Love these two wedding photographers from Wisconsin. Had a blast hanging with them...here's a few of my favorites from their wedding this past Saturday - http://www.mikeolbinski.com/theblog/2014/02/first-look-at-shannon-and-tjs-wedding-in-las-vegas/

Nothing is better than seeing a yard go from dirt to green in a matter of a few hours :) We did this to my house on Saturday, here's the resulting timelapse!
An enormous amount of lightning strikes hit the area just south of Casa Grande, including Arizona City and the Tohono O'odham Nation. This image is made up of about 30 separate photographs all stacked to show the amount of lightning that can hit in the same general area over about 26 minutes.

The Booker Supercell (more here: http://www.mikeolbinski.com/theblog/tag/booker) was undoubtedly ranked either 1 or 2 in my experiences as a storm chaser. My only wish is that we had gotten there a few moments earlier, but I'm pretty sure we saw the storm at it's best right before it started dying out. Here's a look at the storm as it was losing strength, finally passing over the town of Booker, Texas. Earlier in the chase we had been north of Booker, watching the storm move to the southeast...and then we raced south into town and blasted east to stay ahead.
This was one of the final moments of the storm before the sun was completely down and dark overtook us.

I love taking pictures… making pictures. Finding pictures in anything and everything. I’m self-taught and still learning which probably explains my unquenchable desire to grow and grow and grow.
I love candid photography. And I love merging that style with portrait photography. I was inspired years ago when my wife and I had an anniversary photoshoot, and I was blown away by how simple, yet powerful, the candid portrait can be. The style is sometimes called photojournalistic or journalistic portraiture. Whatever you call it, that’s how I shoot it. Kids, babies, teens, engagements, families, whatever the occasion, I love capturing those special moments for people where they can let their personalities and feelings shine through and create a keepsake that will last forever.
I love event photography. The same passion I have for candid pictures drives the fun I have shooting a birthday party, a baby shower, a church get-together, anything where people are gathered for a purpose. The images you capture at moments like these feel more real than almost anything else I photograph.
I love weather photography, landscape pictures and anything else that strikes me as being worthy of a shutter snap. There is no limit the things I find interesting. I’ve photographed flowers, buildings, mailboxes and a million other odds and ends. But when it comes to storms and weather, I have a deep desire to capture nature in all of its raw power and glory. After living here in Arizona my entire life, I’ve suddenly gone through a re-awakening when it comes to what’s around me. Arizona offers an amazing venue for lightning and summer thunderstorms. We also have an endless supply of natural beauty from the dry, desert floors to the snowy peaks of the northern areas. This state is gorgeous.
That’s who I am. I would love to get to know who you are. If you are interested in using me for your photography needs, just contact me. You can use the form below, it’s quick and painless!
