Love love love mirelle
I cannot express how incredible Mirelle was for us! Her photographs--both of our engagement and wedding--were OUT OF THIS WORLD BEAUTIFUL. I can't even comprehend how amazing her photography is. Every image is honestly a stand-alone art piece. I can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve received on the engagement and wedding photos we have shared.Sent on 04/17/2019
Not only will you absolutely, positively get the most beautiful photographs with Mirelle, you also get an amazing person! Mirelle was so helpful, fun, responsive throughout both our engagement photo shoot and wedding photo shoot. Mirelle has such a warm, amazing personality that my husband and I (who are extremely shy about taking photos) felt soooo at ease and comfortable.
Mirelle also went above and beyond to make sure all of our photos were perfect--from scouting out locations ahead of time, to coming up with an amazing back-up plan when it was pouring rain on our wedding day. Mirelle is a dream to work with given how detail-oriented she is--she created a perfect wedding timeline that lent to a stress-free and amazing day! Oh and icing on the cake--we received all of our beautiful wedding photos exactly 1 month after our wedding. She kept the magic alive for us!
We can't thank Mirelle enough for her amazing work and giving us the perfect pictures to help us relive the best day of our lives. ❤️❤️❤️

Mirelle was wonderful from start to finish. Choosing her as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made. She was professional, flexible, very friendly, and her photos were breathtaking! Photography was the largest part of our wedding budget, and we absolutely made the right choice.Sent on 07/16/2015
Right from the beginning, we were totally enamored with her photojournalistic style and the beautiful way she works with light and color. We contacted her and hit it off immediately. Over the months, we got to know Mirelle better, from her great sense of humor and love of dinosaurs, to her delightful and talented family. (Including her sister, Cheryl, who is her second shooter and a fantastic photographer.) On the day of our wedding, it felt like we had two extra friends there with us who just happened to be incredible photographers.
We got married on the beach, so our first look photos had a rush of wind and the ceremony itself was set against a backdrop of crashing waves. Mirelle captured the warm glow of our evening reception perfectly, the scrumptious food, and--most importantly--the sense of celebration and love surrounding our party. We could not have imagined a more perfect day, or more perfect photographers to share it with.

What is there to say about Mirelle that hasn't already been said? She is incredibly talented, organized, down to earth, patient, and makes being photographed feel really natural, comfortable and fun.Sent on 01/04/2015
Mirelle and her husband flew out to Maui last November to shoot our wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House. She had shot there before so I felt confident that she knew the venue and was comfortable shooting there.
On the day of the wedding, Mirelle and her husband Patrick (second shooter) came and set up without anyone noticing. She impressed me with how organized and thoughtful she was. She remembered the bridal party by name and spent time before the wedding collecting souvenirs from the beach for us. I felt confident that she would get all the shots that I wasn't able to see because I was getting ready for the ceremony. We are excited to see the final photos! We've gotten great feedback on our engagement photos - I loved the soft natural lighting of the photos.
Mirelle is also so sweet! She offered to pick up lunch for me and the bridal party and also stayed a little longer than the time we had talked about because we ran a bit behind schedule.
From the first email and phone call to follow ups after the wedding, I couldn't be more happy that we chose Mirelle to capture our special day. Thank you so much Mirelle!
What can I say!?! I love Mirelle more than I could ever write on a review! She is simply amazing and if there's anyone that you're considering hiring for your photographer I will tell you right now there isn't any better! Her style is incredible, her personality is just as gorgeous as she is and she will keep you smiling and so comfortable throughout the whole process! She is truly a gem to this industry and I would be devastated if she ever moved away! Check out the styled shoots we have done together and give her a call right now! http://www.stylemepretty.com/2012/12/03/california-winter-glitter-photo-shoot-from-mirelle-carmichael/ http://www.stylemepretty.com/2012/05/29/vintage-wedding-photo-shoot-by-mirelle-carmichael-photography/
It is always an absolute pleasure when I work with Mirelle! She is very easy to work with on the day of, and takes beautiful pictures. I would highly recommend Mirelle Carmichael Photography to anyone that is looking for a great photographer.
As a wedding planner, one of my biggest concerns, leading up to a wedding day, is communication, and Mirelle was awesome! She answered all my emails, and phone calls in a very prompt manner. The wedding we worked together was such an amazingly beautiful affair, and Mirelle captured every second of it! I would/will recommend her in a second! Thanks, Mirelle, for providing me with such beautiful images! Jennifer Norton Flawless Functions
