Great personality when you first meet him. Has a very nice way of show casing your online photos which appears to be making your album simple when the times came. Pricing is very fair as well. Day of our wedding, was on time and very positive.
Negatives: (Where things mattered the most)
Slow response time to emails or returning calls prior to our affair.
Very slow in providing final return of albums. Several emails and messages requesting updates and blame placed on company. I hired you, not them.
Comes off slightly overconceeded and didn't place as the important people I felt in communications.
He appears to have a love for the art of photography but more inline with red carpet galas then personal events

A photographer is one of the most important vendors you choose for your wedding and I'm so happy we booked MTC. Manny does his best to learn about his clients. He makes you feel welcomed, he's friendly and professional. From our first meeting with him we knew he was the perfect choice. He takes amazing photos, he's creative and brings around a feel good vibe. We've received so many nice words from our wedding guest about him and his team as well, saying they know the photographers are there but you could not tell. I'm so excited to see our finished photos. Thank you Manny for making our wedding day an amazing one !!!!!

MTC photography did an amazing job for my wedding. The owner Manny has a terrific personality which is a must when shooting hundreds of photos. He was able to put everyone at ease especially my 9 year old daughter who hates taking any pictures at all. He also used his very creative mind to capture some beautiful sunset shots of us. We were very impressed with his quality of work. His ideas were terrific and we would highly recommend him to others!!

Manny from MTC Photography is hands down the most amazing photographer I have ever met!!! He has so much energy and has this creative eye and can foresee these amazing shots. We hired him to do both our engagement shoot and our wedding and the photos are breathtaking. Manny was able to give me such a boost of confidence and it made me feel like a beauty queen. And the entire time he is so funny, we literally had a blast hanging out with him. But on top of being fun Manny has the ability to get serious and get that timeless shot of you in your dress.....that crucial moment of anticipation at your first look....and that fairytale moment you share with your spouse out in the middle of the dance floor for your first dance. I also loved that throughout the night Manny was sharing photos of our special day on facebook and the amount of love and support we got from our facebook family and friends was so overwhelming!!! Its been a little over a month since my special day and Manny is still sharing photos and tagging me on instagram in a shot and with every photo I see it brings back such amazing memories of that day. Manny's level of professionalism and his clear talent for capturing amazing shots made him such an easy choice for us. Thank you Manny!!!!

Manny was amazing! Myself and my husband hired Manny for our wedding, which included an engagement shoot. We realized from the first day we met with him that he wasn't like other photographers. He had a way of taking pictures to bring out the best in everyone. He makes you feel like you are the only ones that matter when he's working. We have had nothing but compliment after compliment from our engagement pictures and we knew we made the right choice for him to shoot the wedding. All of our pictures from the wedding were outstanding. And the turn around time to get them from him was incredibly fast. Manny is a great guy and everyone at the wedding loved him. He doesn't "bother" you with all the posed pictures very much, which is what we liked. He has a lot of energy and gave us so many amazing memories to remember our wedding by.

When planning our wedding, our photographer was one of the most important vendors on our list. My (now husband) and I researched at least 25 photographers, and although many of them had great examples of their work, none of them matched the complete package we found with Manny. Not only was he very fair in his price and packages, but what really sold us was his personality. We wanted someone we felt comfortable with throughout the entire planning process, yet Manny quickly began to feel more like a friend and then a family member by the time the wedding came around. Since our wedding, we have received endless compliments about Manny; how he blended in with everyone, how overall nice he is, but once they saw his pictures.... we have not stopped hearing how incredible his work is. My husband and I are in awe with the pictures and we will have such breathtaking memories to cherish the rest of our lives. We could not be more grateful for MTC Photography for capturing our day even more beautifully than we could have imagined. If even one person hires him based off of this review, I hope that will help to show how thankful we are.

We loved Manny and MTC Photography!! Manny and his second photographer Paul were extremely professional, friendly, and fun wedding photographers. Manny met us at our wedding venue a week before our wedding so he could get to know the space and have a plan in his head about how and where he would take pictures during our outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. Manny was obviously excited about the wedding which made us even more excited about it, knowing he would take awesome photos. After taking our first look and pre-ceremony photos with our bridal party and families, Manny asked us what else we wanted photos of. He wanted us to be happy with our photos which was of course so important to us. Throughout the wedding Manny was posting pictures to social media using our hashtag so they were ready for us to see that very night. Many of our guests have told us how much they liked our photographers and how professional they thought they were! It was only 2-3 weeks after the wedding that Manny sent us a link to see all of our photos online. And they are BEAUTIFUL!!! I highly highly recommend MTC for any event you want to remember with beautiful photos!

I cannot thank Manny enough for his great photography skills and professionalism on our wedding day! We knew from the very beginning that we wanted to use Manny for our wedding! We had Manny take our engagement photos as well, and he made us a poster for our wedding for our guests when they walked into our venue. Manny was great coordinating with our venue and DJ. He is very professional in his work and he also likes to have fun. The pictures that he took on our wedding are unbelievable and I cannot thank him enough for them. He would post "teasers" so myself and my guests would see them before all of the photos were finished and I would get comments on how everyone loved the pictures that he took. I haven't stopped looking at them! Thank you as well to Chad, who took awesome pictures and was very professional. Manny does a phenomenal job and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a photographer! Thank you again!! Much love, Alanna & John

While in search for a photographer for our wedding, we admired photos from a few of our friends' weddings. Each was personal to their personality as a couple. We were excited to learn that their weddings were all photographed by the same photographer - Manny from MTC Photography!

I was also excited to learn that Manny was from my home state of NJ and was willing to travel to our venue located on LI. From the moment we first spoke, we knew Manny was the right fit for us. Manny is communicative, professional, artistic, funny, genuine, and understanding. He also recommended a fabulous team of videographers that added to our A-Team!

His process allowed us piece of mind and confidence. Manny and his team arrived early to our location and led the process, capturing all of the best moments and minimizing any distractions.

My guests followed our hashtag and received exciting glimpses into our day thanks to Manny's updates on site and as soon as the day after. He quickly blended with our family and friends.

We had the Best. Day. Ever. and having Manny as his team capture all of those special moments is absolutely priceless. They will be our go to team for all of our future celebrations.

Thank you Manny and Glenn for your genuineness, professionalism, and awesomeness!
