My now husband and I did both our engagement session and wedding photography with Michelle and she could not have been a better fit for the style of photos that we wanted- they were classic and modern all at once.

Michelle was such a huge help in orchestrating the day-of events for our wedding- she was able to help me figure out how much time we needed for everything to get done and also helped me organize and lay out exactly what types of photos we wanted to capture. I also could not have been more blown away with how quickly she turned around all of our photos and how high-quality our album turned out- we leave it out on our coffee table because it is so beautiful.

Michelle’s thoughtfulness and care in getting to know us personally before the wedding resulted in photos that connected on an emotional level and truly showcased our love and joy that day.

Michelle is an amazingly talented photographer, who captured our all of our favorite memories from our engagement session to our wedding day. The photographs truly encompassed the emotions we were feeling on those days and every time we look through our gorgeous albums it’s like we are transported back!

Our engagement session in Hoboken was the perfect way to work through all of our pre-wedding jitters. Michelle coached us from being stiff and awkward to practically professional models by the end! Kidding, but Michelle was incredibly patient with us and helped us relax enough to create magical moments. Michelle explored all of our favorite spots in Hoboken with us and even stayed late to be sure to capture the gorgeous sunset. The photographs came out better than we could have ever hoped for and we had the hardest time narrowing down which photos to use for save the dates and thank you notes. An amazing problem to have and the sign of a true artist!

From the very beginning, Michelle wanted to know details about us, our venue, our friends/family, and exactly what we wanted in order to give us our fairytale wedding day. She did her own research about our wedding venue beforehand and planned out the best photoshoot locations on the grounds, fighting against the sunset to capture all of the best outdoor moments. Despite the freezing cold temperatures, Michelle’s enthusiasm and excitement kept the bridal party and groomsmen laughing and upbeat throughout the photoshoot. Michelle’s artistic ability to see a beautiful backdrop or the perfect lighting, led to stunning photographs that highlighted us as a couple. Her thoughtfulness and care in getting to know us personally before the wedding resulted in photos that connected on an emotional level and truly showcased our love and joy that day.

Thank you for sharing all of the laughs and smiles with us on our special day and for capturing beautiful memories that we will cherish always!

When the big day came, she not only surpassed my expectations, but made the lead-up to our special day a smooth one.

Planning a wedding and making it fir your idea of “perfection” is a stressful undertaking, however, working with Michelle was a welcomed breeze. Michelle was kind, attentive, creative and patient. We sourced several photographers prior to a friend recommending that we use his photographer for our wedding. After one conversation with Michelle, we were certain that she was the person we wanted to use. Michelle had numerous conversations with my husband and I to understand our expectations for the day and truly learn who we were so she could translate that into our photos. When the big day came, she not only surpassed my expectations, but made the lead-up to our special day a smooth one.

Her imaginative/creative gift was evident in the wonderful photos she took; she and her assistant seemed to capture everything that was important to us without being instructed to do so.  The assistant photographer that Michelle used was equally as talented, patient, easy to work with and caring; they worked as an sync pair. I recall going through the photos and thinking, “wow! she nailed it…I could not have asked for more!”  Using her was the one of the best decisions we made. Thank you!

She truly cares about making her clients happy and goes above and beyond to do so.

Our entire experience with Michelle as our photographer was wonderful.  She truly cares about making her clients happy and goes above and beyond to do so. She has such a great eye and instinct for capturing special moments.  We felt totally comfortable with her and trusted that we would end up with beautiful photos. Our photos and wedding album exceeded our already high expectations.  We would recommend her to anyone and everyone! It is also a great idea to hire her for engagement sessions as well as the wedding. We did that and it was great practice to find poses that work and to get more comfortable in front of the camera before the big day.

Michelle gets 5 stars from this happy couple!  We will treasure our beautiful engagement and wedding photos forever!

You can truly see the emotions within the photographs.

I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle at my previous job. She was a great coworker and friend and I saw first hand the beautiful pictures she would take and knew how much of a passion it was for her. So when I got engaged I reached back out to her and it was one of the easiest decisions we made for our wedding was to hire Michelle as our photographer. She captured everything beautifully from our engagement pictures to our wedding day. You can truly see the emotions within the photographs. She is so easy to work with and very creative. We got endless compliments on our photos and feel so lucky to have such great memories to look back on for years to come. We would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for a true artist to capture their special day.

You captured the feeling, not just the moment.

