    Michelle Cox Photography - October 2018 Wedding

    Michelle was great! She was very on top of everything that was needed for our engagement and wedding photos and asked all the questions that i would have not thought to ask! She went above and beyond with everything. We got married one week before our friends and we received our photos touched up and everything about 2 months before they received theirs. When she delivered our flash drive with the final photos of the wedding she sent it in a care package that included a frame with her favorite photo of us and cute small gifts along with it! It made me teary eyed with happiness. She is the best!! She also was fun to be around during the whole wedding process and in the party bus :) Our wedding party all liked her as well. Everything was smooth and easy and I am so thankful because there is enough to worry about planning a wedding!

    Very thoughtful, helpful & reliable!

    Michelle was a blessing. After searching for a photographer became a nightmare, I stumbled upon her name. From the moment I contacted her through the day of our wedding, I knew we had made the right choice.
    I was not your typical bride when it came to knowledge on anything related to a wedding. She turned a stressful experience into a effortless one. She is very easy to work with and I never felt like I couldn’t depend on her. We were very happy with her work sand would happily recommend her!

    Boyle/Bulgarella Wedding

    Michelle was absolutely amazing. She was able to get all of the family/friend pictures we wanted in a timely manner and was willing to work with us and our wedding day schedule. The pictures turned out amazing as well. I highly recommend Michelle! She did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be happier with how things turned out.

    Michelle is literally a treat every time I work with her. She's been my go-to photographer for my business and blog for years, so it only made sense that when it came time to get married, she was the only photographer I wanted for the job! She perfectly understood the vision we wanted for both our engagement photos and our wedding day. We wanted quirky, non-traditional, but elegant. Michelle made sure we stayed organized, but had a blast the whole time! She made everyone so comfortable and feel like they've always known her! We ended up having our outdoor wedding/wedding photos during a HEAT ADVISORY! Yikes! But Michelle was there keeping everyone calm, making us look great, and making sure we stayed cool! Beyond highly recommended!

    Michelle was so awesome to work with and we are so happy with how our pictures turned out! She was incredibly flexible with our schedule and was available on many occasions to chat prior to the wedding so that we could hammer out the details. She helped me come up with a plan and gave me a lot of guidance on how to make sure the day went smoothly. She was incredibly responsive whenever I reached out with questions and we got our pictures back even quicker than I had expected.

    Michelle was absolutely wonderful to work with for our May 2017 wedding in Virginia Beach. Even before the wedding, she was incredibly organized, responsive, and communicative, giving suggestions and helping guide us through what we wanted in our wedding photos, and bringing our ideas to life. She helped make our wedding day an absolute breeze, and gave us beautiful images to treasure forever. My husband generally dislikes having his photo taken, and doesn’t typically like looking at the photos that are taken of him. But after working with Michelle, he had nothing but wonderful things to say about her, and more importantly, he actually likes the photos of himself from our wedding day—a huge accomplishment! Her calm demeanor, organization, creativity, and fun-loving spirit were exactly what we needed in the midst of all the normal nerves that come with getting married. I’ll admit, I was a bit nervous about how our photos might turn out, as we had to move our ceremony indoors because it was downpouring on our wedding day, so we couldn’t go outside to get those beach shots we had originally planned for (thanks, Mother Nature). But even with this, Michelle had already scouted out the venue ahead of time just in case, finding lovely little spots to take indoor shots, and she captured some of the most beautiful images—among them some stunning photos of us standing in front of floor to ceiling windows, with the rain pounding against the windows and swirling around on the beach behind us. My photos are perfect. They capture our love, they capture the fun of the day, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for any photo needs.

    Michelle did a fabulous job working with us! She was able to capture our vision perfectly and work around our crazy schedules throughout the process. The quality of our final pictures are beautiful. We have heard nothing but positive things from our friends and families in terms of how great Michelle was with interacting with our guests & bridal party. She was wonderful!

    Before we even booked with Michelle, she was absolutely amazing. Always prompt and very thorough with communication. Upon meeting with her, we felt that she would not only share our vision for our wedding and photos, but also provide us with her professional insight. Our engagement session, while not ideal in terms of temperature (I think it was 3 degrees that day) was fantastic. The entire time Michelle gave us tips and helped to ease our nerves. She was extremely accommodating and helped us get the shots we really wanted. The photos from this session were edited and delivered very quickly and they were amazing! Once the wedding planning went in to high gear, Michelle was a constant source of information and ideas. She basically planned our day! Michelle literally walked us through everything from taking our photos to cutting the cake...and our photos are absolutely amazing!!! We can't possibly speak high enough of her talent and professionalism. Everything was perfect and we will most certainly reach out to her again for future photography needs!

    Michelle is professional, communicates promptly, and mostly importantly: takes beautiful photos. We are thrilled with the pictures she shot of our wedding and the final product photo album was very high quality. Michelle clearly cares about the quality of her work and about her subjects too.

    We got married at a summer camp, so the space was huge. There were a million things happening all over the grounds at any given time. Michelle was wonderful. As many of my guests pointed out, she was always right there, catching everything, but was still totally unobtrusive. Looking at the photos, I can't believe the shots she got. Looking at them, you'd think she'd have been a gnat buzzing right behind me and my guests the whole time. But I barely noticed her! She was completely professional and totally wonderful. And the photos? I'll cherish them forever. I'm so glad I chose Michelle. I'll gladly recommend her for any event.

    Michelle is amazing to work with! My husband and I used her for our engagement photos, as well as, for our wedding! She's a joy to work with, as she really listens to what you are looking for. She is open to traveling and tries her best to accommodate the couple to suit their needs.
    She is very personable and treats you as a friend, not like a business deal.
    She is passionate about her work and wants to provide beautiful, quality photos!
    I would recommend her to anyone and would love to work with her again in the future!
    To see some of her work from my personal experience, I have posted engagement photos and have also shared the link to my wedding photos on my wedding website. Feel free to take a look! :)

    Michelle traveled for our wedding and stayed the late hours we requested. I couldn't be happier with all the wonder pictures we have to choose from. Michelle did a great job listening to our preferences and making suggestions that worked great for our style and taste.

    We got married about 800 miles from where we live. It was important to us to work with a photographer who would help keep our day easy and fun. Michelle went above and beyond to give us the most beautiful photographs to remember our day. She captured great, creative group and couples shots, but the true highlight was her attention and keen eye for the little details that made our wedding, our wedding. She was a blast and a breeze to work with! Not only would I recommend her services for others, but I would absolutely choose her for any photography needs that arise in my future! It's been three years of happiness with our beautiful photos. Thank you Michelle!
