Hi, I'm Michelle!

(and that bearded rascal next to me is my amazing husband)

I absolutely love what I do and believe that everyone has a story to tell. I love the unique backgrounds that make each person who they are. My favourite part about stories - whether they are told in stills or with motion - are the candid moments that turn an everyday situation into an extraordinary and unforgettable one. 

That split-second changes everything.

These are also the moments where you feel most comfortable, resulting in the best images - the ones where you can truly just be yourself.

I'd love to be a part of your photographic journey.

My style is very unobtrusive, candid and documentary - my focus is on capturing the little (and big) moments that tell the story of every couple's day. I shoot mostly on Canon DSLRs, but do have a few film cameras (Minolta) from my childhood days, and a Fuji mirrorless for travel + personal images. I expanded into weddings from portraits + events when I myself got engaged a few years ago. Since then, I've been in love with love (cheesy, I know!) and have been photographing couples and their families ever since! 

A little about me aside from photography:

  • Dog-lover (really just an animal lover - I don't get starstruck, but with animals, you'd think I just met a celebrity, haha) and we finally adopted our first dog (a german shepherd mix) as a family last year after fostering for a while!

  • In spare time, I love to try new things (skydiving, martial arts, all the others) and also go back to old faves (zip-lining, hiking, dance)

  • I am a big believer in community > competition and am always thrilled to meet new friends in the industry!

  • Born and raised in Toronto, but forever passionate about exploring new places and cultures - there's a deep personal growth that naturally comes with traveling, and I love learning more about myself and others during a trip!

  • Last place I visited: Alaska

I would absolutely love to work with you. Send me an email and let's have some fun!
