Michele is not only an INCREDIBLE photographer, but an amazing, fun, calm person to work with. We first got to know her during our engagement shoot. My husband and I were both nervous because we are not used to being photographed and were unsure how we would look on film. Michele made the entire experience so comfortable for us but I will admit that we were still nervous about how they would turn out until she sent them to us and they were absolutely amazing. She knocked all of our expectations out of the park and made our photos look natural and beautiful in a way that we didn’t even know that we could pull off (ha!). She had us laughing and smiling real smiles all day long. After this experience I had absolutely no doubt in my mind that she would make our wedding photographs nothing short of perfect. I did not stress or wonder how our wedding photos would turn out because I knew she would do an amazing job. During our wedding day, she showed up and was calm and quiet, while still being totally in control of the situation (not an easy task with a wedding party of 18); she was organized, quick, and calm and did not take unnecessary time from the day. All of our pictures are absolutely stunning. She took the time during our couples portraits to make sure we were facing on our sides that we prefer, that the sun wasn’t in our eyes, and took a wide variety of shots to make sure we had plenty that we loved. And we DO! We love our entire album and cannot thank her enough for capturing the most special day in the best way. We love you Michele and we can’t thank you enough! We would 100% recommend her to any family, friend, or stranger looking for a special photographer. Cheers!
Michele! You far exceeded our expectations! … And yet somehow I think we knew you would. Thank you so much for helping to turn the memory of our wedding into an heirloom we will both cherish the rest of our lives. You really went above and beyond (and even outside your job description) and we want you to know that it did not go unnoticed. Thank you for doing more than your fair share to make our day beautiful and stress free.
Michele did a great job of capturing all the beautiful moments we shared during our wedding. She made us feel very comfortable the whole time and made the experience really fun! She is very professional and great at what she does.
Michele is an amazing photographer — her work is stunning. I mean, the photos speak for themselves — they’re absolutely perfect! She incorporates and thinks about every detail. She’s really listens to her brides and makes sure she fulfills their vision. She was so accommodating as my photographer and was so adaptable, even when things didn’t go as planned (like when it started raining!). Not only does she take amazing pictures, she has the best personality to work with. She is very professional, kind and really made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. I just love working with her! I highly recommend her to all future brides!
Michele! Wow, it was such a blessing to work with you. You were so kind, affirming, professional, and your work is BEAUTIFUL and worth every single penny. We are so in love with the way you captured not only our wedding but us and the essence of who we are. We appreciated your thoroughness and thoughtfulness throughout the whole process. You took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for, and you went ABOVE AND BEYOND what we asked for! We will cherish the memories of our wedding that you so beautifully captured our whole lives long. Thank you, thank you!
Michele did our surprise engagement shoot and she did such a wonderful job!! She was so helpful as we tried to get our best angles and she encouraged us the whole time so we felt soo comfortable. Michele captured us as a couple and allowed us to truly be ourselves to get amazing pictures that reflected our personalities. She was very quick in the turnaround to get our pictures to us the next day (since we were so excited and DYING to get them out!!). We have had so many friends and family members tell us that the pictures turned out so well and we truly enjoyed working with her. She has such a kind and caring heart — we cannot recommend her enough!!!
You are so friendly and warm, and make awkward photo shoots surprisingly comfortable and natural. Communication leading up to the wedding was very clear and organized, and the style of your photography is just beautiful. I love that you really made an effort to get to know us so that you were able to capture our personalities, and the fact that you were willing to travel was obviously hugely important to us. I will definitely be using you again in the future for any other professional photography needs we may have!
Michele was all that we wanted in a photographer and more. She was kind, cared about what we wanted, was fair priced, and really went above and beyond to make our wedding experience special. We loved all of our photos and would/will recommend Michele to anyone!
Michele was an amazing wedding photographer! She was extremely organized and prompt and helped us feel prepared for the day. Michele created a timeline for our day so we knew exactly when everything needed to take place. She was very easy to communicate with and answered emails promptly. When we had questions for her, she met with us so we felt completely ready for our wedding day.Michele is so very kind and patient and encouraging! Our pictures are incredibly beautiful and timeless and we will treasure them forever. We are beyond thrilled that we chose Michele for our wedding photographer. Truly, it was the best decision we made in our entire wedding planning process!
