Michele Coleman is an artist who loves to photograph people in an artistic and inspiring way. She believes that photography is the best way to remember the important people in our lives and the fleeting moments that occur each and every day. Michele has worked hard to develop a consistent style, so that prospective clients can get a good idea of what to expect and how she will handle their specific project.
Michele discovered her love of photography while in college studying Journalism and Graphic Design. After years of doing photography on the side, Michele opened a portrait studio in 2007 in her home state of West Virginia and made her passion a full time career. Her love for design, color, and art translated well into her portrait and wedding work, and Michele quickly became one of the most sought after photographers in her area.
For over 10 years, Michele has documented people's lives and special events. She sees it as an honor to help create lasting images for families who connect with her style, which can be described as unique and consistent, artistic and heart- felt.
Michele's love for the coastal South Carolina region has recently led her to relocate her business to the Myrtle Beach area. Her new studio location is in Murrells Inlet, just a few miles from the beautiful Marsh Walk and Huntington Beach State Park.
