- You fall in love with my work;
- We meet (either in person or via phone/Skype. We adore each other;
- You say YES! I email you a contract.
- On your wedding day, we have the best day (ever) together. 







Yes. Delivered with your wedding album.






Be yourself. Be authentic. Be real. Don't follow the trends and look like every other wedding you're seeing on the blogs and in magazines. Be you.







Modern, natural, uncomplicated, fun.




Ohhh... modern, natural, uncomplicated, fun, and REAL. I'll capture who you are and what makes your relationship unique... that look he gives you. The way you snuggle his neck. The way you laugh together. I'll let things happen naturally - letting you be YOU. My job is to create photographs that make you laugh/cry/remember everything when you look at them. Your job is to have the best day of your life. 







Your wedding portraits will be uncomplicated and a lot of fun.
Just like you. (Rarely more than 30 minutes.) 



- A relaxed & fun photography experience. That's what I do.
- Wedding photographs that don't look like your friend's wedding. As a photojournalist, I don't have a set list of photos - I follow the action and capture what is really happening - not something that I set-up. It's impossible for 2 weddings to look the same.
- Experience... Weddings are unlike any other type of photography - the heightened emotions, the constantly changing light, the fast pacing and strict timelines... I went to art school and I've been photographing weddings a while. I know what I'm doing.
- I never forget the trust that you put in me to create amazing, unique, meaningful photographs. 


- We arrive an hour before showtime to photograph you getting ready (my favorite time of the day);
- You see each other for the first time* (this is when we all start to cry);
- Your bridal party & family arrives for portraits (fast, fun painless);
- We spend a little more time photographing you being you together;
- You get married! (We cry some more.);
- You enjoy cocktail hour with your friends & family (and NOT taking 3 hours of portraits);
- People toast you, you visit, cut a cake, dance, and maybe throw a bouquet/garter.
- Optional. It's totally OK to do the portraits after the ceremony - and yes, they'll still be less than 30 minutes.







A lot! Generally 800-1,200 perfectly processed photos. (I've never been accused of shooting too little.)







I will have a sneak-peek up on FACEBOOK and my BLOG quickly after your event. All your photos will be online within 30 days. 






You'll choose your favorite images, my designer will create an online layout (making as many changes as you like), and soon you'll receive a special delivery from Italy! It's simple and fun.






We produce insanely gorgeous Italian-made custom wedding albums, beautiful reprints & fine-art cards, canvas prints, frames, and Companion Books (cute little versions of your own album).





Why yes I do! I take 6-8 weeks off every winter and travel somewhere fun to work on my ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY. It keeps me fresh and I come back relaxed & ready for wedding season! There are also food, events, headshots, etc. images on my CORPORATE PHOTOGRAPHY WEBSITE.






I have a super hip shared space in SF and a pretty rockin' home office in my Jack London Square loft. We can even "meet" via Skype and/or phone.






Email me at info@michellewalker.com or call (415) 235-5400. I'll email you a contract. As soon as it's returned with the retainer (1/3 of the package price), the date is yours!








Yep. Every single kind.








Oui, ja, si, ndiyo, ie, evet. Yes.
