Worth every penny!
My wife Alex and I both work in the hospitality industry and did not want an extravagant wedding with big expenses, big band and big stress. We’ve seen it all and decided that the most important thing was for us to be together and to share our love with some of our closest family and friends. However, we also decided the one exception to all of this would be to find a great photographer – we found just that and more with Michelle Elyse Photography!Sent on 02/05/2020
From our first e-mail communication to our first meeting in person, Shelley was professional, warm and most importantly, comforting to the bride. She is clearly experienced and knows exactly how to create a fun environment that brings out the smiles in all of us! When our time with her was up, Alex and I both decided that she was a fantastic choice and certainly worth every penny. This was made even more apparent when we received our sneak peaks shortly after our big day. I’ll let her portfolio speak for itself, but rest assured you will absolutely love your photos!
My wife and I are confident that we will gaze upon these photos year after year and relive all of the special memories. We’re so glad we chose Michelle Elyse Photography and can’t recommend her enough. Thanks again Shelley!
Michelle Elyse Photography's reply:Thank you so much Vinny! It was so wonderful to meet you and Alex and to be able to capture this sweet celebration for you all!

Shelley is a magician. From the moment I saw her pictures on Instagram, I knew that I needed her to photograph our engagement and wedding pictures. The engagement photos captured every little bit of our relationship. My favorite part is that most of the pictures taken are candid’s, so you’re not posed in every picture. Shelley is so amazing that we even hired her separately for a family photoshoot that came out better than we could ever imagine. I’ve only received my sneak peaks and I’m DYING to see what incredible moments Shelley captured throughout our wedding!Sent on 11/11/2019

Best of the best!
Shelley is a dream to work with! The photos of my wedding are above and beyond what I expected, every moment was captured beautifully and she did an incredible job at helping us feel natural and relaxed in order to capture such beautiful shots. She is very personable and makes you feel at ease. Her talent speaks for itself through her portfolio. Truly could not be more impressed with the editing and eye she has for capturing the beauty of the landscape in photos. We all looked incredible! Would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer, and will definitely hire her again in the future for family photos!Sent on 10/28/2019
Shelley is a phenomenal photographer, and a pleasure to work with. She knows her business, and manages to get great photos without being intrusive.
Josh and Shelley's work speaks for itself, but add to this that they are both kind, funny, and professional on the wedding day. A pleasure to work with and I confidently recommend them to all my couples seeking a photographer!
Josh and Shelley are the perfect team! They get the most amazing shots and are totally fun and friendly to work with. They both took the time to greet me and were polite in asking if I had any rules about taking photos during the ceremony. It is very clear they are passionate about their work and are true professionals. I highly recommend them and loved working with them!
