"Michael brings a unique skill set and perspective to his adventure elopements and weddings that sets him apart from a typical wedding photographer. Michael is an outdoor enthusiast and brings decades of experience exploring various landscapes. His knowledge of the land is something that cannot be taught, and most certainly cannot be duplicated by simply taking a traditional wedding shoot outdoors. One of the things that really sets Michael apart from a traditional wedding photographer is his unique understanding of natural light, landscape, and weather. This understanding allows him to maneuver and anticipate conditions as he shoots in both familiar and new locations. Michael’s ability to scout and select beautiful and “off the beaten path” locations is a clear reflection of his decades of experience as an outdoor photographer, his passion for making connections through shared exploration, and his genuine respect for the land."
