back to photographers


Hi, my name is Michael but you can call me whatever you’d like.

I’ve been on this photography journey for the last 19 years and for the last 12 years, I’ve had a camera in my hand every day photographing our daughters Ava & Bella (see AB project). I intentionally try to live a life with purpose and meaning. Being a storyteller allows me to do that.

I’m a people person by nature. I enjoy human interaction. I enjoy good conversations and I enjoy being around people that have a zest for living. I’m an adventurous person that enjoys being outdoors; you know long walks on the beach, etc.

My wife and children are the three most favorite people in my life. Because of my children (and Melissa finding everything funny), my dad jokes have gone from meh to absolutely top-notch.

Traveling is a big part of our lives. I find culture, new landscapes, new people all inspiring and fuel me creatively.

Giving back and being a part of the community is also really important to me. I started a non-profit 5 years ago and has been a very fulfilling part of my life.

In my spare time, I doodle with chalk. I draw interactive chalk portraits. Confused? You can follow me on Instagram at @chalkboadportraits.


Packages for Michael + Melissa start at $5200
