Michael's style can be described as emotional, high fashion, moody, and dramatic. His insight into bringing emotional images the day of the wedding speaks in his work regardless of the family dynamics. His studio provides a strong balance of photojournalism, unique artwork, and unique posing from both the pre-wedding and wedding events using both natural light and off camera lighting.

Brides that like our style can have Mike as their lead photographer or take advantage of our award winning staff photographers and receive additional incentives.

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)

This photographer is well worth the price. I searched through so many photographers websites and many of the pictures look the same; beautiful but standard wedding photos. Mike Purdy's photography captures so much emotion, I was immediately taken and reached out to him. Best investment we could have made. Our pictures came out beautiful!!! I can't say enough good things about this photographer. He is personable, professional and really put us at ease. I highly recommend this photographer! We had the wedding of our dreams and as you know, the day goes by so fast. Thanks to Studio Purdy, we have amazing, emotional pictures to look back on for the rest of our lives.

Mike and his team were great! From our first initial meeting with Mike, he walked us through the day of the event which really helped put a lot of things into perspective for my wife and I as far as timing and seeing how everything was going to flow. Mike and his team are professionals and I would highly recommend their service. Everything went well, very smooth, and the pictures were amazing in capturing not only the venue but also all the emotions we all experienced.

When my wife and I were searching for wedding vendors, we knew that a great photographer was on the top of the list, and Mike Purdy of Studio Purdy was our choice.
As a Director and Art Director, I’m well versed in the art of photography. In my professional life, I always valued the importance of a great photographer, and so it is in my personal life. To the task of finding our photographer, I brought years of professional experience. Our price range had a limit, but we refused to settle for less.
Here’s what we looked for and got from Studio Purdy-
• Talent: you either have it or you don’t. You will recognize it the minute you see his work and meet with Mike.
• Understanding the subject matter: from the location to the participants. We needed help feeling comfortable in front of the camera and Mike taught us how to do it.
• The importance of camera work: not just what the shot looks like after it’s Photoshopped in post. What does the shot look like in the camera lens? Mike has a great sense of cropping in the camera. He uses the environment around him to make the photograph more dynamic; foreground and background elements, exposure settings, angles (he was on the ground and hanging from windows to get amazing shots).
• Lighting, lighting, LIGHTING! So important, yet so overlooked. Most photographers just use available lighting, Mike is an artist that uses additional lights to paint his masterpieces.
• Assistant: it’s important to also work with a proven team. Mike and his associate Eddie, worked together flawlessly.
• Accessibility: before and after our big day Mike and his staff are always there for us. They are professional and organized and they never failed to return a text, call or email.
I’ve worked for over 20 years with hundreds of photographers, and I can say without hesitation that Mike Purdy is the best at what he does. Photography is more than getting the perfect shot, it’s capturing the moment.

Studio Purdy responded with the following comments:

Thank you so much Joe. I can't tell you how much of a joy it was getting to know you and your wife throughout the process. I too enjoyed working with the two of you and getting to know your family. You're wedding was so much fun! Can't wait for you to see the wedding album we're making for you. ; ) Mike.

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!
