Michael's photos were exceptional; he captured everything we had asked for plus much more. He did an excellent job of corralling rogue family members for the portrait shots before the wedding. He is also immensely patient and easy-going--a pleasure to work with. Michael was not at all obtrusive during the ceremony, which we greatly appreciated.

Michael did an absolutely fantastic job at our wedding. He was professional from the very first time that we spoke with him. He first took engagement pictures for us which turned out beautifully. At the wedding, he was prompt, professional and incredibly easy to work with and did such an amazing job of capturing the day. Would definitely recommend him to anyone!

My husband Stephen and I got married 2 weeks ago. We feel SO pleased we chose Michael and are SO satisfied with his work.

I contacted Michael after seeing he had been named "Best of Weddings" on the Knot for 5 years in a row, reading many positive reviews, and seeing his portfolio online.

Meeting Michael in person was really a joy for us. Michael exudes kindness! We had many questions for him and he gave us respectful and informative answers. In our subsequent correspondence, Michael continued to impress us b/c he was accessible, receptive to our requests, and organized.

On the wedding day, I felt comfortable the moment Michael arrived and trusted him to do a good job. Throughout the day, he gave helpful instructions for various shots and worked efficiently. At one point, Stephen and I asked Michael to photograph our personalized menu, only to learn he had already captured that detail and more. At the end of the day, we asked Michael to stay another hour, which he graciously accepted.

Family members commented, "Michael's very good. You didn't really notice him until he wanted to make himself noticed." Michael handled well group shots of different sides of our family (dozens of people from each side, let me tell you), everyone looking everywhere, young children, and other iPhone-equipped family competing with Michael for shots.

On our honeymoon, Stephen and I with pleasant surprise received a link to the viewing gallery of our photos. Soon thereafter, Michael linked us the final gallery. When asked for CD's of the photos, the very next day Michael met with Stephen to give them. We were so pleased with his promptness. We LOVE our wedding photos. I can hardly believe they're pictures of us! Bright, well-framed, beautiful, and opportune captures. We highly recommend Michael!

We love Michael. He had great communication throughout the entire wedding process and fulfilled all of our requests. On the day of the wedding, he showed up on time and was everywhere he needed to be. His presence kept us calm throughout the day and he somehow managed to capture every important moment. He also got us our wedding photos very quickly – and we were thrilled with each and every one. Our parents, bridal party and guests are still talking about how wonderful he was and how much they liked him! I would recommend Michael to any bride or family who is looking for a quality photographer. He was truly outstanding.

Michael Brook was SPECTACULAR to work with for our wedding, I cannot recommend him highly enough!

I contacted him on pretty short notice for a wedding (5 months out) with a smaller than usual, somewhat out-of-the-box backyard event, and he was totally flexible in providing what we needed. He checked in regularly with me during the planning process, and he was always upbeat and excited about the big day, which made me more excited! As the day approached, Michael set up a call to get a feel for the specific shots we wanted to capture as well as the feeling that we wanted from our photos.

He NAILED it - as I look at these pictures, I am transported back to the day and everything wonderful I felt then. We shot in a bunch of different locations with different lighting and other logistical challenges, and Michael handled them all like a pro, while helping us feel relaxed. The images are simply. gorgeous.

On the day, Michael was punctual and got to work with minimal direction, a testament to his experience and the preparation he had done ahead of time. As a business owner, Michael was very straightforward - we knew exactly what to expect ahead of time. He was extremely accommodating in giving us control over our images. He was absolutely professional throughout our experience, and made things easier for us at every turn.

As I looked around during our toasts toward the end of the evening and saw Michael - shooting while mixing with our friends and family and having a great time himself - I knew we had worked with the perfect photographer.

Work with Michael Brook for your wedding. You will be thrilled.
