Mike is literally the man! From the moment we booked with him, we knew he was right for us. He is very excited about what he does and his portfolios were amazing. For our engagement shoot I forgot to mention that we wanted our dogs in a few shots and he jumped right in, gave the... Read More babies lots of love and even got them to pose with made for some great "family" pictures! He effortlessly walked through multiple poses/ locations at the beach we were at and made it so much fun! The day of the wedding Mike was joined by Garret who spent most of his time with the boys while Mike was with me. My husband said that Garret fit right in when everyone was getting ready, even helped fix some ties and pocket squares while snapping photos! Mike was unfortunatlying stuck with all us girls the day of but appeared to love every second. He was posing people/ items throughout the morning but was still pretty on top of me and what I was doing. At one point he even saw that I was getting a little anxious with all the people around and asked if I needed to go in another room for a few minutes. Bridal party and family photos went smoothly- having 2 divorced families we thought this would be a problem, not at all! We ran down the list of pictures that we wanted taken and Mike/ Garret called out names and got through them quickly as we were on a time crunch. Mike is not scared to get on the ground or stand on something to get the perfect shot! Throughout the evening he showed us some of the pictures he took on his camera and they were amazing! I CANNOT wait to see his finish products and our album <3 cannot thank CT Photo group enough!

We are SO GLAD we decided to go with CT Photo Group for our special day. Our photographer, Garrett, went above and beyond to get the shots we asked for. Our wedding day was very HOT and we heard no complaints from him. He carried on and did all the wonderful photos we were... Read More hoping for. He was so mindful of my dress and our well-being. We felt like Garrett was our long-time friend rather than just a vendor we hired for our wedding. Not only was he Professional but he was fun, patient and completely understanding. We are so excited to see our photos and we want to thank both Garrett and Mike for everything they've done for us.

With 3 weeks to plan our wedding and unfortunate circumstances, Mike and his team made our special day more amazing than we could have ever dreamed. The minute he heard our story, he moved things around to be able to shoot our special day. 2 weeks ago he took the most beautiful... Read More wedding photos for us in a snow storm, then he made our wedding day perfect. From his attention to detail, to being everywhere at every moment and to capturing every special minute, Mike is now considered family to us. As our wedding passed by, too quickly, because it really does! We felt assured that days, weeks, months and years following we could look back at our pictures and they would bring us right back into the moment they were taken. It is with no hesitation that I would highly recommend Mike and his team. Not just because of the quality of his work, but because of the way he connects with his clients. We are so lucky and honored to have had Mike and his team a part of our special day. We cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for us and for giving us the pictures to remember these memories.

Mike Evans of CT Photo Group was everything I hoped to find in a photographer. Let me preface by telling you honestly that I hate having my photo taken - I'm in the camp that believes it takes away from your experience, is a time suck, and I also am... Read More whatever-the-opposite-of-photogenic-is. But with my family, there was no getting out of having a professional photographer. So I shopped around for months, met with many photographers, and couldn't quite find what I was looking for. Then I met Mike, and all of my anxiety was laid to rest. Mike is extremely professional, confident, and experienced. There was no doubt he'd produce beautiful photos and do a great job, but so will many of the photographers out there. What makes Mike special is his compassion, creativity and sensitivity. He did an amazing job of both staying out of the way on the wedding day, and making me feel comfortable and like he was there just to cater to me. He was able to direct me (I'm stubborn) in a gentle way, and even make it fun. The true testament was that he brought us out around 8:30pm in the middle of the reception for a brief night shoot, and neither my (now) husband nor I even hesitated to leave the best party of our lives to go with him. He really tapped into our quirks and nerdiness, and spent some extra time playing into our dramatics and theatricality - he even seemed to have fun with it! We asked him to move his hours so that he could stay for a bit of the after party, and he was a total hit there, too. By the end of the day, I wanted to invite him to stay for the after party, if he weren't such a professional guy - THAT's how much fun he was to work with. His assistant for the day, Matt, was also a ton of fun. He was jumping around, getting into all sorts of weird positions to get creative shots, and I really appreciated his willingness to jump right into things. Both Matt and Mike are great examples of very organized professionals who have maintained their creativity despite the mammoth wedding machine. They're really fun, nice guys, and they are experienced and obviously know exactly what they're doing. CT Photo Group is the first vendor I would recommend to any local bride starting at the beginning.

Mike and his team truly made our special day. Beyond being incredibly responsive and organized, Mike was able to capture every moment perfectly.

In choosing all of my wedding vendors, I was most nervous about choosing the right photographer. When we met with Mike Evans of CT Photo Group, we knew we had the right one. He is so calm and easy to work with. He made our day go so smoothly despite the hundreds of pictures... Read More we probably took! We didn't feel overwhelmed by him, or like he was constantly in our faces, he just casually did his thing and captured all the moments we had spoke about. We had a lot of family pictures to be taken after the ceremony, and Mike just kept it moving along so nicely. Made it much easier to get through! :) Matt was our second shooter, and he was also great! He got shots of the guys getting ready and then different view points throughout the day alongside Mike. They worked really well together and really made us feel comfortable. We also booked video through them (digital video productions), and Dave was our video guy, he was also great! Not invasive, but there capturing all the moments! Dave was really chill and friendly the entire day! Video was one of the things we didn't think we needed, but now are so happy we did it! We cant wait to actually see our wedding!! Thanks again to all at CT Photo Group for making the day go so smoothly!

Mike and Gustavo from CT Photo Group create truly phenomenal photography and were incredibly organized on our wedding day. We cannot say enough about their incredible work and wish we could give them more than 5 stars. In particular, Mike was responsive to all calls and emails... Read More and ensured that all the details were set for our big day. Mike took the time to capture more than the ceremony itself, but also the other little things that made our wedding unique including decorations at home while getting ready, the cocktail hour and the cake. Mike took a variety of shots, including day and night pictures, working with the lighting to capture beautiful moments. Mike was amazing to work with from the start, always mindful of wedding day details (careful to ensure the wedding gown stayed dry during those beach pictures!) and with an obvious wealth of experience. We were fortunate to meet him while he worked with a few family members and knew immediately we wanted him to capture our wedding. He took the time to know the names of every person in our wedding party and our immediate family. Mike even checked the weather everyday for a week leading up to the ceremony so he could be prepared for anything (luckily the rain stayed away!) He captured every photo we requested and so many more, helping the day flow smoothly and without worry. We would recommend Mike, Gustavo and CT Photo Group without hesitation and cannot recommend them highly enough for upcoming weddings and events! Thank you both for making our day so perfect!

From the beginning, we could tell Mike and all of CT Photo Group were a great choice. They were extremely responsive and helpful in our initial emails and phone calls. Our engagement session was a blast. Mike quickly picked up on our quirks and made our session extremely... Read More fun and enjoyable. We received the pictures the very next day and couldn’t have been happier with them. We still receive compliments on them. Mike arrived to the bride’s house on time, quickly picked up on everyone’s names and just fit in with all of the craziness that was going on. He would pick up on opportune moments to get great photos, and other times would just sit back and capture beautiful candid shots. The same can be said for Matt, who did just the same for the groom. At the wedding, Mike, Matt & Garrett all were amazing with our family. They were prepared with all of the shots we wanted, and captured them and tons more. We cannot thank Mike and the rest of CT Photo Group enough for their amazing work capturing memories on the greatest day of our life. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