Michele, thank you so much for capturing our special day so perfectly. We’ll cherish our photos and memories always. You played a big role in our wedding planning and day, and we want to thank you for your support, professionalism, and friendship. Wishing you a wonderful 2018 filled with love, weddings, photos, and lots of fun!
We loved having you as our photographer; the photos are absolutely incredible!! We loved working with you because we were able to do an engagement photo session; this meant we were a lot more comfortable with poses and taking instructions when the day came! Also you made sure to capture all the small moments and gave us different angles to remember our wedding day! Our photos are just perfect — we love how light and simple they are.
Her blog is amazing and made us feel famous! I loved how much she cares about her clients and doesn’t make us feel like a number. She knows who we are and our story. I would love to see her business grow in the future and will be referring her to everyone I know!
Michele was a Godsend to our wedding! She was actually the very first decision we made on our list of vendors because she made the decision so easy. You can tell as soon as you speak with Michele that she loves what she does, and if you’re going to have a shadow the entirety of the most important day of your life you want someone who feels blessed to be able to do what they do with a positive attitude behind your back. Her pictures speak for themselves, so much so that I thought she was going to be 2-3 times the price... in comparison to what I see she’s maybe mid to higher-mid priced. What absolutely blew us away about Michele is her ‘bedside manner’ — she was exactly what we needed her to be at every moment without ever being distracting or overpowering. She literally made our entire day better because she went as far to work with our DJ and caterer to keep us on schedule... seriously what photographer does that?! I can’t say enough good things about Michele and look forward to her photographing all my future keepsake moments.
Michele was absolutely incredible to work with! She completely took any stress or worries I had out of the process of engagement and wedding pictures. We had absolute trust in her expertise, ideas, suggestions, and eye for beautiful photography. She also went above and beyond, and had suggestions and advice for absolutely any aspect of our wedding that I needed help with. She was more than gracious with her time and went out of her way to set up appointments to meet with us, so that things were planned out well and to get to know Ross and me better. We can’t say enough praises regarding the finished products we received- the pictures from our wedding are gorgeous and perfect!! Overall, I could keep going on and on about what an amazing process Michele made the whole experience to be. We are very blessed and thankful that we were able to share the day with her and have it captured so beautifully.
We have used Michele for 2 Senior Portrait sessions, and 1 wedding (so far!) We absolutely LOVE our photos, but even more than that we love the relationship we’ve built with her, and know it will continue! We’ve gotten so many requests from friends and family wanting to know her contact info, and many have chosen her, and loved the outcome and the process as much as we have. Cannot recommend her highly enough — she’s a joy to work with, and the product is fantastic. Thank you so much for your work with the Melkonian family :) We adore you!
Michele was amazing to work with! She really captured our special day and made sure everyone was comfortable and excited to take photos. My family really appreciated all the photos she took, and she got them to us really quickly considering how many shots she had, and the fact that she was moving houses! We have looked back on our photos many times, and are so happy we chose Michele, and that Michele chose us to photograph! Each photo had so much thought put into it, and these are memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you for capturing our wedding day, and for being so accommodating and kind throughout the whole process!
OH MY GOSH, Michele! I LOVE them! Thank you thank you thank you! This is honestly the first time I’ve had a picture of myself that I absolutely love. The pictures actually made me cry! You did a great job. Thank you so, so much!
We can’t begin to put into words our gratitude for you being our photographer, as well as a support through our entire engagement. Your photos are truly incredible and something we will cherish for our entire lives. Thank you for making the whole process so simple and stress-free, always being available for suggestions and advice, and showing us the love of Christ through your kindness and compassion. It has been such a blessing to share this journey with you. Thank you for everything!

Thank you for the detail shots as well!! You are a wonderful and amazing photographer!! Love your work! and I am obsessed with my branding lifestyle session!!
The pictures are amazing. Literally amazing. The engagement photo shoot was KEY. It helped us realize what it was like to get pictures taken. You should have everyone do this. I thought that you were extremely creative, almost more creative than we could have hoped for. You are the sweetest person, and so helpful and kind. The finished product is over and beyond our expectations — and believe me we truly cherished the details. We love you, Michele with ONE L!!!
Thanks so much for taking our school pictures. Over and over again I heard students remark at how comfortable you made them. You took time for each of us to have a nice sitting and to enjoy the experience. You’re the best!
These pictures are just stunning. What you have, my dear, is beyond talent. Thank you so much for these and for the love and care that went into capturing these crazy lovebirds.
