One bride:

quoted saying

"I was looking for my wedding photographer on wedding wire and came across Ambrosia. I saw that they were offering a deal for a wedding photography plan that retails for $5,500 and offering it at $1995. Even though I was skeptical about this deal I decided to check them out. Once I came into their show room and sat down with their staff I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable. More importantly I was impressed with their talented photography and their other services. After I had left and spoke with my fiance we decided to book 5 of our main service vendors throgh Ambrosia. I had budgeted $15,000 for my 5 vendors, I received all of my 5 vendors through Ambrosia for less than $8.000. To me that's absolutely amazing! I saved $7,000, and to say my fiance wasn't happy would be a huge understatement. My most impressive review of Ambrosia is their vendors. These people are charging seriously less than what they charge by going to them directly. Ambrosia has convinced these high end vendors to give their clients incredible deals. I'm so glasd I found Ambrosia, and I know anyone who goes to them will as well!"

I heard of Ambrosia because they were a preferred vendor through my venue. We met with Allen and was extremely satisfied with what he had to offer. We hired him to do our engagement shoot, and was impressed with his work, so hired him for our wedding. His quality of work is amazing, and he is a great person. We ordered our Save the Date's through him for a great price. He is definitely going to be our photographer for any future events as well. I'm glad we chose him!!

I was contacting several photographers, and Allen responded to my emails quickly and was able to set a meeting up right away. The plan was to meet with a few photographers before making our decision. We booked with Ambrosia, our first meeting, without hesitation. Allen was very sweet, took his time with us, and answered all our questions. All interactions after that were easy and fun. Allen understands photography and couples! We had a great time at our engagement session and our wedding. Allen and his team were very professional and easy to have around. They didn't interfere with the ceremony or other vendors. We hardly knew we were having our pictures taken. I don't like having my picture taken, but Allen and his team made it easy and comfortable. The best part is we now have wonderful pictures that will last us a lifetime!

Michael, Michelle and Angel did an amazing job at my very complex wedding celebrations. We had a 3 day event starting off with a traditional Cambodian Ceremony and they were very flexible and willing to work with our crazy schedule. The bridal party reception photos were a blast to take and we love all the candid shots of everyone. Angel was our photographer at our 3rd event which was hosted at our Uncle's house with traditional Indian theme. The pictures turned out beautiful and they are priceless.

If I were to describe Allen in a couple of words...they would be professional and patient. He is professional in a sense of his character, attitude, and quality of work. My wife and I had some amazing camera shots on the Queen Mary despite some rowdy groomsmen (i.e. intoxicated, lol) and uncooperative bridal party. Allen was patient and relaxed in doing so resulting in some memorable photos of our special day.

I'm a person who doesn't like to be in front of a camera and Allen made it fun and relaxing. He allowed us to be natural yet gave us enough instruction to get amazing shots. All of my friends have commented how our engagement and wedding photographs look like their from a magazine ad because they look so artistic and stylized. I can't express how great it was to work with Allen!

My wife and I used Ambrosia Event Services through a business referral and we could not have been more pleased and happy with everything. From meeting before the wedding to go over our vision to the actual day, working with Michael was easy, professional, and rewarding. Our pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined. They were so perfect. I would fully recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer and not just for weddings, but for any type of event. Will use them for our anniversary party for sure!

The number one priority I wanted to have from my wedding was beautiful memories, and that's exactly what I got. The photographer was the first vendor that I booked. A. Micheals Photography (currently Ambrosia Event Services) creates their beautiful work with La Vie photobooks and they were within my budget! First, our engagement photos experience was phenominal!!! After we took a peek at our wedding photos, we were convinced that we didn't regret investing in a good photographer. Thank you Mr. Newsum!

My husband and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures that A. Michael's Photography took on our wedding day! I had made some suggestions pertaining to poses and pictures I'd like to create and he was completely open to it! During the bridal photo shoots, he had us do all the poses I suggested plus more!

