the pretty pictures

Flip-flops on the daily but still looking for any excuse to put on some Jimmy Choos.  Belly laugher and seeker of authentic relationships.  Believer in truth being told in love. Advocating for you to have some moments to stop and smell the roses (or rosé, whichever you prefer) on your wedding day. Enneagram 7 with a move towards 1 in times of healthy stress, and you've got yourself a whole lotta' organized fun.  Friend, you spend more time with me on your wedding day than you do with just about anyone else. I need to be the Coco to your Chanel.  If you like what you see so far and want to know more, click below. 

about michelle

it's more than

THE Michelle Renée


It's a bit surreal to look in a magazine or online feature and see your stunning couples gracing the pages, but what matters far beyond any external recognition is the bond I'm able to develop with the couples I serve and hear them tell me years after their wedding day, just how much their images mean to them.
