“Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with from the day that we met him. He’s so easy to talk to and he definitely understood the assignment. His pricing is EXTREMELY affordable and he has several packages to choose from. I handed him a folder at our final meeting before the wedding with an outline and examples of pictures that I was looking for. While it caught him off guard he accepted my type A craziness. Mike and Amanda arrived at the venue on time, with my folder in hand, and got right to work. We already loved Mike. But Amanda… that girl did her thing! She was so sweet. She even helped me into my dress. She knew all of the poses and angles to get the style of pictures that we were looking for. Amanda made me feel like we had been friends forever. I was confident and calm while I worked with her. Both Mike and Amanda had the patience of saints. We had an extremely large bridal party full of strong personalities and if they ever got frustrated, we couldn’t tell. They stayed from noon til after midnight to make sure that they did not miss a single moment. Mike also brought another photographer to take photos of our guests and print them on site as favors and personally delivered the photos to each guest. I would totally recommend this option vs a traditional photo booth. Our guests LOVED it! Mike and his team were by far our favorite vendor and I can not wait to see the photos.” Reviewed On 1/02/2023 by Crystal K – Theknot.com
