A believer with the spirit of serving. I have grown up with entrepreneurs all around me in my family. I knew that working for myself was something I not only wanted to do but I had to do. I have put so much of myself into my work and my education that it amazes me to see where It is today! What sets me apart in owning my own business is that I absolutely love to help others. I am constantly lending a helpful hand to all my clients and going out of my way to make sure they are taken care of. I truly become invested in each of their worlds and am so happy to be apart of their lives. I am here for all my clients to lean on me for my experience and guidence through this process.
Today, I am a full-time engagement and wedding photographer with over 9 years of experience. I have my degree in photography and I am certified through the International Academy of Wedding Photographers. Additionally, I regularly participate in styled shoots and take photography/editing courses as I believe in consistently investing in my business and skill set so I can best serve the couples I work with. I am based in Arizona and I am also open to travel.
I absolutely love what I do, and I can confidently say, “I love, love!” My passion for my work comes to life through visually capturing the beautiful moments of an in-love couple’s biggest milestones and providing them with timeless family keepsakes for generations to come. The biggest compliment that I receive from my clients is my ability to take charge in helping create an amazing and effortless experience on their special day (and that they loved their photos, of course)!
A few fun facts: I am a mom/wife, huge Disney fan, I love my golden retrievers, and orcas are my favorite animal!
My philosophy is simple. I take beautiful photos to remember your special day. The moments and looks that you'll want to cherish forever. The ones that you'll frame in your home for years to come. -Michelle
