Michelle Arlotta

NJ Wedding Photographer



Michelle has been photographing weddings and elopements since 2004. Couples call her a 'wedding ninja' for her ability to capture raw emotion while telling their story in a beautiful, yet comprehensive manner and always with a bit of humor along the way. With over 400 weddings photographed, over 700 albums designed and over 700 weddings edited, Michelle brings not only a high level of technical expertise, but the emotional expertise needed to handle the pressure, timelines, personalities and issues that can arise on a wedding day. Her expertise allows her to quickly navigate issues to help couples achieve the best experience with strong photographic outcomes. While she has worked as a creative for nearly 20 years, her Bachelors and Masters degrees are in the sciences. You'll find she is a great balance of creative and analytical, balancing both worlds to run an efficient business, maintain a great workflow that doesn't compromise quality while still delivering artistry to the story of your day. While the industry has pushed wedding photographers to outsource all of their editing and design, Michelle's extensive experience in those areas cannot be compared to outsourced results. Michelle maintains the integrity of the edits and designs by applying her years of experience and keeping a close connection to her work.
