Mike Ossola was our wedding photographer and he far exceeded all of our expectations. I’ve been told before that photography is something you either have an ‘eye’ for or you don’t—and Mike has got one hell of an ‘eye’ for it. We are currently having a very difficult time picking out our favorite shots because there are so many we love… Mike not only has the equipment required to capture stunning shots throughout the course of a sunset but also the knowledge of what to use when. Our formal shots with family and wedding party were phenomenal—but the one’s he managed to capture when no one knew he was around were just unreal!! We will forever be grateful for his services—you simply can’t beat this level of professionalism.

Mike was amazing! We live out of state and his flexibility and responsiveness when it came to our consultations and meetings was outstanding. He guided us in our posed shots but was a ninja the rest of the day. We never saw him during the reception and ceremony but when the pictures came back he was there every moment! The quality was amazing and he captured so many special moments. I would DEFINITELY recommend!

Mike was so accommodating when it came to finding a photographer willing to photograph our sunrise wedding. We were on a tight timeline and he was there early and ready to capture the best day of our lives. It was a very small, intimate ceremony and he got all of the greatest moments on film. We hired him to do our engagement session a few months prior and he rocked those shots too! We couldn't be happier with Mike and our photos!!

Words can't express the level of skill and professionalism Mike brings to events.. He literally captured our wedding perfectly AND at a place he had never been to before. He has a keen eye for beautiful picture ideas, and operates at a good pace when working. Super personable and friendly.. I would hire him a million times over!!

Mike made my wedding day memorable. I love looking back at our photos (daily) & showing them off! I love seeing the happiness that he was able to capture in all the photos. He really was able to capture the fun party vibe of my wedding through each photo. I highly recommend him. You won't regret it!!

We hired Mike to photograph our destination wedding in Puerto Rico! His attention to detail, flexibility, creative eye and overall professionalism really sets him apart from other photographers. We are so grateful to have these photos to look back on for forever and I'm so thankful that we had Mike by our side to capture all the special moments of our day. Mike was also able to return our photos back to us quickly which was so great because we were able to relive our wedding soon after the event had ended. You won't regret hiring Mike...the moments and photos he captures are truly spectacular!

Mike is a fantastic photographer! He has a great eye, extremely talented. professional and a joy to work with! He was able to capture all the different aspects of our special day and spent a lot of time with us to make sure we captured everything we wanted. We LOVE all of our wedding photos. He communicated with us every step of the way. We recieved our edited photos in a timely manner and he even sent teaser photos to us before he was done with all of them to get us excited to see the end result. I would highly reccomend Mike as a photographer, he will NOT disappoint.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike! He was very professional and easy to work with! Mike was very flexible with my husband & my busy schedules! We are really grateful to have him as a part of our wedding!!! We would definitely recommend Mike as your photographer for any event you have!

If you are hunting for the perfect wedding photographer, you have found him. Mike was the chronicler of our day. He was involved with the wedding party when he needed to be, but respectfully became part of the crowd when it was appropriate. Based on the photos, though, it seems like he was everywhere at once - I don't know how one man could catch so many great moments. If you haven't already seen it, go find his gallery; you will understand why I say with confidence that Mike Ossola is the right photographer for your perfect day.

Mike is a DEAR friend of mine so I would be crazy to have not used him for our wedding. He has an artistic and beautiful style to his photography. He does not just snap photos, but captures moments and priceless memories. Our photos are outstanding- every single one of them. Mike, you know how much you mean to me- thank you again and again. I highly recommend using him for your photography needs!!!

Mike was recommended to us by friends of ours who used him for their wedding...and we were so happy we flew him in for our wedding! We had a very large bridal party and I was very selective about my pictures, and Mike went out of his way to make sure we had creative, expressive pictures that truly captured our special day and how much we love each other! I would highly recommend his photography services to anyone!

As a maid of honor, I hired Mike Ossola for my sister's wedding in Poland. He was simply amazing and captured every single special moment of the trip. It was the first time in 40 years that my dad's family, all of his siblings, mother, and nieces and nephews, met all together, and Michael got to capture every single amazing aspect of this beautiful event. After shooting a two day long wedding, he went with us to Italy to capture my sister and brother in law's honeymoon. It was simply magical. I cannot imagine hiring a more professional and talented photographer to capture my sister's special day, than Michael Ossola. Being European, I am so amazed with his talent and professionalism, and is someone has any doubts, please contact me, and I will assure you, there is no better photographer to shoes than Mike Ossola.

Brittney · Married on 04/05/2013
We truly love the work that he did the day of our wedding and on the photos we received! He was able to really capture how great the whole event was for my husband and I, and for our guests, too!
Ashley · Married on 02/16/2013
Mike provides an absolutely phenomenal service and we could not be more pleased with the outcome of both our engagement and wedding photos. We were definitely a harder couple to please as we were trying to stray away from traditional photos, but we were able to work out some really great ideas (and even snuck in some traditional photos for family), and Mike was always willing to accommodate. I wish I had other excuses to work with him, and would highly recommend his service to any couple!

Has your face ever hurt from smiling too much? Has it ever hurt from smiling at pictures? That's how beautifully Mike Ossola captured our wedding. As anticipated, he captured the essence, the feel of our wedding. So much so that I relive the day when I look at his photos. I was actually disappointed when I was done looking at them because there weren't more!
Mike was prompt and professional. He was also open to suggestions, which I loved. In addition, he offered practical solutions and suggestions, based on his not inconsiderable experience.
I would highly recommend him for your wedding!

Mike was great to work with. I first met Mike for a photo shoot for my business. He really impressed us with all of his equipment and care in taking the shots that we needed.
We then asked Mike to do our engagement photos in Ybor City. It was so much fun and very easy. He really takes great care of all aspects of the shoot. He checked the weather and made sure we wouldn't be too hot and also picked a time to get the best natural lighting. It was just what I was looking for.
Our wedding photos were so great. We had two put on canvas' for our home and Mike also had a special image put on special paper that gives it a metallic look that really pops.
Check out his website and facebook to see all his work. Book him early because I am sure he will be filling up. If you have any questions, you can reach out to me.
Carlos · Married on 03/03/2012
First of all I just want to personally thank Mike for everything. I almost felt like he was a friend that I just invited to my wedding, but truth be told I did not mind paying Mike for his services. Everybody in my family is still talking about how awesome our photos came out, I used Mikes work for my wallpaper on my phones, laptop, posters, my parents have even used my wedding pictures for their wallpapers lol. You have to go with Mike with all your photography needs, he made them perfect, wouldnt trust another person. Good on you Mike, May God continue to bless you and may you give the attention you gave us to others on their special day!
( I could write more but I hate writing reviews, I am only doing this because I believe in Mike, his work and his ethics.)

Mike Ossola photography did the photos for my December 17th wedding. He is fabulous!! He is very easy to work with and takes beautiful photos. My husband and I aren't exactly the best models, but Mike made us feel very comfortable and he is really fun to be around with great energy. He is very easy to get ahold of and he met all of his deadlines without a problem. He is also very punctual and arrived on time and ready to go the day of our wedding. Anyone in the Tampa/St. Pete area should really check out Mike Ossola photography!!
