Michael Hacker Photography captures the joy, the wonder and anticipation of your new life with the most professional, elegant and beautiful wedding photography available.
photographic artist, specializing in wedding photography
Wedding photography has evolved considerably and has become a domain only professional photographers should venture into. Modern wedding photography is a competency that is learned through training, experience, making mistakes and learning from them, and the development of a sensitive and creative eye. In terms of cost; good wedding photography isn't inexpensive, it shouldn't be, you are commissioning a creative artist to deliver a work of fine art, packaged in a unique and elegant way that reflects the artistry and vision of the photographer. Wedding photographers of today must not only be good photographers, they must also be creative graphic designers; wedding albums are now works of fine art that are unique digital creations that include an array of beautifully designed pages with graphic elements that shape each layout. Their storytelling style is as sleekly designed as the latest issue of Modern Bride. Each album includes panoramic images, flush mount pages, picture on picture layering and book style binding. (see the wedding book) In regards to style of photography, modern brides understand that not only do you want elegant wedding portraits, they also understand the need for a combination of styles that includes both posed and photojournalistic wedding coverage that will enhance your wedding book. Our coverage always includes myself and my partner Brenda, so you have a two photographer team. In addition, all of our packages include an engagement session which includes your favorite image in an 11x14 print, mounted and matted as a "signature board" for your reception. (Note* If you don't need an engagement session, I will substitute for other products/images etc.) This session gives us a chance to get to know each other better which helps me understand your photographic needs. In addition, please note that any or all of your wedding images can be converted from color to black and white at no cost. If you're looking for professional, stylistic and unique wedding photography in the Portland Oregon, northern California and Washington area, please come see us. I am also available for destination weddings.
Philosophy, shooting style, creative ability and other considerations are difficult to discuss as every professional photographer has essentially the same basic philosophy; quality work at reasonable rates and good client care. With those factors being a given, I would like to talk about my vision of wedding photography. I believe that wedding photography must be approached in such a way that the art and science of photography are competencies that all wedding photographers who accept payment for their services posses. The ability to make quality images that posses exceptional exposure, dynamic composition, creative lighting and capturing the essence of the subject is essential. Those being the bare bones of quality photography are only the beginning, the photographer must begin a creative journey that will inspire the genesis of true artistry in their photography. The creative wedding photographer must always be looking for a unique and individualistic way to create images that invoke an emotional response in the viewer... in other words, creating true artistry. That is, the ability to create for the client, images that stand out from the rest, images that go beyond the typical. Since the advent of digital photography, most major markets are now saturated with wedding photographers, making it more difficult for the discerning couple to select a competent photographer for what is likely one of the most important days in their lives thus far. When viewing the galleries of the many photographers out there, look for images that spark an emotional response, images that say something to you. A wedding event can only be captured once. Don't wedding and bridal images deserve to be true fine art images.
All MHP Packages include a large Panorama Flush Mount Coffee Table Book like the ones depicted below. Definitely not your parents wedding album, these albums are fine art wedding books, made from Italian leather and are beautiful works of art themselves. Cover dimensions are 12x12, and when open, can contain a full 24x12 inch panorama photograph. We can also add text as well, such as the vows, a poem and so on. These are high end books indeed, and as you can see, they are flexible and provide for true picture on picture layering, as well as being a true flush mount and panoramic book with NO CENTER SEAM. They are truly awesome books. They are available in 24, 32, and 40 page books. Metallic printing also available, (if you have never seen metallic printing you will be amazed)
