About Dragon Studio


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.

Mike Dragon has a 5 star rating because he totally deserves every millimeter of those stars. I first looked him up as one of my venue's preferred photographers, and was really impressed with his eye for composition and light. I'm an art historian and I worried if I had wedding photos that weren't good from an artistic compositional perspective I would hate them. Yes, I know, that makes me fussy. Anyway, Mike is an artist. Look at how he frames light and structure; he's extremely talented as a photographer, let alone wedding photographer. And as a wedding photographer, he and his crew impressed me a whole lot too! My husband and I were nuts, and had a wedding party of 16 bridesmaids and groomsmen-- that's a whole lot of people to wrangle, all of them kind of stressed, plus our big complicated families, and the whole Dragon Studio team was so patient, so professional, and still managed to get it all done! I could not be more impressed. And on the wedding day, brides, let me say this-- the photographer you choose will be with you ALL. DAY. Like, it's their job not miss a single moment, and that means you are going to hang out, and they're going to be a major part of your day. And on your wedding day, you will be radiant but also frazzled and maybe a little crazier than you've ever felt. I am fairly certain Mike Dragon has heard me say all kinds of nonsense (did I mention huge wedding party? like herding deaf kittens!)-- and he was so nice, always with respect and dignity. He and his whole team rolled with the craziness of our big fun day and I cannot imagine it without him. Our pictures are gorgeous! And we have every single group shot we asked for. I could not be more pleased with the entire experience and I recommend him wholeheartedly.

When our original wedding photographer fell out I was freaking out about finding another one. My wedding planner, Crystal Salazar from Cherry Blossom Planning Factory recommended Mike Dragon from Dragon Photo Studio and I'm forever grateful that she did! When I first talked to Mike on the phone I new our personalities were going to jive, and then when I checked out his photos, I knew even more. I asked for unique, fun, and candid photos of the wedding and he went above and beyond that. His work is nothing less than amazing and he captured our special day beautifully. I will recommend him to anyone I know looking for a photographer for any event and plan to ask him to photograph us in the future!
