    Working with Ambrosia was wonderful! Their staff was very professional, prompt, and caring throughout each step of the process - from our initial meeting to our pre-wedding correspondence, and on the day-of. The pricing was unmatched and the quality was better than we could have hoped for. Specifically we worked with a DJ (Jose), a photographer (Joshua), and videographer (Ed). Each vendor had great attention to detail, incorporated our specific needs, and produced a finished product that made our day special. We HIGHLY recommend using Ambrosia and would gladly use their services again for another event.

    My wife and I enlisted the help of Ambrosia for the photography of our wedding and to provide a photo booth as a favor to our guests. We could not be happier! Michael did a phenomenal job and our pictures are perfect! He was so wonderful to work with. The photo booth was very fun and our guests had a blast with it. The whole of our services was very reasonably priced, especially for the high level of service that we received. Thank you Michael and the Ambrosia team for helping to put our special memories onto film!!! For anyone looking for a full service wedding event company, we would highly recommend Ambrosia!

    Allen and his team were simply amazing. From the first meeting when I wasn't sure how this wedding planning worked, Allen was knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. He guided me through the process that made wedding planning a breeze. his team and vendors were easy to work with, reliable, and extremely understanding about the thousands of questions we asked over the course of the planning. Our wedding went off without a hitch, and it's due to Allen and his team at Ambrosia. Will recommend to friends!

    I heard of Ambrosia because they were a preferred vendor through my venue. We met with Allen and was extremely satisfied with what he had to offer. We hired him to do our engagement shoot, and was impressed with his work, so hired him for our wedding. His quality of work is amazing, and he is a great person. We ordered our Save the Date's through him for a great price. He is definitely going to be our photographer for any future events as well. I'm glad we chose him!!

    Allen is exceptionally talented, his artistic eye is one of a kind. The ability to see a perfect picture moment before it happens is exactly what you want in a photographer.
    This Man is so kind and helpful and if you like to have a personal touch and feel like new family member rather then a client then this company is perfect for you.
    We had our engagement photo session with Allen , we brought our two boxers along with us and it was about 89 degrees that day. Needless to say it was hot and complicated for us and the dogs, which made us worry that the pictures will reflect our discomfort. however Allen did not loose his cool not once, the photos looked amazing and we are so happy with the outcome.
    We are getting Married next month and off curse Allen and Ambrosia's crew will be there with us to capture our happy day.

    I was contacting several photographers, and Allen responded to my emails quickly and was able to set a meeting up right away. The plan was to meet with a few photographers before making our decision. We booked with Ambrosia, our first meeting, without hesitation. Allen was very sweet, took his time with us, and answered all our questions. All interactions after that were easy and fun. Allen understands photography and couples! We had a great time at our engagement session and our wedding. Allen and his team were very professional and easy to have around. They didn't interfere with the ceremony or other vendors. We hardly knew we were having our pictures taken. I don't like having my picture taken, but Allen and his team made it easy and comfortable. The best part is we now have wonderful pictures that will last us a lifetime!

    Michael, Michelle and Angel did an amazing job at my very complex wedding celebrations. We had a 3 day event starting off with a traditional Cambodian Ceremony and they were very flexible and willing to work with our crazy schedule. The bridal party reception photos were a blast to take and we love all the candid shots of everyone. Angel was our photographer at our 3rd event which was hosted at our Uncle's house with traditional Indian theme. The pictures turned out beautiful and they are priceless.

    If I were to describe Allen in a couple of words...they would be professional and patient. He is professional in a sense of his character, attitude, and quality of work. My wife and I had some amazing camera shots on the Queen Mary despite some rowdy groomsmen (i.e. intoxicated, lol) and uncooperative bridal party. Allen was patient and relaxed in doing so resulting in some memorable photos of our special day.

    I'm a person who doesn't like to be in front of a camera and Allen made it fun and relaxing. He allowed us to be natural yet gave us enough instruction to get amazing shots. All of my friends have commented how our engagement and wedding photographs look like their from a magazine ad because they look so artistic and stylized. I can't express how great it was to work with Allen!

