About Michael Simon Photography

Honest, diligent, visually talented.

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.

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!

Michael was fantastic! We had spoken to a few other photographers and he immediately made us feel comfortable and at ease. Not only was he extremely accommodating with our slightly unusual schedule, but he had a great attitude and was consummate professional. He provided some helpful guidance and really focused on what we wanted. We felt like he made an effort to get to know us before the event and spent time to get to know our venue before the event. Many of our guests commented later on how impressed they were with him. Plus, he's just a really nice guy! We would recommend him highly and without hesitation!
