My fiancé is a photographer, so when searching for a photographer, it was his choice, and he made a great choice! Though we haven't gotten married yet, mike did out engagement shoot yesterday evening and it went very well. Mike is amazing at what he does and he makes the photo shoot very comfortable! He actually met with us in Southern Maryland for our photoshoot at 6 pm. He was full of energy and very nice! We can't wait for him to shoot our wedding! For the quality and quantity of photos that you receive, his prices are amazing!
Mike and Nancy were absolutely amazing. Booking this pair for my wedding was hands down the single best vendor selection I made. I was lucky enough that they were available since I got married on a Friday! BOOK THEM EARLY. But on November 6th, they blew my socks off. Not only were they informed about my family and friends from my discussions from them, but they were organized with my photos making them as fast as possible and super excited about capturing our couple photos. They were patient but firm with my wedding party and I needed that. They exceeded their obligations and my expectations and I have no doubt I will LOVE the pictures I receive. Thank you so very much Mike and Nancy!
Mike's daughter Nancy did my engagement photos. She was very professional. She was very easy to get in contact with and did a great job of confirming the appointment with us. The images were beautiful! It was a really fun experience and I can't wait for Nancy to do our wedding photography. She also got the pictures back to us very quickly! Amazing!
Mike and his daughter Nancy photographed our wedding in the Outer Banks and we couldn't be happier! They were a pleasure to work with and made everyone feel at ease. The photographs were beautiful - we will cherish them for a lifetime. We had a small, non-traditional wedding, and they were flexible in moving from the church, to the beach, and then back to the beach house. They were able to capture everything perfectly in every setting. Would definitely recommend!
Mike and Nancy did an incredible job capturing my husband and I’s recent wedding at Bluemont Vineyard in Bluemont, Virginia. Mike was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. We really liked that he provided us with a questionnaire to complete before our big day so that we could indicate our preferences and requests ahead of time. Looking at the photos, you would never guess that Mike and Nancy had never been to our venue before – they captured everything so expertly and perfectly! As a bride, it was so nice to have them provide the direction and initiative we needed to keep things moving smoothly! They were efficient, professional, decisive, and inspired from start to finish. We received many compliments from our wedding guests, friends, and family on how beautiful the photos are and couldn’t be happier with how they came out. Unlike many photographers out there, Mike is incredibly generous with how many photos he will share with you – not a detail from the day will be spared! We definitely recommend Mike Topham Photography to brides and grooms in the Virginia/DC area and can’t thank Mike and Nancy enough for capturing our day so beautifully!
LOOK NO FURTHER!!
Mike and Nancy provided a wonderful experience during our wedding day! Their personalities, professionalism, and excitement about their work made my husband and me feel 1000% comfortable with working with them! We met with a lot of photographers before choosing the perfect one, and we did just that! From the very first meeting, Mike's spirit and quality of work won us completely over. We were over the moon excited to have him as our photographer. The months before the wedding, we exchanged information and ideas (along with a questionnaire) that allowed them to be FULLY prepared to deliver our expectations without missing a beat! They were also timely which counts for a lot because every moment of your big day is special, and they were able to capture it all! They were also very flexible with working with our budget and desires, which gave a stress free relationship!
Mike delivered the pictures within two weeks after our wedding and they were BEYOND anything I could have imagined! We have received countless compliments and even desires to have our pictures published! I cannot thank Mike and Nancy enough for their time, dedication, and quality to ensure our special day and moments were captured into beautiful pieces of art!
Mike was fantastic. He and his daughter took some amazing photos and were do fun to work with.
Mike and Nancy were such a joy to work with! They both exhibited so much professionalism and love of their craft. Our engagement photos turned out lovely, despite my fiancé and I talking through all the photos. Mike made us feel completely comfortable and went above and beyond to get great shots.
On our actual wedding day, the two were all but invisible during the ceremony and reception. We did about 90% of the posed photos before the ceremony, so that afterward we could truly enjoy each others, our families and our guests. They gave us clear and friendly suggestions throughout- guiding us through the various poses and arrangements without ever making us feel like we were being ordered around.
