Michelle graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara in 2003 and immediately jumped into starting her wedding and portrait business thereafter. She has a keen eye for quality and beautiful composition. She is well known with her clients to have a very kind and caring personality which makes her very easy to work with. Although based on the central coast Michelle travels for most of her shoots down to Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara and has gone as far as Costa Rica, Canada and Mexico for destination weddings. Her work is a mixture of film and digital (or as photographers call it, "hybrid"). She chooses to work with multiple formats of cameras to tell the story of each wedding in a style that represents class, beauty, artistry and all the while timelessness. She tells all of her clients that taking beautiful pictures is the "easy part" but the goal in every session is to make it such an enjoyable experience that the true memories of the event are just as amazing as the photos.

Michelle's work speaks for itself. She came HIGHLY recommended by a very well respected photographer in town. She is professional and easy to work with. As soon as I met her and Ben, and then saw examples of her photography, I was sold. Michelle listened to what we wanted photographed on our day but we also allowed her to be free to capture all that we may miss, and boy are we happy with the results! Our order was a tall one (one that required herding cats and keeping time) and she did it! We really wanted our guests to be present for our ceremony so we requested "no photography" from our guests during that time. This, of course, meant we had to completely trust Michelle and Ben with this very special moment that we would never be able to recreate. Short of magic, not sure how they did it, but from start to finish, every tear, hug, walk, angle, point of view shots, family members, guests, were all taken. Our photographs are beautiful, fun, timeless, and immediately take us back to the day that went by in a blur. I would highly recommend Michelle Warren for your very special day. From Rehearsal to reception, staged to candid, very pleased with our created memories. She's the one with the infectious smile and laugh with several cameras around her neck ;) Sincerely, Jackie Bachmann

I cannot begin to describe what an amazing artist Michelle is! She shot both our engagement and wedding photos and was beyond a pleasure to work with. She keeps the experience fun and natural and does an amazing job of capturing such special moments. We now have a little girl and I cannot wait for Michelle to take her photos next time we come to California. Michele thank you for everything!

Michelle was wonderful to work with! Very professional, enthusiastic, and thoughtful. My husband and I can be bit camera-shy, but after spending a few minutes with Michelle and her assistant we felt comfortable and had a great time. The photos are beautiful!
