J.Michelle Photography bio picture

    Chris & Ashlee met in High school over six years ago through mutual friends, they dated over five years when Chris finally popped the big question to Ashlee, Will you marry me? Ashlee wore a lovely fitted wedding gown, the guys wore classic black tux’s with white accents, a classic black and white wedding.

    Surrounded by family and friends on December 20th, 2014 the pair recited their vows to one another in a beautiful outdoor winter ceremony at the KLEA Hall in Bakersfield, Ca. The couple then celebrated and danced the night away with their wedding guests. It was such a privilege to witness Ashlee’s wedding and of course be asked to photograph my cousins special day, you looked abosultuely beautiful Ashlee!

    Wishing Mr. & Mrs. Smith a life time of health, happiness and love!

    Looking back on 2014 I can truly say it was a wonderful year of weddings, ending 2014 with my childhood friend Kristine’s wedding day was truly amazing. I’ve witnessed Kristine and Erik grow together from kids, to adults and now husband and wife. They are a true example of love, friendship and commitment, something that is so rare now days. They married on 12.13.14 on a crisp winter day, I admit I was a little worried about the rain (I mean we only had one of the biggest West Coast storms just days prior to their wedding) thankfully the sun was beaming adding the most delicate light at the time of photos. It was perfect.

    The couple married at El Tango hall with an intimate gathering of family, & friends. Their wedding was perfect and we had such a wonderful time witnessing their special day.  I want to personally thank Kristine & Erik for allowing Matt and I to capture your wedding day, we love you guys and wish you a lifetime of happiness, love, and health! (& lots of little Hertin babies;)


    Happy New Year!

    Cody and Ashley were one of the nicest couples we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Their love and connection for each other was truly beautiful to witness and photograph. The couple tied the knot at the Bakersfield Stockdale Country club on October 4, 2014, the weather was perfect as the pair said I do in front of many  loving family and friends. Their love for each-other truly shines in every photo, such an amazing couple! 


    Ashley and Cody, thank you so much for allowing J.Michelle Photography to capture your amazing wedding! We wish you a life time of happiness, health, and love. Enjoy !

    “What God has joined together let no man separate” Mark 10:9

    Phillip & Danae said I do at a beautiful private family  residence in Bakersfield, Ca. The duo met many miles away from their hometowns while serving on a missions trip in Turkey.

    Both being in the right place at the perfect time, God’s timing is always remarkable. Phillip & Danae had close family & friend witness their beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by laughter and memories at their evening reception. Their rustic outdoor wedding had so many beautiful photo opportunities as you will see featured in the blog below most of which was created by hand, amazing!

    Thank you Mr.& Mrs. Madrid for allowing us to capture your lovely wedding! We wish you a lifetime of blessings, love and health!
