Get to Know Us


We're the Donnellys, owners of Michelle S. Rose Photography. We live on a hobby farm in Upstate New York, with our 4 beautiful daughters (2 of which Michelle home schools), 2 goats, a few dozen chickens, a flock of guinea hens that will greet you when you drive in, and 1 tabby cat named Tigger. Our days and hearts are very full, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Michelle started this business after completing her Bachelor of Visual Arts Degree in 2008, and has grown and adapted it as her own path has changed. 

If you're a bride looking for a Wedding Photographer, than you're in the right place! We have been serving Central New York and beyond for over a decade, and we know weddings! We will take your hand and guide you through the chaos of wedding planning, and help you create a wedding day timeline and portrait list to ensure that your day runs smoothly and effortlessly. The details you worked so hard on will be captured perfectly, and the emotions you felt on your wedding day will be relived through gorgeous images that you'll treasure for a lifetime. 

Michelle is formally trained in photography and graphic design. She brings her technical skill and creativity to every shoot and loves using natural light whenever possible to achieve bright, bold imagery. Capturing moments throughout your wedding day organically, guiding you when she needs to, and putting you at ease along the way is her specialty. With her great eye for detail, romantic nature, and years of experience, she won't miss a thing! Sit back, and relax, your wedding images are in good hands. 

Andrew is Michelle's trusted assistant and other half. His love for people and easy-going nature means he can get along with anyone, and make you feel comfortable during your session. He keeps Bridal Parties fed and hydrated, carries Michelle's gear, and is a true baby whisperer. He'll hold your cigar when the dance floor calls your name, and help your elderly Grandma to her seat. His selflessness and care make him such an asset at your session!

Together we work seamlessly, serving our clients and giving them our best. We work to build lifelong relationships with our clients, and are honored to be your family photographer! From your engagement, through wedding day, to celebrating Christmas in your first home, and the birth of your babies, we will be there to capture it all and celebrate with you! We give all of our clients the one-on-one attention you deserve, and when we're with you, you're family. 

So please have a look around, enjoy the beauty here, and drop us a line when you're ready to talk about your big day! We look forward to hearing from you!
