My fiancé and I had a fabulous experience with Michael J Costa photography. I connected with Michael through a recommendation from the Airbnb hostess in Oakhurst, CA where my “soon-to-be” fiancé and I were staying while we visited Yosemite National Park. Michael was extremely easy to work with, helped me coordinate the perfect time, place, and day for the BIG proposal. That may not seem all that difficult but considering we had never been to the area and were traveling from Minnesota it was extremely helpful! Not only was Michael flexible on day and time, he even drove into the park and hiked into the designated place in Yosemite before sunrise and prior to my fiancé and I arriving so that he could take some great candid shots. He was so friendly and made communication very easy via e-mail and text. The photos he took were extraordinary and captured our love with great shots. He sent a USB and provided us with edited photos that were perfect! If you are looking for a kind, respectable, and very talented photographer, Michael is definitely your guy!Sent on 07/14/2019

With all of Sequoia National Parks natural beauty it has to offer, finding the right photographer/videographer can be daunting. We at Wuksachi Lodge in Sequoia National Park loved seeing Michael in action. He was able to effortlessly catch the magic of the moment, while keeping the natural feeling the happy couple wanted. I highly recommend Michael J Costa and look forward to working with him again!
Michael is my go to photographer to recommend to my brides when I am previously booked or unavailable for events. As a fellow wedding photographer, I feel 100% comfortable and confident in recommending his services to clients and friends. Creative, responsive and reliable, Michael provides quality service at amazing prices! <3
