Home About Michelle
Most people describe me as inexplicably smiley all the time. When I hear that, I always laugh and hope that is a good thing. ^^
I’m a graduate from UCSD, holding a Bachelor's in Biochemistry and Cell biology. It's been a crazy journey to get from pre-pharm to photographer, (more detailed story here) Photography has always been something I loved; I have billions and billions and billions of pictures. I started out with a dinky Canon elph SD 100. Yes, that’s right - SD 100, the original elph. I was always the one going around snapping photos and making sure that memory would be forever imprinted in pictures.
Now with almost a decade of photography experience, I’ve been able to accrue some pretty awesome titles and publications including: Internationally Acclaimed Multi Award Winning Photographer, Published in : California Wedding Day Magazine: Spring 2013, Fall 2015, Smitten Magazine Spring 2014, Disney Wedding Blog, 100 Layer Cake, Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, Southern California Bride, Real Weddings, Apple, and Kate Spade.
What I love to capture the most, is the personalities of couples! Whether they are insanely silly, nerdy, ultra sweet, super serious, nature loving, a bit shy, have a funky style, a bit competitive, or whatever the case may be, I hope to freeze those unique moments into a picture. Instead of having the couple fit into a set style and pose, I brainstorm and develop a unique style and theme that fits around the couple for every single shoot. My greatest hope is that my photographs can really highlight that special something every couple has. ^^
More than pictures, I love people. I love meeting people, getting to know them, hearing their stories, spending quality time just bonding and laughing with each other. I also love disney, desserts, nintendo, Totoro, my husband and my pup Mochi. Any of these subjects over coffee date is a recipe for instant friend! Can't wait to meet you!
