"Michelle was amazing to work with. She was very responsive from the first email I sent. We had a no -traditional wedding & she was flexible with our timing and activities of the day. We loved having her at the wedding. She definitely fit in with our guests and felt like she was one of th, we never felt like we were being pulled away to take photos. When we got the photos back, which happened very quickly we were incredibly happy! They were all so beautiful & exactly what we wanted. We will definitely be using Michelle's services again in the future!" -D.D., June 2012"A huge thank you to Michelle for her fantastic images and professionalism before, during and after our wedding. I was very impressed with her communication via email though out the process of planning our wedding and always responded very fast when we had questions about timelines. On my wedding day she was very calm, easy to work with and everyone loved her and her assistant. She was able to keep the calm when a couple things didn't go as planned. She somehow was able to keep everything smooth sailing. To my surprise, I got our images 2 weeks after our wedding and they are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! Everything was perfect and she was able to capture everything I had envisioned. I hope to see Michelle again though more milestones in our lives. Babies!" -J. Thompson April, 2012"Dear Michelle, We are overcome with gratitude. Your gift captured O. at his finest and highlighted his best qualities. Thank you for preserving these images of our family at this time inour lives so well and with so much love." -M&M October, 2011"Michelle, We just wanted to write to tell you how much we enjoyed having you as our photographer. Not only were the pictures fabulous, but you showed great professionalism at our wedding and helped our day run smoothly. Thank you for using us as your guinea pigs for the photobooth! It was a blast and the pictures turned out great. Thank you for everything. We loved not only your finished product, but also your service. Thank you so much!" - K. & J. Sudlow July, 2011"Martin and I are very pleased with how the pictures turned out!  It is hard to pick out favorities because they all turned out so nice!  Also we are not sure how you got to all those places to get so many unique photos.  You must have been bustling around in a frenzy but neither of us remember seeing you take many of these photos.  You did a great job of capturing the moments while staying in the background.  You were a lot of fun to work with and helped make the day delightful.  It was also nice we were able to fit in the portraits and the outdoor candids so smoothly before the reception.  You are a true professional and thank you very much for doing such a fantastic job for our special day!" -Martin and Jen Eckhart, April 30, 2011"My daughter Suzy had forwarded the wedding picture slideshow of their wedding at Breezy Point. I just want to say how beautiful their pictures are! Thank you so much for capturing the day and the wonderful memories. The time went so fast; it seemed like it was over just as it was starting! However, we would not have done anything different. The ceremony was very personal, the music by your husband, Patrik, was perfect, and the guests were all those special and close to Suzy and Paul. Right now I have your website up; where I found you have a little write-up about Suzy and Paul, which is lovely, and some of their pictures. I am listening to the music you have playing and felt that I needed to let you know how much we enjoyed you being a part of their wedding day. Please also extent our appreciation to Patrik, as they could not have found anyone more perfect to do their music. God Bless!" -K. Hommedahl (Mother of the Bride)"Michelle recently took my family pictures and sons 1 year photo. She is so easy to work with, very paitent and great with my children! Michelle is a true talent, the photos she took of my family are so beautiful, whenever I look at them they bring tears to my eyes! The photos really tell a story of our life right now and I am so happy we have wonderful pictures to remind us of it. The quality and value is superb and blew our expectations away! I will never go anywhere else...I already am requesting a photo session for next year! Thank you so much Michelle." -Molly S. 9/2010"I've know and worked with Michelle for many years, and can honestly say her photography is far and away the best you'll ever find! She is supremely talented, yet humble and fun to work with. She is a master at catching and immortalizing the little moments that most others miss. The pictures/prints are absolutely gorgeous! I would never go back to getting prints done at any of the usual big box stores as they don't even compare to what she has printed. I've purchased images from her and then had them printed on my own and the outstanding quality of the image doesn't come through." -L.Anguiano"Michelle Tanner photographed our son's 3 month milestone by Lake Harriet in May. She was extremely patient and personable with us and our son. She did an awesome job and captured some great family shots! I would highly recommend Michelle's services to anyone. She will capture your special occasion with class!" -B. Mattson"Michelle is the perfect balance of the consumate professional that one needs to be when entrusted with a couple's special day, and artistic flair that cannot be faked in the final product. She truly helped make our wedding day this past August run seamlessly, and it was such a weight off of my shoulders to know that it was one less thing for me to worry about, because I had the utmost confidence in her abilities as a photographer. She completely listened to our vision, as well as was able to pool her years of professional experience to help enhance that vision with other creative and appropriate suggestions. She arrived early and stayed as long as we needed her. I was so happy to see that she remembered all of those important detailed shots that you definitely want to see in your wedding album, but that can sometimes slip a bride's mind in the midst of the chaos of the big day. Michelle was definitely able to provide a professionalism that was second to none, with extremely reasonable prices for the top notch quality of her work. Her editing after the big day was also amazing without taking away from the realism of the day. I would most definitely recommend her services to any bride and groom looking for a quality, professional and creatively inspired wedding day photographer!" -A. George, Minneapolis"Brides and brides to be, you want to and must book Michelle Tanner! she has amazing and creative ideas that help any session. She also stands back and let's the event play out itself all the while getting phenomenal candid, "in the moment" shots that are priceless. She is punctual at the event and with product. She has ideas that are cutting edge... your photos will NOT look like everyone else's... instead you will have beautiful original photographs that are art pieces you will want to hang in large form on your wall. You will have so many photos to choose from after your session you will be finding space for them. She has a way with using light, background and environment that is above and beyond. Book her today! " -A. Gray, Minneapolis"Michelle has an extraordinary talent for photography. Because of her background in music and art, she brings that artist's eye and sensibility to each of her shoots and has an innate ability to capture detail and emotion. The photos she took of us simply transcend what is observable in real life. She is an unusual find and she was also very affordable given the level of her abilities. Not to mention she is a Mom and has the patience of a saint! I highly recommend her to anyone." -J. Criner, Minneapolis"We've been lucky enough to have two family photo shoots with Michelle and both times she has surpassed our expectations. Her shots are amazing, and the editing work she does afterward really brings out the best in each photo. She's comfortable to work with, and really listened to our suggestions about what we wanted for each shoot. I could never go back to using any other photographer for my family's photos, because no one matches Michelle in quality." -B. Carlson, St. Paul"I have worked with Michelle a few times now. She has done my nursing Mother/child photos, my son's 1 year photos, family photos, and my daughter's senior pictures. We have been absolutely thrilled each and every time. Michelle is so easy to work with and our pictures have surpassed our expectations. We get so many compliments on them and will return again and again." -N.Branjord, Minneapolis
