About this pro

I was born and raised here in Maine and developed my passion for photography at an early age. I am a second-generation photographer as my father was full time shooting weddings, portraits and he was the official Beech Ridge Speedway photographer. I was printing and processing for him in our basement at 15. As the years moved forward I decided that I would like to try my hand at shooting. The more I shot the more I wanted to become full time. I have been fortunate to take the weddings of couples children that my father had shot their wedding. Special moments like those have convinced me that photography is truly an art that produces only fond memories.

I currently live in Buxton, Maine and cover Southern Maine, New Hampshire, and Northern Massachusetts. I shoot both film and digital. My prices and packages are designed to fit your requirements. No matter what the event the results will be professional. Portraits can be taken at location of your choice or at your home.

We provide professional photography services that are reasonably priced.

The services provided include portraits, weddings, and other events. Our packages are designed to suit your individual needs. All packages include 4x6 finished photographs without logos or copyright imprint. Packages also include our forfeiting of all copyright to you.

A second photographer and assistant is included to make sure that all of your event's special moments are captured. Online posting of your event will also be included.

Please call for more info.

    Michael joined us for an afternoon to take a series of family photos. Two grandparents, three kids, three daughters/sons-in-law, and six (active) grand kids...he managed to get great pictures of everyone! We're planning to have him back again this summer to capture the family!

    Michaels came to our place on the lake for a few hours of 3 generational casual and lightly staged photos. He was wonderful. He know how to use light and engage folks of all ages. I can't imagine how to suggest improvements. He knows what he is doing. The photos came out great. Could not have been better. We are using him again this summer.
