the experience


      Moments of a Lifetime (with Ease):

      Intimate and streamlined, wedding day coverage begins well before the wedding. All wedding collections include ample preparation in order to best implement each couple’s vision through a visually stirring frame.

      In addition to thoughtfully executed images, I offer my expertise in creating a carefree and effortless photography experience from location scouting to timeline projection. I especially love collaborating with your chosen wedding professionals to exact a seamless behind-the-scenes experience. Need style advice (or just a listening ear?) As a self-proclaimed art-nerd with a BFA in Interior Design, I love to talk all things design with you, anytime.

      Investment:

      Designed with flexibility in mind, each wedding collection encompasses coverage time and print rights to the images. Additional options include rehearsal dinner coverage, engagement session, albums and other print heirlooms. My clients’ average investment is between $5000 and $6000. Portrait sessions begin at $650. If you’re ready to find out more and receive a custom quote, please reach out to schedule your personal consultation.

      Caught on Film:

      My first time holding a few rolls of medium-format film was nothing short of transcendent: I was actually holding magic, and I couldn’t wait to see what those emulsions produced. (One could say that much like you and your beloved, it was fate.) I love to work with my hands, so the tangible nature of film became the beating heart to the Morning Light creative process, a thoughtful, intentional experience that guides you to the most enduring images.

      Although my first choice of mediums is film, I have a digital camera at the ready for the appropriate situations.

       

      Travel:

      Yes, please. An experienced explorer and seeker of new experiences, I relish any opportunity to photograph and be inspired by an exciting location, and I would love nothing more than to document your excursion. Conveniently located in Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC, my bags are already packed.

      “My husband and I weren’t really sure what to look for when trying to find a photographer for our wedding, but after speaking with Michelle, we knew we didn’t want to work with anyone else. Her attention to detail and subtle ways of making each moment count make her so enjoyable to work with. She is quiet, but behind-the-camera, her personality shines through! She’s not afraid to give direction and make big groups work together to snap the perfect picture. There were so many pictures Adam and I got back and were ASTONISHED by the portrait Michelle made come to life. We truly felt like we were able to re-live our special day, which meant the world to us. Michelle is angelic in her ways behind-the-film, and I’m beyond grateful we chose her to capture our wedding day!”

      “Michelle was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding. She has a great eye, and every one of our photos from the engagement shoot and wedding day is STUNNING! We love that Michelle took the time to get to know us and our families; she really took charge the day of and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. She is so on top of everything and makes the day run smoothly from start to finish. We can’t thank her enough for capturing our day so beautifully!”

      “Michelle was an absolute dream to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos! Neither of us are the photo shoot type, but she made us feel completely at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. Most importantly, the photos are beyond anything we could have ever hoped for. They are hands down the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen. It’s been months, and I still flip through them all the time and can’t believe how amazing they are. Your wedding day can be a bit of blur because you have a million things going on, but Michelle captured who we are as a couple and the entire feel of our wedding day, so we can remember every detail for the rest of our lives. She’s the best!”

      “Our experience with Michelle was wonderful! Michelle was great in communicating with me and answering my questions which really put me at ease. She made things clear and was prompt in sending the appropriate emails. She was very pleasant to work with and made everything much easier. On the day of the wedding, she was very accommodating and worked well with all the group photos and portraits. She also worked in tandem with our cinematographer. The photos turned out gorgeous! She did a great job capturing the atmosphere with all the guests. Michelle was very sweet, and we can’t recommend her enough; you won’t regret it!”

      “I cannot say enough about how amazing Michelle was. She was the best decision we made for our wedding day. From the first meeting until seeing our finished wedding pictures, she was very professional, organized, and detail-oriented. I contacted Michelle, and she met with us one afternoon for coffee to talk about the kinds of pictures I wanted for my wedding before signing the contract. I knew right away that she was the perfect photographer for us. Michelle gave us suggestions for locations for our engagement pictures, and she even spent a day scoping out the perfect location.  She was always on top of everything throughout the whole process. She contacted me before the wedding to make a list of all the pictures that I wanted to be captured, and she got every single picture on our wedding day. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely recommend her to all my friends. We got our wedding photos back quickly, and we absolutely love them. Michelle is amazing, and we are so happy we had her as our wedding photographer.”

      “My daughter and I searched for months to find the photographer who would capture her wedding with a soft, unique lighting. The talent of Michelle Landreau was exactly what we were searching for. The wedding pictures we received were beyond our expectations. They are beautiful, romantic, soft, and timeless. Going through the pictures is like reliving the entire wedding day over again, from every quick smile to the first look. Michelle worked diligently with us to capture those cherished candid moments. She was behind every moment of the wedding, yet never invasive. Her creative eye worked magic! “
