Amazing photos of our special day
We were extremely lucky to have Phototerra capture our wedding. We met with Tally ahead of time to talk about locations and timeline for both the wedding ceremony and the party. During this meeting, she not only helped us get clear on what kinds of photos we wanted for our wedding, but she also had great advice on the overall flow of what we had planed for the day, and she connected us with her network of great vendors (hair, makeup, flowers, etc.)
On the day of the wedding, they were on time, friendly, detail oriented, and professional. In a very efficient amount of time, they captured all the shots we hoped for, and even created some unique photos that we would never have dreamed of.
With a short turnaround, they delivered a sneak preview of our photos which we used to create beautiful thank you cards for our guests.
Overall, we are extremely satisfied with Phototerra’s staff, their service and the quality of photos they delivered for us. Our wedding was so special, and we are so grateful that it was so expertly captured by Phototerra.

Dream Wedding Photos from a Great Team!
You hire Phototerra because they are the best. Michael Greenberg and the Phototerra team brought their energy and creativity to my hometown of Windsor, Ontario over Labour Day Weekend 2018. Providing both Welcome Reception candid photography the night before, as well as full wedding day coverage for my multi-cultural wedding, across 6 venues in a brand new city was no small feat; yet Phototerra exceeded my expectations in every way. My photos are stunning. Their President, Tally Greenberg, was an excellent communicator, providing support with the development of my Wedding Day timeline and helpful tips for small details that would make my photos perfect. Michael and Tally at PhotoTerra took the time before my Wedding to talk to me on video calls to understand my vision, tour my family's home virtually and make last minute adjustments to their staffing plan to appropriately cover my schedule. In my opinion, they exhibited the utmost of professionalism throughout all events; it also helped that my guests really enjoyed mingling with them - they truly blended in, never taking away - only enhancing - everyone's experience I recommend PhotoTerra to any woman who wants to feel sexy and classy on her dream day. I recommend PhotoTerra to anyone looking for something DIFFERENT, who wants a unique eye, an experienced touch, a calming energy, and an efficient team. I recommend Michael Greenberg and PhotoTerra because they are the best.

Michael and the whole Phototerra team went over and above for our wedding ceremony and reception on July 1st 2018.
They were well spoken, had a very professional demeanor and made the whole experience more memorable. Before getting married I had met with Tally and Michael - they were very understanding about the style of photography I was looking for and the types of shots - which was executed flawlessly.
The photography knowledge and experience Michael brought to our wedding elevated it to a level we could not imagine. He is patient, accommodating, authentic, and most importantly, he loves what he does. Tally is amazing and very responsive. I would absolutely recommend them to all my friends and family and would personally use them again in the future.

Dear Neeta and Parry,

Michael's work is very unique and different from other wedding photographers. If you want romantic, vogue style type of pictures, he is your photographer. His team is amazing as well. I get email response back in a very timely fashion. I can easily call them and talk about the package and dates, preparation etc. Michael himself was available for a pre wedding consultation a few weeks before the wedding date so I could tell him exactly what type of pictures I wanted.
Phototerra Studio's reply:
Sanaz, Thank you for your kind words. It was a real pleasure working with you and your families. God Bless your union.
We are here for you and all your future milestones :)

Beyond mere photography - a dream!
When our daughter Sabrina was to be married in 2015, I discovered that the choice of a wedding photographer required a great deal of research, since it was of utmost importance to the couple. They were certainly not looking for fashionable, "celebrity" photographers!! ( Though we later discovered that Michael Greenberg is quite famous in his field.)
A short list of Portfolios was provided to immediate family, and a "secret ballot" revealed PHOTOTERRA as "our" choice. Not that it mattered, because Sabrina, as an artist, has unerring instincts - she would have prevailed!! She chose Michael!!
There are photographers and there are artists! Michael Greenberg is definitely the latter.
A visit to Phototerra's offices for a meeting with Tally Greenberg, Director and Business Manager, was the first step in a wonderful relationship - Tally is charming, a consummate professional, and will always steer you in the right direction, without imposing her tastes on yours. Aggressive salesmanship is definitely NOT her style.
We looked at so many beautiful portfolios of their work - but I will never forget my first glance at Michael's wedding photography. Exquisite and dream-like!
It had an "other-worldly" quality that matched Sabrina perfectly, and we knew then, that he would not merely document the moments.
I was immediately reminded of the words of Henri Cartier-Bresson - "To take photographs is to hold one's breath when all faculties converge in the face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a physical and intellectual joy."
This was an important journey that we would undertake together - Michael, Anouk, Natalia and Tally - we are forever grateful.
Phototerra captured every moment of the wedding festivities - the Engagement, Rehearsal Dinner, a private session for the couple, the church ceremony and reception, outdoor photographs, - in exquisite detail.
They are reliable professionals, and sensitive, caring individuals, who overcome every obstacle. YES - imagine my surprise (and trepidation) when I saw Michael at the foot of the altar in church, taking those all important pictures. He had somehow charmed the obnoxious ( I don't say this lightly) priest who had expressly forbidden photography except from behind a pillar or at an impossible distance!! Hallelujah!!
Thank you Michael and Tally, for being firm about the need to spend quality time with only the couple, after the church ceremony - Sabrina and I were in full agreement - the photographs reveal a beauty and intimacy that could not have been achieved in a crowd of family and friends.
Phototerra is not a budget, "fly-by-night" operation - they provide exceptional quality and service, going far beyond the call of duty! Their generosity is unexpected and touching. Most importantly, they recorded those spontaneous, unconventional moments that would escape most photographers.
I am personally grateful for those (rare) great spontaneous pictures of me (and my family) that Michael had to strive for - eyes open and not looking "goofy."
I am now working on the Wedding Album with Tally Greenberg - not an easy task for me, but she has unerring instincts and great respect for my wishes.
I would highly recommend the team at Phototerra - if you want unforgettable memories for posterity.
