There's no returns or exchanges on your wedding day. No take 2, no do-over's, no "let's try that again." Invest in what you love and who you vibe with/ trust to preserve your greatest memories. If that's me- I'm honored and happy you're here.

Let's capture your crazy stupid love. Because who can't resist a great story with pictures.

Thanks for having me.

Upon receiving your inquiry, I'll send my pricing guide your way. It will cover my packages, as well as additional services/ add-ons I offer. Want to move forward but have some questions? Perfect- prompt next step.

02. pricing guide

So you've stalked my insta and website a bit and vibe with my work (thanks!). Let's get the ball rolling- fill out my contact form, which you can find here. The more details the better. I wanna know who you are, how you got here, what brought you two together and then some. Fill me in.

01. inquire

You like me and I like you- sweet! I'll send you a contract and upon receiving the signed agreement and $1000 retainer, we can call it official! I'm yours and you're mine- let's do this thing.

04. Contract

It's mandatory. Cannot express how important it for us to like each other in order for this thing to work out. Virtually meeting before any agreements are made is necessary in my process. I want to see your faces, hear your voices, feel your connection and tell if we vibe with one another. Consider it a happy hour- wine and sweatpants welcome.

03. Zoom Call

The 3 components I swear by for a stress-free wedding day! 6 weeks out is when we start working on these. We'll be in close contact more than ever (along with your wedding coordinator if you have one) and we'll count the final days together.

06. questionnaire, shot list & timeline

If included in your package, this is an amazing way for us to be able to meet IN PERSON and get to better know one another prior to the big day. You'll get a taste of being in front of my camera, have a feel for how I operate, and we'll have a damn good time. Engagement sessions are my fav! 

05. Engagement session

I believe shooting a wedding is only the tip of the iceberg. The majority of my job is editing- but this is where the magic happens you guys! Each one of your photos will be adjusted for light, color and crop and you can expect your final gallery in 4-6 weeks. From there, download all your images so you can keep them forever, share your gallery with who you choose, and print with me (or any outside source)! Thanks for taking me on this ride with you.

08. post production

Relax and enjoy it. The prep has paid off and I'm here to help make your day run as smoothly as possible. Celebrate- we made it!

"Michelle is a gem! If you’re looking for a photographer with a laid back style and you like to laugh, she’s your person. Michelle has this natural ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and her work is amazing. My husband and I LOVE our photos and will cherish them forever."

"Michelle was not only kind, personable and professional, but her work is absolutely incredible. She caught EVERYTHING we wanted on our special day and her editing makes the photos just stunning. We'll have these photos for years to come and I'm so glad Michelle was the one to capture them."

I enrolled in my first photography classes at Santa Monica College in 2016. I started shooting weddings in 2018 and went full-time in 2021!

How long have you been a wedding photographer? 

Ventura, CA! I love to travel- please, take me with you.

Where are you based out of? Do you travel?

If within driving distance-$1/mile, one way. Out of state/ international weddings, I require coverage on airfare, hotel and rental car.

What is your travel rate?

Your photos will be delivered on an online password-secured gallery with full printing rights. Download all your images (I recommend onto an external hard-drive, not your desktop), this way they are safe and you can keep them forever! I recommend printing them too. Make an album, put them on your walls, on your fridge- spread the love.

How will we receive our photos?

Every photo that is good to my standards and not a repeat of the one before, you will receive in your gallery- I hold nothing back! Every photo delivered is EDITED with adjustments made to light, color, and crop. Although I will clear the pimple that decides to show up on your wedding/engagement day, I do not photoshop my couples.

What's your editing process? Will you photoshop us?

Around 75 images per hour.

How many images do you deliver?

4-6 weeks

What is your turn-around time?

Canon 5D Mark IV's

What cameras do you shoot on?


Can we have the RAW, un-edited images?

Absolutely- you have full printing rights. I do offer prints and heirloom albums if interested, but feel free to print with whoever or wherever you like!

Can I print my own photos?

I require a signed contract and $1000 retainer fee for weddings (50% retainer for couple/engagement sessions). From there, congrats! You're booked :)

How can we book you?!
