About Me

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

I found my love of photography in college at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, and it quickly became my 2nd greatest passion. My true greatest passion is pepperoni pizza (hence my pepperoni pizza slice tattoo).

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

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

If you’ve got travel stories, I wanna hear them!

Leo is an absolute dick but I think he's the most handsome cat in the world.

You might see some scratches on my hands because when he lays on me like this I can't help but pet him. He does not like it. 

I have 2 family cats - Leo and Shelby.

Shelby, on the other hand, is a total sweetheart and lays on her back begging for belly rubs all day. What a life, right?

Just because I have cats doesn’t mean I don’t love dogs though, If you’ve got a dog PLEASE bring them to our session if possible!

​When I'm not photographing couples I love exploring the mountains, checking out new cities and towns, getting pizza from multiple places in one day just because I want to, and photographing really dope fashion concepts.
