    Highly Recommend

    One of the best wedding decisions we made was hiring Michael. My husband and I are not picture people but both felt so comfortable working with him. Our wedding day flew by but Michael captured the day so perfectly we felt like we were able to relive it through his photography. He is easy to work with, creative, talented, and professional. Our pictures are everything we dreamed of having and more. You won't regret choosing Michael!

    Responsive, Affordable Photographer - for a Photographer!

    Michael and Kailyn made our wedding day so fun and easy! I am a photographer myself and I hate getting my photo taken .. oh the irony. But I put my trust in Michael and was not disappointed! He was funny, always had ideas for posing, made us feel completely at ease and even though it was only 5 degrees outside (October wedding in Ontario!) I was able to relax. Cold, but relaxed! I didn't even notice him for the ceremony and reception, so the sneak skills are a big plus! In addition to doing an incredible job on our photos, Michael helped us livestream our wedding and made it possible for family and friends to be part of our day. He trouble-shot, problem solved, and did it all while being a great communicator and keeping me in the loop. By the time it got to editing our photos I felt so confident in his ability that I wasn't even picky about the editing style like I always thought I would be! And for good reason - the photos are beautiful. I cry every time I look back at them. He captured the spirit of our COVID wedding. I had recently gone through a cancer diagnosis and treatment and had a giant scar running across my neck that I chose not to try to cover up. I was a bit worried about receiving the photos as I knew my scar would be visible but the joy that Michael managed to capture far outweighed any self-consciousness I felt. There's this one photo - my husband and I standing defiantly in this beautiful scenery, finally married after enduring 8 months apart, going through cancer, and finally being reunited. It just captured the epitome of our strength, and that's not an easy thing to do. I should know... I am a photographer after all ;) Point being, hire Michael. Just do it. You won't regret it.

    Humble & Outstanding Talent

    Michael is must select - from unreal talent to his humble nature/approach, he made our experience a once in a lifetime event. He connects with you on a personal level and makes the professional photography journey feel easy and natural - which is a hard task! We had so many compliments from family and friends throughout the night and afterwards. Our previews and slideshow were an absolute highlight. He captures the most unique moments with an artist eye/lens.

    The only photographer we considered

    Michael met us at the venue with camera in hand ready to start taking pictures! He created a 'sunset' on a cloudy winter day with his equipment for some gorgeous pictures. He captured beautiful candid photos of our guests during our wedding ceremony that we wouldn't have gotten to see otherwise. He made being the centre of attention seem easy. We only ever considered working with him!

    The Best Photographers!

    Our wedding day was perfect, in large part thanks to Michael and Kailyn! We spent tons of time with them on the big day doing elaborate and custom photo shoots and they were creative, kind, and extremely patient. It was like hanging with friends we've known all our lives.

    Michael and Kailyn took the time to FaceTime us multiple times before the wedding which was so helpful. The final photos far exceeded our expectations and we will cherish our beautiful memories forever. Our friends and family were blown away by the photos...they truly look like they belong in a bridal magazine!

    Thanks Michael and Kailyn!

    Amazing Photographers!

    We loved our wedding photos, our engagement photos, but most of all we loved working with Michael & Kailyn! From the very beginning-- booking our date, engagement photos, sorting out the day-- to the very end, we enjoyed the whole experience. Michael & Kailyn made us feel very comfortable, and they are very fun to work with. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this amazing team to anyone!!

    Michael and Kailyn are AMAZING!

    Michael and Kailyn were so so so awesome to work with. They are both such easy going and friendly people that they make you feel extremely comfortable while taking your photo and asking you to pose certain ways. They both like certain types of shots so it gives such a nice mixture of candid, artistic and portrait style photos. They came highly recommended to me by a client who had used them for two of her children's weddings and I can definitely see why. The pictures are phenomenal! If I ever need a photographer for anything in the future, it will always be through them.
    Thank you so much for helping me feel more and more comfortable having my picture taken. You guys were perfect and I'm so happy you were a part of our day. Thank you thank you thank you!!

    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!

    Michael Steingard

    Our wedding was 6 months ago and I am still not over how fantastic Michael was. I could prattle on for days about my love for him and his work, but I will spare you. The complements we get on our photos is ALMOST embarrassing because they are ALL due entirely to Michael’s undeniable talent. If he is available on your wedding day, book him now and thank me later.
