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!

Michael is very talented and a pleasure to work with. His easy going style meshed well with ours and made us feel comfortable while he photographed us. It’s clear he enjoys what he does and my wedding party commented how it made them relax in front of the camera too. He was able to capture all the important moments in a very unobtrusive way and even stayed past the contracted time taking photos. Overall, we thought he was a great value and we were happy with our photos.

We are thrilled to have found and chosen Michael Bonfigli as our wedding photographer. He was so professional and warm and personable and we couldn't be happier with the photos! He truly captured the spirit, fun, beauty and glamour of the evening, plus the shots of me and my husband look so genuine and romantic too. This is the most important decision is wedding planning and we searched long and hard for the right photographer and couldn't be happier with our decision.

Michael Bonfigli took my wedding photos, and he was absolutely amazing. He was so pleasant, easy to work with, flexible, and talented. Michael also does both traditional wedding portraits and fabulous candids - the best of both worlds - and you album is included with the package. I would unequivocably recommend him to anyone for all their wedding and photography needs.

We planned our wedding in 2.5 months and looked to Michael B's photography to capture some key moments in the course of 7 hours. Because of the timing he was able to work with us on pricing, comparable to other photographers in his range. I would say overall, we were pleased with his outside shots in black and white, but felt that his assistant Amanda produced color shots that were more to our liking. She's a rising star and if you can't afford Michael, we would highly recommend Amanda.

Overall, great black and white shots with a memorable vintage feel to them. Amanda was great---great color shots!
