Sustad Photography

(218) 478-4129

Many people ask me what I like about being a wedding photographer. Sure, I love the art aspect - playing with light, angles, and the given surroundings. Yes, I enjoy bringing the images to life through personally editing each and every image my clients receive. However, what energizes me are the interactions I have with my clients and their friends and family on the wedding day. Talent is only part of the job; the other most important aspect of being a great photographer is being able to connect with the people you are working with. This is why my wedding package includes an engagement session, so that I can get to know my couples' personalities and they can get to know me!

Did you know that your wedding photographer is with you longer than any other vendor at your wedding? Because of this, it's really important to pick a photographer that not only matches with your style, but also someone you feel comfortable hanging out with. Most of my bookings come from people who were in previous weddings I photographed, not just because they liked the finished product their loved ones received, but also because they enjoyed their time with me as the photographer. 

I do travel for weddings! Whether by car or plane, I've had the chance to travel to clients from all over!

I'd love to chat with you and discuss how much fun we can have capturing your personalities as a couple and your wedding day memories!

Michaela is a wonderful photographer to work with! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t have asked for better! Her ideas for pictures were amazing. We absolutely loved working with Michaela and loved our pictures. We would recommend her to anyone!

Michaela was amazing to work with. We did both our engagement photos and wedding photos with her. She was so personable and easy to work with. She had great ideas for pictures, and she really let my husband's and my own personality stand out in the photos. She took my wants into consideration and made my ideas into amazing detailed photos! Michaela was willing to travel to our wedding, and she started pictures at around 8:00 am and finished with photos at 8:00 pm. She never once complained that the day was getting to be long despite the 93 degree weather in May. She always had a smile on her face. I definitely recommend using Sustad Photography for any future photo shoots. We will be contacting her to do many more photos in the future!!

My husband and I were so lucky to have been able to book Michaela for our wedding! She happened to have something fall through for our wedding date so she was able to photograph our special day. I had met her at two of my friends’ weddings and not only loved her for her personality, but her photographs were absolutely fantastic. She is wonderful to work with, making us feel so incredibly comfortable and like we had known each other for years. We took our engagement pictures first, where she let us take over and choose how we wanted the session to go, all while taking the most breathtaking photos. Our wedding pictures were just as beautiful and she captured our day even better than I thought possible. I would highly recommend her to everyone! She is wonderful!

I had my first experience with Michaela as a bridesmaid at a friends wedding. She made everyone feel so comfortable and was so down to earth. Her pictures were also gorgeous! I knew I had to have her for my wedding one day! She did not let us down. Our engagement pictures included our daughter. She captured our little family perfectly. Our wedding day was no different. She was so patient and accommodating. We were more than pleased with how everything turned out, not to mention how fast we received our photos. I would recommend to anyone and will definitely use her in the future!

My husband and I booked with Michaela as our wedding photographer after seeing her at a wedding vendor show. A wedding photographer, to us, was one of the most important things for us to have for our wedding day. We did our engagement pictures with her, and she was SO fun, so happy to be with us and more than willing to do whatever she could to accomodate to what we wanted. Not only were we more than pleased with her work, she was so incredibly fast (2-3 days fast) with getting our edited pictures back to us! And they were AMAZING. Our wedding day was captured just the way we wanted, and we have recommended her to all of our friends and families!
