Parks Pics - The Keck's Wedding
In the midst of a pandemic, Mike by far made us feel the most comfortable booking with him. He was friendly, flexible and easy to work with. He made our big day feel exciting, perfect, and stress free. For someone who usually feels shy in front of a camera, he made me feel absolutely stunning and comfortable! The photos he shot turned out amazing; we are having a hard time counting/choosing our favorites. We would 10 out of 10 recommend him to shoot for any event!!Sent on 10/19/2020
ParksPictures's reply:Bre - thank you, so much, for your kind recommendation and for taking the time out of your day to write it. I love photographing weddings in general, but you and your families made it a special, inspiring day for me. We created some great images together... and props to Matt for his swing idea:) Thank you Bre!!!

Mike is truly amazing. He made us feel so comfortable and the ways he captured our big day were so beautiful. Many of our guests even told us how great he was with them, too. We were so lucky to have him and highly recommend him!Sent on 11/14/2020

Hi there - I'm a full-time professional photographer. My wedding photography has been published in Photoshop User magazine and won WeddingWire's 2021 Couple's Choice award - I think because my pictures have an authenticity that comes from creative collaboration with my clients.
I really love what I do, and the heart of it is serving my couples. My focus is always on my clients and bringing their vision to life.
I live in Charlotte NC with my wife, two daughers, and stubborn but sweet bulldog Cletus. When I'm not photographing or with my family, I'm usuallly somewhere outside hiking, golfing, or fishing. Oh, and I love to eat and drink - after 23 years in Charlotte, I'm still deciding on the best hamburger joint and brewery!
