  • When trying to find a wedding photographer, we used our venue's IG feed as a resource. One day, we realized all the photos that stood out to us were coming from the same photographer - Michelle Arlotta. In particular, a photo she captured of a bride and her grandfather caught our attention - it was a beautiful, pure, un-staged moment. You could feel the emotion. That was exactly what we were looking for. Once we connected with Michelle over Skype, it sealed the deal for us. She listened to what we were looking for and offered great advice based on her extensive industry experience. And that was all before the pandemic hit. When we had to postpone our May 1 wedding, Michelle was responsive, transparent, and communicative as we worked through the details of selecting a new date. We couldn't have asked for a better partner in the process. And then, when we decided to still get officially married on our original May 1 date with just the two of us (due to restrictions on public gather... Read more

  • Michelle Arlotta is an all around fantastic human being. She is passionate about her craft and has spent over a decade in the wedding photography business. My wife and I found Michelle's work on instagram, and we were drawn to her ability to so uniquely and aptly capture the most delicate authentic moments. Michelle is truly a master of her craft. She is professional, courteous, thoughtful, considerate, and facilitates a very welcoming and comfortable environment in front of the camera. She conducts herself and her work with honesty and integrity. You would do well to consider her for your special event! Thank you, Michelle!

  • We booked Michelle for my November wedding at the Lake Mohawk Country Club in Sparta NJ and I couldn't be happier with our choice. I was looking for a light and bright style and photographer that embraced candids and the fun of a reception and Michelle really delivered. Of course she does an amazing job with bridal portraits and set family shots but what really differentiates her from other photographers is her ability to capture the little moments that make a wedding day so special. Everyone will tell you that your wedding day goes by too fast (so true!) and it is such a relief to have so many great pictures to help us remember the whole day. I had a large wedding, over 200 people, and I was originally nervous that Michelle would be the only photographer but she was EVERYWHERE. She did bring an assistant but still took almost all the photos herself and I don't think she missed a single moment. If you are looking for a photographer who captures bright colors, beautiful portraits, an... Read more

  • Michelle is an AMAZING photographer. Ever since my sister hired her for her wedding, and I saw her work, I knew I needed to hire her for my wedding. She is all about getting ‘in the moment’ shots which really allowed me and my husband to relive our favorite moments of our wedding. She gets to know you on a personal level and was able to give direction easily during the photos. She takes the time to help building a timeline for the day to make sure we got in all the pictures we wanted. My husband and I are so in love with our wedding photos! I would absolutely hire Michelle again in the future.

  • We are so glad that we chose to work with Michelle on our wedding day. Her relaxed attitude, flexibility and calm composure was exactly the vibe we needed for our day. Her professionalism is unmatched and her extensive experience was super helpful in navigating all the pre-wedding logistical planning (and we had a LOT of logistics to consider!). There are really no words to describe how happy we are with our photos and wedding album - they are perfect. She had us hooked just days after the wedding with her Instagram teasers and blog post - we couldn't wait to get our hands on all of them, and her turnaround time was even quicker than we expected! She was able to capture all of our special moments (despite some heavy photog restrictions in our church), had a ton of patience with my large family portrait requests (even though I had no patience left!) and got some amazing candids of our guests (even after some of them crashed into her post-limbo on the dance floor). Michelle, again, thank... Read more

  • Working with Michelle was great from start to finish. With a tight timeline of 6 months from engaged to married, Michelle was so easy to work with from the very first email. We used the beautiful Frenchtown landscape around her house for our engagement picture session as a "warm up" to being in front of the camera. Our scheduled day had a sky full of scattered showers but Michelle tracked the weather for us to make sure we had perfect lighting around the rain. The day of the wedding can be chaotic but Michelle was proficient, using the time prior the the ceremony well to capture all of the classic bridal shower and family pictures, and stayed with us through the entire night to be sure to get those moment in time shots that may have been forgotten if not captured on film. When we first arrived to the venue, out Maitre'd wanted us to run through the ceremony. Michelle knew this would interfere with getting the pictures we specifically asked for on the premises. She really helped ... Read more

  • My wife and I found Michelle while browsing through other couples photos from our venue. Both being in the creative industry, her more candid, conceptual style and use of lighting,is what really drew us to her work. We got in contact, and set up an initial meeting. After meeting and talking with Michelle, seeing more of her work in person, and discussing our wedding vision and specifics in great detail, we left knowing that she was 100% who we wanted to have shoot our special day. Michelle has such a calm, cool vibe about her, that without realizing how long we were there, when we let to go home, we realized 3 hours had passed and it felt like the blink of an eye. The entire experience of us first meeting felt more like we were hanging out with a lifelong friend than a potential vendor for our wedding. Michelle was such a breathe of fresh air after some of the other vendor meetings we had. To get our feet wet, and have some time in front of the camera before our wedding day we dec... Read more

