Engagement Session | Emily & Josh

I met Josh through work. Our quirks clicked, and we instantly hit it off as buds! The first several weeks, I heard over and over”Emily this…” and “Emily that….”. He would excitedly show me pictures and gush about how amazing she is
and how lucky he was.

He’s not wrong.

The very first time I met Emily, I gave her a huge hug, and she handed me an overflowing plate of her famous rocky road brownies.
I knew we were destined to be great friends, lol.

I love these two!! They’re dear friends to me, and I have watched them for awhile now.
I’m so excited that they’re getting married soon! Sadly, I will be out of
the state and unable to attend their wedding, but I wish them
the best of everything! All the love and
happiness that the world has
to offer.

Love,
LMA

This gorgeous and intimately charming stylized shoot was a joy to design and photograph.The colors, navy blue, lavender, gold, and silver, were inspired by the ambiance of a soft, romantic evening at twilight, just after the sun sinks below the horizon.

The vendors were a dream to work with! Please check them out, show some love and stay for a spell!!

Lena Michelle Photography: The Magical Birthday of My Little Pony, Paisley

Once upon a time, in a magical land that is too far from me, a beautiful little girl was born to two souls that love her more than their own lives.

This little beauty’s name is Paisley Ever, and she is my two year old niece. I fell in love with her the moment I learned that we were expecting a new addition to our family, and she has had my heart ever since.

Two years old!! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown. This little pony’s birthday was magical! I’m so happy I could be there with my family and friends to celebrate this little treasure of our’s! The decorations were gorgeous and so adorable! That’s my Sister, y’all!! The food was delicious, and the company was the best there is.

A huge thank you to Paisley’s Mom and Dad, Aimy and Mike, and her Aunt Vicki, Aunt Amy, Grammy and Papaw!! I had so much fun!

All my love to my little pony, Paisley!! Happy birthday dear one!

Love, our Pony Family 😉

Name Change Notice

Hi! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! I most certainly did  I spent the week at Aspen Grove with my husband’s family. It was so beautiful, and we had such a great time!

I have an announcement. As you can see, I have changed my name to Lena Michelle Photography. I’m sorry if I’ve given you whiplash with all the changing around. There is a lovely gal whose web address was similar to my previous name; so, I have changed to avoid any confusion. I have received a lot of referrals recently; so, if you have referred someone, please let them know.

Thank you and have a beautiful day!!
