Why You Should Choose Code:M Design

I started out in photography with a promise: to always see things from my client’s perspective. This led me to focus on three areas: Price, Delivery, and Look. Collectively, I call these the “new photography standards” – a modern and customer friendly way of doing photography. My pricing is transparent and fair for both clients AND business. I guarantee a turn-around-time of 72 hours and provide all edited photos via an electronic link. And I want every session to feel unique to the subject. These are the things that I wanted as a customer, and now things I promise to deliver to you. 


1. Provide exceptional quality & unique photos.
2. Offer the best turn-around-times in the industry.
3. Provide a professional & personalized relationship with all of my clients.
4. Support non-profits & my local community.

Me and My Family

My name is Michael Woolheater and I am from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Outside of photography, I am a busy family man. My wife, Andrea, and I have a seven year old daughter named Tenley and a five year old son named Talon. I am a scientist, project manager, and business development specialist in research with a regional hospital network and I am the owner of a thriving landscaping company, Concrete Contours.

Photography has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. It started with a passion to photograph my family as it grew. That quickly became a desire to help others capture their special memories and there were no limitations on the types of memories. Code:M Design quickly became one of the areas premier concert, wedding, family, maternity, and events photographer.

Two of my favorite quotes and ones that I apply to everything I do in business are; “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care” and “All we have at the end of the day is how we have treated others”.
