I was in Aruba again for Rob and Anne's wedding recently. I can't begin to explain how much I love it there. This was our 4th time shooting there and I fall more in love with the island every time I go. The wedding was on Renaissance Island, and like all of the others I've shot there, was on a gorgeous day. If you're getting married in Aruba, give me a call! I'd love to work with you!

Looks equivalent an newsworthy diary. Present tidy impose again.

Kenny and Bri's wedding at the Viceroy in Anguilla was amazing.

Monique Lhuillier and Badgley Mischka... not a bad way to start the day:

Love it when the guy gets a sweet suit too... girls get all of the fun with the dress. :)

Is there a better location for a intimate ceremony?

Fantastic work, as always! I especially love that shot of the sun over the water... beautiful.

Nice work Michael. I love the west indies! Miss it. Great images, especially the light at sunset!
[March 1, 2012] Mark Richardson - Newcastle Wedding Photographer said:
You've done a great job of managing the sun in these images. Obviously what was effectively a light tent helped for the ceremony, but the backlit photos on the hillside are really well controlled. I'm guessing you weren't using any fill-flash - just exposed for the skin tones? (There's no exif on the images)

Great wedding photos.. Very inspirational. Keep up the good work. Regards Rob

I just got the spreads back from The Knot of two of my favorite weddings from last year.  Kristin and Mike and Bola and Gbolabo. Kristin and Mike's wedding is in The Knot - Southern California, and Bola and Gbolabo's wedding is featured in The Knot - Philadelphia. Its always so amazing to see my work in print... it never get's old. :)

You can find the wedding shoes on our website, why don't you give it a shot and take a look at our website.
[January 12, 2013] Bernice R said:
Wow - CONGRATS to you on the features, Michael! That is terrific!

Here are a some images from an engagement session I shot a few weeks ago. We started out in the Meatpacking District, on the High Line, then headed over to Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park. We found some really cool spots over there that I'd never noticed before. I love the light here in winter. There's something about it that is so amazing and so different from anywhere else I've shot. Hope you like them!

I'm envious, you couple are sweet. Nice pictures too.

Angela and JT got married in Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago at ReBar, an incredible space right by the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. It was a really fun wedding with lots of details designed by Angela. Here are a few of my favorites from the day:

Just stumbled across this set (and the blog!) and just wanted to comment on how great the group shots are. They are clearly having fun - something that isn't always easy to achieve when you're doing group shots!

Very great wedding!
[December 2, 2012] Cheap Jimmy Choo said:
Amazing bride, i hope i can be that beautiful when my big day coming.

Chelsea and Serge got married at the Boathouse in Prospect Park Brooklyn and had one of the most fun weddings I've ever been a part of. Serge's family is Serbian and they had a Serbian band come play during the reception. It was MADNESS. Amazing, glorious, madness. Haha. They definitely know how to party. :)

I'm leaving town in a few hours so I didn't have time to blog the whole wedding but here are some of my favorites from the portrait time.

this couple is so gorgeous!

This post is pretty special to me. Curt is one of my best friends. We were college roommates, fraternity brothers, and to this day he's as close to me as family. I got to shoot (and be a groomsman in) his wedding last month, outside Dallas. It was really amazing to see my friend, who's gone through a pretty tumultuous few years, be so incredibly happy.

Obviously since I was IN the wedding I don't have images from the ceremony, so here are a few of my favorite portraits.

Congrats Curt and Mandy. I love you guys!

The new family. 15 years after we met...

Curt's daughters... two of my favorite little girls in the world.

Fabulous shots, Norwood. That was a fun weekend.

The images look great! I was extremely glad you could be there to shoot and infinitely more happy that you could stand next to me while I married the love of my life. You're a great brother and friend, Michael.

WOW, You have some pretty fantastic work, such inspirational work indeed.

What was supposed to be a perfect fall day in New York turned out to be a record setting snow storm here in Manhattan. Luckily Allison was on the ball and noticed the forecast a couple days prior so we shot their session one day early, still not knowing exactly what kind of terrible weather we had escaped. Due to an unusually warm October we didn't have the fall color Allison and Tony traveled across the country to see but I think we got some great images that day. Here are a few of my favorites.

Love it man. Seriously the sickest photographer I know.

Last month I shot Stephanie and Ty's wedding in Aruba and it was awesome. It was the second wedding I've shot there and, man, I'd shoot there a hundred more times. What a beautiful place. The wedding was on Renaissance Island, a small private island just off the coast of Aruba.

Here are some of my favorites...

I love that there are flamingos all over the island, so fun!

The sunsets in Aruba are just amazing...

As you might have been able to tell, it was getting pretty dark in those last few portraits of Stephanie and Ty. Luckily we had some time scheduled the next day for more portraits. We headed over to the other side of the island for some different scenery. Such amazing locations.
