Meet Michelle


I specialize in inclusive wedding photography for all. I went from being engayged to being a Fresno Wedding Photographer when I couldn't find any photographers locally who held my same values.  

Fueled by equal parts coffee and passion,  I believe your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. I believe in real moments and genuine connection. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. 

And I can't wait to get to know you!

I’m Michelle Gunn

Michelle was a godsend, before and during our wedding. She was there for us whenever we had questions before the big day and on the day captured our wedding beautifully. We had planned a number of big set pieces which were captures amazingly and she kept up the energy throughout the day. She helped capture the spontaneity of precious moments. Afterwards her shots were edited in a professional yet elegant matter that we and our family and friends adore.

Michelle went over and beyond more than once for my wife and I. She was considerate of our struggles during COVID with having to reschedule. She guided us through every step of our wedding. She shared some examples to get the ball rolling and let us customize whatever we wanted. Michelle is so friendly and personable. She was worth every cent. We were truly lucky to find her and would use her services in the future. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle, I don’t even know where to begin. All I can say is that you have clients for life. To be able to relive a day through photos is remarkable - we experience so much joy and awe viewing our special day. You captured it perfectly through your lenses. More than a vendor, you are a friend to us and we are so grateful for you. 💕

“Me and my wife used her for our 200+ wedding and not only was she professional and so sweet she captured memories that I honestly cannot put a price on. She thought of things we honestly did not remember and went the extra mile to become a part of our day while working with our family she was outstanding! I personally loved that she will tell you the most flattering positions but still managed to capture images that came out genuine and gorgeous. Hands down will be our future photography for years to come. “

Her attention to detail, flexibility, and most important her inclusivity is unmatched.”

I was never obsessed with weddings — until I got engayged.  

My wife & I were ecstatic to start planning our wedding. A week into it, I attended my first bridal show, and after walking through every vendor's booth, I noticed a consistent theme: the wedding industry is very heteronormative. This wasn’t true just for the vendors at that particular wedding show, but across the board outside of that bridal show, too.

It felt as though we had to 'come out' to every vendor we came into contact with. It was exhausting. 

So instead, we began looking for a photographer that was an open ally for the LGBTQIA+ community, someone who specialized in non-traditional families. Through this process, it dawned on me that other couples might be experiencing the same stressors, and it inspired me to shift my photography skills to focus on capturing and cherishing love of all kinds, creating an especially safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community.

It was a natural next step to be honest. My wife comes from a very blended family ( 1 of 7 with half + step siblings), and I also come from blended + chosen families.



That every couple, love story, & wedding are unique,

That your portraits should reflect who you are, and

 That a great wedding photographer will serve you & ensure you are taken care of.
