Wedding in the Forest
Confession: Michael and Kailyn were the photographers for our good friend’s wedding 4 years ago! I remember seeing the wedding pictures and I was absolutely blown away with the whimsical and natural feel of the wedding photos. Over the last 4 years, and many friends getting married, I never saw any wedding photos that came close to Michael and Kailyn’s artistic and unique style! As soon as I got engaged, I secured a wedding location and immediately contacted Michael and Kailyn with my fingers crossed they were available!
Words cannot express how deeply grateful we are to Michael and Kailyn for joining us and capturing our wedding day! From jump, Michael and Kailyn were so quick to reply to emails, call and discuss the wedding day, and listen to our vision for what we wanted to capture! Michael was always available to review the wedding timeline and provide feedback – the advice was so very helpful to provide a realistic guide to our day!
Day of, Michael and Kailyn were amazing! They fit right in to the chaos, laughter and good times! Their calming presence was reassuring. They are natural leaders, to make sure they are getting the right shot with the correct people. Furthermore, they are kind, flexible, willing for anything, and quick to make sure everyone is engaged – including the children in the bridal party! From meowing to our niece to get her to smile, to standing on a tall log to capture a group shot, Michael and Kailyn went above and beyond to work with our group and capture the most incredible wedding memories!
In reviewing the wedding photos, we both feel such tremendous gratitude – the candid shots of emotion, laughter and love are breathtaking! These photos not only represent our wedding, but all the people we love in the world coming together to witness a very special moment. We will treasure these photos for a lifetime.
Michael and Kailyn immediately create an essence of trust and fun, and we are so thankful we had the opportunity to spend our incredible wedding day with these two!

The minute you stepped on the grounds of our venue , you knew exactly where to go to get the perfect shots ! We loved how passionate you were ... from the docks to the Toronto skyline ...we had so much fun shooting with you. You can really tell how much you love photography ! We were so excited when it was sunset and nighttime so we could go take more cool shoots with you !! You were so easy going and flexible , we have received so many compliments from our guests about how awesome our photographer was ! The slideshow was wonderful touch at the end of the night for our guests to see ! You helped capture everything so beautifully , we are still in awe over how beautiful the photos are !

We LOVE our photos!!!
Michael Steingard did our wedding and engagement photos and was an absolute pleasure to work with. What really sets Michael apart from other photographers is his ability to connect with people and deliver outstanding customer service.
Michael's fun personality made the process of photography a truly memorable part of our wedding day. Michael instantly made my husband and I feel comfortable; we both felt like we could be ourselves with Michael, and we believe this made a big difference in allowing Michael to capture us in a natural, joyful state. Also, Michael memorized the names of everyone in our wedding party, which made the process of photography more engaging and efficient.
Michael is also fantastic with kids, which was so helpful to us! We had multiple children in our wedding party that were initially camera shy, and at times even grumpy, but Michael cheered the kids up when they were on the verge of a melt down, and got them all to smile in the right direction for our wedding photos.
Furthermore, Michael has a unique ability to roll with the punches and capture candid, creative shots in some of the most unsuspected places and situations. For example, it rained sporadically throughout our wedding day. Initially we were very disappointed, but thanks to Michael, we’re grateful we had rain! Michael was able to redeem the disappointing weather by working with the rain to create some of our favourite outdoor photos from the day!
Michael had an ever-present smile, a great attitude, and a genuine warmth whenever he was working with us. He even made a surprise coffee run on the way to our reception after my husband joked that he would love to have a coffee! Michael was also flexible to accommodate our timelines and ensure that we captured the photos we wanted, while still maintaining flexibility to capture candid creative shots that we love!
Michael also had a very fast turnaround time. Michael advises that he takes 8-10 weeks to deliver final edits, but we were very pleased to receive a link for sample photos the day after our wedding. Michael also played a slideshow at our wedding reception during our dance with a collection of photos from throughout the day. The photos looked fantastic and it was nice for our guests to enjoy seeing a summary of the day while celebrating with us.
We cannot recommend Michael Steingard photography enough, and if we ever need photography again, we will be calling Michael!

Wedding at the Westover Inn
Everything with Michael was perfect. Our wedding was in St. Mary’s and I got ready in London. He was at my house to capture some amazing shots of me getting ready, including a photo shoot in my Jimmy Choos ;) During the day Michael was a wizard getting shots that I didn’t even see him getting! He had a beautiful slide show midway through the night that was breath taking. To have a compete digital
Slide show of 60 photos that I could share with family and friends two days after the wedding to tie me over until the high resolution pictures are ready?!? Simply amazing. Thank you so much for your talent and professionalism on our special day. The kids loved you, our family and friends loved you, and so do we!

Michael photographed our local wedding and we were beyond happy with the photos he took. Michael is extremely personable and friendly. He is able to pull natural and real emotions out and capture those special intimate moments. He was super friendly and put us both at ease immediately and even helped to calm any stress we were feeling that day. His photos are more than pictures, they're truly art. He has such a creative eye and knows exactly how to capture each and every moment. We would highly recommend Michael to be your wedding photographer. We were beyond happy with all of our pictures and our moving portrait, he did a fantastic job!
