Capturing memories
Pristine quality
Seasoned with weddings


Hi. It’s Michelle. And I’m the wedding photographer who lets you relive every moment of your day when you look at your wedding photos... not just a record of who was there and what happened, but how you FELT at the moment that image was captured. You cried coming down the aisle? Perfect! You laughed because the best man forgot the rings? Hilarious! Three hour portrait sessions? No way!

Couples (and moms) ask me all the time…“How did you get that shot? I didn’t even see you!” That’s my style… unobtrusive and authentic. My work has been described as, “crisp, fresh, artful, spirited, sophisticated”. Having photographed hundreds of weddings in my 15+ years in business, I promise to capture the true essence of yours... the specialness that makes you unique.

I truly love what I do and it shows in emotional, meaningful photography.

Give me a ring. I can't wait to hear all about your big day!

Seamless, beautiful wedding photography experience

We had the pleasure of working with Michelle for our wedding in May 2022. We were drawn to her more editorial, authentic style, and that shone through in our final wedding photos— which we loved. Her get to know you and booking process is super straight forward. Michelle is approachable, understanding, and kind— we never felt like we were pressured or rushed into making any decisions. We met up with her for an engagement shoot (and to get to know each other a bit more) and had a blast walking around the property she was living in at the time (a gorgeous barn/vineyard combo!). She made us feel relaxed, at ease, and not at all like we needed to pose, perform, or pay attention to anything but having fun and being with each other. Michelle coordinated her schedule directly with our coordinator, and she was perfectly available, on time, and communicative in the weeks before and on our wedding day. Michelle was absolutely seamless— she captured sweet, funny, and intimate moments without us feeling like we were torn from our event. We enjoyed the majority of our cocktail hour, and maybe stole away for 20 minutes for beautiful sunset shots right after dinner. Each photo had so much personality and life to it, and we are so thrilled with how our wedding day was depicted: as it was. On top of all of her photography work, the package we chose included a beautiful keepsake: a high quality, Italian-made album. It is absolutely stunning, and we look at it every day. Michelle assisted with layout and flow, and we couldn’t be happier.

Photos are such an intimate part of the wedding day experience, and if I were to do it all again, I would go with Michelle again, no question.

A dream to work with!

Michelle is truly someone special. From the first meeting we had with her when we were evaluating vendors for our wedding, we expected what would be a 30 minute meeting at her house turned into a 2.5 hour conversation about life, love and everything in-between. That's when we knew we wanted Michelle to photograph our special day. It had seemed like we'd known each other for years and years felt a connection with Michelle that we didn't have with anyone else. And that is just who Michelle is -- she's kind beyond belief, funny, and most importantly makes you feel confident beyond your wildest dreams. She is your ultimate hype woman, and is there capturing all the moments when you think she's not around. During our wedding day, Michelle was a best friend, someone who was there to share in all the joys and emotions that the day brings -- from first looks with my husband and father-daughter first looks, where we all cried from emotions. Her photos and work speak for themselves as each picture tells a beautiful story and will live on for years and years to come. Her second shooter on the wedding day was terrific to work with too and I cannot recommend Michelle enough. She is someone incredibly special to us and we cannot wait to take more photos over the years with Michelle as our photographer.

Amazing Photographer!

Michelle is an amazing photographer! We used her for both our engagement and wedding photos. She took beautiful photographs! We were especially amazed by the sunset photos she took of us. She is so fun to work with and listens to your vision for how you want your photographs to turn out.

What can I say about "MICHELLE WALKER PHOTOGRAPHY". One of the most brilliant & talented people/photographers I know. She has not only touched the lives of my wedding couples but moved me as a mother to my inner core when she did a photo shoot of my son days before he deployed out for Afghanistan-300 emails arrived after the photo/slide show went up. My son does not like photos but has a connection that is beyond words!!! And the photos show! So if it's a wedding couple or your child. The photos will inspire and touch your soul. I enjoy Michelle's deep connection with all her wedding couples and friends. She is someone that at our house-We like to refer as Michelle and Craig(her husband) our most wonderful and talented friends! Cheers to you! Kimberly
