  • I cannot express how AMAZING Mike is. From the very moment we spoke with him, I knew that he was the photographer for us. His work is impeccable and can speak for itself.. But even better- His personality and the experience you have working with Mike, makes it that much more special. He makes you feel comfortable and confident, also while having fun. He allows you to be you and does not make you feel too posed or awkward at all during your time together. Also, Mike was able to wrangle our rowdy group and make it easy to get the pictures done efficiently. Something I found truly special was that he made sure to pull me and my husband aside and reminded us and allowed us a moment to enjoy those first few moments as a newly married couple away from the chaos. This was very special and could have been easily missed for a busy day. My husband is one who does not enjoy getting his photos taken and Mike made this an easy task for Jeremy. We have enjoyed working with Mike and will be referrin... Read more

  • Michael is an absolutely amazing photographer. We were so blessed to have come across his page when we were searching for a wedding photographer. He made the entire experience of our wedding even better and we are so grateful he was part of our big day. He has an incredible sense of humor and an amazing eye for beautiful shots. He is the only photographer I would recommend to any of my friends. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for app your help Michael. May God bless you always.

  • Note: Review is based solely on my experience and communications thus far with Michael. The year is 2020, and well..... COVID. Unfortunately, my fiance and I were unable to get married as planned this year. We still have Michael booked for our 2021 wedding and are very much looking forward to having him shoot it for us! I did however, want to review our communications and experience with him thus far, because he has been AH-mazing. This horrific year has forced us to reschedule our wedding twice and speaking with Mike has been so comforting. He's been perfectly understanding and supportive with having to move things around so many times. It speaks volume to his professionalism as that has not been my experience with other vendors. He was so willing to work with the difficulties of this year and I'm just so appreciative. I can't wait until our wedding day and to have the ability to look back on such great memories.

  • Michael is the best photographer EVER! We converted our large wedding to a micro pandemic wedding held outside in Pismo at the end of the big fires. The circumstances were tough for sure but he was outstanding. Michael was professional and helpful in so many detailed ways - bringing calm, charm, and laughter to us all. All of our guests asked me where I found him and expressed how much they appreciated him. With Michael as your photographer, you cannot go wrong. Michael - thank you for making our day so magnificent and memorable. You are very talented.

  • Michael was amazing to work with, and he took gorgeous photos of our little ceremony! He was super communicative and made planning extremely easy. His upbeat and cheery personality really helped break the ice if anyone felt awkward having their photo taken. He also helped guide us in how we should pose to maiximize the perfect shots! I can't express how much we love the photos, they truly captured how special that day was for everyone. Would absolutely recommend him!

  • Mike was great to work with for our wedding day and I would HIGHLY recommend him. He is great at getting you to look natural and smile without having to force anything. He helped a lot with the flow of the day and took BEAUTIFUL pictures. Of all of our vendors, Mike was our favorite to work with.

  • We met Mike at one of the wedding expos we attended and felt an instant connection. He is very friendly and down-to-earth! Not only is his work amazing, but he made us very comfortable during our sessions. He was also extremely helpful on our wedding day! He went above and beyond in making the process as easy as possible. Our photos turned out so beautiful and wonderful thanks to him! :)

  • Michael Stephens Photography is everything that you could ask for and more! He absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way that one could imagine. After my then fiancé proposed to me in Italy, I immediately started to research photographers in the SLO area as my husband and I love photography and we both agreed that our first vendor selection would be a photographer. We both fell in love with Michael’s brilliant eye and the beautiful scenes that he would capture; he was absolutely everything that we were looking for. And, luckily enough, he was at a vendor fair, which made for the perfect opportunity to meet him. He was so funny and he even took the time to leave his booth and introduce us to other vendors...we fell in love! Everything went so well with him as far as communication, contract and discussion of picture ideas. He made me feel so comfortable at the wedding and I’m so grateful for that because our pictures are absolutely everything that we had hoped for and more. ... Read more

  • Working with Michael was a dream. He is a really cool guy and immediately sets everyone at ease so that the best pictures can be captured. He was creative with all of the photo options and ensured we got the best pictures possible. Michael photographed our wedding in October, however, we are so happy that we also did our engagement photos with Michael as it was in essence the warm up to the big day! All of our photos turned out beautiful and he captured so many of the special moments during our big day. Not only did he take amazing pictures the day of the wedding but he was also instrumental in helping the day run smoothly. He helped make sure we stayed on time and he even bustled my wedding dress (he is amazing!). Michale is a great photographer and a true professional.

  • Mike's so awesome we hired him twice, once for our courthouse wedding in Aug 2018 and again for our larger celebration in Sept 2019. He did outstanding work at both, from preparation to end results. The first wedding was thrown together 11 days in advance due to an illness in the family. My mom found him, and I couldn't be more grateful for that find and his availability. Mike was there for an intimate ceremony and he was sensitive to the situation yet relaxed and comfortable. He made us laugh and despite the harsh August morning lighting, managed to get incredible photographs in front of City Hall in Atascadero. We hired him again for his attitude, professionalism and quality of work. He didn't push a second sale on us, because he didn't need to - his work spoke for itself. At our Sept 2019 celebration, he was again outstanding. Leading up to the day of, he called when he said he would, was responsive and easy to review contracts with. He also gave us smart advice without sou... Read more
