About

$6,500 Most Popular Price

We frequently shoot weddings in Brooklyn, NYC, Hudson Valley, The Catskills, Tulum Mexico, and all over the States. We feel that your wedding photos shouldn't look or feel staged. One of the ways to achieve this is by not asking you to do cheesy things like dramatically posing in a spiraling staircase and telling you to kiss with the veil placed over both your heads.... please no.

What we are there for is to capture the real feels with the creative freedom to shoot how we want. All you need to do is get on with your wedding and sip champagne while we take care of documenting your memories (including the fuzzy ones)....we got you.

We are here to be a source of calm with cameras on your wedding day and to make you feel at ease. This is why we gift a portrait session before your wedding. Don't you dare think of it as a cliche "engagement shoot" walking over the Brooklyn Bridge holding hands and balloons because.. really? We like shoot in your home and do a lap around your hood for an hour or so. Break the ice, get to know you two, take some snaps and get past the awkward camera in your face feeling. This time with you creates what you see in our work.

As artists, as photographers, we genuinely want to feel connected with who and what we create. Emotion drives our work, so give us your willingness to be photographed, and we will give you our best.

    A picture perfect wedding like no other

    Chellise clearly stood out among all of the photographers we looked at. Her work is distinctive in its authenticity and vitality. Taking the time to get to know us must be the secret. From our first introduction where we chatted in her studio for probably two hours, we felt she was a trusted friend. Many months later she came to our apartment for the portrait session. Taking these in your home is such a great idea and produced some photos that will be awesome to look at years from now. She captured not only us but the art, toys, and furry kitties that are part of our daily life. It's our personal New York experience, which honestly is most often at home =)

    On the day of Chellise showed up full of energy and ready to go. She shot well over 1,000 photos: us, the venue, the guests looking their best and some totally real moments too, the food, the flowers, the performers, Japanese glow in the dark toys — everything. We had a few performances lined up for our wedding and she got great shots of all of them, getting out on the dance floor and capturing all of the action. Some video captured her nearly getting hit with a whip of a Dominican Diablo Cojuelo! Google it.

    Our wedding theme was “Wicked Garden” with a dark side driven by the 1977 Italian Giallo horror film, Suspiria, directed by Dario Argento. This part really came out at the reception with lighting, decor, and some amazing centerpieces from Hudson Botanica. What really nailed it was Chellise's Lit Lounge where our guests got portraits amidst a variety of Suspiria-influenced lighting and an awesome backdrop that Chellise sought out specifically to make it even more awesome. Props also to Rijard who shot all the portraits and did his homework on Suspiria!

    We got a sneak peek of some shots just 4 days after the wedding. You don’t really know what you’re going to get but these shots and the rest that followed just in time for Christmas let us reminisce every time we see them. Chellise captured the day as we saw it.

    Best, most authentic, easy-going, awesome photographers!!

    Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!!!!! I cannot thank Chellise Michael Photography and Falcon enough for their outstanding services for my wedding. If you are a normal person, who wants to work with normal, laid back, artsy, warm people, this is the way to go. All interactions were seamless, easy, and fun. The whole vibe and attitude worked VERY well for my camera avoidant groom who was able to relax, smile, and take some great shots. One million thank you's!!! Also, these folks throw in a free engagement session to get to know the couples- this really helped. As soon as we met Falcon we knew doing our wedding shots would be easy and stress-free.

    We had the best experience working with Chellise - from our first meeting, to our portrait session, to our wedding day. We were both nervous about having our photos taken but she made us feel like we were just hanging out with a good friend. She was also able to capture the most MAGICAL pics of us on a roof top in the snow. We would recommend her to any couple! She rocks. xo! - Kara & Jill
