Love Letters from our Couples

“WOW! WOW! and WOW! Absolutely beautiful! What an excellent job you did! I love ALL the pictures!… I can’t even express how thankful we are to you for capturing our wedding. You did not miss anything :)”

“Not only are Michelle’s photos stunning, her talent and professionalism are matched by her energy and personality… She lets you be yourself. Her joking and friendliness made us so relaxed that the smiles and laughter in our photos didn’t look forced or overly-posed, but were completely natural.”

“I cannot say enough good things about Captured Soul Photography and Michelle who photographed our wedding beautifully. We had our wedding in Montreal and got the full-day package; we did our bridal party photos in the morning and then had the ceremony and reception in the afternoon/evening. Michelle took the initiative of visiting the city a few days before to familiarize herself with the locations we had picked for our group portraits and venues. She was immediately knowledgeable about permit requirements, construction work, etc. Basically, things one doesn’t really notice or pay attention to when you’re planning a gazillion other details.

Michelle was super flexible the whole time and it was a breeze to coordinate with her all the meeting points. The day of the wedding she was super fun and energetic throughout the whole day. Nothing phased her, not even my groom’s goofy cousins trying to prank her 😉 She kept an amazing attitude the whole time, and even saved my hair from falling apart. She definitely added to the whole experience. I think another important point to make is that we barely noticed her during the reception, but she managed to capture so many precious moments. I absolutely love her spontaneous style of photography, and would recommend her to everybody!”

“Michelle did a great job capturing our wedding and was a fun addition to the day. She was full of enthusiasm but let the day flow just how we had imagined. She was never in the way, but always got the right shots. We are so glad that we found her and will be recommending her services to any friends getting married in the future. Thank you so much, Michelle, for all your hard work, we so appreciate it.
One word of advice for future brides: We met with Michelle a year in advance for an engagement shoot. This gave us the opportunity to get to know her and her style of photography. It also gave us the chance to practice and become comfortable with being photographed. When the wedding day arrived, we already knew that Michelle was going to take pictures of both the natural and the posed elements of our day and that she would be encouraging us to just be ourselves and have fun. We were so glad that we had “practiced” before so that we weren’t stressing over how to act in the photographs on our wedding day and could really embrace her idea to “be yourselves”. Thanks Michelle!”

“Our wedding day was most certainly a day to remember, and if we could, we would relive it over and over again.  Apart from doing so, we have the second best option available all of the time – the photos.  We cannot express how thankful we are to Michelle and Lindsay at Captured Soul Photography for investing their time, energy and talent into our wedding.  We are so thrilled with the photos and know that as time goes by and memories fade, we will always have the beautiful and priceless photos to help us remember the special moments, family members and friends that made our special day so important.  Also tucked into our back pockets, we have some hilarious photos our family and friends – you never know when they will come in handy. And if a guest at our wedding is looking to create a dating profile on a website about a body of water and its inhabitants, we just may have a photo for that too!”

“We have just finished viewing the wedding photos and we are so happy to see the result. They are beautiful. You managed to capture so many wonderful aspects of the day and evening, it all went by too quickly but thanks to your photos we will be able to relive the experience over and over. Many many thanks and keep up the fabulous work.”
–Mother of the Groom (Milu & Adriano)

“Michelle did such an amazing job on our wedding photos (and our engagement photos). She captured so many great little moments throughout the day that we forgot about until looking at our photos. After all the emotions and everything going on the day of the wedding, it was so great to be able to sit down and enjoy the entire day all over again…. and still get some butterflies!!  Michelle is also such a great friend throughout the planning process and on the big day. She’s great at getting back to you if there was any little question or concern you had. She makes it hard to pick a favorite photo! I hope there is another occasion in the future that we can work with Captured Soul Photography again!”

“Michelle, I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you did on our wedding day. Everyone kept commenting on how professional but fun and creative you were! Not to mention fearless (climbing up rock walls to get a great shot!) You can really tell that you love what you do… We’re so happy with everything that you’ve done, and people have still not stopped talking about how many pictures you took and how you got right in there to take pics… Thank you again,”

“Thank you once again for doing such a fabulous job at our wedding. I don’t know what we would have done without you. It was great to have you as part of our special day/week… We are all thrilled with [the photos]. All the candid shots you got of everyone are great! And the wedding photos are awesome… You really captured not just the wedding but the whole vacation and all of the important people who came with us that made the whole experience so special. Thanks so much!”

