Michelle Jonné is a photographer specialized in weddings, pin-up and fashion photography. She studied Liberal Arts, then Interior Architecture, and ended up getting into high-end/celebrity event design as a design assistant for Preston Bailey. Two years later she decided to do institutional research sales on Wall Street, but the financial crisis led her back to a creative field and to launch her own photography company.
Wedding photographer Michelle Jonné recently became well-known after her “Morning After” photo sessions went viral on the internet. Blogs, newspapers, magazines, and their readers cried foul and railed on her calling the genre bad for the industry. Interestingly, none of the blogs or media outlets spoke with Michelle herself about the new genre of wedding photography she created. In this Photo Brigade exclusive, Michelle responds to all the critiques and justifies her art.
