About me

It’s Michele here — Michele with one L!  (After years and years of spelling my name for people, I finally decided just to trademark it. Shoutout to Mom and Dad for the name!)

I’m a Colorado wedding and portrait photographer with a few obsessions you should know about:

1. I love writing. And grammar. Yes, I’m one of those people. My alter ego is Grammar Princess. In fact, I’ve trademarked that name too! (But I’m also the worst at proofreading my own writing, so don’t worry about emailing me with any typos or grammar errors in this blog! In fact, if you do, we might become best of friends!)

2. I collect camera lenses the way some girls collect shoes. And I have recently discovered film photography, so you might see me adding a few old cameras to my collection as well.

3. I am not afraid to climb on things in public places to get the best shot. In fact, no session is really complete unless I’ve climbed on top of something. (I’ve actually had clients ask me when I’m going to start climbing on things, obviously not wanting to miss out on this crucial part of the One-L experience!)

4. I have a serious case of wanderlust. I love planning secret vacations for my family, and in fact I’ve been known to plan entire vacations based on photos I’ve seen on Instagram. (So serious is this obsession with travel that if you are planning a wedding somewhere far away and are willing to bring me with you, you may be eligible for my special destination wedding packages!)

5. Every photographer with a blog loves coffee (pretty sure that’s in the photograher-with-a-blog style guide) but I adore my Nespresso maker and a good cappuccino! (How 90’s is that? “I believe I ordered the large cappuccino. Hello?!”) And while everyone I know loves their wine, I’d much rather enjoy a local craft beer.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I’d love to get to know you! Send me a message and tell me your drink of choice — so I can treat you to one while we talk weddings!

    Hi Michele!

    I’m in the process of creating a blog…and my first choice for a name was “Michele With One L”. But you beat me to it! The funny thing is, I’m also a photographer (more lifestyle than portrait). Still learning the trade. I’m on Etsy as oneLphotography…but never listed anything. I sure buy a lot from there though! I’m also into writing and design…so a blog made sense. Being a stay-at-home-mom, I need a more structured creative outlet. And I also live in Colorado! If your Birthday is July 4th, I’m really going to freak out!! (I thought of “Independence Day Girl” but with politics the way it is today…I don’t want to be associated.)

    And I am with you on the coffee thing. I worked at Allegro, and the coffee perk was Heaven!

    Keep One-L-ing,

      Oh my goodness! That is so funny! I actually trademarked the name and it was the best business decision I’ve ever made. :) It seems to have stuck. After all those years of spelling it for people and still not having anyone remember, it’s nice to finally be able to use it in a good way! Kudos to Mom and Dad on such foresight in marketing — lol. ;) I’m not born on July 4 but I was born on Mother’s Day. Does that count?? Let’s meet for coffee sometime! It’s always good to meet all the other cool 1-Ls in the world!ReplyCancel
