ABOUT MICHAEL T

Servicing the Creative Industry for More Than a Decade

Michael T Photography & Design Inc. is a company that we’re deeply proud of.  When we started MTPD 16 years ago, we set out to create a photography company set apart from the rest. 

Built on ethical business practices, exceptional customer service, extreme professionalism, and complete transparency, our agency is the embodiment of our personal beliefs. 

And after almost two decades in business, and countless overjoyed clients who return time and time again, we know we got something right!

Michael Tenaglia, Partner and Principal Photographer

Having 20 years of professional photography under my belt means that I’ve taken a lot of photos!  I’ve met some inspiring people, I’ve visited beautiful countries, and I’ve had the privilege of working with amazing companies doing incredible things. 

Being a professional photographer has allowed me to be creative every day and in every way possible. Although my creative pursuit started with oil painting, film photography soon became my medium of choice. Through photography, I’m able to capture the moments, feelings, and situations that speak words that could not be spoken otherwise.

Working with my clients to bring their creative vision to life fuels my passion to be, and give my best every day. The images I capture are an extension of that passion, and how I show the world the beauty in the unexpected.

Each person I photograph has an unspoken story waiting to be shared. My job as their photographer is to help them express that story, their truth, in the most authentic way possible. Helping each person feel calm, happy, and present is my talent and my gift to them during our photography session.

Together with my partner in business and life, Sandra Grilo, we created this company to live our story, our truth, and our passion every day.

We hope to share it with you too!

Sandra Grilo, Partner, Photographer, Communications Artist

Whether it’s project or event management, graphic design, social media management, internal and external communications, or website creation and management, I’m the gal that will get it done.

Having a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, and a love for growing things from the ground up, building MTPD with Michael into the exceptionally successful company it is today has been one of my greatest accomplishments.

Some would call me the woman behind the man.  Luckily, the man in this scenario places me at his side, his equal, and together we take on the world our way, and we hope to make it a bit better every chance we get.

Have a look around.  And when you’re ready to talk about your next great idea, give us a call.  I’ll have a cup of coffee waiting for you!
