  • We hired Michael for our mini-COVID ceremony and he was wonderful and so easy to work with! We loved his work online and from the first email and meeting he was extremely responsive. One of the things my husband and I were looking for was someone who would get along with our families and not add stress to the day. When we had our Zoom call with him, we both immediately liked him and felt like we'd be comfortable with him on the big day. We had a list of family photos we wanted to make sure we got and he was super open to that. On the day of the wedding, he was exceptionally kind and really flexible. Our families loved him! He was so warm, kind, and open to whatever photos we wanted. He also didn't mind when inevitably our families wanted to take some iPhone shots. The sneak peek preview 48 hrs after the wedding, was such a treat to get some photos early and his work was beautiful. Thank you so much for making our day so special!

  • Michael exceeded our expectations. We found him by googling photographers in the bay area and were very impressed by his skills (check out his website!) Michael was very helpful throughout the whole process, and had great communication, such as answering promptly and accommodating zoom calls with us. Most importantly he makes you feel comfortable and not like some awkward photoshoot. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day! We will forever treasure the photographs he captured.

  • Michael is beyond amazing! We absolutely loved our photos and he blended in so well with our guest and family. He is so sweet and makes you feel like a rock star. He recently shot our small wedding in September and I HIGHLY recommend using him.

  • Michael did an amazing job on our elopement photos. His friendly and light personality created a calm and comfortable atmosphere. He remained professional throughout the entire process and made sure everyone was involved. Even with our mostly camera shy family, he was able to capture how we all interact with one another. He even got some great photos of our 2-year old! (Which isn’t an easy thing to do). I would recommend Michael to anyone I know looking for a photographer.

  • My now fiancé worked with Michael to set up proposal photos. Michael worked with him to suggest and location and was able to capture the most special photos of the proposal without me even noticing! He and his wife were wonderful to work with and had such a bright calming presence. Honestly the entire thing was perfect. Thank you Michael! I’d recommend you to everyone!

  • We hired Michael for our elopement in Big Sur. After searching online for wedding photographers for our special day, Michael definitely stood out! His photos were so beautiful and artistic. He definitely had the style we wanted for our wedding photos. Since we were driving from out of town, he was so gracious to set up a Zoom call with us ahead of time to get to know us a bit and understand what we were looking for. In fact, it was on this Zoom call that Michael suggested the very spot we ended up choosing for our elopement. I cannot praise him enough. He was so kind, so professional, and such an incredibly talented photographer. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. He's amazing!

  • When searching for a photographer for our elopement, I was at a lost. My husband and I researched for weeks before we finally found Michael's page. We instantly fell in love with his style of photography. The first meeting we were able to ask him questions and pick a date to book. There was no pressure from him however, he respected that it was a big decision to choose someone to be apart of such an intimate moment. And to be honest, I couldn't have imagined a better person to capture our wedding day. He is not only professional, but he makes you feel like you're talking with a friend. This also translate when you are working with him in person. Michael made us feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera. If i had to describe him in three words it would be kind, professional and talented. When we received our teasers it was no surprise that our gallery surpassed our expectations. Michael was instrumental in our wedding day happening without a single hiccup. You will not r... Read more

  • We hired Michael to shoot our wedding in Big Sur this year, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for photography services. I was nervous about the photos looking too stiff and not capturing our personalities, but Michael put us at ease before we even met him. During both the engagement shoot and the wedding, he gave us great direction and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Michael is very communicative and collaborative, and he helped us to hammer out a schedule and a plan for photos during the wedding day. Most importantly, the photos are AWESOME - he got a ton of great shots, including some of the details about the day that I was excited about (flowers!). We can't wait to work with him more in the future!

  • Michael is amazing! He photographed our elopement and from the very beginning he was super professional and communicated with us about all the details. He instantly made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We wanted some classic photos, but we were also ready to get our feet in the water and toes in the sand for some fun photos and Michael captured some amazing moments! We absolutely love our photos and we couldn't be happier with the results! Michael captured our elopement in this crazy year so beautifully, we definitely recommend using him!

  • I don’t even know where to start with how amazing Michael is at what he does. He and my fiancé coordinated a surprise proposal where he would be taking pictures. He got the most amazing photos ever! There were some hidden shots (had no clue he was following us! lol), a few shots as he was proposing (he captured all the excitement) and some shots of us together afterward. They were so beautiful, and his editing skills are amazing! Without a second thought we will be hiring him for our wedding. Thank you Michael for capturing such a special and happy moment in our lives!

  • My coworker recommended Michael Dadula since he is her family's portrait photographer so I looked up his website to check his style. I reached out to Michael in early 2020 to discuss an engagement + elopement shoot. Due to unforseen Covid-19 circumstances, we had to postpone the shoot until we were able to obtain a marriage license during county shutdown and a new ceremony date. Michael was understanding, flexible, accommodating, and caring in keeping in touch with us. We finally met in June, and the shoot went as smoothly as possible. Michael informed me when he was on the way, arrived on time, and kept a professional cool while he worked. My now-husband isn't good at posing for the camera, and Michael was able to get so many great natural shots of us. Three days after the shoot, he sent us some teaser photos to share with family and friends while we waited for the entire album. We received so many compliments on the teaser photos. Michael is a joy to work with, and we would hire him ... Read more

  • I cannot rave enough about the unforgettable experience Michael captured. He suggested the perfect setting, designed an incredible experience and delivered exceptional quality, without disturbing the intimacy of the engagement. Outstanding.

  • Michael really surpassed all of our expectations. First of all, his photos were absolutely beautiful and he did a fantastic job of capturing the day as it naturally unfolded, which is exactly what we wanted. We had chatted on the phone to discuss details and expectations for our wedding day, so we already had sort of an idea of how lovely Michael was, but we couldn't have imagined just how great he turned out to be. He was so easy-going and friendly that the whole thing was just so easy and fun and all of our guests commented on how lovely he was. Prior to the wedding he was really responsive; it was always easy to get hold of him and he responded to our emails really quickly. We would recommend Michael in an instant, he brought something to our wedding day which was totally unanticipated and wonderful.

  • Michael was the perfect fit for our wedding! He had a calming demeanor yet a fun and playful personality that made working with him a breeze. Oh, and the photos turned out amazing! He was hands down the best photographer we could've asked for.
