  • First things first. If you’re looking for a professional, experienced photographer with an eye for detail and the ability to capture the emotion and spontaneity of an event, I will 100% recommend Michelle. From the outset, Michelle was the epitome of professionalism. Before our wedding we met Michelle for a pre-wedding shoot which allowed us to get to know one another and build rapport. It also introduced us to the style of Michelle’s gentle yet experienced direction. It can be awkward if you’re not used to being in front of a camera but we were soon in the spirit of things and had some excellent shots from our engagement session. On the wedding day, Michelle was there to capture all the little moments that neither of us had really thought about. Shoes. Rings. Hair. Flower arrangements. Table settings. Pre-ceremony nerves. After our ceremony Michelle was a guiding light, leading us through the storm of people and giving us a few much-needed moments of calm in the chaos of a hu... Read more

  • If you need a photographer, then look no further! Michelle was hands down the greatest photographer we have ever had! Her energy and enthusiasm made our engagement shoot and wedding more perfect than we could have ever dreamed! She isn't afraid to get drenched with water, or down in the dirt just for that perfect shot! There is no downtime with her, she is constantly going from action shot, candid and posed, telling us exactly what she wanted every time. Never was she stumped as to what to do next. Yes, she is slightly more expensive than others, but you get what you pay for and she is truly worth every single penny. We will definitely be using her for ALL future photoshoots, she truly is the best around!

  • Finding the perfect person who will tell one of the biggest, most important stories in our life was something we did not take lightly. Immediately after seeing Michelle's work (for the very first time ever) on Yelp!, we knew without a doubt that she would tell our story in the best way possible. Communicating with Michelle was effortless - she makes herself accessible (email/call/text whenever), responds lightning fast, gives great recommendations, and is frankly just a pleasant person to talk to. This connection was so important for us as we were extremely nervous about being in front of a camera. She made us feel like our authentic selves and we ended up having the best time during our engagement shoot! The big day came and she could not have been more amazing to us and our guests. Her photojournalism style of documenting resulted in pictures you can FEEL. We are so grateful to have these memories told through her eyes. For the best in the business, do not look any further.

  • I just want to start by saying, the absolute BEST decision my now husband and I made during our entire wedding planning process.. was hiring Michelle to be our photographer! Every photo is gorgeous and will be our most treasured gifts for the rest of our lives. On top of this, Michelle is just an absolute JOY to work with! She made the entire process easy and stress free, even though we were living and planning from across the country. Our engagement shoot was a blast (we were for real laughing in almost every photo!) and our wedding day was the same! She is professional, always quick to get back to us via email/text, and we sincerely appreciated her keeping us in the loop with updates on the delivery of our final photos. Michelle is forever our girl for any and all professional photography!

  • My husband and I have a bit of a unique story with Michelle that we hold close to our hearts. Michelle photographed our best friend’s wedding five years ago. We loved their pictures back then and decided to reach out to her. Lucky for us, she was available for our wedding date! From the moment we signed our contract, Michelle was super helpful and easy to contact! First of all, I love that she includes her engagement photos with her packages. This gave us an opportunity to get to know Michelle and how she worked before our big day. It also allowed us to get any awkwardness out of the way since we have never had pictures taken of us before. We took our engagement pictures in Santa Barbara, but we had to improvise on location because it was right after the mudslides… This did not concern Michelle one bit! We would shoot in a location and then she would see another location that looked cool and we would venture over there. Needless to say, my now husband and I had a BLAST shooting our... Read more

  • Although Michelle Ramirez Photography is based out of Ventura, her presence is well known in Tulare County and is hands down the best photographer available in the Central Valley. Her professionalism is of the upmost quality and the service she provides is outstanding. Her rates are comparable to most photographers in the area and the quality of her pictures are well worth what she charges and more. Michelle has done my family portraits, my engagements, and wedding photos and every single session has been perfect. For our wedding we had several in depth conversations about what we wanted and she fulfilled every expectation we had. Michelle's artistry is expressed in her imagery, and the creativity in her editing and overall ideas for various shots is unbeatable. She has an innate ability to capture the best moments on film and her photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. The enthusiasm she shows in her craft is apparent in the quality of work she provides. Michelle is simply amazi... Read more

  • Our amazing once in a lifetime experience was captured beautifully by Michelle. She will definitely be used by us again for upcoming events. She also helped me (husband) make my proposal everything and more than I could have imagined it being.

  • Working with Michelle was a fantastic experience. What first attracted us to Michelle was her obvious talent capturing real emotions with beautiful and timeless photos. When we met Michelle, she totally put us at ease with her professionalism, understanding, and reassurance. Our pictures turned out amazing. She is extremely talented and we could not be happier with our wedding photos. We have found our photographer for life and cannot wait to have her capture future memories with my husband and growing family.

  • Michelle was recommended to us from a few friends. We saw her work for a few weddings and we loved it. We contacted her when we got engaged and she did our engagement photos. They came out so beautiful!!! She also did our wedding photos. She was so sweet, patience, and took into a count our ideas for photos. During the day of our wedding she was fun to be around and fit right in with our family and friends. She has a blend of tradition wedding photos with a mixture of unique modern twist. She was very open to all of my pintrist photo ideas. The final product was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to use her again for maternity photos, and newborn photos!

  • Michelle has done several photography sessions for me now and she never disappoints! She is always friendly, creative and makes me feel very comfortable, which makes a huge difference in looking natural, not overly posed and staged in the pictures. She has an amazing eye for what she does and has an obvious passion for her work. I will be using her many more times in the future. I highly recommend her!
