From the moment we contacted Michelle, she was a joy to work with and a breath of fresh air.

The day of the wedding, Michelle and her husband arrived on time and immediately went into action. They didn’t miss a shot! On top of all that, our photos were all we hoped for and more. Having worked for a professional photographer for 4 years, I know what goes into a great photograph and too often, anyone with a digital SLR can be mistaken for a professional. Each one of our photos is of amazing quality. Oh, and they were presented to us for viewing within 2 weeks after our wedding, which is incredibly fast.


What can we say about Michelle? She is awesome!

First off, she’s just a cool chick! Her and her husband, Matt were so fun to work with and had great ideas for photo locations! We did our engagement shoot in Flagstaff and they were able to come up to Montana to shoot our wedding as well. It was a delight to have them. Great communication, easy transactions (payments, contract signing, etc.), and very personable. They made us feel comfortable (especially me who usually HATES taking photos), and even sent us a great little date night care package the week before the wedding. SO thoughtful! Most importantly, our photos turned out Amazingly. We are so happy we met Michelle and Matt, our photographers and friends!


Michelle was so amazing!!

She was very flexible with our needs. My husband is in the military, and he was only going to be in town for one day before Christmas. She made it possible for us to have an engagement session in that very narrow window of time. We are so thankful we found her!! Everyone loves my engagement photos and my wedding photos! I would definitely work with her again!


Michelle and Matt were so easy to work with…

And they were really over accommodating – getting us drinks, making sure we were comfortable. Matt even went as far as reminding me to light the candles on the bar and then doing so himself! They were so amazing, and I was actually sad when they said it was time for them go. I would recommend (and already have) them to anyone I knew for any reason.


Michelle and Matt were the best!

They were so fun and made us feel really relaxed during our engagement session (which I would highly recommend) which made taking photos with them feel really natural on our wedding day. Our photos are incredible. I generally hate being in photos, but I felt relaxed with them and they came out beautifully. They were really unobtrusive during the ceremony, I honestly didn’t even notice them there. Michelle was really attentive to what I wanted in our wedding photos, and developed a really flexible, personal timeline for the day of, which was so helpful. I would definitely hire Michelle and Matt again!


Michelle was incredibly professional and had many great ideas for poses!

She worked hard to keep the family/bridal pictures moving quickly and had a master plan for the flow of the day to keep everything on schedule. Matt, her second shooter, was always there to help and offered ideas which also turned out to be a lot of fun! Our pictures are amazing!! Thank you Michelle!!


I live in Arkansas and found Michelle when I searched online for photographers near the Grand Canyon.

My now fiancé and I were getting engaged there, and I wanted an engagement photo session. Michelle and her husband Matt were easy and fun to work with. We communicated beforehand about what we wanted out of our session, and Michelle nailed it. Her work is fabulous. Her personality is sparkling, even at 7 a.m. on a Sunday after she shot a Saturday night wedding. And her turnaround time on the photos is fast. I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Michelle and Matt. I loved everything about my experience with them.


Michelle and Matt were great at our wedding.

We loved our photos both me and my husband looked great and happy in every one. They were quick to capture the moments I didn’t want to forget. I’m so glad we chose Michelle as our wedding photographer.


Michelle and her husband, Matt were amazing to work with! 

They are friendly and so very down to earth! My fiancé and I felt instantly at ease when we met them. We were both nervous about having photos taken because we tend to be camera shy, but 5 minutes into our first shoot (engagement) we felt like we were hanging out laughing with a friend! We completely forgot about the camera and Michelle has a way of making your anxiety disappear. They became great friends of ours and by the day of our wedding it was like our friends hanging out with us taking pictures! We couldn’t have asked for anything better in wedding photographers!


Michelle and Matt are a wonderful, creative and trustworthy team to work with, and fun to boot!

They blended their creativity and skills with my requests and I ended up with the photos of my dreams. They have a way of helping the subjects be comfortable in the shots so you get some wonderful expressions and fun poses – or candid shots – whatever you like, she works with you. Everybody loves these photos, especially me (the bride)! I would hands down recommend Michelle Koechle Photography to anyone. Just take a look at her website and you’ll see what a bada** photographer she is.


Michelle and Matt were wonderful!

I couldn’t ask for a more professional yet fun couple to take our engagement and wedding photos. We will recommend Michelle to anyone looking to have professional photos!
