Michelle Girard Photography & Design


By concentrating on emotion, movement and laughter, Michelle creates images that emphasize the connection and energy of each couple, group and individual she works with. Michelle fell in love with art at an early age, practicing various forms as far back as she can remember, starting with crayons and moving through acrylics and oils to cameras and computers. That artistic experience shapes her approach in creating images today, combining a knowledge of light, tone and composition. Her artistic approach fuses several elements, including an editorial fashion sense, a taste for distinctive colors and textures, a relaxed shooting approach and a strong passion for capturing “real life” moments.

Michelle is based in Northern Connecticut near the border of Western Massachusetts. She photographs weddings, special events, and portraits (including boudoir, business, and family sessions) on-location in Hartford CT, Springfield MA, Worcester MA, Boston MA, the Berkshires, Providence RI, Brattleboro VT, and surrounding areas. Michelle is available for travel and destination weddings.
