Michelle and Mark are absolutely amazing! From the moment we met them, we knew they’d be perfect for our wedding day. They truly captured our day perfectly and my husband and I fell in love with our wedding photos! We highly recommend them and will definitely have them photograph our future special moments.Sent on 12/29/2018

Great wedding photographer, pleasant to work with!
Michelle is great, we got our wedding photos back very quickly and I can tell she put in time and efforts with the editing. She's very detail oriented and she's basically your second wedding coordinator, love her!

Stop!! Look no further you will not find a better photographer than Michelle Johnson! She photographed my wedding on June 23rd, 2018. She and her husband Mark are so much fun to work with. The sneak peak pictures are amazing. There are pictures that I hadn't even thought of taking that capture the day so beautifully! The day goes by so quickly, but when you have such great pictures it just brings you right back to reliving the day!! If you want not only amazing pictures to remember your special day, but truly two great, nice, fun, people Michelle and Mark are the only choice!! I would give them 100 stars if available!!!

Michelle and Mark were the photographers for our wedding in April, and there are not enough words to express how impressed I was by their work. Working with Michelle in the months before the wedding was fun and stress free. She is so creative with her ideas and was able to incorporate everything that my husband and I wanted. On the day of the wedding, Mark and Michelle were incredibly organized and kept to a schedule that allowed pictures to be taken of all of my guests and family, as well as all of the details and events. All of our pictures turned out beautifully. They were able to capture all of the joy and love throughout the day. Mark and Michelle are genuinely amazing and I would highly recommend them.

Fantastic experience all around!!!
First, let me say that giving Michelle and Mark 5 stars don't seem enough... they deserve 10!! They provided the photography for my daughter's wedding last spring and we were amazed by their kindness and expertise. They are the kind of people who you feel like you have known forever even though you may have only just met them. Their prices were fair and we never felt pressured to buy more. Michelle is quick to respond to all communication, which I always appreciate. I would highly recommend Michelle and Mark to photograph any event.Sent on 11/28/2018

AMAZING!! My Husband and I could not be more pleased with Michelle & Mark! I was debating between 2 Photographers for my wedding at Strawberry Farms and once I spoke to Michelle over the phone I knew she was the one! They are the sweetest, funniest, most genuine people, and most importantly GREAT photographers. Michelle keeps you and your wedding party on track all day and is so easy to work with and be around. We received our sneak peek pictures quickly and they were amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better pair to capture our most important day. Michelle and Mark will be the first people I call the next time we need a Photographer!

There are so many wonderful things that I have to say about Michelle and her husband Mark! They photographed our recent October wedding in Temecula and did SUCH an amazing job! Not only did the photographs come out beautifully, but they had a genuine smile on their faces the whole day and evening. Michelle and her husband truly enjoy what they do, and it was evident in how much fun they seemed to have while photographing our wedding day. They are both professional and genuinely good people. They made sure to capture all the photos that we wanted, and helped us to create photos that we didn't even know we needed! Neither my husband or I are used to being photographed often, but thankfully Michelle helped us to create some truly beautiful poses/photographs. It is a big task to capture such an important snap shot in a person's life, but Michelle and her husband seemed to do it without issue or reservation. I am looking forward to a time when we can utilize their services again!

If I could give 7 stars I would. Michelle photographed a friend's wedding and when I saw the photos I knew i wanted her to do mine. Michelle and her husband Mark were everything you want in a photographer- they make you feel beautiful, were great dealing with family members and guests and take unreal photos! I loved just having Michelle there and didn't want to say goodbye. Her creativity and professionalism shine through in each of her photos. She captured everything I could have hoped for and her style is just perfect. She's a gem!
Samantha · Married on 10/06/2017
Michelle and Mark are amazing!! I absolutely adore them both. Words can not begin to express how grateful my husband and I are for all they did. Aside from being two of the sweetest people we've ever met, their professionalism, and attention to detail, greatly exceeded our expectations. It's only been a week since our wedding and Michelle already emailed "sneak peak" photos - they are GORGEOUS! Michelle will, most definitely, be our family photographer from now on.
Kelly · Married on 07/23/2017
What can I say? Michelle is AMAZING! She photographed a friend's wedding five or so years ago and I was so impressed I wanted her to photograph mine. Not only is she the sweetest lady around, she's an amazing photographer. She catches all of the details and makes you feel natural and comfortable. She's worth every penny! Love you Michelle!!
Kirsten · Married on 06/26/2017
I had the privilege of working with Michelle for my wedding on June 8th at the stone house at Temecula Creek Inn. I have worked with photographers before however, Michelle was an absolute dream to work with. Very professional but also fun and great to work with. She and her husband captured every little detail that I had wanted to see in my wedding pictures and I didn't have to ask her for a single one, she just knew. I cant recommend her enough for a photographer. She's amazing!e!

