MINERVA PHOTOGRAPHY IS AMAZING!!!! If you're debating between photographers, stop right now. Michelle and her husband Carlos are hands down the best you will find. They are extremely talented, sweet, funny, excellent communicators and very professional.Sent on 01/22/2016
On my wedding day, the weather outlook was not good. After our first look, with storm clouds looming, Michelle made sure to take extra bride and groom portraits at the hotel even though it wasn't in our official schedule. I am so thankful that she did because by the time we got to the venue, it was POURING. The rain didn't deter them and after it let up a bit (after 20 minute sitting in the car), she made sure we got all of the pictures we wanted as quickly and efficiently as possible.
In my moments of utter stress and terror from the rain (my ceremony and cocktail hour were supposed to be outside), Michelle's calm demeanor made me calm and she got everything done with limited time. All of our pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I could not be happier with the outcome. My husband and I are so thrilled with the outcome and plan to use Minerva Photography for all of our photography needs in the future.

From our initial phone call I had no doubts that I was in great hands with Michelle! I also work in hospitality (event planning) so I can tell when someone genuinely cares and is passionate about what they do or when you are just another one in the books for them. Michelle went above and beyond with her attention to detail and flexibility! She was very professional from start to end and I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again! Thank You!Sent on 08/09/2019

Amazing Photography Team
I am so happy we used Minerva for our wedding. Michelle and Carlos are an incredible team and they helped make our big day perfect. Michelle was there every step of the way and helped create the perfect day of timeline.Sent on 04/16/2019

We just got married in December and Michelle was very helpful in the planning process. I like that she did a phone interview ahead of time and hoped with setting up the timing and order of everything the day of the wedding. This helped a lot since it was a destination wedding and everything was planned from across the country.Sent on 02/10/2019

Amazing to work with
I was so excited Michelle agreed to do my wedding onboard the Disney Dream! The photographs were amazing and she was able to utilize the spaces to bring magic to our photos. I can’t say enough good things about her and her company!Sent on 01/22/2019

Michelle at Minerva Photography is amazing. Her attention to detail makes your wedding planning even easier. We set up a phone call to learn about her packages, met with her in person to review our timeline and album options and had final coordination calls in between and up until the final day. Her work is amazing and eye to detail will make your wedding photos be a cherished memory. We love Michelle and all our wedding photos~!!Sent on 08/17/2018

Michelle was the absolute best for our big day! We were feeling nervous about working with vendors while living in another state, but Michelle made it so easy. Everything was planned out with amazing detail. She gave us dates for video calls to go over all the wedding day details. If we would’ve had more time in FL, we would’ve booked our engagement photos with her too. We are so in love with all our wedding pictures - we STILL can’t decide which ones to print! We want them all up! If Michelle is available for your date, book it!Sent on 09/28/2018

I cannot say enough great things about Minerva Photography! We used them for both our engagement shoot and our wedding and we loved their work on both! It was so great working with a husband and wife team as they truly work like a fine-tuned machine. They both were so personable, and so organized throughout the entire process. Also, their pricing is a steal for the service and quality they provide. I highly recommend them and look forward to using them in the future!Sent on 08/29/2018

We recently had our wedding on 3/17/18. My husband and I couldn’t be any more happy when we saw our pictures. They are AMAZING!!! The day of the wedding went so fast, but thanks to Michelle and her husband Carlos, our day was captured with some beautiful and memorable pictures.Sent on 05/12/2018
Hiring Minerva Photography was by far one of the best decision we had made for our wedding. Michelle and Carlos are not only very professional and talented, but they both have an amazing personality. They made us feel so comfortable and confident about our day.
Michelle presented me with a timeline that started from the moment my bridesmaids and I got ready. I was so thankful I followed that timeline because it allowed our day to go very smooth.
Michelle also captured our engagement pictures. We are in love with her work. I have hired other photographers in the past for other events, and this is the first time I feel completely happy and satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Minerva Photography!

Choosing Minerva Photography for our wedding day was the BEST decision we made!!! Our engagement photos came out perfect and I know our wedding photos came out just as good. While other vendors can be a headache to work with, Michelle was so helpful throughout the entire process. I had other wedding questions and was able to text her and she was happy to help! (Even if it had nothing to do with photography!) She made us feel so comfortable and pays close attention to detail to make sure every photo is perfect. Her and her husband make a great team! Another great thing is there is no limit to the amount of photos you get, you will find them all on the online gallery. Michelle, thanks so much for everything you did for us. You were amazing and I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know! You're the best!Sent on 12/27/2017

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. I cannot recommend Minerva Photography enough. Their friendly service and performance were the one stress free part of our big day and we are forever grateful.Sent on 08/16/2017

If you are fortunate enough to have Michelle (Minerva Photography) available for your wedding- BOOK HER! She was so helpful in the planning process and truly cared about getting to know the bride and groom and knowing what shots were important to them. I was the wedding planner for my son and his fiance and she was so organized and professional, which made that part of my "job" easier! Both Michelle and her partner/husband Carlos worked so hard all day and night taking pictures and I can't wait to see the results. I'm sure that they will be amazing. Myself and the newly wedded couple HIGHLY recommend Minerva Photography.Sent on 03/27/2017

