WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA & FLORIDA KEYS REAL MOMENTS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Born and raised in North Carolina, I started my photography career in the Florida Keys and South Florida. Now I’m splitting my time between Western North Carolina and Florida.

Nature, light, and people watching have always drawn me in and quieted me. Still, I don’t run from chaos; I dive in headfirst…. that’s where the beauty is!

Located in Asheville, North Carolina and Key West, Florida, I work primarily in those areas, but travel all over the country and abroad to shoot weddings.

MORE ABOUT MICHAEL

STORYTELLER. OUTDOORSMAN. LOVES BBQ.

I’ve been shooting weddings for 7 years. Before that, I tried to be a chef.


When I was first introduced to the wedding world, I thought that photography was too repetitive. Now I look for genuine moments that tell the story of the day.


I can’t decide what I like to do more, surf or snowboard. So I split my time and shoot destination weddings that have surf close by.


I will eat BBQ for every meal, if possible.


I love to travel. My goal is to shoot a wedding in every state before “I retire”.


I wanted to be a history teacher and coach high school soccer when I graduated high school.

Weddings in the Florida Keys mesh laughter, beauty, light, and nature and that’s probably what drew me to wedding photography. I’ve got big energy, and I’ve got a big love for people who embrace living their day to the fullest and aren’t bothered by a little sand in their shoes.

The city motto of Key West is “One Human Family,” and I’ve always liked that saying. It’s one of the things I like to capture most at weddings, the coming together of the guests as one big human family to celebrate this new adventure for the couple. It doesn’t matter if there are ten guests at your wedding or 100, it’s there.

Photographing weddings and seeing the undiluted joy of two people coming together in this magical chain of islands is something I have trouble describing, so instead, I put the camera to my face and show people with my photos.

If the photos I have made speak to you, let’s talk about your wedding day. I’m honored to be considered to capture the start of your adventure.
