Michelle is simply the best and you are in the best hands with her and Mark. I can't recommend her enough!

enuine smile on their faces the whole day and evening. Michelle and her husband truly enjoy what they do, and it was evident in how much fun they seemed to have while photographing our wedding day. They are both professional and genuinely good people. They made sure to capture all the photos that we wanted, and helped us to create photos that we didn't even know we needed! Neither my husband or I are used to being photographed often, but thankfully Michelle helped us to create some truly beautiful poses/photographs. It is a big task to capture such an important snap shot in a person's life, but Michelle and her husband seemed to do it without issue or reservation. I am looking forward to a time when we can utilize their services again!

When I was planning my wedding at strawberry farms I saw Michelle's website and knew she was a very talented photographer with visions beyond imagination. When I met her and her husband Mark in person we instantly clicked and I loved her sweet ...
and cheerful personality. We honestly didn't discuss much about the wedding when we first met. We learned a lot about each other and shared fun stories. It never bothered me that we didn't get into too much details about the wedding because I knew I could trust her to do what she does best, and that's capture our special day. The day of the wedding Michelle was truly excited for us and helped ease my wedding day jitters. She was so patient with the whole wedding party (we all know that can be stressful) and she was able to get our family photos done quickly so our families could enjoy the reception. During our romantic photos our golf cart died and what does Michelle do, she tells us to hop out of the cart and finds this amazing area to take photos! During the reception her and our 2nd photographer made sure to take so many fun and creative photos. I don't think one guest was left out of any of the photos. When the wedding was over Michelle gave me the most special little gift. During the wedding she took several Polaroid photos. At the end of the night she gave them to me wrapped in twine with a flower. She said she knows her work takes some time to see so she wanted me to have something right away. This literally brought tears to my eyes because it was very thoughtful. When I got the photos after the wedding I couldn't wait to see Michelle's work. The photos turned out beautiful and I can't wait to display them in my home and give them to family. I still consider Michelle a friend and hope to work with her again someday either for a friends wedding, maternity photos or whatever else comes my way. Thank you Michelle. I am beyond pleased and blessed to have you capture my perfect day!

hard-working and caring professional. As soon as we looked at her work on her website, we knew she was our first choice. She showed her level of dedication and care for her job, and the couples she works with, right away. We all got along so well and my husband and I knew we wanted her to be our photographer. Michelle shows a care for her couples that goes beyond business - she truly wants them to be happy and have their happily ever after start off in a perfect way. As the wedding day came closer, Michelle was integral in helping us plan the timeline of the day. As my husband and I had never done this before, we had no idea where to start with a timeline. On the day of our wedding, Michelle was an absolute professional. She worked so well with her team and the videographer to ensure we stayed on time without sacrificing any shots. She kept us on schedule and directed us and the wedding party so perfectly. We got the full 1800 (yes, 1800) photos from the wedding day and we were just so ecstatic! My husband and I were so amazed by the quality of the photos, we couldn't believe they were actually ours as they look like something from a magazine! Her work is incredible! Not only did we have so many photos to relive that day and treasure always, but the photos were just so beautiful and her eye is just phenomenal. My husband and I said to ourselves, "That's why we hired her!" We chose her in the beginning because her work was just so beautiful and exactly what we envisioned for our wedding photos. And she absolutely, 100% (and then some) delivered! We were so happy with our photos, we could not have been more thankful to her! She gave us our dream photos, and thus the best memories ever of a magical day that goes all too fast.
Michelle was more than our photographer. She was our guidance, our therapist, our planner, our friend. I have so much love for this woman and infinite gratitude for her hard work, generosity, and kindness. I would recommend Michelle Johnson Photography to anyone and everyone! If you couldn't already tell from this review - you will NOT be disappointed! I would give Michelle Johnson Photography 10 stars if I could!

ics, and she hadn't done something like that before and just ROCKED it!! She took pictures of my fiancé (at the time) and I at the beach and brought her husband and daughter so I had a million pictures that are just amazing.

She was so cute and nice and her daughter was so nice as well. She also had a surprise for me at the end of my wedding day and gave me a bunch of SUPER cute polaroids of my pictures at the beach and from my big day! She went above and beyond! I felt like we were best friends by the end of it all. I absolutely loved them and am recommending them to all my friends who are getting married in Southern California.

