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.Sent on 05/10/2021

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

Kate is Amazing!!
My fiancé and I can’t say enough good things about our experience working with Kate. My first impression after initially inquiring about engagement pictures was that she was incredibly responsive and easy to communicate with. Kate knows Yosemite like the back of her hand, and planned everything out perfectly, which made our day completely stress free as we shot in five different locations. We were instantly comfortable with her, like she was an old friend. My fiancé and I had never had professional photos taken before, and we’re both a bit goofy, but Kate managed to help us figure out exactly what to do and made the experience easy and fun. We received a few preview pictures the same days as our shoot and knew we made the right choice when we reached out to Kate. We got the remaining pictures back within a matter of days and were instantly obsessed! We couldn’t believe how well Kate managed to capture the moments between us, and were impressed that none of the pictures looked staged. We loved all of the pictures so much - from the action shots of us climbing on rocks and trees, to the endearing moments between us, to the candids she managed to catch (seriously though, ended went to buy our “favorite” photos then ending up loving them all, so we decided to buy an album since we couldn’t make up our minds!). We are so thankful for Kate - she created a magical experience for us that we’ll always be able to look back on. We can’t recommend her enough!!Sent on 05/08/2021
