Photography is my passion and has been for many years. I am a self-taught photographer and I have been in business since 2011. I have shot over 80 weddings and engagement sessions. I have recently expanded my work to include family, maternity, portrait, commercial, and senior sessions. If I’m not taking pictures professionally, I’m out exploring near and far capturing the moments of life as I experience them. Photography is much more than a job for me – it’s a way for me to personally connect with the people, places, and things around me. I want to thank you for visiting my website and appreciating the time and work I’ve put in to making my clients happy. As you scroll down, I want you to get an idea of who I am and how photography has shaped my life in every way.
My passion for photography started when I was a young kid, my family really sparked my interest in the world of Photography. I grew up in the quaint town of Roseau, Minnesota, located right near the Canadian border. We lived there for eight years and I loved every minute of it. My passion for photography began when my parents gave me my very own camera. I took pictures of anything and everything I found beauty in: cats, dogs, flowers, buildings, you name it! As I grew, so did my love for photography and soon, my camera was permanently attached to my hip – it went everywhere with me. When I wasn't out exploring with my camera, I was playing hockey (something I still enjoy today) and managing a Landscaping company out of Fairfax Iowa. When I was eight years old, my family moved back to Iowa and I have lived in and around Cedar Rapids since that time. I consider it home – no matter where I go, I always make it back.
Recently I have had the privilege of working with the University Iowa Children's Hospital Foundation. Other notable projects include Chive Charities and Iowa Fashion Project.
I always knew photography would be a big part of my life. As I got older, I made it a goal of mine to pursue it professionally and I am proud that I was able to make Michael Grobin Photography a reality. Although I’m self-taught, I’ve started to advance my knowledge in photography by taking classes on the new and upcoming trends as a way to keep up with what’s popular in the profession. My photography packages are affordable and can be modified to fit your exact needs. I try to make everything as hassle-free and cost-effective as possible!
