About Van Gorder Photo

A Nerd's Photography Enterprise! Preserving the great moments in my customer's lives and having a darn good time doing it. Let's find that one moment that tells the biggest story. I've been a professional photographer since 2009, specializing in weddings and slowly accumulating biases about what makes a wedding cake great.

I'd be happy to chat with you about any of the above or anything else you'd like to preserve with a professional's eye.

    SOOOOO..... What can i say, Mike is amazzzzinnnnnggggg..... Our engagement photos were amazing. i love that he lets you be you. that has been the best thing about him. he wants to see your true love, not one that you gets posed for the picture. My husband is silly, and nerdy, so working with mike felt like one of our silly nerdy friends took out pictures. Our wedding pictures were more then i had even imagine. All our family loooooooved his pictures, they have been talking about them all week since we got our pictures. he and his partner were everything. my husband was surprised by how many pictures they were able to get that we didnt even know they were standing there for. It was no nice to see so many smiles and it was awesome to know that mike remembered our "WADE'Em" (inside family thing) from a year ago. I have all but an amazing experience working with him. if you have questions, he answers right away. I mean, he is all around and awesome and amazing dude. SO If you want a photographer that makes you feel at home and not in a lens, make sure you choose mike. THANK YOU MIKE!!!
