If you are looking for awesome wedding photos, ones where you can feel the excitement of the day as you flip through them then I’m your girl! I’m Michelle, a wedding and lifestyle photographer from Toronto, Ontario, and the one behind Magnolia Studios.


I blend stylish and creative portraits with candid photojournalism to capture your wedding day in a creative and beautiful way.  I have a vibrant, bright and creative style to my photography that I think feels very ‘happy,’ and suits the vibe on a wedding day very well.  This is great for couples who are planning a stylish and fun wedding; perfect for bohemian, vintage, indie, rustic and other unique wedding styles.  I fully appreciate great style, awesome design, and the fine details that so much effort and personality has been put into. I love capturing all the joyful emotions that wedding days bring, so much so that I often have people echo back to me that my photos feel very ‘happy!”


 I tend to attract clients who love life and appreciate a creative spin on things.  Who dig the aesthetic curation of their day almost as much as the nostalgic, emotional side of things.


I offer wedding photography coverage in the Toronto area, as well as Mississauga, Oakville, Hamilton, Burlington, Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Muskoka, Canada Wide and across Europe.





1. I have been a photographer for over 9 years!  I started out shooting fashion, beauty, and music photography in my studio downtown Toronto, which I’m sure you can see a bit of that influence in my photography!  All the while I was also shooting weddings, half of them freelance for myself and half for some of the biggest wedding photography studios in the city.  I went to University for Finance, but after graduation and working in the field for two years, my creative side led me down a different path than I had originally planned…and I am so thankful that it did!  I officially started Magnolia Studios 4 years ago and haven’t looked back since.

2.  My favourite part of my job is sending out client galleries and receiving their emails and messages after viewing their photos. I am so honoured to do what I do, and am so happy to bring a little joy to my clients, their families, their children and even future generations through photography.  There is something really special about capturing a moment in time that you know is incredibly important and valuable to the people involved.  Read some of the praise and reviews I’ve received from clients here.

3. When I shoot I take a creative approach to photography rather than a pre-planned, controlled approach. I intuitively interpret the moment and allow opportunities to unfold.  By taking this approach, I am able to adjust when unexpected things pop up without skipping a beat to ensure that the day continues to run smoothly so that you can enjoy it.  I love a free flow of creativity where we create cool photos together, rather than a long list, a jam packed timeline, and pinterest boardss

4.  I am a style lover who is obsessed with colour, design, texture, patterns, and the infinite ways we can use them to create something new. I love thrift shopping, antiquing, sea shelling – hunting for a good find, and searching for treasure in many different places.

5.  I love discussing and reading about big ideas, business and entrepreneurship, and of course metaphysics and the universe.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me and I hope to learn more about you!
