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.

I had a wedding of about 175 people and Michael captured every moment and every detail with well over 2,000 pictures. My wedding day was the best day of my life, but it also flew by. The pictures I have now will last forever. He took great shots of me, my wedding party, family, friends, and great shots of couples. He also got a lot of the details that I missed being the bride such as cocktail hour and the beautiful harpist playing. I would highly recommend Michael for any wedding small or large.

Michael's relaxed demeanor during our initial meeting gave us the confidence that he would be perfect to work with on a potentially hectic day, and that was the case. We didn’t want our wedding and reception to be about taking pictures—we'd rather miss Aunt Sally in a group photo than completely miss our cocktail hour—but rather we were relying on Michael to document the event as we participated fully and enjoyed our special day.

Michael understood completely: He identified opportunities for great shots along the way, and for group shots, worked quickly and efficiently to get what we wanted without taking more pictures than necessary, so things kept moving.

Michael captured all the critical moments before, during and after the ceremony and at the reception, as well as dozens of portrait-quality images of guests—both candids and quick poses—and details from throughout the afternoon and evening.

Perhaps my favorites were from the dancing, where Michael's documentary-style action shots captured the exuberance and joy of the guests as they careened around the floor, or, in quieter moments, danced cheek-to-cheek under the shifting colored lights.

Michael was put on the spot when, unexpectedly, a fireworks show erupted over the harbor in the middle of our reception, and we now have a series of incredible, amazing, picture-perfect fairy-tale-wedding images of us smiling, kissing, twirling, and being in love while fireworks explode above our heads.

Afterwards, Michael gave us access to an on-line gallery viewable in one mega slide show, or within more manageable categories ("Pre-Ceremony"; "Ceremony": "Details"; etc.), and provided all the original files--- gigabytes worth---for downloading via DropBox.

I could not have been happier with our choice for our special day, and I could not have been more impressed with the job Michael did. We felt as if we were in the hands of a real pro the entire time.

I couldn't be any happier with the wedding photography experience I received working with Michael Brook! Michael took the time to meet with my husband and I more than once to plan out the day's events so that our day ran smoothly and without any interruptions. He had already memorized everyone's name in the wedding party before arriving to work with us. His calm style and helpful nature made him a pleasure to work with through the planning process all the way through my wedding day. I couldn't believe that he had already emailed me a link with a complete set of wedding photo proofs before I had gotten home from our honeymoon! He provides an excellent level of customer service and listens to exactly how you envision your day in order to help you capture your wedding day memories in a stress free environment. And the pictures come out beautiful! I would highly recommend Michael Brook to anyone!

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Michael as our photographer.

Not only is he a VERY talented photographer who took 100's of beautiful portraits and candid photos throughout our wedding day, but he is an absolute pleasure to work with! Michael always responded in real-time to my emails and gave detailed answers to my question prior to the wedding. We also chose to do an engagement shoot with him and had an absolute blast doing so!

He arrived early the day of the wedding (which makes every bride relaxed), and during our photo sessions he always remained calm, focused, and organized. He brought the list of pictures I had previously told him I would like to take and was flexible enough to take spontaneous photos as I came up with them throughout the day.

While on our honeymoon I got an email from him saying my gallery was ready for viewing online and I had digital copies of all our pictures within a month after our wedding.

I 100% recommend Michael to all brides and would definitely use him again for other milestones in mine and my husbands lives.

Thank you for everything Michael we loved working with you.

absolutely wonderful to work with! very responsive to emails/phone calls.

he memorized everyone's name in the bridal party which made for a super easy and smooth portrait session.

the best thing about his work is that he is very inconspicuous, you don't even notice him taking photos at the event. ive been to many weddings where the photographer was front and center with all their lighting equipment that they blocked the ceremony.

definite thumbs up for Michael Brook!

