"We loved having Michelle photograph our big day!! She was warm, relaxed (exactly what is needed on a day that can be hectic!), and professional! The photos turned out INCREDIBLE, better than we could have hoped for! The photos were one of the most important aspects of the wedding to me and Michelle absolutely nailed it. Thank you Michelle!" ~Claire and Chris


"I would highly recommend Michelle over and over again!! She did a wonderful job with our engagement session and also capturing all the special moments on our wedding day. Her husband Andry did a fantastic job capturing the groomsmen and all their personalities as well! The photos are ones we cherish and will continue to forever! ❤" ~Jessica and Adam


"Michelle and Andry were amazing! From our Engagement session to our wedding day, they captured everything I had every envisioned! The photos were beautiful, BREATHTAKING! Still haven't ordered any prints, because it is so hard to choose a favorite...(might just have to order them all)! Wanting to book again for 1 year anniversary photos!" ~Shiloh and Trent


"Michelle and Andry do amazing work! So kind, flexible, fun, easy to work with and their photography skills are beautiful! It has been so hard selecting photos because they all are so beautiful! They travelled an hour away to capture our wedding day! It poured down rain and they were troopers, staying for 10 hours! and the pictures turned out amazing! We recommend 100%! Did not disappoint!" ~Olivia and Mike


"I am so grateful for all of the work that you put into our wedding day photos! We have been gushing about them ever since we saw the sample gallery. You have made something so special, that I am so excited to share with my future children and future grandchildren. I am so happy with how everything turned out. The entire time, you were very professional with us while also having a sense of joy and humanity. It was wonderful getting to talk with you and have you help ease our nerves. All of your posing and attention to detail were impeccable and produced amazing results. Not only that, but we love how prepared you were.I cannot wait to see all of the work you do in the future. I set my phone up to see any alerts for future work you will do! I cannot wait to see how you improve from here.Thank you again!" ~Abby and Sam
