About ParksPictures

Hi there! I'm Michael Parks, lead photographer and owner of ParksPictures.  I'm a PPA Certified Professional Photographer - one of only four in Charlotte.  We service North and South Carolina, and enjoy destination events as well.

I love the art of photography. I believe making great pictures begins with really getting to know my clients, so that I can communicate their stories authentically.  

My wedding photography has been published in Photoshop User magazine and won WeddingWire's 2021 Couple's Choice Award because my pictures have an authenticity that comes from creative collaboration with my clients.  

I specialize in weddings, engagement sessions, family portraits, senior portraits, professional headshots, and brand photography.  Regardless of the type of photography, the focus is always on my clients and bringing their vision to life.

I value serving others, working hard, and creating art that brings a little more light into our world. Giving back to the community through Help-Portrait, Habitat for Humanity, and my church is also a priority.

My biggest priorities are my wife and two daughters. And then there is Cletus - I love that dog!


What Clients Are Saying...

In the midst of a pandemic, Mike by far made us feel the most comfortable booking with him. He was friendly, flexible and easy to work with. He made our big day feel exciting, perfect, and stress free. For someone who usually feels shy in front of a camera, he made me feel absolutely stunning and comfortable! The photos he shot turned out amazing; we are having a hard time counting/choosing our favorites. We would 10 out of 10 recommend him to shoot for any event!!

The perfect photographer for our big day!  Mike is truly amazing. He made us feel so comfortable and the ways he captured our big day were so beautiful. Many of our guests even told us how great he was with them, too. We were so lucky to have him and highly recommend him!

10/10 Experience.  I would recommend Michael to anyone! I am extremely picky so I sent him sample pictures of the exact style I wanted and all of the pictures turned out even better than I expected! He is extremely friendly and made the whole process so easy for us.

- Alex M.