An artistic photographer with an eye for every moment of our big day was one of the most important finds for our wedding. Not only to capture the memories that will last a lifetime, but to do it in the romantic and tender way we envisioned our wedding to be.

We had the pleasure of having Michelle and Mark capture our wedding and are grateful to have found photographers for all of life’s special o...
ccasions. They’re also two of the nicest people you’ll ever come across.
From the very first meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Michelle and Mark are fun and energetic, down to earth, kind, and professional. They took the time to really get to know us, to collaborate with us, and they had a genuine vested interest in making sure our concerns were addressed and we got all of the photos we wanted. After our initial meeting and engagement session, we knew photography was going to be the least of our worries on our special day.
Weddings can be stressful with all of the things taking place but Michelle and Mark make their part seamless. We were so impressed with their ability to blend into the day, their efficiency to keep things on track, and ability to keep family/wedding party engaged. They interact so well with all of the other vendors, coordinators, and guests. To this day we get compliments not only on how amazing our wedding photos turned out but on how funny and warm-hearted our wedding photographers were.
Michelle and Mark’s talent is self-evident in the work they produce. They have an impeccable eye for capturing details and moments that are otherwise lost in the whirlwind of the day. For example, the sun was setting during our reception and they had the foresight to quickly take us outside for what turned out to be an incredible unplanned shot that is one of our favorites. They created many, many priceless memories to cherish and share. We are beyond pleased with the quality of all of the photographs.
Myles (their son who is just as fun, kind, and professional) manages the retro photo booth, with props, which was an absolute hit with all of our guests.
After all is said and done, what’s really left are the photographs to look back on and Michelle Johnson Photography exceeded all expectations we had for capturing our wedding day. We highly recommend the extraordinary MJP team to anyone and everyone looking for professional photographers.

est. By the end of our first meeting with Michelle, I knew that I wanted her to be our wedding photographer. I talked with Michelle for 2 hours which is quite long for a vendor interview, but it was GREAT! Michelle is so professional, yet warm and friendly. She responds quickly to texts and emails with any questions I had for her. What's great about this photography company is that it's a family business. Her husband Mark is her partner in crime, as well as her daughter (who I hear takes amazing photos); and I can't forget about her son who handles their photobooth for events. Michelle really does have an amazing team and family.
While on our first meeting with her, my fiance (now husband) and I had mentioned the idea of doing our engagement photos in San Francisco since that's were we got engaged. Michelle jumped right out of her seat and got so excited! Her and Mark love travelling and especially to San Francisco. Because of the tight budget I was on and the special recommendation from Jackie, Michelle contracted an amazing offer we could not refuse. It was everything I was looking for including engagement photos in The Bay with no travel fee charge. All I had to cover for them was flight and travel & food expenses around the city. It was a great deal I could not refuse.
The engagement shoot in San Francisco was so much fun! Michelle has this youthful energy that really comes out in her photos. At one point, we were shooting on Lombard Street, where the proposal happened, and Michelle gets into the plant and tree area and starts to shoot with her camera. It's so fun and refreshing to see a photographer in their element just shooting away and having a good time. It's really obvious that Michelle loves what she does. We all had an amazing photo shoot and it really came out in our photos.
As for the wedding day, Michelle and Mark were right on point. I could not have asked for a better set of photographers. They captured every single moment of my special day from the girls and I getting ready at the hotel, the surprise gift my husband gave me, all the way to our amazing reception.
It was such a pleasure to work with Michelle Johnson Photography. She even had our proofs ready just as we were settling in after our honeymoon. I couldn't have asked for a better photography company.

Michelle remembered all of my photo requests, taking control of the timing and of family/friends for pictures, and made us feel so comfortable. My pictures are everything I wanted and so much more. If you are in Orange County or the Inland Empire, you will be lucky to have Michelle capture your day! You can tell that Michelle really enjoys her job, and her happiness is contagious. She also really cares about her clients.
One more thing, we chose the package that includes the wedding album (engagement session and also some canvases). I have never seen a more beautiful, professional album. Also, we got so many pictures and each one is gorgeous. There is no doubt with MJP that you will definitely get amazing photos!
