Mike and his wife are awesome! They were recommended to me by the people at carmel valley ranch, where i was planning my proposal during a weekend getaway. I have a very demanding job so getting away to make calls can be tough,but 2 phone conversations and a few text with Mike and he helped figure everything out, including the where and how as he was familiar with the location. Beyond that, he went to pick up the flowers for me so that i wouldn't pay delivery fees, and him and his wife acted a bit when it came time for the proposal to make the proposal extra special.Sent on 07/10/2019
He caught some amazing shots, and made us feel comfortable, matter a fact he wasn't in our face he just let us be and focused on the moments.This is coming from someone who's very uncomfortable with pictures and can't pose to save his life. His directions were, walk this way, hold hands and then he worked his magic. He had the photos edited and uploaded in about 7 days, where we were able to download photos in multiple formats (print/social media) and have a phone friendly version He's price is relatively the same as most photographers but i got wayyyyyyy more than i paid for, absolutely amazing service. They truly care and are happy to capture these moments. Would use again

Mike was amazing!! He had such great energy, and so many people commented to me about how great his personality is. It seemed like he never stopped taking photos, and I am so excited to see all the images. The pictures that I have seen so far are works of art! He is such a friendly guy, and a joy to work with. I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Mike!!Sent on 12/07/2015

Mike Steelman is an AMAZING photographer! He and his wife Gina captured exquisite moments throughout the wedding day and the results are flawless. We planned our wedding from across the country and Mike was incredibly gracious and accommodating. We interviewed him over Skype and loved that he is a down-to-earth guy who knows how to navigate and capture party moments without making guests stiffen up. He helped coordinate pictures of our large bridal party efficiently while cracking jokes and making us smile and relax. We received over 600 gorgeous images and are so pleased with how they turned out. I would highly recommend him to be your wedding photographer.Sent on 10/26/2015
We also used a photo-booth through Mike Steelman Photography which was a highlight for the guests. We got copies of the photos (as did the guests) and were also very pleased with this service.
Mike Steelman Photographers, Wedding Photographer Carmel, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Francisco's reply:Thank you Christina! It was such an honor to work with you and Rob, and we couldn't have asked for a better couple to work with. You both are beautiful people! Congratulations again!
Mike and his lovely wife Gina are fun to work with. They make their couples feel comfortable and relaxed on their day. They are professional and easy to work with. Their years of experience will make your day and photos what you dreamed of.
Just one of the coolest and most unique personalities in the biz, we have had lots of time to get to know Mike and his awesome wife Gina and they are the real deal. You'll have so much fun with him - he is funny, dead-on honest and daringly creative in his art. Thumbs WAY up : )
Mike is a special photographer. I always tell my brides & grooms that when choosing a photographer you need to be aware of not only their work but also their personality. Mike is a perfect example of someone working with passion and joy. And that shows. His work is not only amazing but so is his personality. Booking with Mike Steelman Photographers will ensure a day perfectly captured and a fun experience while it's being captured.