“I first encountered Michelle at a bridal show, where upon seeing some of her unbelievable wedding photos I had a feeling she was the wedding photographer I had been searching for. As soon as I met her, I knew she was the perfect person to capture our wedding.  As someone who has always felt a bit uncomfortable in front of a camera, I decided to book an engagement session as a practice for the big day. Michelle’s humour, warmth, encouragement, and creativity made the whole experience fun. We could not have been happier with the photos and have received so many compliments from family and friends… If you are looking for a photographer who is incredibly talented and instantly puts you at ease with her warmth and humour, Michelle is your girl!”

“Michelle’s (as well as the rest of her colleagues at Captured Soul Photography) professionalism and talent with a camera are nothing to scoff about. Our wedding was one that had to be dramatically changed due to outside forces, but her flexibility and quality of her work didn’t suffer one bit. We couldn’t have asked for a more competent and fantastic photographer for our wedding, and we would heartily recommend her to anyone that we know. There is a reason why Michelle and Captured Soul Photography are well sought after, and we were honoured to have them capture our wedding.”

“Oh my gosh, the photos are AMAZING!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I am so very happy with your work, from keeping it simple in organizing the day to your comfort with each of us to the quality of the photos you capture and edit.  You are brilliant!  And I love working with you, thank you again!”

“My highschool sweetheart and I got married last year. That said, there were 20 years between highschool and us getting married, 18 of which were spent not even knowing where each other was is the world.
4 children, 2 on each side, with past partners and a lot of life under the bridge brought us to the altar together.  Michelle took into account our crazy lives and our odd mix off traditional and “out-there” wedding ideas and created something truly magical for us to remember the day by. I will never forget the love and care she put into our special day.  It would not have been the same without her.”

“Thanks so much Michelle!  We’ve received everything and cannot thank you enough for all of your talent and hard work!  The photography was by far the most important aspect of the wedding to us and we could not be happier with your work!…We had an absolute blast and you are brilliant at what you do!  You make everyone feel so comfortable and you make everything so much fun!… Absolutely stunning!”

“We are so impressed with the quality of all the pictures you took and editing done and just everything! Thank you very deeply to you and Lindsay for capturing our day so vividly. The pictures are full of life and emotion and I’ll always be proud to display them. I simply adore all the black and white options, and I am excited to go online and order some prints with the metallic finish option. Wedding photos were a big worry for me pre-event, so I can gratefully say that I am in awe of how well they turned out! I get compliments all the time of how beautiful everything was and what a wonderful day everyone had and you were a big part of that. We really thought it was so great that at the end of the night you joined us in our party, too; that’s exactly the kind of event and “togetherness” I was hoping for! Joe and I both hope to work with you again for some of our future events…
I would, and plan on in the future, contacting the ladies again for more photo shoots. It was a fabulous experience for everyone and the results are quite impressive. Thankyou Michelle and Lindsay!!!”

“Lindsay, our photos are absolutely fantastic! You did an amazing job of capturing the unpredictable moments, the funny moments and the ‘forever’ moments. We’re truly thankful that you were part of our wedding day.”


“Thank you Lindsay, we love our pictures. We got many complements. Thank you for making our memories so beautiful!!!”

“Michelle made planning my wedding from New Zealand so easy and stress free. Once meeting her in person I knew we had made the perfect choice. She made the day fun and playful and fit right in with everyone… We had the most wonderful day and thanks to the amazing photos by Captured Soul Photography we are able to re-live those moments anytime we like! Michelle captured so many beautiful moments and was so much fun to work with. She gave me two great gifts that day – the most stunning wedding photos that we will cherish forever and unknowingly captured the precious moments I shared with my Grandfather for the last time before he passed away a few months later. I can never thank her enough for that…I highly recommend Capture Soul to anyone looking for the perfect photographer!”