Michael was amazingly professional and provided the most amazing coverage of our wedding. We booked him pretty far in advance, and he was very easy to communicate with during the long period between the planning stage and the actual wedding. His pricing is very reasonable for the level of quality and professionalism he provides. Our photos are so beautiful, and he was amazing at going with the flow of things, and not adding to the chaos. I would work with him again in a heartbeat! Thanks Michael!!

Michael was a real sweetheart about everything! He put us at ease, made sure he captured all the moments that we wanted, and did it all with genuine sensitivity and caring. I'd recommend Michael to any couple looking for quality, whether gay, straight or anything in between.

Michael did a wonderful job. Prior to the weddding he was organized and reposonsive to all of my emails and phone calls. He adjusted well to last minute requests that I had. I had so much trust in Michael going into the wedding that I was able to remain stress-free all day long. He kept us on schedule throughout the day so that I did not have to worry to look at the clock. The pictures turned out wonderfully. He captured all of the shots I was hoping to have of the wedding, plus many more that have turned out to be my favorites. And he was very promt in editing the photos and uploading them to the website. Highly recommended!

I can't say enough about Michael!!! First and foremost, he was professional and available- not only BEFORE the wedding with our thousands of questions, but after as well. That's super important. He didn't push anything on us as far as buying prints from him, and has been so helpful about any questions we have had, even though our wedding is long over with! His communication is TOP NOTCH!
Now, onto the photos. The pictures themselves are breathtaking. Just look at his website. He captures moments, not just images. Things that would have otherwise been missed. You can see emotionality in just about everything he does. They are artistic, creative and charged. His turn around time was RIDICULOUS- we actually got access to our photos on our honeymoon. Please- just before you book someone, look at his site- give him a call- you won't want to go anywhere else!!!

Michael was such a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting, I immediately felt comfortable with his calm professionalism - we really appreciated that he was able to offer very helpful guidance without being at all pushy. He really listened to our needs and our desires for the day.

And the photos were beautiful! My husband hates having his photo taken and generally appears stilted in photos, but Michael managed to capture many lovely moments for us. We also appreciated Michael's willingness to go with the flow, changing schedules for before the ceremony photos at a moment's notice.

In short, I would highly recommend Michael!

Michael Brook photographed our wedding and we, in addition to our families, were more than pleased with his work. Michael was kind, courteous and responsive. At the wedding, his presence was so understated (you would not have even known that there was a photographer there) but he was able to capture beautiful and intimate pictures with a unique and magical perspective. We were so happy with the pictures. He was very flexible about which options/package we choose as well. Overall, we highly recommend Michael Brook as an excellent wedding photographer.

I loved Michael Brook. We chose him because he was actually there when my husband proposed -- just a coincidence. He was photographing another couple in the Public Garden, saw my husband drop to his knee, and rushed over to take a few pictures. We then exchanged email addresses and he sent them to us. He was so excited for us and kind (and professional), so we decided it was fate and used him for the wedding.

I like him because he is laid-back and really sweet. The weather on our wedding day was so bad and all of our plans to take pictures outside around the beach were pretty much ruined. But, he was so relaxed and had a plan B and really put us at ease. He could have panicked, but he was completely calm. And, of course, the photos are wonderful and full of personality, which was exactly what we wanted.

Michael Brook was a fabulous photographer at our wedding in Somerville, MA in May 2012. We chose him because we loved his candids and he did not disappoint. He also did a great job with the portraits. He was with us for 6 hours and he was nothing but professional the whole time and always had a smile on his face. He had great ideas that made for great portraits and he was extremely flexible. He even gave some of the parents a ride to the reception. Everyone has commented that our pictures are fabulous and for the cost, we think we got a great value. He was easy to work with and plan for the event as well. He seemed to disappear in to the background and still got amazing pictures. We asked him to edit a few pictures where a strap from my dress was showing that should not have been and he made the edit quickly and very well. We can't say enough good things about Michael. He had our pictures to us very quickly (I can't remember, but I think it was between 1 and 2 weeks) and he even hand delivered the DVD of full resolution pics to us. We highly recommend Michael Brook as a photographer for your event!

