With a passion for fine art & commercial photography and a love for working with and meeting new people, J. Michelle Photography seeks to encompass all of life’s amazing moments from a slightly new perspective. I love photographing weddings, engagements, and portraits because it provides me with the opportunity to visually show the love between two people and capture the true romance that reflects throughout each couple’s own unique story.

During her undergraduate studies at Maryville College, Michelle Ayers began studying photography, particularly the photography of dance.  After receiving her B.A. in Art, Ayers spent time teaching dance and photographing the lives of her dancers.  This led her to pursue her career in photography through attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. As a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Michelle received her M.F.A. in photography.  Her  fine art currently addresses ideas behind dance, particularly the dancer’s body and the ways that it is used as an instrument of beauty, transformation, and creation.
