I have to be honest, I am not your typical Wedding Photographer.
Not too many photographers are with you every step of the way...
As an fully independent Wedding Photographer, my goal is to always forge a bond with the bride and groom that starts at the first meeting and that lasts far beyond the day of your wedding. I am the photographer that will make a fool out myself just to make you laugh, the photographer who will dance with you throughout your reception, and the one that will capture the best moments when you least expect it.
From photographing the day, to editing the images, to designing the album, I am there from square one to the very end.

Best of the best
After booking our venue and securing our wedding date, my husband and I turned our search towards a photographer. If there was anything we agreed on during the wedding planning process it was having a beautiful venue and stunning photos. From our first meeting with Mike, we absolutely knew he was our photographer. Meeting with him felt like meeting with a friend. He was so personable, genuine, confident and not to mention, incredibly talented. He did not push us to book with him, in fact, he encouraged us to meet with other photographers because he said we would know when we found the photographer. Well, we already knew we had met the photographer. At our engagement photo shoot we got to see him work his magic. He had us laughing the entire time (because my husband constantly over thinks his smile this was super important). The almost three hours we spent with him at sunrise flew by. I was amazed how comfortable we felt posing in front of him and afterwards the photos spoke for themselves they were incredible.Sent on 03/24/2019
Then came our wedding day. The minute Mike walked into my parents house, where I was getting ready, I breathed a sigh of relief. He handled absolutely everything. I didn’t have to tell him what photos to take he knew. When I needed direction he provided it and best of all he let things happen naturally and captured beautiful, candid photos of the most genuine moments. Our wedding day brought sunshine and high winds and he embraced every aspect. He caught my cathedral veil when it flew off in the wind, taught me “the bride walk” or how to loop the train of my dress around my arm, and pushed my husband and I to be “epic” and pose on top of a jetty with waves crashing around us. He kept my husband and I, our bridal party, and our families laughing through all the photos. He was quick and efficient. When we got to our reception I could barely tell he was there but he most definitely was out there on the dance floor with us capturing every signature dance move. At the end of the night, I was sad saying good-bye to him because he truly was such a significant part of our wedding day.
Although I know I am biased, the photos Mike delivered of our wedding day are nothing short of BREATHTAKING and BRILLIANT. The photos are so intimate, personal and full of emotion. They are everything we could have wanted and more. His photos tell the story of our fairytale wedding day and my husband and I are forever grateful. I cannot recommend a vendor more than Mike Cassara he is truly such a talented photographer and a special person.

We love Mike!
Mike was 100% my favorite vendor that we used for our wedding. He was so accommodating and professional, and his work is just beautiful. I immediately fell in love with his style of photography - effortless, candid, and full of natural light. We had so much fun photographing our engagement shoot with him, which really helped us feel even more comfortable and excited for the actual wedding. He even helped with organizing the flow of the day and recommended great spots for shooting our first look. We recently received our album and it came out absolutely stunning. I cannot recommend Mike highly enough, and will certainly use him again in the future.Sent on 12/04/2018

We first used Michael for our engagement session. A close friend suggested that we call Michael and see if he was available. Luckily, he was. As soon as we left our engagement session, my then fiancé and I looked at each other and said, “We have to use Michael for the wedding.” This was before we even saw the photos! Michael made us feel so comfortable, even with the crazy wind there was that day. Turns out, the photos were absolutely breath taking and we had made the right decision. We booked Michael immediately. We could not have made a better choice. On the day of our wedding, Michael and his assistant, Frankie, made my husband and I feel so comfortable and relaxed. They truly felt like a part of our party. Even leading up to the wedding, Michael was always available to answer my questions within 24 hours, most of the time, the same day! He truly cared about our journey to the aisle. During the wedding reception, he was seamlessly taking photos, all while also checking up on us and making sure we were having the time of our lives! I loved how Michael made my husband and I a part of the wedding album creation. When I asked Michael for a special wedding album detail that he doesn’t typically do, he accommodated me without hesitation. There is not one negative thing I could say about our experience with Michael Cassara from engagement session all the way to the post-wedding photo album session. We can’t wait to use Michael in the future to capture more of live’s special moments. We know we will never be disappointed!Sent on 10/08/2018