“Time for a little brag about one of our most favourite people in the world…oh yah…and she happens to be the most wonderfully talented photographer we’ve ever met and worked with, too.
I first met Michelle over 5 years ago when she was the photographer at my MOH’s wedding. Not only were the pictures absolutely stunning – yes, they are still hanging in our homes – but my memories are filled with this hilarious lady (Michelle) who made everyone so comfortable, from the bride and groom all the way back to that guy nobody quite knew sitting in the back row. So of course when my husband and I were first engaged, aside from being on cloud nine, my next thought was – we HAVE to get Michelle from Captured Soul Photography. We’ll base the date around her availability.
Let me tell you – it was a WIN.
I highly recommend starting with an engagement session – Michelle patiently taught us (let’s face it, mostly taught my groom-to-be) how to smile, relax, and to be natural but suave…and as an added bonus we have never laughed so much for so long in our lives whilst doing it. When we look at the pictures (I am still trying to dwindle down the hundred or so favourites), we can’t help but smile remembering the laughter and that fabulous day!
Finally, on our wedding day, Michelle was there from morning till night capturing those moments that will bring us back when we are old and gray. We felt comfortable, we looked amazing and even our emotional little flower girl sparkled for Michelle and her camera.
If you haven’t booked yet, look no further! If you hire Michelle, it’ll be the most stress-free and fabulous decision you’ll make for your wedding!”

“Where to start when describing Michelle and Captured Soul Photography? Michelle is very professional, personable, and is able to make you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. She is creative and not afraid to do whatever or go wherever to get the perfect shot. We were provided with a wide array of photos, which included moments we had missed during the reception. The proof book is gorgeous and a great way to share all of our photos. I get goosebumps every time I look at our photos. We are so happy we had Michelle capture our special day.”

“Michelle is amazing! Not only is she a talented photographer, but she is so helpful with all the other planning aspects involved with a wedding. She is also very fun and easy to work with. When we received our pictures we were blown away! She was able to capture so many special moments and raw emotions and I am so grateful that I will always have the pictures to look at to remember how I was feeling on my wedding day. She has the rare ability to get people to relax and have fun while getting their pictures taken. She was definitely the best investment we made in our wedding.  If you get the chance to hire her, don’t think twice, just do it. You will be thanking yourself later.”

“Michelle was…there are no words to describe her. Her work on its own speaks for itself. She made our wedding day look like the perfect day that I had planned for and thought of my whole life, a reality. When I look back at these beautiful pictures today,… I remember the positives. The happy moments. The smiles, the hugs, the kisses and the good company I was in. The love that I felt from everyone, especially my new ‘official’ family, will live on in these pictures forever. The best decision I ever made about the wedding, aside from saying “YES!” to the man of my dreams, was to have Captured Soul Photography capture each of the souls that was with us… So thank you, Michelle, for your great company, bubbly personality and ‘hard’ work (wink-wink) throughout not only our wedding day, but for the entire vacation week. You truly added to the experience and I would have you do it all over again in a heart beat.”

“Marc and I would just like to thank you soooo much for joining us, and photographing our wedding week! We hope you had a good time. We heard only great and wonderful things about you throughout the trip. You were a pleasure to hang with, happy to help out, and very motivating for photos! Everyone enjoyed getting to know you! … I think we have received everything – downloaded the files, received the CDs and received the book (which is uber-awesome!). We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE all the photos!! Everywhere we go people who have seen the images on Facebook talk about how fantastic our photos are and ask who our photographer is 🙂 … Thanks again for everything!”

“Luc and Tania, I don’t know how many time I’ve said this but we are just so lucky to have you guys! We will definitely recommend you guys to other friends.”

“Jordan and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us during our wedding week and in the time leading up to it. You were way more than we could have ever asked for and you were absolutely fabulous. You helped us and our group in more ways than we could have imagined. We hope you had a great time with us and our wedding group. We can not thank you enough, Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”

Captured Soul Photography went above and beyond to make our wedding photos so spectacular!! Best pictures we have ever had done of the two of us! They are so flexible with any ideas you have and are willing to work with anything. Made our day so stress free, especially when your timely itinerary goes out the window and I (the bride) started to get a little nervous, Michelle put me at ease by saying we have lots of time to get what you want done… and sure enough we were at the reception exactly on schedule!! You will not regret hiring Captured Soul Photography: the uniqueness, the quality, the colours… AMAZING

“Lindsay did an absolute fantastic job shooting our wedding and she accompanied us on an excursion with our group to shoot some fun, memorable moments! She fit right in with our group and we had a blast with her. We are very happy with our photos and couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. She went above and beyond to capture our wedding day. We would recommend her to any destination wedding bride.”

