(It's wine, by the way)

One thing I have always done is look at my own photos of my family and friends over and over. I love to reminisce with them. They bring me right back to my best memories with my best people. As I’m creating them for other people, on one of the most important days of their lives, I can imagine my couple looking back and smiling. So even though I’m documenting your legacy, I’m also leaving mine. 

Do you wanna know the deep stuff first or my favorite drink?

I love to eat healthy, but I do think a box of mac and cheese is exactly one serving.
I dream of moving to an island and opening an ice cream shop, but goddammit I love my friends and family enough to stay here in Jersey.
I’m really observant, but usually talking while observing.
I believe that nothing is funnier than smart, witty sarcasm, but who doesn’t love a good dad joke now and then?
I love designer clothing, but sometimes there are chips on my shirt. What are you gonna do?
I love adventure—skydiving, river rafting, roller coasters, but put any bug anywhere near me and I’ll freak out.

I’ll let you decide if that’s charming or not.

I'm a walking paradox

THE DEEP STUFF WON ME OVER

I love the actual work of weddings—the being on my feet, the urgency of capturing important moments, and the thousands of interactions I need to have on a wedding day. But I also love the hours of sitting in front of my computer, all by myself. I love the art of choosing the right images and spending time on each and every one.
I bring my contradictory self to every wedding I photograph. It helps me relate to so many different couples. I have couples who are absolute bookworms and need a little help coming out of their shells. I have loud, crazy couples who put themselves in sexy poses without me even asking. I have sweet couples who act like I’m not even there.

If that’s the kind of photographer you want, then I’m who you want.

LET'S CHAT

“By the time Michelle showed up on our wedding day, the venue coordinator thought we were old friends who had known each other for years, but that’s just the kind of person Michelle is - she exudes confidence, is easy to get along with, and puts everyone around her at ease - and it shows in her photos.”
