Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a passionate wedding photographer focused on creating a unique experience for each of my diverse clients. I also help aspiring and experienced photographers gain skills that will propel them to become leaders in the field of wedding photography through my wedding photography education course.
My story begins and ends with the remarkable people that I have the honor of collaborating with during their extraordinary life moments. I hope we can write our chapter together.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER & EDUCATOR
Let me start with the ladies I love the most, my brides! I am head-over-heels in love with my brides. From their wants and needs to the fantastic visions they have for their wedding days, I have and need a deep connection with each of them.
The M Harris brides are not only looking for the best wedding photographers, but they are looking for the right wedding photographer. You have come to the right place if you want more than just someone to show up to your wedding, snap some elemental images, and end the relationship by giving you some photos.
Oh, there is so much more than you will get from me.
I genuinely believe that I must be a fan of yours as much as you are a fan of mine. Lopsided relationships tend to fade over time, and I am looking for clients that have the long-term vision for their lives in mind. Memorable photography comes from experience and skill combined with meaning and passion.
I put a high-level of value on my clients as they are the most beautiful people in the world. I buy into my client's spirits, demeanor, and, most importantly, their love for one another. I photograph weddings because I want and even have to buy into love. For me, there is no other way.
Moreover, wedding photos should be more than just pictures you put in a box in your wardrobe and overlook for years. Genuinely artistic photography is the showcase piece that you display on your walls, the keepsake of your life that you send to your families for their homes, and the beauty which allows you to reflect on the occasions that matter most to you.
I develop long-standing relationships that will enable me to follow my brides through the beautiful moments that they experience. These relationships are why M Harris brides are my clients for life. Below, I'll discuss more on this novel feature exclusive to my brides and grooms…

I document weddings using my camera coupled with my experience, and then I highlight the brides in my blog. Consequently, you have an opportunity to see some of my work and to get excited about your big day.
Based in the Washington, DC area, I pride myself on the recognition I have earned from the local wedding industry’s most awarded resources as one of the top local wedding photographers.
The effort I put into my client's weddings is an ALL IN mentality, and the tireless work you will see has resulted in accolades that take most people their entire careers to earn. I’m not one to boast, but I’m not afraid of self-advocating, and I believe that is a benefit to my clients.

Wedding days are but a brief flash in the lives of my clients, and yet I adore them so much that I aspire to keep our friendship healthy and connected. Seeing my clients grow into their new lives is why I offer the exclusive M HARRIS CLIENT FOR LIFE service.

This photo session is my way of staying joined to those that believe in me which are sequentially the people I love.
Staying local is not my only calling as I have served many clients as their preferred photographer for destination weddings. My travel offerings include choices for family get-togethers such as distinctive dinners, group excursions, and more.
Plus, I will be there for you the rest of your days with my CLIENT FOR LIFE service which I include in all of my destination wedding photography packages.