    My wife and I used Ambrosia Event Services through a business referral and we could not have been more pleased and happy with everything. From meeting before the wedding to go over our vision to the actual day, working with Michael was easy, professional, and rewarding. Our pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined. They were so perfect. I would fully recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer and not just for weddings, but for any type of event. Will use them for our anniversary party for sure!

    The number one priority I wanted to have from my wedding was beautiful memories, and that's exactly what I got. The photographer was the first vendor that I booked. A. Micheals Photography (currently Ambrosia Event Services) creates their beautiful work with La Vie photobooks and they were within my budget! First, our engagement photos experience was phenominal!!! After we took a peek at our wedding photos, we were convinced that we didn't regret investing in a good photographer. Thank you Mr. Newsum!

    Excellent pictures that captured the overall feel of our wedding! We were extremely pleased with this service and we even provided a long list of picture requests and they were all taken care of. Once the event started we didn't have to worry about anything. I would highly recommend Ambrosia Event Services!

    My husband and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures that A. Michael's Photography took on our wedding day! I had made some suggestions pertaining to poses and pictures I'd like to create and he was completely open to it! During the bridal photo shoots, he had us do all the poses I suggested plus more!

    He and assistant, Laura, were professionals, but friendly at the same time. They both put my husband and I at ease and encouraged us to be ourselves so our true personality can show in the photos.

    A. Michael's Photography also shot our engagement photos and it was such a great preview of what was to come on our wedding day!

    And one more thing: A. Michael's Photography is affordable! A. Michael's Photography will offer you high quality photographs at an affordable price, which is a definitely steal!

    Michael is such an amazing photographer! He did both our engagement and our wedding photos. He is really creative and helped bring our vision alive in what we wanted for both shoots. He makes his clients feel very comfortable which ultimately makes the photos come out amazing. Michael and his team are very professional and the outcome of the photo albums are more than me and my husband could even imagined. The pictures are flawless. We will work with Michael and his team again!

    Once again, Thank you for you hard work!

    My husband and I got married in July 2011. We were recommended by our venue to A. Michael and because we were planning a CA wedding from NY we were very nervous about choosing things correctly. Michael made everything so easy for us! He always contacted me back in a timely manner with my crazy emails!! His prices are great and way below for the quality that we got! His pictures turned out amazing. His assistant Sarah was with us all day as well and they captured everything! We could not have been more pleased. His website lets you see all of the pictures and organizes them into folders for easy choosing. So many people are still commenting to us how beautiful the pictures are and the color changes are amazing. I highly recommend using this photographer!!

    I loved his work. He captured the most beautiful moments and the pictures came out awesome. He made my day become so memorable that everytime I look at my albums and portraits I feel like I am totally reliving my special moment all over again. I was honored for him to do my engagement and wedding portraits. I am so satisfied with his work and will continue to use him for any upcoming events.

    Finding a photographer is a very difficult decision, and is a very stressful process. One does not know who they can trust, but when we met Michael he eased our fears. He really made us feel comfortable and worked with us very well, even through difficult weather. He is a very approachable person and warm heart. I stresses about all the details about the wedding and he was able to handle me :). We really feel like we got a lot of value for what we paid.

    Michael and Jaime were a pleasure to work with. Both, Michael and Jaime, put everyone at ease and always had a smile on their faces.
    The quality of his craftsmanship was superb and far beyond comparison. Jaime's ability to create artistic shots shined through in our portraits. We highly recommend A. Michael's Photography.

    A. Michael's Photographers was such a pleasure to work with. As soon as my fiance and I sat down with him and looked through his wedding books he had made we both new we found our photographer! He was fabulous the day of our wedding, helping us with our day of time line, making sure we got all the right pictures together, w/ friends and family. He took a good combination of still shots and candid moments. Our wedding day was captured perfectly by A. Michael's Photographers and we're so happy to have these memories forever. I highly recommend A. Michael's Photographers for your wedding!!
