I wish I could leave 10 stars for each!

Miguel is one of those photographers that you dream about! He was at the site early, scoping out fun spots to shoot. Then, 20 minutes into shooting it starts raining. He found us an even more beautiful venue to explore one block away inside. Miguel obviously has an amazing intution for shooting couples. Even though we had just met him, he made us feel very comfortable and relaxed.
Any time I emailed him he got right back to me. I would almost get engaged again just to have the fun experience of Miguel and his magical camera!
Less than a week later, he emailed a link to the photos and they are beautiful!

Miguel was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was very sensitive and considerate of our specific needs and preferences. As a mature couple, our objective was to create a memorable celebration for our family and friends without the trappings and fussiness of traditional weddings. Miguel understood that sensibility and captured it in wonderfully natural shots of us and our guests as we enjoyed the ceremony and reception.

Miguel has a unique gift of observation that allowed him to spot and record a spectrum of interesting, beautiful, funny, and touching moments throughout the ceremony and reception. The real evidence of this artistry was the final product: a clever and distinctive arrangement of our chosen images in the beautiful leather-bound album. Bill and I would recommend Miguel for couples demanding an original and personal approach to memorializing their event.

Miguel was great to work with! Easy going yet extremely professional. My fiance and I communicated with Miguel frequently before and after our wedding. He was always available to answer questions and brainstorm ideas. We were amazed at the amount of great shots we got from our Engagement and Wedding photos. Hands down the BEST vendor at our wedding!

Miguel is a great photographer. I live in Michigan but my wedding venue was San Diego so it was a blessing that I found him. He kept in touch and replied to my emails very punctually (this was very important to me since I was planning long distance). He covers the whole wedding day for a very reasonable price. He is very professional. He was always available for suggestions but he never took away from anything we wanted so it was a perfect balance of both. He is great for both portraits and more photojournalistic/action shots. We didn't know how to pick a photographer but he made it very easy by actually doing an engagement photo session with us for free. He also have us a professional CD with all photos from the sessions plus a slide show of the same that we could share with our families and guests. The engagement session gave us an opportunity to meet him and get a feel for his personality and quality of work. If anyone is looking for a photographer for any event I definitely recommend Miguel Mayo. He is professional, helpful, friendly and definitely worth your money :)
