GK, Principle Photographer
As I stare at my computer screen attempting to sum up last 2 decades of being a professional photographer for this bio, I am amazed by all the memories that I have stored in my thoughts. I am blessed to do this for a living. I see life in a different way than most people. I see all the colors, the moods of where the shadows lie and the shapes and lines of everywhere God’s light touches. Learning how to create with the camera has taken many years of training and hard work, but the real reason why I love my job is one simple thing…people. People create the moments that are worth capturing and sharing with the rest of the world.
When a bride sheds a tear at the altar and her groom is quick to wipe her tear with his finger, I live that moment with my eyes and my emotions tell my fingers to capture this moment. People create food that is a work of art. People build the buildings that stun us with their designs , people have little adorable babies that laugh and cry, people invented the camera which became the tool in which we share all of these images.
If you take away all of the accolades, the celebrity clients, the backstage passes, and the years of experience, I am left with the first original reason why I love my job. It’s all about the person in front of my lens. People make moments happen. I just squeeze the shutter.

How Mike's love for photography began
Well ever since I was little my Granny Kat had a camera around for family gatherings. She would always make (and I stress MAKE) everyone line up for a group photo, but it was never just one! Fast forward to Christmas 2004. My dad received a Nikon D70 as a gift. This was the first time I held a digital SLR, and definitely the first time I got to play with one. While he was inside entertaining guests I went outside, fiddled with the settings, and somehow managed to slow down the shutter to create these crazy (ugly) images of the night sky. I just thought that was the coolest thing! Over the next year I used that camera so much I would find myself waking up next to it! I've been building and learning ever since.
I love the story of weddings. How the bride and groom met and fun details like how they managed to plan a wedding while living on the opposite sides of the country. I love learning about how they came to choose their bridal party and all the experiences that have brought them together. Everyone's story is different; everyone's journey is different. I love having the ability, and being given the opportunity, to help them remember this step in their journey for years to come.
Stacie, Social Media
Stacie is our social media queen!
As you know, we are in a social media world and keeping up with it all takes a lot of time. I was very happy to hand over my duties to Stacie because she is simply excellent at everything she does professionally. She is the perfect addition to the GK team because she adds her flare for the romantic in every blog post. Her attention to details and unique finds of sincere quotes from authors just seems to put the final spice to the thread. Elizabeth and I appreciate her fantastic attitude and talent for always making something simple so many times better!
