Who I am… I’m a photographer with a true passion and love for the art of photography and using it to tell the real story. I'm a passionate person who is head over heals in love with photography, my wife, two children, and electronic gizmos.

As a wedding photographer, I strive to capture every emotion of every wedding day in an creating and artistic manner. It’s my goal to collect a series of images that you will instantly connect with and that will be timeless in your family history. I hope that they will be enjoyed by generations to come.

Where I am… I am a Denver, Colorado-based photographer. However I am willing to travel just about anywhere in the state and even abroad if the call comes.

The gear… My primary digital camera is a Canon 50D. For weddings I usually us shoot with a Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens but I have several others. Read less

Mike did a great job with us. He had a few mix ups a long the way but we worked it out. Our engagement pictures came out great and so did our wedding pictures. I do wish he had gotten a few more shots with my mom while we were getting ready but other than that I really couldn't have asked for anything different from him. He did a great job, we will use him again in the future

Mike was fantastic to work with - on time, professional and the pictures turned out beautifully. The feedback I got the most from the wedding party and the guests was how excellent Mike was at providing direction for each of the pictures. I can tell you that to have someone take charge the day of the wedding without being overbearing is a really a skill -and to have the pictures reflect that is fantastic. We love our pictures and would highly recommend Mike for your event,

Mike Carrizales is an outstanding photographer! He photographed our wedding. When we received the photos, we were so impressed with the variety of shots Mike took from creative/artistic, to posed, to ones that were candid. As a bride, I truly appreciated all the pictures of décor and the room setting. These are many things that I did not necessarily notice being swept up with the whole day. It was nice to be able to experience my wedding again, seeing all these little details. Mike did an excellent job of taking the pictures we wanted. And I loved all the candid shots that caught those unexpected looks and moments. Our pictures are beautiful! Mike was truly professional and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend his services. Thank you again!!

Mike is the nicest photographer we spoke to when trying to find someone to do the pictures for our wedding. He is very accommodating, professional and went out of his way to travel and be a part of the event. I think the quality of his work reflects the fact he paid attention to what we, as the client wanted him to focus on. The pictures all came out lovely and personal and he didn't even bat an eye at the difficultly in wrangling a loud and rowdy wedding party. His turn around time was fast and his prices were very fair. I would book him again in a heartbeat!!

Mike did a wonderful job for our wedding! We got married at the Denver Zoo, so since the space was so huge we ran out of time before we could take all the photos we wanted, but the ones that we did get turned out great. The price is also fantastic, especially for the quality that you get. We also felt very comfortable around him. Fantastic photographer, especially for those on a tight budget!

We were so happy we chose Mike as our wedding photographer. He did an absolutely wonderful job from our first contact to the delivery of the photos. He was professional, friendly, easy to work with, and most importantly took fantastic photos that will remind us of our special day for the rest of our lives! :) We would hire him again in a heartbeat if we needed a photographer for another event. We would highly recommend Mike to be your photographer for your wedding or any other occasion you are celebrating.

We had the pleasure of working with Mike at our wedding & we were deeply impressed with his professional demeanor. He smoothly coordinated with us throughout the entire wedding, as well as with the other vendors at the wedding too. This seamless teamwork really helped to make our wedding flow nicely and we appreciated that quality. He listened to the types of photos we wanted & produced beautiful & creative memories for us on our special day. When we look through them it really feels like we are reliving those moments all over again. Some photos can feel too coached and arranged. There were plenty of organic/free spirited photos throughout the night & the family/group shots that we wanted. He has a real talent for this delicate balance that truly captures the event. His prices were very affordable compared to others and his work is top quality too! My husband and I couldn't be happier that we made the right choice in a photographer for our wedding day. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a professional photographer who feels more like a friend of the family - Thanks for everything Mike!

Mike is an awesome photographer - the ultimate professional. We did our engagement shoot in Manitou Springs, and requested various outdoor and indoor shots. We spent 2 hours walking around the town, with Mike patiently taking many candid and posed pictures. He was very willing to listen to our ideas, even letting us take some of the pictures with our dog. He captured so many wonderful pictures, had some very unique and clever ideas for pictures, and did so with a very "hey-let's-try it" attitude. His photo-journalistic and artistic photography style made for some positively AMAZING pictures. We'll treasure them always. Professional, personable, flexible, and SO very easy to work with, choosing Pixels by Mike was the best wedding-vendor decision we made!!!

Mike was an extremely professional photographer. The photos that he took for our wedding day were spectacular! I had already chosen a photographer prior to hiring Mike and had realized that the “friend deal” he was offering me was more expensive than a lot of the photographers we had looked at. My husband and I paid for our wedding with no help from family so we were looking for professional but inexpensive. Mike was PERFECT! He was on time to every meeting (and to the event) and he was more than I could have ever hoped for! Our pictures were amazing and I plan to hire Mike over and over again!!!

Mike was absolutely amazing at photographing our wedding. He was prompt, polite and gave great directions to a very nervous Bride & Groom which lead to stunning portraits. He captured even the smallest of details that I didn?t think anyone would have noticed, but meant a lot to us. Mike took very creative and unique photos throughout our ceremony and reception giving them the photojournalistic and artistic style we wanted.

Choosing Mike as our photographer was the best decision we made when it came to our wedding, I couldn?t have asked for more in a photographer.
I highly recommend him to every couple looking for a great wedding photographer.
