Captured our best day beautifully
We cannot say enough good things about working with our photographer, Mike. His work is truly stunning. Mike really cares about his work, and he also truly cares about the couples he works with. Bonus, he’s also a lot of fun, and you spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day. He was reachable and responsive from our very first inquiry to any questions we had even after our big day. Some of my questions planned down to very small details, and Mike was always extremely helpful. We elected to have a second photographer as well, and Mike brought along Nick, who was also a pleasure to work with.Sent on 10/08/2019
When you’re wedding planning, everyone tells you how quickly the day goes by and to really enjoy each moment. Thanks to Mike’s creative and thoughtful eye, we will be able to look back on all those special moments whenever we want and we are so thankful for that. We highly recommend picking Mike Orzell as your wedding photographer.

Mike orzell is incredible
My husband Bobby and I have worked in the wedding industry for years now -- we are both professional musicians, and I am also a professional florist. Between the two of us, we've probably worked 250+ weddings. We've seen it all -- the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between. We hired Mike Orzell for our own wedding and he is by far the best photographer that we've ever worked with.Sent on 09/23/2019
Mike was amazing from start to finish. We first booked him because we liked the work featured on his website (especially all the candid shots) and he seemed like a really nice guy, which he absolutely is. He went out of his way to learn as much as possible about us as a couple and what we were looking for in capturing the event.
The day of the wedding, Mike brought a joyful energy to his work and made everyone feel comfortable. Through the family portraits he kept everyone in our families organized (and we both have big families!) and he kept the mood light.
We couldn't have been happier with the way the photos turned out. He was really able to capture the JOY of the day through the emotions on everyone's faces. His action shots of the ceremony and our first dance were amazing, and his candids were spectacular. Everyone looks good in all of them.
We are so happy to be able to look back on our Big Day through his photos forever! Thank you Mike!!

The calm every bride needs
Something I never considered as a bride was how much time you spend with your vendors and how important it is for you to connect/vibe with them. Truly, their mood can add to the overall experience of the day. We hit the jackpot with Mike. His general demeanor is calming and he made us laugh throughout the day. When a flower girl kept entering our bridal portrait shot, he rolled with it and we have the most beautiful image of the two of us looking for our "prince charming" as we kept saying.... a tag he remembered days later when he posted the image to instagram. That attention to detail and ability to put everyone a ease (in addition to his keen eye for candid moments and great photography) make him an excellent choice for your big day. We hope we have the opportunity to work with him again in the future as our new family grows!Sent on 08/20/2019
