Being a friend of Michael since highschool, I had seen his landscape photography popping up on social media for some time. He would include technical notes on how he had captured and produced the images. His knowledged demonstrated he was not just a guy with a fancy camera.In honor of his daughter graduating from high school, Michael raffled off a photoshoot and I ended up winning one for myself and my family.From the beginning, despite it being free, Michael was inquisitivea professional. We talked about my family and our interests and our favorite places in Erie county and picked Pleasant Ridge park as the location for our shoot. Michael picked the time of the shoot to coincide with sunset that day.With my daughter, son, Michael, his assistant and a bunch of fancy gear we hiked a mile into Pleasant Ridge park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Although we hadn't seen each other in years, Michael and I hit it off well, he engaged with kids and answered their 1,001 questions. We spent the evening finding sunlight in the woods and the fields, taking pictures and laughing about parenting.All in all, Michael is painterly in his photography. Uncanny, bright, crisp images. Interactive and informative as a person. The kids, myself and everyone I've sent the photos to has been impressed.Aug 7, 2020Review from GoogleEriePics by Michael Nesgoda's reply

We hired Mike on short notice to photograph our wedding. I am completely impressed and satisfied with Mike. Ive been showing the wedding pictures he took to my family, friends, and colleagues at work. Everyone is thoroughly impressed with the level of sophistication of the photography. I think Mike captured exactly what we wanted. He was more than accommodating with our schedule and the requests for the photos that we requested. The images were provided to us promptly and we were able to choose from a large variety of photos with very interesting and unique angles and textures. Mike exceeded our expectations in capturing the feeling and memories of such an important event.Oct 27, 2020Review from Google

Michael Nesgoda is one of the best photographers in Erie, Pennsylvania. His unmatched quality and dedication to get the job done is worth his price tag. He is official and progressing, considering he has only brought his photography abilities into the light over the past few months. All the pictures from my shoots turned out better than I imagined and couldve asked for. The photo quality, the editing capability, and the scenery selection provided was all superb to say the least. Hes a natural and I will be going back to him for more photo shoots!Sep 23, 2020Review from GoogleEriePics by Michael Nesgoda's reply

Michael was outstanding to work with. Tom and I just celebrated our 30th anniversary and in all those years we have never had a photographer session! We were nervous and shy and had no idea what to expect. Michael, from the get go was so easy to talk to. He was very interested in US and what our story was all about. He is a true professional and artist. We started at our home for our first location. Michael made us feel right at ease and so natural. We were so busy laughing that we had no idea when he was taking pictures which in turn made these photos more real. We werent posed or told to smile. This was a true artistic adventure for us and we loved every moment. Our second location was at a local wooded area. Michael told us to just go ahead and start walking. Tom and I held hands, walking slowly into the woods. It felt as if we were all alone and enjoying the moment. We never knew if Michael was taking photos or not as we walked. Once we reached our perfect spot, Michael and his assistant Amanda were right there with camera lighting equipment to capture our special moments. He talked to us and made us so comfortable. This experience will be something Tom and I will never forget and we will most certainly not wait another 30 years to capture our love. Michael will be our go to photographer and we will not stop telling people how special he made us feel.Aug 17, 2020Review from GoogleEriePics by Michael Nesgoda's reply

Michael is an exceptional photographer with top notch customer service. He is extremely responsive, and worked very diligently to deliver what we were looking for in a family photo shoot. I appreciated that he was so thorough in making sure he understood us, as a family, and how he incorporated those nuances into both the locations and the photographs themselves. He managed to capture the personalities of both of my teenagers perfectly! I was impressed with how prepared he was the day of the shoot, and how flexible he remained with us. He was super friendly and made everyone feel comfortable. At the end of the day, he went over and above our expectations. Our entire experience was a positive one and I would highly recommend. The results are wall worthy portraits, and I would encourage anyone looking for a photographer to give him a call. You won't regret it!Jul 30, 2020Review from GoogleEriePics by Michael Nesgoda's reply
