About Me

"There's no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box in your lap." - Kevin James

​Howdy! My name is Mike Wakefield & I'm a photographer based in the Hudson Valley of New York.

I found my love of photography while in college at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, and it quickly became my greatest passion. 

In 2017 after graduation, a friend and I went out on the road camping in a loop around the United States for 30 days. We went through 27 states, visited a handful of national parks, and created memories that will last a lifetime. It was the best month of my life, and I love exchanging travel stories with the couples I work with! 

​When I'm not photographing couples I love hiking, exploring new cities and towns, trying new pizza spots, and photographing fashion or commercial jobs. 

I have 2 family cats, Leo and Shelby, but I am a huge dog lover as well. If you have a dog and want to bring them to your session, just let me know and we'll find a way to accommodate!