Hello, my name is Yolanda Gonzalez. I had the best experience with Michelle. From day one that we met I knew she was the one. Michelle is very friendly & loving. Michelle is attentive to all of your needs. Pays attention to detail. Very communicative. Michelle is a reliable & responsible person. Very outgoing. Joyful. Always has a smile on her face. It felt like I've known her for years. I remember being nervous the day of my wedding & she knew how to keep me together. My whole family & bridal party enjoyed her very much. My photos are amazing. Great clarity. Beautiful colors. It's like a painting coming to life. I love my photos. The best. I from now on will be using Michelle in the near future. Always. I won't have anyone else photograph me professionally, unless it's Michelle. So worth it. Thank you again Michelle. You're amazing!. XO

My husband and I would highly recommend using Michelle as your wedding photographer. She is extremely professional and the sweetest. Within just a couple of days she sent us a sneak preview of our photos and we were totally blown away. We fell in love with every shot. She made the day run so smoothly and totally stress free. We look back at our photos everyday and want to jump right back to the day, she created the most stunning memories for us. What a true talent and gem in the industry. Thank you Michelle for making our wedding day so special and giving us the most beautiful pictures.
We love and appreciate you so much!

Michell is AWESOME! We met her when she photographed my sisters wedding and were SO HAPPY with her work! I hired her immediately for my wedding. Her daughter and Husband are a great extension of her. Michelle has a way of leaving a personal lasting impression which I found so important given that it’s one of the biggest days of your life! I highly recommend her, you won’t be disappointed!
Karen · Married on 09/30/2016
Michelle is absolutely wonderful! Not only is she a talented photographer, she made the experience of being photographed so fun and enjoyable! Michelle made everyone in our wedding party feel comfortable and she was able to capture our special day perfectly. My husband and I were blown away by the beautiful photos she took! I highly recommend booking Michelle for your photography needs!
Monica · Married on 08/06/2016
Michelle is amazing! She took both our engagement and wedding photos. My husband and I were nervous about taking our photos professionally taken but Michelle made us super comfortable and guided us to amazing photos. Michelle and her husband were such a pleasure to work with. I will continue to use Michelle Johnson Photography for any photos that I need in the future.
Lisa · Married on 08/29/2015
Having Michelle Johnson Photography capture our special day (and our engagement photos) was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding! She captured our day perfectly, and kept everything light and fun throughout the afternoon.
Michelle's ability to make everyone look natural and comfortable in front of the camera is TOP NOTCH. My husband is not a huge fan of taking photos, and he loved working with Michelle and her team.
Additionally, we used Michelle Johnson Photography for our old-fashioned photo booth, and our guests had a great time with it! They gave each guest a copy of their photo strip (which made a great favor), and gave us an album and a digital copy of all of the pics at the end of the event.
We will use Michelle Johnson Photography for all of our family photo needs. I wouldn't trust anyone else to capture these special moments!

