  • My fiancé and I had a fabulous experience with Michael J Costa photography. I connected with Michael through a recommendation from the Airbnb hostess in Oakhurst, CA where my “soon-to-be” fiancé and I were staying while we visited Yosemite National Park. Michael was extremely easy to work with, helped me coordinate the perfect time, place, and day for the BIG proposal. That may not seem all that difficult but considering we had never been to the area and were traveling from Minnesota it was extremely helpful! Not only was Michael flexible on day and time, he even drove into the park and hiked into the designated place in Yosemite before sunrise and prior to my fiancé and I arriving so that he could take some great candid shots. He was so friendly and made communication very easy via e-mail and text. The photos he took were extraordinary and captured our love with great shots. He sent a USB and provided us with edited photos that were perfect! If you are looking for a kind, respe... Read more

  • Michael did such a wonderful job. He captured all the moments of our wedding that I wanted. He was very flexible with when to take certain photos and left it up to me and my husband as to when we wanted certain photos to happen. He showed up early and took lots of candid photos and photos detailing the food, centerpieces, etc. It is wonderful because the actual ceremony goes by so fast that I am so glad to have photos of what the venue looked like and the little touches the florist did. He was very knowledgeable of Tenaya Lodge and what places worked best to take photos. He is extremely friendly, easy-going, and makes everyone feel very comfortable. He really helped capture the essence of our wedding day and I am so grateful. He gave us over 1,500 photos on a flashdrive so that we can choose which ones we like and how to distribute them. I would highly recommend him.

  • Michael showed up early the day of the ceremony, was very personable, had excellent ideas for places to take photos at the venue (Tenaya Lodge), and captured a wonderful range of moments from the wedding party before ceremony, straight through the ceremony, and all aspects of the reception. I like how he had a sense of fun and the photos don’t all look too formal or staged. We are really enjoying seeing all the photos and appreciate having them on a USB device for us.

  • What an incredible person and photographer! My husband and I first met Michael a year ago as we were looking for a photographer for our wedding. What we loved about him right from the start was his energy, light-heartedness, and professionalism, and this was before we had even seen his work! Michael shoots his weddings in a very photojournalistic style, capturing the day, the feel of the wedding. He works many props like rings, shoes, jewelry, and the dress into the setting of the venue to truly create art. Even when you don’t see him, he is working behind the scenes, adding to the mosaic of your wedding album! Our bridal party had so much fun joking around and he captured the love between us all just beautifully. What completely impressed me most of all, however, was his professionalism in working with other vendors that we had hired for the day such as our videographers. This showed me that not only is he passionate about his craft, but about his clients and their needs as well. Th... Read more

  • I knew Michael was an excellent wedding photographer, so in a pinch, I asked him if he would be willing to do a photo shoot for my son's senior portraits. We were sort of at a loss for what to do for them. He was amazing. He asked about my son's interests, hobbies and personality, he researched senior portraits, and came up with multiple locations to shoot the photos. They turned out great. Now our only problem is trying to figure out which to select!

  • For our elopement Michael took our photos and did an AMAZING job, I wish I could give him 10 star's. We had so much fun and the photos came out so beautiful. He scouted out the location prior to our wedding and he found some really amazing spots. I couldn't have asked for more beautiful memories captured by Michael. Thank you so much for making our special day ever so special. I couldn't be more grateful!! Looking forward to future family photos with Michael.

  • Michael worked tirelessly from morning to late evening and shot thousands of images. He was communicative and responsive and I was happy with most of the photos. There are some closeups that needed a different lens as some of the people were distorted, so those images were unusable. But otherwise he captured the beauty of the couple and the location. We appreciate Michael so much for his work throughout the day. ~ Jennifer M., Mother of the Bride

  • We got some great wall-worthy shots of our most precious moments. Michael spent the entire day with us without slowing down at all, making sure he had every perspective of all the best parts of the day. He delivered thousands of photos digitally, making it easy for us to take to our own printer or upload to the internet for friends and family.
