Southern Bride Magazine often features our professional wedding photography, not only because we the lead fashion photographer for the magazine, but because they love our work! Michael's style is romantic, modern, and beautiful. Michael shoots hundreds of weddings and loves every couple. Some photographers have just started their careers, and tend to practice on new clients. Michael's vast professional experience offers his clients the best photography in the business, giving the client confidence that Michael has the best eye for whatever conditions he is shooting in. Michael's eye of fashion gives him an edge, shooting both weddings and commercial catalogs. Next time you pick up a copy of Southern Bride Magazine, look at Michaels work, it's art that everyone loves. For this couple shoot I wanted to get them having fun, embracing and unaware of the camera, the last two shots I asked them to do some silly things that they would not normally do, and I loved the results! Some of these are in the Magazine on newsstands this month!
