Below is just a few thank you cards I’ve received over the years. Read for yourself!

What our customers are saying:


Mike is amazing he knows his stuff. He goes above and beyond to make everything perfect. His niece Fay is amazing as well. She works side by side with him. She has an eye for great shots as well as Mike. We got two photographers for great deal, all copyrights flash drive, engagement photo session, a beautiful hardcover book with 20 pages of photos and a video. You can’t beat this deal. Plus the work is spot on. Mike goes out of his way to accommodate you. So many compliments on my photos. You won’t go wrong with him. We also used the photo booth.



Mike and his daughter did an absolute amazing job with our photography and video. Mike did our engagement shoot as well as our pics for wedding and we couldn’t of been happier. Even though he lives all the way in Rochester and we live in Buffalo he drove out to meet with us. They were so accommodating with our locations and hectic big day and the pics came out beautiful. They had such a great attitude and reasonably priced. Would absolutely recommend

Mike and his team did an amazing job capturing our wedding. He met us at a park of our choosing for engagement photos. On our wedding day, him and Faye arrived incredibly early to capture all of the “getting ready” pictures. His knowledge of Rochester is top-notch, so he’ll have great recommendations and get you where you need to be for unique backdrops. Mike and Faye make a great team, and having both of them there meant double the pictures, double the perspectives, double the ideas. We took our pictures before the ceremony, and Mike kept the timing perfect. At the reception, the photo booth was a huge hit with guests. The photo book he makes afterwards is extremely high quality something we’ll treasure for years. You won’t find a better value than Mike and his team, highly recommended!

Mike and his team were very professional and did an amazing job at our wedding. We got our photos and video the week after our wedding. He took creative and beautiful photographs, he made sure to get great photos of our guests also. He was great to work with and we are very happy with the photographs. I highly recommend Mike!!

Would absolutely recommend Michael and his team for your photography needs. My daughter was married at Belhurst and from the time the ladies arrived until the last dance – they were professional, friendly and always taking photographs. His prices are some of the most reasonable in the area and we not only received hundreds of pictures, but wedding books, videos of the wedding, the introductions, first dance, cake cutting, and more. If you want very professional photos and videos – Michael is the photographer for you. We even received all photos and videos on thumb drives AND he did NOT keep the copyright so we can make and share all the photos we would like. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!



Mike Yare is amazing!!!! We booked him for our photography, videography, and photo booth for our wedding. We also had him do our engagement photos. He is truly a professional who has decades of his experience and his assistants are just as good. He is a wonderful person to work with and has a kind personality. Out of all of my vendors for our wedding, I was happy with him the most. I haven’t even seen our photos yet but I know they will be truly incredible. He has such interesting ideas for photos that you really don’t need to provide him with a shot list. He makes your wedding day fun and is flexible with your ideas. I am so happy we booked him for our wedding and I truly recommend him to anyone!



Mike was so wonderful throughout the entire process! His assistants were so wonderful the day of and kept things running smoothly and took the most amazing pictures! They were so much fun to work with and we are so glad we chose them! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!


Nikki R

His prices were great, he was very easy to contact, and good with videotaping while not being seen. On the day of the wedding he was so good at not being front and center with the camera that after the wedding my mom said “didn’t you guys hire a videographer?.” She hadn’t even noticed him although he was there for hours! Guests LOVED the photo booth as well, many many compliments on that one!


Autumn R

Mike is definitely worth every minute of the countless hours I spent researching multiple photographers! My husband & I are overwhelmed with great appreciate for the amazing work. Mike & Jamie provided us from day one until the last minutes of our reception!! We will forever be grateful!


Leslie C

Mike and his team did an excellent job in capturing our special day. His photos are great and I would love to work with him again.


Karin A

Michael Yare was an excellent photographer and so was his candid photographer and videographer. We were so pleased with all the photos he took – over 1,100 photos and 2.5 hours of video. Great pictures and so reasonable!


Jessi S

Mike was very enthusiastic and great to work with. He stayed with us all day, knew great locations for photos, and brought an assistant. Faye was great– her fun easy-going nature balanced out Mike’s down-to-business attitude. He got our photos to us within 3 weeks of our wedding, including a cd of pictures, and uncut video. He is one of the most affordable wedding photographers in the Rochester area– mostly because he includes services other photographers charge an arm and a leg for: all-day service, full rights to photos, and a second photographer. Why pay more?!


Devon W

Mike went above and beyond for our wedding! He knew the location of the wedding and where the pictures would come out the best. He was also very efficient when it came to getting our pictures developed. I had CD’s of all of my pictures ready for us before we came back from our honeymoon! I would highly recommend Mike for any wedding or special occasion.
