02b55cb22a02660553bcf688373e5d66 Mike RomanoMr. Romano is my steady second shooter, when you book me for a wedding you almost always book the both of us.

Like Erik, Mike has a full time career- but he is a police officer, not a firefighter. I know, the Village People jokes just don’t get old!

Mike and I? We’re kinda like peanut butter and jelly, but not like the kind in the jar that comes all swirled together. In theory that sounds good but in reality, it’s not. We’re kind of like that. We need our own jars. Sometimes he’s crunchy peanut butter and I’m something crazy like apricot jelly. Sometimes he’s feeling like the seedless raspberry preserves and I’m all about the Teddy Bear all natural peanut butter. Except you gotta mix me up. Once in a while he may be like squeezable grape and I’m Skippy Creamy. The end result is a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich: good freshly made and good hours after sitting in a hot lunch box. That’s us!

What got you interested in photography?

I got into photography about 7 years ago at my other job. I was assigned to do the CSI type work investigating crime scenes. I was sent to a one week photography class, using a film camera, and some of the techniques I learned really interested me. A few years later the department actually bought Nikon D100 cameras. After using the digital camera I was hooked. Shortly after I went out and purchased my very own Nikon, but I had to upgrade to the D200. (mike now shoots with the D3s)

It may sound kind of weird but photographing a crime scene is almost the same as shooting a wedding. You have to tell a story with the photos and capture a lot of details.

But shooting a wedding is a little bit more fun than photographing a crime scene.

My favorite cupcake is…

Any cupcake with a boatload of frosting . I recently heard Cold Stone Creamery has ice cream cupcakes. That may be my favorite since cold stone is my favorite ice cream. Cold Stone + Cupcakes = yummy-ness

The best part about my wedding was…

The best part of my wedding was seeing all my friends and family there having an awesome time. And of course marrying my wife Kimmy!

The first dance song at our wedding was…

Ahhhhh, I’ll have to get back to you on that one. I think it was Nelly “getting hot in here” LOL just kidding it was ‘Songbird” by Eva Cassidy

Describe your family…

My family is best described like the Family Guy. Yours truly starring as Peter Griffin. Kim fits pretty well into the roll of Lois, crazy and discombobulated. Jordan fits asChris perfectly. Big Max does drag his ass across the carpet, like Brian, to piss Kim (Lois) off.

Now Aiden is probably, in my mind, gearing up to take over the world and plotting to take out Kim like baby Stewie.

I’m just missing Meg, who might be coming in the future, or if I think about it long enough I could think of ways to make Jordan fit that role too, lol.


My favorite place to vacation is…

Gotta say Hawaii. My honeymoon spot and now home to my timeshare.

When I am driving in my car, I am listening to…

106.9 WCCC “THE ROCK” or
