About

Award Winning, Long Island, NY based Wedding & Portrait Photographer!

As an fully independent Wedding Photographer, my goal is to always forge a bond with the bride and groom that starts at the first meeting and that lasts far beyond the day of your wedding. I am the photographer that will make a fool out myself just to make you laugh, the photographer who will dance with you throughout your reception, and the one that will capture the best moments when you least expect it.

From photographing the day, to editing the images, to designing the album, I am there from square one to the very end.

1000% Recommend Mike!!

When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we agreed that our photographer would be the most important vendor we booked, since pictures last a lifetime. When we came across Mike's work we were excited, and after speaking to Mike, we were sold! It's so clear that Mike not only cares tremendously about taking the most beautiful photos, but he also cares so much for his couples and making sure we were both comfortable and enjoying the day. Mike was great at communicating with us and helping us prepare for our engagement shoot and wedding day, he was up for an adventure when we asked to have our engagement shoot at a vineyard he hadn't shot at before, he was flexible in making our timeline, and he brought so much positive energy to our wedding day, all while remaining professional and getting all of the shots we asked for. We are OBSESSED with our gallery (as are our families and friends), and we are so grateful to Mike for capturing so many beautiful moments of our day. We couldn't recommend him enough!!

Mike is The Best!!

We have worked with Mike since summer of 2021. He shot our engagement shoot, maternity shoot and finally our wedding on 4-5-2024. Mike is a family man and it shows. He is patient, kind, and sooo organized. He made us feel at ease during our shoots. My husband can be a bit shy in front of the camera but Mike had us cracking up. He just brings great vibes. He is easily reachable by email or text. Even with his busy schedule he would manage to carve out some time for a phone call. My wedding day felt so smooth and I strongly feel it was because of him and his team. He worked closely with us to plan the timing of everything on our big day. I did not feel rushed and I had so much fun working with him. We will miss not being so in touch with Mike since our wedding is over but we cannot wait to book a family photoshoot soon! He is worth it !! book him for your wedding you won't regret it. Your photos will be beautiful and your experience will be exceptional. Thank you Mike!!

Mike is TRULY the best!

I was about to write Mike an email thanking him for the millionth time, and I decided to share my thoughts here instead. WOW- Mike is PHENOMENAL. I truly can’t articulate how happy I am that we chose Mike to capture our day. I am going through my wedding gallery again after receiving it yesterday, and I’m in awe. The photos are absolutely stunning, and everyone we show is beyond impressed. I am re-living our day over and over through Mike’s lens, and he truly captured everything perfectly.

What’s even crazier is that the incredible gallery is the icing on the cake— Mike was a dream to work with throughout this entire process. He was there when there were bumps in the road, from the less than ideal weather on our engagement shoot to a last-minute issue with our venue. It was great to have Mike in our corner. We were thrilled with our experience from engagement shoot all the way through wedding gallery delivery. He sent us a ton of teasers within a couple of days of our wedding, and they were so good that I honestly would have even been happy if I JUST had those teasers.

I (and everyone else) can’t stop talking about how Mike was the best decision we made for the day of our wedding. He kept everything fun and running smoothly. Several people from our wedding party said they are going to choose their future wedding date based on Mike’s availability, that’s how amazing he was.

Mike is such a genuinely great human— incredible communication, organization, and professionalism.
