Michael Sparks Keegan - Photographer
I met Michael and Laura at a Boston Bridal Expo and they made a lasting impression on me that we had to have them. Their photo albums were fantastic, the quality of the photos were amazing, and just speaking with them, I knew they would be a great fit for us. Our engagement session was so much fun and they were able to think of some really creative shots in a venue (a CrossFit gym!) that they're not used to photographing in and the pictures came out amazing! We were able to use them as table numbers at our reception. I am so glad we spent the extra money to have them all day, it was worth every penny. Laura was an amazing coordinator and made sure we stayed on time and they were able to capture many amazing moments! The whole wedding party enjoyed working with them and during the ceremony and reception, you would not have even know there were photographers around. We also hired them to take pictures at our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner and they gave us a very fair price and it's nice being able to have those moments saved! I can't wait to see what Laura comes up with for our wedding album design!
They were fun to work with & made taking pictures easy.
Michael and Laura are both absolutely amazing! They really took the time to get to know us as a couple before the wedding, especially at our engagement shoot. It helped us feel comfortable taking pictures and get us excited for the wedding photography. We didn't have a videographer, so it was important for us to capture every moment. Michael and Laura did just that! We are so happy with the photos and look forward to working with them again in the future. We would recommend them to any bride and groom!
When we met with Michael and Laura, we knew we had to have them photograph our wedding. They are such a fantastic couple and work so well as a team. They were so easy to work with and our wedding day went off without a hitch, thanks mostly to them. They not only took amazing photographs, but were great organizers and basically led the way to make our day as easy and carefree as possible. They took fun pictures of our wedding party along with traditional ones and during the wedding pulled members of both of our families outside to take family portratis of them, which I think was a great touch. They are a bit pricey, but they were worth every penny we paid!!!!
Hands down, Michael is the BEST. No matter what my budget was, I would have found a way to have him work with us. He and his wife/assistant, Laura, are the most amazing team. Creative, flexible, funny, sincere, dedicated, and passionate about what they do. Every photo Michael takes shines. We couldn't imagine having had anyone else photograph our wedding day!!!
Laura and Michael were incredible all throughout our wedding planning and day. They did our engagement session and it came out beautifully. Laura was willing to help take pictures with guests cameras as well as doting on the bridal party to help tie bows or pour water. They couldn't be nicer people. I would recommend them to everyone.
My husband and I got married on October 2nd, 2010 at Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston, MA and Michael Sparks Keegan was our photographer. I met Michael and his wife Laura at a Bridal Expo in Boston, and out of the many photography booths there, Michael's impressed me the most. His booth was professional, the albums and pictures he had on display were incredible.. Within a week, we had booked them! My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about Michael Sparks Keegan Photography. His work is absolutely stunning and we could not have made a better decision when choosing our engagement and wedding photographer. Michael works with his wife Laura they and they are both personable, professional, friendly, funny and very easy to communicate and work with. They truly care about you being happy with the finished product, and are willing to go above and beyond for that special shot.
Michael and Laura are the best in the business. Professional, warm, creative and the most amazing photographers. I couldn't have asked for more. First the photographs were the all that I could have dreamed for. They were the perfect combination of candids, moments captured in such an artistic way and the family photos my Mom really wanted but they were so real and fun. Secondly, things went wrong...my brother's button came off. Somehow Laura was there sewing one on in the back of the church while Michael was shooting away. I had a wedding planner but they did more than she did. They even got my husband Jeff to smile and laugh in the photos - not easy. They delivered. In addition all of the guests loved them and couldn't stop raving about how available and friendly they were. Michael even fixed my aunts camera for her. As promised, I got my proof book and high res files 2 weeks after my wedding delivered to me in a beautiful package. It was so hard to choose my images for my album but Laura helped me and created the most fabulous album. My sister is so jealous. She was married 6 months before me and still doesn't have her album. You are so lucky to get them if you can.
We were so lucky to book Michael on his last available Sat. in May. The forecast was not looking good all day and they were so flexible throughout the entire event. We had to run out in spurts to get the images I wanted. There they were clicking away umbrellas and all. It could have ruined my wedding day, instead it was the best part. They were everywhere, got shots of everyone, yet they were completely unobtrusive. You can't overestimate the significance of having great photographs of your wedding. We were running around and couldn't see everything. We able to relax later and reminisce, and see all that we never saw. I wouldn't want to risk losing that moment by hiring someone with less talent, experience, dedication or creative ability.
We love working with Michael and Laura! They are so talented and wonderful with the brides and their families. We also know we are sure to get beautiful pictures for our site!
Michael is truly an amazing photographer. I am always pleased when I find that a client is working with Michael Sparks Keegan Photography. He and his wife Laura are a joy to collaborate with and we are so honored to be able to show his work in our portfolios. Michael is a true artist in every sense of the word.
Over the past 25 years I have been fortunate to photograph some amazing people in all walks of life.
From rock concerts with 50, 000 screaming fans, to hand-built custom motorcycles priced at over one hundred thousand dollars, to wonderful wedding couples and their family and friends, to locations in the US and Europe that some people only dream about, I have seen just about everything. Being able to share what I see with others has always been the most important part of photography to me.
To be able to express the emotion of the moment in one frame is a huge challenge and to be able to do it successfully is what sets a photographer apart from the others. Patience, experience and passion combined with the desire to share what I see is what I feel sets my work apart from others.
I don't consider myself a wedding photographer, more like a photographer that does weddings and I think that there is a huge difference. All the other work I do, whether it's a magazine shoot for a custom motorcycle or a rock star reaching out to his fans, contributes to a certain style that is unique and very personal.
My clients, whether celebrity or not, have to feel a high level of trust in me and the fact that I am there to photograph them as they are and not as I want them to look. I want their defenses down and their masks off. I want the real person to come through and that only happens when they know that my passion for what we are doing is equal to their passion. I want the photographs to be as unique and individual as the person in them.
Please take the time to visit my website and see for yourself. I will let the pictures do the talking.
