Engagement Stories

Engagement sessions are SO much fun!!  Sometimes we shy away from the camera but this is a perfect time to have a little PDA with your sweetie and show it off!!  Couples in love are so much fun for me to photograph, mostly because they’re just doing what they do- loving on and enjoying each other… I love to specifically photograph couples doing activities they LOVE to do together!! There are so many unique and FUN things to do in Dallas, Ft. Worth, and all the areas surrounding!! Or we can come to YOU!!  First and foremost, you should have an engagement session done because it’s FUN. You get to pamper yourself and dress up and — here’s the best part — snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour or two.  Engagement sessions also serve as prime bonding time for you two. In fact, many of the couples I photograph tell me that their engagement shoot brought them closer together, something they didn’t think possible considering how much they were in love already. How’s that for amazing?  Think about it, though. When you’re doing intimate things such as just looking into each other’s eyes, holding your partner’s hand or resting on his shoulder in very romantic settings, it’s practically impossible not to fall more in love.
Truth: In our fast-paced world, sometimes we forget to enjoy the silence and the moment and just be together.
There are also practical reasons for an engagement session, too. For example, many people use shots from their engagement shoot for save the dates, wedding invitations and even thank you cards post-wedding.  (Psst. We can totally hook you up with those extras.)  Your engagement photographs are also great to use on your engagement website, for announcing your engagement online and for simply documenting yourself as a young and in-love couple!

Wedding Stories

Your Wedding should be everything you’ve dreamed about!! When we think about Weddings, we think about the EXPERIENCE of the day.  All of the planning and preparations don’t just take months… These are details you’ve been planning your whole life- maybe even since before you met your other half! The photographs that will be taken for your day are the moments frozen in time that you’ll look back on for years to come.  We don’t take that lightly, it is a huge responsibility–  THANK YOU for even considering us for such an honor as this!! Your Wedding should be romantic and fun, celebrating everything that you and the love of your life have built, and will build together!! We would love to work with you to ensure that your day is literally THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. Your love story is beautiful and we would be honored to help tell it with you both!  We would love to talk with you about your vision for your incredible day, but while you’re here, check out some of our work, specifically our Wedding page… and CONGRATULATIONS!!

Boudoir & Glamour Stories

Are you CELEBRATING a change?! Maybe you’re embracing a new season of life, rocking a new color in your hair, just kicked it into high gear and lost some weight, or maybe you just did some soul searching and fell in love with yourself again… Glamour & Boudoir is for YOU.  Or maybe you NEED to love yourself for the first time EVER… Glamour & Boudoir is for YOU.  What we absolutely LOVE about these genres, is that it honors and encourages women- with themselves!! We can guarantee that you’ll leave your session encouraged, invigorated, CONFIDENT and lovely.  Our studio prides itself in our professionalism, attention to detail and the ability to make you feel absolutely at ease throughout your session. Past clients have expressed to us that they were nervous — naturally! — at the beginning, but warmed up quickly. We laugh, we get serious, we have fun. And we promise you this: you’ll walk away not only feeling more confident in your own skin, but absolutely beautiful. Some of the details you need to know about our Boudoir and Glamour Photography packages will be right here on these pages. We’ll help guide you through the entire process from make up to hair, wardrobe, and even how to help you relax and enjoy yourself during your photoshoot!  Since 2013, Ley Michelle has worked with all sorts of women at various stages of their life. We do lots of Bridal Boudoir Photography, as soon-to-be-married women find photos of themselves a particularly thoughtful gift for their other half. (and if we’re photographing your Wedding too, you’ll have a photo of when your husband to be receives your gift!) That’s just the beginning, though. In the past, we’ve done Boudoir and Glamour Photography for women celebrating their new figures, women who want to give a special birthday or Christmas gift to their partners, and women who simply feel beautiful and sexy and want to relish in that.  There’s a fine line between the two styles of Boudoir and Glamour but the overall feel of the session is very similar.  It’s all about alluring the camera and expressing your inner confidence. For this reason, you may often see the two styles marketed as one style.

Your Photographer’s Story

Ley Michelle Photography

I am inspired by LOVE!!  I am passionate about telling stories. I live my life like an open book and if you asked me about myself, you might say I should WRITE a book too! I’ll be sharing my story on YouTube if you’d like to take a peek. It’s a pretty crazy story.  My handsome husband and I have been married since 2004. We have 3 super adorable kids that have been my sidekicks since they were born! Two strapping boys who love football and Pokemon, and one baby girl who’s just all about the glitter and the pink! We love to travel, explore and enjoy experiences together as a family, and we get to do that quite a bit because we homeschool. We’re on our 5th year of schooling at home and still having a blast! (Also that depends on the day, cause it’s a labor of love and takes a LOT lol) My FAVORITE thing EVER is going on a CRUISE!  Actually, I met my husband on a cruise! (Yes, seriously.)  We honeymooned on a cruise. We celebrated our first Anniversary on a cruise. (You get the idea. There were many more cruises lol) And I was also able to take just the kids on a cruise too! We had a blast!  In 2015, we packed up and moved across the country from Orlando, Florida to the Dallas Fort Worth, Texas Metroplex.  You could say that we don’t shy away from Adventure! I’m a Re-Texan (it’s a thing) after having moved to Florida from San Antonio, Texas, where I grew up and attended college.  I studied Film and Photojournalism there and that’s served me well along my journey! I’ve been a Photographer for a total of 15 years, but I’ve been in business as a Professional Photographer since 2013.  I have a wide range of experience photographing all different aspects of Photography, but I absolutely ADORE the genres I specialize in! I love Weddings the most! I never got to have one with my husband- we eloped at the courthouse!  Actually, we ran away in secret so there are NO photographs of the day we got married- it’s the ONE thing about that day that I do regret!  I LOVE being a part of a couple’s day as they celebrate their new life together and I LOVE making sure that there are incredible photographs for them to always look back on!!

So… as you can see a CRUISE WEDDING experience would absolutely be ALL my dreams colliding, so if you’re planning one of those– please oh please, I’m your gal! 😉

This is exactly what I was talking about- see I just wrote you a novel and I didn’t even scratch the surface!! When you meet me in person, you’ll find that there’s hardly a lull in the conversation, and my WHOLE goal is to get you to laugh…. a lot. We have fun!  I can’t wait to meet you, and hear about YOU!!
