Welcome! My name's Mike and I have been a Charlottesville-based wedding photographer for over a decade.

I approach each wedding day with the eye of an artist and the mindset of a story teller; taking a photojournalistic approach to creatively capturing each special moment.

A loving smile, a belly laugh, a tear of joy as it rolls down your cheek - preserving the love and happiness you two share with each other on your wedding day is the most important thing to me.

My goal is to create works of art that embody your passion, love, and commitment to each other.

Meet Mike

artistic. cinematic. real.

Your wedding day should be all about you, your love, and the friends and family you’ve gathered together. You definitely don't need a stranger following you around, molding you into stiff poses that don’t feel natural.

I make it a point to get to know you as a couple before your day so that when it's time for the more “formal” photos, you won’t feel uncomfortable.

Instead of posing and molding, I will guide you through interactions with each other. That way you'll remember those moments as time spent together.

Letting the rest of the day unfold naturally, I focus on capturing candid moments of spontaneous emotion without getting in the way.

I offer wedding packages that begin at $4,400 with a la carte options to fit your needs.

YOUR DAY. Your Way.

MEET MIKE

I’m a native Charlottesvillian and I love my town. From learning to ride a bike on Eastbrook Drive to shooting my first wedding right down Route 29, Charlottesville has always been my home.

As a kid, I remember going on long camping trips with my family in stunning locations, being blown away by the beauty of it all, and wanting to preserve those moments. 

When I discovered my passion for photography I was on the other side of the world exploring the Middle East. That's when I knew I wanted to spend my time making photos that would be both artistic and meaningful.

So I became a Charlottesville wedding photographer! Now I get to share what I love with you by capturing the sweet moments of your day and turning them into lasting pieces of art. I think that's pretty great.

When I'm not preserving wedding memories, you'll find me nose deep in a good fantasy novel, planning my next adventure, or discovering delicious new foods with my wife, Charlotte. We have two of the cutest (most terrible) cats in the whole world and I have the deaths of an obscene number of basil plants on my hands.

I would love to get to know you and hear about your wedding journey over coffee or drinks!
