And Two Were Tamed


intimate elopement + stirring wedding photography for the rugged explorers with wildling souls

throughout time, story telling has always been held in high regard

 
to re-call a moment is to relive a glimpse of captured time, to keep the tale alive
I am a visual story teller and you have a story that should be documented well

 

As a destination elopement and wedding photographer, my heart behind a camera is to document people's stories. I re-tell tales of lives that are intertwined with the raw emotions shared between people who are wildly in love. More than the kind of love shared amongst friends or family, this type of love is the result of two unique humans who CHOSE to invest in each other - and that is pretty magical. 

I love natural color, emotion, and movement; you'll see these marked throughout my work and editing style. When photographing I look for unique light, unposed embraces, and intimate moments. Whether you want to hike at sunrise and elope on a mountaintop, have an intimate wedding with a backyard BBQ, or proclaim your vows in the church you grew up in, I'd love to get to know you and your honey + capture your story through photographs that will last a lifetime.

"Booking with Micah, to capture the most intimate moments with you and your person, is like booking your best friend who "actually" has professional photography skills! Micah loves love and somehow she brings out and captures the best part of you. It takes a certain kind of skill, nay talent, to make folks feel so comfortable in front of the camera - with Micah it's like the camera doesn't even exist (which is perfect for the camera shy person like me). My now husband and I fell in love with our engagement photos, so we flew her out to Austin, TX, so she could capture the happiest day of our life! Our wedding day flew by so quickly and it's often hard to capture the best moments in a photo because you simply "had to be there" but with Micah, when you look at your pictures, it's like you were! Our photos are beautiful, will last a life time, and make us feel as though we are reliving our best moments! I was looking at my wedding photos this past weekend while my grandma gave us a scare at the hospital. Looking at the photos reminded me of happier times and gave us all something to look forward to with her recovery. While scrolling through the whole album, I was SO grateful that Micah captured photos of my whole family and especially my grandma (who she says was so much fun to shoot)! She captured a series of photos of her opening the champagne, popping the champagne and then accidentally dropping a piece of the champagne off the balcony and hoping no one saw... It’s too bad I can’t post the series of this moment on a review but trust me it’s hilarious! It takes raw talent to capture the spirit of my grandma. ❤️ thank you, Micah! 10/10 would recommend to capture all of life’s beautiful and hilarious moments. I cannot say enough great things about you! Micah is professional, funny, and will basically be part of your family by the end of the day. If you are looking for someone to bring out the adventurous spirit in you, then Micah is who you need! xoxo!"

“Micah flew all the way out to Maui to take photos of my lover and I for our engagement. We hiked and got photos in a whole variety of back drops and places. I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out. These photos capture our love so perfectly and I will cherish them for the rest of our lives. Thank you so being so flexible and capturing exactly what we wanted and more!” 

-Sophia Mershad (Maui, Hawaii, Adventure Session)

"Micah was awesome to work with from the moment I considered hiring her. She worked within my budget, asked all the right questions ahead of time and got every picture I wanted. She even had a second shooter, which I highly recommend as they were able to get different angles of the same moment! (Huge for first looks and coming down the aisle) My wedding was Gatsby themed and they both dressed the part! When I saw the photos, I was stunned at how gorgeous they were. Every moment captured just beautifully and Micah really paid attention to all the details I asked for. I would hire her without a second thought for any event in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for an artistic and talented photographer. Micah was easy to get in touch with prior to and after the wedding, making sure I had everything I needed. I’m truly grateful for all her help and expertise. I felt so comfortable letting her do what she does and tried to trust that I didn’t need to direct her every move. It paid off big time, as I got the most amazing pictures I have ever seen for a wedding. Ever. Thank you Micah! You are truly magnificent!"

"Micah is not your average wedding photographer. Not only did this lady create beautiful art that captured the happiest day of my life, she helped create a flexible, happy, stress-free setting throughout my day. She even went on a mountain run and swam across a lake with me! I mean, come on. Incredible. Micah listened to my needs, and understood the vision I had for my wedding. She paid attention to the details that mattered to me, and accepted any concerns professionally and without anxiety. Her work speaks for itself! These pictures will last forever, and because of her my memory of these moments is clear and happy. You are an absolute artist!! I am so, so happy and thankful that you worked with us. I poured so much into the wedding, to see it reflected in such a beautiful way is beyond my greatest expectations. Your job is so important. The portfolio, the images, the history that you preserve is going to bring joy to me till my final breath. I am honestly crying while I type this to you, I just can't be more thankful for your work. You captured so many beautiful, small moments of happiness. Thank you so much. You are a light."

