't want a cookie cutter wedding so we didn't want cookie cutter photos either. Michelle likes to capture those special candid moments, and she also looks for the theme of the couple's life-- and not just for the wedding. She wants to show the couple's love. She loved our story, and she and her assistant found a way to highlight that both at the ceremony and at the reception. Added bonuses: she was really easy to communicate with, and her fee was very reasonable.

easiest to work with. They’re not egotistical, they’re not rude, they get the job done in a concise and timely manner. And they’re open to ideas as well, Michelle, the lead photographer listened to everything we wanted to try out and not once did she talk to us about time, in fact she seemed to share our passions and ideas, it’s like we were being photographed by a close friend.
Weddings aren’t easy, I think we can all admit to that, but even the smallest bit of weight lifted off of your shoulders is a gift. Working with SheBreathes felt like a boulder was lifted off of ours. I can’t thank them enough, the day was magical already but working with them was icing on the cake.
SheBreathes gets my highest recommendation.

I see that a couple of reviews here say she has been slow in communication. I wanted to add that I never had a problem with her getting back to me. I was always patient and realized that she has a very busy schedule but she never went with out reaching out to me when I needed her.

t us anything. I had to reach out about them, but then heard no response, until I began requesting our wedding photos. She mentioned she had equipment problems, but one of our engagement pictures is on her website, so there must be at least that picture. I have no idea if I'll ever see any of those pictures, and at least point it seems unlikely. It takes multiple emails to get a response from her. I still have not received my flash drive with my photos, despite being told they were sent 2 months ago. I haven't even thought about asking for my photo album bc I'd really just like to get my pictures. I finally was able to get access to the online versions, which were great, but the lack of communication on Michelle's part has been horrible to deal with. The worst part is that I really enjoyed working with Michelle, and I really like our pictures, but I'm very over trying to chase her down.

Her wedding packages are not only reasonable but you end up with top quality work without breaking the bank.
I am very surprised the most recent review was stating what a difficult time they had with Michelle. We had no trouble getting in touch with her or getting a response when needed. We did have some scheduling conflicts but that was mostly our fault as my fiance works strange hours. However, Michelle was always willing to go the extra mile to keep our appointments and stay patient, which we were very thankful for.
You will not regret booking with Michelle and she is who we will be using for all of our future photography needs.