We recently got married and had him do the photography for our wedding. We could not be happier! Though Michael might say otherwise, we wanted someone to come and take great snaps, but really be in the background and not to attempt to stage too much in terms of photos. We wanted to have him capture moments as they happened during the day, with the exception of some set photos after our church ceremony. Michael was open to doing whatever we wanted and he did not disappoint. Most importantly the photos came out great!

and professionalism before during and after the wedding, spending as much time as needed in person and over the phone, to address our needs. During the wedding, the only thing you noticed about him was his positive energy! We are so grateful for our spectacular wedding photos, any couple that chooses him is in really good hands.

I HIGHLY recommend Michael - I felt very lucky to have discovered him during my on-line research while wedding planning last year. He is worthy of five stars all around -- personality (incredibly kind and easy-going, with great sense of humor), skills/talent and creativity (we just love our engagement and wedding photos -- taken at Arnold Arboretum, St. Ignatius of Loyola, and Veronique), and communication/reliability (*always* prompt with email responses and timely for meetings/events). We absolutely enjoyed working with him and are thrilled with the memories that he captured for us. We also appreciate now owning the digital negatives of all photos taken! If given the opportunity, I would use Michael again without hesitation -- He really helped to make our big day a special one.

He is very easy to work with, as we barely knew he was at the wedding. Pictures and the album came out great, I had lots of comments from the bridesmaid how easy and non-intrusive he was. Most defintely recommend Michael.

For me and my Fiance (now husband) Choosing our wedding photographer was one of our most important decisions. With so many photographers to choose from it quickly became overwhelming..We orginally booked with another company, somehow they double booked, and so they outsourced us to Michael, we had not previsously seen any websites from him, and were a bit nervous. Michael called us on the phone weeks before the wedding and made a point to learn about us, and our family that would attend the wedding, immediatly he formed a very professional relationship with us and gained our trust. The Big day came and Michael, DID NOT miss a single shot!!! I was one of those brides that had to have a sunset photo, and the sun was radiply setting as the limo's were racing for the seaside cliffs in Cohasset, MA. The entire wedding party plus Michael were running and climbing trying to catch my "dream shot" Well of course we captured the images, and to this day my friends still give me a hard time about climbing a cliff in heels! hahaha, It was wonderful to have a photographer that was also willing to literaly put his neck out their for us! So many of our photos are beyond words!!!! And they are still all over our house! 3 years later! Trust me you will not regret hiring Michael as your photographer, it was a blessing that fate brought him to us :)

My wife and I hired Michael for our wedding on 5/29/11 in Haverhill, MA with the reception at the Granite Rose in Hampstead, NH. We were totally pleased with all Michael offered. We met with him at first to go over album samples and he provided previous works that were all amazing. Michael was all about making the wedding day our day, we had a list of specific shots we wanted, he was able to capture all of those and then some. He took pictures that we had not thought of, like the limo, food and outside the church. His positive attitude through out the day was amazing, as everyone knows wedding days can be really stressful, but Michael was 100% positive. Throughout the whole ceremony and reception it was like he was not there, which is the best. He got all the wonderful shots but was not in the way at all. Some previous weddings we went to you had to look around the photographer to look at the couple at the alter, not with Michael. If he thought of a good suggestion he was very polite about bringing it up. All of his suggestions worked really well too. We looked at the online album after we got home from our honeymoon and were blown away. All the photos were amazing and crystal clear. His website is very user-friendly. The only problem we have is narrowing down the many great photos to fit in the album. We look forward to finalizing our album with Michael, and he has not at all been pushy in this process, he is letting us go at our own pace which is very appreciated. I would highly recommend Michael Brook for any wedding or event.

