Hi there and Welcome

I'm Michelle and I am so glad you’re here! I am a wedding and portrait photographer. My specialty is weddings in the beautiful NC mountains - from Hickory to Boone, Blowing Rock, Asheville and beyond. If you are planning a destination wedding or elopement, I'd love to work with you to capture your special day! I am an award winning photographer with a relaxed and timeless style. Your smiles and glances on your wedding day are priceless. Especially with your friends and family surrounding you. The laughs, the tears of joy and the fun! Additionally, your babies as they grow into children and young adults. I will preserve your memories with attention and care. I want your photographs to tell your story for generations to come.

About Michelle

Hey, hey ... what can I tell you about me that's short and sweet? I'm a wife and a mom with a love of photography. Capturing my boys created this path for me. I have cultivated my business for 7 years. There has been joy, sweat and tears along the way. I'm a light loving lady with the technical and artistic skills to freeze emotion and time.

A graduate of Appalachian State University and most at home outdoors. My husband and my 3 boys are my world. We live in the country, outside of Lenoir, NC, with our 2 dogs and are currently renovating our home top to bottom, including two additions.

I am a life long learner. I'm determined, level-headed, an achiever, and a believer in good. I think LOVE is EVERYTHING. I'm sensitive, witty, kind, loving, creative and strong. The beach and the sun give me all the warm feelings. Spin class is where I get my head in the game.

Documenting moments and creating photos that capture real personality are my favorite. I feel lucky to do this job and take it very seriously.

Let's get started ...

I'm a proud member of High South Event Professionals and my work has been featured in their print magazine several times as well as the High Country Wedding Guide. It has been an honor to be published on Rustic Wedding Chic , Simply Elope and Seniorologie . Additionally, I've been recognized with creativity awards through Clickin Moms . My style can be described as bright, rich, bold and classic. I strive to provide an excellent, full service experience for clients. My approach is natural documentation with gentle guidance to produce organic images.

 

Are you planning the wedding or elopement of your dreams? I will be there to guide you through planning and photography timelines. We will schedule an initial phone or in-person consult after your inquiry. From there, you'll be provided materials to help with any questions. I'll be available all along the way and can help with vendor referrals for your day upon booking.

 

After you've said "I do" and celebrated with your loved ones, you will have beautiful photographs to bring all those memories flooding back. Time and time again. Expect timely delivery in an on-line gallery for viewing, sharing and downloading. You will also receive your images on USB in a keepsake box. If you have included any gorgeous, high quality albums in your package you will get a chance to review those. Additionally, you and your guests can purchase prints and products from my full service gallery if desired. As always, print rights are included in all sessions and wedding coverage and collections.

 

I would love to chat with you over the phone about your portrait session. This way all the details can be planned and prepared for. Questions on what to wear or concerned about getting your child comfortable in front of the camera? No problem, we'll talk through all of that. After your session images will be delivered in an online gallery for digital download.

Client Love

Michelle exceded our expectations in all aspects of her work. She is first place in kindness and professionalism and her photographs are absolutely fine art. She was beyond helpful when it came to planning a photographic timeline for our entire wedding day- she captured EVERYTHING and had some great suggestions that neither I nor my husband would have thought of. It was very obvious that she has weddings down to a science. She also had no trouble organizing and flying through our family portraits even though there were almost a hundred of us! Once the day began I felt like she was everywhere and nowhere all at once. She was never intrusive or pushy as I have seen photographers be at other events. She was there for every special moment and with her candids she captured the mood perfectly. When we looked at our wedding photos my husband and I both cried- to see everyone's faces in the emotional moments was like reliving the day. Michelle is a superb photographer with expert knowledge of her equipment and capabilities. She operates smoothly and with experienced autonomy. I would recommend her a thousand times over and trust her again any time!
