Why should a bride and groom choose you for their wedding photographer? There are lots of reasons but mostly it’s because it feels like a good fit. At Images by Daniel Michael each of our couples has all the advantages of a larger studio with added experience, back up options in case of sickness or injury to a photographer and the blend of styles that comes with having input from so many different photographers. At the same time, it’s absolutely critical that they have a personal connection and experience with their team. That’s why each of our teams personally handles each appointment and engagement session once they’ve been chosen. It’s the best of both worlds. Every photographer has their own style but here, each photographer not only has their style but they also have the structure and core values of our entire team.

Samuels and Berding worked together in the information technology field for many years, and in July 2004 their friend and colleague, Keith Noble, died suddenly while on vacation with his family. Samuels said she and her brother decided the best way to honor their friend was to organize a memorial golf outing and raise money for charity. She said they borrowed the poster boards used at Noble’s funeral that featured photographs chronicling his life and displayed them near the registration table at the inaugural outing.

I have always been fairly 'artsy' throughout the years. My major was Graphic Design, but I also painted in my spare time. It wasn't until my honeymoon that I realized how addicted I was to a camera. We bought a nicer camera and took over 500 photos during our week on St. Thomas. Only two or three of those photos had Geoff or I in them. After that I trained under another wedding photographer and realized this was something I really enjoy. (You can go on my About Us page on my website to read a good synopsis of my start in photography).
