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.

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!

LaShawn and I can't say enough about Mike. We fell in love with him at our first meeting. We hired Mike for our engagement pictures and for our wedding. His photography is awesome and he has a personality to match. The week of the wedding I was stressing out over the smallest detail and Mike took the time to speak with me several times about my options. If you are looking for a photographer that feels more like your friend which makes taking pictures very easier, Mike is your guy. If you want a photographer at your wedding who is so cool people think he's just a guest, then Mike is your man. We haven't received our final wedding pictures back yet, but I have been able to see a couple and they are gourgous!

Mike was the photographer at my friends wedding, and after meeting and talking with him I knew that one day when I got married I wanted him to be our photographer. After we got engaged Mike was the first vendor I booked! Mike Dragon has such amazing an amazing personality, his sense of humor helped get me through my wedding day nerves and he was always quick to respond to any questions via email or phone. Casey and I really felt like we not only had a great photographer but a new friend. His consultation was held at his home, and it was really cool to be welcomed into his home and get to see such a happy home.
I can't stop looking at our pictures, his photographs are unbelievable. Mike really captured who we are as a couple and we will be forever thankful.