“Captured Soul Photography was absolutely fantastic. I have been many places where there are photographers that are capturing the shots, and the smiles start to have this awkward look. NONE of our photos are like that. Michelle was so quick to catch those looks before they were on camera, and would find a way to break things up.

Looking back at the pictures now I couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Captured Soul. Not only did she make sure that we had wonderful photos, she helped us with suggestions, for cake, flowers, and anything else we had questions about. Even though we had a simple wedding she didn’t miss any of those details in the photos, and we are able to look back at the photos and smile and laugh about the day.

I would definitely recommend booking with Captured Soul!”

“The best decision we ever made was hiring Captured Soul Photography for the job. Where to even begin to describe the service we got from Michelle? Michelle was everything for us. She was not only our wedding photographer but also our wedding coordinator and organizer. Most of all, she was a friend we could lean on if we ever needed questions answered. With her experience and the amount of destination weddings she shot, we knew we had the right person for the job…

Michelle was amazing. We had a group of 34 people at our wedding. She took charge of the wedding, coordinating people, pictures and placing. She also did our wedding rehearsal with us. Showed us how to walk down the isle, as well as placements of groomsmen and bridesmates. While we enjoyed the resort days before the wedding, Michelle was scouting beautiful places at the resort where to take pictures for our wedding… She fit in with our guests and we felt like she was one of our own while shooting our wedding…

I think the photos and her work speaks for itself! Over all experience was everything we expected and more.”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michelle Kauntz of Captured Soul Photography. She was always very helpful and prompt in answering any questions I had leading up to the wedding date. On the wedding day, Michelle mixed very well with the wedding party, making the entire process a blast. Even the groom, who hates to have his picture taken, totally enjoyed the experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. The final pictures are stunning, showcasing her artistic talent in not only taking the pictures but also processing them. Not only am I blown away by her photos but so is every person I have shared my wedding photos with.”

“Michelle becomes part of your family even before she takes out her camera. Michelle[‘s photography] was a wedding gift to me. She was the best present ever!!!! She was funny, energetic, and full of interesting ideas…. We had a small wedding in the comfort of my parents’ home. Although, when you look at my pictures, we were in an extravagant hall surrounded by family and friends. Michelle captured that day minute by minute without skipping a beat. I recommend her to everyone and I still look at my photos on a regular basis. She also did a family photoshoot for me last fall and I loved all of the photos. She is an asset to any wedding. I love you Michelle!!!!!!”

“Michelle is all-around fabulous. She fits right in with the family, mingles with the guests, and acts as an addition to (rather than disruption of) the day’s proceedings. Her photos have a very natural feel, and she has a talent for catching people mid-laughter, and for making the small moments seem magical. If you’re thinking about booking Captured Soul as your wedding photographer, stop thinking NOW – find out if she is available, and just do it!!”

“It has to be said: The photos are spectacular!!! We can’t believe how beautifully they turned out. All this time I thought the camera would show we had no idea what we were doing, but you really put us at ease and made it not only simple for us, but so much fun.
I’m so giddy that I’m really at a loss for words, but I had to let you know how incredibly pleased we are with the work that you’ve done. You’ve given us such a gift with the images you’ve captured, I know we will look back at them for years to come with such great joy, remembering that day, the silliness, the love and our amazing, easy going, fun photographer who knew in her heart exactly how to capture the beauty in simplicity and convey through images the love we share. We are so very lucky to have you be such a big part of our big day, and we can’t wait to see you again. You are a gem, Michelle. For lack of a better word…thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for not only capturing pictures but also memories, for a fantastic day, gorgeous photographs that truly encapsulate the essence of us, and agreeing… to document this heartfelt event for us. I know you must hear it all the time, but you are unbelievably talented. You have such a gift of capturing images which tell a story so profoundly, it amazes me. Your professionalism and artistic eye are unparalleled. We just can’t put into words the smiles you’ve brought to our faces.
… Just wanted to add that we had such a great time with you. It really helped to loosen us up and become comfortable to be in front of the lens as opposed to being behind it taking the shots. We love your fun, upbeat personality, you made us laugh so much … [and] had so many great ideas for photo ops and angles… Really happy that we will have you sharing and documenting our special day “

