Monterey County, Bay Area, Central Coast, & beyond!
My legal first name is Michael-Angelo (yes, like the ninja turtle), but Michael is totally fine with me. I was born in northern California, then raised in on the central coast, and went to college in southern California. So long story short, I'm a California native through and through. Monterey County is home base for me and honestly it amazes me everyday, considering how geographically smaller it is compared to other regions of California.
I get to work in one of the most beautiful landscapes in this country and I will never have a reason to complain. With that being said, my photography emphasizes couples in this landscape. Posing couples is not my main objective, but we all need a little direction every once in a while and that's totally okay too! Of course, I'll tell Uncle Dave to tuck his shirt in on the group family photo on your wedding day, but other than that I'm really looking for genuine candid moments. Sure, "staging" moments are great for social media posts, but I also think that the way you remember your wedding day is also essential. You don't want your memory of your wedding to be some photographer who was shouting commands up until dinner time. I'm a true "people watcher" and I like for moments to unfold in front of me, which means 100% of the time during your wedding day I'm tuned in to everything that's going with you and the people around you.
If my style and approach piques your interest, by all means send me a hello and let's talk about your wedding!
