Absolutely HORRIBLE. It has now been almost 2 months since my wedding and I have not heard from Michael. He double booked himself on the day of our wedding, he called me at 930am on the morning of my wedding (which started at 5 pm) to tell me he wasn't going to make it. Come to find out he knew multiple days prior to our wedding he wasn't going to make it. At this point he has basically taken our money and ran. DO NOT BOOK HIM. Not the kind of customer service you want for the most important day of your life and those once in a life time pictures

We hired Michael to provide a service. QUALITY service is what we expect for the dollar amount we paid. What a HUGE MISTAKE..... You can believe what you want but why would I lie . If someone is great, I will definitely praise them, but when you get bad service, or in this case no service, breaking contracts, I believe people should know what they are getting themselves into.

Displeased w-the photo's, didn’t do any of the photo’s like we discussed
No follow up
Missed appts with us, made excused as to why he couldn't keep appts with us and when he did I had to call him to make sure he was still taking our engagement photos. Imagine getting ready, to find out he had no plans on taking my photo’s that day. Um you’d think you’d call and say something to your clients….No I had to call him to see if he was still planning on shooting our engagement photos that day.. This happened more than once

He was very willing to take our money, but once he got the money his services we're no longer what we expected them to be.

He left my wedding early, he won't return calls, and he is not honoring our contract that was signed between both parties.
IF I were you I’d save your 800 dollars and go find another photographer you'll be glad you did in the end.
I guess it’s the old saying your buy cheap you get cheap..

And that’s what I got..

Michael with Imperious Photography was spectacular! We could not find a better photographer for us, especially for the price. Michael worked with me to make sure that myself and the rest of the bridal party were comfortable with pictures being shot throughout the day. He kept the posed photographs to a minimum, allowing for more candid photographs to be taken. I can't wait to see how the pictures come out!

Do not book him!!! 2 years later and we still have not gotten our wedding albums. He is a flake and does not follow through on his word.... 2 years and not one thing that we paid for or disccused....

I am not really good at writing this type of stuff, but here it goes. Mike was awesome! Using Mike as our photographer was probably one of the best decisions that we made while planning our wedding. From the beginning he was very easy to approach. Anytime we had questions he would call or email us back right away. He was very open to any suggestions that we had and always responded to any questions. Mike was even willing to travel a little ways to make our engagement pictures perfect!. It was awesome! I can hardly wait to see the pictures from the wedding!

Mike and Elisha were great to work with. They know what they are doing and love it! I am thankful that we chose Imperious Photography for our engagement and wedding pictures. Having two photographers was also amazing and provided for many more pictures to be taken.
