Hello! I’m Kiernan.

I have always had a love for photography, and people. Creating pictures that move people, be it to tears, laughter, or tears of laughter, is my 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 is just the best job ever and I am forever thankful that I have been gifted with the talent of photography. 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” and that is why I do what I do! Love always shines through in photos.

Another priority for me is to understand every couples needs, and what is important to them, and to capture extra stuff on top of that, especially candids. A great example of this, from one of my brides, “a beautiful candid shot of my godmother crying two months before her death, which I will cherish forever”. I want your photos to be held dear by your family and friends, and to be a true representation of the passion between you and your fiancé. So, let’s do this thing! I would love to get to know you, and to capture and create some lasting memories! Let’s connect! CONTACT ME



The most important part about wedding photos is you being comfortable (or, if you’re not so into the photo thing, looking comfortable) in front of the camera, and I think the best way to get there is to have a good rapport with your wedding photographer. And so, the first step in “The Experience” is getting to know each other! I want to know what your vision for the day is, get excited about your venue, and swoon over your dress with you. I am just as excited that you’re getting married as you are! Next I want you to know that I am with you every step of the way with any help you need. I am happy to give anything from timeline recommendations, to posing tips. An engagement shoot is a great way to get some practice in front of the camera before your big day, and it also helps you to know what to expect on the day of your wedding! The most important thing for me is your wedding day running as smooth as possible and capturing all the important stuff from your first look to your first kiss, and all the emotions that come along with them.

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. Your wedding will be awesome, and just as picture perfect as you’re imagining! However, if there are unexpected delays on your wedding day, I am also adaptable, quick on my feet, and work well under pressure.

We have told THOUSANDS of stories for our clients,

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

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.”
