Michael also is available for destination weddings nationwide and throughout the Caribbean. He has covered events in Virginia, Maryland, Florida and in Punta Cana in The Dominican Republic.

Michael's wedding photography has been described as the perfect blend of traditional elegance and contemporary styling. He knows just how to "pose" you, your bridal party and your family to make everyone look their absolute best, yet he does so with an unobtrusive, casual style that brings out the best of everybody's features and personality. He adopts a candid, photojournalistic style for a great part of the event, allowing you to enjoy every precious moment of the big day. Your images will be many and they will include glamorous bridal portraits, stunning environmental images, exquisite shots of all of your carefully-chosen details, intimate shots of your ceremony and candid shots of every single moment of the day. You will have your own web site and gallery online, after the event, where you, your friends and family can visit and view all of the extraordinary images Michael and his team create on your wedding day. Michael is an extremely talented digital artist and will personally edit, retouch and enhance every single image. Almost all of Michael's clients commission him to design and create a finished bound wedding album...the first heirloom you and your spouse will create together as a couple...one you will cherish for a lifetime of memories.


In addition to his awesome wedding photography, Michael creates dramatic portraits for advertising, editorial, corporate and private clients. His portraits capture the true essence of his subjects. An art director at one major NYC advertising agency stated that "Michael doesn't just produce portraits...he captures personalities". Combining his skills as a digital artist, one of Michael's trademark techniques is to composite images together...placing the right person in the perfect place without logistical restraints. Corporate clients have leveraged this skill to place their executive officers in strategic locations without them ever having to leave their offices. Advertising and editorial clients have exploited this talent to put local New York City models and talent in extraordinary far off locations without ever having to leave The Big Apple. In this day and age of computer digital imaging virtually anything is possible. Let Michael use his skills and creativity to produce dynamic images for your next corporate, advertising or editorial project. A partial list of some of the clients who have done so includes: Altarbound Bridal, Audiovox Corporation, Avis Car Rental, The Boomer Esiason/Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Bridal World, CMR Advertising & Design, Calvin Klein Eyewear, Computer Associates, Comp USA, Fujifilm North America, Greenstone Rabasca Advertising, Hazeltine Corporation, International Hydron, LB Bridal, Loiacono & Associates Advertising, Nikon USA, The New York Jets NHL Football Franchise, and Twinlab Corporation.

In addition to his commercial portrait work Michael can be commissioned for unique personal portrait projects. Michael has done numerous "lifestyle" sessions for individuals, families and other groups. Maybe you're looking for an incredibly flattering set of images for an online dating or matchmaking site. Maybe you're looking for a truly professional business portrait for use on social media sites such as LinkedIn or simply to add to business letters, business cards, email communications, newsletters, etc. Perhaps it's an intimate boudoir session for that special man in your life. Maybe it's a family portrait at your beach house or on your boat. Michael even creates dynamic head shots for models, actors, actresses, musicians and other entertainers. Whatever concept you may have in mind for a truly special portrait, Michael would love to collaborate with you.


Every professional photographer has a body of work that does not revolve around their commercial photographic specialty and Michael ONeill is no exception to that rule. We hope you take the time to peruse the Fine Art Editions section of his web site. The day-to-day pressures and constraints of running a thriving commercial photo studio kept Michael away from personal projects for the early part of his career. In the last few years, however, he has made the time to create some images solely for his own soul, without the influence of client needs or demands. Michael is an avid motorcycle rider and whether he is riding locally or road-tripping extensively throughout the United States and Canada he always has a camera with him. Throughout his travels he has captured some beautiful images of wonderful scenes in this great continent of ours. His two-wheeled travels have taken him as far north as Gaspé, QC, Canada (some 400 miles north of Halifax, Nova Scotia), as far south as Key West, Florida and a far west as the Canyons of Arizona and the Deserts of Nevada. Though he originally set out to pursue fine art photography for personal satisfaction, his works have garnered critical acclaim. His works have appeared in many prominent juried art exhibitions and are offered for acquisition though a number of prestigious art galleries. His works are held in private collections worldwide and he is constantly adding new creations to his body of work.


Being a professional photographer has given Michael the opportunity to have a rewarding career doing something he loves to do. One of the things he loves to do now, more than anything else, is to give back to the industry that has been so good to him. Michael is a prominent photographic educator who has spoken in an array of venues from small local amateur photo clubs to the annual convention platform of WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) the largest professional organization of it's type in the world. WPPI has honored Michael with its "Master of WPPI" designation...a title held by only 68 photographers in the world as of February 1, 2015. Arguably, the most important educational experience to attend at WPPI's annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada is the 16 X 20 Print, Album & Filmmaking Competition, where the best photographers from around the world submit their finest works for judging and critique by some of the world's most respected photographers. Michael has had the honor of being a judge in this competition every single year since 2009. For more information on Michael's upcoming speaking engagements, workshops and mentoring programs please visit the "Photographic Education" section of this web site.

Best Royalton Roslyn Country Club NY NYC Wedding Photographer

This has got to be one of my favorite wedding images ever…and one of my most awarded in professional wedding photography competitions. On the local level at PPGNY (Professional Photographers of Greater New York) this image was awarded Best-In-Show in their image competition. On the state level it garnered a Court of Honor award; one of the highest awards attainable) at Photo Northeast, the joint convention of PPSNYS (Professional Photographers of New York State) and PPANJ (Professional Photographer's Association Of New Jersey). Finally, on the international level, this image earned a silver award at The WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) 16 X 20 Print, Album and Film Making Competition held annually at the MGM Grand Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.Non withstanding to all the awards, this image has special meaning to me. One of the greatest things about this business is the friendships I forge with my clients. The bride in this photograph was the second of two sisters to get married within a year’s time. I had the privilege and pleasure of being the wedding photographer for both these lovely brides and, naturally, got to know the family quite well. The bride’s sister was married at St. Catherine of Sienna R.C. Church in Franklin Square, NY and had her wedding celebration at the famous waterfront catering venue, Marina Del Rey, in Bronx, NY (Under the Throgs Neck Bridge with the New York City skyline as a backdrop). The bride in this photograph chose The Royalton at The Roslyn Country Club in Roslyn Heights, NY to cater her reception. The stairway in the picture rises from the main lobby of the stately old mansion to the upper floor where the bridal suite, replete with it’s own period style bar, is located. Both of these bride’s and the rest of their family are wonderful people and I was honored to have captured all the memories of both days and preserved them in custom designed wedding albums for generations of enjoyment.