From start to finish, Minerva Photography was an absolute dream to work with as the photographer for our wedding! Michelle and her husband, Carlos, are incredibly talented, professional, and responsive. Michelle was an integral part of planning before, during, and after the wedding day. She took our engagement photos, organized and printed our guest sign-in book, provided unlimited photos on the day of, and organized and printed our wedding album. We just received the album and could not love it more! I planned our wedding myself without the help of a wedding planner, but Michelle provided some services that a wedding planner normally does! She helped create the timeline for our wedding day which was invaluable to us!! Her experience was so helpful and definitely helped our day run smoothly. Having her husband, Carlos, as the second point of view also provided some awesome shots! They were both so easy to work with and made our whole wedding party feel at ease. I would absolutely recommend Minerva Photography for anyone in need of photography services, no matter the occasion! We can't wait to work with Michelle in the future!Sent on 11/06/2017

Melissa helped me so much with details I didnt know existed. She is super experience with wedding venues. She was always available for any questions via email or phone. Was on time and made sure at all times everything was covered. I would definitely recommend her for any event.Sent on 05/02/2017

Michelle was thorough and professional the entire way. From our first meeting, she was informative and organized. I was completely unaware of quite a few wedding shots/traditions and she offered us options and was kind and patient. We skyped with her as she got our shot lists and timeline ready, and she was very flexible with our tight schedule and special requests for certain photos.Sent on 04/25/2017
Michelle and her timeline were so helpful on the big day, like having a coordinator on hand! She was patient and calm when we were running late and people were mia from the shoot. She made it all work in the end!
Michelle and her assistant/husband were both very professional and worked so well together! We had our ceremony outside and our reception inside, and the pictures turned out fabulous for both! There are so many to choose from, and I love that there is a b/w option for each photo.
You can really tell she cares and takes pride in her work. The presentation of our final photos was beautiful! I really cant say enough good things about Minerva Photography. I knew going into planning my wedding that I was going to spend a good chunk of the budget on photographer, and yes, I did. But it was worth every penny. I would recommend Minerva Photography in a heartbeat.

Choosing Minerva Photography for our wedding was the best decision we made (other than saying "I do"). I was planning my wedding without a planner and without family in the area to help. Not only did Michelle guide me through the wedding photography process, but she also provided invaluable advice regarding the wedding day itinerary, other vendor recommendations, and how to prepare for the big day. She was incredibly responsive whenever I had a question, and she spent multiple hours with me over skype and on the phone planning out the wedding day minute by minute. On the day of the wedding, Michelle and her husband spent the entire day with us. Their energy was relaxed and positive, and they were a joy to be around. My husband and I are both camera shy, but Michelle made things easy and fun. And they got some amazing shots! I could not recommend Minerva more highly.Sent on 02/05/2017

Michelle was a exceptional. I worked with her from my engagement pictures all the way through my wedding day and i cannot express enough how wonderful it was to work with her. From providing a timeline for the wedding day to her sweetness and attention to detail-overall super happy. The pictures came out amazing, super happy with them!! Thank you both and I definitely will remain as a client for future events!Sent on 01/03/2017

I cannot recommend Michelle and Carlos of Minerva Photography highly enough! To start with, our engagement shoot in December was the most positive experience, and even months later, we are still hearing about the gorgeous photos from family and friends after using them in our wedding for materials such as our website and seating chart.Sent on 08/08/2016
On the day of the wedding, Michelle and Carlos not only managed to capture every one of our important moments beautifully, but they also kept the momentum of the day going, even after mishaps from other vendors threatened to send things off schedule. They are incredibly talented, kind, and professional. I am 100% not a picture-taker normally, and I was so worried that my lack of comfort in front of a camera would affect my pictures, but both Michelle and Carlos are amazing at keeping everything and everyone feeling natural, comfortable, and happy - rather than feeling forced into different shots, it felt like we were truly able to enjoy our day and all of that was perfectly captured in our beautiful photos. An enormous thank you to Minerva Photography!!

Michelle and Carlos were fantastic! We planned our wedding long distance, but with a few Skype meetings and one in person we felt so confident that Michelle's personality and skills were just what we were looking for. She and her husband, Carlos are a great, easy-going but in charge, confident and professional team. My family is a little complicated, but the way they run the family portraits there were no issues. She had my Pinterest board printed out, and made sure that we took all the photos that we wanted.Sent on 01/24/2016
During the reception, we got several compliments about how well they blended into the crowd (having been to weddings where the photographers can get in the way on the dance floor).
Jamie · Married on 01/02/2016
What can we say about Minerva Photography? Michelle and her husband Carlos shot my sisters wedding a little more than 3 years ago, so when I got engaged my photographer was already a given since we loved all the pictures from my sisters wedding and Michelle. She was beyond awesome to work with but is also incredibly professional.Sent on 01/08/2016
But my now husband hates taking pictures! while I was able to convince him to take engagement pictures, it was really so I could make sure he was comfortable with Michelle, which I knew would happen! Not only was he comfortable (he actually let me do an wardrobe change), but Michelle got some incredible shots of us and some emotion from him! Not an easy task.
To say that our engagement pictures came out incredible is an understatement!!
Fast forward to our wedding day: So when it came the big day, Michelle and Carlos were everywhere we needed them to be! I knew I'd be completely comfortable but I was worried about husband, sure enough (even though he was sick of pictures), Michelle was able to get some great pictures! Her eye and attention for details in every shot can be seen in every single picture!
We also had a lot of family shots we had to have as well as others to avoid. Michelle was able to navigate through all of it with such ease! While I wasn't able to get all of my family shots before because we were running late all day, Michelle even made it happen in the middle of the dance floor during our reception!
Even the raw images of our 1st look made me want to cry! I have no doubt that the rest of our wedding pictures will be even more incredible! Hiring Minerva Photography again was one of the best decisions we made! We cannot wait to see the finished pictures of the night and relive it all over again!
