Best Photographer EVER! posted 11/27/2013 (modified 11/29/2013)

My husband and I could not be happier in our choice of photographer. Michael was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he asked questions to get to know us better as a couple, and now that we've gotten a chance to look through all of the photographs - it's clear why: he managed to capture photos of everything we wanted without us even having to tell him.

On the day of the wedding, he was my therapist, a skilled photographer, and just a fun person to be around all rolled into one. Michael turned out to be one of the few people that knew exactly what to say to calm me down and help us all refocus on the reason why were all there - my husband and I were getting married! He got the whole bridal party relaxed, smiling and laughing - and it shows in the photos. We all look naturally happy - who would have thought?! :)

After the wedding, Michael was a pleasure to deal with - always super responsive. Even though he was crazy busy with other weddings, he still managed to get us a few select photos right after the wedding for us to use for our thank you cards - a huge help in tackling those sooner rather than later! He's also made himself available to chat about albums and other printing options - as I am admittedly clueless!

Overall, we feel so blessed to have a vendor that was just absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process - from booking to album completion. I will without a doubt recommend Michael to everyone I know - they would be lucky to snag him!

Amazing is an understatement posted 9/15/2014 (modified 9/15/2014)

I honestly can not say enough good things about Michael Chadwick photography. After my engagement the most important thing to me was finding an amazing photographer so I did A LOT of research but when I came across Michael chadwick I knew he was the vendor I wanted to use. From day one he was extremely professional and invited us into his home to look at photos, talk about the wedding and get a feel for our personalities. I loved that he breaks the payments up so you don't have to pay all at once and the final payment is even two weeks after the wedding so you have time to relax and enjoy the honeymoon without worrying about it. He truly goes out of his way to make your wedding stress free in so many different aspects. Prior to the wedding he asks for a list of familiy members and names he should know as well as any photos you really wanted to capture. I was blown away on the wedding day at the fact that he really did learn people's names and know who to get pictures with- he was even joking around and calling people by our silly nicknames. Michael and his assistant Sheldon showed up early and I have to say they didn't feel like photographers they fit right in and felt like family. Sheldon even made it a point to go tell my then fiancé how beautiful my dress was and how great I looked which my husband said meant so much to him and made him that much more anxious to see me. Throughout the day they kept us laughing, kept reminding me to breath, captured every shot we wanted and every shot I didn't know I wanted but ended up loving, and made the night that much more memorable. I can not say enough about not only how professional they were but how personable they made the experience. Not to mention the photos are absolutely breath taking!!! From getting ready, to the ceremony, reception, dances, everything is stunning and I can not be more overjoyed with them!! For any bride choosing a photographer, there is a reason Michael chadwick has been top rated for so long- he is absolutely phenomanal at what he does and I feel lucky that he was available to capture my special day!

There are so many great things to say about Michael and his photography services! If you read this sentence and nothing else: book Michael for your wedding/event right. now.

Pre-wedding: Michael works hard to establish a relationship with his clients right away. Especially helpful was the pre-event questionnaire that he asks you to fill out. The questions asked range from topics like the tone of your wedding, the VIPs of the ceremony, and if there are any specific shots that you'd absolutely like to have.

Day-of: Michael has a wonderful way of making photography feel natural, which is an extra special quality for those of us who are first-timers in front of the camera. He also makes an extraordinary effort to blend in to the wedding like an old friend- several of our guests were delighted that he called them by name and remembered who was who. His friendliness and ability to make our friends and love ones laugh made for stunning 'true-to-life' photos. We preferred candid shots, but we did take a couple of more staged photos which Michael expertly framed and captured.

Post-wedding: Michael provides clients with both online and physical archival storage of photos, and a custom photo book (we honestly couldn't believe all that was included in the package!!!). We received our photos one month after our event and they are absolutely jaw-dropping. He uses photoshop sparingly, accentuating the life and colors of the photos while letting the subject matter speak for itself. Since our album was posted online about a week ago I have looked at our photos multiple times every day- they are that perfect!

My husband and I cannot recommend Michael Chadwick enough to others. He truly knows how to capture an event and becomes more of a friend than a vendor. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the photos of our special day!

Michael is Amazing! posted 10/15/2014

We met with Michael two years before our wedding and knew the minute we walked out of our meeting that he was the photographer for us. During our wedding planning, he responded to our questions quickly. Michael went above and beyond our expectations on our wedding day. He knew the whole wedding party (~19 of us) by name within the first hour. He showed up with an emergency pack full of bobby pins, medicine, band aids, etc. He made sure everyone was on time and kept all of the wedding day chaos in order. I truly believe he was more prepared than me! He was with us for 10 hours and attended hair appointments for the girls, flower pinning on the guys, church, in between photos and the reception. He captured the little details: centerpieces, rings, shoes, dresses, flowers and he didn't miss one sentimental moment. He was happy to capture every image on my long list of requests.

