Photo studio shoots,
Mike did a great job capturing my proposal to my girlfriend. I wanted to propose during sunset in Carmel somewhere with view of the ocean, but wasn't too familiar with the area. Mike offered to scope out a couple spots and we decided on a very private area with a spectacular view. He was very easy to work with and extremely quick to respond to my emails. Since it was a surprise, Mike and his wife arrived early to stake out the spot and looked like any other couple at the beach taking photos. They captured every moment of my proposal and took a few shots afterwards (she said yes!). I got the pictures the next day and they turned out great! So happy with the experience, and would highly recommend Mike.Apr 15, 2018Verified
Great photos, great service!Jun 30, 2017
I haven’t seen my photos yet but I already know that they will be incredible just from the preview. Probably my favorite vendor I used. He was in time and extremely friendly. My friends and family loved him! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer on my special day! I would recommend him a million times!! I changed my mind a million times on where to go and what pictures to take and he never questioned it once.Feb 28, 2018Verified
We had a great experience with Michael! He was prompt, professional, and really helped our company out. Thanks again!Oct 27, 2017Verified
Mike and his wife were great! I had a small destination wedding and I was planning a wedding while on deployment. I booked him 3 weeks prior to my wedding for dress portraits and everything went smoothly. He responded VERY fast to any request or question. He was very fun to work with since I'm not naturally photogenic and made me feel great prior to the ceremony. I wish I had booked him for my actual wedding reception!Oct 18, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Cost varies per project. I can take payment in person or online.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Large events or long projects would require a contract, but for most jobs, a phone call is all I need. After I take your photos, I retouch and resize them, and e-mail them to you, usually within just a couple of days.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I’ve worked as a photographer and graphic designer in advertising and publishing since 1984, and with Adobe Photoshop since 1992. Besides the retirement of film, not much else has changed technically. Lenses and light behave the same way they always have.
