Info - Shonda Michelson Photography: Michigan Event Photography
Intimate moment shared between newlyweds with her hand on his chest foreheads resting together

When it comes to documenting your day, above else, I approach it as a storyteller.  I aim to document your day as it unfolds, naturally-nothing fake or contrived. Just you as you are & your day as it happens.  My aim is to create a beautiful love story told through a set of unique & timeless photographs. Told through art. I work conscientiously like a friend with a camera & not be the obnoxious & obtrusive photographer that everyone tries to avoid. 

It is important to me that your story is told authentically & is preserved for you to enjoy together for years to come.

Albums are the perfect way to tell your story. A keepsake you will cherish for years to come. As well as a treasured family heirloom to hand down to generations to come.

These are a small 8x8 replica of your large wedding album and can be added on to any album order.

Couples Session

Let’s go on a mini adventure where we explore, laugh and capture beautiful images that you will cherish for a lifetime. Let’s document a relationship with someone special in your life. Let me follow you around & create a collection of candid moments in your element as well as some artistic portraits that speak the story of you and come from my heart. We go with the flow, and include the things & places that mean the most to you in the chapter of your life.

Booking a session is $400 and includes approx. 1-1.5 hours, consultations, personal online gallery to view, order, and download your favorite images.


I truly believe that it is so important to print and display your favorite photographs. Although it is great to have them on your computer to share at any time with a quick click of a button, there is something special about holding a printed photograph in your hands or seeing them hanging on your walls as unique, one of a kind artwork for your home. I would love for you to display your most cherished memories.

I offer keepsakes you will cherish for years to come. As well as treasured family heirlooms to hand down to generations to come. Each product here I hand-picked to tell your story. These are the items that I would (and I have) chosen for myself, that speak to me and my style. I hope you find these keepsakes as valuable as I do.
