Michael Temchine Photography has captured the beauty and emotion of marriage celebrations in the Mid-Atlantic region for over a decade. My unobtrusive approach to photographing a wedding stems from my desire to let the couple and their guests tell the story of their wedding in their own way. After months of planning, your wedding is not just about who attended - it is about what your wedding feels like - and I look for the little moments that define your special day, even if it goes by in a blur.

Michael Temchine Photography has been recognized for excellence by FOTOWEEK DC, WPJA.com, and ISPWP.com, and my work appears frequently in the Washington Post, New York Times, as well as many other publications. Read less

We used Michael for my son's wedding this past Sunday. He handled a large family crowd very professionally, making sure that every combination that we wanted was photographed. But we were blown away when we saw the first set of pictures. He made every action situation look so natural, like he wasn't even there. we could not be more pleased, and will definitely use him for future weddings (have 3 more sons) if the locale allows.

Michael not only did our son's wedding, he did our daughter's wedding this past June. He did a magnificent job and so many people have commented on the tender moments he captured and the excitement of the dancing. He seemed to be everywhere and got every great moment. We were willing to spend more on a photojournalist because we were more interested in action than in stills. We were so delighted with Michael's work that we didn't even both looking for another photographer for our next wedding. It unquestionably had to be him. This is an investment in memories and it pays to use the very best. We're glad we did.

Michael did a fabulous job capturing the essence of my son's wedding. He really got "the shots" needed to tell "the story" of love capturing the emotion of all involved. The difficulty of managing three families, not two, along with the intricacies of an orthodox wedding & the demands of many different personalities managed not to phase Michael as he did an outstanding, artistic job with photos we will treasure!

Michael was a wonderfully talented photographer! Our photos were beautiful and looked very professional.

In particular, Michael was extremely skilled at photographing the action shots! Michael got some amazing angles and took some incredible pictures at our bedekin (segment of an Orthodox Jewish wedding in which the groom is joyously escorted in by his friends and family to great the bride) and during our dancing celebration! Everyone who looks at our pictures is amazed at how perfectly timed the photos are in capturing some truly important and sentimental moments. Thanks to Michael, my new husband and I have once-in-a-lifetime photographs of some of the best moments of our life!

My husband and I had a very large wedding party and an even larger amount of family members that needed to be in our family portraits. I know that dealing with large groups is very challenging and extremely time consuming, but I do wish that Michael had taken a bit more time in arranging our friends and family in our portraits in order to better capture everyone involved.

Also, since our wedding was very large, close to 550 people, and there were only 2 photographers at our wedding, it was difficult for them to capture moments that involved 550 people and about 200 very close family members and friends. I wish Michael had at least one additional photographer with him so that more moments could have been captured.

Overall Michael did a very wonderful job at dealing with the pressures and demands of a tremendous wedding. My husband and I have over 1,000 beautiful and incredible photos that we cannot wait to get framed. I would gladly recommend Michael to anyone that asked!

Michael is an excellent photographer who really captures the most amazing and intimate moments of a wedding. He is best at capturing the candid moments, and has a way of catching them without even knowing he was there. When my husband and I were scrolling through the photos, we were amazed with the photojournalism. He captured some of the best dancing photos we have seen, the intimate moments of our chuppah, and the array of emotions experienced that day. If you want a photographer who doesn't just takes the set up photos, but really captures the whole day, I highly recommend Michael Temchine.

We also really loved that within a week he sent us some photo highlights and within just a few weeks had over 1000 photos for us to review and pick from. Many times it takes forever to get photos back, but with Michael we got to re-live our wedding soon after our big day.

Additionally, he has a lot of experience with Orthodox Jewish weddings and knows exactly what to capture and where to stand to get the best shots. From the badekkin, to the tisch, to the chuppah and dancing, he really captured the highlights of our day.

My only critique is that I wish he spent a bit more time reviewing the family portraits. In a lot of them we were squinting or the spacing was a bit awkward. Sometimes one person wasn't looking or someone wasn't smiling. In fairness, when there are a lot of family members to get through it can be hard to spend time looking over the photos before moving on. Despite wishing we had some better family portraits, what we really wanted to hold on to were the emotions, intimate moments, and joy experienced that day. And every time we look at our wedding photos we experience just that all over again.

Michael was a wonderful addition to -- and recorder of -- our wedding. Recommended to us by a friend, Michael responded quickly to my initial inquiry about availability, etc., and was willing to work with what we wanted for our wedding. At the event itself, he showed up promptly, and then disappeared in just the way a talented and professional photographer should: always watching, always capturing the decisive moments, but without making his presence known. He also helped set a natural, casual atmosphere for more formal portraits of us, our family and friends. The result is a collection of stunning images, both black and white and color, that we treasure. The print quality is terrific, and the private, online gallery he creates for his clients is efficient and easy to use. The range of details he recorded, his deft eye for focus and composition, and his true talent for portraits of people at whatever age has provided us with a handsome collection of photographs that have already become a family heirloom. Thank you, Michael, for helping make our special day that much more memorable!

Michael beautifully captured the spirit of our wedding day with amazing shots! He was able to capture the emotions of our guests and the beauty of our special day. His calm demeanor also helped with the flow of the more formal shots and made him seem invisible during the candid shots (where he was found literally lying on the floor to get great angles!). He was also quick to send us our pictures soon after our wedding and was very responsive when it came to creating our album. He was flexible with the creative spin we wanted for our album, making a final product that was beautiful and unique to us. Myself and my 2 married siblings used his services for our weddings. We would highly recommend him!!!!

I couldn't possibly have asked for anything more from my time with Michael. The pictures capture every emotion I had and I get to relive them constantly :) The angles he got were INSANE! There are pictures that I don't even know HOW he got. Just as important as the pictures is how he made me feel as a bride. I was freaking out, shaking, nervous...and he made me feel so safe and secure. He was clear and calm and I am so grateful he was there with us on our day. Thank you! I would recommend him to anyone! A simply perfect experience.

We recently used Michael Temchine for our wedding, and we would recommend him to any other couples looking for a wedding photographer. He arrived early to the wedding and worked tirelessly the entire afternoon and evening (he was going straight for about 9 hours).

Michael took the requisite combinations of posed family photos, and did a quality job of it, but it was clear that his passion and his specialty is in capturing great natural shots. By the end of the ceremony, his knees were grass-stained from kneeling to find the perfect angle – his shots ranged from beautifully artistic (a closeup of my hands putting the ring on the groom’s finger) to strongly emotional (my grandmother crying as she hugged me afterwards).

He also shone at capturing pictures of the festivities afterwards. It was great to see the shots of all the things we had never even noticed going on. His photo of two of our college friends dancing goofily with an eight year old guest was just perfect.
He was always ready to take whatever photos we asked him to. He has quite a fast turnaround time – he had a highlights slideshow (about 70 pictures) up on his website a week after the wedding, and the rest of the 1000+ photos up a few days later.

We both highly recommend him.
