Michael was fantastic throughout the entire process including hiring, working out details, accommodating changes in schedule, the actual photography itself, and getting us preview photos within 24 hours and our entire web album within a week. He photographed a surprise engagement cruise I planned in Portland, Me.
The first thing I have to mention is his drive and determination to make our agreement work. Initially, we had agreed on a date for the engagement cruise which we later realized wasn't going to work due to weather. We realized this about a week before the date I had originally scheduled. As you can imagine this created a stressful situation and there was a lot of last minute scrambling. Unfortunately, Michael was already booked for the new date I had worked out with the charter company. I thought I was just going to have to go ahead with the engagement cruise without a photographer. Amazingly, Michael was able to push his morning booking up 2 hours early and was able to make it for the engagement cruise. He rearranged his entire schedule even though his booking for that morning was a 2 hour drive one way. I think I have made my point.
As you can imagine, I was pretty nervous prior to the engagement. I had 30 of our friends on board and her family. Michael was great at talking me through the process and letting me know what shots he wanted to get. He captured some amazing photos. He also has a great personality and fit right in with the party. He was more than happy to take pictures of all of our friends as well and I really could not have asked for a better overall experience. Like I said, he got us some proofs within 48 hours and our web album within a week or so. His rate was unbeatable as well.
Michael is passionate about what he does and is a true professional. If you want to capture some special moments for a special occasion, go with Michael and you will not be disappointed. You will be in great hands.
