I have had a passion for photography since I was a child with quite literally a camera attached to my hand through most of my teen and adult life. After high school I received my fine arts degree from Antonelli College. I met Daniel at my senior showcase and he roped me in to give his studio a chance. I never thought I'd find myself in the wedding industry, but here I am loving every bit of it! Having been a part of the studio since 2010 and having been an assistant, photojournalist, senior photographer, and now master photographer has given me an amazing perspective to all sides of a wedding day and thus making me a very well-rounded photographer.
I find that sometimes my couples forget that this is THEIR wedding day and I love reminding them to pause and remember that! My out-going and loud personality helps bring out the best you in your photos and we have a heck of a fun time doing so. The most important thing you take from your wedding is your memories and it's my job to see to it that not only are they captured, but captured in a way that is complimentary to you and your fiance, and creative and beautiful. This very much becomes a professional friendship for me and my couples! I love the personal approach our studio takes and take pride in being there for you on the biggest day of your life!
You can also find me behind the lens of our Boudoir Sessions! This is something very near and dear to my heart. I believe that every woman deserves an experience as amazing as a Boudoir Session to not only create an unforgettable gift for him, but an empowering experience for you. Check out the Boudoir page for all the details and more about why I love it so much! https://www.danielmichael.com/portraits/boudoir/
Personally, I'm a wife and mother and absolutely LOVE every bit of it, which keeps me very busy! I love wine tastings with friends and spending time with my family. I'm a country girl at heart but don't mind getting dolled up for a night out with my hubby either! Some of my favorite past times are binge watching ALL of the Harry Potter movies, having mini rock concerts in my car on a long road trip, and finding new wines to enjoy with friends!
