I'M MICHELLE LIEB!

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU

photographer & owner

Hello, friends! I am Michelle, the joyful mother of a beautiful and long-awaited son, and I am a wife to the man of my dreams. I am blessed by God with the honor of visually curating the stories of the moments that make life so special and sweet because I understand firsthand how important they are to us. 

With every wedding I am interested in the portraiture, the tender moments, shared laughter, the heirloom details and the gathering of friends and family. I want to help tell your story with you so you can treasure these moments for your entire lives. I believe that your wedding is not just about one day but the entire experience from the planning stage to the growing old together. I want to provide you with images that you can look back on and smile, laugh, and be reminded of your beginning together.

My desire is to run a business with integrity and joy, forming positive relationships with other wedding professionals and focusing on a select number of clients each year so I can work closely with my couples. I would love to chat with you and hear your vision or help create one with you. If I am available on your date and you believe that we are the right fit, then I would love to be a part of your big day. I can also recommend professionals in the surrounding areas to help you with every aspect of your wedding day.

Art, architecture and art history will always be a part of my life.  In addition to photography, I enjoy watercolor, book binding and the paper arts...but these days, mostly coloring with my four year old!

My STORY:

THE REASON WHY

I do what I do

I fell in love with photography and art from a very early age.  I first remember my father's hand developed images and loved to browse through photographs of my mother at the local fruit market in New York, Alaskan wildlife from my dad's travels and early images of a crazy little toddler (yup, that was me) and still later, my baby brother.  My love of the camera never ceased and I went on to receive my bachelor's degree from James Madison University with a major in art with a photography and watercolor concentration...and later, a masters degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, specializing in photography and the book arts. I later taught photography as well as advanced placement studio art and art history at Liberty High School in Bealeton, Virginia from 2002-2013.  After the birth of my favorite photographic subject...my adorable little son, I retired from teaching to focus on being mommy and on the business of photography.
