“We reconnected + remembered.”

Thank you, not just for the lovely photos... but for the therapy session this event was for us. We reconnected, remembered why we fell in love and also looked into the future of what's to come. Thank you... the experience alone will make each photograph more memorable.

“Perfect blend of freedom + direction.”

Not only does Michelle capture the moment, she is amazing to work with! Super fun personality and the candid moments captured are priceless. Michelle is a perfect blend of freedom & direction. Her style perfectly reflects her personality; fun yet easy-going. Not only did she amaze US, our friends and family were stunned by her art. They truly saw “us” portrayed in the photos.

“created a relaxing + Fun environment.”

The Suitcase Studio is simply the best. Michelle is such a wonderful person and captured the most perfect moments on our wedding day. She was also very patient while working with our family and created such a relaxing and fun environment. We took engagement and wedding photos with her and all of the pictures turned out amazing! After all of the hard work we put in making our wedding a special day, we are lucky to have found her to help capture all of the great memories for us!

“the emotions are genuine.”

One of the things I like best about her photography is the FEEL. She captured moments in my life, not just poses for a shoot. I treasure each image as a photographic time capsule. The emotions are genuine, the overall feel of each image is simply a glimpse into a moment in time. The absolute best photographer from shoot to finish."

“We were so impressed.”

We were so impressed!  She was able to capture not only the guests enjoying themselves, but also the canine fashion models strutting their stuff perfectly at the Bend Spay+Neuter Project's annual Furball fundraising event!  She really did a great job of making sure we got photos from every aspect of the event, from the volunteers to the flower arrangements!

“amazing at capturing small moments.”

Michelle does an amazing job capturing the small moments that you would never think to remember, and even moments you may have missed. She has a friendly demeanor and makes you feel really comfortable. I highly recommend her for any special event.
