Michael Lamb’s signature photographic style combines his 15 years' experience shooting authentic, contemporary portraiture with the photojournalistic techniques he honed when capturing images of the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Braves, which were published in Sports Illustrated. Along with fellow photographer Meredith Cox, he chronicles milestone events such as marriages from the time of the engagement to the toss of the bouquet, as well as capturing stunning family portraiture that is ideal for gracing homes, offices, or hometown billboards.

The photographers also offer photo-booth rental services, which print goofy party favors for guests and offer momentary refuge for socially awkward party clowns.
