When it comes to choosing a photographer in Sacramento for the most unforgettable moments of your life, it can sometimes feel overwhelming. In a world where it's become easy for photography to be defined by the latest Instagram filter, the right professional photographer can really stand out. That’s why I pride myself on a mixture of tradition and technology, using timeless techniques that allow me to truly label myself as a professional, while utilizing all the latest technology, equipment and software.
My name is Mike Lukin, and I’m a Sacramento wedding photographer who’s ready to capture your big day.
From traditional weddings to destination weddings, multicultural, and everything in between, it’s always a joy for me to be a part of such a special moment between two people. It’s my goal to capture your love story in all of its essence, from traditional posed to more candid moments, and of course, a style that fits your unique tastes, from vintage to crisp and clean. I love being able to develop a relationship with the couples I’m shooting. Not only does it make us all more comfortable, but once the big day actually arrives, it will help you to feel more candid in front of the camera, so you can really be yourself. After all, these are memories you’ll be looking back on for the rest of your lives - it’s important that they capture the real ‘you’, both individually, and as a couple. This can go well beyond your wedding day, too! I also offer engagement shoots, rehearsal , ‘trash the dress’, and more. Feel free to get in touch with me when it comes to your specific needs.
I’m a very hands-on photographer from start to finish: I really enjoy meeting with the couples I’m working with ahead of time, and can even give advice on other vendors like DJs, videographers, makeup artists, catering, etc., based on my experience. I make it a point to fully immerse myself in each event, but stay out of the way so I’m not a distraction. I do all my editing myself with the latest advancements in software and technology, and it’s my passion to make every single photo tells a great story.
In my spare time, I really enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family - my wife, and our two children. Family, faith and friendship are all very important to me. I love traveling, being outdoors, and trying different cuisines. Photography has always been my strong passion, though, and I feel lucky every day to be able to do what I love, and capture the biggest moments in people’s lives. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer in the Sacramento area who will work with you to share your love story and beyond, please, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you, and working with you!
