embark on the arduous and challenging path of participating in wedding photography competitions.
Recognizing that mastery in photography is an ongoing journey rather than a destination marked by trophies, my participation in these competitions has been a deliberate investment in my own growth and skill development. Each competition served as a unique opportunity for me to push the boundaries of my creativity, experiment with innovative techniques, and learn from the diverse perspectives of fellow photographers.
Through this commitment to self-improvement, my goal has always been to create timeless and emotionally resonant images that transcend the limitations of conventional wedding photography.

So glad we chose Michelle and the Theiko Fos Studios team to do our engagement shoot! Our venue is so beautiful and we really wanted someone who could capture our love and the beauty of the venue at the same time.
After our engagement shoot, Jon and I were so impressed we made the decision to replace our original photographer and hire Michelle for our wedding day photographer and videographer!
It truly was the best decision we made for our wedding day!

First of all, you will get results lightening fast! I am an officiant and I’m so impressed at how quick my client got photos back in less than 24 hours after saying “I do!” I’ve done weddings domestic and internationally and I rarely ever seen photographers get results to client and their guest this fast with the exception of a celebrity situation.
I’m highly impressed with their professionalism, clean composition and ability to photograph people of color even in mood settings. They are more than qualified to capture your unforgettable occasion!

My husband had previously used Theiko Fos for his last wedding a few years back and I initially refused to use Michelle. Who wants to use the photographer that he used in my fiance's last wedding!?
So , I put my pride aside and we hired Michelle. When I tell you she is the most organized and friendly person to work with , I mean it! Everything about the process was smooth sailing and it allowed me to relax and trust that my day was going to go perfect and everything would get captured as I had dreamed.
Hire Michelle! You won’t regret it!
