I’m Michelle, a 30-something Portland, Maine wedding photographer who is inspired by the quiet and authentic moments. I’m a natural observer — which is why I’m drawn to the camera. I love to document those fleeting moments that, as a whole, make up our lives. To me, there is nothing better than being able to flip through photos and relive a moment, a memory, or a feeling. Your wedding day will undoubtedly go by in the blink of an eye (mine did!), and I love being able to capture those big — and small — moments forever for you.
I got my start in food and lifestyle photography and decided to pursue wedding photography after my own ceremony. My husband and I tied the knot on an unseasonably warm day in May at the barn where my mom and stepdad were married twenty years earlier. That day will forever be one of my favorites; all of the important people in our lives under one roof celebrating with us. When I realized how much I cherished the moments captured by the camera from our day, I knew I wanted to provide the same joy for other couples.
I grew up in a small town in Connecticut, spent my college years and 20s in Boston, moved to New York City with Dean, my husband, and Quincy, our tabby cat, and now have found my way back to New England where we live in Portland, Maine. Beyond photography, I am an avid reader, love long bike rides, prefer the Monday crosswords to the Sunday ones, enjoy woodsy day hikes in the fall, and am always finding the nearest bookstore when we travel.
