My name is Mike Dragon. I’ve been in the photography industry for over ten years. Photography started as a curiosity and has grown to be my passion. I’ve worked hard to become a well rounded artist. I studied photography in college and finished strong with a Photography Degree. I’ve worked under some well known professionals to learn first hand how to run a successful photography studio. Every day I wake up I do what I love.

My style is very different from most photographers. I try hard not to follow industry trends. I march to the beat of my own drummer. I take a laid back approach to my business all while maintaining composure and professionalism. During a session or event you will feel at ease. Personally, it’s all about making connections and building relationships with everyone I photograph. When you choose Dragon Studio as your photographer you’re not just another number you’re like family.

Book mike now!

If you are having a wedding and considering Mike Dragon, look no further!! Firstly he has a STELLAR value. One of the best out there. Secondly, I had a lot of requests (many of them strange, and perhaps even obnoxious) for how I wanted my photos to look and what I wanted them to include (or exclude) and Mike made it all happen so seamlessly! He is professional and fun, and funny, and he listened to both my husband and I's requests. He is great at getting the job done but also feeling the vibe of the moment. He captured moments I didn't even think to ask for and now those photos are so dear to me, I couldn't imagine not having them. He is very flexible and very considerate! He's super chill and can work with all types of people. If you are thinking about booking Mike, don't walk-- RUN to do so! Would 100% book again, cannot recommend highly enough!!

Fantastic Photographer

Mike is just fantastic at what he does. He's so personable and a great guy to know. He did our engagement photos, wedding, and will be doing my grad school portraits next month. Highly recommend!

A wedding to remember

Mike did a great job as photographer at our wedding. He planned well ahead and ensured that all photos were taken as discussed and then some! Photos are beautiful from before the ceremony through the reception - he caught all the best moves on the dance floor! We highly recommend Mike as your photographer for any event - he was the best!
