Are you going to still "LOVE" your wedding photographers???

When you see your wedding images...

Brides call us "The Best of the Best". After photographing many weddings in the past decade in all sorts of conditions, experience is the difference that will make your wedding day be a stress-free and wonderful memory..

The goal in our qaint little studio located in downtown Cary isn't to try to photograph every wedding possible. Instead, we only look for 35-45 weddings each year so that we can give you the upmost and highest level of customer service. Marcy and I are with you on your wedding day so that when you are ready to design your flushmount album we already know you as family.

Two things we learned from our past brides:

1. We want you to enjoy your cocktail hour. Our intense planning meeting about a month before your wedding day is my promise to you that we will photograph the family images you want as well as the romantic images of you and your fiance and still have time to be with your guests during the cocktail hour. Most of our clients only need 30 minutes after the ceremony to wrap up family formals if proper planning is done.

2. Can you make me look thinner? Absolutely!! That's where skill and experience comes into play. We work with all of our clients to use creative lighting in a manner to thin out your face and waistline while creating all the most beautiful detail in your wedding gown.

Want to hear more? Pick up the phone and call during to day/night to schedule a visit to our studio. We want to hear what you have in plan for your wedding day!!

Michael's Memories were amazing! They were so easy to work with and very accommodating to all of our needs. Some of our family members had mobility issues and Michael was very flexible and willing to take the pictures in whatever way would be comfortable to them. He listened to all of our suggestions and wants when it came to the type of pictures and never made us feel like we were taking pictures that didn't match our personality and style. We loved our engagement pictures with them and can't wait to see the wedding photos!

Michael was extremely easy to work with and walked us through the entire process. He was patient with all my numerous questions and helped us plan to get the most important pictures quickly on our wedding day. He also made the engagement shoot a lot of fun and helped us get comfortable with the camera.

On our big day, I barely noticed that Michael and Marci were there. Again, they were patient with the gathering of the family members, last-minute changes in the order, etc. The results were amazing, I couldn't be happier with my pictures and the albulm. Thanks again for being a part of our very special day.

Michaels' Memories was a joy to work with for my engagement and wedding photos. Michael met with me beforehand to discuss what kinds of photos and where I would like to have the photos taken. Michael really made me feel comfortable and like he would honor every one of my wishes. He also was open to doing the different kinds of shots and venues that I wanted to do—even though there were several places I wanted to go and a variety of shots I wanted taken. During the engagement session Michael made us feel so special and important. He gently guided us into positions and poses that would lead to wonderful photographs and truly capture who we were. He was also very patient with us as we moved locations and changed outfits. I never once felt like he was on a time crunch or needed to wrap things up. When the pictures came back I was absolutely delighted. Michael had captured every type of shot—the fun, romantic, and whimsical that I had wanted. Each picture was carefully taken and beautiful.

After having such a positive experience for my engagement session I didn't have to think twice about having Michael shoot my wedding photos! On the day of the wedding his wife came in to do the session with my bridesmaids and me, while Michael did the photos with the groom and groomsmen. During the ceremony they were also stationed in different places to get different kinds of shots. Then after the ceremony during the cocktail hour we were able to do some indoor shots as well as outdoor shots. I enjoyed the fact that Michael wanted to have fun with the shots—doing some formal poses and some fun and unique poses. I love my pictures and wouldn't have changed anything! I cannot wait until I finally narrow down the pictures to make an album to see what that turns out like!

If you want a truly terrific photographer who will work with you and make sure you get the photos you want that are also beautiful I STRONGLY recommend that you choose Michael's Memories!

It was a pleasure having Michael and Marcy photograph our wedding day. The wedding pictures were the most beautiful pictures that I had every seen! (and I'm not photogenic) I could not be more happy with the pictures and how perfectly they captured every moment of our special day. They both do amazing work and paid attention to the very small details of the wedding and even happened to captured the personalities of our family and friends that were present that day. I have heard from other brides that the photographer missed capturing a particular family member or moment...Michael sits down with you about a month in advanced of the wedding to make sure they capture every picture you'd want. They were very professional, efficient and well organized. Michael's Memories truly does do amazing work (I can't stress amazing)!

i can't say enough great things about Michael. I was referred to him by a few friend in the Pasadena area who has used them for their weddings. I knew I wanted classic photos that would last a life time and that is exactly what we got.

Being a nervous bride, Michael made me feel very comfortable and relaxed and caught some amazing moments that I wish cherish forever. He was very quick with the family pictires that we took after the ceremony which I really appreciated--especially since we wanted everyone to get the reception and start celebrating!

My mom surprised us with a wedding book which turned out so beautiful. Michael did a beautiful job with that as well.

I cannot say enough great things about Michael. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants bright, beautiful, and classic pictures :)

The occasion was our daughter's wedding. Service: Excellent! Quality: Outstanding! Customer Service: Top-notch all the way. We were delighted with everything delivered and would recommend Michael and his wife wholeheartedly. It's always a nervous time waiting to see the final product, but Michael's work was delivered on time with excellent results and great follow-up, and the pictures were truly a delight. We're still talking about it! Great work!

Michael and Marcy did a wonderful job on our photos. They were extremely friendly and professional, from the engagement photos all the way through the wedding day. Michael really knows what makes a good shot and it has shown in all of our beautiful photos. I would recommend Michael's Memories to anyone in the Raleigh-Cary area looking for a photographer!

Michael was the very first wedding vendor we hired and he was an invaluable resource in helping us select many of our other vendors, as well. Michael takes beautiful photographs and worked with us to adjust the package for our wedding to include exactly what we wanted. Michael also worked with us in arranging a payment plan, which also gave us a discount off of the total price of our package. We had an engagement photo session one year before our wedding at Duke Gardens with some amazing photos and we were able to meet with Michael (conveniently located in downtown Cary) whenever we needed to discuss those must have photos for our wedding. Michael was also extremely prompt in responding to questions we had via email (often within an hour or two) and is a very easy going person to work with. He and Marcy make a wonderful team and complimented each other very well while we were taking bridal party photos before and after the ceremony. We can't think of any higher praise than to say that we will hire Michael for any professional photography needs we have, and to recommend him to anyone who wants truly beautiful photographs to remember their wedding!
