Michael was truly outstanding in every possible way--from our first meeting with him, we appreciated his professionalism, talent, customer-oriented attitude, and excellent reputation. Our wedding planner recommended him highly, and we couldn't have been happier that she did. Also, we noticed that Michael offers a great value for his top-notch service--his pricing was significantly more affordable than the other best-rated Twin Cities photographers, at no sacrifice of quality.

On our wedding day, Michael and his assistant excelled at relaxing the wedding party, honoring our request for more candid than posed shots, and making himself invisible at the wedding and reception. We felt like he was just a member of the party.

And the pictures! The pictures turned out so beautifully my dad burst into tears as soon as he saw them. Michael captured so many moments we didn't even know were happening, so many unexpected patches of light, so many wonderful expressions and interactions. The photos came out classy, glamorous, relaxed, and the opposite of cheesy--everything we wanted.

I offer Michael my very highest recommendation, as well as a huge debt of gratitude. No one's ever made my husband and me look so good!

Michael was recommended to us thru a friend who had recently worked with him and could not say enough positive things about him, and now, in return my husband and I cannot as well! We had to plan our wedding from states away and Michael made it easy for us to get our photo needs met and addressed over email and phone conversations. When our big day arrived any type of pre- wedding jitters melted away for he and his team arrived on time, followed the time line and made sure to get all the shots we had requested! Our results are everything we wanted and we enjoy reliving the moments of the day thru our photos! Michael and his team were a pleasure to work with!

Dear:

A note of my experience with MichaelB Photography…

I met Michael at a wedding I was previously in and was able to see firsthand how he interacted with the wedding party and then the final result of his time with us, loved the pictures. So naturally he was my first call for my big day. Personally, for my own wedding, I would use the words, creative, flexible, and fun to describe my time with Michael. From the organizing before my wedding and during the actual day. He was friendly, open to my direction, and overall easy to work with on a really important day. I was happy with the amount of moments captured and the quality of the work.

Kind regards,
Shannon

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Michael is! We got married in June, on the only rainy Saturday. Even though we had to use plan “B” for all our pictures he made the day stress-free. We had so many compliments from our wedding party and guests about how wonderful Michael was. He captured every moment of the day with meticulous precision.

Michael B is totally cool and very easy to work with. He has great perspective and has the ability and knowlege to take that 'different' shot along with all of the standard shots.

We absolutely love Michael Barnholdt. Wedding photos were one of the most important details for me when I began planning because I wanted to remember our wedding day and how we felt in those moments for the rest of our lives (and love how I looked, of course). We met with a few different photographers but were totally sold when we met Michael. He is so talented and easy to work with. He made everything leading up to the wedding simple and fabulous - from the engagement pictures to the extra-long wedding day. He is a great listener and took my direction, combined it with his expertise, and applied it to every aspect.

On our wedding day, I felt comfortable and relaxed. His style really helped to put the entire wedding party at ease and we had so much fun. We have some great shots of the whole group, not stuffy and formal but exciting and candid. Unlike any photos I've ever seen, completely unique to me & my husband.

And when we went to the lake to take some photos on the dock, heavy clouds rolled in with heavy rain. Complete downpour. Sirens were going off everywhere. I have the most amazing photos that he caught in those moments and even risked the livelyhood of his expensive equipment to make sure he caught the most of it. I'll never forget seeing him completely drenched from head to toe, with a huge smile on his face wiping down his camera so we could keep going. It was the highlight of our photos. Talk about amazing! He went above and beyond and even rocked it out at the reception in wet clothes. Micheal didn't miss a beat. And by the way, when my extended family insisted on their own series of pictures without the bride and groom, Michael stuck to my instructions and was sure to follow the plan we had discussed. He did a great job of balancing the demands of our wedding guests and never missed a beat with the bride and groom.

What more can you ask for from a photographer?? Thank you, Michael Barnholdt. You exceeded my expectations and made my dreams come true!

Michael was absolutely fantastic! He provided a top notch service for a very competitive price. The photographs were stunning - we now have a gallery of wedding photos hung in our house and we have received many compliments about how beautiful they look and how they really capture the moment.

One of the things that I most appreciated on our wedding day was that Michael was very good about taking a significant number of photos without becoming intrusive. When we reviewed our photos we were pleasantly surprised to see that he had captured moments when we hadn't even realized he was there. From the pictures at the alter to a photo of our menu - not a single detail was missed.

Michael was very easy to work with. His prices are services are straightforward - nothing hidden. We have grown to love Michael's pictures so much that we've continued to use him for all of our family photos. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone wishing for the most beautiful photos of their special day. Fantastic!
