Goals. It’s what drives us. It’s what moves the needle upon humanity. For 2017, I succeeded in being hyper-focused on a just a few things. They were simply: 1) deliver client books FAST, 2) install art in the heart of the home, and 3) offer world-renowned fashion and sports pre-shoots so that I can be part of your family’s milestone even when I’m not available on your event date.
My experience competing at the Maccabiah Games in Israel taught me that to go higher, you must do better and to do better, we must do it together… as a team.
As we all know, there is no “i” in team and I’m grateful for everyone on our team who made 2017 spectacular.

FASHION / SPORTS PRE-SHOOT
These images become ICONIC design for your event. Our fashion and sports pre-event shoots are the start and the art of your event. Any 12 year old will tell you, “I want Michael Jurick!” We travel to the hippest locations and hollywood-light each set. The finished photograph becomes wall art, fine art, Instagram art and even magazine cover art.
I am amazed by the invitation that @redblissdesign created – a fashion magazine inspired by my photographs from @haleybrettt’s #photoshoot… Check out the repost video of the invitation below, so cool! #Repost @redblissdesign ・・・ So excited to finally be able to share this super cool invitation with you for @haleybrettt!

I’d like to make special mention of “night shoots.” When the sun goes down, we create magic after dark.
EVENT PROFESSIONAL SHOWCASE
We are so grateful to work with so many talented artists, caterers, creatives, producers and planners in this industry. It’s a pleasure to collaborate to create beauty and joy for our clients.
We all love to party. I get to go to a party each time I go to work We make your parties look incredible, because after the lights go down, our photographs are all that remain. They are your time machine transporting you back to the night of your life.
Many of you know my daughter Eden is my muse and loves pictures as much as I like taking them. We are a perfect team. After international fashion shoots throughout the year, I have quite a few gems that rarely see the light of day. Here’s a few nice ones worthy of the blog. Thinking about putting together a show simply called the Garden of Eden. :)
Throughout the year we get to experience some really cool things. My main wingman Nathaniel Johnston is quite the gadget guy and at Jack Pilot’s BM this summer he blasted off his new drone to capture the Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club at sunset. I love these!
This past year, I’ve photographed some truly beautiful moments and I’m deeply grateful for those opportunities. I took my kids to Coachella, photographed yoga in the clouds of Aspen, won a medal for tennis in Tel Aviv at the 20th quad-annual Maccabia Games, private-toured the exclusive Meyerhoff art collection, and documented my wonder woman wife’s incredible 50th, photographed my sAVAge neice’s BM in 111 degree heat in Florida, and sipped red wine in Tuscany with my family for my mother-in-law’s 70th. Strong family bonds really is the gift of life – treasure it.
CHEERS TO 2017
As per tradition, here are a few of my favorite photos from 2017.
As always, thanks for touring my year in pictures. Huge thanks to everyone on our team – Adri Hidvegi, Nathaniel Johnston, Mike Reid, Bia Sampaio, Joe Spiteri, Mark Sweeney, Kali Ventresca and of course the wonder woman herself, my wife Gal. This is not an easy thing to produce each year and I simply hope that you enjoy looking as much I enjoy creating. Please share or leave a comment on Facebook at the link here – Thank you!
