Your Moments, Your Memories, My Passion

I first picked up a camera at 15 years old on a cloudy day with my uncle. We were photographing osprey, and as I took a turn behind the lens one flew by with a fish in its talons. My uncle quickly pushed me into the dirt, grabbed the camera, and snagged the images. This dance repeated three more times before I finally said, “Dang it! I'm gonna nail that shot!”...

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Biomedical Engineering degree and freaking loved it!... My engineering background isn't made of lots of sexy skills: Organization, teamwork, problem solving, handling numbers, and maintaining deadlines, but they make for a super smooth operation.

I’m all about the process to get that final image, which is a lot like making cookie dough. We can’t make sweet, delicious yummy stuff (AKA awesome images) without putting together all the ingredients in the right proportions and order. The ratios of shutter speed, composition, posing, clothing, lighting, and more can change the entire experience of chowing down on that sugary goodness! To complete this analogy before you think I'm totally high on sweets, a lot of ingredients go in, but when you get it all baked together, my images are clean, crisp, colorful and implement dramatic lighting to set the mood. But like any good foodie or actor knows, the magic lies in the improvisation! I take some time in each of my sessions to try stuff that is totally out there so we get some truly unique images.

If my brand of goofy sounds like your cup of tea, then give me shout! I'd love to hear your story and hopefully get the opportunity to work with you.

 When you’ve been shooting for over 10 years, you pick up a couple of things; like the best clothes for engagement sessions, poses that flatter, how to conduct amazing sparkler exits, where your maid of honor or best man should stand for their speeches, that ladies should bring a spare set of flats to their portrait sessions, and how to predict and initiate the little moments that create those precious candid images. I’ll help you plan all of it.


Online Galleries: Your high-resolution, unwatermarked images are delivered in an online gallery within 3 weeks. Your gallery will have options for downloading your images and purchasing prints of all shapes and sizes. These are your images, enjoy them!

Okay, I was hoping for a bit more applause for that one. But on a more serious note, I bring my A-game to your session. You’ll get a photographer that is professional, punctual, fun, dedicated, and a bit goofy. I want to create your amazing images and I want you to enjoy the guy behind the lens too; creating a singular experience that you’ll love.

All the Tips and Tricks

HEAR IT FROM MY CLIENTS

Mike is an incredibly talented photographer, but what makes him stand out from other photographers is his personality and dedication to our shoot. Mike had millions of poses in mind, as well as jokes to keep us smiling and having fun, as well as keep the session moving. Mike spent several hours with us during our shoot, which was a night-time shoot. Knowing Mike personally, I know he's a busy guy. However, he committed a lot of time to edit our photos and provide us with our gallery within days of our shoot. He even sent us several preview photos of our shoot only hours after it was completed. I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a photographer. If you want a brilliant photographer who will make your session extremely fun, comfortable, and personalized, Mike is the man for the job!

I cannot express how much my fiance and I enjoyed working with Mike. He was the perfect combination of professional, relaxed, good-natured, very articulate with instructions while still completely open to suggestions from the couple, and just an incredibly nice person. We enjoyed our day with him both as clients and people. His turnaround time for our photos was amazing, and his overall communication throughout the whole process is unmatched. The photos came out wonderfully, and we cannot recommend Mike more to anyone looking for an affordable but high quality photographer.

As a model, I love working with Mike. He's super professional and fun to be around, and I never feel uncomfortable while shooting. He has a great command of lighting, and will do whatever it takes to get the best shot. The resulting photos are stunning.

Mike is an amazing photographer. He listened to exactly what I wanted for my pregnancy announcement photos, and man did he deliver! (Pun intended, ha!) I had a specific vision that I wanted for my pictures, and Mike completely brought my vision to life. He made it even better than I imagined. He was patient and listened to me, was willing to work with me to get the perfect shot. Not only that, but he is reasonably priced and has quick turn around time. I had my pictures back very quickly. My husband and I are completely thrilled! I would happily work with Mike again in the future, and I have already recommended him to several friends.

He was incredibly professional and patient with us during the planning phase to figure out exactly what we really wanted with photography. The day of the wedding he showed up earlier than he needed to just to make sure he was there on time, and he did a fantastic job organizing the photography process, including all of the family pictures after the ceremony. Finally, the actual pictures are amazing. We were hesitant to get a professional photographer due to the cost, but now that we have the end result we're incredibly happy that we did and would do the same thing again the next time.

Mike was amazing to work with for my wedding at Cloudland Canyon State Park. He was a great resource while we were planning our wedding and was always available and eager to help. Everyone enjoyed his presence during the day--he is extremely friendly, keeps things fun and light, stays on schedule, and was good at juggling his photography duties while being asked a lot of questions by curious nieces. All of my family and friends raved about him the day after the wedding. He maintained a perfect balance of seamlessly getting all the important moments without being intrusive. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Not only is Mike a great photographer, he is great with people. He took away so much stress of planning because he is focused and super experienced. Mike is also very flexible, we got together several times to make sure we would get all the shots we wanted and to go over how the day was going to go. He is quick to think of cool new ideas and is fast on his feet. We are more than happy with our wedding and engagement photos. We have everything from fun candids of our wedding party and guests to photos that are romantic and personal. Seriously cannot recommend him enough.

We asked Mike to do our Engagement Session and couldn't be happier! Mike was incredibly professional but still managed to bring excitement, creativity, and a comfortable atmosphere to our shoot. He was receptive to our ideas and suggestions and also had a great eye for clever framing that we would never have thought of ourselves. We did our shoot in the early evening, and Mike's ability to handle the quickly changing lighting was spot-on. And the photos - WOW! They look absolutely perfect. Not only that, Mike put together a very cohesive, consistent look that still had variety, so we have lots of very different shots to show off. Thanks Mike, we are incredibly happy!

Just want to share my thoughts about Mike's photography services. He shot my daughter's sweet sixteen with the utmost care and professionalism. He went the extra mile and photographed her morning at the salon; hair and makeup preparations. He was low-key and unobtrusive throughout the party and still took amazing pics of the entire event of over 100 people. The quality of the photos were crisp, clean, and creative. Turn around time for our digital copy was within a week. Unheard of! I recommend Mike for all your special moments. My guests from the party are already asking about his availability. Give him a call.

If you are looking for a professional photographer, call Mike Glatzer. I have used his services twice so far and couldn't be happier with the results. The first time was for my daughter's senior pictures. Mike was open to different location options, multiple outfit changes, and using props that we brought along (including a cello). He is a great combination of professional and laid back. You can tell that he knows his craft, yet he makes his subjects feel relaxed and comfortable. He doesn't make you feel rushed at all. The second time my family used Mike's services was for family photos. One of my daughters was moving out of state and we wanted some professional photos before she left. He made it happen for us on short notice. We had such a fun shoot, great candid shots, and much laughter. Mike responds in a timely manner to correspondence and gets edited photos back to you very quickly. I would recommend Mike Glatzer to anyone who is in need of professional photography service and will use him again in a heartbeat.
