Mike started his photography career in 1998 when he worked as a stock photography agent representing some of biggest names in photography. He worked for the prestigious "Stock Market Photo Agency" out of the Beverly Hills office and would represent photographers to ad agencies, art directors, and creative directors with the intention of negotiating the rights to use the images in various ad campaigns and design projects. He fell in love with photography and developed a keen eye as he witnessed which images drew in the largest invoices and with that experience started developing his own style. His approach to photography leans towards high fashion, photojournalistic concepts rather than traditional posing. His company services all of Los Angeles and surrounding counties and also specializes in destination weddings around the globe. Mike also holds memberships with the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International, (WPPI), and the Professional Photographers of America, (PPA) Read less

If you're looking for an amazing wedding photographer then Studio Purdy is the company for you! For my wedding I did a tremendous amount of research, hopefully my research will help you. Mike the owner of Studio Purdy is amazing no egos or attitudes here, very helpful and willing to help you get the vision that you're looking for. Mike and Jason were great to work with, we had a journey together from our engagement shoot to the wedding. They give great tips on how to pose and stand, after the engagement session I felt like a supermodel and looked like 1 on my photos as well B-) I would truly like to recommend Studio Purdy for your wedding photos if you want to look as if you were in a Elle magazine. My wedding photos will go down in history with my family and friends as the best they've ever seen, go with the best!

Mike went above and beyond for my destination wedding in Italy. Not only did he battle the embassy to get there, he tolerated my crazy family and wedding schedule once he arrived. I wanted photos in my dress with two hair styles, which he graciously accommodated. He managed to even make me and my (now) husband look and feel like models - not an easy feat when working with goofballs!

I have actually have had the honor of working with Mike in the wedding industry in my profession, and have to say, I am so happy I drug him all the way to Italy with me! Not only did I bring him for his professionalism and expertise in wedding photography, he also happens to be a lighting genious (which came in handy when we were running late and the sun went down!). He fit right in with the family and became apart of the many memories from the trip.

As you'd imagine, in choosing a destination wedding, photos are all that much more important to me and my family and I am confident I made the best choice when choosing Mile Purdy as our wedding photographer! Highly recommended!

I simply do not have the words to describe how overjoyed we are with Mike's work. He is a true master, and we cannot believe what beautiful images he captured of our wedding. We will have them to treasure for a lifetime!

We had the honor of having Mike Purdy photograph our wedding at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach in August 2014. I spent months and months searching for the perfect photographer that could document our day. I wanted a high fashion editorial look, and I also wanted someone who could capture the special, emotional moments of our day. Mike's portfolio spoke volumes, and from the very first moment I contacted him, I could tell that he took personal pride in giving the highest quality service. He spent almost an hour talking to me during our initial consultation about his experience and what he could offer if we selected him as our wedding photographer. What stuck with me the most was that Mike truly cared about OUR vision and what we wanted -- he wasn't dictating what he wanted to do or what his style was. This showed me that Mike is a truly versatile and highly talented photographer, who can bring almost any vision to life.

Flash forward, and Mike was responsive, dedicated, and present throughout all the lead-up towards the wedding day. He took the time to meet with us and plan out a schedule, to make sure we didn't waste any precious time on the day of. What incredible service!

True to form (and plan), Mike was EXCEPTIONAL on our wedding day. He worked tirelessly, he posed us expertly, and he kept us happy and excited the entire time. Mike's personality really shines and helped to make our wedding day even more special. He set up some truly magnificent off-camera lit shots for us along the beach, and everyone at our wedding was raving about Mike afterwards.

Flash forward to when we got our photos back from Mike: they literally took our breath away. Pure magic. Thank you, Mike for giving us a lifetime of memories.

When it came to planning our wedding, we agreed that the most important element of our day would be photography. We are so grateful that our search led us to Michael Purdy. He was the first and only photographer we met with. He has the artistic eye we were looking for and we could not be happier with our photos. From our initial meeting, we knew we wanted to work with him. He has a clear vision of what desirable, emotional, creative wedding photography should be. He was fantastic to shoot with and put us both at ease throughout the entire day. He made taking picture after picture after picture so much fun! He also put together a day of timeline and gave us options of how we wanted to go about certain key moments during our day. It was really nice to have someone guide you through the entire process and give you their expertise. If you are looking for a hugely talented photographer who will not only turn out beautiful photos but provide a fantastic wedding day experience, book Studio Purdy! You will not be disappointed.
Thanks Mike!

Mike was a dream to work with. My husband and I were both a little uncomfortable about having our pictures taken, but Mike made us feel comfortable right away. We did an engagement session to get to know him and the photos came out beautifully. The day of the wedding he showed up right on time, 7 hours before the ceremony started, and took beautiful detail shots. Our first look and the session with my husband and I are some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. Everyone looks beautiful in our wedding party photos and all the candids from the ceremony and reception are perfect. His attention to detail and styling is unmatched. Mike stayed 12 hours and got truly incredible shots of all the events at the reception, plus some beautiful night shots of my husband and I. Everyone has been blown away by his work and we couldn't be more happy. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who's looking for a photographer for any special event.

Words can not express the beauty, raw emotion and the story that is told with Michael's photography. There are many photographers and many do a great job but Michael has a precious gift of seeing things that no other can see and captures moments that will never be forgotten and admired for years to come.

My husband and I have a story of love, laughter, and beauty of our weeding which has been brought to life and captured by Michael's precious gift of an artists eye.

We will forever be grateful to you Michael and your staff for making our beautiful day more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
