MY PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS
My wedding collections are infused with consistent and creative technique, dynamic portraiture and bold photojournalism.
I work with couples who are adventurous, creative and appreciate creative professional photography. They are inspired by and admire the art of visual storytelling. I capture those moments that will be cherished for years on end.
More About Mike
North Carolina mountain born and bred, I never expected to call Key West my home. If I’m being honest, I never expected to become a photographer, much less a wedding photographer. I’m learning that the best things in my life are things I never expected, and things I could not have imagined.
Nature, light, and music has always drawn me in and quieted me. If you have a messy, chaotic mind like mine, you might understand that. When I put the camera to my face for the first time, it unlocked something inside me. I’d always been the funny one, the loud one, the athletic one, the naughty one, but never the CREATIVE one. But that creativity was in me, and all it took was a dusty old Kodak Ektra 100 camera that my grandpa gave me. Though life took me down many paths before I found photography, I think he would be proud to know he planted the seeds for a career I truly love. I still miss him.
Weddings in the Florida Keys mesh laughter, beauty, light, and nature and that’s probably what drew me to wedding photography. I’ve got big energy, and I’ve got a big love for people who embrace living their day to the fullest and aren’t bothered by a little sand in their shoes.
The city motto of Key West is “One Human Family,” and I’ve always liked that saying. It’s one of the things I like to capture most at weddings, the coming together of the guests as one big human family to celebrate this new adventure for the couple. It doesn’t matter if there are ten guests at your wedding or 100, it’s there.
Photographing weddings and seeing the undiluted joy of two people coming together in this magical chain of islands is something I have trouble describing, so instead, I put the camera to my face and show people with my photos.
If the photos I have made speak to you, let’s talk about your wedding day. I’m honored to be considered to capture the start of your adventure.
“We Love Because It’s the Only True Adventure”
