Mike and his team are pros
Eastbrook was awesome, Mike and his team did a fantastic job with us. They worked with us, were pleasant to be around, blended into the ceremony and reception instead of dominating it, and were both professional and creative. Most importantly, the quality of the images is fantastic.Sent on 10/16/2019

Perfect Blend of Classic and Creative Shots!
We hired Mike for our engagement and bridal photos. If he didn't have another commitment on our wedding day, we would have loved to have him photograph that as well! Mike is friendly and professional and does a good job of making you feel comfortable during the shoots. He has a great eye for locations and lighting, but what I really love most is that he delivers the right blend of the classics shots with creative ones, too. I absolutely would recommend him for any photography needs!Sent on 08/26/2020

Amazing! Definitely recommend!
I really just can’t say enough about Mike and Eastbrook Photography! Mike is so friendly and laid back and made us feel really relaxed while we were taking pictures. When we had to change our plans due to COVID, Mike was very accommodating and easy to work with. We love our photos so much and absolutely recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a photographer!Sent on 08/06/2020

Best experience and photographer!
We honestly hit the jackpot with Mike! I was searching for a “journalistic style” photographer and stumbled upon Eastbrook Photography and knew immediately it was a perfect match! Mike was extremely accommodating and flexible with phone calls and engagement picture scheduling as we were planning from out of state! We were initially nervous for our engagement pictures, as neither of us had been professionally photographed before, but Mike instantly helped us feel comfortable. On our wedding day, Mike helped us feel relaxed while also keeping us on schedule. He worked efficiently without making us feel rushed and we got all the shots we wanted with ease! Mike is ridiculously talented and it shows in every single one of our photographs. We, and our families, will cherish these photos forever and we could not recommend Mike enough!Sent on 01/09/2020

We just got our full wedding album from Mike and we are thrilled! We were drawn to Mike’s photos by his emphasis on emotion and their colorful, vibrant feel, and we are so excited to see that come out in our own pictures. We sent him a few notes and a board of our favorite photos from his galleries, and he totally understood what we were looking for and fit that bill perfectly. He has a great sense for candids as well as a knack for finding great posed opportunities, like shooting through blooming flowers, finding the perfect wide shot, or snagging just the right twilight lighting. We are so happy with the pictures- many would fit right into a magazine, many capture the emotion of us and our guests just as we hoped, and a few very aptly capture our goofy side (Did I stick my tongue *all* the way out while we cut the cake? Apparently so, and I have the photo to prove it).
From our first conversations it was clear Mike was laid-back, professional, knowledgeable and would be super easy to work with. We were new to being professionally photographed, and at the engagement shoot Mike set us up with simple poses and actions that felt natural, resulted in great pictures, and really boosted our comfort and confidence going into the wedding.
On the wedding day, Mike and his second shooter, Caleb, made everything easy, fun, and really enhanced our enjoyment of the day. We had a bit of rain during our first look, and they were really flexible, adjusting the location and helping us adapt the order of photos on the fly. Their welcoming demeanor put everyone at ease and helped us get all of our group shots done efficiently, which gave us a lot of time for fun couple shots when the sun came back out. After the ceremony, Mike even hopped in the back of a gator to ride to the top of the vineyard’s vines to get photos with a view overlooking the valley. During the ceremony and reception, they were in exactly the right places almost without you noticing, and our guests were impressed by their ability to keep things relaxed and capture the moments beautifully and unobtrusively.
And his turnaround is unreal! He had a sample of engagement photos up on Facebook the same day we took them and the full album to us later that week. After the wedding, he had an amazing preview that covered the whole day up less than 24 hours later, which was so fun to be able to share with our families and friends so soon. And less than three weeks after the wedding, we were thrilled to receive our final (huge!) album of beautiful photos.
We couldn't be happier that we chose Mike for our wedding and we recommend him highly!

Mike and his team were absolutely wonderful to work with. He made me feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and was sure to capture all the candid shots! He was not pushy whatsoever and truly allowed us to enjoy every moment, while capturing such amazing photos. We received a "sneak peek" the day after the wedding and we are completely in awe already! All of us (including our family and friends) are so taken back by these photos and could not be happier. I highly recommend Mike and cannot wait to see the rest of the photos!Sent on 08/22/2018

At our initial meeting, it quickly became clear to my mom and I that Mike is PASSIONATE about his work. On the day of our wedding, Mike was wonderful. He was so prompt and worked around our photo schedule desires before and after the ceremony. Also, he and his assistant did a great job keeping things moving, especially with the large family groups. The week leading up to the wedding, I sent Mike a list of specific photo requests, and he didn't miss a shot. He also came up with creative ideas for unique shots that I would have never thought up myself. We received our photos two days ago, and they are all beautiful. I could not be happier with the way our collection turned out!Sent on 08/02/2018

