Michael S. Wade stands out as one of America's true wedding photojournalist. He has had his work published in nearly every wedding related magazine and is known for providing minimal to no direction to the subject he is photographing. He is documenting the real moments as they happen rather than trying to orchestrate the event to his liking.When it is time for those all important family shots Michael moves very quickly often needing less than 20 minutes to complete the posed shots. Most of his work is done with no flash and only using available lighting for a specific ambiance. When Wade does use lighting it is most likely a single flash either on his camera or placed somewhere in the room. Clients state how easy and relaxed the whole process was and how they never felt pushed to do anything.