“Michelle is all-around fabulous. She fits right in with the family, mingles with the guests, and acts as an addition to (rather than disruption of) the day’s proceedings. Her photos have a very natural feel, and she has a talent for catching people mid-laughter, and for making the small moments seem magical. If you’re thinking about booking Captured Soul as your wedding photographer, stop thinking NOW – find out if she is available, and just do it!!”

“I just wanted to say thank you again – for everything!! – helping with coordination and organization of the crowds, the set up and just keeping things on track, seriously going above and beyond to make sure the day went smoothly and you could capture what you needed…You are second to none in your craft, and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else shoot our special day.

Thanks again for being you!”

“We had Michelle capture our wedding… We were married just outside of Grand Bend, Ontario. I will never forget the image of Michelle wading out into the lake up to her thighs to get the picture. I must also say the water was quite chilly that day. Not only did she capture our day wonderfully she is also a perfectionist when it comes to finishing the photos. [I’m] in love my wedding photos and the wonderful shots that Michelle took. She truly captured us. A year later to the day we were able to do a wonderful love the dress shoot. Michelle is truly personable and easy going. We were blessed to have her be part of our day.”

“Michelle of Captured Soul Photography ended up being our best asset in planning, executing and capturing our destination wedding.  I often joke that I’m missing the bride gene.  I felt overwhelmed and lost when my finance and I started the wedding planning process.  After speaking with several travel agents, going to several wedding shows, and hours of online research I stumbled on Michelle.  Michelle agreed to wait around a little later than she originally planned at a bridal show in my hometown to meet up with me around my work schedule.  Looking back, our entire wedding planning journey made a MAJOR shift after that casual 20 minute chat with Michelle.  Michelle is a destination wedding Pro, I’d call her a guru of all things destination wedding.  Michelle has a calming presence (that even worked on me, I’m a tad type A).  She offered input and shared her experiences with us, as we needed it every step of the way.  From choosing our travel agent, to deciding on flowers and favours, Michelle’s help was invaluable.   Michelle is a gifted photographer that brought out the best in us and our whole group.  Finding someone so talented, with such a comforting and welcoming spirit, who is also a fabulous destination wedding planner was like hitting the jackpot for us.  I tell everyone that if I could only give one piece of wedding planning advice it would be to hire Michelle as your photographer.  Our wedding photo’s captured our relationship with each other as a couple, with our wedding party, and will always remind us of how carefree and fun our day was. “

“Michelle seemed to ‘get us’ as a couple and offered exactly what we wanted in her packages. We opted to have an engagement shoot before the wedding, which was great because it gave us a chance to get a feel for the way she likes to work, and got us comfortable in front of the camera. She encouraged us to be silly and to try things, which resulted in some amazing photos to display at our wedding.
Having Michelle at our wedding was like having a very talented friend who happened to be taking a bunch of pictures of you throughout the day. She ran with every idea that we threw at her (even the wacky ones) and had brilliant plans of her own. The photos came out beautifully, they were exactly what we wanted and two years later, we still look at them all the time. We really liked the detail shots she took of the venue, the flowers, the food and the accessories, and the moments she captured throughout the day. We love the way that our day looks through Michelle’s lens.
The very best thing about working with Michelle is that even if you don’t have the words to describe exactly what you want, she just seems to understand. She knows just what to do and where to be so that you end up with the perfect shot. We wholeheartedly recommend Captured Soul  –  Thanks Michelle!”

“We are so happy with Michelle and her work just proves how great she is at capturing those very intimate moments. Hiring Michelle to capture our wedding week was the best decision we made. I was such a detailed bride but when it came to pictures I didn’t have to worry about listing off everything I wanted a picture of. Michelle just read me well and knew what was important to me. The best part of Michelle is that she makes you feel so comfortable with the camera. She made us look great in every single picture. My husband and I are not the photo taking couple but I can’t stop showing off my pictures to my family and friends. We are so proud of her hard work and are very fortunate to have found and hired her to capture our memories… Thanks, Michelle, for giving us beautiful memories. Every time we look at them its like falling in love all over again!”

