I'm a photographer, and this blog is all about sharing my work. Through the images presented here I hope you'll experience the fun, energy, honesty and emotion I have been entrusted to document.

I specialize in the photography of family history because I love to create memorable images of real life, both for you and for your entire family. If that sounds interesting, drop me a line. I’d love to talk with you.

Until then, welcome.

 

TV Interview on The Ottawa Experts

I’m famous!

Well, not really. But I feel famous :)

I had the pleasure of joining Floralove Katz on the Rogers local cable TV show The Ottawa Experts to talk about wedding photography. I share some of my best wedding photography tips, thoughts on weddings in general and talk about style.

Waiting to go on I was pretty nervous but once I got into the chair, everything went pretty well I think. It’s always strange to see and hear yourself though isn’t it?

I’d love to know what you think too! And feel free to ask any questions you may have, and I’ll answer them for you here.

…Mike

Nadia and Franco were married on a warm September afternoon at le Cordon Bleu. Franco didn’t have much family here as he recently arrived from Italy, but Nadia’s family stepped in to welcome him like the family he now is. Congrats to you both!
