About Me


I’m Michelle von Geis, the owner & photographer of Von Geis Photography. I love being able to share in the love of two individuals and feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful people each day!

Based out of Knoxville, TN, I specialize in Wedding Photography! My love of people is what got me into wedding photography. I’ve been a wedding photographer for almost three years and have enjoyed every single wedding I have captured. I am born and raised in Knoxville, TN and my family has been in the area since the 1700's!!

My friends say I'm quirky, quiet, and intentional. My husband would say I'm silly, loving, and anxious, ha!

My husband and I met on Bumble in 2020 and he is my favorite human. We have 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 bunnies! My husband and I enjoy playing golf, eating at Connor's Steak and Seafood, cooking, and hanging out at home.

God is the love of my life, and I cannot thank him enough for bringing me to where I am today. Before I started photography I wrote a blog called "Live Happily Inked" that was about living a life happily inked by God's love, and some of those posts are shared here on this website.

My favorites:

  • Book: A Mans Search For Meaning
  • Drink: Decaf Green Tea
  • Food: Ice Cream
  • Music Genre: RnB
  • Music Artist: Lucky Daye
  • Vacation Spot: Rosemary Beach

Below are some photos that give you a glimpse into my little family...

Here is what to expect when working with me...

Wedding Planning Assistance

Before I photographed weddings, I planned them and studied event management in college. I am happy to help as much, or as little, as you want me to. I will also help you build your wedding day timeline!

Wedding Guide

I have spent hours creating a helpful wedding guide that has lots of wedding planning tips and the photography process. This will be the first thing you receive when you book with me!

Attention To Detail

When you book with me you can be rest assure that you have booked someone who is attentive, professional, and organized. As a photographer, it is my job to notice the big things as well as the little things.

Custom Packages

I offer customer wedding packages! Since your day is unique and special, your wedding photography should be too. Upon your inquiry, I will send you a questionnaire. Once you submit it back to me I will create your custom package!

Shelby G.

Michelle is amazing to work with. She did a joint graduation photo session for my boyfriend and I, and the photos turned out perfect. She helped us with everything from outfits to posing and even had her husband hold our dog for us off-camera. She's a prior UT grad, so she didn't waste any time navigating campus and knew all of the best spots. She even made a short video of us walking across the seal with our dog which is so cool! She's well worth the investment!
