He has done work for NOFW, NYFW, Miami Swim Week, BET Awards, Steve Harvey Neighborhood awards, and worked with a number of Agencies. After being appointed one of Louisiana’s top Fashion photographers, Mike started to branch out, helping models take their portfolio to the next level. His persistent hard work and dedication is used to make women feel beautiful and embrace being Unique. As humble as he is, his creative mind surpasses the generic standards of photography here in southwest Louisiana. He has worked consistently to help build his, as well as others, portfolio.

His goal is to take some of the stress off of the bride by being there to capture their most precious moments and make her feel like a queen on her wedding day.
