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.

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.Sent on 10/25/2018

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 & JillSent on 01/04/2018

I can’t say enough great things about Sarah and Quyn who shot our photos, Chellise and the rest of the crew for being great, responsive, and on top of everything from day one. Working with them was easy and fun, two very important factors in the chaos of planning. For two people that are not fond of attention and cameras, Sarah and Quyn were great to be around, and made entire process comfortable for us. Nothing is rehearsed, they guide when a perfect moment arises… and what you get are photos that make you remember what it felt like to be in that moment. We absolutely love our photos. You guys are incredible, and we had so much fun working with you! Thank you thank you thank you.Sent on 02/05/2018
