Michaell Bennett Kress is a SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!! :) I want to thank you Michael for being so COOL. You were so great, kind and cool on our engagement shoot which made us want you and no one else to document our wedding :) Honestly, it was you and your sweet assistant that kept me calm through out the whole day. You brought such a positive attitude with you the moment you walked on site. I sincerely thank you for your professionalism and most importantly wonderful attitude.

P.S. my mom has already decided on wanting you doing a year anniversary photo shoot of us and the whole pregnancy and baby pictures (Hopefully in 10 years lol)

Susan Pleiman and Denis Kan of MBK were a dream to work with!!! I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with them. They were absolutely amazing to work with and not only did I notice this, but many of my guests commented on how fantastic they were. I cannot wait to see my pictures, but based on the experience I am sure that they will be truly spectacular!

We had the BEST time at our wedding and reception and our photographer Shmulik was FANTASTIC! He was running around ALL DAY LONG making sure he got all the best shots...and I mean literally running. He was working our wedding by himself and you would never know that there wasn't a team of photographers there! He really went above and beyond and is such a genuinely kind and professional guy. All the guests loved him too! THANK YOU!!!!!

Susan Pleiman did our wedding and we think she ROCKS! She and all the staff at MBK (especially Geoff) was super helpful in helping us to create a package that worked for us. We chose to skip the album and go for the 2nd point of view shooter which was great for all of the pre-wedding events at a Jewish ceremony. We loved our engagement shots and with over 1200 pictures to choose from I could not be more excited about our wedding pics. It was also so great to get them 1 month after the wedding rather than have to wait a year like some brides. The assistants and other shooter were great and I feel we got a nice mix of candid�s and portraits. I highly recommend putting together a list of pictures you want. We somehow managed to miss a picture of my husband with his best friend which was totally my fault so make sure to write it down and give it your photographers. I plan on using MBK for all of our family celebrations still to come.

We really like Michael. He is a good guy. We were pleased with the engagement shots but highly displeased with the subcontractor/webiste he used to display the photos. Photos were shipped late if at all.
With regard to the wedding, although a number of his shots were very good, we did feel we got the journalistic style that we discussed. Some wonderful images, but overall a disappointment.
Getting the album completed has also been a challenge, marked by a number of small errors.
Michael Bennett Kress is a good photographer, but perhaps not the right one for us.
