GET TO KNOW THE US

welcome

Michele, Andy & their team were very easy to work with and very fun to have with us on the day of! They were extremely organized to make sure they got all of the pictures we wanted to have happen on our special day. Prior to the wedding, they worked with us to schedule an engagement session. In addition, our wedding was postponed due to COVID and they were  very accommodating in the postponement/rescheduling process. When the wedding was finally able to happen, we received our photographs back in just under 2 weeks! We would highly recommend using Misha Media to any bride and groom!

"very easy to work with and very fun "

kind words

We had the pleasure of working with Michele and Christopher for our wedding. They are absolutely delightful to work with. Michele had a positive energy just over the phone and on email, Christopher was our actual photographer the day of and he was so experienced and had an eye to detail. We also got the photo booth and it was a hit at the wedding. Love them!

LET's CONNECT

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

You’re engaged!! This is a huge milestone in your relationship, it is the magic moment when you went from dating to committing to your loved one for life. It is easy to just jump to the next stage of wedding planning but it is important to stop and smell the roses. Capturing all the love, excitement and giddiness is our specialty!

Engagement Session

Remember your wedding just as it was. With video, you get to see all the details, all the moments just as they happened on the biggest day of your life. The number one thing that we hear a lot is that our couples love reliving the story of their day and seeing moments that they missed.

Wedding VIDEO

Grab a prop and strike a pose! Even though you may have already hired a professional photographer, you get a little conscious when someone is behind the camera. The photo booth lets you take fun and crazy photos :)

THE COLLECTIONS

MORE DETAILS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.

ALBUMS

All of our sessions include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

Engagement Sessions

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, we’ll need a completed contract and a 33% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let us know and we’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due 1 week before the wedding.

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fullyedited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on Facebook as long as you credit us and link to our website.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

We typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from our home in Annapolis, Maryland. Fees vary depending on location so ask us for more details.
