Michelle Varela is a New York based photographer with a main focus on weddings. Her work displays a spectrum ranging from documentary to intimate, stylized portraiture.
Her interest in photography began at the age of 16 when she was in high school and since then she has been in love with the image making process. She attended School of Visual Arts and International Center of photography in New York City.
Through this medium, she aims to grasp the fleeting anxieties, palpable passions, and nuanced intimacy that make a bride and groom remember their wedding for years to come. She makes sure they get an opportunity to re-live that visceral connection with each other and their loved ones every time they pick up their album. She gives the couple the glamour and elegance they expect, layering on the emotions that they indubitably get lost in during the event.
