ABOUT US

Michelle Huber and her assistant photographer husband Trent (pictured above) are Twin Cities based, available for travel worldwide.

Woodbury, Minnesota native Michelle Huber has become one of the most experienced and trusted wedding photographers in the Twin Cities Metro area.  Published and highly acclaimed year after year, Michelle has been photographing weddings since 1988. With her extensive experience and educational background, Michelle collaborates with the wedding industry's most talented (both local and national) wedding vendors, stylists, videographers and make-up professionals, taking away much of the stress in planning your wedding so you can be fully present on your wedding day.  Their clients have a strong appreciation for experienced and established professionals for their wedding vendor team and put photography as a high priority when planning their weddings.

 

STYLE  Our style is Vibrant, Fun, Romantic and Candid. We are artistic, unobtrusive, documentary photographers with a background in formal portrait education and training.  Weddings are fun and full of emotion, we like to capture that!  

FAMILY  Trent and I are almost empty nesters, and luckily still madly in love with each other!  We have five children, three grandchildren, three dogs and a chinchilla. Our oldest son Andrew lives in the awesome city of Austin Texas with his wife and two kids and we visit them often, so if you are getting married there, or want a photo session there we're happy to oblige! 

COMMUNITY  Trent and I believe very passionately in giving back to community.  We donate much of our time, talent and also percentage of our income to our community and several non profit organizations that work hard towards creating a caring compassionate community for all. We feel as humans on this planet it's our duty to try to do our part to leave this place a little better than we found it!

ADVENTURE  Trent & I love to travel and find adventure together.  Whether it's canoeing or hiking on the Kinnikinnick River in Wisconsin, traveling to Europe or diving with sharks in Belize.  Most of these trips (if they are not for business) involve quality family time and/or a mission to contribute something to the community we learn about and visit.  We enjoy new challenges, experiences and adventure!

We are in very high demand and book up fast, so if you are thinking about hiring us, don't delay. Our weddings book one to two years in advance. We believe in quality over quantity, we only accept bookings for 15-17 weddings per year, so we can provide the best service and individualized attention to each of our clients, and also keep a good family and work balance.  

The three images above (of us) were taken by the wonderful and talented Melissa Hesse. Check out our BLOG or INSTAGRAM if you would like to learn more about us and our family adventures! If it turns out we are already booked on your wedding date, we are happy to share your information with one of our associates.

We only book 15-17 weddings each year so that each of our clients receive the time and attention that they deserve.  I personally photograph each and every wedding myself, and personally take care of each of our clients from the very first inquiry, to delivery of the final product.  I help guide you through the process with a simple stress free approach.

Super fast turnaround times:   This is my full time (and only) job so I am fully devoted to you!    Your wedding slideshow preview arrives in  one week or less, sometimes a day or two after the wedding if we don't have a long travel time to return from your wedding and get to work on proccessing your images!  All of your high resolution images are lovingly edited, color corrected for skin tones and light retouching and a personal use release provided.  Your custom USB drive of your images arrives in a beautiful keepsake case with a photo cover.

Please note:  We save images for one year only.  After one year, images are no longer available.  A USB or jump drive is not a recommended means of saving or archiving your images, technology fails and changes quickly.  We do recommend prints on archival quality photographic paper instead.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many images do you deliver?  A:  We believe that every moment in time is precious. We don’t delete down to a certain number of photos, we are experienced professionals, not spray and pray weekend warriors. A typical 9 hour (one day) wedding produces around 1000-1500 images, and you receive them all.  Multiple day weddings: depending on the hours per day we are there covering your event, around 1000 images per day.

Q: How many weddings do you take per year? A: Depending on the amount of travel required for each wedding and the dates that they book, we usually take around 15-17 weddings per year.  

Q: What can we expect when we hire you?  A: You can expect feeling confident that you have made one of the best decisions for your wedding and that you have a new friend who is very experienced in everything weddings to help you out with the planning process and to make you feel very comfortable being photographed!

Q: When people hire you for their destination wedding do they pay your airfare and hotel costs in addition to your fee? A: Yes they do.  Our clients recognize the value in bringing someone along that they know and trust to document their important event.  They are aware of the risk involved in hiring a resort photographer and chose to not waste money or have regrets on a photographer or experience they might not be happy with. In addition, resort photography contracts are often unclear or even non-existent, so sometimes hidden costs to obtain images are revealed later that can be a shocking aftermath.

Q: What do you mean most trusted and experienced? A: Michelle Huber has been photographing weddings since 1988, as far as we know there is no one else in the Twin Cities with that kind of experience.  95% or more of our clients find us through actual word of mouth (not advertising or social media).  This kind of true organic reach is only possible through happy real life experiences and years working hard to gain that kind of trust.  Our clients love us and trust us so much that they invite us back into their lives to photograph their births, their newborn photography, their business headshots, magazine collaborations and more. Most of our clients were either in a wedding we photographed or had a family member who used us for their wedding.  We are hired by clients who sometimes want complete privacy and we respect that.  We do not require a release to posting online or on social media.

Q: Do you have backup equipment and insurance?  Yes, we have backups on everything and if your venue requires your venders to be insured, we have more than enough coverage and can provide documentation for your venue.

Statement: Distinctive Merit  The weddings on our website are real, our followers and likes are organic.  We have been published in real magazines and have won awards and accolades with actual merit. We are not spray and pray weekend warriors.  We are professional wedding photographers-this is all we do and we do it well.
