Michael has by far been one of the biggest blessings throughout our wedding planning process. Not only is he quick to respond to emails and very friendly, he is extremely talented and at such a reasonable cost. When looking for a wedding photographer I was looking for one that did not sacrifice quality for a lower cost, I also wanted one that would make us feel comfortable on our big day. After seeing some of Michael's work and then having over an hour conversation on the phone with him chatting about random things during our first convo, I knew he was our guy. We originally had planned on doing our engagement photoshoot in DC by the cherry blossoms, but sadly it rained and we had to reschedule. I was really bummed but Michael immediately offered other ideas for where we could have the shoot and sent me his next available dates. He then proceeded to tell us he would come to DC next year after the wedding to do a photoshoot of us in our tux and gown by the cherry blossoms free of charge! I was amazed and so excited, what photographer offers to drive 4 hours out of his way to do an extra shoot for his couples? After rescheduling our engagement shoot twice we finally met Michael at our venue which was around a 3.5 hour drive for him. He spent three hours with us there, made sure we got plenty of amazing shots (including the sunset), then drove all the way back home. He has such an artistic eye and is very creative, especially when the sun is setting. We got so many amazing shots that day - I received many compliments and people kept telling me "that photo looked like it was out of a fairytale!" The owner of our venue even commented on how amazing it was that he spent so much time with us. We have been so blessed to have found him, and we are so excited to have him shoot our wedding in two months! Trust me, if you are looking for a fun, creative, talented, reasonably priced photographer who loves his couples/work - you need to go with Michael.

Mike captured some amazing engagement photos for my fiance and me. He took us to the Blue Ridge Parkway and was a true visionary for finding fantastic sites for taking the photos. As we were driving to Chateau Morrisette to take some pictures in the cellar with the barrels and glasses of wine, he had the idea to stop along the side of the road to take photos in the grass. With the sun at the right angle, the light caused the grass to shine red, creating a surreal and beautiful setting for the picture. After going to Chateau Morrisette, we went to Mabry Mill to take another set of fun, beautiful pictures with the mill in the background. Mike knew the area well and was also able to time the light so we could get some great sunset shots on our way back to town.

While we were taking the photos, Mike demonstrated a keen and deep knowledge of the types of photos we would want to take. He walked us through a range of different poses that made the experience feel natural and fun. Our pictures look candid and captured us at our best. Our love for each other was clear, and that is the most important quality that Mike was able to capture.

Mike's professional attitude showed throughout the process. He showed up 5 minutes before the scheduled time and was willing to take us in his truck to facilitate the process. He was very clear and communicated his ideas so that we could shape the experience as desired. He was also patient with us as we waited for the right moments for our pictures. He then edited the photos almost immediately, so we were able to have the finished product in only a few days. It was a true pleasure to work with Mike for this engagement photo shoot, and I would highly recommend him to any couple.

I just finished reviewing the pictures from my October 1st Virginia mountain wedding and they are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Michael of Photographic Dreams did a fantastic job customizing his shots to focus on candids (my favorite!), and there are so many great moments and memories that he caught on film. The quality of the shots are top notch and the sharpness of the colors are outstanding, everything pops and looks so vibrant and gorgeous! Micheal is a very personable, talented photographer who was a breeze to work with and who truly wants to cater to your needs, making it a celebration to remember. I would definitely hire Photographic Dreams to cover any future event in the SW Virginia area :)

Mike did a great job at my wedding. He has a great eye and took great shots that I didn't even know he was taking most of the time. He also listened to exactly what I wanted. I've already recommend him to a friend.

Michael goes above and beyond on your wedding day. He is extremely responsive and caring. He truly immerses himself in your vision, your ideas and your day. He is personable and friendly and very affordable for such a high quality product. As a bridesmaid, I know that he makes sure to tie in the whole wedding party, when other photographers would focus on just the bride and groom. He is willing and able to take any shot you ask for. And, again, truly goes above and beyond on your special day. I'm so happy my sister chose him as her photographer for the most important day of her life. The pictures were perfect, elegant and stunning.
