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!

Nothing but wonderful things to say about Shelley!
Shelley is absolutely amazing to work with! We searched through tons and tons of photographers before we reached out to book with Shelley. We decided that our photographer would be one of our "splurge" items, and it was worth every single penny!!Sent on 03/16/2021
We had an engagement shoot with Shelley in October 2019 in the Appalachian mountains...with two dogs, and the pictures turned out amazing. She later shot our wedding in October 2020, and once again, just stunning pictures! She scouted out shooting locations and was able to capture those gorgeous golden hour photos each time she photographed us.
Shelley is a great communicator, so kind, and laid back...just what you want out of a person who will be spending your entire wedding day with you. We never felt awkward during our engagement/wedding shoot-- she helped us out with some posing, but always kept things light and made it fun. I have nothing but great things to say about her talent and how she runs her business! We've had endless amounts of people reach out to us wanting to know who our photographer was. We will cherish these photographs forever!

Love love love our wedding photos!
Shelley is an excellent wedding photographer. She was very flexible with our elopement during COVID. Our wedding photos were magical and whimsical. They look like they were in a fairy tale and in a magazine. I’m truly obsessed with the quality and beauty of our photos. Shelley is also really easy to work with and has a strong attention for details. She gave us a huge variety of photos and edited about 450. I was truly impressed and I highly recommend her for your wedding.Sent on 07/09/2020
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!
