Great experience for my daughter’s wedding November 2018
Michael showed up early the day of the ceremony, was very personable, had excellent ideas for places to take photos at the venue (Tenaya Lodge), and captured a wonderful range of moments from the wedding party before ceremony, straight through the ceremony, and all aspects of the reception. I like how he had a sense of fun and the photos don’t all look too formal or staged. We are really enjoying seeing all the photos and appreciate having them on a USB device for us.

Fantastic Wedding Photographer
Michael did such a wonderful job. He captured all the moments of our wedding that I wanted. He was very flexible with when to take certain photos and left it up to me and my husband as to when we wanted certain photos to happen. He showed up early and took lots of candid photos and photos detailing the food, centerpieces, etc. It is wonderful because the actual ceremony goes by so fast that I am so glad to have photos of what the venue looked like and the little touches the florist did. He was very knowledgeable of Tenaya Lodge and what places worked best to take photos. He is extremely friendly, easy-going, and makes everyone feel very comfortable. He really helped capture the essence of our wedding day and I am so grateful. He gave us over 1,500 photos on a flashdrive so that we can choose which ones we like and how to distribute them. I would highly recommend him.

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
