About Shutterhead Studios

Here's the Feely Stuff

First and foremost, I'm going to be myself with you. I'll make jokes and tell stories and ask questions and get excited and say four-letter words (but not around delicate little ears) and generally treat you like I treat my best friends. When I walk in to the room full of groomsmen and say "it smells like sex in here," they're like "whoa this dude's one of us." I promise you it works. Every. Single. Time.

But it's not just for laughs or shock value, and it's not an act--not some ploy to make you like me. It's pretty simply just how I work best. Think about how you act around your best friends. Do you say what you're thinking? Do you laugh when you're amused? Do you share your excellence AND your insecurities? YES OF COURSE YOU DO. That's the definition of being yourself!

Now, I understand I'm not among your best friends. We've likely not met. But part of my expertise comes from the ability to show up to our shoot and just be myself. To say what I'm thinking, to laugh when I'm amused, and most importantly, to share my excellence AND my insecurities. Because I believe you won't judge me. I TRUST YOU. So mayyyybe you'll see that this is a safe place: that you can say or do anything.

This is why instead of asking you to smile during our shoot, I'll set you up to laugh with your partner: because your laughing face--not your photo smile--is who you ARE. It's why I don't spend a lot of time or energy posing: because your body language toward each other is SO MUCH MORE representative of your relationship than anything I could suggest.

I'm here to help create SPACE for you and your partner to be yourselves. THIS is my skill--my expertise--the reason I'm so expensive. THIS is where the amazing pictures start. My entire philosophy and body of work relies upon the simple theory that the images you'll love the most are those where you can see yourself as your truest self.

If this sounds good and reasonable to you, let's talk.

    Mike Stempler/Shutterhead review

    Mike did an exceptional job as our wedding photographer, I would highly recommend his expertise to anyone considering wedding photographers. The hundreds of photographs he took were both unique and artistic, and we were extremely pleased with the final product. He was professional, punctual, and has a good sense of humor to inject some levity into stressful situations (we had to move our wedding from outside to inside within 30 minutes of the ceremony). He was also able to corral family, friends, and all parties for photos after the ceremony and prior to the reception efficiently and effectively. I would highly recommend Mike Stempler and we would certainly be willing to use his services again the future for various life events.

    Highly recommend!

    We loved working with Mike! For us, the best part about Mike was how easy he was to work with, and how comfortable we felt around him. We really appreciated his laid-back, easygoing nature.

    Also, Mike was extremely flexible and responsive to our particular requests and scenarios. We had a somewhat-unusual ask of him— to try to get photos of as many couples and families as possible at our wedding, so we could provide those photos later to them—and he did a great job! Mike is excellent at listening and understanding what you are looking for, and delivering on that. And of course he is professional, timely, and reliable— and his prices are reasonable, too.

    We are looking forward to hopefully working with Mike again in the future! We highly recommend him!

Owner

I live in Columbus with my wife and daughter, who are the Absolute Loves of My Life. I'll almost certainly talk about them at our shoot. I love asking questions and making jokes just playing around with my couples. Well, with everybody really.

Photography is my full-time gig. I love it, and I'm good at it, and I've been doing it for 12 years. My camera feels like an extension of arm, so most of my creative energy goes into helping my couples be themselves.
