let's make
something epic

 THE ALL-INCLUSIVE wedding experience STARTS HERE

this day is all about you and your love

I’M HERE FOR YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY  FROM PLANNING TO PHOTOS

i am there from
beginning to end

from the moment you reach out, to after the final gallery is delivered

It is my mission to provide adventure-seeking couples a meaningful, stress-free wedding day without all those outside pressures so you can have your own unique, fun filled day.

Weddings are a time to celebrate love and I am a sucker for those love stories. This is a day about you, it deserves to be planned and photographed with intention and compassion so those important moments last a lifetime. But most importantly, this day is about being the truest you that anyone has ever seen! We take the vision you’ve been pulling together for some time and make it happen. I’ll work with you through the details and be there during the day to capture and document the day so you can re-live the joy over and over again. Plus, I also don’t mind cutting it loose on the dance floor when the time is right.because some of the best photos happen when everyone is grooving to the music and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

how i roll & the process:

I am there to guide you through natural and authentic poses that don’t even feel like poses. Most couples haven’t had professional photos taken together before so I make sure to create an experience that isn’t overwhelming and turns even the most awkward of people into models.

These won’t be like those awkward senior portraits you dreaded taking, this is a time to show off your unique relationship with a bit of glam and fun!

you feel like all her
 focus is on you and your big day

Michelle is such a special and talented person. 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!

Michelle made it feel totally natural and had us smiling and laughing the whole time. 

If you look at Michelle's photos either on this site or her own, they speak for themselves. But they won't tell you is how 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. We had never done professional photography before so we were worried about it being awkward, but Michelle made it feel totally natural and had us smiling and laughing the whole time. 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.

make it happen

She surprised us so many times throughout the wedding planning process with really thoughtful touches and gestures

Choosing Michelle as our photographer was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. 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. She rolled with the punches as we got off schedule on our wedding day and still captured it perfectly. Our photos are simply STUNNING and we couldn't be happier. I absolutely guarantee that you won't regret hiring Michelle – I can't recommend her more!

Q

how far in advance should we book our date?

As soon as you find your vendor, book them right away as most vendors book up fast! Most couples book 10 - 16 months in advance of their wedding date.

How do we reserve our date?

You will need to sign a contract and pay a non-refundable retainer fee (50% for most packages, 30% for all-inclusive packages) Once those are both done, then you are all set! Your date will be officially booked and we will get the party started!

What is the difference between an elopement, intimate wedding, and a regular wedding?

This is a very common question people have. The huge difference is typically the number of people attending. Elopements usually have just the couple and maybe a few friends, less than 10 people and have the flexibility of traveling to multiple locations for events. Intimate weddings can be shorter than traditional weddings and have anywhere from 10 - 30 guests, depending on the location. Traditional weddings have 80+ guests and take up the whole day at one to two locations. Do note that the maximum number we require for intimate weddings are 30 guests.

how far do you travel?

We love to travel so we don’t mind traveling far distances for either an engagement session or a wedding. Our wedding packages include travel up to 120 miles total from Sonoma, CA. Some packages do include travel costs and fees, this will be specified in the package.

do you offer prints and albums?

Heck yes! We have many different print, wall art and album options available. You can even purchase prints and wall art directly from your online gallery. You can add albums on to your package and we have a few different options when it comes to designing your perfect heirloom album.

How do you protect and save photos?

This is a really important question that you should ask any photographer you talk to. We have a very thorough process, as backing up photos is one of the most important parts of photographing a wedding. We upload the images to a hard drive the same day as the wedding to make sure they are safe. We also backup those images to two other hard drives and one more backup to the cloud. We also don’t delete the images of the original memory cards until the gallery has been delivered. After the images have been delivered, we keep one copy of the RAW files on a hard drive and one copy in the cloud for 7 years.

Do you offer discounts?

Not at this time. Our pricing is based on the cost of running a business (taxes, expenses, etc.), our experience, the experience we provide, equipment used, and our time from start to finish. We also believe it would be unfair to our current and future clients if they were to have to pay full cost when others were provided with discounts. We make sure the money you are investing into our services is worth every cent! We do offer many different payment plans if needed and our associate team prices are at a lower price point than Michelle's.

are you insured?

Yes! A lot of venues require proof of liability insurance. If your venue requires it, we can reach out to our insurance company and can provide a copy for your venue within 48 hours.

How does all-inclusive packages work?

There is a method to this madness! Michelle will be your main designer, planner, florist pre-wedding. She will be your main contact during the whole pre-wedding process. On the day of the wedding, she obviously can't be in multiple places at once, so she will have an amazing team to support her. This includes assistant planners, assistant florists, and any other helpful hands she may need. She will be the main photographer on your big day but also the head honcho to the rest of the team making sure everything runs smoothly.
