First things first, we give GOD all the glory for our business. He opens all doors for us, just as only He can open them! Michelle is from Chicago and I was born in South Florida. We are high school sweethearts and got married in May 2001. We act like newlyweds, although it has been over 16 years!!
We have 6 boys and 1 little girl who love art and photography, among so many things, and are always coming up with creative ideas. We home school with them, so it is easy for them to explore the world with us!
We are blessed to have a dream team of amazing people who we adore! They are energetic, hardworking, creative, fun loving and truly love being a part of the Michelle Lawson Photography team. This is because photography is really not a job to us. We all completely love what we do and are so blessed to be living out our passion.
We are passionate about taking beautiful images that capture who you are. Capturing love. Telling the story of a couple in love, marriage, motherhood, fatherhood, childhood. Life.

I don't even know where to begin on how amazing our experience with Michelle Lawson photography was. It was everything we could have imagined and more. From Rob making my husband and his groomsmen completely comfortably (which is really hard to get a group of guys to take a single picture let alone a BUNCH of pictures) to making my girls and I feel like we were just hanging out and having fun. I can't even put into words how much it means to us to have had them do this for and to be able to look at these pictures forever and FALL IN LOVE with it all over again.
We will for sure be using them in the future for whatever is to come!!! :)

If we could give more than 5 stars, we would!! The day my husband proposed to me, I knew I wanted Michelle Lawson Photography to capture our wedding. It was literally the only requirement I had. It didn’t matter what date we were getting married on, as long as the Michelle Lawson team was there! The day I reached out to Steve, I knew I made the right decision. Steve went through everything with me. What to expect, his backup plans, what was included in the different packages they offer, & the price & payment options, as well. I was so excited that we booked Steve & couldn’t wait to work with him. The day of our wedding, Steve & Caleb met me at the hotel that everyone was getting ready at. They both were aware that the first look, of my now husband & I, would be done as I walked down the isle. They kept this in mind the whole day & had everything planned so that the groomsmen nor my husband would see me, or come anywhere close to where I was. Steve & Caleb shot pictures of my bridesmaids & I getting ready, as well the groomsmen & my husband getting ready. We both quickly realized that we had many things in common with both Caleb & Steve. The entire day, Steve & Caleb kept the mood uplifting & helped everywhere they could. Steve & Caleb got every picture we asked for. After the ceremony, my husband turned to me & said, “Now I completely understand why you had to have Steve & his team be our photographer. I’m so happy we chose them.” The relationship we had with Steve & Caleb on that day, really helped to make the day go smoothly & I have faith that everything was captured, from the beginning of the day, to the very end. We are currently anxiously waiting to receive our photos & cannot wait to see the amazing images that Steve & Caleb captured. Michelle Lawson Photography is truly making weddings great again! Thank you so much Steve & Caleb!!Sent on 02/06/2020

Captured all the love, laughs and are totally fun!!
Incredible!!! Highly recommend! You will not regret this decision!! If you’re looking for amazing positive energy this is your team! We had Rob as our main photographer! He rocked every second of our day! Our engagement shoot was just the taste of the fun we were about to have! The MLP team becomes family instantly! I had photo video and Photobooth through them! They quickly become the most talked about vendor of the night because they’re extremely present and catching shots of everything!!!! I cannot wait to see all my pictures and video! This team is super prompt and is very go with the flow and all about what YOU want!!Sent on 01/27/2020

If you need wedding photography or videography or any other type of photography...I highly recommend Michelle Lawson Photography!
I've had the pleasure working with Steve Lawson and his team on many weddings over the years. They always vibe with the crowd and take some of the most amazing shots! I enjoy their sense of humor, style, and work ethic at every wedding. I highly recommend them!
I've worked with Michelle Lawson photography on several occasions. They are professional, polite, on time, and the pictures are absolutely brilliant. A definite good choice for your wedding day.
