Michelle Hayes is a New York City based photographer who has documented weddings in New York, California, Germany and Mexico. Michelle's passion for creativity and art first led her to the fashion industry in NYC. After working in design, Michelle found that her true passion did not lie in the clothing themselves but in the desire to connect with people with her camera while making them feel great about the way they looked. This led to a natural desire to capture those special moments for clients, through photography. The fashion industry quickly led to the wedding photography industry where Michelle is able to document and capture the beautiful and emotion-filled images clients would treasure forever.
All of my packages include coverage by Michelle Hayes and a second shooter, online proofing + ordering, modern custom flush-mount album, and hi-res files of images. Professional, creative and modern wedding photography coverage starts at $5150
