I found Michelle by doing a search in our local area for our engagement photos. We communicated regularly up until our session and she was so responsive to emails and even offered to chat via text if we needed anything. My fiancé and I were nervous about having a photo session, but let me tell you - Michelle can make anyone’s feel like you’ve known her forever. She gave us ideas for poses and could tell immediately where the good light and good colors were. Even the quick previews we saw on her camera looked amazing and those hadn’t even been edited yet! We clicked instantly with Michelle and decided during our engagement session to book her for our wedding photography. Our photos came out BEAUTIFULLY - better than I could have imagined! Please do yourself a favor and book Michelle as your photographer! She has such a talent for photographing people and capturing special moments. We are so grateful to have found Michelle!Sent on 02/28/2018