“Michelle was absolutely amazing on, before and after our wedding day. With helpful advice, she took the worries away. She was very professional and responsive… She was quick to respond to my questions and she was also very professional. She is passionate about her job and it shows through the pictures she takes. What sets her apart from other photographers is she captures the candid moments which are the most memorable and show the true emotion. She was energetic, motivating and creative.”

“First of all, we just want to say that we had so much fun with the two of you on our engagement session. I shared some of the engagement photos on the dreaded Facebook and its been incredible the comments from our friends and family. Several of them are photographers themselves! One person even said how talented our photographer was! Of course we knew this…that’s why we hired you! Lol. Thanks again and can’t wait to see the rest.”

“I really wanted good pictures with a sort of ‘photojournalistic’ style and Michelle did not disappoint!  She was also super fun to hang out with and fit into our group perfectly.  I would highly recommend her to anyone… [Michelle], you are the BEST!!! Oh my gosh!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!… I have gone through all of the pictures and they are AMAZING. You are an artist!”

“I saw Michelle’s company name – Captured Soul – online and was instantly intrigued.  After looking through almost every photo on her website (trust me, her photographs are addictive once you start looking), you could just tell that Michelle does more than take photos; she captures the emotion; the ambiance; the soul!  Michelle’s talent does not stop at photography; her helpful advice, encouragement, relaxed demeanour, and warmth all added to our wonderful experience.  My husband and I are not very outgoing or camera-friendly, but Michelle worked her magic on us and we have more amazing pictures than I could have dreamed of!  We can now relive every moment of our destination wedding/vacation through our beautiful photos… thanks Michelle!”

“I spent hours looking through different photographer’s on-line albums to find the perfect photographer to capture our unique style and creative edge in our engagement & wedding photos. When I stumbled on Captured Soul Photography, I knew I had found the one! I loved Michelle’s creative style and artistic eye for capturing unique and fun shots, I couldn’t find a single photo in her albums that I did not like… Michelle made us feel like we were hanging out with an old friend and we had a blast! And the photos!! They turned out amazing! I was floored by how Michelle was truly able to capture the all the special moments we had that day from a simple glance to a romantic kiss…….allowing us to see in print all those everyday little things that we love about each other… I would never use any other photographer!!!”

“I looked online for a photographer that had a very realistic and fun style.  ‘Captured Soul’ could not describe Michelle’s style more.  I called her after I looked at her portfolio online and it was instant love.  She was so helpful and answered many questions about travelling and new places to explore.  She is amazing and overly exceeded my expectations.  She is very knowledgeable and she knows how to direct a huge wedding crowd in a great manner.  I have booked Michelle for a follow up family shoot, and one of my bridesmaids booked her for their wedding!  As I have my own wedding planning business, I recommend her to all my destination brides!  She is my first choice always.”

“Michelle is the most amazing person and photographer. She was recommended to us by our travel agent and within minutes of meeting her we knew she was coming to our destination wedding. She is the easiest person to get along with and you feel like you’ve know her for years. We knew she was amazing but when we got pictures from the wedding it was like we were reliving it all over again. She is an absolutely amazing photographer and captured every moment into beautiful memories.
Because of Michelle, Mike and I will not only have these beautiful photos to remember our special day, but the rest of the week as well! Mike and I want to thank Michelle so much because she helped our wedding day run like a dream! We are so thankful you came to Jamaica with us and became part of our family!”

“Captured Soul Photography was my FIRST priority for my wedding day! I called Michelle before I called the venue when we were thinking about wedding dates, and I was prepared to schedule my wedding around Michelle’s availability. Michelle goes above and beyond the call of duty, helping out in every way she can (both during and before the wedding). Her work is at once modern and timeless, and she’s a heckuva lot of fun to have around! I highly recommend Captured Soul Photography for your special day – why trust your memories to anyone else?”

