St Louis Bride 2014- Liz and Brad
Here are some of my favorite clients featured on blogs:
It’s always nice to hear from clients, and here are a few kind words from some of the people I’ve been blessed enough to photograph over the almost-decade I’ve been shooting.
Julie says: “Working with Michelle from Under Grace Photography was the best experience we had throughout the entire wedding planning process!! Michelle is truly a wonderful photographer and person to work with. She brings a creative edge and vision to the photography process, while capturing the most stunning shots that you couldn’t even imagine. Michelle also created Save the Date cards for us from our engagement photo session that was a part of our package, and we received several compliments on them, as well as the engagement photos and other sessions. The wedding photos were stunning and many have ordered some because of how great they are! We interviewed numerous other wedding photographers and know there are none better than Michelle. We will certainly use her in the future for other services like baby portraits!!”
…… and they did! See below!
Lane and Dad write: Under Grace Photography is AMAZING! I had already recommended her to so many people. She’s is incredibly talented and professional. She truly has an artistic gift. All of our friends and family rave about our pictures and albums. I have enjoyed getting to know her as well. ”
Here they are with little Langley!
Tiffany says: “If you want a photographer that will capture that one single-second moment that is so special, hire Michelle. If you want a photographer with a super-creative eye that produces the biggest “wow” photo of your life, hire Michelle. If you want a photographer that isn’t creepy and doesn’t get in your way, hire Michelle. Michelle is relaxed, yet in control. She is spontaneous, yet organized. She has a quick shutter finger and is always paying attention to the little moments you might otherwise forget. She makes grandparents, adults, children, and dogs smile. She makes people feel comfortable and lets you be yourself. Just let her do her thing, off she goes, and wow – will you be a superfan. Tiffany, Trae, and Santino (ARF!)”
“Under Grace Photography was the best! She worked with us with regard to the date and time (which was hard because my fiance lived in a different state). She took exceptional pictures and also took the time to make sure we were happy with them. The creative ideas and format for our engagement session were unbelievable! I would recommend Under Grace Photography for ANYTHING you may want to have captured in photographs – simply because she captured the love we share for each other so well! The packages offered, the time slots given and the suggestions for locations were all fantastic. 100% effort was given in every way. Loved it! ”
“We have been using Michelle with Under Grace photography for 5 years, and she never disappoints! She is great with our kids, and captures the beauty of the moment. Every session, I hand her a list of what I want, and she delivers! Overall, wonderful experience! ”
“Michelle Ross with Under Grace Photography was FABULOUS! She arrived at our home right on time and immediately impressed us with her professionalism, charm and keen ability to earn the trust of all her photo subjects – old and young alike! She worked efficiently and quickly and with great creativity! She easily managed to get our group of 11family members to cooperate to give her fabulous expressions! She captured the warmth of our family with every image! We could not be happier with the entire experience — and the photographs were so good we had to order all of them! We will cherish them forever. Thank you Under Grace Photography! Most Sincerely, Mark and Barbara Roman”
Brad says: “Michelle was simply amazing. She was organized, very prompt on all responses and made us feel so special on the day of our wedding. The pictures she took were all fantastic and we had hundreds of options to choose from! We would definitely use her again in the future for more photos. ”
“Michelle and her team of incredible photographers made our wedding memories perfect! From the thoughtful and sincere treatment we received from day one, to the amazing gallery and slide show they put together; Under Grace Photography took all our worries away!!! We would recommend them to anyone!! ”
Anne-Michael says: “Michelle Ross was wonderful to work with. Extremely professional but easy going and fun. Everyone has raved about my wedding photographs, even my father who is also a photographer. Her eye for photography and design is phenomenal. She was the best decision I made in planning the wedding! ”
“Michelle is wonderful to work with. Everyone has been complementing my engagement photos and asking where I had them taken. My fiance and I feel that we have very fake smiles when we have photos taken but Michelle captured our real smiles and we really had a good time taking the photos. I have recommended her to all of my friends.”
Paulette says: “Michelle of Under Grace Photo was WONDERFUL. We contacted her regarding a family reunion at Pere Marquette Lodge. She made helpful suggestions about timing for photos and showed up before the appointed hour. She masterfully managed 37 family members, capturing both coordinated family shots as well as candid pics of our gathering. Each and every photo was full of the joy of the moment and we can’t help but smile each time we view them. Many thanks to Michelle for memorializing a very special time for our family with just enough structure to ensure essential shots as well as a perfect dose of “watching from afar” to record special moments.”
David says: ” Michelle is professional, yet fun. She took some great pictures of Britni and I, and I could not be happier with how things have gone thus far. If you are in need of a photographer, set up an appointment with Michelle. ”
Lauren says: “Fantastic! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She caught every special moment on film and captured them with a beautiful artistic touch. She captured the wonderful relationships my new husband and I had with our wedding party and guests, and the love we shared with each other. I’ve recommended Under Grace Photography to all my engaged friends, and those who have seen my pictures have sought Under Grace Photography out for business. You will not be disappointed! ”
“Michelle is an amazing photographer! She takes the basic pictures that everyone expects and loves because they are classics, whether it is senior pictures, engagement pictures or wedding pictures, but she also is incredibly creative and comes up with some very amazing photographs. She is so easy to get along with, she is entertaining and she is VERY easy to work with. She makes you feel like you aren’t sitting there posing for two straight hours which turns out to make the photos look so much more genuine and there aren’t painfully fake smiles in the pictures. She has such a good eye for making use of her surroundings to make the pictures absolutely fabulous, whether it is raining, cloudy or sunny she works with it to make amazing pictures. Every time I need a professional photographs taken I will go to Michelle and I HIGHLY recommend her. ”
Brian says: “Michelle is truly very VERY gifted. Our pictures are AMAZING! We have received many-many compliments on ALL of our photos (engagement session & the big day). She has a wonderful eye and an awesome spirit. She’s amazing to work with and is truly an artist! Michelle also does a wonderful job of balancing rounding everyone up for pictures yet still being sweet & kind. We would highly recommend her to anyone (well, only those wanting really great photos that capture every moment uniquely)…and honestly…we already HAVE!”
“Our wedding photos are amazing! We have gotten so many comments from friends and family that they are the best wedding pics they have ever seen. Michelle and Autumn from Under Grace Photography were able to capture every moment, from getting ready to dancing the night away. They are extremely professional, trustworthy and talented! I would highly recommend them! Thanks!! Staci & Joe Doolin”
Above is a family session I did for them. Their wedding was my first Knot regional magazine feature!
Lisa says: “Michelle was awesome! She took pictures of our 6 month old and they all turned out great. Michelle was really able to capture his true personality in a natural setting (Our home). I have had multiple compliments on the coffee table book and have given out Michelle’s name and number to a number of people already. We already have another date scheduled with Michelle and I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for great memories to be captured through photos! ”
Below is Vincent at seven years!
Melissa write: “Michelle did such a wonderful job with our wedding – the pictures were even more beautiful than we could ever anticipate! She was very professional and a ton of fun to work with!! I’m sure we’ll be using her talent for any photography needs we have in the future! ”
Lo and behold, guess who did baby pictures for them when Elena came along…
Ann says: ” Michelle did a great job on our wedding photos. She is professional, easy to work with, easy going, intuitive with people and I love her style! We will definitely use her again if the need every arises. I’ve had many positive comments about our photos since I’ve shared them with friends and family. “
