Kind Words& Press

"Mikaela is such an amazing wedding photographer! She is easily accessible and I could reach her any day I needed to. From the beginning, Mikaela does a great job of getting to know us as a couple and our love story so I feel like she really understood what I wanted and paid attention to detail. To say the weather didn't cooperate with our wedding experience is an understatement. We had to reschedule our engagement photo session because of the rain but Mikaela was so accommodating, kind and flexible to find the perfect day for us. On the actual day of our wedding, it actually rained the entire day. We had planned for an outdoor ceremony but the weather just didn't allow it. Mikaela came prepared with umbrellas and all to make sure we got what we wanted. In the end, we were able to get some incredible shots even with the rain that came out absolutely magical. While I had some specific shots and poses I really wanted to get, Mikaela and her husband worked so well together and came up with some really creative ideas in addition to what I wanted. This aspect in a photographer is extremely important because she was able to do exactly what I imagined while also using her artistry to create work in her aesthetic which is what I initially fell in love with. If you were to take a look at our photo album, you wouldn't even has guessed that it had rained all day. Everything about her work is romantic, fresh, and lovely. As a bride who planned every detail of the day with no wedding planner, one thing I didn't anticipate was not being able to set everything up. I had to rely on all my vendors do get everything done and on time while dealing with the weather. It was so amazing to have a photographer that came on time, captured every detail I worked so hard on, and checked all the boxes of what I wanted. I loved how much preparation she does to make sure you get the shots you want. If you are a bride that is not very detail oriented, you will also appreciate Mikaela's creative direction. Her assistant who is also her husband did an amazing job with the groomsmen, capturing the happiness of our reception, and assisting her with everything she needed. You can tell they make a great team and as newlyweds themselves understand what a big and significant day it truly is. We now have priceless pieces of artwork that I will be showcasing forever. I can't say enough excellent things about Mikaela and her services. If you want a stress free photography experience, choose Mikaela Marie Photography."

"Mikaela was such an incredible photographer from start to finish of our wedding journey. She promptly met me for a meeting when I was looking for vendors, presented a beautiful portfolio, and we got along great, so I knew it was the perfect fit. Mikaela made us feel comfortable with great planning tools to help prep for our wedding such as a list of photo's we wanted to have, trinkets and accents to bring for beautiful detail shots and was always on time. Her and her husband worked as a great team on our wedding day and didn't only do a fantastic job with our photos, they also made it so enjoyable and fun throughout the day! She also encouraged us to do an engagement session so my fiance knew what to expect for the day of wedding photos, and I cannot recommend this enough! It was a huge help and by our wedding day we were pros with some of the poses and made the process much smoother! Overall I had a fantastic experience with Mikaela and have already recommend her to several friends!"-Emily & Tim

My name is Mikaela and I am a believer in true love stories. I believe that those moments of  love are worth preserving. My goal as a wedding photographer is to capture those moments of love between you and your spouse so that you will be able to  look back at that day and be reminded of your love and commitment to each other forever . 

I have been a lover of photos for my entire life. When I was a child you could find me digging through a box of old prints in my parents closet for hours on end. But, it wasn't until I moved to D.C. to be with my now husband that I decided to buy a DSLR to capture all of the fun we would be having in the big city. Once I picked up that camera I never put it down. I was hooked. I fell in love with the ability to preserve memories ; to capture a moment so that it could be forever frozen in time. 

While my home base is in DC I am available to travel worldwide and have recently been to Paris, New York, and Charleston! I would LOVE to travel for your wedding day!
