Johnson City Photographer – Michael Kaal Photography » Blog


When people ask me “What do you do for a living?” I like to give some thought to the question.  My response is one of several answers: I’m an artist, creating one-of-a-kind works of art for you and your family; I’m a preservationist, documenting precious moments of your life and helping you build a beautiful history of memories; and most importantly, I am a friend, someone you can count on to ensure that your special day is a beautiful success. I have the honor and privilege of sharing in your happiest moments – I am constantly inspired by true love, beauty, and light.  I am truly passionate about art and imagery and sharing my passion with you.  I am a small business owner and an entrepreneur – my focus is on producing photos you will cherish, and providing you with unparalleled service.  Most importantly I want to give God the credit for all the people and situations that have molded me into the person and photographer I am today.