With all the time, energy and money that goes in to planning a single wedding day – at some point you let go and pray that the moments you dream of come true, and that someone is there with you to enjoy it, and to help you remember it. Michelle – your passion, creativity, direction and thoughtfulness before, during and after our wedding day was impeccable and invaluable.  You found a way to capture the feeling and emotion of moments which you imperceptibly sought-out throughout the day, authentically telling the story of our wedding.  And today, regardless of how much tequila was consumed that evening, we can be certain that two Christian families can perform the Hora well; that dad brought his own wine; and that grandma is in fact nuts.

A picture is worth a thousand words

… in addition to a million memories, endless smiles and sometimes even tears. To say that we experience all of the above each and every time we look at our wedding photos would be an understatement. The care and professionalism that Michelle Lala Clark Photography took during our most special day was more than we could have imagined or hoped for. From the moment she arrived at my makeup appointment, to the moment her and her fabulous assistant snuck away at the very end of the night, we both felt taken care of and rest assured that they were capturing ALL of the right moments … and some that we didn’t even know would end up being our favorite images of the day! A perfect mix of traditional and photojournalistic style, our photos will always remind us of the love and happiness, excitement and nerves felt during our entire wedding day. Thank you Michelle for the gift of a lifetime.

We couldn’t have asked for more gorgeous photos of our wedding day!

My husband Matt and I knew we made the best choice for a photographer for our big day when we first sat down with Michelle. She was incredibly professional, organized, and excited about shooting our wedding. Michelle came to our rehearsal dinner at Hotel du Village and took some beautiful photos of our friends and family the evening before the wedding. My guests repeatedly commented on how courteous and kind she was at the dinner, trying her best not to interfere with our meal.

Michelle took it upon herself to go to our wedding venue days before the event to plan out the perfect settings for the photos. She wrote to me to tell me how excited she was to photograph on the big day.

On the day of our wedding at Holly Hedge Estate, Michelle and her assistant, Danyelle, showed up bright and early to begin shooting. They took uncountable gorgeous photos of the property and the preparations. Michelle also got numerous candid photos of the wedding party getting dressed for the event. I teared up when I saw the photos of my family and friends, who at the time had no idea the camera was catching their emotional moments.

Matt and I couldn’t have asked for more gorgeous photos of our wedding day! It truly appeared that Michelle and Danyelle captured every significant moment that day, from the sweat ridden kissing of the bride, to my crazy friends throwing us up and down on the chairs!

It was so difficult narrowing down photos for the album because all of them were so perfect. In the end, I received a gorgeous book of my memories of my beautiful wedding. I have shared it with family and friends, each one of them in marveling over Michelle’s creativity and skill.

I will recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for the perfect person to capture the special moments of their lives. She is a true artist!

Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!

We cannot say enough about Michelle Lala Photography!!! Absolutely amazing!!!!!!! My husband and I got married in Mexico and Michelle came highly recommended by one of my close friends.  Michelle was extremely professional and sweet throughout the entire process.  We were in touch many times before the trip and of course during.  Michelle had some amazing ideas for pictures and we were absolutely blown away with the finished product.  She is creative, unique, detail-oriented and gives every photo a personal touch.  We’ve gotten soooo many compliments on our wedding photos and many of our friends and family have hired Michelle since and all were extremely satisfied with her work.  Her work certainly speaks for itself and I cannot say enough about her as a person.  We highly recommend Michelle Lala Photography and cannot wait to book her again in the future!!

When I approached Michelle about photographing my proposal to Regina, she sounded surprised but incredibly excited! A “paparazzi” at a proposal was not something she had done before! But as I began to explain to her my ideas for the proposal, we began to work cohesively to discuss details, location and timing. Michelle was amazing! She remained out of sight but managed to get the most incredible shots leading up into the proposal (the confused fiance-to-be), of the grand gesture itself, and the celebration afterwards! This was a once in a lifetime event and working with Michelle to have it documented for Regina was a great surprise which she loved, and a treat for us as a couple! This one definitely went down in the history books as a great engagement proposal, and if you don’t believe me, check out Michelle’s photos!

I cannot begin to explain how incredible it is to say that we have our engagement documented in photos! And incredible photos at that! I was shocked to see Michelle come running across the street following my “I will!”, snapping away. After the initial celebration, Michelle took amazing photos of us as a couple, and these have now become our “engagement session” photos and will be used on our Save-the-Dates! Michelle emailed Steve and I the photos by the following day, knowing that friends and family would be dying to see them! From working with Steve, to delivering us the final product, Michelle’s work is top notch, and we couldn’t be happier! I would recommend to all men planning an engagement to do as my fiance did – Hire Michelle as your personal paparazzi!! Your fiance will be thrilled!!
