I'm a wedding and portrait photographer passionate about capturing love stories.

I'm michele


I'm an Atlanta based wedding photographer born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida! Photography is something that I've always been passionate about... I guess you could say it runs in my blood. My grandpa "Pops" Milkey was a wedding photographer in Jacksonville for many years and owned his own studio named Bob-Syl Studio. I grew up listening to my dad tell me stories about how he would help my Pops in the dark room developing wedding film. He remembers shooting weddings weekend after weekend and absolutely loved it. Dad was so passionate and talented that when he joined the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War that he was given orders to work as a Marine Photographer.

As I was growing up I always loved taking photos and editing on my computer. I worked on my high school's yearbook team and photographed almost every game and event our school had. I put the camera down for a few years when I went to undergrad at Florida State University and then my J.D. at Mercer University School of Law. I ended up in Atlanta in 2019 and have been enjoying every minute since. I've loved practicing law, but photography will always have a special place in my heart. One of the reasons I love being behind the camera so much is that I get to capture images that will last you a lifetime. We all know the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words," right? We'll I'd love to be a part of writing your story and capturing those photos you'll look at for years to come!

a little background story...



Working hard so I can do the things I want to do with friends and family. I grew up with very determined parents and thankfully we've gotten to travel the world and do some bucket list things!

favorite place

Anywhere I need a passport. Seriously, I LOVE to travel. If it was possible I would take off and travel the world. If I had to pick one place, anywhere in Greece.

Fun Fact

I'm a practicing attorney! Yes, you read that right. Photography is my full time job while I work part time in the legal world.


Well photography used to be my secret talent, but it's not so secret anymore! I'd have to say I'm a pretty good cook and charcuterie board maker.


Walking my dog Jackson all around the beltline, cooking new meals, spending time with friends, traveling.


Health and wellness. Specifically, hot yoga! That sounds cliche, but learning to incorporate balance in my life had helped tremendously!

My core values

I've been in this business long enough to know that every wedding and photoshoot are TOTALLY different! Each couple and event is unique, that means I need to adjust my shooting style and the way I capture your day! I don't want this to just be a business relationship, I mean I'm photographing your most important moments! My goal at the end of the day is to make sure your gallery captures who you are.



You know when you go to a wedding and take photos smiling and insta-worthy photos? While I'm 100% here for that, I capture the little details. Was a parent crying as you reached the alter? Was your ring sparkling in the sunlight? Did your guests throw their heels to the side to dance on the dance floor? Those are photos I also include in your gallery to tell a story of your day!

Detail focused


This might be the hardest, but most rewarding one! Like I've said, not every wedding and photoshoot are the same. I spend my time on Instagram and Pinterest getting ideas for your shoot. I don't want every gallery of mine to look the same. The FUN part of this is when YOU get involved! Have a Pinterest board for your wedding? send it to me, we'll get it done. See a post on Instagram you like? DM me, I'll make it happen!