“Pictures have always meant the world to us. Finding the right photographer was going to be our biggest challenge for our wedding, because we wanted it to be the perfect capture of our day. From seeing one single picture, I knew Michelle – Captured Soul Photography – would be just what we wanted. Her single picture of a couple on a cruise boat, with the sunrise behind them told us that she would capture our love story on our wedding day, that we could show to people years to come….. and that is exactly what she did. Her pictures not only capture still moments, but a story. Pictures are worth a thousand words they say – but only if you find the right person behind the camera. Michelle, you brought our fairy tale love story to life with your amazing talent, your art, your passion, and vision. I don’t know how you do it, but I’m glad you did… We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us in Mexico and capturing all of our special moments.  You truly are one of a kind, Michelle!”

“I just wanted to thank you so much for the tremendous job you did photographing our wedding. We were so impressed by the amount of time and energy you put ino your work. So many people have commented on how amazing the shots were for our engagmement photos and about how wonderful it was that you stayed so late at our wedding photographing the reception. Having pictures of our guests enjoying the reception, in addition to our wedding photos, means a great deal to me to have. We thank you so much for a job very well done … [and] for all the hard work you did processing our pictures. They are beautiful! … I know we will spend countless hours pouring over all the details you captured and reminising about the most wonderful day of our lives! … Thank you for everything!!!”

“After deciding to get married at a resort in Central America… we found Michelle who specialized in destination weddings and luckily, she was available to come to Panama for our big day.
As a bride, I was a little apprehensive about the photos because I’m not someone who enjoys being in front of the camera. I was a little nervous that I’d be uncomfortable having all of the pictures taken of me. Michelle was absolutely perfect for someone like myself. I felt 100% comfortable with her taking pictures. She was a true professional. When we look back at our pictures, it brings us back to that amazing week we spent with friends and family. Michelle captured the entire week better than we could have imagined. Another nice surprise was that although we started the week with Michelle barely knowing her, we ended the week as friends. She fit in with the group very nicely, to the point that she still keeps in touch with us and some of my friends and family.  Michelle is very talented and just an all-around wonderful person.  I’d recommend her to anyone.”

“We just wanted to write you and tell you how AMAZING our photos are!… The quality of your work is unquestionable…  We can’t tell you enough how much these photos mean to us.  You did such an amazing job capturing the moments and feelings of that day, and what we both mean to each other… There are no words to describe the gift you have given us. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough, but thank you a million times over!!”

“We were lucky enough to have both Michelle and Luc from Captured Soul Photography capture our wedding. They were fantastic! Michelle convinced me to do a trash the dress shoot, and I am so glad we did, they are our favourite pictures of the bunch. We dragged Michelle up cliffs, through woods, and into the water and she was totally game for all of it. We had a few camera-shy people in the wedding party, but Michelle and Luc did a great job of getting natural smiles out of everyone. Michelle also is a certified wedding planner and made some awesome recommendations for the wedding planning process as well. Thanks Michelle and team!”

“Michelle Kauntz of Captured Soul Photography was an absolute dream to work with. She has a wonderful personality and felt more like a guest than a vendor at our wedding. Our family and friends adored her and her professionalism was terrific. She got to know each member of the bridal party not just the bride and groom. Her photos were beautiful with vibrant colors, variation and the clarity was unbelievable. She really listened to what types of pictures we wanted and when the groomsmen decided to shake things up a bit and drop their tux pants she wasn’t at all afraid (lol) I would reccomend her services to anyone looking to capture that special occasion.”

“Michelle captured everything that my husband and I asked for and so much more! She was absolutely amazing! Our pictures are even more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed! We look at them and we feel like we are back in time at our wedding week! She has amazing talent! She has great control of our wedding group when taking our Beach Day shots! Everyone loved her! These pictures will bring back amazing memories for many years to come. Thank you Michelle for all your hard work!”

“I can’t thank you enough for capturing the most wonderful moments from our wedding day!  Photos have always been important to me and from the moment I saw your website for the first time I was hooked and needed to have you there for my wedding… We are so glad we decided to hire you as our photographer… You made our wedding day even more special and memorable… Thank you so much Michelle!”

We’ll go practically anywhere in the world to capture your dream, your life, and your love.
