Wandering with heart,
grounded by dusty feet
I’m super grateful to have 12+ years of experience as a full-time wedding and elopement photographer. Based out of a little town just outside of Edmonton, not far from some of the classic picturesque mountains of Alberta, Canada, I love creating epic experiences - whether that’s bringing my couples’ dreams to life or sweet collaborations with other creatives. Through all my gorgeous clients, styled shoots and travels, I’ve built my business one photographic adventure at a time.
More than anything, I’d love to empower your confidence and help you create a photography biz that you (and your mom) are proud of. Leveraging from my ‘insider’ industry expertise, we can organize a mentoring session and/or styled shoots to boost your portfolio and level up your business know-how.
“The result that I received from this mentorship is freakin AMAZING content that has taken my website to the next level."
I reached out to Michelle because I am just starting out in my business and was looking to build content. I knew she could put together an amazing styled Elopement because she is literally an expert in her field and has so much experience with styling from running the Wildy Workshop.
After working with Michelle I feel WAY more confident in putting together my own styled shoot. I feel more confident to express my creativity. And I learned a ton about how to speak to couples and get them feeling natural and comfortable.
The shoot itself was an absolute dream. I am still over the moon about it. If I could shoot like that everyday with Michelle I would literally be the happiest woman on earth. Michelle is so kind and comfortable. She went above and beyond for me to make sure I had the best experience. Also, she is just so fun to be around. I truly wish I could shoot with her all the time!
If you have the chance to mentor with Michelle I would highly recommend that you do. She can really listen, so speak with her honestly and in working with her you will create magic!
"I booked a mentorship with Michelle because I really wanted to learn about client experience and how to document clients from a perspective that looked unposed and organic. Not only did the shoot exceed my expectations Michelle went above and beyond to ensure that I walked away feeling confident and she took the time to really make sure that I was understanding what I was learning. She planned and styled the whole shoot and made sure we had a ton of variety and different lighting scenarios!
I’ve been to mentorship before and I’ve watched firsthand photographers not explain their process and why they were doing what they were doing and working with Michelle wasn’t like that at all! Throughout the whole shoot Michelle was engaged in my learning as she would interact with our couple and she would explain in detail to me why she was doing certain things! Not only was that very helpful for me when learning, it was a tangible take away and easy for me to apply when shooting my own couples because I actually understood her “why”.
Michelle is very dedicated and has a warm caring heart. She wants to make sure that everyone that comes under her mentorship wing walks away feeling like they took something very valuable away and that they can leave feeling more confident in their photography. From the start of my inquiry, she sent me a detailed questionnaire and made sure she completely understood what I wanted to learn!
I highly recommend if you’re in the market for learning from a pro to level up your storytelling and overall skills as a photographer (new or old to the industry) that you reach out to Michelle! Not only is she incredibly talented she’s so kind and working with her was like hanging out with a lifelong friend!"
“I’m so thankful that I was able to invest in Michelle and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
