Wedding photographer of my dreams!
My husband and I met with many photographers before finding Michelle to shoot our engagement and wedding photos and knew immediately that she was the one we were looking for. Her photos have a beautiful rich tone to them that is timeless - not like the trendy styles you often see that will look dated years later. These are just begging to be framed. Michelle has such a calming presence about her that put us both at ease, eliminated awkwardness and drew out our personalities during photo shoots - we were genuinely laughing and enjoying each other thanks to her quick wit and easy going personality. She also showed us examples of how to pose, which was so helpful! Since we received our wedding photos, my father who is in the printing business commented they were the most stunning wedding photos he had ever seen and I must agree! They are works of art that captured our emotions and the beauty of the venue so well, transporting us back to how that day felt. As a journalist myself, I highly value Michelle's journalistic style and trusted her completely - her experience shooting news gives her an eye for those candid, easy-to-miss moments. This is so hard to find! She seemed to be everywhere at once, and was able to capture things that happened quickly and spontaneously but were my favorite moments from our wedding day. As storms rolled into our outdoor venue, Michelle put me at ease with her calm demeanor, quick ideas, eye for beautiful backdrops and adaptability. She shot stunning photos with my husband and I under umbrellas, in the fog with horses in the background and somehow managed to make our "plan B" tented ceremony look beautiful. She's also extremely efficient and made up for lost time easily when we got off-schedule. Many of the groomsmen commented to my husband about how impressed they were with her (and they've been in dozens of weddings), saying that she kept them on track, breezed through group shots quickly and kept them laughing and having fun. I cannot recommend her enough!Sent on 06/13/2019

The highest caliber wedding photographer
When we began searching for our photographer initially it was a daunting task. Go on to any wedding planning website and you'll be inundated with professionals with varying price ranges and quality of portfolios. Michelle's photography kept popping up on different search engines and I decided to reach out. Of all the potential photographers what stood out first was how polite she was and her quickness to set up a coffee date to discuss our planning. After our first meeting, I had no doubt she would be an excellent photographer and comfortable vendor to work with. What I didn't know is exactly how high caliber of a professional we had just hired.Sent on 08/06/2019
Our wedding was outdoors, and so because of that, it poured rain. We lost power, trees went down blocking guests from arriving to the venue, the ceremony was postponed 1 1/2 hr. The entire time as I was pacing in my bridal suite Michelle was there to help me keep my cool (and also snapping some of the purest candid shots). Once we were finally able to get the show on the road she was out in the rain with us capturing our ceremony. She was unphased, upbeat, helped give me guidance, and was a true professional.
The day we received our wedding pictures I was overwhelmed with joy. They're stunning, and if you didn't know any different our wedding looks absolutely perfect. Not only am I and my new husband completely pleased with her photography the response from friends and family has been overwhelming. A friend said "...You're literally a Pinterest wedding dream". In summary, I truly feel like without hiring Mira Photographs our wedding day wouldn't have been captured in such a gorgeous way, and working with Michelle was even more of a treat. Your wedding day is stressful, but keeping professionals who know how to work around obstacles by your side will make all the difference.
