ME          @michelleosterhoudt

I’m fond of barefeet in the grass and late night movies; belgian style beers, and my husband’s hair and infectious laugh; a foggy morning, some good ole soul music, family style diners, deep conversations, and the hope of where a new journey may take me.

Most days when I’m not shooting or editing, you will find me hanging out with my one, Ryan and our two littles. My dream came true when we decided to do this life together, and life has been an adventure ever since. After living on the west-side of Atlanta, we decided to move a little north, and take on rehabbing an old farm house together. It still keeps us busy on most occasions, and we love building a home and life together with our two kids.

I enjoy getting dressed up and feeling my best. Personal style is a large part of my self expression. But when we are not out and about you will find me outside, or making dinner, having a dance party with the littles, or tending to our free range chickens and mini farm.  I find myself continually chasing and living my dream, to satisfy my need to keep creating and growing as a professional editorial, portrait, and wedding photographer. I’m incredibly thankful to be able to call my work my passion.

MY WORK         @michellescottphoto

I consider myself a bit of a mix of a photographer. Strong documentary storytelling background, with a bit of portraiture and fine art. The perfect balance of real moments and timeless, relaxed posed pictures of the two of you. I am drawn to a strong sense of mood in my images. I embrace darkness as well as light; color, movement, adventure, real life, and raw moments. I am a painter as well as a photographer, and my creativity is always pulling me to drive the shutter. I want your images to reflect something unique and honest to you as a couple.

My work has been featured in both print and online magazines, and numerous wedding blogs with a few highlighted features including:
