Repeat after me: there’s no right or wrong way to get married! What if your wedding felt less like an elaborate performance, and more like a crazy fun experience where the real you comes out to party with the love of your life? I bet you’d have a karaoke booth, sip craft beer flights with your whole crew, or make a cheeky beeline to In ‘N Out after your ceremony. You’re cool like that.
It takes a little extra TLC to plan an authentic wedding or elopement that has you and your person written all over it, so I’m here to streamline and infuse fun into the whole shebang for you! With planning, floral design, & photography in my wedding toolbox, I’ll help you hone in on and amp up the unique elements that make your love so epic.
If there’s one thing that low-key sets my soul on fire, it’s crafting and capturing an experience that celebrates the fireworks between you two. No matter who you are or what your jam is, every couple’s love story deserves a visual storyteller who’ll go the extra mile to showcase your particular magic. Whether you want to spend a cozy elopement day just goofing around with your love, or go full glam and bring the drama with stunning editorial shots, I’m your gal.

The trusted long-time friend who’ll tick off wedding planning to-dos like it’s no biggie. The floral artist with a knack for setting the scene with luscious arrangements. The detail-oriented nerd who’s got a playbook for everything from rain to wardrobe malfunctions, so the only thing you have to worry about is busting your baddest moves on the dance floor.
Stop hyperventilating over where to start, and chillax while I craft your dream day. From scouting the perfect vendors, to bespoke floral design, to hair & makeup, to officiating your vows, all the way down to quirky little touches like my elopement picnic basket for foodie couples — better believe I’ve got you every step of the way (and so does my camera). photos, and you'll love the process of getting them too.
Let’s ditch the awkward posing and just have a blast together! Your wedding is your day to feel awesome in your own skin, and I’m here to capture every wild and glorious minute of it.

For a lush green touch, I’ll even craft custom floral arrangements with your favorite botanicals and flowers!
We did an engagement & elopement shoot, which I highly recommend. The engagement shoot was tons of fun and it was nice to her to know her before the elopement. Her photos are so gorgeous, and we feel like she really captured our wedding in the perfect way. She is so fun and easy to work with. We'll definitely work with her again if we have any other special events we want captured.
Not only is she incredibly talented–her portfolio is seriously stunning–she is so kind, friendly, supportive, and attentive. Beyond being extremely professional and dedicated, you can tell she really cares about capturing your day and making it perfect. She surprised us so many times throughout the wedding planning process with really thoughtful touches and gestures, truly it was a joy to work with her. Our photos are simply STUNNING and we couldn't be happier.
Michelle made the whole process so easy and FUN for the two of us. She was very flexible and helped us pick a time and location for our engagement shoot (she had great suggestions), met with us to go over what we wanted, did a site visit to the venue to scope out good shots, and was a great partner on the day of the wedding who made it fun and totally stress-free. I could go on, but here's the gist. If you hire Michelle, you'll love your photos, and you'll love the process of getting them too.
She calmed us, kept us organized, was with us every step of the way, and is really just a great person to be around. Most importantly, her work is stunning. She really captured the spirit of our personalities and who we are as a couple. Which is not easy, since my husband rarely has his eyes open in pictures and I can’t sit still longer than a minute. We didn’t even need a videographer; Michelle captured every moment we wanted so elegantly.
She is a true professional to work with and has such a beautiful eye. She is the happiest vendor we worked with and is truly excited for you on your big day. That kind of positivity is infectious and who wouldn't want to be around that? Out of the 4 photographers that we interviewed, Michelle stood out. She went the extra mile in showing her care for us as clients. I got so emotional reliving our wedding when looking through the finished photos. I will for sure cherish my wedding photos for the rest of my life.
My husband and I are beyond grateful to have had Michelle as our photographer during our elopement at San Francisco City Hall. We didn't have any engagement photos taken so we didn't know what to expect and we were a bit nervous. Michelle put us at complete ease! She's so friendly and funny, and she really brought out the best in us, which translated to our photos.
My husband and I fell in love with Michelle's talent and personality. I am incredibly awkward in front of a camera and Michelle somehow managed to tame it. She is very thoughtful and makes you feel like all her focus is on you and your big day. Behind the scenes, she has so many clients, yet you never feel her time or energy divided. She sincerely cares about capturing your big day and being part of what makes it special. I cannot recommend anyone more than Michelle. I promise you'll never regret hiring her!
She was very friendly and she put us and our family at ease while taking out photos. She was really flexible with timing. And the photographs were amazing. We ended up with so many photos that we absolutely love!
