Where party meets professionalism

about brooke michelle

I’ve had a passion for photography ever since I can remember. I bought my first camera while on a trip to Sams Club with my parents so I could show them I meant business. And business, I meant. Only 4 years after purchasing that little Kodak (vintage I know) I started my Brooke Michelle Photography while killing time the summer before my senior year of high school.

My business started by documenting fellow classmates' senior lifestyle photos. And while I thought senior portraits were just a stepping stone to a future booming fashion photography career, I quickly learned my true passion was weddings. Or just making people feel celebrated in general. It’s funny how this job allows me to come back to the days when I first began my business by using my “cheerleader” voice to wrangle family formals or dancing to Low by Flo Rider every single weekend.

I take pride in knowing I provide my clients with a one-of-a-kind experience and photos that feel as warm as their love story.