  • I stumbled upon Michelle’s business on Wedding Wire- I was immediately struck by her amazing use of light and how she captured couples’ happiness in pictures that didn’t look uncomfortably staged. Boy am I happy we chose her!! She truly is a ninja photographer! She captured all the important moments at all these incredible angles and I truly have no idea how she was able to do it. Once she sent the pictures - all the happiness I felt that day came flooding back to me and her images still make me cry with pure happiness whenever I see them. She has an incredible gift and I’m just happy she agreed to share it with us that day. With her help, my wedding day was truly one of the best days of my life. You must hire her!

  • Michelle was amazing! Not only are her pictures incredible, she worked with us to create a comprehensive timeline for the day. We were a little apprehensive about trying to fit in everywhere we wanted to get pictures and thanks to Michelle, we were able to squeeze in all the locations we wanted and didn't feel rushed or that we spent our whole day taking pictures. We loved working with Michelle! She is friendly and easygoing, honest and fun to work with. She really did a great job of telling our wedding day's story.

  • There are so many positive words to describe Michelle’s photography, but the one that comes to mind first is AMAZING. She really is a photo ninja. Michelle photographed our wedding on October 21st at the Stone House Lodge and the photos are nothing short of amazing. Michelle captured every moment of our special day perfectly. She was so responsive during the whole process and made us feel at ease. If you’re looking for a photographer who cares about her clients and goes above and beyond, then Michelle is it. If we could give Michelle 10 stars we would! Her work is beautiful and we will cherish our photographs forever

  • When choosing a photographer for our wedding day, it was really important to me that we find one who doesn't over edit their photos, and to find someone who doesn't stage every single picture that is taken of you that day. Upon first meeting Michelle, she was so down to earth and it felt like we had been talking to a person we had known for years, not someone who we had just met for the first time. After reviewing her work and seeing her style of photography, we knew she was the perfect photographer for us! When we did our engagement session with Michelle, my husband and I were so nervous - but Michelle had a way of making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and not silly or like we were being "staged" for special moments. Fast forward to our wedding day this past October, we felt so comfortable and at ease knowing that she was there to work with us. Michelle is able to capture special moments of your wedding day that you didn't even know existed, and I'm so grateful for... Read more

  • Pictures were incredibly important to my husband and I as we navigated wedding planning, they're one of the few takeaways from this monumental day and after the fact, they give you a glimpse into the many moments you weren't a part of. As we review our pictures, we continue to see all of the stories of our day with the people we love most. Michelle captured our day so spectacularly, each photo beaming with joy, love, and emotion. She is an artist, with an unbelievable understanding of her craft and a style that is so genuine and real. Seamlessly and stealthily Michelle documented our day from place to place without ever getting in the way. Choosing a photographer is an investment, you will not find someone more talented, kind, genuine, and committed than Michelle, she was a pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend her enough!

  • I fell in love with Michelle’s photography the second I went on her website and it honestly only got better from there. Michelle is extremely professional and personable and really got to understand who we were as a couple. She is very experienced in the wedding industry, so she’s also like a fountain of knowledge. She listened to all of our wants, and was very helpful in guiding us through how a typical wedding day works. It was so helpful to have a better understanding of what to expect. We did our engagement shoot and Michelle was so great at breaking the ice. At this point we’ve never posed for pictures before or been the center of attention for anything, so it was great to get some insight on how it would be on our wedding day. In months leading up to the wedding Michelle was always super responsive and helped us set up a perfect timeline for the day. She was at the venue on time and kept us (me, my husband, all our family, and bridal party) on track. The day goes so fast th... Read more

  • From beginning to end we had the BEST experience with Michelle!! Michelle did my cousins wedding and I fell in love with her pictures right then and knew I wanted her to be our wedding photographer some day! Thank you Thank you Thank you for capturing our day so perfectly!! I am beyond happy with our pictures, they are exactly what I had hoped for and trying to pick ones to display in our house is impossible because I want to display them all!!! Just like my cousins wedding, through Michelle's pictures I literally can relive the entire day with how she captured each moment. Working with Michelle really made the wedding planning process a breeze, she was and still is excellent at getting back to me right away with any question I had. On top of that, the day of the wedding was so nice having Michelle there; I really felt like I was working with a friend. Couldn't be happier with everything!!! :) Cannot wait to get our album!!!!
