About Lieb Photographic LLC

classic, joyful, romantic

www.instagram.com/liebphotographic

Introduction:

Hello and welcome! My name is Michelle and I am passionate about providing timeless images for those who cherish love, treasure memories, adventure together and share a sentimental heart. I love to celebrate and capture one of the best days of your life with honor, respect and joy.

I completely understand firsthand that planning a wedding is one of the most exciting and sometimes confusing things you will ever undertake. In understanding that, I have made it my goal to make the photographic part of your process fun, simple and enjoyable. My heart is to give you an incredible photographic experience from beginning to end.

I want your experience to be all it can be.  I want you to feel as strong a love for each other as my husband and I do and to feel natural, happy and comfortable in front of the lens. You should look back with love and fondness on every moment captured.  A decade down the road from now, I want you to see just how classic and timeless you look even though the styles may have changed.  I hope that you will smile together at your hair before it started greying and laugh at the sweet wrinkle lines you see in each other’s faces fifty years from now.  So that’s why I do things like I do…encouraging you in your love and keeping YOU in mind, giving you a wonderful photographic experience. 

As much as I love photographing the rings, the florals, and the other lovely details of your day, my focus still lies largely on the tender moments, the shared laughter, the stunning portraits together and the unexpected expressions and the gathering of friends and family.  I want to capture the moments in your wedding day that you will treasure forever.  I whole-heartedly believe that your wedding is not just about that one day, but the entire experience from the planning stage to the growing old together.  I want to provide you with images that you can look back upon and smile, laugh, and remember…to remind you of your beginning and your foundation.  Your photography is a large part of your wedding experience and it should be fun, real and memorable.

Photographic Biography in Michelle's words:

So here's my photo backgorund!  I fell in love with photography and art from a very early age.  I first remember my father's photography (hand developed) and loved to see images of my mother at the local fruit market in New York, Alaskan wildlife from my dad's travels and early images of a crazy little toddler (yup, that was me) and still later, my baby brother.  My love of the camera never ceased and I went on to receive my bachelor's degree from James Madison University with a major in art and later, a masters degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, specializing in photography and the book arts. I later taught photography as well as advanced placement studio art and advanced placement art history at Liberty High School in Bealeton, Virginia from 2002-2013.  After the birth of my favorite photographic subject...my adorable little son, I retired from teaching to focus on being mommy and on the business of photography.

I have continued throughout the years to learn more about digital, traditional, historic, and experimental photographic processes by attending workshops and classes through the Center for Alternative Processes in New York City, the Visual Studies Workshops in Rochester, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond. I received several grants to assist in my continued education in the photographic processes.

I still love the historical processes such as tintypes and ambrotypes as well as the experimental processes like lumen printing and pinhole photography.

And I LOVE to shoot medium format film on request!

I am so grateful that Michelle was able to capture the beauty and love from our perfect wedding day. It is hard to put into words how in love we are with all of photographs, they are so great. Better than I ever expected and fulfilled all my childhood dreams of my perfect wedding day to remember forever. So many people have been messaging me with how amazing they are and I couldn’t agree more. Can’t stop looking at them!!

I think I'm in love does not accurately capture my feelings for Michelle, I LOVE this woman! We were referred to Lieb Photographic, LLC by my Matron of Honor who utilized Michelle's photography services for her five year wedding anniversary photos. As soon as I browsed her website and gallery I knew this was the perfect photographer for the look I wanted to capture our special day. Michelle's lighting style is so light and airy which is exactly how I want to remember this day forever. We scheduled a consult with Michelle and fell in love over coffee, we did not need to look any further for our photographer. Michelle was so wonderful that she even provided recommendations for other wedding vendors she is familiar with and we ended up selecting our Florist/Day of Coordinator (The Posey Detail) and hair/makeup (Yisell Santos) from her list of colleagues. This was the first time my husband has done professional photos and Michelle made him feel so very comfortable in front of the camera. You can literally see the transition during our engagement photos of when he started feeling comfortable. It's so so smart that Michelle includes the engagement photo services because it really does allow her to get to know you as a couple and for you to get to know her shooting style. Speaking of shooting style...you will never feel uncomfortable in your photos because Michelle does not put you into super posed looks! All of our photos are so light and natural because of this; she is so skilled at capturing the natural chemistry between a couple. Please do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with Lieb Photographic because I know you'll love her too!

I researched many, many wedding photographers, but as soon I looked at Michelle’s work I knew I wanted her as my photographer. Michelle took the time to meet with me and answered any questions that I had. She gave small gifts and an entire booklet filled with wedding day advice!

Michelle was extremely helpful, and closer to the wedding spent her evenings and free time trying to fit in all the shots I wanted for the day. I couldn’t’ be happier with all the photos she got!

She did an amazing job the day of; keeping track of time and keeping everyone together. I didn’t worry about a thing!

I was married at the end of October and the fall foliage was in full force. Michelle was able to capture the beauty of the leaves and got some gorgeous sunset pictures! She was able to capture each special moment during the ceremony and reception.

When the pictures came back they were absolutely amazing! I cannot express how beautiful they are!

I got my pictures back quickly, and the online viewing is perfect. I was able to share them right away and order any prints I wanted.

If you want amazing, gorgeous, and stunning pictures, Michelle is the photographer for you!

Michelle is so talented and kind, her photos are a dream come true, and she cares so much for her clients! xo

We were so fortunate to have Michelle lend her artistic eye capturing photographs around the property of our new venue on a few different occasions. Having worked with her personally for years, I knew she would be the best photographer to help us get started when launching to the wedding community and engaged professionals.

Time slips away so quickly once an event has ended....it has been far to long and I apologize for not singing your praises sooner! Working with you was a dream. You make everything so smooth...easy and inclusive. I love the way you capture every little detail with your photographs...I believe your talent knows no boundary. I look forward to working with you again! Michelle Gillespie, Owner Occasions By M&K

Lieb Photography has always done an exceptional job for our brides and grooms. We highly endorse them!

Michelle is absolutely wonderful to work with and collaborate. Not only does she have an excellent eye for the best photos but also has a knack for catching details in a creative way.
