Mj's Personality

Mj is so much fun and loves to keep his clients smiling and having a great time while he is photographing or filming their big day. He is silly, fun and puts everyone at ease instantly, while in his presence. While also being silly and fun, he is also a highly technical and skilled professional who will make sure to capture your moments with care, while providing a fantastic wedding day experience.

Mj's Photographic |Film Journey

A  seasoned veteran within the film & photography industry, with more than 20 years behind the camera, MJ is a University of Minnesota Alumni, with advanced studies in film and photography, who has directed and produced several Independent films, more than 500 weddings, and  numerous commercial projects. MJ's talent behind the camera is multifaceted as he is both a Master Level Photographer and Cinematographer.  So whether you need one or the other . . . he is your man to make sure your wedding day is fully covered. 

MJ is also a calming force on every photo shoot, live-event, and film set. Our clients absolutely love him, and love working with him, and we hope you will too.

Mj's Style

His keen sense of visualization, continuity and style for every project is top notch, and his goal is to produce a final product which not only brings a great sense of reward to the client, but also a sense of pride within him, knowing he has created something beautiful and meaningful, that will last forever. He prefers a more natural journalistic style of capturing your wedding day, with limited posed set-ups.

His Hobbies | Interests

In his spare time you can find MJ in the great outdoors with his daughter,  trekking through nature - capturing its beauty through the lens, and teaching her to see beauty all around.  One of his favorite things to do is head up to the North Shore of Lake Superior and spend days taking breathtaking pictures of nature.  His other hobbies include music (if he wasn't in film, he definitely would have been a DJ), collecting Star Wars memorabilia, training (runner), baseball and sports fanatic, and researching the latest techie gadgets. He has enough energy for 10 people, and the guy can run circles around even the most energetic person.  He is like the ever-ready battery bunny running to and fro on a wedding day. But man can he get things done!
