“It felt like my husband and I scoured through so many wedding photographers with the same poses, same images, same type of couples until we found Michael. Once we found him, we recognized that we had found an artist and wanted him to be there on our big day. He is extremely personable, kind, and knowledgeable. He was able to capture the moments that we never wanted to forget and made both of us feel very at ease the entire time we worked together. The images he took of us are unique and beautiful. We can not recommend Michael Schaffer highly enough. If you are looking for a calm, wonderful, and professional photographer, he is the one!”
“When we started out looking for a wedding photographer, we knew we wanted someone who shared our passion for the arts and showed good fundamentals. We wanted someone who was both technical and creative. And we needed someone to handle our lively bunch! Michael checked all of these boxes! He was laid back, kind, and courteous. He helped us make a plan for photography and was very professional in his communication and responsiveness. He rolled with the punches when we got behind schedule and gracefully adjusted his timeline. Michael did a fantastic job capturing photos of so many of our wedding guests. He perfectly captured the beauty and joy of our wedding day.”
“Michael has captured breath-taking photos that we cherish. He photographs gorgeous, natural expressions that display beautifully. I love the photographs from our wedding weekend. His use of the sunlight and the sunset are amazing! Michael understands that the environment around you also makes the moment and that’s very present in his photography. He captured the joy in our faces so wonderfully. He also did a great job with the flower girl who was quite energetic at the time. Michael is a very calm, easy going guy. I’ve been to weddings where the photographer overtakes the wedding because they are in your face constantly. Michael will capture all the moments you want, but in a quiet manner as not to disturb you and the guests. When you meet him, you’ll realize he is passionate about photography. He explained why he was positioning us certain ways during our portrait shoot and you can tell he knows his stuff by the prints we got! I highly recommend Michael to photograph your big day!”
“We hired Michael as our wedding photographer for next year. To get a feel for his style, we also hired him for an engagement session. We were a bit nervous as neither of us are eager to get in front of a camera. However, after the session, we can’t wait to work with him again on our wedding day! Mike put all of our nerves to rest and was really easy to work with. He was courteous, professional, engaged, responsive, and everything you could want in a photographer. Above all else, his pictures turned out great! We highly recommend Michael, and should we need a photographer for future events, he will be the first person we call.”
“Working with Michael is an absolute delight! He is professional, kind, and incredibly talented. Neither of us are “naturals” in front of the camera, but that didn’t matter during our photoshoot with Michael because he made us feel so comfortable. He has remarkable vision regarding scenery, poses, lighting, etc. We couldn’t be happier with both the experience and the end product! We’ll treasure these stunning photos forever. Thank you, Michael! Look forward to working with you again in the future.”
“Michael is an amazing photographer and his photos speak for themselves. We were fortunate enough to get him to capture our wedding weekend and I couldn’t be happier with the results. While the photos were phenomenal, what really impressed me about Michael was his personality. Weddings can be stressful events but Michael eliminated all the worry. He was so easy going with us while at the same time capturing some beautiful moments. It made us feel at ease having him as our photographer. I cannot recommend him enough.”
“We chose Michael to shoot our engagement photos last month. We were initially impressed with his professionalism, his demeanor, and his willingness to try new things and bend to our style and our needs. He’s great at directing without being pushy. He spent almost an entire day with us, even taking boudoir and breakfast shots in the early morning (something we were passionate about doing). He didn’t miss a step when we had suggestions and he certainly took our opinions and style into account while he was shooting. When we started seeing the first few photos a couple weeks later, we knew we had made the right choice. Everything looks great! We couldn’t ask for more. We have already booked him for our wedding too! Great guy, exceptional photographer, and someone you can trust with your forever memories.”
“Michael is an incredibly talented photographer and a delight to interact with. He helped create a beautiful experience for my husband and I – and now we have gorgeous pictures of the occasion that will last a lifetime. We felt very comfortable and he captured us in a truly artistic way, including our silly/playful moments. Highly recommend him!
