Mike was our primary photographer for our wedding.
Fantastic work from Mike, our primary photographer! We love our pictures! He was very dedicated and professional while being subtle and taking great candid shots! He was able to capture all the best moments and take pictures in the best light even though we were behind in schedule. Quick and efficient worker. Thanks Mike!

The process of hiring a photographer for my wedding was an intimidating one. I spoke to a lot of people who seemed very interested in my business, but not particularly interested in my wedding. The tone was much different with Kathi and Mike. I immediately got the sense that I was not just hiring a photographer—I was hiring a guest. They wanted to be at my wedding, they wanted to celebrate with us, and they wanted to collaborate on the vision we had of that day.
On the day of the wedding Mike was the first person at the venue and had already begun scoping out the grounds. He was relaxed, excited about the location, and put myself and my bride at ease immediately. As guests began to arrive, Mike demonstrated yet another underappreciated quality, his charm. He took the opportunity to introduce himself to guests, chat about backgrounds and interests, and get to know the people he would be photographing. Again, I need to stress how nice it was to have someone who is not just a man on the clock, he was a guest.
When it came time for photos, of course, it rained. No problem for Mike. He handled like he had been through it a thousand times (and probably has). The end result was the same—beautiful photos.
During the reception Mike continued to pleasantly interact with guests while quietly moving around the space and capturing candid shots throughout the night.
I am so happy to have had the pleasure of working with Kathi and having Mike shoot our wedding. Their passion for photography really comes across and the end product is absolutely stunning.
My advice for anyone looking to hire a photographer is this—there are a lot of very talented people out there who can deliver excellent photos. In that competitive pool it is important to look for the those special few who offer something more.
Mike is something more.

A whirlwind experience!
Mike was amazing on our wedding day, which took place the day after the Ottawa tornadoes. Our venue lost power and we had to relocate our reception, Mike was amazing at keeping us calm and focused to grab some great photos. He also went above and beyond by attempting to help us find a new reception venue, which his efforts were greatly appreciated. The photos were phenomenal, and were delivered in a timely manner.

Mike was very professional and was great at putting everyone at ease with each picture. Great with kids as well. He took the time needed with each shot and really embraced what we were looking to capture with the wedding pictures.

Mike's photos were great. We are very happy with them. He must be part monkey judging by the shots that he got and how quickly and quietly he moved around the venue! He got a variety of different locations, even though we didn't want to stray too far from the venue or be gone too long.
Mike Lupine was a great photographer for a solid price! He was very good at getting the best shots of my husband and I, before and during the ceremony as well as throughout the reception. Also, Mike was very patient with family members who wanted to snap some pictures, too. And he even managed to get several group shots of 30-150 people, which make for treasured keepsakes for all of our guests. We loved having Mike shoot our wedding! We would definitely recommend him 100%

Mike was amazing!! My husband and I had the most incredible wedding day, and Mike captured the emotion in every moment. The photos are a perfect representation of our day. We have a number of friends who were also recently married, and after seeing our photos they have all commented on how envious they are. As a couple, we expected that photography would be a bit of a challenge because I love the traditional shots and my husband wanted something more original, but somehow Mike found a delicate balance between the two styles and we both are thrilled with the final product!
Furthermore, the price was right and the turnaround time on the photos after the wedding was very impressive!

Mike's photography is beautiful! He captured the special moments of Josh and my wedding in such a delicate and creative manner. His professionalism is outstanding, and his fun and relaxed personality made him perfect for our wedding, which involved our dog.

Mike was absolutely wonderful. He is talented and really easy to work with. We can't thank him enough for the beautiful moments he captured of our wedding through his lens. Thank you!
