WELCOME “hopefully” soon to be FRIEND 🙂

Welcome to Michelle bg Photography… this website features the elopements and weddings I photograph and create. 

So what’s there to say about me?  


Besides being a photographer, I am also a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend, and a lover of all things romantic 😉  

I was born in the Bronx, NY and moved to Los Angeles with my parents when I was 2, so I think I can say I’m a California girl 😉  

I have always been a photographer at heart, but one day I got the chance to photograph a wedding… and I fell head over heels in love with the idea of telling “love stories” through pictures.  I believe in having a connection with my clients because with that I can truly capture the natural beauty that each individual has, and then share with them what I see. 

Here’s a list of things about me that may seem ordinary, but these things make me who I am 🙂

American Girl meets Irish Boy, and the rest is history. 😉

I love my three boys – 4 if you include my husband 🙂

I love travel and taking pictures of EVERYTHING

I ADORE road trips 🙂

I love trying to grow tropical plants in my living room window, (the Irish weather can be a bit rough on me at times)
