Michael was completely wonderful. He did exactly what I asked for - got all of the formal, posed pictures, and then was so unobtrusive that I forgot he was there! And the photos were still amazing. I don't know how he did it. I got a lot of compliments on his willingness to take posed pictures for different guests. I told them they could grab him and ask for a photo, and he was completely find to go along with that. That was really important to me and I appreciated how well he treated our guests, and our friends and family throughout the whole day. He is very soft spoken, but his works speaks for itself. I recommend Michael to anyone - especially brides on a budget, and they will meet or beat any estimate you give them. And I would recommend Michael if you prefer a photographer that won't ask you to do stupid poses that irritate your wedding party. He gets the job done, and everyone enjoys themselves.
