Although the grooms parents hired Michael, I wanted to say he was so fabulous to work with. In honesty, I have not seen the pictures of the wedding-so I cannot speak about that. However, he was professional, kind, easy to work with. He responded to all emails and took tons of pictures. Judging from Alexis and Jason's engagement photos which he shot, I am sure that the wedding pictures will by terrific.

Mike is talented, professional, and cool. We liked him instantly and loved his photos. He has a terrific sense of color and captured the details of our wedding beautifully. He was calm yet managed to get every photo we asked for, and he provided just the right amount of direction to ensure beautiful shots. In the end, he gave us DVDs of our photos to use as we please. I recommend Mike wholeheartedly.

I would recommend Michael Gross Photography to any couple. Above all, the photography is amazing. The album layouts he created for us are also excellent, and he had no issue going back and forth multiple times with edits to get it exactly how I wanted. Options for physical albums are great too. He is also a nice, easy-going guy - very important as the photographer is by your side all day on your big day. I'm very happy we didn't go with a big wedding photography company.

We had 11 hours of coverage, resulting in over 1300 photos. One thing I would tell other brides is that this much time is probably not necessary. 9/10 hours would have still yielded tons of images we loved at a slightly reduced rate. And cutting down 1300 to 200 or so for an album is a daunting task, particularly with Michael Gross...there were so many shots we loved!

Overall, he was one of the best vendors we had that day!

Mike was everything we were looking for in a photographer and the best part is that he such a great guy. We wanted someone professional, discreet, talented, responsive and fun to work with, and that's exactly what we got. We had narrowed it down to a few photographers that had similar style to Mike's, but after meeting everyone in person, it was a hands down no-brainer to choose him. We loved his photojournalistic style and easy-going personality. He even came to scope out the venue and help us pick out lighting to make sure our photos would turn out great. He and his assistant did a fantastic job capturing the essence of our wedding and they did it with ninja-like stealth. He is very speedy but doesn't make you feel rushed. He is mindful of time without sacrificing on being spontaneous and capturing great moments and backgrounds that you wouldn't even notice! From small details to portraits to candids of family and friends, his photographs came out great. We especially loved the shots he got of us and our bridal party in city landscape. He was flexible and when needed, he was confident and able to direct large crowds without being overbearing. We received our photo files about a month after our wedding and they look like they could be out of a magazine! His pricing was extremely competitive and if you are even considering him, you should look no further! We loved working with him and he even captured my sister's wedding too :)

My husband and I LOVED Mike! Before even meeting with him, we could see how talented he was from his photos. My husband doesn't like photos that look completely altered, and we really liked how Mike has a photo journalistic style. He really captures the essence of the event and people that he's shooting.

From the initial meeting, we could tell Mike was a laid-back, and yet VERY professional photographer. He was easy to talk to and communicate with. He has a smart phone so almost all of my e-mails were answered IMMEDIATELY. Our venue was out in Jersey and even though Mike lives in Brooklyn and doesn't have a car, he took a trip out there to scout for places for us to take photos on the wedding day. Unfortunately, it rained, but Mike brought lots of lights so that we would have wonderful indoor photos.

I can't remember the name of his assistant photographer, but I really liked him, too! :)

Mike has all the talent of a professional photographer, but none of the attitude. Highly recommend!

After all of the meetings and spreadsheets and tastings and fittings and mass mailings, one of the best days of your life has come and gone, and you are left only with your memories and your photographs. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Michael Gross gave me the best possible wedding photographs. My wedding looks like it could be featured in Vogue. He captured every moment beautifully and artistically. He captured moments that I didn�t even know existed. From start to finish, he was an absolute pleasure to work with, he made us feel beautiful and comfortable, and the finished product is something I will treasure forever.

Michael and his amazing assistant shot my wedding and I am still obsessed looking at the pictures over a year later. I feel like it was the prettiest day of my life and I think I have Michael to thank for that ... The atmosphere, food, and of course all the people were captured in such a unique way. I received so many compliments on the photos.

GREAT value for the money - but no one will ever know you didn't pay a fortune - you will not be disappointed.

We met with Michael at Cafe Mogador and were instantly sold. He is professional but also really, really friendly and personable. We met with a couple other photographers who were either rigid and slightly rude or who were awkward and a little off-putting. I realize that a photographer should be judged by his or her work and not by personality, but when it came to our wedding personality mattered. We couldn't help but imagine Uncle Bob getting snapped at by a rude camera-wielding stress case. And, in any case, we loved Michael's work. The pictures are really amazing and truly captured the spirit of the day. Looking through them is like watching a great movie about our wedding. Michael and his assistant were always there for a shot and never got in the way. Also, his pricing is extremely competitive. We would absolutely recommend him!

When searching for a photographer for our wedding this past summer, a friend of my husband's recommended Michael Gross. After our initial meeting with him, I knew he would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. Michael was incredibly professional yet very friendly, personable and willing to do whatever we were looking for. He was very punctional and stayed the entire night at our reception. We got married in NYC and we loved the more candid shots taken on the streets of Manhattan. The photos he took turned out beautiful and we got several compliments from our family and friends! Michael is incredibly talented and takes amazing photos. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
