I am the best, bravest, most compassionate version of myself with a camera in hand. My goal is to make photographs that help you see the truest version of yourself, your partnership, your family. My approach is highly personal and, I'm told, unconventional. I hope with all hoping that shows through in my work.
For the past decade, I have been refining my vision of artful storytelling. I work to blend my training as a journalist with a natural ability to capture a sincere moment in time, draw my subjects out and put them in the best light – in every way possible. The place where beautiful meets honest is where I always strive to land.
When not shooting, I spend my days with a dog named Comma who snores and barks at all real and animated animals on television. I'm a runner and a film aficionado. I love clever words and a balanced chai. I am outrageously proud of my friends and my sock collection.
I am based in my native Colorado and, upon securing a dogsitter, available worldwide for weddings, portraits, editorials and commercial shoots. Click here to subscribe to my blog and receive updates on upcoming events and travel plans!
Hi, I’m Allison. Born in Florida, raised in Colorado, I’ve been photographing beautiful people for the past 8 years now. I’m a lover of natural light and set out to capture the sweet, intimate moments that happen between families, couples, and all the little in-betweens. My goal in every session is to curate a collection of images that are timeless, classic, and a whole lot of fun!
In my downtime you’ll most likely catch me spending time with my own little loves, hanging with our hound dog, drinking coffee, or shopping. In addition to natural light, I’m a lover of all things Anthropologie, Starbucks, Winter, and cupcakes.
Lover of a morning cup of coffee, sunshine, handbags and shoes, spontaneous shopping spree's, and a good glass of wine with an exquisite charcuterie board.

Kelli Stephenson has been in the beautiful industry for just shy of eight, wonderful, creativity-filled years. She's perfected her craft by taking one-on-one trainings under industry big shots, to the likes of Stephanie Brinkerhoff (with Hair and Makeup by Steph) and Heather Baker, (owner of Makeup by Heather B). She's a self proclaimed "confidence enthusiast", and the braiding go-to girl in her stylist peer group. Kelli has been published for her bridal work seven times in her eight year career, but all accomplishment bragging aside- she's just plain fun to have around on your wedding day. Outside of running her salon, and making her clients feel like a million bucks, she's a wife-y, a pup-mom, and a triathlete.
Brandi opened Blush Dry Bar Salon in 2018 where she and her staff focus on blowouts, makeup, eyelash extensions, and hair extensions. Brandi’s goal is to use her talent to educate, empower, and enable women to look and feel like the best version of themselves not only on their wedding day, but everyday.

Michele — with one L
I'm a Colorado and destination wedding photographer who loves to capture joyful brides and grooms on their wedding day! In fact, you'll probably find me becoming friends with my clients because I adore them so much.
I have a serious case of wanderlust and love to travel, so don't be afraid to ask me to photograph your wedding outside of Colorado!
I also love surprises, so you may find me planning secret vacations for my family, where they don't know the destination — only what to pack. I've also been known to plan entire vacations based on photos I've seen on Instagram. (Who wants to try that with their next anniversary session?)
Don't judge, but I've been told I collect camera lenses the way some girls collect shoes.
I'm a firm believer that the four food groups are guacamole, craft beer, coffee, and ice cream with sprinkles!
Now that you know a little bit about me, I'd love to hear more about you. Feel free to drop me a line on my Let’s Connect page (https://www.michelewithonel.com/lets-connect) to inquire about your upcoming wedding, engagement, or anniversary session — or just to introduce yourself and say hi!
