Your Vacation Photographer in Chicago: Meet Michael

Michael is available for shoots all over Chicago for minimum 60-minute bookings, and is able to travel to the Greater Chicago Land area for minimum 2 hour bookings.

I'm the best friend you didn't know you had, wrapped in a professional photographer you didn't know you needed! My photography style has always been to tell the story unfolding before me. I love a good story and know the best are those shared with family and the closest of friends when they gather to celebrate.

Three Things

  1. No matter what I am wearing I will lay down in the mud if I think the angle provides the right amount of creativity!
  2. Photography is a big part of my life so when I am not shooting I race to spend time with my wife and daughter. They are the reason I love what I do and give me the proper support to let me do it.
  3. I dance with my daughter every day.

Favourite Spot to Shoot in Chicago
I love Lincoln Park during spring and summer. Tons of foliage help to make for epic shots.
