Michelle Kennaugh photography will take your wedding to new heights. As a top sonoma county wedding photographer, Michelle also takes pride in being one of the best Napa Valley wedding photographers as well!

I'm a wedding and portrait photographer passionate about capturing love stories.



I'm a Napa Valley native. I've been a hobbyist photographer most of my life, with rolling hills and gorgeous vineyards as my backdrop. I'm a Registered Nurse, and was working long hours in the Cardiac/Stroke unit of my hospital. After being in the frontline of the unrelenting Pandemic for a few years, I realized I needed a change of pace in my life and decided to turn my passion into a business. Creating beautiful art in the form of photography really speaks to my creative soul and feels like a perfect fit.

As a mother of two, I know what moments matter most to be captured through my lens. Your moments deserve to be celebrated, cherished, and remembered forever. As your photographer, I pledge to embark on this artistic journey with you. My goal is to transform moments in time into eternal masterpieces for you.

My core values

Authenticity is at the heart of my photography. I believe that each wedding is wonderfully unique, and my mission is to capture its true spirit without pretense. My approach is all about genuine moments and real emotions. I strive to create images that resonate with authenticity, where every smile, tear, and laughter is sincerely felt. This philosophy ensures that your wedding photos will not only reflect the day itself but also the pure joy and unscripted beauty of your special moments.



Being detail-focused is fundamental to my photography style. I pay close attention to the small, intricate elements that make your wedding day uniquely yours. From the delicate lace on your gown to the subtle expressions of your guests, no detail is too minor. My goal is to preserve these details in vivid clarity, allowing you to relive every aspect of your day through your photos. This meticulous attention ensures that your wedding album is not just a collection of pictures, but a comprehensive and beautiful story of your day.

Detail focused


Embracing creativity is central to my approach as a wedding photographer. I thrive on thinking outside the box and bringing a fresh perspective to every wedding shoot. Whether it's playing with light and shadows, finding unique angles, or incorporating the surrounding environment, my creative vision helps to create stunning, one-of-a-kind images. I believe that each couple deserves a visually captivating story that reflects their personality and the magic of their big day. This creative commitment ensures that your wedding photos are not just seen, but truly felt and remembered.
