Hey there, I'm Michelle!

I’m a natural light wedding photographer based in Columbus, Ohio and available for travel anywhere in the world! I love bright, romantic images that transport you from your living room back into the magic of the wedding day. You’ll remember not only how the day looked, but how it felt. From the tiniest of details to the grandeur of the reception hall... from the happy tears as you walk down the aisle to the joy of your first dance... my mission is to capture your love story in a timeless way that you will cherish forever.

I married my husband Josh in 2013 and embarked on the biggest and most wonderful adventure of my life. These days, we both work full time in the wedding industry (Josh is an amazing wedding DJ; check out our company at joshstaleyproductions.com!) because we love our couples and are passionate about marriage. When we’re not working for our amazing couples or recording the Columbus Wedding Podcast, you can find us watching movies with our two pups (accompanied by mugs of hot beverages), spending time with friends, or adventuring to new places we’ve never been before!


"Michelle was such a pivotal part of our wedding day, and neither my husband or I could imagine having spent our day with anyone else! What was most notable is how comfortable she made both my husband and I feel. Seeing and feeling my husband’s comfort especially was most valuable to me, and that was directly related to Michelle’s instinctive ability to connect with her couples and people in general, and in-turn create a natural & raw portfolio for us to admire forever. She has a soft & calm presence as well as a “perfectionist” attitude when it comes to the artwork and professional aspect of her job, which translates perfectly into the final product and all steps leading up to it. Her kindness makes both of us smile!"

When you invest in one of my wedding photography collections, you'll not only gain a photographer, but a friend and ally for your big day. We'll plan the perfect engagement session, meet for coffee and talk all things wedding (and other things too), and I'll provide as much support as you need when it comes to planning out those final details.

Bottom line? I'm genuinely so excited for you and your fiancé, because I believe that marriage is a commitment that deserves to be celebrated without reservation. It's a BIG DEAL! You deserve nothing less than the best, so you're going to get just that.
