The photographs tell only part of the story with M. Davidson-Schapiro Photography. Here are some words from clients to give you an idea of what it’s like to work with Michelle.
SHANNON + BRYAN
Wedding location: Edge Hill Golf Course, Ashfield, MA
Shannon and Brian were married at Edge Hill Golf Course in Ashfield, Massachusetts. Edge Hill is an incredible venue, full of beauty and surprises. It's a golf course, but the grounds are so much more. Rolling hills, beautiful grasses and flowers, huge, mature trees, all in a location off the beaten path in lovely western Massachusetts. Shannon and Bryan's wedding was a nonstop love party, with family and friends and friends who are family.
Shannon said: Our wedding photos came out amazing! We have gotten so many compliments on them. I am familiar with—and a fan of—Michelle’s work, and knew that she would be the perfect fit for us. Michelle really took the time to find out what we wanted from our wedding photos while also bringing so many interesting and fun ideas of her own, giving us a lot of unique angles and poses. She shot some film in addition to digital, which gave some of our photos a totally different look and brought out the vibrant colors of the beautiful setting. Michelle was professional, accommodating and easy-going. The whole experience with her was super relaxed and so much fun—such a pleasure!
Rachel is a longtime client, with whom I've worked with on numerous projects. I photographed her beautiful wedding to husband Adam, at the Boston Harbor Hotel and The Littlest Bar, where guests enjoyed moving speeches, Irish music performed by Rachel's father and friends, and some of the best food I've had at a wedding. It was joy from beginning to end. Since then, Rachel has been hard at work coaching clients to body love through the practice of yoga, receiving her yoga teaching certification from the Kripalu Center and doing amazing work through her incredible vision: More to Love Yoga™.
"Michelle's super power is her ability to capture the essence of someone - their passion, drive, and heart - and convey it to the world. I hear often "I LOVE your photos on your website!" and that is because of Michelle's keen eye to details, her professionalism, and intuitive ability to translate my vision into gorgeous photography. I always feel relaxed and powerful during our photo sessions and love every single image she captures."

My husband and I first worked with Michelle for our engagement and wedding photos. From the beginning Michelle was warm, friendly and very engaging. She was upfront with what she offered in terms of packages and pricing and there were many options to choose from depending upon our needs for the day. Once we decided on a package Michelle was communicative throughout the entire process without being burdensome. She was always available to ask questions and would periodically check in during the planning process. We felt that she truly understood our vision for the day and listened to what we felt was important to capture and highlight and she followed through entirely. We didn’t have to wait long for the photos after the wedding and the outcome was fantastic! The photos were easy to access, share and print. We still love looking back at those pictures of one of the best days of our lives. Since then we have expanded our family and have used Michelle for family portraits and yet again, she did not disappoint! Michelle is our go-to photographer for our family and we can’t recommend her enough!

Wow! Thank you so much - these are awesome! I don't know that our day could have been captured more beautifully. Thank you for doing such an amazing job and for being such a great addition to our day! We've gone through the photos a few times and have had fun remembering details (seeing some we weren't able to witness first hand and laughing at how wonderfully goofy our families are). Looking forward to going through and picking out all of the favorites to go into an album and share with family and friends.
Thank you again. We're so grateful for these!”