Michael has an amazing personality. By the end of the night we ended with an awesome photographer and gained a friend. He also worked well with our other vendors. The pictures he took were flawless and I had so many to look over. My husband and I enjoyed his company and were impressed with his skills. Michael is one of a kind and definitely the best photographer in south jersey.

Worth more than the price! posted 10/8/2014

I got married in August. Michael was a dream to work with. I had originally hired a "photographer" that was a newbie and super cheap. Well, I got what I paid for, nothing! I met with Michael and knew he would be the one to handle my pictures. He is funny, outgoing, and soothed my panic (this happened like 2 months before the wedding). He showed up on time the day of and made the entire bridal party at ease. I forgot that he was taking pictures! He was like a day of coordinator, he was so helpful. He also did things that I did not have to ask him to do like take pics of the dress and shoes before I put them on! The pictures were ready when he said that they would be. They are beautiful, and I cried when I looked at them! I am so happy that I found him! I made an account on here just to leave this review. You will not be disappointed!!!

We recently got married in August, and Michael Chadwick provided his talents for both our photography and videography. Among all the vendors we had to work with, along with our amazing venue, he was easily one of the best people to work with during all the planning. From the first meeting, it was clear that Michael had the talent and experience we were hoping for for our wedding. In addition, his kindness and willingness to make the extra effort was seen from planning our engagement session to enabling our wedding day to run so smoothly. He really listened to us, and was able to provide such amazing work that I could not have even imagined to be possible. Moreover, he was able to provide advice and work well with the other vendors so that we did not have to worry about much of anything on our actual day. He also went the extra step and helped us with figuring out how to work with last minute time constraints in order to enable the day to run smoothly. He was able to get the photographs with all of my family members in such an amazingly efficient manner along with the details of our wedding that we truly cherish. He as well as his colleagues Nick and Daniel got along with all of our family and friends, which means the world to us. His professionalism is apparent from the very beginning. He also was able to work very efficiently in getting the necessary photographs in such a way that it was enjoyable throughout the day with such a large group of people. In addition, we booked our photo booth with him. The packages he provides for the photo booth rental is quite extensive for an incredibly competitive price when compared to other rental companies. I have recommended his work to all of our friends and family with upcoming events, and recommend him to anyone seeking high quality work from a truly kind and talented individual.

Michael was totally awesome. We had planned all of our major vendors about a 11 months out from the Wedding date so we could have some time to relax and enjoy (and train for the boston marathon). Michael was the only vendor after we paid the deposit to send along and nice thank you and to keep in touch throughout the entire process. Another amazing personal touch was that he knew our bridal party and families by name, both making it more comfortable and easier for him to get everyone in order for pictures. I have been in A LOT of weddings and let me tell you that no photog ever knew my name! Michael gets back to you right away and is very helpful. Not to mention, the pics are great too! We are still waiting for a few but what I can tell from the preview is that he really captured the fun of the day! Call Michael Chadwick!

YES YES YES! posted 9/17/2014

Absolutely fabulous and fairly priced! I've only seen a couple of my pictures, but I am 100% sure I made the right choice! Michael is an absolute pleasure to work with, charming, extremely creative and very talented. so many of my guests came up to me during my wedding just to tell me how wonderful the photographers were. In my opinion, Go with Chadwick Creative Arts, you won't be sorry!

Michael Chadwick, and our second photographer Sheldon, were an amazing team on the day of our wedding, and were extremely pleasant to work with. Michael is very attentive to the needs of his clients, and you can easily see that. He is enthusiastic about what he does and shows that he enjoys capturing and creating images that fit each couple's personal style, rather than just taking generic, boring photos. I wanted natural photos that also weren't an exact replica of other couple's wedding photos, and he did a fantastic job providing me with photos I really love. The best part about my wedding was the reception and Michael captured all of the fun and funny moments that really showed that everyone had a great time at my wedding. He blended in really well with the crowd, despite his tall stature! He helped keep me calm and relaxed and made everyone feel comfortable, which made the photo shoots a breeze. The candid shots were the best and I can't get enough of them! I think it's extremely important to hire a photographer with plenty of experience because your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and you need to someone who knows exactly how to satisfy the bride and groom's wishes, and create photos that fit their own unique style. That is something Michael Chadwick knows how to do well. We got everything we wanted in our package, and more, and we are so happy to have had them at our wedding!

