Having Michelle Johnson Photography capture our special day (and our engagement photos) was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding! She captured our day perfectly, and kept everything light and fun throughout the afternoon.

Michelle's ability to make everyone look natural and comfortable in front of the camera is TOP NOTCH. My husband is not a huge fan of taking photos, and he loved working with Michelle and her team.

Additionally, we used Michelle Johnson Photography for our old-fashioned photo booth, and our guests had a great time with it! They gave each guest a copy of their photo strip (which made a great favor), and gave us an album and a digital copy of all of the pics at the end of the event.

We will use Michelle Johnson Photography for all of our family photo needs. I wouldn't trust anyone else to capture these special moments!

For our wedding, the vendor we worked with the most, and for the longest period of time, was our photographer. Because of this, we are so very happy we chose Michelle Johnson as our photographer because we got to spend all that time with such a hard-working and caring professional. She showed her level of dedication and care for her job, and the couples she works with, right away. As the wedding day came closer, Michelle was integral in helping us plan the timeline of the day. On the day of our wedding, Michelle was an absolute professional. She worked so well with her team and the videographer to ensure we stayed on time without sacrificing any shots. She kept us on schedule and directed us and the wedding party so perfectly. We got the full 1800 (yes, 1800) photos from the wedding day and we were just so ecstatic! My husband and I were so amazed by the quality of the photos, we couldn’t believe they were actually ours as they look like something from a magazine! Not only did we have so many photos to relive that day and treasure always, but the photos were just so beautiful and her eye is just phenomenal. We chose her in the beginning because her work was just so beautiful and exactly what we envisioned for our wedding photos. And she absolutely, 100% (and then some) delivered! We were so happy with our photos, we could not have been more thankful to her! She gave us our dream photos, and thus the best memories ever of a magical day that goes all too fast. Michelle was more than our photographer. She was our guidance, our therapist, our planner, our friend. I have so much love for this woman and infinite gratitude for her hard work, generosity, and kindness. I would recommend Michelle Johnson Photography to anyone and everyone! If you couldn’t already tell from this review – you will NOT be disappointed! I would give Michelle Johnson Photography 10 stars if I could!

Michelle was absolutely amazing! We were planning the wedding from out of state which can bring challenges, but Michelle was so warm that it felt like we had known her forever! She made things very comfortable on our wedding day, and made picture taking fun! She was also great with my large family, making sure we got all the shots we needed quickly and efficiently. She had really creative ideas, and we loved every single one of our pictures. Very reasonable pricing, and owning all the digital images has been fantastic. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding!

Michelle is just the greatest photographer and we loved her!! First, I was from out of state and trying to schedule and plan everything and she was so sweet and accommodating. I also wanted to take pictures before my wedding, Pre-wedding romantics, and she hadn't done something like that before and just ROCKED it!! She took pictures of my fiancé (at the time) and I at the beach and brought her husband and daughter so I had a million pictures that are just amazing. Then she edited those and got all those back to me before my wedding the following week. At the wedding her and her daughter came and both photographed the big day so I had the most amazing pictures. She was so cute and nice and her daughter was so nice as well. She also had a surprise for me at the end of my wedding day and gave me a bunch of SUPER cute polaroids of my pictures at the beach and from my big day! She went above and beyond! I felt like we were best friends by the end of it all. I absolutely loved them and am recommending them to all my friends who are getting married in Southern California.

Michelle and Mark absolutely made our wedding day! MJP was referred to me by our wedding Coordinator Toni, and I am forever grateful to her. Michelle is an absolute dream to work with. She is professional and very easy to deal with on the business side. Her process is smooth and well thought out - she's quite simply a pro. And when it comes to the photos, there's nothing else to say other than WOW! Michelle and Mark captured moments on the day of our wedding that will live in our hearts forever. They totally understood us and enhanced the entire experience. If you have the chance to work with this stellar team, run, don't walk!

If you are searching for a photographer, look no further because Michelle Johnson Photography is it. We had the pleasure of having Michelle and Mark capture our wedding and are grateful to have found photographers for all of life’s special occasions. They’re also two of the nicest people you’ll ever come across.

From the very first meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Michelle and Mark are fun and energetic, down to earth, kind, and professional. They took the time to really get to know us, to collaborate with us, and they had a genuine vested interest in making sure our concerns were addressed and we got all of the photos we wanted. After our initial meeting and engagement session, we knew photography was going to be the least of our worries on our special day.

We were so impressed with their ability to blend into the day, their efficiency to keep things on track, and ability to keep family/wedding party engaged. They interact so well with all of the other vendors, coordinators, and guests. To this day we get compliments not only on how amazing our wedding photos turned out but on how funny and warm-hearted our wedding photographers were.

Michelle and Mark’s talent is self-evident in the work they produce. They have an impeccable eye for capturing details and moments that are otherwise lost in the whirlwind of the day. They created many, many priceless memories to cherish and share. We are beyond pleased with the quality of all of the photographs.

Myles (their son who is just as fun, kind, and professional) manages the retro photo booth, with props, which was an absolute hit with all of our guests.

After all is said and done, what’s really left are the photographs to look back on and Michelle Johnson Photography exceeded all expectations we had for capturing our wedding day. We highly recommend the extraordinary MJP team to anyone and everyone looking for professional photographers.

I was recommended to Michelle by my coordinator Jackie Murphy of Weddings with Insight. By the end of our first meeting with Michelle, I knew that I wanted her to be our wedding photographer. I talked with Michelle for 2 hours which is quite long for a vendor interview, but it was GREAT! Michelle is so professional, yet warm and friendly. She responds quickly to texts and emails with any questions I had for her. What's great about this photography company is that it's a family business. Her husband Mark is her partner in crime, as well as her daughter (who I hear takes amazing photos); and I can't forget about her son who handles their photobooth for events. Michelle really does have an amazing team and family. Because of the tight budget I was on and the special recommendation from Jackie, Michelle contracted an amazing offer we could not refuse. It was everything I was looking for including engagement photos in The Bay with no travel fee charge. All I had to cover for them was flight and travel & food expenses around the city. It was a great deal I could not refuse.

The engagement shoot in San Francisco was so much fun! Michelle has this youthful energy that really comes out in her photos. At one point, we were shooting on Lombard Street, where the proposal happened, and Michelle gets into the plant and tree area and starts to shoot with her camera. It's so fun and refreshing to see a photographer in their element just shooting away and having a good time. It's really obvious that Michelle loves what she does. We all had an amazing photo shoot and it really came out in our photos.

It was such a pleasure to work with Michelle Johnson Photography. She even had our proofs ready just as we were settling in after our honeymoon. I couldn't have asked for a better photography company.

Michelle and Mark were fabulous from the first contact to ordering our albums and prints. They made our day worry free especially considering Michelle was the person who picked up on the timing of our outdoor ceremony and letting me know we needed to change the time otherwise we would be in the dark. They made everyone feel very comfortable and let you know they were there when they needed to but otherwise took pictures while we enjoyed the party. By the end of our day they became friends instead of just our photographers.
