Frequently Asked Questions
When did you begin shooting events and weddings?
Michelle began shooting events in 2012 and began shooting weddings in 2014.
What is "hybrid" photography?
Hybrid Photography is a technique used by photographers to essentially unite film and digital photography using digital presets, high resolution scanning techniques, film photography and digital technology.
What is a photojournalistic photographer?
Photojournalism captures individuals organically. Images are truthful to their times, un-staged and capture “candid” moments of a particular subject matter that the photographer is concentrating on. Images are captured to comment and reminisce on moments in time between individuals.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use Nikon professional grade equipment.
Do you use flash or lighting equipment?
Yes! I use flash depending on certain lighting conditions. This will be determined on-location.
Do you work with an assistant or second photographer?
Yes, Michelle hires assistants and second shooters for full-coverage. She will determine this after the consultation.
We offer heirloom hand crafted photo albums + parent albums (leather and linen options + customizations), album accessories, wedding guestbooks, fine art canvas prints, fine art wall portraits (ready to hang), and small portraits.
What photography products do you offer?
I'm a busy mom and entrepreneur. Will you help me pick out outfits for our session so our framed prints will fit beautifully in my home?
Yes! Absolutely. That is what I am here for. I am a full-service photographer and we plan everything from session details, including the venue, time of day, and we aid in the color scheme of your outfits, so the final product will fit perfectly in your beautiful home.
How will we design our final products?
At our reveal and review ordering session, I will bring sample products to your home to see what exact color and collection will display best with your images, in your home!
The reveal and review ordering session is scheduled 6 weeks after our session. At this session, we will access your images and review our heirloom product collections. From there, all products will be paid in full and we will place your product and print orders.
Average turnaround time is 10 weeks.
Rush orders are available.
What is the standard turnaround time? How will I see my images after our session and preview your heirloom product line?
Yes! Michelle will e-mail you a link that includes the gallery for you to access your images for you to share with family and friends! We highly encourage you to share your beautiful gallery with your family and friends.
Will I have access to my private gallery after the reveal and review (ordering session)?

We’re eloping! Do you have a collection for us?
My bags are packed! For more questions contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, I do! Please contact us at for a quote and more information.
Do you travel for portrait sessions?
Weddings need to be booked as soon as possible, at least 6 months in advance. I recommend inquiring about your date as earliest as possible to reserve your date.
For portrait sessions, about a month in advance works.
I love everything you have to offer and I want to book you! How long in advance of my date should I reserve your services?
At the time of your booking, a 50% security deposit is due to reserve your wedding date. Payment plans are available if you are booking early. The remaining balance is due 1 month before your date and New Jersey state sales tax applies to your order.
At the time of your booking, a session fee is due to reserve your session and rain date with Michelle.
If you’re interested in a payment plan, just let us know and we’ll send it over. Easy peasy.
