I’m so excited to share this in-home maternity session for Charity and Mike. You’ve probably seen their photos multiple times in my work as I’ve been honored to have documented a lot of their major life events! I was their matron of honor for their wedding so I obviously didn’t capture their wedding photos. Doesn’t […]

Katie and Marcus’ Wedding at the Lithuanian World Center was a BLAST! And we knew it would be. I’ve never felt so many emotions in 1 day. I truly felt that way from beginning to end. Katie and Marcus started out their day the same way. She was surrounded with her beautiful girlfriends and sisters […]

How They Met Ever wonder how this generation would be like before the age of social media? “Meeting people online” is not just about Match.com or eHarmony anymore. There’s Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter etc etc. How many of you remember Myspace? Well, it’s not the “in” thing anymore but we’re sure a lot of people […]

“I’d help you do this for your instagram!” says both of them. We absolutely adored Jerrielyn and Eric during their engagement session. These two know how to handle their Instagram accounts! We scrolled through them and we’re blown away by their confidence and artistic visions. It was fun to watch them instruct each other how […]

What a fun wedding it was for Suzie & Jon! This is our first backyard wedding but we didn’t quite expect the size of their event until we saw how huge the tent was when we got there! The Manzke’s were such great friends with Suzie and Jon. It was so generous of them to […]

Of all the things that photographers dread, it’s the unpredictability of the weather. We know “there’s always a way.” But, heavy rain (or snow) can really put a damper on a well-planned occasion. That’s how it started with Gary & Lina’s wedding day! The heavy downpour from the night before resulted in flooding on the […]

A Romantic Chicago Botanic Garden Engagement Session How they met four times without her knowing Some things are destined to be. Sometimes, it just takes a couple of tries to get there. For Winnie and Kim, make that four tries. These two made us laugh when they talked about the way they met. Winnie had […]

How many of you still talk to your grade school friends? Do you even know their full names? Are you at least Facebook friends? Do you follow them on Snapchat or Instagram? Be honest. Why do I ask these questions, you say. Well, we covered a wedding recently wherein the most impressive thing that put […]

Wedding season is on full blast and we couldn’t be more excited to serve our wonderful couples. It’s that time of the year where we are amazed by the details, inspired by DIYs, mesmerized by wedding dresses and melted by newlyweds deeply in love. To keep this excitement going, we would like to share this […]

An invitation for Lan & Marty’s wedding came in the mail. I opened it and had a huge smile on my face out of excitement. Two precious people in my life finally picked a date for their wedding (after 3 years of engagement!). Besides that, they said it’s a Great Gatsby-themed wedding at Hotel Allegro […]

Meet MICHELLE

chicago-based
photographer

What started as a childhood hobby evolved into a great passion. Hours after I got engaged, I browsed through dozens of wedding photographers' portfolios and realized I was looking at my dream job. I fell in love with the idea of telling people's stories in images rather than words. It is my utmost goal to make you look back at these memories we create together as if you're experiencing these moments again, nostalgic yet exquisite.

I'm Michelle
