What People Are Saying

"Michele ROCKS! she is a wonderful person, so engaging and helpful but also no-nonsense. at a time when I was the most stressed-out I have ever been in my life (wedding planning!!) she made me feel calm, in control, and supported. and the best part: her beautiful photos, excellent efficiency, and top-notch customer service. the portal where our photos can be shared with our family and friends is brilliant. Michele, THANK YOU for immortalizing our special day! we will treasure your photos forever"

Libby, Los Angeles, CA

Michele is an amazing photographer with such a beautiful spirit. We hired her for our wedding day and couldn't be happier. Her pictures captured all of the special moments from that day. She was very personal and wanted to know our likes and dislikes in order to give us exactly what we wanted. She even worked with us on a pricing package that would fit within our budget. She is wonderful at what she does and you will not be disappointed.

Sola Fide Photography is so special. Michele has a gift to capture the most real part of everyone and everything that stands in front of her lens. She has a way of catching on camera the most beautiful moments you would never want to forget and makes it seem like the most effortless and fun thing ever! She was so sweet with my children and patient with me as we devoted our shoot to capturing authentic and unique portraits of my family, music, and life. Get ready to see a portrait of yourself you have never seen before and have an experience you will never forget!

Heather, Palm Springs, CA

Excellent in every way! Michele far exceeded my expectations during the photo shoot as well as the beautiful photos she produced! Michele was patient, relaxed, funny and flexible during the photo shoot. I would have to say my favorite thing about her is that she is honest if there was lipstick on my teeth, or how we were standing didn't look right. We had our pictures within a few days and we were not disappointed! Pick Michele, you won't be disappointed!

Lynette, Palm Desert, CA

All I can say is WOW! We hired Sola Fide for our engagement and wedding photos and could not be happier with our experience. Michele is professional, fun, organized, creative and incredibly talented. She also returned our photos to us super quickly. We are so thrilled with our decision to choose Sola Fide and will cherish our photos for the rest of our lives.

Great energy! Could not have been an easier or more enjoyable experience. Michele was so quick to respond to messages and easy going with plan making. A total pleasure to work with.

Mika, Bay Area, CA

Michelle is more than a unique photographer, she felt like part of our family. Taking all the time and consideration with us, our requests, our family and friends. Michelle documented our wedding perfectly and I would definitely hire her again for all our future photography needs!

Anjela, Palm Desert, CA

Sola Fide Photography did amazing work for our engagement and wedding! All of the pictures came out stunning. Michele was incredibly patient with us and came extremely prepared for each shoot (she even wrote out a schedule for the day of the wedding). I would definitely hire her again if I had the chance.

Margaret, Colorado Springs, CO

Michele did outdoor family photos for us and not only did she find an amazing location, she was great with our two toddler boys. The whole experience was really nice and the photos turned out amazing! Michelle was also quick to get our photos to us which was much appreciated. I highly recommend her.

Gwen, Indio, CA

"We love Michele!!! I booked her for large family photo shoot for my parents anniversary. She did such a great job and made my mom very happy. I would definitely hire her again and definitely refer her to my closest friends. Thank you for making the day special!!"
