Falco is inspired by the unique personalities of each couple he works with, “I am capturing the emotion and feeling of the day in a natural, candid way."

An award-winning photographer, Michael Falco, has 25 years professional experience as photojournalist and is a frequent contributor to the NY Times as well as shooting fashion and beauty for publications like, Harper’s Bazaar and W Magazine. Falco centers his approach around a documentary style that captures his subjects in an honest, familiar light. Shooting a wide range of people from celebrities to salt miners, Michael has become an expert at putting his subjects at ease in front of the camera—a valuable asset in crafting genuinely beautiful wedding images. As a frequent contributor to The New York Times, many of Michael’s photos have become iconic around the world, including his images of 9/11. Falco is a New York City commissioned public artist, he installed a large-scale glass mural that graces the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, and in 2009 he published “Caddell Dry Dock: 100 years Harbourside” a book documenting one of New York Harbor’s last remaining ship repair yards.

The wedding day is a perfect story to tell

Currently, Michael is a writer for the Huffington Post blog based on photography. In addition, he has been working on a long-term project documenting Civil War battlefields from the artistically raw point of view of a pin-hole camera. Falco’s work on the Civil War sesquicentennial was inducted into the national archives at the Library Congress. WW Norton & Company will be publishing this in Falco’s book, “Echoes of the Civil War” in October 2016.

What's your inspiration when you shoot?

I draw inspiration from the couple. All people are different so I gauge the energy emanating from the bride and groom and work accordingly. Most important is for the couple to feel good, have fun and thoroughly enjoy their special day.
