About Michael Simon Photography

After graduating from The Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Fine Arts (Photography) in 1999, I moved to New York City to be a photojournalist. Since then I have worked for The Newark Star Ledger, The Baltimore Sun, and The New York Times, among others. I photographed my first wedding in 2003. In 2014 my wife and I moved our family to Richmond, Va.

Wedding photography allows me to document and be a part of one amazing day in the life of two people. It allows me to work directly with the clients and experience their excitement. I would love to speak with you about photographing your wedding.

My photography style is natural and organic. There will be no awkward posing or table shots. I will not instruct the couple to kiss each other again "and this time with more fire!" I want to work with you to achieve a photo document that will let you relive your wedding day every time you look at it, from the carefully chosen details to the overwhelming emotions to the presence and support of friends and family.

This is your day, and these are your photos. When you receive your photos on flash drive, they are yours to share online or reprint in any quantity or size forever.

I am available to photograph weddings in Virginia, New York, and worldwide.

    The best vendor we hired

    Michael was by far the best photographer we could have asked for. He's professional, but chill. I absolutely cannot wait to see the results! The pictures in the preview that we got (only a week after the wedding!!) were fantastic. He really excels at candids, but of course the posed pictures were great as well. When we talked to Michael originally on the phone, we immediately felt at ease. He's got everything down, and knows the right questions to ask to make sure he captures every special moment. We talked on the phone multiple times, once for an hour and a half, to figure out all of the logistics, and we also did a venue walkthrough with him because he was unfamiliar with the venue. A little higher priced than some, but 1000% worth every penny.

    Working with Mike for our wedding was a dream come true. We met twice before the big day and he not only shared great ideas but also asked us about ourselves so he could make sure the photos and process really reflected us, which they did. He was easy going day-of, keeping his eye on the time while assuring us everything was going well. It just felt so relaxed and natural. He was willing to do whatever we wanted, including trapsing through the woods to find a certain spot (our idea). He was great with our families, the guests loved him (“who is that?!” They said), and our pictures are truly magical. We love Michael Simon!! Thank you for making our wedding day so incredible.

    Michael Simon made our day absolutely perfect. The photography was very important to us both and Michael did not disappoint. His professionalism was stellar and his turn around time, despite our wedding taking place at the start of holiday season, was fast. He made our day complete!
