"F" RATINGReviewed on 10/24/2014 Kelly H
I wish I didn't even have to give 1 star. I would without question give Issa Michel a 0 rating since it is 2 years after my wedding and my blood still boils over his horrendous service. Please check the Better Business Bureau before even considering booking Issa Michel. He has a F Rating...and now he's attempting to cover up bad reviews by requesting them to be reviewed by wedding wire - which means they're taken down until or unless someone provides proof of contract and payment. 1. He has 13 open complaints that he didn't even take the time to provide a response to - one of which is mine. 2. I have been married now for 2 years and never received an online photo gallery, edited pictures, or a photo book 3. I had to constantly call, email, text, and argue my way to get in touch with Issa since he was avoiding all contact after the wedding - of course after the full payment was provided. This entire process was a nightmare...of course he came up with a million excuses and based on other reviewers - this is without question his MO. Overall, my experience with Issa Michel photography was horrendous. I am glad that I got a copy of our pictures so that I could take the time to put together my own photo book - just too bad I had to pay out of pocket to do so. DO NOT BOOK.
Forever greatful to Issa MichelReviewed on 11/30/2011 Emma A
I met Issa Michel at a bridal showcase and was instantly drawn to his personality,energy and obvious passion for photography. After my now husband, met Issa we knew he was the photographer for us!! Our engagement pics where outstanding. Issa helped us feel comfortable, and my husband who was a little camara shy felt so at ease, thanks to Issa. Today my husband and I received our published photos from our Big day and had so much fun reliving that day thanks to Issa. Our wedding guest list was over 220 and Issa captured the day better than we could imagine. We have had so many compliments on Issa Michel and his professionalism, fun loving personality and energy. Our wedding pictures where amazing and creative, thanks to Issa Michel. I will and have recommended him to everyone. Chose Issa Michel for your event!!!! You will not regret it, Issa is amazing and his final product reflects it. Again, Issa thank you so much. Love Emma and Daniel
THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER!!!Reviewed on 10/21/2011 Laura R
Issa is a wonderful photographer and such a joy to work with from meeting him at an expo center to the engagement photoshoot, to our wedding day! He is extremely talented, fun, respectful, and dependable. I can only think of positive things to say about him. The pictures from our wedding turned out to be even more special to my husband and I than we originally thought. We unfortuantely picked the wrong vendor for videography and we do not have the wedding video that we hoped for. Luckily, we picked Issa as our wedding photographer and he captured every moment perfectly! The beautiful finished album truly tells the story of our wedding from getting ready and the ceremony, to the reception and last dance. We are blessed! My husband and I loved Issa's work so much that we strongly suggested him to a friend of our's who was planning her wedding. She took a lot at the album, loved the pictures and decided to take our advice. She was not disappointed and found the same amazing qualities in him that we found! He will meet with you and discuss every detail of how you would like your pictures and album to be. He is someone who truly loves what he does and this shows in his commitment and passion towards capturing the biggest day of your life. Basically, he makes sure at the end of the "big day", you are 100% happy. What more can you ask for?
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!Reviewed on 10/20/2011 Nicole L
Issa was our photographer for our wedding and while his photos were AMAZING, he was so much more to us on our special day. He was part of our family; he fit in with our guests and made everyone feel special and beautiful. He was so kind, professional, flexible and fun. The joy we felt on our wedding day is brought right to the surface again when we look at our photos. The photos are amazingly beautiful and so creative. Being the bride and groom many times we were so busy celebrating we did not fully get to enjoy our food, flowers and we didn’t focus on our guests during our ceremony since we had eyes for only each other. However, when looking at our photos we get to visit our wedding anytime we want. There was not one detail too small to be captured and not one request we had ignored. Issa is amazing and I would suggest calling him ASAP to book your date. You will not have to worry on bit on your wedding day he will take care of everything! Don’t wait call Issa TODAY!
Issa Michel PhotographyReviewed on 10/20/2011 Brandy S
When I first met Issa, I had a photographer I was already talking to but Issas personality and passion for what he does was so amazing that I knew that he was the one to work with. Our engagement and wedding photos were amazing! He worked super hard the whole day of our wedding capturing all the moment that's I'll want remember and faces of those who shared the day with us! He made sure he got all the details big and small, nothing escaped his eye! Issa is the total package, he does amazing work, is the friendliest person ever and so passionate about what he does. When I look at his photos I don't just see a picture, I see a beautiful moment caught in time forever. If you are looking for someone who understands how important and special this moment is and someone who has a great personality and knows how to make everyone comfortable in front of the camera, Issa Michel is the man!
