About Us

Hi! I'm photographer, Robert Michael Plavchak (Mike). My wife Stacey and I own Mike's Photography & Design Studio in Lakeland, Florida. We cover all of Polk County and the Central Florida area. Stacey assists me on the majority of my photo shoots and more importantly, she is the creative eye behind a lot of the design work you'll see in our products. We work together to ensure that your experience with us is a great one, and that in the end, you have beautiful photographs you will cherish for years to come.


I've always viewed photographs as a way to capture and hold on to all of life's precious moments so that future generations will be able to share in our memories. Photographs have the ability to connect families and friends however close or far apart they may be. They are a record of who we are and where we have been.


"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still"

-Dorothea Lange


I put that same passion into capturing your moments. My goal is to work with you, to make your vision of your special day a reality. Our process starts by sitting down with you and listening to your ideas and needs. I work for you, so your satisfaction is the only thing that counts. If you are not happy at the end of the day, then I failed at my job, and I hate to fail!
