I'M MIKE ARGENTO, WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN BUFFALO, New York.

Being a wedding photographer has enriched my life in ways I couldn’t have anticipated. For 15 years, my work has truly been a labor of love. I've been fortunate enough to meet so many beautiful people and it has influenced me to believe with certainty that life is beautiful. Back when I started photographing weddings, I was a touring musician in a garage rock band. In fact, I'm a much better musician than photographer, but don't worry...I'm THAT good on the piano and drums. Fast forward to today. I've mastered the rhythm and tempo of a wedding day, allowing me the freedom to focus on people and document the moments they've invited me to be included in. Let's connect so we can discuss your wedding plans and learn more about each other. I look forward to hearing from you!

 
 
We’re so grateful to Mike for capturing our day. He did so while making us laugh and feel comfortable, which made all the difference. Mike is great to work with, as he is patient, flexible, and provided great direction when we needed it. He never once made us feel rigid or overly posed. We mentioned to Mike that we would love to make it to some of our cocktail hour...well, he knocked out our formal family photos in under 10 minutes (no simple task), allowing us to participate in our cocktail hour and mingle with guests, which we are extremely grateful for. We couldn’t be happier!

Simply the most stress free and joyful experience we could have asked for. The wedding pictures are stunning and will be with us the rest of our lives... It just couldn’t have been more perfect.

Mike was very accommodating from start to finish regarding our wedding photography. He was always quick to respond to a question, helped with timing logistics on the day of, had easy-to-navigate payment options —you could pay your invoices online, which was wonderful—, and above all else, took amazing, creative and classic photos that we will treasure for years to come. Can’t recommend Mike Argento enough!

We were highly impressed by Mike’s “down to earth” personality which made us feel comfortable throughout the whole experience. Mike was so flexible with us for our engagement photos, as we wanted to have them taken in Geneseo, NY (where we met). He charged us for the photo session and only gas money to get out there (about 1.5 hours from Buffalo). We received the high-quality photos within a month. For our wedding, we experienced high winds and hail! Mike was so go with the flow and adapted easily to where - when - how we would take our photos given the weather. Despite the weather, the photos came out beautiful! We received these photos within 3 weeks! He was extremely professional, easy to work with, and affordable. We highly recommend using Mike Argento for your wedding photography!

Mike Argento was an absolute joy to work with. My family made so many comments after the wedding as to how unobtrusive, friendly, and easy to work with he was. The icing on the cake is the drop dead gorgeous photos that we have to treasure for a lifetime. Mike’s work is truly art.

Your memories are my craft.

After your wedding, I choose all of the good shots and carefully remove the extras. Once I narrow down the gallery to just the best shots, I edit all of the images to correct the exposure, color, and remove any blemishes or unwanted objects. As soon as everything is ready, I send you a direct link to your gallery. At that point your photos will be available to download, print, and share immediately! I'm always the last stop before you receive your edited photos and I take a tremendous amount of pride in that. My mission is to create a beautiful and artistic collection of photos which will serve as your first family heirloom. I consider documenting the beginning of your new life together an opportunity and a privilege. You inspire me!
