Being a wedding photographer has been one of the greatest privileges of my working life. I don’t think that I have been to a wedding in the past 20 years where I wasn’t deeply moved at some point during the day. And, to this day, many of my wedding clients remain my close friends.
At my core, I am a documentarian, so I always look for what is ‘real’ in people and the world around me. My approach to wedding photography skips on all of the gimmicks and trends and focuses on what is timeless: intimate portraits documented in rich, classic tones. As you may have noticed, I don't have an instagram account for my wedding work and I do absolutely zero marketing. I never have. Branding and sales have never held much interest for me. Rather, my clients principally come to me through direct referrals. And, unlike many wedding photographers, I limit the number of weddings that I take in a given year. Rather, I focus on a few couples and pour my soul into their wedding day. My deepest goal is that you will simply love your images and that they will be a cherished heirloom in your family for many years to come. Quality, integrity, and character are at the core of my work and who I am.
My wedding packages begin at $3,200. Send me an email through the form below or by simply write to me at . I will write you back with details on my packages and availability. And I will never try to sell you on my work. If you think I am a good fit for your wedding day, great! If not, I am happy to advise on photographers that may fit what you are looking for.
And, if you are interested in my documentary work or various awards, you can see more of it here:
“Mike was extraordinary. We felt the most confident about him during the process and he inspired calm even during the wedding. The brevity of this comment is inversely proportional to the significance of this comment, which may already be obvious, but probably will be clearer on the other side of your wedding day.”
“Mike is a world-class photographer. His pictures are truly a work of art. He is easy to work with, professional, and absurdly talented. We highly recommend him. We couldn't be happier with his work and we will cherish our pictures for years to come.”
“We had excellent wedding vendors, but Michael O. Snyder was hands down the best. From the get go Mike was communicative, responsive, and very focused on giving us beautiful professional photos that were customized to the look-and-feel we wanted.”
