Magicians with angles and light
Hiring Shari and Mike to document our wedding was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. Photography was a top priority in our wedding budget, so we thought about who to hire for a very long time and we are so happy we ended up with Shari and Mike. They were so worth it!
Shari and Mike are a pleasure to work with, and met up with us in person to see if we clicked. (We did - it felt like we were hiring friends). They are complete magicians with interesting angles and using light and shadows to their advantage, and we loved this artistic aspect to their photos. We weren't looking for whitewashed overly-lightened wedding photos because it didn't seem to fit with our wild west-coast wedding venue.
On the day of the wedding, Mike and Shari were a joy to spend time with. They handled minor scheduling snafus like pros and communicated with our wedding planner the entire day, so we felt like we were just floating around and experiencing every moment without worry, and we think the photos show how present and grounded we felt.
The wedding photos we received felt like pieces of art, and they documented our story in ways we couldn't have imagined. Half of the photos we didn't even realize at the time they were taking! Their exceptional talent meant they could handle all manners of lighting - bright sunshine, deep shadows, forest backdrops, yellow sunsets, artificial lighting from the DJ (see photos). Plus... we got the bonus of seeing Mike work his magic on the dancefloor, which got our guests into the mood to dance the night away!Sent on 27/08/2019

Shari+ Mike are absolutely amazing! We knew from the minute they sent us a video explaining how they were so excited to meet us and hop on a phone call that they were special. There talent will blow you away but their kindness/who they are as people will blow you even more away. They bring so much joy to your day, they are freaking hilarious, incredibly professional and their dance moves are just the cherry on top. Like so many of our wedding guests have said "Shari & Mike felt like lifelong friends." They just have that affect on people. They will bring ALL the feels and gift you with the most beautiful pictures you've ever seen and will cherish for years to come.
Thank you for being some of the best humans and saying "yes" to this gift because you were meant for this.Sent on 04/02/2020

The decision to hire Shari and Mike as our wedding photographers was possibly the best one we made (other than marrying each other)! From the start they were warm, welcoming and chill, we were looking for more of a candid vibe and with one look at their work we could tell their skill behind the camera is breathtaking. On the day of they were supportive and encouraging, I had broken my foot a week before our wedding and they found a way to make the photos seem effortless and fun despite my lack of mobility. Looking back at the images that were captured they are more than just snapshots, they are emotions encapsulated forever that speak to the joy and love that surrounded us that day. If you are even considering hiring them what are you waiting for... do it.Sent on 07/07/2019

We cannot say enough great things about Shari + Mike. They are not only fantastic photographers, but amazing people. When we were trying to decide on photographers for our wedding, it was really important that we not only love the style of their photos but also their personalities. After our first meeting, we knew that Shari + Mike were the right choice for us. We were not used to being photographed, but Shari + Mike put us at ease and made it a really fun experience. We had such a great time hanging out with them during our engagement shoot and at our wedding, and we are super happy with our photos!Sent on 12/02/2015
