While photojournalism tells meaningful stories in the most natural and honest way possible, fine art photography  intentionally (and often meticulously) captures what is aesthetically pleasing.

My style and approach is a blend of both, so your photographs will be too.

A lifetime of memories filled with beauty and truth.

A Documentary Approach 

a heightened experience




I commit to no more than 12 weddings a year, so I’m readily available to answer any question that may arise.



In addition to your planner's timeline, I create my own to ensure your time and most important photos are prioritized.




I scout locations in advance to ensure your portraits are taken in the most stunning spots offered.


Just before the wedding day, I review the notes from our conversations to ensure we don’t miss a thing.



“Having Michelle as our photographer on the day was an absolute dream. I did not anticipate how much of a difference the photographer’s approach makes. But, of course, it does.”

“They beautifully captured the experience–both of the interactions of the people but also the unique aspects of the locations.”


Love Notes

professional editing

Recall precisely how you felt when looking at your images 30 years from now. Instead of applying the same filter to each image, I edit every single one to interpret the mood and honor the feeling of that particular moment.

“I never like photos of myself, but Michelle’s photos were so beautiful I felt like I was looking at someone else. They were picture-perfect. Not only that, but she captured all the small details that I worked so hard on but didn’t get to enjoy the day-of. She created a lifetime of memories in one day.”

Picture-Perfect Memories

- Sara, Bride

Throughout history, the great love stories have been bound into books. 

Your story should be no different. 

Books add a significance and permanence to your memories. And while memories are like a dream, books remind you that they were real.

Books are the keepers of Stories

Heirloom Albums

On a day as significant as your wedding, your photographer is someone you should feel compatible with, no matter the location.

While I’m based in Honolulu, I frequently travel for both weddings and commercial work. 

So please, if you're interested in working together, I encourage you to reach out.
