Mike make our wedding day so special. He was very relaxing and accommodated to anything we asked for. The photos he took were AMAZING... they were one of best parts of our wedding actually. Very professional, friendly, and a great value. He gave us digital rights to all of our photos, as well as a photo album which is exactly what my husband and I were looking for. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Mike for your special day. He, honestly, was the best out of all of our vendors. We were so happy with everything he did for us. THANK YOU, Mike, for truly making our day amazing.Sent on 06/08/2017
