Tell us a little about yourself.
I am relatively new to Nova Scotia (3 years); my family and I moved out here for work opportunities. I have an amazing 15-year-old daughter that is my heart. I have a background in Network Engineering; I Love to know how things work and how to fix them if they are broken in a network environment.
What inspired you to begin wedding photography?
I kind of fell into it. I was at a Photography conference in PEI and one of the other photographers there ran into an issue with his 2nd shooter; I was at the right place at the right time. I assisted for a few years with him and learned a great deal of the wedding photography business from him.
How long have you been in business?
I started doing photography in 2014.
Do you do Photography for a living?
I currently do photography for an extra income. I manage a handful of tech companies throughout the USA full time.
Describe your photography style.
I would say I love to have a moody style. I love the dark of the shadows to the lights in the highlights. I do also like to have a journalistic approach as well. I like to be not seen but I am there capturing those crazy amazing moments that last you a lifetime.
Do you have an assistant on the wedding day? If so, why?
It is dependent on the wedding itself. If it’s a short ceremony I will more than likely do it by myself. I do have access to assistants if needed.
How important is Photoshop in your final images?
I feel that it does add to the final images but I do like to try and get it right in camera first. Yes, I use Photoshop to enhance but I do like to have a minimalist approach as well.
Where would be your dream destination to photograph?
I would love to do a wedding in the Swiss Alps. To have the majestic Madaor Mountain Peaks in the background would be amazing.
Do you offer customizable packages?
Yes, we do offer customizable packages. you just let me know what you are looking for and I will work to try and offer it if possible. I am there to cater to the bride and groom on their special day.
"On July 18th, I celebrated one of the happiest days of my life and married my husband. We had the privilege of having Mike as our wedding photographer. He is extremely professional, courteous, respectful and most importantly understanding. Mike is quick to respond, usually within the same day. He is such a pleasant, genuine and helpful professional. I am truly blown away by my wedding photographs, they are absolutely perfect! He knows exactly how to capture the emotions of joy, laughter, and love. Mike went out of his way weeks prior to our wedding to ensure the perfect location. He gets enthusiastic about different shots and lighting which let me know he is passionate and wants to capture the best shots possible for you. He took the time to get to know our family and friends; making us extremely comfortable with him. He even went out of his way and surprised us at our hotel rehearsal and dinner to capture the hours leading up to our special day! Mike’s breathtaking talent will forever allow us to relive our wedding again and again! If you’re reviewing this; don’t hesitate, stop and contact Mike you won’t regret it! "- Trina Procure
