discover my purpose and my approach
How you feel on your wedding day will act as the filter through which you view your images. While someone can be a great photographer, they may not be a great wedding photographer if they lack the ability to put people at ease. That's why I prioritize your experience over anything else. I bring a positive and calming demeanor, and I'm prepared to help make your photos and your day extraordinary.
Because your memories of this day are far too important to let anything get in the way of your happiness!
"I COULD TELL THAT HE TRULY CARED ABOUT WHAT I WANTED AND ENVISIONED FOR MY WEDDING"
"He was so easy to talk to and really made me feel at ease about everything - which ultimately came through as he was shooting our big day. He's so genuine as a person and so passionate about his work."
I'M ALL ABOUT
A SENSE of WHO I AM
a sense of joy
As a wedding photographer, the thing I love the most is witnessing the joy that surrounds you as you begin your lives together. And capturing that joy in my work...there's no feeling quite like it! I'll be with you more than anyone else throughout the weekend, and make it my mission to make things fun and enjoyable for everyone.
a sense of PROFESSIONALISM
Prior to photographing weddings, I spent over ten years producing and directing commercial photo shoots for national ad campaigns. It was there that I learned to approach each photo with a designer's eye. And because I'm accustomed to maintaining my composure while working under pressure, I promise to bring a professional, calm, and collected demeanor to your wedding day.
a sense of CLASS
Rather than an artistic vision or the latest photography trend, I deliver timeless images of this once-in-a-lifetime day by using both film and digital mediums. And with my eye for detail, my background in design, and my perfectionistic tendencies, you are guaranteed images that are consistently elegant, classic, and clean. No matter what.
a sense of COMFORT
It's normal to feel anxious in front of the camera. I'll give you just the right amount of guidance and direction while letting things naturally play out. And if that doesn't do the trick, I've been told that my easy-going personality will help you feel comfortable to be yourselves.
a sense of DEDICATION
The same drive, hard work, and dedication I bring to life is the same I'll bring to your experience and your photos.
CAPTURING MEMORIES FOR YOUR LEGACY, IS A LEGACY I CAN BE PROUD OF
I can't think of a more rewarding way to use my time and talent than capturing the love between two people. Creating images you will cherish and pass along to future generations is an honor.
And a legacy I am incredibly proud of.
"The photos are beautiful, he made us comfortable and have fun (he is very fun!), and he worked seamlessly with all our other vendors. We felt like we could be ourselves around Mike, and he really captured our love!! He's the exact person you want around you on your wedding day!"
