Regardless of the season that they're in, we love creating photos to remind couples that in spite of the fact that work seems endlessly exhausting, folded clothes have not been put away and to-go containers have piled up on their recycling containers, their love and their story are beautiful.
Everyone has cameras on their hands now with Androids and iPhones. As much as it's easy to capture memories on your phone, nothing beats high quality images that you can use to fill up the walls of your home!
Let's pick a date and a beautiful location, shall we?

Michelle is experienced, professional, and truly went above and beyond what we imagined. Michelle had quick responses from the beginning to end, and she brings full energy to every conversation, photoshoot, and everything in between. She also captured my bridal shower and she was so sweet to my friends and family members. Best of all, Michelle knew how to pose my husband and I to get the perfect shot and still made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She was also so helpful when we were trying to find other wedding vendors and gave us great recommendations! I’m so glad we chose Michelle for our big day!! Everything came out so beautifully!
Definitely one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning!

If you're looking for breathtaking engagement photos, Michelle is your girl!! We received an absolutely beautiful gallery with so many photos. During our session she was super friendly, extremely knowledgable with posing and lighting, and made us feel so comfortable. Her photography style is timeless and elegant yet showcases a couple's personality!

The pictures turned out phenomenal and everyone in our family raved about them. We enjoyed our experience with her. She really captures beautiful and loving moments, and we're glad we're able to share that with everyone we love. I'm so glad we booked her and you should too!
Simply elegant pictures!"

ready for more?
No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.
The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!
To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know!
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun!
Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
