Immersive Photography That Lets You Just Be In The Moment

With expert problem-solving, planning advice and a sincere emotional investment at every turn, rely on an experience that allows you to soak it up.
Telling The Full Story, Authentically
When you put the in-moment emotions first, your memories will mean that much more to you. So together, we’ll prioritize your experience, which will inevitably produce photographs with a level of unexpected authenticity you’ll connect with years later.
No shot list required, carefree moments encouraged.
An Experience Tailored To Your Own Traditions
Every step of the way, from local recommendations to personalized timelines.
The relationships that brought you here, documenting the full picture of your story with your people.
To create your own traditions and let go of those that don’t serve your story.
An Inviting Experience
Your wedding will be captured with documentary imagery and an eye for the beauty of real stories. With a relationship-focused process, I’ll be in tune with the energy of your event, aware of the intimate dynamics and the story you want to tell.
For intimate weddings with up to 50 of your closest loved ones, we’ll work closely from the beginning. Including a customized timeline, trusted vendor recommendations and a detailed wedding guide to support you along the way. The result is immersive, moment-inspired takes that capture the heart of your experience.

“I can’t say enough great things about Michelle!”
Kayla + Jeb
She did our engagement pictures and our wedding and they all came out so beautiful. She made both of us feel really comfortable, while still forcing us to get out of our comfort zones to get great shots… I will cherish the investment we made with her for my whole life.”
“The photos we got were straight out of a fairy tale or magazine.”
Michelle turned our dreams into reality… She was fun, easy to work with, and made us feel so comfortable. I was nervous and anxious and she made me feel at ease. It ended up being such a sweet and memorable experience. Michelle has a gift and I am so glad that destiny brought us together… She captured our love and relationship perfectly and we are eternally grateful.

“She is amazing to work with.”
Her communication was incredible from the time we inquired to receiving our final photos. She is amazing to work with - extremely easy going and fun! She made my partner and I feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera with candid poses that truly captured our love naturally on camera.

What Comes Next
It’s such an honor to document stories like yours! Feel free to connect with me through this contact form. And within 24 business hours, you’ll find a reply from me full of good-to-know information to help you plan.
Let’s schedule a call, or maybe even meet up for a drink! I love to use this first introduction to better understand your story and the relationships that mean most to you and the vision you have.
In the months leading up to your wedding, we’ll keep in touch with an open line of communication. I’ll be here to guide you from the start with location and activity ideas, with access to my growing knowledge of everything Alaska. I’ll invest endless energy and emotion into your story, gradually becoming a part of your circle so that every capture is true to you.
Once you’ve shared what you value most about this celebration — and after I’ve met the cat— you can expect a proposal in your inbox, made just for your wedding. Your wedding photography package and date will be reserved with a 30% retainer fee and your signatures. And don’t let this moment pass by, your date will be penciled into my calendar for only 48 hours after the proposal is sent.
Asked & Answered
Great question. Yes! Wherever your memories take place, I can be there to document them. Some of my upcoming destinations include places like Cancun and Nashville, and the rest of my travel schedule can be found over here. Get in touch so we can talk more about your destination wedding vision.
Documentary with a film-inspired look that centers around the memories. You’ll notice a warmth that peeks through my imagery, channeling the organic tone of film photography. All with true colors and story-driven takes.
You’ll never be limited to a shotlist with me. Instead, I focus on movement and candid imagery to let your emotions shine through. I provide posing guidance for the essential portraits, but will otherwise let you soak in the moment (which makes it easier to love the warm imagery that follows).
Once we have talked through the details on a phone call (book that here!) — or maybe over a coffee — you’ll receive a personalized proposal via email based on the inspiration you shared. Then, your wedding photography package and date will be officially booked with a 30% service retainer and a few signatures.
