    Incredibly talented with the local knowledge you NEED!!

    When I first began planning how I was going to propose to my [then] girlfriend, I knew two things. That I wanted to do it on Glacier Point Road in Yosemite and that I wanted to make sure there was someone there to photograph this special time. So I started scrolling and very quickly found myself looking through all of Kate's incredible work. Unfortunately, due to the time of year, Glacier Point Road had not opened for the season yet. Kate suggested a few alternate locations that would offer a similar aesthetic. Then, the day before, Glacier Point Road opened unexpectedly early. Before I knew it, Kate messaged me with the good news, informing me of the new plans and timing for the best lighting. There are plenty of great photographers out there that can capture a proposal, but there are none with the local knowledge and intimate connection with Yosemite that can truly capture the entire moment. Kate's ability to photograph the abundant Yosemite scenery while still catching all the emotions is truly unique. I could not be happier with the entire experience. Every time we look at these pictures, it takes us right back to the best day of our lives thus far. For that, we are truly grateful.

    Perfect Wedding Day/Wedding photos EVEN IN THE RAIN!

    100 out of 10 stars for Kate. I cannot say enough positives about the entire experience. Amazing communication leading up to our wedding. She planned our entire morning, had amazing suggestions for spots to go to in Yosemite. We didn’t have to think for a second the entire day of what to do, she had it all planned! She even picked me up at my hotel so she could drive me into Yosemite, so my soon to be husband didn’t see me prior to our first look! We could not have asked for more stunning photos, and speaking of photos, she had them edited and back to us FOUR days after our wedding! Absolutely unheard of! I cannot recommend her enough. If you need a photographer around the Yosemite area, do not look any further. You won’t regret it for a second!

    Kate Michelle Photography - engagement session.

    What a fantastic shoot with Kate at Yosemite on September 28th! This was our 3rd attempt as we had to reschedule twice due to the Creek Fire. Kate was very flexible and responsive to last-minute change of plans.

    Kate's photography has a unique, romantic and dream-like style. Her photos are perfectly exposed and sharp, the composition is fantastic and she had the ability to capture those
    natural, intimate moments between her subjects.

    Kate is very focused and knows how to direct the shoot. At the same time, she's open
    to improvisation and new ideas. She knows Yosemite inside out. She knows where and when to
    shoot to get the best light and atmosphere. Can't wait to have Kate documenting our wedding day in late October! Hubert& Ashley
