Hello! I’m Kiernan.

Creating pictures that move people, be it to tears, laughter, or tears of laughter, is the driving force behind all that I do. Getting a couple that is so visibly in love in front of my camera and creating memories for them makes my heart flutter. Something that one of my brides told me that I will never forget is “neither my husband nor myself are very photogenic, but you were able to guide us and get every shot on our list taken beautifully where we miraculously don’t look awkward” Capturing your love story and conveying it is what my team and I are all about.

Being professionally trained, my attention to detail is top notch. I am an expert in both natural light and flash, dark venues and harsh sun don’t scare my team and I. We thrive in all environments, and come with all the lighting equipment necessary in creating your dream photos. I want your photos to be held dear by your family and friends, timeless mementos, and to be a true representation of the passion between you and your fiancé. I would love to get to know you, and to be with you every step of the way. CONTACT ME



The most important part about wedding photos is you being comfortable in front of the camera, which I know does not come naturally to most. That is why I put an emphasis on the client experience and customer service. From the moment you reach out, know that my top priority is making everything easier for you. I don’t just show up on the day of to take photos. On our consultation call, we go over all the important details to ensure you know exactly what you can expect. I want to know what your vision for the day is, what you are most excited for, and what your priorities are. I am happy to help with your schedule, respond quickly, make sure every photo with every family member is captured, and am incredibly comfortable and thrive in high stress situations.

Something that I cannot recommend enough is an engagement session, especially if you don’t feel at home in front of the camera. It is a great way to get some practice before your big day, you’ll know what to expect, and you’ll have professional portraits from something other than your wedding to share with family and friends.

My favorite part about photographing weddings is capturing photos that are an accurate representation of who you are as a couple. For some that is more formal posed photos, and for others that is playful candids, or somewhere in the middle. Something I like to create with you that is unique to me and my services is a posing guide. It’s exactly what it sounds like! You send me over some must have photos and I add some poses based on your style, that way we don’t miss anything. I offer an in advance venue walkthrough in which we can check out your venue together and pick out the most romantic places for photos. I send a next day sneak peak of your photos after the wedding so you have something you can post/share right away! And the rest of your photos are sent two to three weeks after your wedding date. Most other photographers take up to three months. If there are unexpected delays on your wedding day, we are adaptable, quick on our feet, and work well under pressure.

We have told HUNDREDS of stories for our clients,

here is what they had to say about working with Kiernan Michelle Photography.

Elopement Photographer Los Angeles


“Kiernan was such a WONDERFUL and talented asset to our wedding. She did a great job blending in without making herself too known, but still informed me of the times that one typically does things during a ceremony. When taking posed photos, her instructions on how to smile, where to stand, etc were all quite clear. Our pictures turned out STUNNING! I am so in love with every single one, she captured our personalities so well- even getting some amazing mid-laugh shots of us, our party, and our guests. On top of all this, she’s both very sweet and professional and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer!”



“I instantly felt that Kiernan was the right person for the job. I genuinely liked her vibe, disposition and the professional way that she carried herself. Kiernan showed us her beautiful portfolio which made me feel so comfortable having her capture my big day. I loved the getting ready pictures, the shots of the audience as they waited for me to come down the aisle, and this beautiful candid shot of my godmother crying two months before her death, which I will cherish forever! She had unwavering patience as my mother tried to get all 100+ members of my family into a single shot. She was so helpful and professional and I love my photos.”
