisses when you two are alone.
These moments are more important than any posed photograph, and these are the things I aim to capture. Just natural moments and natural beauty. I want you to look back at your wedding album with your kids and grandkids and instantly remember all the FEELINGS- the anticipation, the joy, the beauty, even the way the breeze felt in your hair that day, and the way the warm sun felt on your skin. Because enjoying this day is what it’s all about. I want you to be able to do that over and over again through your photographs.
