Hi, I'm Michelle! I'm so excited to work with you.

Michelle Chiu Imagery Photography Wedding

I love the unique stories that make each couple who they are, and one of my favourite things are the candid moments that turn an everyday situation into a crazy hilarious or unforgettable one. That split-second changes everything!

If you're on this page, I'm so glad you've connected with my work! Sessions with me are fun, relaxed and easy-going - the best pictures are the ones where you can just be yourself. Rest assured, I can make beautiful images for you, rain or shine, church or field, no matter the situation or circumstance.

My goal is to create documentary images that are beautiful, timeless and bring out the emotions of your day. Images that you keep in your family and share for the rest of your lives.

Shoot me a message and ask about custom packages too!

FAQs

How many images can we expect to get in our online gallery? My average gallery includes about 40-70 images per hour - I always make sure to include a variety to encompass the feelings behind the whole day. These images all come ready-to-print!

Are we able to see any photos before the online gallery is sent? Yep, you betcha. You'll get a quick sneak peek within 7 days of the date!

Do you have back-up equipment? Insurance? Yes, definitely! I wouldn't do a job without either! 

Do you make prints & albums? Yes, I do! 

Can I get my photos on a USB/CD? Absolutely, you can! USBs and CD add-ons are $10 each. Galleries are also downloadable!

What are your travel costs if we're not getting married in Toronto? Traveling is one of my favourite things! For driving, I typically charge $20 per hour of driving if your wedding is more than 30 minutes outside of Toronto. Out of the area? Let's talk! I often do shoots and other work internationally so I can tell you I'm always up for a long (or short) flight. 

How do we book our date with you? A 50% deposit and signed contract confirms your date with me, and all of this can be done online. Email me when you're ready for both!

engagement sessions

This is more than just nice photos - an engagement shoot showcases your every day moments together. That's pretty special. 2 hours of couples portraits and adventuring around together, wherever you want to go. After you book, I'll help you with things like what to expect and what to wear during your engagement session.

Should a session not already be included or you'd like it a-la-carte, engagements start at $250 for 2 hours.

add on: rehearsal dinner coverage

Some of the best memories of your wedding weekend happen the night before your wedding at your rehearsal dinner - all of your family and bridal party in one place, with the toasts, the champagne, the food. Whether you want the rehearsal itself covered, or the dinner, or both,we can make this happen.

Rehearsal dinner coverage starts at $375 for two hours as an add-on to your package.

elopements

Planning to elope? Elopements allow you to do exactly what you want on your wedding day, a perfect fit for a lot of couples who want to opt out of the traditional wedding experience. There's something magical about saying your vows with just an officiant and your absolute closest people - stress-free.

I'll fly across the world or meet you somewhere in between, but nowhere is too close or too far! Shoot me a message and let's get started!

add on: Wedding portraits

We fit so much into your wedding day that some opt for a private portrait session a few weeks before the wedding to focus on just you in your outfit and details. (This can also be the perfect time to a do trial run for any hair and make-up)! Portraits are a full hour in your dress/suit, in the woods or at your wedding venue or wherever you want them to be!

Wedding portraits start at $275 as an add-on to your wedding package.

second photographers

A lot of couples wonder if a second photographer should be added onto the package - and my answer is that it always depends on your type of wedding.

I'm more than comfortable being the only photographer, but if you're planning on a large guest list or multiple locations I recommend bringing on another set of eyes.

Adding a second photographer starts at $300 for 6 hours.

add on: extra hours

Add on as many extra hours of photography for your wedding day as you need - typically most couples range from 6 to 12 hours for day of wedding coverage. Eight hours will typically span from the getting ready to the first half hour of the dance, and 10-12 hours gives us some room to breathe so nothing is too rushed. In our consultation we can talk through all of this to decide which option is best for you. 

Extra hours begin at $325/hour and can be added on to any package at any time. 

Drop me an email or call me - I'm here for you in every step of the wedding planning process. Can't wait to meet you.
