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.

charlottesville, va + destination wedding photographer

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

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!

MEET MIKE

Mike was an absolute joy to work with. He's creative, fun, easy going, flexible and, oh yeah, extremely talented!! If you want natural, happy, catch-the-people-you-love-in-a-moment-you-love photos - he's your guy. He has a way of making you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera and honestly made us look great. And if he says "I've got an idea..." - run with it! Those were some of my favorite photos. He was so accommodating and responsive. We were so lucky to find Mike and can't recommend him enough!

We honestly hit the jackpot with Mike! I was searching for a “journalistic style” photographer and stumbled upon Eastbrook Photography and knew immediately it was a perfect match! Mike was extremely accommodating and flexible with phone calls and engagement picture scheduling as we were planning from out-of-state! Mike is ridiculously talented and it shows in every single one of our photographs. We, and our families, will cherish these photos forever and we could not recommend Mike enough!

"WE HONESTLY HIT THE JACKPOT WITH MIKE!"

 EMMY & NICK

I really just can’t say enough about Mike and Eastbrook Photography! Mike is so friendly and laid back and made us feel really relaxed while we were taking pictures. When we had to change our plans due to COVID, Mike was very accommodating and easy to work with. We love our photos so much and absolutely recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a photographer!

"MIKE IS SO FRIENDLY AND LAID BACK AND MADE US FEEL REALLY RELAXED..."

 MELISSA & ERIC

From our first conversations it was clear Mike was laid-back, professional, knowledgeable and would be super easy to work with. On the wedding day, Mike and his second shooter made everything easy, fun, and really enhanced our enjoyment of the day. Their welcoming demeanor put everyone at ease and helped us get all of our group shots done efficiently, which gave us a lot of time for fun couple shots when the sun came back out. We couldn't be happier that we chose Mike for our wedding and we recommend him highly! 

"WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER THAT WE CHOSE MIKE FOR OUR WEDDING."
