Michael Crue is a wedding, portrait & event photographer. While he is based out of the Martinsburg, WV., he travels anywhere his clients want him to. His passion for photography started back in 1984 while enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. As a young Marine, he could not afford very good cameras or equipment and simply used whatever cameras and equipment that were available to him at the time. He traveled around the world with various cameras over the years while on active duty. He enjoyed photography as a hobby and never thought of pursuing photography as a career. He saw how happy people were when they saw good photos of themselves. He eventually got ambitious over the next several years to purchase professional equipment to take his photography to the next level. He saved what he could to make this dream come true. Eventually he was able to afford professional equipment. Through alot of trial & error, a few college classes, research, and alot of practice, he learned his equipment and started to take great photos. Almost 25 years later as his photography caught the attention of family and friends, he was asked to photograph a friends wedding. Pretty soon, he was getting referred and asked to do wedding photography, sporting events, and other types of photography.

                 Over the years he has photographed many weddings and events including The Frederick Running Festival in 2016 & 2017, Cooters Last Stand, several high school sporting events, various concerts, many rodeos, parties, portrait sessions, and more ! He loves capturing and delivering special moments and memories for his clients that last a lifetime ! His passion for photography has enabled him to become extremely competitive in the industry, and his rates are also extremely competitive because he does not rely solely on his income from photography. He doesn't advertise much, because the majority of his business comes from referrals. He does book up fast, so be sure to contact him today to reserve your special dates and times. Good photography isn't cheap, and cheap photography isn't good !
