We hired Michael for a shoot for my family in May. We absolutely love Michael and his work. He was able to blend in with our family and take those candid and planned moments, which is exactly what we where looking for. The shots yielded photos and memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Michael and his assistant were easy to work with in both his set up the day of the shoot and the day he delivered the images on our very own website. Michael is also quick to respond to text and emails.

Michael has a great eye for getting amazing and unique shots. I've known Michael for years and he's a lot of fun to work with, open to suggestions, and has a great creative flare for capturing unscripted and candid moments, which are my favorite shots. I've worked with Michael on quite a few projects already including headshots and he was our go to guy for providing amazing photos of actors and guests during our film premiers as well as capturing moments on the runway at local fashion shows both large and small. There will definitely be many more to come. Would definitely recommend.

Michael was amazing!! He took someone (Me) who’s always felt uncomfortable in her own skin and even more so in front of a camera and made me feel like a supermodel.. he gave me tips and tricks that I could use so I didn’t feel so uncomfortable, he showed me how to hold my head, how to place my hands, he guided me through everything. And I believe his works speaks for itself!! For once I’m able to show of pictures of myself and not wonder what people will think because I’m absolutely in love with them. I’m already booking for our family photos that are long over due. Not only are his photos and Professionalism amazing he was able to work around my crazy schedule and even moved his plans around to accommodate me. His Responsiveness was amazing I received updates and previews faster then I even expected. On a rating scale I’d give Michael a 10/10. If you’re looking to book someone for your next event, family pictures, engagement pictures, or even just a personal photo shoot Michael is the Photograph for you.. Thank you again for the breathtaking pictures and wonderful experience.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing corresponds with the quality of photos that I give you. I spend on average about 2 hrs a shoot, I won't stop until I get the results you deserve. I leave no stone unturned in satisfying my Client's desires. Once the shot is done I take pride in editing your pictures. I am meticulous in editing and you will not be disappointed in the end product. I don't produce garbage and take pride in my work. It is all about the details, because you only get one shot at capturing the moment.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Communication with my Clients is key. I ask them what their vision is and ask for them to see some examples of other photos that they envision themselves doing. I go over what their wardrobe and give suggestions as well if they are unsure. I will look for examples of what they are looking for and discuss whether or not it is something they are comfortable with.I make sure I know what their expectations are and assure them that I am on the same page. I let them know who maybe my Assistant if I feel I need one, so there are no suprises when they show up. I confirm time, place, and payment method. I follow up with Client closer to shoot to ensure there is any changes to plan or their vision. When the shoot is finished, I let them know when and how they can expect to see the results. I will post to a webpage, which only they can see, to be able to view and download images so they can post, share, or print. I always follow up and get the customer's feedback, because I really care and take each shoot personally.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have taken college and non-credit courses in Photography. I have been practicing my craft for over 20 years. I am always striving to learn new techniques and looks.