Everyone in my family fell in love with him when they met him. He is so warm and excited to do what he does. I wanted genuine pictures (not overly edited) that caught the emotion of the day and Michael did that beautifully. He captures all the little moments that make your day so special. Sometimes men do not like having their pictures taken, or being told how to pose, but Michael was great at making them all feel comfortable, and getting them to pose without making them think they were being ordered. Everyone felt so comfortable working with him. He is very open to suggestions, and truly wants to make the client happy and fulfill their requests/suggestions. He is so great to work with, and we plan on working with him again for future events.

My husband and I are so thrilled with Michael! Not only is he a fabulous photographer, but he truly a wonderful person. He shot both our engagement session and our wedding. His talent is clear when you look at his portfolio. He has a photojournalistic style with an artistic flair. He carefully edits all of the shots and adds amazing retouches (color correcting, fishbowl-style effects, etc.). What we really liked best about Michael was his ability to capture the moment without being intrusive. I barely noticed him at the wedding!

He always responded quickly to my emails and calls. He also asked lots of questions about what was important to us, what shots we wanted, and customized a package for us. We did not choose one with an album, but we may end up going back to him to do one after all! I found his price range to be very reasonable compared to others at his level of talent. I would highly recommend Michael!

Best decision we made!!
After leaving the meeting with Michael we almost turned around to try to catch him and write him a check. We were hooked! He was so easy to talk to and took such interest in the plans and our families and even what we liked to do for fun. After seeing the photos we realized he used that information to know exactly what we would want to see. He is amazingly talented and artistic and we could not be happier with the photos! The day of the wedding could not have been better. We had so much fun with Michael. He was so enthusiastic and made everything so easy. If we were going to do it all over again we would absolutely call Michael.

We are frequently told that our wedding pictures look like something out of Conde Nast! Michael captured the setting, mood, and personality of our wedding, our guests, and us in such a warm, intimate way. I got married later in life to the man of my dreams, so the day for us was about love, luck, and having fun. It's hard to explain - his style is modern and journalistic, so he captures the best moments as they happen with an incredible eye for detail. I think someone else mentioned that he captures the little things so well, and it's true - like my ring bearers waiting thoughtfully to be announced; my husband's face as I walked down the aisle; the sheer jubilation on both of our faces as we danced and partied with all of our favorite people...when I look at my wedding album I am amazed at how he was able to be at the right place at the right time to get some of the shots he did. We LOVED working with Michael - he's accommodating, inventive, unintrusive, warm, and most of all, his finished product speaks for itself. If you want wedding pictures that immediately transport you back to your special day, and you want pictures that are fresh as well as lovely, choose Michael!

Michael Brook did such a wonderful job on our wedding day and we loved having him with us! It was so important to us that we feel comfortable with the person we were going to have sharing our most important day, and we did a lot of research and carefully interviewed. Michael's easy, open attitude and the way he listened to us put him ahead of the rest from the start. His professionalism is flawless. He was the only vendor I never had to worry about even once, always quick to respond to us. Michael even took time to learn our families' stories, and I felt like it really made a difference in the way that he chose some of his shots, which were so perfect that only someone who knew exactly what it would mean to us could have done it. When we did our bridal party shoot, he was spontaneous, fun, and we really enjoyed having him with us. During the ceremony and reception, he somehow disappeared from our sight but got amazing photos, even close-ups. Our guests raved about his photos, and we're forever grateful for his artistic talent and warmth that he brought to our special day. We love his work so much that we plan to ask him to photograph our baby when she arrives!

I was completely satisfied and impressed with Michael's work from the beginning! His sense of sincerity and willingness to be accommodating was apparent at our first interview. His images impressed me with the candid,storytelling approach. He was so comforting as we approached the final preparations and on the day of our wedding, he made the pictures so relaxed. Not once during my wedding did I feel inconvenienced by taking pictures or uncomfortable! He helped make my wedding day exactly what I wanted it to be. When I saw the images, I was so excited and his work captured all parts of the day, the parts I wanted to remember, and the parts that I never saw! Michael Brook is extremely professional, friendly and a valuable part of your wedding experience! I HIGHLY recommend him and his work!

