Oh Hai, I'm Mike!
your friend & photographer
My passion is photography, period. You will rarely see me without a camera in my hand(s). I love capturing the moments in life we want to remember most.
I take a very journalistic approach to my photos, with the right amount of romance and a touch of randomness. Don’t be surprised if I ever pull you away from your dinner to place you in a beautiful light. I strive to ensure that you feel comfortable in front of the camera so you’re in your element: natural and carefree.

TRAVEL is LIFE
There is no denying the fact that I love to travel. My wife and I started off our relationship in Paris 2011 and since then, it has become a huge part of our lives. Each year we’ve made it our goal to travel. One place we fell in love with was Iceland. Its raw, natural beauty and middle-of-nowhere feeling kept us coming back for more (total count is now 4!) Iceland became the place we were married in because we wanted to share this magical place with our friends and family.
In 2016, we took the trip of a lifetime: Left for 13 months of travel without a plan. Life became less a routine and more of an adventure. It came with a lot of challenges but also rewards – experiencing the people, food, and cultures from around the world. From picking up hitchhikers, riding motorbikes through the mountains, failing at scuba-diving, trekking through jungles, and staying in some really off-beat places; a lot of memories were made and close friendships formed (Google translate is my friend). After 96 cities in 22 countries, my eyes are open to the world.
It would be a pleasure to share my love of storytelling with couples looking for adventure. Even locally, let me show you around!
few kind words
Stephanie & Bruce
It's always an immense pleasure to work with Michael. We got to know him while he was doing product shots for our pastry shop. He's kind, funny, and immensely dedicated to his craft. We knew we had to hire him to capture our big day. We love every single shot he captured at our wedding. He has knack for putting people at ease and caught all the very best moments of the most important people in our lives. They're photos we will treasure forever. He's going to be our official photographer for all our big moments from here on out. Thank you Mike!!!