I couldn't be happier in my decision to book Mike as my photographer. He kept in contact with me for the whole year and a half leading up to my wedding. Neither my husband nor I have ever had professional pictures taken, but he made us feel so comfortable and natural- it felt like my best friend taking photos of me. He and his second shooter were willing to work with our private backyard venue, and gefting ready at two different locations without any hassle. My own wedding was the first wedding I've experienced the bride and groom being ahead of schedule. They were both so great at choosing locations in the yard for their vision, and being so efficiant that we got to enjoy half of our cocktail hour. I've been following Eastbrook Photography's work for two years, amd have fallen more and more in love with their work everytime new weddings get posted. I have not even been married two weeks, so I have only gotten to view a dozen or so of my own pictures, but based on my love for them, I am so looking forward to seeing the rest soon; I can hardly wait!Sent on 10/12/2017

Mike did an amazing job from the planning process all the way through the final product! He was always in communication with us and ready to hear our ideas. He has the perfect personality for a photographer; friendly, approachable, but not bossy. And his photography is at a very competitive price! I'm so glad he captured all the special moments of our big day!Sent on 07/05/2016

Mike is amazing to work with. We clicked instantly with him and our photos are proof with how comfortable he made us both for our engagement and for our wedding day. His team was great to work with and we I would use them again in a heartbeat.Sent on 05/31/2016

Professional, easy going, beautiful photos
We worked with Mike for our wedding in 2015, and he did a fantastic job documenting our special day. We enjoyed working with him so much that last month, we asked him to photograph another special time for our family - our maternity portraits! He is professional, fun to work with, and captures some great moments.Sent on 09/13/2020
Eastbrook Photography's reply:Thanks so much for the kind words Kelly! I absolutely loved working with you and Aaron on both occasions and am SO excited to meet the little one!

Eastbrook is a keeper!
When my fiance and I had to make drastic changes to our wedding plans this year (2020), we knew keeping Mike from Eastbrook Photography was one we couldn't let go. Despite our venue change (from one part of the state to another) and the many changes (date, location, time, you name it), Mike was generous and flexible to us throughout. He even kindly allowed us to re-do our original contract (9 hours) when all our plans changed. Though we didn't meet in person until our first-look photos , we instantly warmed to Mike and our mutual sense of humor which made taking natural and intimate photos easy with no nervousness or tension. Knowing we had Mike on board was a major stress-reliever and his gentle manner made us and our family feel right at home. Thank you, Mike!Sent on 09/21/2020

Mike was awesome!! He was so easy to communicate with and on the wedding day, we barely even knew he was there but the pictures clearly showed he was all over capturing every moment. Pictures turned out great and reasonably priced! Definitely recommend!Sent on 03/10/2018

Amazing photographer and great to work with!
When looking for a wedding photographer, there is a striking difference between someone who can do a good job documenting an event and someone who has an artistic vision for taking advantage of creative opportunities based on the conditions of your specific wedding (weather, lighting, surroundings, decorations, etc.) with the knowledge of how they will interact with everything from the framing of a shot to depth of field or exposure. It was really important to us to find a photographer who could do both, and after doing lots of looking around and eventually meeting with Mike in person, we decided on Eastbrook Photography.
The only issue we ran into over the course of planning and waiting on photos was that Mike could sometimes be a bit slow to respond to emails. One of those times (that was dealing with more time-sensitive questions) we eventually just called him, which did end up being an effective way to get everything worked out in short order, but there were a few times where we were left waiting on an email response for longer than we would have expected. We suspect he gets crazy busy during wedding season and emails just start to overwhelm. He was always very apologetic when his responses took a long time.
Mike was always extremely friendly, and on the day-of, he had the perfect blend of being professional while helping us relax and have a lot of fun, making working with him a joy; and the amazing and beautiful pictures of our wedding are exactly what we wanted! We got a two photographer package and the second photographer, Nikki, also did an amazing job—not only was she experienced and knowledgeable, but she helped make everything go smoothly and really went above and beyond to help us create some breathtaking photos (there’s a delicate athleticism and unique skill required to run, duck, and weave with a lit sparkler in the dark for something like 15 minutes straight!).
Overall, we were thrilled with our photographers and the resulting pictures! We would definitely recommend them to others.Sent on 11/08/2020

Eastbrook is a keeper!
Mike was absolutely wonderful to work with from start to finish. Professional, open, and a great conversationalist he made us feel right at home the moment we stepped into the camera focus on our wedding day. His kindness and humanity through the ups-and-downs of this past year and our ever-changing wedding plans was a welcome constant and anxiety-reliever. His photos beautifully captured our special day in a shortened period of time with maximum results. We will have a difficult time choosing which of many beautiful photos to print!Sent on 10/21/2020