We found Michael Brook Photography while searching online and decided to contact him based on his amazing portfolio... It turned out to be one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. From our initial meeting up until the day he delivered our album, Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Before the big day he made a true effort to get to know us and our families and understand what we envisioned for our photography. He was even kind enough to meet with my father, a photographer himself, to ease any questions or concerns that he had! Michael listened intently and took notes during each meeting, which made a huge difference in the service he was able to deliver on our wedding day.

For a "Type-A" bride such as myself, I loved that Michael was so detailed, organized and highly responsive. Not once did I ever have to worry about him returning a call or email to answer my questions. Michael was more than willing to customize his packages to best suit our liking and budget. He stayed open to our ideas while maintaining his own creativity. We received countless compliments from our guests on how well Michael interacted with everyone. Looking back on all of our pictures, Michael was able to capture so many moments throughout the day without being invasive.

Michael met every deadline agreed to either on time or ahead of schedule. We were extremely pleased to peek at our email during the honeymoon to find highlight photos from the wedding within days!

We highly recommend Michael Brook for your wedding - you will not regret it!

Michael photographed my wedding in May 2009. He was great to work with. I was wary about feeling like the paparazzi was in my face (and actually didn't originally want to hire a photographer at all) but I barely even noticed Michael was there but looking at the pictures afterward, he captured everything! The pictures were amazing, a great mix of creativity and capturing important moments. He even got great pictures of our very young niece and nephew (who are usually very challenging to photograph). On top of that, I thought his prices were very reasonable. I definitely recommend Michael!

Michael is an amazing person to work with and it shows from the moment he meets you to the day you get the email with "your photos are available!" Michael has a way of finding all of the most heartfelt, genuine moments of a day and capturing them absolutely beautifully. Let's face it--every wedding photographer can line up a wedding party and take relatively beautiful pictures of everyone dressed in their best and grinning ear to ear. Michael is no exception; these all looked great. But the difference comes in the little things we noticed in the photos of moments that we had completely missed at the wedding--my mom wiping a tear from her eye, a groomsman tying his shoe before his march up the aisle, the look of sheer joy when we took that first bite of cake from each other's hands, the little girl twirling to her heart's content on the dance floor. These photos are the ones we love and the ones that will most help us really remember what our day was like.

My husband and I were not looking for the gooey, cheesy, overly romanticized shots that some weddings have, because we are not gooey, cheesy, overly romantic people. We are laid back, fun-loving, mostly sarcastic and always laughing people and worried that a "wedding photographer" would turn us into a Modern Bride cover. Not the case--Michael took the time to get to know us, and our pictures looked exactly like us and our style. (Funny faces and all.)

Some major pros: low light or alternative wedding locations (ours was in a hotel with no windows in the middle of February) are not a problem, the pictures turned out beautifully. Michael took the time to really get to know us before the wedding--by listening to us, not just talking to us--so that by the time wedding day rolled around, he knew exactly the type of wedding we had planned and exactly what we were looking for in our photos. He never tried to make us look like something we weren't or create artificial "moments", but just focused on capturing the beauty (and craziness, and excitement, and everything else) of the day that was already there. The results were perfect.

We had a great time getting to know him throughout the wedding planning process, and we were kind of wishing he would stay for the end of the reception after the photos were over, just to hang out! Five stars from us, no question.

Michael Brook did a fantastic job with the photography at my wedding. We were looking for a reasonably priced photographer where we could own the digital rights, and had almost no sense of what "style" of photography we were looking for. From our very first meeting, Michael was very easy to work with and made the whole process as relaxing as possible for us. During the wedding, Michael blended into the background during the ceremony and reception and provided calm reassurance in gathering the family for portraits. We ended up with hundreds of great shots, and all for a price more reasonable than any other photographer we considered.

Michael was the best! He spent time really getting to know us and our personalities, and what we wanted to see in our wedding photos. He took extra care to learn about our families in order to make sure that everyone was represented. Our wedding was small and intimate and his photos really captured the spirit of the occasion.