Couldn't be happier posted 8/17/2014

My husband and I are beyond happy with Michael Chadwick. He captured every moment of our wedding day and we will forever be able to look back at the amazing photographers he took. Not only is he an unbelievable photographer, he is also is a great person. Every bride is nervous on their wedding day and he did an awesome job at helping me relax and had so much fun with our wedding party. I can not thank Michael enough for all that he did for us on our wedding day and truly making it a memorable and stress free day.

Amazing! posted 4/21/2014 (modified 4/22/2014)

Michael is the most amazing photographer! From the first day you meet Michael you understand how much photography is a passion and art to him. He shows that through his work. He captures the true essence of the day without your knowledge. Once the wedding was over and we got back from our honeymoon he was already starting to post pictures. Within a few weeks the online photo gallery was complete! The day of the wedding is such a whirlwind you barely remember any details, but Michael captures it all!! I am highly recommending Michael to all my friends and family for upcoming wedding and events! You will not be disappointed!!

Wonderful experience! posted 3/8/2014 (modified 3/9/2014)


Michael was great from the first time I contacted him on the phone to the last step of the process. Before we met with him we had talked to two different photographers that had not convinced us and Michel made is so easy for us to make a decision. He knew exactly what to do, so easy to talk to and very fun to be around. He has a great personality our family and friends loved him and had nothing but great things to say about him. He took wonderful pictures and put together a perfect highlight video of our wedding. We couldn't be happier. Michael and his videographer Sheldon were a pleasure to work with and are very highly recommended.

We used to Michael Chadwick for our wedding photography in September 2013 Michael Chadwick and his associate Sheldon were excellent and produced high-quality wedding photos that we will have forever.
We fell in love with his unique style and technique with the ability to capture all the fine details of our beautiful wedding.
Since we had an Indian wedding there were many colors and details that Michael and his associate were able to to capture perfectly without missing a beat.
Michael has a lovely personality making it very easy to plan your wedding from beginning to end. He is fun and easy-going and willing to work with you to have all of your wedding dreams come true. His tall stature and affability make him a readily available to capture every moment of the wedding festivities. He also communicates well is always available and delivers photographs in a timely manner.

Best of all, when our wedding went over time, Michael and Sheldon stayed two extra hours free of charge and continue to capture the beautiful moments of our wedding reception. This is absolutely amazing and the fact that he did that demonstrates that he is a wonderful wedding photographer with the goal of making your wedding the most special day possible.

Oh and I should mention that he has very reasonable prices for the excellent packages that he offers.

Thanks Michael and Sheldon!!

You can relax with Michael as your guy! posted 12/27/2013 (modified 12/28/2013)

When starting to plan my wedding, there were some things I knew with little or no effort and some things that were completely overwhelming. Finding a photographer was one of those tasks that I had no idea where to begin. Being the referral kind of person I am, I asked a co-worker who is also engaged if she had found a photographer yet. She referred Michael.

I'm a referral person. If someone suggests a place to go or person to contact, I'm there. So I contacted Michael and from that moment I was confident I had the right guy. He responded to my request immediately and we set up a meeting. When my now hubby and I met him he left us speechless. He was so reasonable and had such a great personality, we knew we couldn't go wrong choosing him.

Michael is such a personable guy and really knows the ins and outs of what he's doing in preparing for the big day and the actual day. He was always accessible when I had questions and did a fabulous job of working with our crazy families. He made sure he captured all the moments I wanted and more. He also made a special effort to know all the "key players" names and relationship.

Now that I have my pictures, I'm in complete awe. I've looked at them over and over again and can't believe how he captured the best moments of my day. I'm so glad Michael was there for my day!

My only regret- I did not have engagement pictures taken. I strongly recommend having Michael take engagement pictures- they're great pictures to have without the formal attire of the wedding day and it gives you an opportunity to get to know Michael.and for him to know you.

Michael was wonderful. Of all the vendors we hired for the wedding, he was by far and away the most prompt and clear when communicating to us. He was great about talking to us about our expectations for the pictures, and what pictures we wanted. Plus the photos looked great, and we could see them online in under a month. I'd recommend him to any of my friends and family who need a wedding photographer.

When we met Michael prior to the wedding he was very professional and easy going. Having Michael as our photographer completed our wedding day. During the ceremony and photo period we hade fun while taking pictures at multiple locations. Michael was very knowledgeable about great locations and little hidden secrets that make the end results amazing. People often ask about our photographer and our beautiful pictures.
