About Mike Sears

I consider it an honor to have so many good people welcome me into their lives and to share in their wedding day. I just want to walk into every wedding with the viewpoint of a friend that has been welcomed in to this gathering, and do my very best to photograph what’s taking place there. 

With a background in writing, I took to photography as an extension of my pursuit of getting the story. I am constantly looking to capture spontaneous moments in a way that is authentic and timeless. My style is journalistic and classic. I like to capture the natural flow of the events, reactions, and emotions as they unfold throughout the day. I believe that photographs serve as your visual heritage long after we are all gone — images live on.

I live in Exeter, NH with my wife and daughter. I enjoy reading, documentaries, nature, New England, fly fishing, and too many podcasts to count.
