Warm, glowing, beautiful photos
Working with Michael was a dream! He made us feel comfortable and look natural in front of the camera which was not an easy feat. Our engagement photos are beyond gorgeous and we are DYING to see the full wedding album after checking out the sneak peek album. Beautiful work, great attitude, Michael was a true pleasure to work with!Sent on 05/01/2019

Michael is so talented, so professional and so fun to be around! When we first met him, we instantly knew he was the perfect photographer for our big day. My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera but Michael reassured us, got us to let loose and feel at ease with him at our engagement session. Come wedding day, Michael was the most familiar face out of all of our vendors which really calmed both my husband and I's nerves while getting ready. Aside from being one of the nicest people we know, he is so extremely talented! His attention to detail and lighting is amazing.Sent on 10/10/2018
We've only just gotten a sneak peak from him of our wedding day but we are melting over them. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought our pictures would come out this great.

If you are looking for a photographer, look no further. Michael is THE most skilled, dependable, courteous, comfortable, caring, and talented photographer you will ever meet. He has such a big heart and really puts his all into every photo he takes. His shots are creative and elegant, and his experience and artistry is unmatchable.Sent on 07/16/2018
My husband and I interviewed a handful of photographers, but once we met Michael we immediately knew he was the one. My husband has always hated photos, but Michael was able to completely change his perception. By the end of our engagement shoot, we were all smiling and laughing and couldn't wait to get together again.
Choosing your photographer is probably one of the most important decisions you make on your wedding day. Your photographer will be there capturing the day's worth of events--whether it be first look, vows, or first dance. You want to make sure you can trust them, are comfortable with them, and can consider them as one of your closest friends. Michael is all of these but more, and my husband and I am more grateful than ever to share our wedding day with him.
Loved working with Wonder Tribe Weddings! My brides rave about the uniqueness and creativity of the staff - a definite MUST for the perfect wedding!
Beautiful wedding photography from Michael - not only did he capture great emotion, he captured some stunning photos of the bride and groom in our golf course setting. Very punctual and thorough, our bride and groom loved him and felt very comfortable working with him which is an important part as that interaction produces great results! Looking forward to working with Wonder Tribe Weddings again!
I recently worked on a Wedding with Michael from Wonder Tribe Weddings and he is such an amazing photographer! Talented, creative, flexible and creates a calm space around him. Highly recommended!
