About

On WeddingWire since 2020

Luminous Photography is a married team living in Charlotte, North Carolina, that specializes in wedding photography. Heather and Mike complement each other as partners in life and partners in business alike. Seeing how their own wedding album transported them back to the big day when they first opened it, the pair found a passion in enabling other newlyweds to experience the same joy all over again. Weds-to-be can work with the dynamic duo from their engagement to the special day, capturing stunning images as they go.

Services Offered

With two talented photographers, no moment will be missed. The team can also provide additional hours for longer days. From an engagement session to the ceremony and reception, the images created can be used for save-the-dates and thank-you cards. Using natural and traditional photography styles, the team snaps timeless photos at weddings both in the United States and abroad.

    The very best photographer you'll find in Charlotte

    Don't hire them if you only want the same boring wedding photos you see everywhere.
    Don't hire them if you want pictures with fake smiles and cheesy poses.

    Hire them if you want to capture those intimate moments no one else will notice or remember.
    Hire them if you want a photographer who understands how to capture your best side.
    Hire them if you want confidence that your photographer cares about the day as much as you do.

    On a day that is fraught with stress from every direction, Luminous will be one thing you won't have to worry about. They are consummate professionals who operate behind the scenes. When you see their final work, you will re-live that special day all over again.

    Pure Artistry

    Luminous Photography, Mike and his wife provided us with creative ideas and excellent direction for poses and backgrounds that resulted in stunning photographs. The originality and eye for detail, knowledge of best lighting is demonstrated by their artistry. They also are experts at organization and bringing calmness when things get hectic for bride and groom. Their flexibility to attend various events during the wedding ceremony and reception allowed us to have the entire event captured in photographs. We had so many great pictures to choose from it was hard to select the favorites for our album. The selection process and the making of the album is a very easy process to maneuver as well.

    Highly recommended! Couldn't be happier with them!

    Getting to work with Mike and Heather was such a wonderful experience on our big day! They were incredibly professional, kind, and helpful throughout all of both planning and our wedding day. There's a lot that goes on during a wedding day, but they helped us relax and enjoy all of the photography process and we both greatly appreciate that from them! They were always happy and helpful and every part of working with them went smoothly! We absolutely love the pictures that they took of us! They did such a wonderful job capturing both formal and candid photos of everyone at the wedding and captured the day incredibly well. The style of the pictures truly is timeless and we know that we will enjoy them forever! I can't recommend them enough!

    The best decision we made

    Where to begin! Finding the right photographer for the biggest moment of your life is quite intimidating. Hiring Mike & Heather for both our engagement photos and our wedding was by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Not only are the the most down to earth and cool people, their photos are stunning. They made us feel so comfortable and confident and captured EVERY detail we could have wanted. And they were efficient! We actually got to enjoy our wedding! We couldn't be happier in our decision and will cherish the photos forever.

    Luminous Photography's reply:

    These kind words mean the world to us. Your dance floor vibe was 100! Such an amazing wedding and we are honored to have been a part of of it!

    Absolutely Perfect

    Just WOW. Mike and Heather were timely professional and on the ball! They worked with us to meet our slightly different taste in photos and they delivered. I am so happy and excited that we were able to work with them. Heather made me so comfortable and had such a great eye for styling detail and getting us posed while Mike framing of our photos and unique ideas were truly amazing. We could not be happier with our experience and our photos!

    Luminous Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for your AMAZING review, it truly means the world to us that you are both happy with your photos. You and Alex were an absolute pleasure to work with! CONGRATS!

    So pleased with our photos!

    Mike and Heather did such a fabulous job of capturing our special day! Since we are an older couple on our second marriages, it was not important to us to have all the traditional wedding shots. We asked them to capture the celebration and they did not disappoint. Hire them! You won't regret it!

    Thankful we booked Michael & Heather for our wedding photography! Best decision ever!

    After seeing our friends photos from their wedding we knew we had to have Michael & Heather capture our big day. From start to finish we were met with professionalism, friendliness & confidence. We were married at the courthouse and did a mini session with Mike & Heather before marrying. We both felt extremely comfortable in their presence and their ideas for poses. Their directions were very helpful and everything felt incredibly natural. Our photos are absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend working with them!

    Great proposal photos!

    Mike and Heather were great! They both photographed the proposal, which gave us two perspectives of the moment! They were very helpful with coordinating with the venue and making sure the location looked great when we arrived. We are very happy with how the photos turned out!

    Luminous Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for this amazing review Brian! You and Katie were absolutely wonderful to work with and what an INCREDIBLE proposal that was! Congrats again to you both!
