Michael is a very gifted photographer who expertly captured hundreds of beautiful moments at our wedding. He was so easy to work with and really efficient when we were pressed for time, a true professional. He takes absolutely gorgeous candid shots and made both of us feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'm beyond thrilled with the final product and would recommend him to any couple, without hesitation. Thanks so much for your wonderful work, Michael!!

I felt like the luckiest bride in the world when we had been looking for weddding photographers and found Michael Bonfigli!!! I looked at his work online and fell in love with his ability to capture the emotion in such an important day!
We met with him and it was a perfect fit for us! He was friendly,
Extremely kind and amazingly flexible! (I ended up having 2 ceremonies and he graciously agreed to do both!) We received our pics and love them! We couldn't have asked for a better more amazing photographer! We were so thrilled and would love to hire him again and again!

We were so lucky to find Michael for our wedding. The most important thing I wanted captured were photos of dying mother with myself and our family and friends. Michael captured some of the most beautiful and lasting memories that I hold so dearly as she died shortly after my husband and I got married and our wedding day was her "last best day". Not only were the images personal and special, but he captured the feelings and joy of our wedding day and he was so easy to work with, especially in the time frame we needed him, and we couldn't have been happier!

Michael was excellent to work with. Before the wedding, he was super responsive, easy to talk to, answered all our questions, and had a great portfolio. At the wedding he was prompt, courteous, friendly, and was able to work with us well to get all the pics we had in mind. He also had great on-the-spot ideas to take advantage of the light and surroundings. He was able to handle a huge group shot with my family and my wife's family well. The photos were up on the web quickly after the wedding. We were blown away by the photos he took and are completely satisfied. I would definitely recommend Michael.

Michael was such a blessing! My favorite photos are the candid moments he captured. He is an exceptional photo journalist and still captures great posed photos. His candid photos tell a beautiful story of our wedding day! The proofs had me crying more than I did on our actual wedding day!

Michael has a great personality and really felt like a close friend on our wedding day. He gets excited when he snaps great photos and really caught all of our emotions and happiness so perfectly.

We highly recommend Michael to anyone for any occasion!

Michael Bonfigli is a photo journalist. He told the story of our daughter's wedding in beautiful detail catching the emotions and the energy photographically. From getting ready to the "reveal" to the pre-wedding photos , the ceremony, and the reception--all chronicled exquisitely.

Remarkably, no one noticed the photographer! Yet he was omnipresent.

His organization and presentation of the photo galleries was excellent.

We give him our highest recommendation. He is the best!!!

Our pictures are amazing and we got to see them so quickly. I knew we made the right choice when we selected Michael, but I could not be more pleased with how everything worked out and how wonderful every single picture looks. He captured the day perfectly!

Michael, and his second shooter, Amanda, arrived right on time and were shooting pictures within seconds of arriving! They did a great job focusing on all the details and pre-ceremony pictures. They were unobtrusive during the ceremony, but seemed to have every shot we would have wanted.

After the ceremony, we headed downtown for some great pictures at the monuments. They were great providing direction, but not too much that they came across bossy, but just enough that we knew what to do. We even went to where my husband and I met playing kickball. We have some great shots with my dress hiked up to my knees playing kickball in heels!

Once at the reception, we got the required family shots and other great location shots of the bridal party along with pictures of me with my groom. I knew the party would go fast, but I had no idea how fast. Thank goodness Michael and Amanda were there because I have tons of pictures reminding me of the party, they seemed to have got a picture of almost every single one of our guests. If you ask Michael and Amanda I think they had a great time too ☺ I can’t wait for our albums…which we should get within 3 months.


Engagement pictures were also a great dry run to know what to expect when shooting with Michael on our wedding day.

I searched through hundreds of photographer websites until I ran upon Michael. I immediately loved his work and made an appointment with him. I decided to hire at our first meeting and he did a great job on our wedding photos! Him and his assistant, Amanda, were right on time on our wedding day and were both a pleasure to work with. They were not obtrusive at all and we barely noticed they were there most of the time! Because of timing we didn't get in all the photos I had planned, but what he came up with anyways was great! We would definitely recommend Michael to any brides looking for great photos!
