South Florida Based Wedding and Elopement Photographer, lover of Thai food, Starbucks, and my cute doggie, Lightfoot! You can find me on the sandy beaches of Florida watching the golden sunset go down, or spending quality time with my hottie boyfriend, Nick, watching re-runs of Fixer Upper and New Girl (because who doesn't love Joanna Gaines and Jessica Day! haha) 

I'm a huge dreamer, big adventure-seeker, and huge believer of living your best life! 

I truly want to get to know you! I want to be your friend! I literally want to embark on this crazy, love-filled journey that you're about to experience with your soon-to-be-hubby!

im the photographer For the hopeless in love, adventurous hearts, and wild dreamers.

I'm a firm believer of being IN-THE-MOMENT... the ones that make your heart sink, and stories that will last 20, 30, 40 years to come. 

From the happy, laughing so hard, "I'm about to pee in my pants moments", to the emotional, teary, "I can't believe I'm marrying the man of my dreams" moments!

I focus on the small details and the big feelings!

If you're here, it's because you feel a connection with my work, you are drawn to my emotional and captivating style, you envision yourself in my photographs and that makes me so INCREDIBLY HAPPY! 

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!

ANNA Maria island | INTIMATE destination WEDDING

"Where do I even start?! First of all, Michelle is an amazing photographer and person. She is so sweet and so easy to work with. As I was looking through all of my wedding photos I kept asking myself, “how did she get these pictures?! I didn’t even see her!” I have been to a few weddings where the photographer can be very distracting and blocks views from people but honestly I didn’t even realize she was there most of the time! I thought our couple photos were going to be awkward and uncomfortable but I was so wrong! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and our photos are incredible. She even showed us how to do the Wobble during our reception!! Michelle is an extremely talented photographer with an incredible eye for detail, amazing lighting, and love. I can’t wait to do a session with her again in the future."

"As soon as I met Michelle I felt so comfortable and confident! She is genuinely so sweet and not to mention her creative eye and talent! I was blown away by the before and afters. If you’re looking for a great portrait, couples, families, basically any photographer I would 10000% recommend her! Every time I’m in the Fort Myers/ Naples area she will be my go to. My photos came out amazing and I couldn’t love them more."

LOVERS KEY STATE PARK | LOVE STORY

I don't have enough beautiful words to describe Michelle and her killer skills of photography. From the moment we arrived at our location, she greeted us with a hug and made us feel as if we have been friends for years. She made us feel comfortable and continuously made us laugh. She is able to capture that perfect look of joy, love, and contentment in her photos that tell a beautiful love story. She is so friendly, outgoing, attentive to detail, professional and an incredible photographer! She is a dream to work with, and I can't wait to work with her in the near future.

in home session | Love story

Let me start off by saying I had stalked Michelle's Instagram for a while before I got to finally shoot with her. I fell INLOVE the moment I saw how natural all her photos looked and of course her warm tones. On top of being amazing at what she does, she also has the most outgoing personality that makes her so fun and easy to work with! I can go on and on about the things I love about Michelle, but bottom line is ...she's  the BEST. Thanks again Michelle for the most beautiful photos ever. Honestly, I'm completely obsessed. It was an absolute dream come true to shoot with her and I'm really looking forward to shooting with her again in the future!

Naples Beach | Love story

"We wanted to have our first family photos taken with our dog on the beach- and Michelle surpassed our expectations in every single way! Even though we had never met her before shooting, she made it easy to trust her. She knows what she’s doing and it shows in her photography! She was always professional and extremely nice. There is not a single photo that we received that my husband and I are not in love with! We can’t wait to use her for all of our professional photos to come."

"Michelle was so sweet and instantly made me feel at ease during our session! She's creative and had really good ideas for posing and location, that's just during the shoot! She was very quick to send sneak peeks and to finish the photos! And they turned out beautifully!!!! Such great colors and warmth like there is sunshine in every photo!!! I will definitely work with her again in the future!!!"

Naples Beach | Love Story

"I had a couples shoot done on Naples beach with Michelle, and needles to say, they turned out amazing! As a photographer myself, being in front of the camera is something I'm not used to. Michelle made it fun and comfortable! Her posing techniques were great and we absolutely love the pictures!!"