“I met Micah five years ago, hitch hiking her way up the coast of California on Highway 1, with her friend, Cassandra. One had a sign that said Humboldt and the other I dont remember. I picked them up and we spent a really great day together in San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge. Strangers yet sisters. I was on my own journey and yet we kept contact over the years. When we planned a vacation for my husband and I, to go to Colorado, I hit her up, asked if she would take a couple pictures of us together. We're going on 25 years soon. I've watched her pictures over the last 5 years. Her eye is amazing. The way she blends nature with your personalities into art always takes my breath away. It really is art!! And totally different from what I would normally see for pictures by other photographers. There's a beauty and a realness in her photos. She met us on Lookout Mountain and Steve, who never smiles, was instantly at ease. She took a bunch of us with the smoky Colorado sunset and mountains for the backdrop. Steve loved her at first sight! So, I get these photos and there aren't even words to describe how much I love them!! She not only took a few pictures of us, she took dozens. And they totally captured us. The bond, history and love we share, I can see it in her work. She made it come literally alive!! I love all of them and now must have them all as some of my most treasured possessions!! What a great day that was!! I am so grateful to you, Micah! You went above & beyond what I wanted or expected!! You are the very best!! We're now the proud owners of some of your gorgeous art!! I just love the heck out of you, Adventure Girl!!! So, if you'd like one of a kind photos, shes your lady!! She’s all that and more!! You won't be disappointed!!”

-Karen Bowen (Golden, Colorado, Adventure Session)

"Micah with And Two Were Tamed is AMAZING. So easy to work with, flexible, and has an awesome personality. She is seriously creative and produces beautiful works of art with her photography. Don't take my word for it, just look at some of her captures! Wouldn't hesitate one bit to recommend her to capture one of life's most special days. Thanks again, Micah, for the best gift we received for our wedding day - our pictures!"

-Brigitte Godfrey (Breckenridge, Colorado, Wedding)

“Micah has been my photographer for the past 6 years and her work is amazing. It brings smiles and laughter to people faces. She captures photography in an amazing way. It’s very raw, real and true. I’m never smiling for a photo, I’m smiling for the experience and she’s able to capture faces and smiles and moments I could have never faked which I love. She has an eye for seeing beauty in everything and everyone and she’s able to capture it in a way that it shines brighter then ever. Thank you Micah your work is incredible!”

-Cassandra Cantu (Crested Butte, Colorado, Adventure Session)

“Absolutely love working with Micah, she has taken our engagement photos, (which she came to Nashville for) fun adventure photos with just my wife (Colorado mtns), vanlife photos of both of us (Clear Creek Canyon), and our wedding (in Oregon). An absolute fun professional who takes amazing photos and brings a fun experience with each shoot. I would highly recommend her. Thank you for all the memories you have taken of us Micah.”

-Damon Hill (Chattanooga, Tennessee, Adventure Session)

“I’ve been photographed by Micah for a few shoots, portraits, engagement shoot, vanlife shoot, and most importantly Wedding! I love her style... photo shoots with Micah are FUN. You get to move and be natural... it doesn’t feel like a posed shoot at all. When she’s taken photos of my husband and I, sometimes we forget she’s even there. All the shoots I’ve done with her have become a memory in themselves. And the product👌🏽 I’m beyond happy with the photos she’s created. Capturing love and memories in our adventurous state. It really is worth it to get quality photos by Micah of your big day or even just for an average day.”

-Sarah Hill (Terrebonne Smith Rock, Oregon, Wedding)

“Micah is INCREDIBLE - you need her for whatever moments you want to capture and relive every day, forever. She photographed our wedding day and was a true ray of sunshine. There is something to be said for the peace of mind that comes with being confident in your photographer and knowing every shot she takes is going to be awesome, and holy smokes, Micah delivered. We are so grateful to relive our day {so clearly} through her pictures and we will surely love them for years to come.”

-Nina Atkinson (Beaver Creek, Colorado, Wedding)

“Micah photographed our private elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park on July of 2018, and not only did I gain breath taking photos, but I gained a friend in her as well. That’s how personable she is while she is working with you! She truly wanted to get to know us as individuals and made sure to let our personalities shine through in our photos. Since it was ONLY my husband and I at our wedding, she served not only as our photographer but also as our cheerleader, support system, and personal assistant (LOL)! She played a huge part in making our day a dream come true. I spent hours searching for the perfect photographer for my ceremony. I think what - some - people fail to realize is that while photographers are professionals, they are also artists and it’s important to choose a photographer whose work matches your vision. She more than matched ours!! Micah, if I could give you more than 5 stars I would!”

-Morgan Preece (Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, Elopement)

“Micah was amazing! She helped me surprise my now wife when I proposed in the mountains! She does absolutely incredible work, and the best part, she didn't rush us! She stayed with us and got all the shots we wanted! 10 out of 5 stars!!”

-Dan Knight (Frisco, Colorado, Adventure Session)

“Micah has photographed me multiple times for my business, and she is a joy to work with. She is always so excited and happy when she is behind the camera, and is always professional. I would recommend her again and again.”

-Melissa Malouff (Breckenridge, Colorado, Adventure Session)

“Micah did an excellent job for our wedding! She flew all the way across the US just for us and did a phenomenal job. I haven’t seen photography like her’s anywhere before. Her pictures are literally all over the walls of my house. Honestly you want Micah to shoot for you whatever the event is. Her personality and character are just as wonderful and you will be glad to have met her.”

-Nicholas Liberto (Lynchburg, Virginia, Wedding)
