    Amazing, Excellent Service, and very personal.

    Can not say enough about how happy we were with Michael's excellent service.
    We don't even remember Michael taking half of the pictures.
    Made our day a great success.
    We now have beautiful pictures to look at for years to come.

    Love over work

    My experience with Michael Steingard Photography was genuinely amazing. The original photographer who was supposed to shoot our wedding ended up getting COVID a week before our wedding and we were left with no photographer. Thankfully
    Michael and his wife Kailyn were available and shot our wedding instead and did an impeccable job. They made sure we got all the photos we wanted and you could tell they don鈥檛 just take photos for the money but they take photos because they are in love with the idea of the memories and artwork that all come together to create a beautiful photo that people will love. Michael and Kailyn are kind, funny, remarkable people and after seeing the end results of the photos I was honoured to have photos taken from them as they are truly artwork. They made my now husband and I included with the photography as they showed us photos after they were taken and made sure we had all the pictures we wanted before leaving. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for some highly skilled photographers who genuinely care about the people and things they are photographing.

    The best decision we made!

    If you're looking for a wedding photographer, Michael is the best person for the job. When I saw his photos of a friend's wedding, I knew he was the photographer I wanted, and thankfully he was available for our date. We got the Premium package, along with all the add-ons (full-day service, same-day slideshow, 'moving portrait' video, plus our special request to record our first dance), and it was worth every dollar. We can't stop looking at our photos, and we can't wait to see what the video looks like. Thank you Michael, and your assistant Matt as well, for capturing our day so beautifully!

    Outstanding!

    Michael was so amazing to work with for our wedding day. He was punctual on arrival, and helped us stay on track with our timeline throughout the day. He is creative with his shots, and took the time to make sure each one was perfect. You can tell that he enjoys what he does and that he puts his all into it, even at the end of a long day he was there and ready to snap the perfect pic!

    We were absolutely blown away by his day-of slideshow at our reception - they left us speechless and it was so nice to get a sneak peek of our photos so quickly! From what we have seen so far, the photos are absolutely incredible and better than we could have imagined. We can鈥檛 stop looking at them!

    Also want to thank Michael鈥檚 second shooter, Heather, for doing such a wonderful job! She was so fun to be around, and pretty much became an honorary bridesmaid as she made sure to help me with my veil and fix my dress if needed.

    Dream team!! Do not hesitate to book Michael for your wedding, you will absolutely be pleased that you did.

    Amazing!

    Our wedding on September 26 2021 was amazing, largely in part to Michael with his amazing work and vibe!!!

    We all had so much shooting with Michael, he was creative with the space and the light. We had such a natural, relaxed feeling the day of. We really can't say enough good things!!!

    There were hiccups in our day, as there always is. Our bridal suit changed and Michael walked into a stressed out bride but he found great lighting and spots to shoot in the new room (that he was seeing for the first time).

    Michael was creative with his shots. He showcased the venue beautifully, taking pictures with numerous different backgrounds and lighting.

    The slideshow he showed at the end of the night was jawdropping!! I am getting messages daily with compliments on the creative shots and candid vibe of the pictures.

    We had an amazing time at our wedding and are so lucky we had Michael there to capture the memories!
    Thank you again!!!!

    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!
