to live... to love


Your wedding... the most important day in your life. The day, the food, and the party are ephemeral, but the images will last you a lifetime.

Having a team of top international photographers shoot your wedding ensures you will have memories to cherish and share; memories that reflect your style and your personality.

No second shooters: you get two first shooters! Michael Willems and one of his carefully selected colleagues, including Melony McBride, Trish Beesley, and selected others, will ensure that you get top results. Internationally experienced professional wedding, event, portrait, family, art and fashion photographers, Michael and his team will take care of getting you the pictures you want, while you concentrate on your wedding.

We shoot in the style that best reflects your personality. From “vibrant and edgy” to “candid” to “traditional and simple”, the shoot is all about you and your style, your personality, your life. We have not one style but many, and your wedding will be photographed in yours.

To live... to love. Let us help share this most important event in your life.

We are not the cheapest photographers - but you will get great results. Price is an important part of an arrangement (see our pricing, which starts at around $3,000), but so are equipment, reliability, experience, knowledge, and professionalism. Come to us if you need quality and reliability - and for a team that will reflect your individual. It’s in safe hands with us.

We will get to know you before the wedding.  To obtain truly excellent results, we listen closely to your requirements; but also, we get to know what makes you tick. To ensure that our work reflects your personality and that of your spouse, we talk in depth prior to the event. This is all, of course, part of the fee.

We use the best equipment. Both to ensure best results and to make sure we can handle any eventuality, we only shoot with large professional cameras and lenses. We carry backups for everything we use. We can handle any situation or need.

Michael Willems is an experienced news, event, model, wedding, art, and portrait photographer who has
worked all over the world, who shows his photographic art at regular exhibits, and who teaches photography subjects across North America and Europe. His newspaper and event photography experience ensures that you will always see great results even in sub-optimal circumstances.

My assistants, helpers, and carefully selected additional shooters are all hand-picked and great at their jobs, and they will ensure that everything goes smoothly on the day.

Everyone’s a pro, and every wedding has Michael as one of the shooters present. Find out how to make your wedding last forever: come meet us and see if we are a good fit.
