Artistic Wedding Photography 
And Videography

I know you’ve been searching for the perfect-fit expert to capture every distinctive moment on your wedding day. You recognize your marriage is a long-term journey, not just a single-day event. You desire to be able to preserve your wedding day experiences and relive them year after year. 

But, it isn’t always easy to find an independent photographer or videographer who works seamlessly together. I am committed to providing you with a captivating photo collection while my husband, Nate, can provide you with an emotional video that you’ll be proud to share. 

Meet the loves of my life; Nate, Laila, Jordyn, and our sweet Yorkie, Blush. 

I’m Michelle Harris Templeton, the founder and principal photographer of M Harris Studios. I withdrew from the corporate world to pursue a better life, passion for photography, and serving others properly.

After documenting hundreds of weddings around the world, I have become known for my soft style and my signature Client for Life experience, where I stay with my clients long after their wedding day.

Hey there, Gorgeous!


My clients become an addition to my loving extended family. 

“STOP LOOKING! Michelle and Nate will not disappoint you! This duo will make all of your wedding photo dreams come true and then some!”
