What’s Our Story?

A dear friend of mine told me a story about how I could build a time machine with photographs. It's a wonderful tale. It's about how energy, love, and joy are captured and then designed into an exquisite and artistic time capsule that transports you back to relive the best times of your life. That time capsule is fueled by our cinematic photographs, highlight videos and hand-crafted storybooks. Clients have described our photographs as displaying a powerful sense of energy, excitement, art and exuberance. We like to think of them as breathtaking, just as a time machine should be.
Our photographs are your time machine.

I want you to have the most enjoyable experience collaborating with us. If you love photography, you've come to right place. If you are planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, you'll love our energy and experience which both emphasize the drama and storytelling importance of the Mitzvah right of passage. Planning a wedding? Our work experience with the Academy Awards means that your love story will be beautifully told in the most cinematic way possible. Thinking of creating a meaningful family portrait or a collection of timeless images of your children? I'm a family guy and a super fun dad - and that's why I connect so well with the families I photograph. You can feel comfortable knowing that we will get your family to love the camera as well as light up their spirit. We guarantee you will love your photographs!
The most important thing for our team at Michael Jurick Photography is to capture your memories in a way that transcend photographs to the level of fine art... and have fun while we do it.

Let's make photo mojo together! We'd love to hear from you.

Feelin' the Love

I have been following Michael’s work and think that he is absolutely the best photographer out there. I have spent time visiting your website as well as Michael's blog and the pictures are artistically breathtaking. I truly love the way he uses color and lighting to create the mood in all his pictures.

What a beautiful experience we had with Michael and Paolo. Unbelievable. We couldn't be happier, or feel more blessed to have had them there on such a special day. Honestly, it was as good as it gets.
Elizabeth Mann, client
These are gorgeous photographs, Michael! Best photoshoot we've ever had... by far.
Heather Cooper, Head of Content Marketing & Communications, MrGreen.com
BRAVO!!!!   Michael, these images are terrific AND captured the look of the party with the details we all worked so hard to execute.   You take amazing photographs under some of the toughest lighting conditions possible.  Frankly, I don’t know how you do it.   Thank you so, so much for sending.  BRAVO!!!
Dejuan Stroud, Event Designer

Michael's portrait, party, interior design, travel, mitzvah and wedding photography all result in stunning, vibrant and exuberant images that simply take our breath away. No one captures all of the exciting details of an event quite like Michael.
