I’m Michael! I am a Portrait and Lifestyle photographer based out of Orange County CA, but love travelling to new locations to work with different clients. I have the wonderful opportunity to turn my passion of photography into a business and loving every minute of it. 

I live in Orange County CA with my wife, Melody and our two cats Cloudy and Monroe. Our cats actually have their own Instagram account at @CloudyMonroe. When not taking photographs, Melody and I love to spend time in Disneyland and enjoy looking for new and fantastic restaurants. If you have some restaurant recommendations, we would love to hear them.

Michael Boardman was amazing! This was the first time we did family photos and we could not be more pleased with how they turned out. The entire experience was enjoyable and he and his wife made us all very comfortable, including our seven year old daughter. Michael is a true professional and we truly enjoyed the experience and more importantly, we look forward to looking back on these memories for years to come!

Working with Michael was an absolute joy! He is a true professional and it shows in the final product of the photos! He even went the extra step in assisting me, via text message, when I needed help picking out the color scheme for the photos! He made such a great impact on my children that they keep asking when we get to take photos with him again! I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Michael is truly a professional photographer! He has an amazing eye to capture the most candid, real-life moments for any occasion. Whether it be a family portrait session, fashion photos, weddings, babies and kids or travel – you see the true feelings behind those photos! We love all the photos you have taken for us throughout the last 5+ years and your work always amazes me. He captures how we really feel and it never feels posed. Continue your craft – you have a remarkable talent!
