    The Best of the Best!

    I think it says it all when I tell you that Michael has been a part of my family's events from my oldest sister's Bat Mitzvah in 1998 all the way through my wedding in 2021. Michael is the absolute BEST and working with him is a dream. He is personable, reliable, funny, and captures the best photos throughout the day without making the posed photos feel like a drag. All throughout the night, he was on the dance floor getting group shots and candids, and I absolutely cannot wait to see all of his amazing work! We are forever grateful to have had Michael with us on such an important day. He is incredible!

    Captured Everything!

    Michael is amazing to work with and we felt safe the entire time with all of our vendors at our wedding. Michael is a very relaxed photographer to work with and in a covid environment, he made it feel as if our wedding was any normal wedding. I could not recommend a better photographer that can handle any stressful situation!

    Simply the best!

    Michael and Amy were so amazing to work with! It is so nice to be able to trust my couples with the photographer and a timeline and knowing that they can getable their photo sessions done and have everyone where they need to be without having to be there the entire time! It allowed me to ensure that every other detail of the wedding was ready and in place and my couple could not have felt more comfortable with their photo team for their big day! Michael and Amy went above and beyond and really helped bring a touch of magic to the day!
