While searching for a wedding photographer, we came across Michael O’Day Photography, looked through his portfolio on his website and decided that we liked his style already. We loved his his composition, sophistication, clarity and freshness of the images. As we sat down with... Read More Michael, we found out he was incredibly friendly and down to earth, which made us feel very comfortable. We hired Michael after only meeting him once and I immediately thought he was great. He work with us in building a suitable package. He worked with my husband and I so well. During our engagement shoot, he was professional and fun to work with which made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. We are speechless over our wedding album. It’s the most beautiful thing we have ever seen from the images, to the binding to the cover and all of the pages! When we met him on the wedding day, which is the fifth time, we felt like old friends. Our wedding photos came out so spectacular. He captured both the general mood and the intimate small details of our wedding beginning with the late morning building up right through the final ending when we left the reception and they walked us to our car to capture their last photo. They were spectacular and I would recommend them to everyone! Pick Michael O’Day Photography

Thanks to Michael and his team for providing on our wedding day a first class service. The images are just simply amazing, not only did they capture the essence of our day, Michael’s passion comes across in the photos. He is able to blend so well that our guest didn’t realize... Read More they were being photographed. It’s not the formal photos that remind us how great our day was, but the natural fun and excitement of the special day that is so important to be documented. Michael has the ability to paint a story so vivid and emotional that we were actually brought to tears seeing what they created for us. Our wedding day was like a blink of the eye, to know that we have all these beautiful images as memories, means more to us than words can express.

At our first meeting with Michael, we knew we wanted him to be our wedding photographer. When we first met him, he made us feel at ease.

Read More and his team’s professionalism and always there for support on answers other than photos and was like part of our family. His pictures truly captured the mood, atmosphere and emotions of the day and everything else that we missed. Our family and friends were so excited and please with all the photos that Michael and his team took. Lots of positive comments from our guest wishing they had documentary photographed their wedding instead of having set poses. Michael has such an amazing talent for capturing “moments” which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding day.

I've never written a review before but I wanted to write this one because I know how hard it is to choose a wedding photographer. I didn't know anything about photography and had no idea what to look for or what questions to ask a photographer. Michael and Julie made everything... Read More so easy... as they will tell you... meeting them for coffee is well worth the time even if you don't hire them... I fact they insisted we talk to at least 2 more photographer after meeting with them. They politely explained all the options, what to look for, what to ask and the why behind it all. I cannot thank them enough! The day of our wedding they helped out in so many ways... I did not worry about anything; I knew my wedding was in good hands. The pictures they captured are so beautiful. I still light up when I look at them. They documented so many wonderful moments from everywhere. Wonderful meaningful events that we would have never seen without their help and keen eye. I can't thank them enough... I love you guys.

When you seek a photographer, you will first look at the photo samples, and then you will look at the price. I know this firsthand because I recently got married. I met with three separate photographers. All their work was beautiful. All three were great to talk with. All three... Read More charged similar rates (a max difference of $600). So, why did we choose Michael and Julie? They have the X factor: professionalism. If you have yet to be married, then you do not understand the stress and nerves that will overtake you, a usually calm person, on your wedding day. You need someone who can be unobtrusive as well as present to talk you off the ledge. You need someone who has his team on headsets so when the bride realizes, as the flower girl is sprinkling petals, that she does not have her bouquet, he can send a runner to sprint that bouquet to the bride! And Michael was there to tell me, in the calmest voice, that I am the bride and they will wait for me. So breathe. I've had the opportunity to watch wedding video, and I watched Michael, Julie, and Mickey as they worked. I am beyond impressed. What I saw were 3 people with eagle eyes, constantly scanning the action and snapping real guest reactions. I remember Michael and Julie telling me that my husband and I will miss big chunks of our wedding because we will be busy and overwhelmed. It is their jobs to photograph what we miss, so that we can really experience our own wedding. Michael and Julie set the bar for all photographers. I won't get my photos for 4 more weeks. I am not concerned at all. I know the shots will be fantastic because I witnessed first hand their organization, teamwork, and keen eyes. There is no substitute for experience, and all I can say is that you will not be sorry. These people take their jobs very seriously. They will listen to you and be respectful when you need space. Before we left our initial interview with Michael and Julie, Michael offered a piece of advice: no matter whom you choose, make sure you choose someone you'd enjoy having a second cup of coffee with; you will be spending a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day! We would love to have a second cup of coffee with Michael and Julie. In fact, I was sad to see them go. They became a source of sublime comfort to me during a whirlwind of emotion.

You couldn't ask for better photographers! They captured so many moments that my husband and I didn't get a chance to see and most importantly, they captured who we are as a couple. They spent lots of time with us before and during the wedding, but you never felt like you had... Read More a camera shoved in your face. I think something I most appreciated was their communication with each other.

Michael and his staff were amazing. My husband and I could not be happier... even our families loved them. They arrived early and helped out in so many ways. They helped us with things that were not their "job". No one knew how to pin a boutonniere and they did all of them, they... Read More even assisted in the lacing of my dress. They were phenomenal and very professional. They had secret service type radios that helped us communicate... they coordinated our movements leading up to the ceremony so we didn’t see each other until the altar. Without them we wouldn’t know where everyone was at or if the flowers arrived. I felt so much more relaxed with them there. I am so ecstatic. They made the entire wedding day run more smoothly. And pictures we received... took our breath away. Everything was capture so beautifully. And I mean everything... They where everywhere, taking picture of the entire wedding. My family was amazed by their friendliness and how they always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. They even have some essential oils to help calm my mom down when she got so stressed with the flower people.   I can't say enough great things about Michael, Julie and Mikki... I highly recommend Michael O’Day Photography from the bottom of my heart!
