We are so excited with how God has blessed our business and as we expand and strive to serve more brides we have decided to introduce our Associate Photographers. Michele is a fabulous photographer and a super fun girl! Be sure to stay tuned on our Facebook page and here on blog as you will see more of her work in the future.
Here’s a fun little interview with Michele:
Where are you from?
Born and raised in good old Fort Worth, TX!
How did you start in photography?
I was interested in photography all through high school. The year after I graduated I was able to finally invest in some quality equipment, and start pursuing portrait photography as an amateur. One thing led to another and, within a year of getting into photography, I was keeping myself quite busy – and started shooting weddings, too! That was over three years ago, and the rest is history!
What is your favorite blog?
Two words – Pioneer. Woman. She cooks, she writes, she’s funny, and she takes pretty pictures. Basically, I want to be her when I grow up.
Southern Weddings blog is a close second. Love me some good old fashioned southern style!
Do you have any pets?
Yes! My roommate and I just adopted a little kitten from the humane society. His name is Joey (“Friends” reference) and he is the cutest, softest, cuddliest little kitty ever.
What is your favorite store?
Target! It’s a good catch-all, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scoured their clearance clothing racks and scored the best deals. Plus, most of them have Starbucks inside. win-win-win!
What are you thankful for?
An incredibly loving (and crazy ;) ) family, friends who encourage me on a daily basis, a God who loves me despite all my shortcomings, seeing new places, running, coffee, scarves, and dark chocolate – to name a few!
What is your favorite food?
As silly as it sounds, I loooove smoothies. When I started intentionally eating more nutritionally a few years ago, smoothies were my favorite way to eat healthy but feel like I was treating myself. Plus, they’re the best way to start or end any hot summer day in Texas!
What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
Without a doubt – the first time the bride and groom see each other. I know that may be cliche, but it really is one of the most special things to witness on a wedding day. Whether it’s when the bride is walking down the aisle or the couple is doing a “first look,” I love that moment when the two of them look at each other and you can just feel them thinking, “WE’RE ABOUT TO BE MARRIED.” It’s the best. I am not typically an emotional person, but every time without fail in that moment, I become the world’s biggest softy.
What would your ideal day be like?
I’m not exactly a morning person, so it would definitely include a chill morning – slowly waking up, sipping coffee and reading in my PJs for a bit. I think it might also include going on a random adventure with friends, just driving and exploring, and taking pictures along the way of course! Really though – if it includes spending quality time with anyone in my life that I love, I would consider it a good day.
