Fight leukemia with art

A couple weeks ago my friend Angelea reached out with the news that her father is beginning his fight with a newfound foe, leukemia. The news was unexpected and as Angelea prepared to head to be with her dad while he’s starting treatment right away. Angelea had one simple request while reaching out;

I thought it might be nice to decorate his hospital room with a bunch of photos so he has something beautiful to look at as he gets chemo the next month.

That request was an easy yes.
He starts chemo tomorrow

Decorated my Dad’s room with lots and lots of photos from around the world. Special thanks to my fellow photographer friends who sent me photos to print of their amazing adventures. These will sure be comforting and will allow his mind to wander to beautiful places when he starts chemo tomorrow and for the next month. ❀️

This lighthouse off the shore in Acadia Maine was from a multi-state road trip my best friend Mitch and I took for my 30th birthday. I still haven’t edited all the photos from that trip…

These are some of my most important personal photos to myself. I’m very honored if they’re inspiring to fuel the fight against that leukemia.
You inspire me ❀️

Shannon + Kenneth | Fellowship Bible Church wedding

β€œYou can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”
β€” C. S. Lewis

Such a sweet time with Shannon + Kenneth Friday at their wedding at Fellowship Bible Church.
They shared one of the most tear-filled and sweet first looks I’ve ever seen and had a fantastic time celebrating with their guests.

Shelby + Coleton’s leather wedding album

For a kid, those rainy days cooped up indoors can be some of the most taxing. You roam and play with every toy there is, watch TV and eat. This home is now a prison lol
Just then, little Johnny (or little Susie); “Momma, read me a book! Daddy, read me a book!”
“Of course!” Your heart leaps with joy πŸ™‚
Then, they see that really big book… Your wedding album.

Designing and making my couples wedding albums is by far some of the most important work I do, their kids and their kids-kids will one day hold these cherished memories in hand and be able to experience your wedding day for themselves.
It’s so rewarding, knowing that this work, my work, will last far beyond my own life.

This is why I choose only top quality albums, real Italian leathers and Japanese silks, true photographic paper that will not fade or discolor for over 100 years (thank you Kodak!).
This is why I take it so seriously, because you take it seriously. It matters.

Wedding day memories

Here’s an album I just finished for Shelby and Coleton from their beautiful wedding day.
When Shelby recieved it she text me:

Hey Micah! Just saw the album and it looks amazing! I love it so much and will cherish it forever! Thank you so much!

Wedding client text
Now when I get a text like that… Day made for sure!

Man, I love so much what I get to do!
Thank you, each and every one of you. You let me live my dreams.
I love you guys.

I’ve really been trying to push myself to get more creative and focus more on different and unique ring photographs at my weddings, I’m very pleased with this one.