He and assistant, Laura, were professionals, but friendly at the same time. They both put my husband and I at ease and encouraged us to be ourselves so our true personality can show in the photos.

A. Michael's Photography also shot our engagement photos and it was such a great preview of what was to come on our wedding day!

And one more thing: A. Michael's Photography is affordable! A. Michael's Photography will offer you high quality photographs at an affordable price, which is a definitely steal!

Michael is such an amazing photographer! He did both our engagement and our wedding photos. He is really creative and helped bring our vision alive in what we wanted for both shoots. He makes his clients feel very comfortable which ultimately makes the photos come out amazing. Michael and his team are very professional and the outcome of the photo albums are more than me and my husband could even imagined. The pictures are flawless. We will work with Michael and his team again!

Once again, Thank you for you hard work!

My husband and I got married in July 2011. We were recommended by our venue to A. Michael and because we were planning a CA wedding from NY we were very nervous about choosing things correctly. Michael made everything so easy for us! He always contacted me back in a timely manner with my crazy emails!! His prices are great and way below for the quality that we got! His pictures turned out amazing. His assistant Sarah was with us all day as well and they captured everything! We could not have been more pleased. His website lets you see all of the pictures and organizes them into folders for easy choosing. So many people are still commenting to us how beautiful the pictures are and the color changes are amazing. I highly recommend using this photographer!!

He made my day become so memorable that everytime I look at my albums and portraits I feel like I am totally reliving my special moment all over again. I was honored for him to do my engagement and wedding portraits. I am so satisfied with his work and will continue to use him for any upcoming events.

Finding a photographer is a very difficult decision, and is a very stressful process. One does not know who they can trust, but when we met Michael he eased our fears. He really made us feel comfortable and worked with us very well, even through difficult weather. He is a very approachable person and warm heart. I stresses about all the details about the wedding and he was able to handle me :). We really feel like we got a lot of value for what we paid.

The quality of his craftsmanship was superb and far beyond comparison. Jaime's ability to create artistic shots shined through in our portraits. We highly recommend A. Michael's Photography.

He took a good combination of still shots and candid moments. Our wedding day was captured perfectly by A. Michael's Photographers and we're so happy to have these memories forever. I highly recommend A. Michael's Photographers for your wedding!!

A. Michael's was fantastic. They captures some of the best moments at our wedding. They were able to capture the happiest and most intimate of moments. Moments that were totally “us.” Michael was attentive and not intrusive in the least. We have so many great memories of that day and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Allen at A. Micheal's photographty was a pleasure to work with. The pictures turned out beautifully and we couldn't be happier. After we took some posed photos, he blended into the background and got some great candid shots of my husband and I as well as our guests.

He was on-time, professional, great to work with and reasonably priced. I couldn't reccomend him more.

A. Michael's Photography was wonerful! They made my wedding day memorable because I have all of the beautiful photos to look at. A. Michael's Photography is very professional and is a photographer you can trust. And response very quickly to e-mails and is always there when you have questions or to set up an appointment. A. Michael's Photography will work with you on budget also, we did not have a huge budget and they wanted to work with us because they did not want us to go somewhere else and settle for a less experienced photographer and get horrible photos. They really do care about your wedding and look at it as if it is their own, and put hard work into it. I highly recommend A. Michael's photography!

A good photographer is the most important element at any event and this certainly proved to be the case with A. Michael's Photography.

From the moment I met Michael, I knew I was in good hands. Although quiet and soft spoken, the work displayed in his studio evidenced his many years in the business and the individual care he appeared to give each of his clients. Every wedding book held its own unique, pictorial story.

Michael and his team showed up and covered my wedding beautifully and seamlessly. My pictures were delivered in an amazing amount of time and were so outstanding that it has literally taken me months to select what I wanted. Frankly, I didn't think the choices would be so hard because I am an older bride, not terribly photogenic, and and thought there may be only one or two great shots. Wow was I wrong!

When all is said done, the only thing a bride and groom have after their wedding is photographs. We will be forever grateful for the lasting memories provided to us by A. Michael's.

