Cotton Weddings was created from Michelle Able Photography. A few years after Kellan started photographing weddings with Michelle, they got engaged and really struggled to find the perfect videographer for their wedding. They knew their wedding couples had been feeling the same way so in 2015, Michelle and Kellan, with the help of Alyssa, ventured into creating light, beautiful wedding films that matched the soft, warm style of their photography. In December 2015, they decided to create a sister company so that they could really focus on creating beautiful wedding photographs & films!
Most importantly, we are a company of photographers & videographers that love God above all else! He is the reason we are able to do what we do and our motivator behind it all. Our belief is that we love because He loved us first and as storytellers, we absolutely love seeing people in love! Love is beautiful to us and, quite honestly, makes our hearts melt. We love all the details the way you fit just perfectly into your fiancee's arms, the way your dad cries when he sees you in your wedding dress, the way your flower girl looks up to you with stars in her eyes those are the little moments that we get to witness and document and it's the greatest gift! We can't wait to hear all about your wedding!!

If I could give them 10 stars I would!!! From the moment we met Michelle and Kellan, we knew they were going to be incredible to work with, seriously. They made our wedding /planning experience so special and memorable. Engagement pictures we're so easy and they made my husband and I feel SO comfortable, and they even made us a love story video during the session to capture our story. This is something we will cherish forever!! My bridals went so perfectly and turned out even better than I had hoped! The day of our wedding, I could not have imagined anyone better to spending the day with us. They captured every detail and special moment and made the whole process so relaxed and fun. When we got our photos back, we were truly blown away with how perfectly they captured our day and everyone who was able to share it with us. They are so professional and such kind and friendly people! We continue to hang out with them after our wedding because we just love them so much!! I have recommended so many people to use them and not one has been disappointed! I can't say enough good things about these people. And I still receive compliments on how great our wedding photos are!Sent on 04/12/2017

I love Michelle Able! Her work is incredible! Not only is she a trained professional with several years of experience and clients across the country, but she is also an incredibly sweet, warm person who makes it easy to open up in front of a camera. She loves seeing couples and families together, and I believe she has a way of making every client feel as if they are the most special client she’d ever photographed. She is very relaxed and helped us loosen up so that by the end of the engagement and wedding photo shoots, we were cracking jokes which allowed her to catch some gorgeous candid moments that brought life to our photos.Sent on 06/26/2014
When we met, I was blown away by her gorgeous portfolio and her down to earth personality. She was always very easy to work with, professional, friendly, and quick to respond. She was very accommodating regarding our wedding schedule, and she has even allowed us to save my “bridal shoot” for something else in the future (e.g. “trash the dress”).
She has a very keen understanding of lighting. She knows how to use the sun’s light to her advantage in order to get soft, glowing, and flattering photographs. Each photo looks bright, crisp, and clean while still being soft and delicate, never unnaturally oversaturated or smoothed over (think orange skin and most quinceañera photos – yikes!). :) She also finds a way to make each photo tell a unique story by often using shallow depth of field, allowing the subject to stand out from the soft background.
The total wedding package we purchased was WORTH it! She is a professional who will provide nothing less than the best. Her wedding packages come with a plethora of goodies from canvas prints, albums, and digital copies to wedding, engagement, and bridal shoots. Having seen the garbage that other area photographers offer at a discount, I would book Michelle 100 times over. Her work is beautiful, and she’s the only photographer I’ll ever book again! SIX stars!

Michelle did SUCH an amazing job with my wedding photos. She was such a pleasure to work with. Everyone is so impressed with her work. Can't wait to work with her in the future!Sent on 09/17/2013
Michelle is an unbelievable photographer. Her uncanny ability to capture the most serene, romantic moments still have us in awe. She has done several personal family photos, styled shoots and more with us and never have we nor any one of our brides that have used her been disappointed. She is a rock star with the camera!
Michelle is truly an amazing photographer. She has a great eye for light and the details that make up life's special moments. She is a fun person, but still makes sure that she captures the moments you really want. We love working with her!
Love working with Michelle. Does great work and we recommend. She even did a family photo shoot for me personally! -DJ FORREST w/ Xceptional DJ's
