Wedding Day Photography

Now, we get to start planning your engagement session! Michaela will personally be the one at your engagement session and main point of contact throughout your process! Engagement sessions are. gifted to our couples because they allow us to break the ice before your wedding day!

Your engagement session

Once the contract is signed and retainer is paid we get into the things we get to give YOU! Planning guides, vendor lists, a little something for you, and questionnaires!


Upon inquiry you will receive a better look into the packages, pricing, payment plans, experience, and have the opportunity to set up a zoom to make sure we are the right fit!


The Process

The month before your wedding is when we like to set up a time to hop on a zoom or a phone call to walk through setting up your timeline. You can expect this to take about 30- 45 minutes, and then we are golden for your wedding day! 

The Final month

One of the team members of Michaela Kessler photography & Co. will be there to not only photograph your wedding day but also support you throughout it. Through tears, laughs, and pure joy we will be right by your side through it all! 

Wedding day

You can expect your wedding gallery within 12 weeks of the wedding date, but we strive to get the images to you as soon as we can! Once you have your gallery you can share the link with your friends and family. Oh and start planning out which ones to print so they don't stay trapped on your phone forever!

Gallery delivery

When working with Michaela Kessler & Co. you are getting a photographer for your wedding day who is literally an extension of myself. I have handpicked people that I trust to give you the best photos and experience. But booking to gallery delivery you will be in touch with me personally!

What does it mean to book the team?

Not always! I often reccomennd a 2nd shooter for weddings where there are lots of traveling, when everyone is in different places, or if you have a guest count over 150! If you want a 2nd we can customize what that could look like for your wedding day!

Do i need a second shooter?

I have introduced a payment plan option for couples that allows you to not feel like you have to sacrifice when it comes to your photos! We offer a wide variety of payment plan options in your favor!

How do you split up payments?

Do not wait to book! When it comes time to secure your photographer, do it ASAP, most of us book a year to 8 months out- especially for those fall dates!

How can i make sure you're availible for my wedding?

RAW (aka unedited photos) will not be delivered to you under any circumstances. You are hiring me for the way I edit and my photography style, and handing raws do not reflect that. 

can i get the raws?

Yes! I offer prints and albums to every client, and honestly I truly reccommend you take advantage printing your images. They deserve to have a place in your home, not just your social media feed.

can we order prints or an album?

The story that led up to this moment

It's all about 


"we thought we were only getting a photographer but she was so much more!"

"I choose Michaela as my photographer because I love her style of photos and her style went perfectly with what we were looking for. When we booked with her, we thought we were only getting a photographer but she was so much more! She kept in contact with us the entire time we were planning and helped with any details we needed. She was organized and just such a wonderful person to be around. When the wedding day came she went ABOVE AND BEYOND. She carried many of my important items throughout the day and made sure everything was together and safe. She went out of her way to help me remove a lipstick stain from my dress and made sure I had nothing to worry about. I can't thank her enough for all she did for us, and on top of being absolutely amazing on our wedding day, the pictures turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! Michaela is such an amazing photographer and such a great and fun person to be around. I couldn't be happier that she was the one who photographed out big day and I am so thankful for everything she has done for us."

"I have been so so blessed to have found her"

"Michaela is so amazing, let me start by saying in a photographer and sooooo picky. I looked through fifty other photographers with all kinds of styles and pricing and Michaela was seriously the perfect fit for us. I knew I was choosing someone professional, fun, artistic, stylistic, and incredible. I knew she would balance capturing our day while also being an amazing partner in helping me feel less anxious. I have been so so blessed to have found her and her accept us as clients. Her photos are seriously so amazing and as a plus sized woman I thought I would have maybe a handful of pictures I like- when actually I LOVED 99% of them. She is the one. Stop looking. You’ve found her."

"She made us feel so comfortable and vibed with us really well "

"Where do I start? Michaela is probably one of the best photographers in the area & I would highly recommend her to anyone & everyone needing a wedding photographer or family photos. She is seriously the sweetest and most talented photographer I’ve ever worked with!! She made us feel so comfortable and vibed with us really well ever since our engagement photos which were also perfect! I am forever grateful for finding her and and so happy with the wedding photos that she got back to me only 5 days after the wedding! She captured us so perfectly and everyone loved her and raved about how sweet she was and how amazing her attention to detail was. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH MICHAELA!! I can’t wait to hire you for future life events!"

"She really made me feel calm and prepared about the whole wedding day from start to finish."

"Starting with our engagement photos, she really set the bar high. She was so fun to be around and better yet, her pictures of us were amazing!! In the months leading up to our wedding, she was always willing to text or FaceTime me when I had any questions or concerns. She really made me feel calm and prepared about the whole wedding day from start to finish. She helped me plan out the entire day in a timeline which was awesome and super helpful. On the wedding day, she was not only there to take our picture, but she was there for support in anything we needed or forgot. After talking with all of my family and guests at the wedding, it turned out that not only me, but everyone was impressed with her. I kept telling everyone “and she’s only 20yrs old!!!” They could not believe me!! She is truly amazing and the best to work with!! I am so sad our wedding day is over, I could pose for her all day! The pictures she took for us were truly amazing and really captured the day and it’s beauty. If you are on the fence about which photographer to go with, pick Michaela. You won’t be disappointed!!! "
