Laid back, hands off, fly-on-the-wall documentary coverage of the day, beginning a few hours before the ceremony. I also do all of the standard-issue, mom-mandated posed family groups, but I keep it short and sweet, so that you can relax and enjoy your day. Documentary photojournalism is not a style - not in the sense of it being like a hat that can be easily swapped. It is a dedication to conveying real moments - the subtle interactions between people that make up the human experience. What I offer is more than 20 years experience as an independent documentary photographer, whose images ditch the visual bromides most often associated with run-of-the-mill, cliché wedding photography.

Michelle is a first rate photojournalist and brings that sensibility to her wedding shoots. She's not about cutesy staging of contrived scenes, but rather captures the essence of the day as it unfolds in real time. Her beautifully composed images capture moment after moment of nuanced emotion, shot with a wisdom, empathy and a sense of humor. Cannot recommend her highly enough.Sent on 10/27/2016

We had a great experience with Michelle. Our photos turned out beautifully. We wanted candid, documentary-style photos of our wedding day and this is exactly what she gave us. She was also very responsive whenever we had questions. We would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 01/13/2016

We ADORED working with Michelle. She made us feel relaxed. Before our big day we discussed what we wanted and Michelle explained how we would mesh our special desires with her artistic view. In the end, we received photos that were far better than we ever imagined. She is a treasure!!!Sent on 01/11/2016

Michelle rocks! Amazing images unlike your usual wedding photos. She is not only talented but she's super-cool.
