  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to Michele Schanker Photography!

    We are a modern and contemporary photography studio based in Thornton, CO. However we serve most of the Northern Denver Metro area including Boulder.

    We specialize in kids and infant portraits. But we are also available for your wedding, family, and high school senior photography needs.

    We offer all custom photography sessions. Meaning we find out what you like/don't like, a special location that you would like to shoot at, and if you have any products in mind. This is not a box studio experience we are committed to personalizing all sessions to your wants and needs.

Pedrogo-Loudon Wedding

Jacqueline and Kevin’s wedding was held at Elegant Affairs here in Lancaster, CA. It was a beautiful ceremony! And amazingly it wasn’t to hot or windy here in the desert. Of course the later ceremony time really helped with it being a cooler part of the day. You could tell it was a happy day for everyone. Each member of the bridal party gave a heartfelt speech that was very personal to both the bride and groom. Happy tears were flying at all points of the evening.

Holderman-Patton Slideshow

I finally got around to putting a slideshow together for Sarah and Brandon’s wedding at the Kindred Community Church. Click here to see the slideshow in full screen or just watch below. Enjoy!

Urban Photography!

One aspect of photography that I’d really like to start focusing on is urban photography. So to learn a little more I decided to enroll in a one day urban photography workshop. I was so excited and came home even more excited. We spent the morning and afternoon shooting around downtown Riverside. I got some great shots and I learned a ton. From shooting to post processing to business basics. It was an eye opening experience for a newbie to the photog business like me. Check out some of what I shot on Saturday,



Slideshow Revamped

Holiday Mini Sessions

Well, summer is flying by and winter will be here before we know it. So I wanted to get some info out there about Holiday Mini Sessions. These are great sessions to capture some of your families moments for Holiday cards and gifts. Last year was hectic, so this year there are a few guidelines. All sessions must be photographed by the end of November in order to guarantee delivery of prints and cards before the 25th of December. I will also be booking a limited number of sessions, so please reserve your dates early.

*For locations outside of the Antelope Valley there may be an additional travel fee required. Please inquire for additional information.