For our wedding, the vendor we worked with the most, and for the longest period of time, was our photographer. Because of this, we are so very happy we chose Michelle Johnson as our photographer because we got to spend all that time with such a hard-working and caring professional. She showed her level of dedication and care for her job, and the couples she works with, right away. As the wedding day came closer, Michelle was integral in helping us plan the timeline of the day. On the day of our wedding, Michelle was an absolute professional. She worked so well with her team and the videographer to ensure we stayed on time without sacrificing any shots. She kept us on schedule and directed us and the wedding party so perfectly. We got the full 1800 (yes, 1800) photos from the wedding day and we were just so ecstatic! My husband and I were so amazed by the quality of the photos, we couldn’t believe they were actually ours as they look like something from a magazine! Not only did we have so many photos to relive that day and treasure always, but the photos were just so beautiful and her eye is just phenomenal. We chose her in the beginning because her work was just so beautiful and exactly what we envisioned for our wedding photos. And she absolutely, 100% (and then some) delivered! We were so happy with our photos, we could not have been more thankful to her! She gave us our dream photos, and thus the best memories ever of a magical day that goes all too fast. Michelle was more than our photographer. She was our guidance, our therapist, our planner, our friend. I have so much love for this woman and infinite gratitude for her hard work, generosity, and kindness. I would recommend Michelle Johnson Photography to anyone and everyone! If you couldn’t already tell from this review – you will NOT be disappointed! I would give Michelle Johnson Photography 10 stars if I could!
Caitlin · Married on 07/11/2015
Michelle was absolutely amazing! We were planning the wedding from out of state which can bring challenges, but Michelle was so warm that it felt like we had known her forever! She made things very comfortable on our wedding day, and made picture taking fun! She was also great with my large family, making sure we got all the shots we needed quickly and efficiently. She had really creative ideas, and we loved every single one of our pictures. Very reasonable pricing, and owning all the digital images has been fantastic. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding!
Karsen · Married on 06/05/2015
Michelle is just the greatest photographer and we loved her!! First, I was from out of state and trying to schedule and plan everything and she was so sweet and accommodating. I also wanted to take pictures before my wedding, Pre-wedding romantics, and she hadn't done something like that before and just ROCKED it!! She took pictures of my fiancé (at the time) and I at the beach and brought her husband and daughter so I had a million pictures that are just amazing. Then she edited those and got all those back to me before my wedding the following week. At the wedding her and her daughter came and both photographed the big day so I had the most amazing pictures. She was so cute and nice and her daughter was so nice as well. She also had a surprise for me at the end of my wedding day and gave me a bunch of SUPER cute polaroids of my pictures at the beach and from my big day! She went above and beyond! I felt like we were best friends by the end of it all. I absolutely loved them and am recommending them to all my friends who are getting married in Southern California.

Michelle has been my family photographer for over 2 decades. She has taken family portraits, two daughters' weddings, and will photograph my son's wedding this November. Her skill, creativity, and professional mannerisms are unprecedented. We have always been thrilled with her work! After so many years of including Michelle in our most precious events, my whole family considers Michelle a close friend.
Greg · Married on 05/23/2015
Michelle is an unbelievable photographer and a complete professional. She did an amazing job photographing and coordinating photos with the wedding party, family and friends. I highly recommend Michelle Johnson Photography to capture your wedding memories.
Juliana · Married on 12/20/2014
Michelle and her team were AMAZING! We had a very easy time transitioning from one shot to the next at our different locations. Michelle has a great charisma to her and a smile that simply makes it pleasant and great to do business with her.
Our wedding pictures turned out amazing. Thank You Michelle and team!
Heather · Married on 09/27/2014
Michelle and Mark absolutely made our wedding day! MJP was referred to me by our wedding Coordinator Toni, and I am forever grateful to her. Michelle is an absolute dream to work with. She is professional and very easy to deal with on the business side. Her process is smooth and well thought out - she's quite simply a pro. And when it comes to the photos, there's nothing else to say other than WOW! Michelle and Mark captured moments on the day of our wedding that will live in our hearts forever. They totally understood us and enhanced the entire experience. If you have the chance to work with this stellar team, run, don't walk!

If you are searching for a photographer, look no further because Michelle Johnson Photography is it. We had the pleasure of having Michelle and Mark capture our wedding and are grateful to have found photographers for all of life’s special occasions. They’re also two of the nicest people you’ll ever come across.
From the very first meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Michelle and Mark are fun and energetic, down to earth, kind, and professional. They took the time to really get to know us, to collaborate with us, and they had a genuine vested interest in making sure our concerns were addressed and we got all of the photos we wanted. After our initial meeting and engagement session, we knew photography was going to be the least of our worries on our special day.
We were so impressed with their ability to blend into the day, their efficiency to keep things on track, and ability to keep family/wedding party engaged. They interact so well with all of the other vendors, coordinators, and guests. To this day we get compliments not only on how amazing our wedding photos turned out but on how funny and warm-hearted our wedding photographers were.
Michelle and Mark’s talent is self-evident in the work they produce. They have an impeccable eye for capturing details and moments that are otherwise lost in the whirlwind of the day. They created many, many priceless memories to cherish and share. We are beyond pleased with the quality of all of the photographs.
Myles (their son who is just as fun, kind, and professional) manages the retro photo booth, with props, which was an absolute hit with all of our guests.
After all is said and done, what’s really left are the photographs to look back on and Michelle Johnson Photography exceeded all expectations we had for capturing our wedding day. We highly recommend the extraordinary MJP team to anyone and everyone looking for professional photographers.