Toward the end of the evening they even made the effort to get us back outside where the sky was a beautiful, vivid blue as the sun was about to set for some final, wonderful photos. All in all they were awesome- I'd recommend to anyone who will listen!
We worked with Mike and his daughter, Nancy. They were absolutely wonderful from start to finish. We wanted a "photojournalism" style for our wedding and Mike's portfolio was exactly what we had in mind - we didn't want to spend a lot of time posing for pictures and instead wanted to capture the day. For the short posed session we did have, they were friendly, quick, and Nancy in particular was so awesome with the kids. They were also incredibly flexible - we had to switch up our cocktail hour and ceremony for our outdoor wedding due to weather, and Mike and Nancy rolled with it and put together a last minute "first look" which we weren't planning on. They were so critical in helping our day run smoothly! The pictures have turned out absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't be happier.
We cannot say enough good things about Mike and Nancy. They are true professionals. From the moment they got to our wedding until we got in the car to leave, Mike & Nancy never stopped taking pictures. They are very creative and you can tell he has been around the block several times when it comes to weddings. They were very timely in getting our pictures back to us and very easy to work with. They traveled all the way from Richmond, VA to Lancaster, PA so that shows their dedication to their clients. We would recommend Mike to ANYONE looking for a photographer in the mid-atlantic region. His prices are extremely competitive and you definitely get your bang for your buck. On the day of the wedding they were great at making sure we were moving and on time for what pictures we wanted, etc. We loved Mike & Nancy and can't say enough great things about them!
Mike is amazing photographer! He was so enthusiastic about every single shot he took, which made the act of smiling for hours really quite enjoyable and easy! We love our pictures. He captured all of the right moments. I can't recommend him enough. I would give him and his team more stars if I could.
We absolutely LOVED working with Mike Topham Photography.
My (now) husband and I were so very impressed with Mike’s past experience in photography on Capitol Hill and working alongside Presidents and traveling the world. We knew this wouldn’t just be some random photographer who decided to take photos of weddings, but instead a truly skilled professional.
When we first met with him, we enjoyed his very calm and easy-going yet very professional attitude, and loved his photojournalistic style of capturing candid moments and telling a story through his photo albums. This was just what we were looking for.
We also loved that Mike’s assistant photographer would be his daughter, and he set us up with his OTHER daughter as our videographer! We were happy to work with a family business. They were all SUCH a pleasure to not just work with, but to BE with! Everyone that they interacted with got such a kick out of them and had such nice things to say about them.
Mike’s daughter was great at ‘cheering us on’ during the photos, so everyone stayed alert, looking in the right direction, and on task. This was so helpful during the group photos, because we wanted to get them done as quick as possible since there were so many of us to keep focused. That way we could get back to the wedding action!
Most importantly, Mike and his team produced the most incredible set of photos. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. They have a great eye for capturing the most beautiful and sentimental moments.
I highly recommend.
Mike is an outstanding photographer and did an excellent job photographing my daughter's wedding. Mike and his daughter Ginger took the pictures and his other daughter was the videographer. He stayed very much in the background but was there for all the critical moments throughout the day. I would definitely use his services again in the future.
We got our photos back from Mike Topham Photography last week, and we honestly could not be happier. The photos are gorgeous, Mike and his daughter were a pleasure to work with, and I think that my husband and I would both agree that this was some of the best spent money of the whole experience. Even with my husband and I coordinating the wedding from out of state, Mike was still able to work with our schedules for engagement photos and bridal portraits. Great, great experience.
Nancy was my photographer for my OBX beach wedding. The package I purchased included engagement session and was the best pricing I had seen for the beautiful photos the are known to deliver. You can tell Nancy truly loves what she does because she captures everything. She even made sure to get photos of all the kids at the wedding (especially my nephew and goddaughter) which will be great keepsakes for their parents. They are super easy to work with, and they give you the rights to your photos. I absolutely love their work and would HIGHLY recommend them!!!
Mike and Nancy were fabulous!!! Would recommend them to anyone looking for awesome, fun wedding photos!
