  • 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

  • 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.

  • Michael was so professional and had such great humor which made everyone feel so comfortable while he was taking pictures, we felt as if we’ve known him for awhile. Oh and did I mention the photos he took are incredible! If we ever need photos in the future we will definitely be using him!

  • We had the best experience working with Mike. He made taking pictures easy, relaxing, and so much fun. He knew what he was doing and what to say to capture our natural smile . Mike granted all of our wishes on any special pictures we wanted taken and even went further in capturing other special moments throughout the day. We received our pictures back and OMG!!!!! I cried at how stunning they were and can't stop looking at them. He has made it hard to pick a main one to go on our wall. Its no joke when they say the day will go by fast because it does. And Mike did such an amazing job catching pictures for us of our guests and venue. Thank you Mike. You were the best part of our wedding day and we love our pictures.

  • We met Michael at a wedding expo and immediately his work and personality stood out in the crowd of other photographers. Both he and Ashley made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera (which is no easy task). We could not be happier with the preview of the photos he has sent us. Definitely would recommend him to others!

  • I am so grateful that my wedding planner suggested booking Michael as my wedding photographer. First he came to meet me as I was getting ready and I was immediately taken back by his calm and cool demeanor. His responsiveness, attentiveness, positivity, and calm attitude alone are worth his price. My wedding day was stress free largely in part to Mike being such a chill guy! Now the quality of the photos are incredible, he captured the exact vibe my husband and I were going for. Mike made me look like a beautiful fairytale bohemian princess because he knew exactly how to capture it! He never made us feel rushed, and even did a great job getting everyone to smile and cooperate in our big family photos. I’m so so so grateful for Mike, and I highly recommend him!

  • Michael had captured a gender reveal for a friend, and so I'd always kept that in the back of my mind because it was such a unique and cool way to document the milestone moment. However, I knew it was going to be tough to book Michael for a gender reveal in the middle of a busy wedding season, but he went out of his way to make the only evening we overlapped with availability work. It was such a last minute plan, and the sun was setting fast, but thanks to Michael's knowledge of the area, can-do attitude, and positive energy, we were able to capture such special images we're going to treasure forever, and it was so important to me that I got to see the look on my husband's face when we both found out we were having a Baby Boy. I loev that we had Michael there to capture that moment for both of us and make it feels so intimate at the same time. Michael was the first to know if it was a boy, and he made the who experience one to remember. We had a blast that evening working with him, and... Read more
