I honestly do not even know where to begin with how awesome Michelle is. Of course her photography skills are out of this world, but it's the person behind the camera where we really felt we hit the jackpot. Not only is she professional & organized, but also personable with such a positive, happy spirit. She shot our engagement & wedding photos & we could not believe how incredible they turned out & how quickly she got them back to us (took a week to get our engagement photos back & a month to get our wedding photos) . She was a huge part of why our day was so special. She fit right in with us & ALL of my family & friends. They are still talking about how great she is & so are we! And we have the most amazing photos that perfectly captured our wedding day. Michelle, thank you so much for everything. We love you.Sent on 02/20/2018

If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further- Michelle Lauren is the best
I spent a long time researching wedding photographers for my wedding and I could not be happier with the photos Michelle took of our big day. She was great at communicating with us, punctual, extremely professional but also very kind and personable which I appreciated a lot because I tend to tense up in front of cameras.Sent on 11/16/2018
We received way more pictures than we thought we would and Michelle did such a phenomenal job of capturing the laughter, happiness and the love of our wedding in ways we never thought would be possible. Her pictures give us the ability to re-live our wedding day everytime we look at them for all the years to come which is the biggest gift a wedding photographer can give a bride and her groom and we want to thank Michelle for doing that for us.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer and are reading this, look no further- Michelle is the one you want.

Stunning photos, lovely personality!
Michelle is an incredibly talented photographer with a warm, inviting, & fun personality to boot! You will have zero regrets with Michelle's photography. Firstly, her photos are absolutely stunning. She has an eye for the right lighting, postures, configurations, etc. Every photo she took is truly gorgeous to the point where my biggest problem is having too many incredible photos. She is also wonderful at directing/cueing people for photos. She was clear and directive all the while being kind and funny. I especially appreciated her suggestions for poses that would be most flattering for me... a HUGE bonus! She captured fun things that I wouldn't have even thought of, and we are so glad for it (i.e., food, cupcakes, perfume, etc.). Our day was 1,000% more memorable with the lasting imprint of Michelle's amazing work, as well as our memories of her sweet, loving warmth she showed on us throughout the day. I cannot rave more about Michelle, and my 110% satisfaction. Please do not hesitate with Michelle, you will be as thrilled as we were...I guarantee it.Sent on 11/24/2018
