They met at the ages of four and six. They grew up together. They fell in love at the same school. And the rest is pretty much history. Jake + Mary, I’m so blessed to know you and learn from you. It’s amazing to see how the Lord has orchestrated your steps over the years, […]

Meet Ashley. Beautiful mom, amazing wife, wonderful friend. When I met her a few months ago,  I immediately wanted to know her deeper. She’s opened up her home to me when my heat wouldn’t turn on (50 degrees in a house at night? Yeah, no thanks), encouraged me in my business, and allowed me to […]

I guess there’s not much to say for this one. I mean just look at them! Greg + Abby are the sweetest, most genuine people you will EVER meet, and their love for each other definitely reflects that. Covered in the softest of snowflakes on a secluded Christmas tree farm in the mountains of Virginia, […]

I have three younger siblings. Two, six, and eight years younger than me, respectively. I remember when they were babies, having to tiptoe around the house because my little brother was napping, or maybe my little sister was trying to fall asleep. My dad tells me that when I visited Mackenzie in the hospital for […]

It’s always a treat to document other creatives, to catch that glimmer in their eye that reflects their passion to make beautiful and meaningful things. Mary has that glimmer, and she’s really as radiant as they come (I mean LOOK at that smoulder….WHAT?!). I’m excited to watch not only her business grow, but also her […]

If you know me at all, I’ve probably shown you a video of Liam telling one of his infamous jokes or a photo of Jack’s adorable Gerber baby face. And if you didn’t think I was crazy after how much I raved about their cuteness, you surely did after I got done explaining how beautiful […]

It’s so funny how life works. One moment, you’re completely strangers with people, the next you’ve fallen head over heels for their little family. Last year, Jayne found me through Google (say what?!), hunting for a South Florida photographer to document her family on vacation, and the rest is history. It’s been a true joy to […]

When Hayley asked me to shoot her Islamorada wedding, I instantly accepted. I’ve known Luke since grade school and Hayley since high school. What a treasured moment it was to see two high school sweethearts commit their lives to one another. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Albert!!  xoxo, Michela

When you find a greenhouse bursting with all kinds of flowers, you go. And you go with a camera and pretty friend in tow. It’s little joys like roses and Mackenzie and greenhouses in spring that make this life ever so beautiful. Mackenzie, you are so beautiful inside and out. What a sweet, sweet privilege […]

Sweet, sweet Grace. She’s just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Her fashion sense is impeccable and her spirit is so joyful. If you don’t have a Grace in your life, get one. I promise you won’t regret it. xoxo, Michela
