The Absolute Best!
Michael was recommended to us by friends who had used him for their wedding. On multiple occasions leading up to the wedding they would tell us ‘you are going to love working with him- he’s the best’. And truthfully, they were right. He was wonderful and made the whole day so stress-free for us.Sent on 03/24/2019
Leading up to the wedding day, we talked to him several times about what we were hoping to get out of the day and the moments we wanted to capture with the photos. And we discussed the plans for the day – having the wedding at our house and then later having the reception in Baltimore. We told him that we’d love to get some photos in the city. He said he’d be happy to help us with that and helped us figure out timing, so we would be able to take advantage of the best natural light in the afternoon. Because we had no idea of what we were doing, we asked for a couple recommendations on other vendors (wedding cake, hair and makeup etc.) and he was happy to oblige…and on a side note, we ended up using those vendors as well and couldn’t have been happier with them as well.
A couple of weeks before the wedding he came to our house to get an idea of the layout. While he was there, he gave us thoughts on what might look good or make things easy. And he spent some time taking photos of us in our yard just to give us an idea how things could look on our wedding day. After that, we felt completely comfortable and confident in Michael’s abilities and that the result would be what we were looking for.
On the day of the wedding, he showed up several hours before the ceremony to capture us getting ready and get some shots of people arriving. He was so professional and friendly when interacting with our guests. Multiple people at the wedding came up to us and commented on how great the photographer was- both friendly and polite. He checked in with us every step of the way to make sure we were comfortable with the shots and how everything was going. You could tell he was working so hard to make sure he captured all the special moments of the day. His energy is endless!
After the ceremony, we hitched a ride with Michael down to the city and he captured some photos of us outside in Fells as well as our cocktail hour and reception.
He truly has a gift for seeing what would make a good photo. He went above and beyond what we could have expected from him on the wedding day. He is a large reason why our wedding turned out exactly the way we wanted. Most importantly, when we got the photos back from him, they exceeded our expectations. We thought he would have captured some good shots, but everything he did turned out beautifully! To anyone who is looking for a photographer, please reach out to Michael because you will not be disappointed.

Michael Stavrinos Photography is absolutely AMAZING!!Sent on 08/18/2018
Michael and his team were one of the first vendors my husband and I booked. They were recommended by one of our friends. Hands down with out a doubt the best decision we made. A Top notch vendor to work with! Michael worked with our insane schedule and kept in close contact all along the way. The dedication to get the perfect shot was not unnoticed. The amount of compliments we heard from our family & friends about them the next day at brunch were endless!! Our package included a photo-booth and it was the highlight of the night for our guests and it was great to see the pictures after the wedding! We went full package and we recommend it because it is well worth the investment.
We love all of the photos they took!

Michael was one of the best parts about our wedding day. We were referred to him by one of our vendors and I hadn't seen his work until we met with him before the wedding. The album he showed us was beautiful and he was so sweet and easy to get along with and we were sold. He kept in contact with me up until the wedding and turned out to be so helpful beyond even his photography. He had advice for the wedding day that included tips he had acquired from all of his experiences, both professional and personal.Sent on 12/28/2017
On our wedding day he blew our minds. His level of professionalism is out of this world. We were all so impressed by his demeanor and his knowledge and how quickly he moved to capture each special moment. We still can't get over it. He's so polite, too. He brought an assistant and he was awesome as well. We received our edited photos this week and they are just gorgeous.
Weddings are stressful and there is a lot to coordinate. If you hire Michael, you'll be setting up a sure thing that'll turn out beautifully.
THANK YOU Michael!!!!!!!
Friendly, outgoing, calm, funny, professional. All words that come to mind when I think of Michael and his amazing crew. Breathtaking, beautiful, unique, modern, priceless. All words that come to mind regarding his photographs. As an officiant, I see all kinds of photographers, and what I think stands out the most in my mind regarding Michael was how much he moved around during the ceremony- certainly not in a rude or distracting way, but instead in a way that was meant to artistically catch a moment... and that he does, several times, over and over and over again. Although his work says so much about him, I truly encourage you to get him on the phone (or a meeting of some sort) to talk with him... his friendly demeanor and professional knowledge will blow you away... believe me.
Michael is amazing! All of his photos are "frame worthy" and he is a delight to work with!
