I knew we looked good. Now everyone else knows too. And the photogs at Elle Michelle are more creative and professional than any others I've worked with. We've used them for a couple years now. I can't imagine using anyone else. Cameras don't take pictures - people do!Sent on 01/24/2013

They say "a picture is worth a thousand words"...Lesa and Haley's pictures are worth so much more than that! From our engagement session to the wedding day, Lesa and Haley wowed me with their talent, professionalism, and love for what they do. They establish a bond that helps ease anyone who is camera shy (me!) and they make it so natural and fun that you want to do it all over again. Their quality of work is impeccable! Any bride-to-be that chooses Elle Michelle Photography will NOT have to worry for one minute about any wedding details pertaining to photography!! Their pictures tell your wedding day story perfectly, a story you'll want to "read" over and over again!Sent on 07/08/2011
