Hi, I'm Michele!
I love, love...and fun.
I'm a mom of four kiddos and live in Danbury, CT with a backyard speckled with goats and chickens. I love home. I love my big backyard and my cozy, rowdy converted barnhouse where we cuddle up and watch Netflix at night. We have a big fluffy Newfie that we all adore and I absolutely love taking walks with her everyday.
My hubby, Valon, and I were high school sweethearts and have been together for almost twenty years. We were married in our backyard in 2008 and now he's my partner so we get to capture other awesome backyard weddings together! I want to help other couples have the same amazing experience, which is why I'm in love with what I do!
I'm certified in yoga and practice every morning. It helps me start my day feeling great and also to be more present when planning for your wedding day!
I know why you love your home and it's where you want to get married and celebrate together. It's personal, special, and it represents you like nowhere else. It is you and this day is all about you! You'll be relaxed, enjoy your day, and will even be able to have your fur babies be part of your day. The memories you create with your partner along with your friends and family at your backyard wedding wouldn't compare anywhere else. Trust me. I will absolutely be there for you to have the most beautifully captured, best day ever!
I love hiking and being outdoors every single day. I'm plant-based, believe in equality, and know that love is love, welcoming all couples. My clients become my client-friends because I care about you! I'm very laidback, upbeat, and want you to be comfortable, so we just have fun and capture the real stuff. None of the fake, posed stuff that you're worried about. I want the real you and make that super easy!
I love to chat and would love to hear about your ideas and plans! I'm here for you every step of the way so if you'd like to work together or have any questions at all, just let me know! That's what I'm here for!
Perry & Alex // Wedding
Michele did my wedding on August 8, 2020 and from the moment we contacted her she was personable, responsive and fantastic! We received our wedding pictures VERY quickly and love them. She captured moments during the day that I missed and it was wonderful to relive the day through her lens. In addition to getting all the typical wedding picture Michele captured the little moments that show us and our love. We have been sharing pictures with friends and family and they love them too.
Angelina & Sergio // Elopement
Michele has an incredible way of capturing the most organic, unique, and loving moments between humans! We had the most amazing, adventurous getaway with her and her husband, and they managed to make us feel so comfortable and true to ourselves, which is completely reflected in the most beautiful images. We are just in awe and feel so grateful to have found this gem of an artist! Xo
