I'm genuinely passionate about creating timeless images because I know that your images are the only wedding day investment that actually become MORE valuable as the years pass.  My focus is completely on telling your story and I tend to stay away form the "trendy" editing techniques that will soon feel outdated.  

Orlando Wedding Photographer

More than just pictures.
They're                     

That being said, I definitely tend to take the more photojournalistic approach to all aspects of wedding photography and let events unfold organically and naturally in order to capture authentic moments. I tend to stay away form the "trendy" editing techniques that will soon feel outdated. Rarely, if ever, will you hear me say "do that agin so I can get the shot". For me, you can't repeat natural and expect it to look natural.

My goal on your wedding day is to be as invisible and unobtrusive as possible. I want you to relax and enjoy the day and not be constantly focused on what picture you might have to pose for next or even worse, feeling like you have to be at my beck and call. This is your day.

5 Questions to ask before hiring a wedding planner

a beautiful wedding for any budget

When you look back at old photos, how does that make you feel?  Nostalgic, right?  Even if they were taken 6 months ago.  Time flies and those images, when you look back on them, it brings back all those feelings of that day you said "I Do" or how tiny those newborn baby fingers and toes were.  When you hire me as your photographer for those events in your life, you can be sure that the first thing on my mind is you...how you'll feel looking at the images the day you receive your gallery, how you'll feeling hanging them on your wall and how you'll feel 50 years from now when you stumble through an old book where you used your favorite picture as a place holder (Photos are THE BEST bookmarks, by the way ;)  )  It really is all about a feeling and my goal is to create that as naturally and organically as I can.

If you're a bride, your wedding photographer is literally the one person who will be with you more throughout your entire wedding day than anyone else.  From the bridal prep to the sparkler send-off, your photographer in an integral part of your day.  So hiring a photographer who's style of photography you like is important but also hiring someone who is fun, loves a good laugh, has an outgoing attitude, can keep you on schedule and bustle a dress like a pro - it's like winning the lotto!

Families -  throughout my 11 years as a professional photographer and 18 years as a mother, I have learned to read people and behaviors pretty well...so well that I know bribery is KING when photographing little ones and doing something absolutely ridiculous like wacking myself on the head with a stick to get authentic, genuine smiles is so worth it in the end.  (Don't worry...I haven't actually hurt myself)  I also know with wedding planning, you've spent a lot of valuable time choosing the perfect dress, venue, flowers and cake planning for your once in a lifetime day.  These images are important to you and something you'll treasure forever.  Be rest assured that while photographing your family, in whatever situation, I always have YOU in mind - always.

Q.  How long have you been a photographer?    
A.
  This year, I'm coming up on 11 years as a professional photographer!  My love of photography began in High School but I really developed an interest when my second daughter was born

Q:  How many weddings have you done?
A.
  I have done over 300 weddings and countless portrait sessions.  Some of the weddings were my own, some I shot as a contractual obligation with other photography businesses.  I'm grateful for those opportunities when I can collaborate with other photography businesses, develop my skill and meet all kinds of new people!

Q:  What kind of equipment do you use?
A:  I'm a Canon girl.  Mainly, I shoot with a 5D Mark IV with a Sigma 70-200 but my Canon 6D with a 24-105 is right at my side too!  Having both on me saves time by not having to go back and forth to my bag to switch out lenses, batteries, memory cards etc. 

Q:  Do you think I need 2 photographers?
A: 
Simple answer...no.  If you're having a massive wedding with over 300 guests, have a huge wedding venue that no one could possibly maneuver around alone or a multi day event, you may want to consider it but in general, one photographer who knows the timeline, venue and has experience will do.  But if you need one, I have no problem getting one for you :)

Q:  Do you have payment plans?
A:  I DO!!!  When you choose to book with me, I do require a down payment of 35% of the invoice total  and the final balance due 30 days prior to the wedding date.  From there, we can work out a payment plan that will be made in 1/3's or 1/4's...whatever works for you!


Q:  How do I book you for my wedding day?
A: 
Now that's what I like to hear ;)  To book me, just let me know what you want included in your custom collection!  Don't forget to include how many hours, engagement session add-ons, print and album add-ons and what payment plan works best for you!

It's THAT Easy

Shannon & Chris

She captures those moments, you would miss in a blink of an eye. The turn around time on the finished pictures are very quick, that it still amazes me how beautiful they are. She did our wedding, and she delivered above and beyond professionalism, ideas, and candid photos that I will always cherish. She is honest, direct, who I would rate as 10 plus!

- Shannon & Chris

- Amanda & Jacob

One the best photographers I’ve ever dealt with. Not only are her pictures high quality and absolutely gorgeous, but the spirit she brings to the shoot is so joyful and relaxed. I have one kid who does NOT like taking pictures and yet, Michelle’s fun antics made it so she was able to capture the biggest smile ever from a tough customer. I would highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!!

- Taylor & Graham

She is the most creative, patient, and fun photographer I’ve ever met. She knew exactly how to pose my fiancé and I to capture the best moments and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants sweet, personable pictures taken.

- Sidney & Jake

She is truly amazing and genuine! I can thank Michelle enough for the experience!

- Danielle & Nick

5 stars is NOT enough! 5+ my fiance and I had an amazing time during our shoot with Michelle, she was very creative, fun and knew how to pose us to capture the most beautiful pictures. I love her work and definitely plan on using her in the near future and would recommend her to anyone!
