It is oh-so-nice to connect with you. I am Michelle, owner and photographer here at Michelle Lange Photography. When I am not photographing weddings and newborn babies in their parent's arms, I can be found with the loves of my life, my husband and two adorable children. I love exploring new cities and restaurants and day dreaming of homes on Fixer Upper. In the Summer, there is nothing better than the feeling of sand between my toes and the smell of a refreshing ocean breeze. I grew up vacationing in Cape Cod, and have been lucky enough to visit some noteworthy beaches in Hawaii, Italy and Florida. In the Winter, my idea of a perfect night is a glass of red wine by the fire with a good puzzle or scrabble game in the works. In my opinion, wine is best when paired with an assortment of cheese, a lot of cheese. Can you tell I grew up in an Italian and French household?
My Favorite Personal Photos

While I am a Starbucks gold card holder, I fell in love with a small coffee shop that opened up before we moved out of our home in New Jersey. They served an amazing coffee called Counter Culture. If you are ever in the Caldwell, NJ area, be sure to stop in and say hello to my friends at Jola Coffee.
I enjoy red red wine just as much as I enjoy my white wine. While I don't have an "Absolute Favorite", one that I had YEARS ago is up there on my list. It's name, The Chocolate Block. A nice Syrah blend. And, recently, we traveled to California for my sister’s wedding. I highly recommend going for a wine tasting at the Brian Arden winery in Calistoga, CA.
That's a hard one. Can I have two? The Big Island of Hawaii is a favorite. I seriously contemplated moving there both times I have been. I also fell in love with Venice, Italy. That city absolutely fascinates me.
Tarte's Shape Tape. Having a newborn does wonders on bringing out those dark circles. Shape tape is a magical concealer that makes them disappear.
Post Wedding Snack
Pizza. I don't know what it is, but after I photograph a wedding, I CRAVE pizza.
No favorites here, but I love a good crime drama and will always love (and miss!) Fixer Upper. I am currently addicted to Million Dollar Listing NY.
It's a toss up between Tave and Pic-Time. Tave is a studio management software and helps me stay super organized. Pic-Time gives my clients beautiful, and easy to use galleries to look at their images in. Be sure to try them both out if you are in the photo business (and get a free trial)!
Have you ever heard of the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush? If you haven’t, you need to know about this amazing little tool. 8 minutes and my hair is salon blow out worthy.