We were very happy with A. Michael's photography and his professionalism. He made sure that he got to know my husband and I on a personal level instead of "just another wedding". Also we felt like he customized his photography style for our needs. Our family was so impressed with his photography that my brother-in-law used him for his wedding a couple of years later.

We interviewed several photographers for our wedding. We were looking for someone I could completely trust on our special day. This is not something you can do over because the photographer missed the shot or blew the shoot.
From the first impression with Michael, we knew he was different. He was very personable and professional. He did not want to sell us on anything. He had us fill out an information packet and interviewed us to get a feel of what we wanted (what a concept). From there, he worked with us to develope our wedding package. Our engagement collage was so perfect, we had our guests sign the matting on the way into the reception. The wedding and reception photos were amazing. Michael capture our day forever. All of the pictures are posted online for your review & allows your guests to order their special memories without bugging the couple. The wedding ablum is beautiful and customized for us. We had him blow up our favorite picture on to a canvass to give it a paiting affect. Michael & his daughter, Jamie, exceeded our expectations - which is what you want on your wedding day.
Jamie & Michael - Thank you for capturing our wedding forever!

A. Michael's knowledge and expertise is shown from day one when meeting for the consultation on offering his services. This is exemplified through the span of time we worked together putting our wedding day. The guidance that he gave to my wife and I had insured in us a sence of calming allowing us to feel more at ease on wedding day even though so much was needed to be done.

Allen was an amazing photographer. He was easy to work with in the planning stages, especially since I was planning the wedding from Colorado. We did most of our correspondence by email, and he was always very prompt to reply. On the day of the wedding, he was equally great. He was very professional, and he's been doing this a long time, so he knows how to handle brides hurrying to get the finishing touches done, as well as difficult family members. :) Most of the time, you didn't even know he was there, and that allowed him to capture some great moments. One of the reasons why we picked him was the quality of his photographs as well as the price.

I was originally attracted to this company from a wedding website offering a great deal. As I started inquiring about their services, I had a very quick response. I was very at ease with Allen because it was clear that he really knew what he was doing. The day of the wedding, he came to my parents home where we were getting ready. He started shooting right away without anyone needing to hold his hand during such a hectic time- he made himself right at home. He helped me to coordinate the timing of the first look with the groom which was very important to me. He and his assistant directed us into poses that were very natural for us, yet we wouldn't have thought to pose in. They were very attentive and easy to work with. After seeing the photos, I was blown away! They captured the beautiful moments of our very memorable day. I can't say enough about them. My whole family was so impressed. They also provided a disc of ALL the photos so that we could and keep them all, which was rare to find without extra fees. I am so grateful that we chose them as our photographer. I would definitely recommend without any question.

We found Ambrosia through the Wedding Channel. Our wedding took place on July 7, 2012 at 3 different venues. It featured a Thai Buddhist Ceremony, Chinese Tea Ceremony, and a reception at 3 different locations (4 including the wedding party photos at The Gamble House in Pasadena). Allen was the main photographer at the event. We purchased the Gold Package which included all of our images on a DVD, a slide show to preview our pictures, 2 mini photo books for our parents, and a 10 by 10 photo book for ourselves. Excellent deal for the quality of photos we received!
From beginning to end, Allen provides a very thorough photography experience. He handles photography with much respect and professionalism. Allen was able to masterfully photograph our wedding. We really appreciated his ability to make it a memorable personal experience. He has a talent for capturing special moments. Allen's photography and overall workmanship is quite up-to-date. In particular, what we really enjoyed was his modern practices that he was utilizing. Not only is he on-point with his photography skills, but he is more than capable of combining a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere through it all. The balance was conveyed throughout the photos we ended up with.
Overall, we were really happy with the results! (Trust me, I'm a pretty picky about pictures, too.) We ended up with over 1500 images for our 12 hour day! The reception ran a little late and he even stayed longer to capture our memories until the very end.
I would recommend Allen and his team to any couple who is about to get married!
