About Michael

I spent more than a decade as a professional wedding photographer and photographed more than four hundred weddings before retiring to return to my first passion: Music Education. As a photographer, I was a ten-time winner of Best of Weddings in The Knot, and also a Couples’ Choice winner in Wedding Wire for many years. I had been an opera singer and stage director for nearly thirty years, but weddings ended up taking over during the 2010’s.

Now that I have returned to teaching, I simply don’t have the time to be a full time photographer anymore. But, I love weddings, and I love being of service to couples of all ages who are choosing to begin their lives together as partners in the beautiful bonds of matrimony.

I strive to provide my couples with an excellent experience from start to finish, helping to ensure their wedding ceremony reflects their personalities both as individuals and as a couple.

I am an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church. I conduct ceremonies for every loving and consenting couple who wish to marry in the state of New Jersey. My Services page shows the different types of services I provide. I am happy to answer any questions you have about the process of obtaining your license, and I’m happy to provide advice on reliable wedding venues and vendors.