Michele, this is stunning. I found myself laughing and crying while reviewing this at work. I’ll look it over again at home but please know that we are already totally blown away. You’ve captured our wedding day in the most gorgeous way possible and it just makes me so happy to see these pictures. Thank you.
Thank you, Michele! These are wonderful. I usually don’t like pictures of myself, but these are beautiful.
From the engagement photos to the wedding photos, Michele was attentive, professional and enjoyable to work with. we are overjoyed at how amazing the photos turned out. We couldn’t be happier and would recommend Michele to everyone! We will definitely be calling her in the future to take more photos.
I will always use Michele for my photography needs. There is no one I trust or like more! She is so easy to work with, is always on time, totally prepared, and most of all puts those being photographed at ease to get their best photo. I have scheduled over 70 corporate headshots with her at my past two companies, and they all look and feel the same: Flawless. I can’t say enough about her personality as well — she is so warm and friendly. Her photoshopping skills are superb as well — always natural and brings out the best features. I would recommend her for any type of photography, especially weddings, family portraits, senior portraits, and corporate headshots and team shots.
Just a quick hello and want to let you know that these are our favorite family photos … that we’ve ever had taken! Thanks a ton!
Wow Michele! You are so very good at what you do. I have so rarely liked a photo of myself. This one is great! Thank you so much!
Thank you for everything. Thank you for climbing Shrine trail with us to capture the most stunning photos we have ever taken. Thank you for capturing the great day of our life. Thank you for being so positive and creative. We are so grateful to have met you. Wishing you all the best! Can’t wait for our next shoot!
Thank you so Michele!! You did such a nice job and you are so delightful to be around!
Very flexible and encouraging photographer who was a huge blessing to us on our wedding day! She capture the most beautiful moments.
Michele was our favorite vendor to work with!! She is so sweet and amazing at what she does! She guides you in posing to get you amazing photos that you’ll cherish forever. She genuinely cherishes each and every one of her clients!! By the end of your first meeting with her, you’ll feel like she’s one of your own family members that you love so much and are so comfortable around. She captures every single detail of your big day and makes sure you get that photo you really want. Her candid captures are amazing, too. You won’t regret choosing Michele and the quality and quantity of photos you receive are worth every penny.
We loved working with Michele. She was patient, kind, supportive, and above all an amazing photographer. She goes above and beyond to help you capture the photos you only dream of.
Thank you so much for the photos, particularly the quick turn-around! They look amazing! We have already picked out a few that we want to put on canvas and a Christmas card. We are so grateful for your kindness and for making sure that we had an optimal location and colors for fall. We had such a great experience with you and will definitely contact you for our future family photos. We will also be passing your name on to others if we hear that they are looking for someone.
We have had Michele take a few years of family photos. When we adopted our baby boy she took our first family pictures after he was ours. Since then she has taken other ones and followed our journey of a family of 3. Michele is gracious, kind, patient and professional. She puts you as ease and makes you laugh. She makes you feel beautiful, special and confident. She will always be our #1 photographer!
Thank you soooo much! They look great! You are magic!
My senior picture endeavor has been on my mind since the beginning of high school. I never could have imagined that someone could capture me so well, and express, through a visual, the love I possess for my horses! My expectations were blown out of the water when I saw the pictures, and I am so thankful for the kind, compassionate, artistic person that you are, who was able to create such a lovely folio for me!I enjoyed being able to have you as my photographer immensely, and I had such a wonderful time during my shoot.Thank you again for creating such a magical, memorable photo shoot and creating such beautiful pictures for me!
Obsessed!!!!! We love them! Thank you again for your great work and company. What a beautiful experience caught so nicely in photos! Thank you!!!
Michele! Brandon and I are so beyond grateful that you took the time to take our photos! We are so excited to print and hang them. They will be a part of our lives and our family forever. You are a gifted and talented photographer. The photos are so beautiful! We hope to work with you again in the future. These photos mean so much to us!
Michele was really supportive along they way, helping us with an itinerary and even with ideas for the wedding itself, having shot at so many before. She went out of her way to get a permit so that we could do our first look and bridal party photos at Red Rocks. It was really special to us to be able to show that location to our friends and do something so iconically ‘Colorado.’ Michele’s engagement photo session was a nice way to spend time with her and get to know one another’s styles and personalities.
