"Hiring Mirelle was one of the best decisions I made when it came to my wedding."

liz & nick

Mirelle is such a talented photographer. We couldn't be happier with how well our engagement photos and wedding photos turned out. All of the images are so natural looking and the light is just gorgeous. Thank you again for giving us such beautiful photos that we'll cherish forever.

"We could not have imagined a more perfect day, or more perfect photographers to share it with."

Mirelle was professional, flexible, very friendly, and her photos were breathtaking! Photography was the largest part of our wedding budget, and we absolutely made the right choice. Right from the beginning, we were totally enamored with her photojournalistic style and the beautiful way she works with light and color.

"Her photographs--both of our engagement and wedding--were out of this world beautiful!"

I can't even comprehend how amazing her photography is. Every image is honestly a stand-alone art piece. Mirelle also went above and beyond to make sure all of our photos were perfect--from scouting out locations ahead of time, to coming up with an amazing back-up plan when it was pouring rain on our wedding day. Mirelle is a dream to work with given how detail-oriented she is--she created a perfect wedding timeline that lent to a stress-free and amazing day! We can't thank Mirelle enough for her amazing work and giving us the perfect pictures to help us relive the best day of our lives.

"She has an incredible eye and her photos are soft and colorful, you can feel the warmth."

jim & Jackie

Mirelle captured our wedding in spectacular detail. She was the ideal photographer, she knew how to get the most out of my wife and me. She was professional and friendly, thoughtful and caring, engaging and easy to get along with. She kept the whole family smiling and captured those timeless images. I would recommend her 100 times over. We are so lucky to have found her and to have lured her to the East Coast for a Newport wedding. Plus now she is a friend for life. We love her and her work!

what can we expect from our investment?

You can expect a professional, courteous, and experienced photographer. Working with your planner, I will offer advice on your wedding day timeline to ensure that you not only have time for the photographs you want with the best lighting, but that you also ENJOY your wedding!

Why do you prefer to shoot film + Digital?

Film really gives a fine art, timeless feel to photographs. It has taught me to truly consider every photograph I take - to really look at the composition of a photo before I press the shutter. Shooting digital mixed with film allows me to truly capture a wedding from all angles at a pace that matches a wedding day's demands. In the end, my clients will have a collection of timeless, heirloom quality photographs.

will we get the print release for our photos after the wedding?

Absolutely! Upon receiving your images, you will be given an unlimited personal print release. This will allow you to print with any lab you like!

we're having a destination wedding. Do you travel?

Yes! I highly recommend hiring someone like myself who is confident and experienced in traveling abroad from a photographer's standpoint. Send me information about your travel plans, and I will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.
