I do not think we could have found a better photographer! Michael and his team went over and above to make our wedding day perfect! All of our photographs came out absolutely stunning! So much so, my husband and I are having trouble picking out our favorites for our wedding album. Their professionalism and talent is over the top! Michael has an amazing gift of knowing when to capture special moments, finding perfect lighting and making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera! He truly knows how to make every shot a beautiful piece of art. I cannot praise Michael Anthony, his team, and his work enough! I guarantee that I will use them again for any of my future photography needs and will recommend him to everyone I know!

Not only was everything outstanding, I feel like they are my friends. Everyone involved was amazing. Jen is so sweet, Michael is just awesome in so many ways and Eric is talented and so friendly. They are not my wedding photographers. They will be our life long photographers!

the team at Michael Anthony Photography is! We got married on June 20th, 2014 and got to see our photos for the first time yesterday. We were blown away and moved to tears several times during our photo review. The photos captured so much o the raw emotion of the day in a non-invasive way and the photos really told the story of how magical the day was in a way that I could have never imagined. We have no idea how we are going to narrow down our favorites for print!

Michael and his beautiful wife Jen photographed our engagement session in Santa Barbara and our wedding day at The Newhall Mansion.
Michael is extremely professional and very knowledgeable when it comes to capturing the perfect picture and making them look amazing. My fiancé and I were so overwhelmed when we started our journey on selecting a photographer for our special day. After interviewing several photographers we knew that Michael Anthony Photography was for us the moment we met with him and Jen. They made us feel so good and comfortable which helped our pictures turn out amazing. Remember that you will be spending the most important day with your photographers, so it’s important to feel comfortable. Michael and Jen are newlyweds themselves so they can relate so well with how you feel as a bride a groom.
We are extremely happy with our engagement and our wedding photos but most important feel we have new friends that shared our very special day. We had so much fun in Santa Barbara and on our wedding day with them! We strongly recommend Michael Anthony Photography to all our family and friends.

Booking our wedding photographer was one of my top priorities when it came to planning our wedding. I had done my research and ended up (luckily) stumbling across Michael Anthony on Facebook. I was immediately mesmerized by his photographs. After looking at his portfolio, my now husband and I went to meet with him. We met with Michael and his wife Jen. They were incredibly friendly and honest. They took the time to get to know us as a couple. After our first meeting, we knew we wanted Michael and his team to be our wedding photographer. I didn't even meet with any other photographers because I knew it had to be Michael. During our planning process, he was there whenever I had my questions or concerns. Even when half way through the planning process, we had to change our wedding date, Michael was there and made sure he was available for our new date (THANK goodness he was). Our engagement session was remarkable. He spent two hours with us! We were blown away by the outcome. On our wedding day, Michael and Jen were professional and helped make our day run smoothly. He knew the shots I wanted and took his time to get them. The whole experience working with Michael Anthony and his team was great. I am so excited to see our wedding photos!!!

Mike (and Jen) shot our engagement shoot, my Boudoir shoot and our wedding. During my search for wedding photographers, I searched through literally dozens of websites and contacted many, many people. We liked them so much we booked them before our first meeting because we lived across the country in Pittsburgh, PA 1) Professionalism: Mike responds to emails promptly and his answers are always thoughtful. During each of our photo shoots he arrived early and worked with incredible tenacity to get you the best images. When picking any vendor (or any decision for that matter!) it's really important for me to work with people who have the utmost sense of integrity. Mike and Jen's packages are incredibly fairly priced and they are very honest business owners. I think that trust between a photographer and client inherently leads to beautiful photographs. 2) Quality: Our photographs from each of the photo sessions are truly mesmerizing. The lighting, creativity, and emotions in the photographs are so clearly evident. They edit and process the photos to reflect who you are as a couple...whimsical, glamorous, flirtatious, etc. When you talk to Mike and Jen about their portfolio what is most evident is the amazing pride they take in their work and in the brand they are creating. They want nothing less than to create images of the utmost quality. 3) Future: Before our wedding even took place we paid to be in their Client For Life program. We made this choice because Mike and Jen work hard to break boundaries in the field of photography. They aren't afraid to utilize new technologies and continue to learn and grow. We want our yearly sessions with them to not only be about our family, but to also be a time capsule of the developments in the photography field. We are excited to see all of their new and innovative techniques over the years, and wish them many more years of success in their business as well as their marriage.

My husband and I had an excellent experience with Michael (and Jen his wife). I heard about them through my best friend who used them for her wedding. They were great at her wedding and knew I could trust them! I cried watching the slideshow at their office two weeks after my wedding because I just love ALL the photos!
They are a wonderful husband and wife team! They definitely know what they are doing and I would recommend them to anyone! My friend just got engaged and I told her she needs to use them!

Not only did they provide us with GORGEOUS engagement and wedding photos, but they also kept us relaxed and smiling all day, which can get stressful for some of us brides. They are extremely professional, and respond to emails right away. Once you walk into their studio, and see the beautiful photographs, you'll know you're in the right place. I would recommend them to anyone. We can't wait to work with them again!!
