What Makes You Worth What You Charge?
Thanks for asking! You will never find a photographer like Michelle. Michelle combines her education in psychology, the wisdom from her oldest sons passing and her extensive study of camera gear to bring you the most unforgettable portrait experience you have ever had. Michelle shoots specifically with her mission in mind, 'if I could go back one more day, what would I want to remember?' The answer to that is Michelle captures more than the perfect portrait. She captures your everything. She uses a carefully honed process to convey the spirit behind the smiles and create authentic connection inside the captures. Because of the unique techniques Michelle uses while shooting, when you look at your final artwork you won't just see a beautiful portrait. You will FEEL the love you hold for those you hold dear.
Where are you based and do you travel?
Michelle is based in the Greater Salt Lake Valley as a Utah photographer. Michelle does travel and keeps her website updated with her whereabouts and availability. She oftentimes combines her work with play so if she's visiting your city, she will be sure to post it to her blog. Otherwise Michelle does travel upon request with a pre-purchase of a collection.
When will we get our photos?
Our state of the art canvases take approximately 4 weeks to customize, deliver and install. The design consultation will take place 1 week after your session so you should have your portraits installed in your home 4-6 weeks after your portrait session.
How many pictures will we receive?
Your reveal will include 60-100 images to choose from. Any image you love enough to print in an album or hang on your wall you receive the social media digital file. It's the best of both worlds! You get physical prints and digitals to share on social media.
Why Don't You Sell Just Digitals?
After seeing one too many clients have their memories die on a broken hard drive or get lost in the sea of iCloud photos, I realized most people have good intentions to do something with their portraits but typically never do. I believe what we create together is something special and deserves to be remembered in twenty years from now. I also believe your memories deserve to be preserved with the best quality keepsakes. I work with professional printing labs that only work with professional photographers. Our products are not available to consumers as we offer best on market products.
