What is the process like?
I work closely with my couples to understand their vision and bring it to life. It all starts with a meet up (Skype or in-person) to get to know each other and swap stories. Let's be friends!
Once we know we are a good fit, you secure your date with a signed booking package and retainer fee. I'll share with you my wedding planning tips and provide unlimited consultation.
Whether you're dreaming of beautiful golden-hour portraits, or a photo of Grandma kicking it on the dance floor, I'll help you plan the photography timeline accordingly.
Where are you based?
I live on Winnipeg on the prairie plains of Manitoba, Canada. I was born and raised in Rep of Ireland and have since slowly made my way across to Canada. Apparently I’m crazy for making the move from such a beautiful country and YES it sure is beautiful…it’s my island.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! I love to explore other parts of the country and the rest of the world. I'm happy to add your destination to my travel itinerary and will work with you to make a custom package that works for your wedding. I offer discounts if your wedding is in a place I've been dying to get to, so get in touch and get me to the chopper.
What is your shooting style?
My background is in fashion and photo journalism, and my shooting style reflects that. I specialize in telling the story of your day, from beginning to end. On the day, you'll find me where the action is, capturing those magic moments as they happen. During the portrait part of the wedding day I help direct you, keeping things fun and comfortable, and capturing your interactions.
Do you use backup gear?
Yes, always. I shoot Nikon and Fujifilm. I bring an array of cameras and lenses, batteries and memory cards, and the photos are backed up immediately after your wedding. We are hybrid shooters and love busting out some old school film for your special day.
When will we receive our images?
I will post a few sneak peak photos to my website and social media accounts a few days after your wedding. This way you have something to share with your friends and family right away. You will receive your digital, edited files between 8- 10 weeks of your wedding day, via an online gallery.
What are your rates?
Local weddings start at $2500
Out of state weddings start at $3400
Elopements start at $2000
Portraits & Engagements start at $250
Do you offer albums and prints?
I sure do! We offer a wide selection of prints, albums and other products from our lab in the states. Clients will get an emailed link to their gallery with store included. Simple stuff.
How can we book?
Let's get to know each other! Tell me a bit about yourselves, your plans and what's inspiring you aesthetically so I can get a sense of your vision. This way we can make sure we're a good fit for before we start. Once that is taken care of, I require a 50% retainer fee and a signed contract - and we're ready to go!
KIND WORDS from my awesome clients
mEGHAN + GRAEME - Destination wedding (Mexico)
We had the pleasure of working with Michael for our engagement and wedding photos. He traveled with us to the family cabin in the Whiteshell as well as to the beautiful, secluded beach of Las Caletas in Mexico. Michael makes you feel so comfortable, making us laugh and working on our awkward poses! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and Michael captured it incredibly. Now we can look back on those pictures and remember details that otherwise would have long slipped from our memories. It's like being transported back in time to our perfect day. Michael's photography will line the halls of our home forever. We cannot thank you enough.
Danielle + Ryan - the millennium centre
Michael Scorr is one of the most naturally talented photographers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Our first shoot with Michael was our engagement photo shoot. What he captured was magical and he also captured our hearts with his sweet demeanor and his passion for what he was doing. Since then he has photographed our wedding social, wedding invitations, my bachelorette party, our wedding, newborn shoots with both of my children, several family shoots and my mother also flew him to Mexico and Calgary for both of my brother’s weddings....yes he is just that good. Michael has single handedly captured all of the most beautiful moments in my life and will continue to capture all of the beautiful moments in our future. He is the best of the best!! All of our love Michael.
jEANNINE + cRAIG - Lakeview Hecla Resort
Michael did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding and engagement photos! He made us both feel so comfortable which lead us to just enjoy the biggest day of our lives so much! Everything just flowed so well and he managed to capture our natural selves. Now when we look back on the day we are reminded just how beautiful and magical that day was and also how happy my wife and I are together! He captured everything we wanted and went above and beyond to scope out particular locations and took everything into account (wind, lighting, etc). Without a doubt the most professional yet relaxed photographer we have ever encountered. So organized and so detailed, not only on location, but his editing is second to none! He made the entire experience fun and kept us loose the whole time! If you need a photographer, for anything, he’s your guy! Thanks for everything Michael!
krissy + Robert - Ashgrove Acres Wedding
I don't think I need to say much about your skills Michael, your quality of pictures and attention to detail is more than adequately shown in your work. It's how we found you. But what the pictures don't show are all the other incredible qualities you have as a photographer. Your Patience, character, easy goingness and not to mention your ability to control the masses. We couldn't have gotten luckier with our photographer Michael Scorr. We loved ALL the pics you took of us. I promise you won't be disappointed if you choose Michael Scorr Photography. He truly is the best in the business.
