Prom or formal,
Michael was our wedding photographer and did an INCREDIBLE job. We loved his natural and candid style. He came prepared for the big day and was great at communicating beforehand. He has such a genuine and down-to-earth personality, which always put us at ease and impressed our family and friends. He also made an itinerary and visited our venue on his own time before the event. One of our favorite things is that he posts ~10 preview shots within 24 hours of your wedding. We loved sharing them with our family the next day! Not only that, but he has different packages to fit your needs, which all include the rights to your photos as well as an online gallery. Overall, he loves his craft and we were so glad to have him with us on our special day! We will recommend him again and again.Jul 21, 2016Verified

He is an awesome Photographer, so nice and worked well with everyone! He has a sneak peek for us the night after and I loved our photos so much! I definitely recommend him for anyone looking!Sep 27, 2016Verified
Michael was wonderful to work with, he was exceptionally organized and detailed during the planning process and was so fun to work with on our wedding day!! Michael even kept an eye out on the weather for us the day of - he saved us the stress we weren't anticipating (we had a last minute weather change, our day went from a clear and beautiful day to evening storms). Overall, Michael was very patient, pleasant, and fun to work with. His photography (sneak peak) is excellent and very professional! We are very excited to see the rest of his work!!Oct 3, 2016VerifiedMichael Hamerlind Photography, LLC's reply
Thanks so much for the kind words! It was such a great day working with you both and your family & friends. Can't wait to complete your photo set in the coming month or so!
We couldn't have chosen a better photographer. I have no complaints about the experience with Michael at all. He is professional, talented, and efficient. There have been so many breathtaking pictures taken that have brought me to the brink of tears. We would highly recommend his services!Mar 20, 2017VerifiedMichael Hamerlind Photography, LLC's reply
I so appreciate your positive feedback on my work! Yesterday was a great celebration and I was honored to have been selected to be a part of it all. I look forward to working through the complete set of photos and get them to you in the coming weeks!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Each year, I partake in 2-3 professional development opportunities to learn about the newest trends in professional photography, refine my style and craft, and look for new ways to capture images that other photographers simply aren't doing. As a photographer, our artistry is always evolving and there is always room for learning new things!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Meet with your prospective wedding photographer. Enjoy a casual, no pressure visit over coffee and share your vision for you wedding day with them. On your wedding day, you will spend more time with your photographer than any other person, so you want to be sure there's a connection and a comfort level there that will translate into capture your story.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?The time spent behind the camera (wedding, family session, senior picture session) represents about 20% of the total time required to deliver my clients their fully processed set of images. A lot of detail and post production work (aka - edits) goes into making sure each and every image is the best it can be!
