We chose Michael to do our engagement photos and he was fantastic. We have so many amazing photos it's hard to choose which ones we want to print! He knew the areas very well and his artistry shows through each image. They're beautiful and unique and we couldn't be happier! He also got the photos back to us super quick which I very much appreciated.

Michael did such and amazing job with our photos, I still am in awe when I look at them. Our wedding and reception was at a tennis club and my biggest fear was that would be the center of every photograph. He was able to make it look like we were in a beautiful outdoor garden with no tennis courts in sight. Even the pictures that he took of us on the court are disguised and are beautiful! I cannot thank him enough!

Michael and his assistant were absolutely amazing! My wedding photos are beautiful and everything I had hoped for. They took the time and made sure to capture every moment of my wedding day. I had sent Michael a handful of ideas and pictures I wanted to replicate, and he made sure that all of them were done perfectly. The whole bridal party felt so comfortable with him and his assistant. We really enjoyed working with them both.

There is something magical about capturing a moment in time that represents a mile stone in ones life. Every girl dreams about the day in which a man will choose to love her for the rest of their life. I recently had my own prince charming decide that he wanted to share the rest of his life with me. Michael prepared with my fiance for a few weeks on how to get to the proposal site and became a paparazzi to ensure the surprise of the event. My fiance choose to propose at Disneyland which Michael had no qualms about. He spent the entire day secretly following us around and captured the moment of shock, joy and tears as I accepted and said yes to one of best moments of my life. The quality of the pictures and video of the entire event are memories that I can share with my family and friends. Quality is what you get with Michael. He is professional and incorporates what YOU want. I loved my engagement experience and pictures so much, I booked him for my wedding. He did my photo-shoot for my save the dates and they were AMAZING! I got to dress up as Cinderella and Beauty by a castle. If you want someone who actually cares about what you want and quality work, Michael is your photographer. There is nothing better than him.

Michael Lawrence Photography did an amazing job at my wedding. Michael is professional, confident and super friendly. I felt totally comfortable throughout the entire process. He is super responsive to your questions, and gets you prints in a timely manner. The best thing I liked about Michael was he was very willing to listen to your needs and what you want to see in your wedding. He will make sure his photographs fit your personality and style. I would recommend Michael Lawrence Photography to anyone in Southern California!!!

Michael isn't just a great, professional wedding photographer, he's an artist. We told him it was important to us to capture the emotional responses/reactions on everyone's face during the event. He did an amazing job! We get sooo many compliments on our pictures and people think we spent a lot more than we did. We had a pretty tight budget and he gave us GREAT value for our dollar. (I wish we could give more than five stars for value, honestly.) He obviously has a passion for excellence and a true love of his craft.

Michael was the perfect addition to our wedding. He was great with family and friends and very professional. I almost forgot that he was there. He took so many great pictures that everyone keeps complimenting on still today. Michael made sure that he got the important shots that captured that special moment. He was more than a photographer that day he was a friend, and part of our wedding. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t think of using anyone else as our photographer. Thank you again Michael.

Michael, You were a joy to work with. You sat down with Jon and I long before our wedding to get a feel for us together as a couple, and made yourself 100% available as we continued to make little changes to our wedding day up to the actual day. I love how you spent the time to analyze the types of photography we like and the mood we were looking for in our wedding photos. On our wedding day, you were early and somehow were EVERYWHERE, taking the photos of the bridal party and dressing room scenes and still got a ton of amazing groom and groomsmen photographs. The remainder of the night, you captured the best intimate moments between Jon and me, and the happy moments with family and friends. We actually still haven't finished putting our wedding album together (nearly a year later) because there isn't enough room in the photo album for all the amazing pictures you took. Jon and I sincerely appreciate how you were never in the way throughout the night, your professionalism and flexibility with my HUGE family were top notch, and I will never forget that you stayed at least a couple hours past the end of your contract just because the photo opportunities outside under the resort's night lights were so amazing that you couldn't resist taking some more photos with us as long as we could keep our eyes open. Thank you for going above and beyond what we expected. I can't wait to give you a ring when we start growing our family.

Always,
Bethany and Jon Peterson
