After I got my fine art degree in photography, I dabbled in commercial photography, portraiture, and fine art photography. Then, I discovered there was an immense gap in the level of quality of these types of photography and conventional wedding photography. So, I set out to change that stigma and bring an artistically fresh, creative, and modern appeal to this industry.Not bound by rules and with an urge to do something new, I photograph weddings looking for real life emotions and situations meant to be seen. I believe in using natural light whenever possible for the most pure and clean appearance. I look for unusual perspectives, fine details, and well-designed compositions for a ?magazine? quality. My ultimate goal is to unite my passion for photography with your individuality to give you images that transcend the mundane and achieve the level of fine art. I love what I do and I hope you find my work inspiring.

Michael was an absolute delight to work with throughout our wedding experience! He made engagment pictures on an unseasonably cold Spring day look vivid and crisp upon final receipt of them! And on our wedding day he was on time (early), brought an assistant to help move things along, came prepared with the list of pictures I had sent him that were 'must haves' earlier that week, and overall was just really fun to work with. Not to mention...his style of photography is so unique - his pictures truly make you feel like you are getting more than what you pay for and they will never look like your friend who just got married's pictures! I get so many compliments on the pictures Michael took for me! I would highly recommend him to ANY bride out there!Sent on 06/14/2011

Michael was so great to work with, from our intitial meeting all the way through to receiving our pictures! We love his style--it's completely unique from any other wedding photographer, especially in the Nashville area. Although his point of view is pretty editorial and has a definite style, he was completely open to my sending him examples of other work that I liked...and was able to give us an awesome mix of his signature work plus the more organic style that we also wanted.Sent on 11/03/2009
On the day, he and his assistant blended in with our guests when we needed them to, and stepped out to direct when we needed that. Really easy and comfortable to work with--which is extremely important!
We didn't think we'd be able to afford Michael when we first began shopping for photographers, but he let us know that some of his packages had been reduced in price due to the economy...so we were able to get exactly what we wanted without any extraneous "stuff" (prints, etc.) We got a disc with all of our pictures to do whatever we need to with. We are so pleased we went with Michael, he did an amazing job!

Michael Howard was the very first wedding vendor I knew without a doubt that we would be using. I have worked with Michael on various shoots in the past and his eye and quality of work were so amazing I knew he would be our wedding photographer. Michael did our wedding day coverage as well as a bridal portrait prior to the wedding day. The end product was AMAZING! Our families were so pleased with all the images that he captured and the way he saw our wedding day through his lens was phenomenal. We definitely received what we paid for with him and if I can give any bride advice, do NOT scrimp on your photographer. This person will be capturing memories for a lifetime, make sure you get someone with an amazing product and someone you feel comfortable with. We are so happy with our choice of photographer and love our wedding photos!Sent on 10/13/2009
