Introduction: Hi there! I am a portrait photographer based in the Los Angeles Metro Area, but I travel all over the state for photography sessions! I focus on engagement photos, wedding photos, family lifestyle portraits, and lifestyle branding photos for creatives & businesses. Most photographers limit the amount of photos they return to a small number, but I always turn over all of the successful images we make together, which can be a lot :) I am super passionate about nature & natural light and constantly try to incorporate both of those elements into my photography sessions. If you want dreamy, aesthetically beautiful photos for you or your family, reach out to me and let's get you scheduled for a session!

Michelle was the best wedding photographer I could have ever imagined! I wanted to do a surprise proposal for my girlfriend on the beach, and she was able to be at the right place at the right time to capture the moment. She was very responsive for all my questions and comments leading up to the proposal, and was so helpful! The pictures she captured were amazing - we will cherish the pictures she was able to take for the rest of our lives. I’d recommend her to anyone!

Thank you so much for such a kind review!! I had so much fun coordinating this proposal with you for your fiancé and so happy for you both starting out on your adventure together :) I know you said that Natalie cried when she was looking through the photos, and that really made me feel like I did my job right :)

Thank you so much for a sweet review!! I really appreciate you taking the time to write a few kind words :) I had so much fun up in the mountains with you and your fiancé. The moment where you both had a slow dance amongst the trees in the mountains was my favorite!!! :)

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have general pricing points, but sometimes I offer discounts!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When I work with someone new, I like to ask what their needs and expectations are so that I can understand what they are looking for and what does not interest them (style, location, poses, etc.) I like to explain the process for each type of photo shoot and decided on a location together that will suit my client's needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self taught photographer since I was a teenager.
