Ben Michalski.Com....always gives Full Reprint Rights for your wedding images...No More Proofing!


First a bit about me; I am a professional wedding photographer...in addition to being just a professional photographer. There are several major differences, please allow me to explain. As a pro wedding photographer I have an obligation to you as my client and there are several things that are incumbent upon me to function in the capacity of a "true professional".

1: I run a real business so I present myself as such, well dressed on your day, well mannered and well skilled in the art and disciplines of photography.

2: I call myself a professional wedding photog because I not only get paid for my services...I actually know how to photograph a wedding from start to finish with no cheat sheet...I’ve done over 400 weddings.

3: I show up sober, energetic, enthusiastic and ready to be at your beck and call in order to create the memory that will last a lifetime.

4: I do it with class, respect and dignity and will be most gracious and friendly to all you invite.

5: I will strive to make you , your family and your guest most comfortable and relaxed with humor, a vast knowledge of photography and a smile

6: I will never insult, become angered or dis respect a guest NO MATTER WHAT!

7: I will photograph your day with the creative focus of the best the industry has to offer. My Talent, My Skill, My Equipment ( which is state of the art) My upbeat and relaxing personality and...My love for the work.

8: I will shoot with 2 (two) state of the art Canon cameras one of which is the Flagship of the Canon line and the most advanced and powerful camera on the planet with lenses that are made of the same glass as the Hubble Space Telescope.

9: I will protect your images in a manner that very few photographers do...and deliver a " bang for your hard earned buck" that few, if any, of my peers can match.

10: I will never upsell, over sell, "back end sell" or make you spend more money by buying back your own images. I do not do proofing. What I capture are all yours to keep, print, copy and share. I may however make your images available on a website for your guest to buy if they so choose to do so. I do not do this for everybody..but will so if
requested for anybody.


This is my commitment and promise to you!

All I ask for is...you feed me the same food you eat. You are just as friendly and loving and hopefully are planning a lifetime...not just a day.

because the more in love you are...the better the pictures will be...it’s just that simple. AND... I don’t care if it’s raining, snowing, hailing or thunder storming...I can get the shot....every time.

If this sounds like what you are looking for in your professional wedding photographer...then give me a shout! We can get together and see if we are a match. Read less

yepper....laid back photographers are happy photographers! They also happen to be highly skilled...which is why they can be so relaxed. Uptight photographers are that for a reason....insecurity with the dang camera :)
Thanks Sue..

So far everything has been great. I don't have my final wedding photos yet but Ben did our engagement pics too which turned out great. During the wedding, he was not imposing at all and very funny and friendly. He also was one of the cheapest photographers I meet with.

Thanks for the nice review...but I am not sure if I am 'cheap" since my basic package starts at $1800.00
The images have been delivered and they are "spectacular!"

Ben was such a great photographer to work with. He has a great personality and made it fun to pose for pictures. We found him using The Knot and were incredibly impressed by his portfolio when we visited his offices. The thing I liked most about him was his artistic style coupled with his laid back attitude. During our wedding, we never felt like he was in our faces or annoying about getting the shots we wanted. He just got them done and they turned out beautifully. I am so glad that we went with him as our photographer and would recommend him to anyone.

Sharon...if all brides where as nice as you the wedding biz would be a breeze! I have been fortunate to have had wonderful brides in 2007...I am so happy you where happy with me and my services. I put my heart and soul into my photography and to see the results in coments like these makes me a 'happy guy!!!!"
But all of my brides this year had the one thing in common I just love to see and actually require for me to be their photographer...they where madly in love with their man and where more interested in planning a lifetime...not just a day. And the pictures are the proof to the pudd'en!
Thank you and everyone else who commented here..and have a wonderful "first new year together".
