Hi, my name is Michelle Nicole Ng. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. At an early age, I was exposed to capturing memories and developed a passion for taking snapshots of my dearest friends and family. I loved borrowing my mom's 35mm film camera to capture those memorable moments. I am the historian among all my friends and family.
I used to work in the corporate world. Three years in, I began taking workshops from Scott Robert Lim, an award winning international photographer and world renowned educator. This awakened a new determination in me. After four years in the corporate world, I decided to take a leap of faith and focus on photography full time. I’m proud to say that I am a lifetime member of Scott’s mentor program. I’ve attended his destination workshops in NYC (September 2010), China (October 2010), and Paris (March 2011), Hawaii (August 2011), Bahamas (December 2011), and Cozumel, Mexico (March 2013). My business is mostly focused on wedding, engagement, and family portraits, but I also love glamour, fashion, and other types of beauty portraiture. I am an award-winning international wedding, portrait, and glamour photographer (WPPI, 2011).
Most clients describe me as sweet, fun-loving, and a passionate entrepreneur, and my friends agree, but they might also say I can be super quirky, too! I’m passionate about photography, health/exercise (I used to do ballet for 12 years, and now I do KAYLA ITSINES' BBG and enjoy a good SOUL CYCLE ride), cooking (my latest infatuation is cooking with my ANOVA SOUS VIDE), building and maintaining friendships & relationships because the hopeless romantic inside of me yearns to help understand your story so I can capture and share your most memorable moments and milestones with the world. On special days I might indulge in a really great conversation over some good eats (food AND desserts) and how can I forget - over a really great cup of COFFEE!
Enough about me; I want to get to know you! I love learning about my clients, hearing your stories, getting to know your unique personalities, and seeing what you envision for your big day, your family, and your future. Sending my brides and grooms off with huge hugs during our post-wedding meeting is something I cherish. I also love watching families blossom year after year; it’s amazing how fast your children can grow in such little time. With all my couples, families, and clients, my ultimate goal is to get to know you, understand your style, find your beauty (inside and out), and capture you at your best.
I’d love to hear from you and have the honor of capturing your most memorable moments. I am a world traveler, so if you’re thinking of a special destination, I am always open to that!
