Emotive Storytelling & Authentic Connection


Hi, I’m Michaela

I’m an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since as long as I can remember, my passion for photography has been deeply rooted in me. Capturing images with my iphone during my childhood, I preserved treasured moments shared with friends, family, and during our journeys.

Like with anything I do, I’ve put much heart, work and energy into photography. Behind every photo there is a feeling and a memory and I want to be there to intentionally capture it. The most fulfilling part of my work is the genuine emotions and positive messages I receive from my clients.



"We worked with Michaela twice now - for our maternity and newborn shoots. We absolutely love how she captured our family and would unequivocally recommend her to anyone. She is prompt, professional and extremely personable, which is a huge plus when dealing with kids at a shoot. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future for family photography opportunities."

"Literally cannot stop looking at the pictures. You are SO AMAZING. I’ve had so many people reach out and say that you did such a good job. 100000% made the right decision having you document our love story."

"Michaela does an incredible job at making you feel at ease while taking photos! It's so inspiring to see how she has grown and continues to grow as a photographer with each shoot. The best part is - you can tell she loves what she does. Her passion and enthusiastic nature sparks genuine smiles and just an overall great time."

"Michaela captured our special day so perfectly. She was very easy to work with, flexible, and quick to respond to any questions I had! I absolutely LOVE our photos. Thank you so so much! "
