purdyI love has been a privilege for me to have photographed hundreds of happy couples starting their lives together. After 26 years of spending time and energy with couples, my passion to capture great memories has not wavered. At age 16, I picked up my first camera and by age 19 I owned and operated my first studio. 26 years later, I'm still enjoying every minute of this wonderful life.

I approach each wedding with a profound sense of the importance of this special day and make sure that my clients walk away knowing that not only did they hire an experienced professional, but a new friend. I continue to be amazed by the art of love. Having witnessed hundreds of weddings in my career, the joy of witnessing the start of two people's lives together still gets to me. Each expression, the joy, the laughter, the tears, the shear act of love is a true miracle of life. Through my camera lens, I've seen so many happy faces, and I've been honored with each click to have captured the moments of so many peoples lives.

My job and my joy is to be there with you on the start of your lives together. It is with much commitment and determination, that we pledge to you as your photographers to make sure your day is one to remember both from a photographic aspect, but also from a personal one. We want to make sure your day is full of laughter and beautiful memories. As your prayers that day end, we pledge to leave you with memories that will last your lifetime.

I love working with couples who are about to get married. Eureka Springs is a wedding paradise, and since weddings in this area span every type of budget, I wanted to be able to offer professional photography and videography to those couples who might not otherwise be able to afford it! I love my work, and whether I'm shooting a five minute ceremony or editing an eight hour extravaganza, I approach each wedding as if it were my own. Thank you for letting me be part of your wedding day!

In business since 2007, I have traveled the country photographing weddings, but Eureka Springs and the surrounding area are home and my favorite local for shooting. I’m a storyteller at heart and love helping clients create their love story through photographs. I love photographing the little details of the day that you might forget such as the wedding bouquet, the rings, the way you held hands when he first walked you to the alter, or the tear that your father wiped away when you said “I do.” I want you to be able to look at your photos years from now and remember exactly what you felt that day.

You will experience hard work, professionalism, and friendliness on the day of your wedding. I believe in organization to make your day run as smoothly as possible, but am able to think on my feet and change directions quickly if something doesn’t go as planned.

Let me help you write your wedding love story with style and grace.

~ Michele
