I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy found in the simplest of moments. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed behind beautiful frames, and hung on walls for years to come. I believe in enjoying the wedding album on each anniversary and building a tradition in the home surrounding this day.
I began capturing images on film at the age of 15 when I discovered my parents Canon AE-1. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to observe the joy in the world, and the people around me.
Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create timeless images that share a story and showcase the relationships of both the people in the images and the joy that they share together.
I was born and raised in New Jersey. After studying in Boston, meeting the love of my life and USMC Veteran, Adam at a grocery store, we made the move back to New Jersey. Since then, I’ve traveled around the world documenting love stories for couples and families.
My love for photography has brought me from the catwalks of New York Fashion Week to the private estates of Boston’s North Shore. But regardless of where I travel, the vast landscapes of northern New Jersey is home.
Hope, New Jersey

“My fiancé and I have never had our pictures taken and were nervous, but from the moment she greeted us we felt so comfortable. The shoot was so laid back and fun. Michelle took the time to talk to us and make us feel so relaxed and our pictures are proof of that. I can’t say enough good things about Michelle.”
Nothing warms you up faster on a brisk afternoon than a warm cup of tea and organic honey. Throw in a few friends, macaroons, and Sex and the City you have the ingredients for a perfect day.
We believe that life's biggest and smallest moments are worth celebrating. You'll always find a bottle of champagne in our fridge in the event that the night deserves a bit of celebrating!
New isn't always better. We're big fans of spending the afternoon sifting through antique shops and secondhand stores for timeless pieces with secret stories. Our favorite find? Vintage ring boxes!
To create great art, you must first experience and study the work of the masters. We find great inspiration from the master artists, architects, and adore viewing their work at some of New York's finest galleries.
We are drawn to photograph at old-world estates and mansions that incorporate history in their walls, unique textures, and grandiose that make for an exquisite backdrop for the classic, sophisticated bridal portrait.
Some of her favorite places include the islands of the Bahamas, St. John, and Walt Disney World. Traveling to our family means visiting where the locals go. Her travel bucket list includes Paris, Vatican City, Alaska, and many more.
