About our LA Wedding Photography Team

Being a creative wedding photographer in Los Angeles means that you always have to push yourself to the limits. Utilizing techniques such as Reflections, combined with beautiful light can allow for some mundane photos to go from ordinary to extraordinary.

 This image was no exception. Utilizing a reflection of the bride inside of a glass covered artwork, allowed for us to tell the story of her getting ready as the people in the background of the framed picture we're also getting ready for a wedding.

Storytelling is part of the creative process and allows for an artist to capture unique imagery from start to finish.  

The texture on the bride's dress combined it with her veil and heard contemplative expression made this image unique enough to be added to Team USA in the world photographic Olympics in 2017.

We photographed this wedding just outside of Los Angeles at the La Quinta Inn & Resort. However, these techniques can be applied at any Los Angeles wedding venue provided that there is glass covered artwork, which is usually present at most hotels or Halls.
Here at Michael Anthony Photography, my goal is to match your personality and preferred aesthetic with an incredible wedding photography experience that you and your guests will never forget. We started documenting weddings in 2011, and since then have been blessed to be able to travel the world for our clients.

Michael Anthony Photography is here to serve today’s modern, trendy brides. Our images have been featured in top wedding sites and publications from Junebug weddings to WeddingWire, California Wedding Day, The Huffington Post, Style Me Pretty, and Bridal Guide. We pioneered a unique cinematic photography style, and has been ranked #1 Wedding Photographer in the USA by multiple organizations between 2018-2021

Our team of photographers and editors at Michael Anthony Photography are handpicked by Michael Anthony and trained in our Wedding Creatives Academy. Each one possesses advanced skills in lighting, posing, and storytelling, and we certify less than 1% of the photographers that apply for our program.

We Are Los Angeles Wedding Photographers

Wedding Photography has gone through trends over the last couple of years. We have seen everything from dinosaurs chasing bridal parties, awkward poses, unflattering angles, and bad lighting. We totally understand your dilemma right now. How do you ensure that you will get photos that look different from everything you have seen. How do you know that your photographer will make you look good. How will you know that they will capture photos that tell a story, and that you would be happy to put on your wall. Even more important, how can you be sure that your photographer will make you look your best? As a Los Angeles Wedding Photographer, we have the answer for you.

Our goal is to make sure that your wedding photos capture the gravity and the emotion of your wedding day. From stunning portraits, to incredible moments between you and your loved ones. We know the core foundations that not only make great photography, but also an incredible experience for you and your family. Through expert posing, fashion inspired lighting, and incredible storytelling, our goal is to make you look your best.

We created this style of cinematic photography that is focused on you, your family, and the most important day of your life.

Welcome to Michael Anthony Photography

We have earned multiple first place awards for both portraits and photojournalism. We have photographed weddings in 9 different countries, and told over 1,000 love stories.

Our Philosophy

We believe that wedding portraiture ought to stand the test of time. In other words, your photos should not look cheesy in five to ten years. Our photos blend movement, lighting and storytelling to create unique pieces of art for your album and your home. Even in darkened settings, for instance, an ancient cathedral, where there is no natural light, we know how to create just the right amount, playing with shadows to create visually stunning images.

Simply put, our goal is to provide our clients with a flawless photography experience from start to finish and match your creative vision to a tee.

Our 3 Core Styles of Photography

Michael Anthony Photography is not your run-of-the-mill stuffy wedding photography service. We focus on cinematic portraiture, meaning that we incorporate movement and fashion-inspired posing and lighting into our work for a breathtaking experience and images like you’ve never seen before. Our creations are not mere photographs, but world-class art, blending traditional photography with creative photojournalism and modern fashion influences to create one-of-a-kind images that you and your loved ones will treasure.

Our team of 20 talented photographer-storytellers at Michael Anthony Photography exists to make luxury photography available to everyone. We created a style of photography that puts your story at center stage, and allows us to capture your love reflected in your emotion, the environment, and the people you love the most who are here for you on the most important day of your lives.

Every single artist on the team at Michael Anthony Photography is trained to be proficient in three different styles of photography. We guarantee our clients variety in styles and locations and shoot each wedding in all three styles. These are the three styles that we specialize in:


This is the signature MAPhoto style, which blends bursts of color with fashion inspired lighting to unify you and your environment. Though this is the most difficult style to shoot, our team is trained to create at least one image in this style for each part of your wedding day, and the results are perfect as framed wall art for your home.

Light & Bright

As Los Angeles wedding photographers, we often shoot couples in well lighted as well as not-well lighted areas. Natural light is a hot topic among folks in the photography industry, and we are able to create this clean, airy, and light look for you even when the light is low. This timeless, classic form of photography will never go out of style.

Creative Candid

If you love seeing the emotion from your wedding day, you will resonate deeply with our second style, which we create by capturing emotional moments as they unfold before our eyes. Photojournalism is the key component to a successful story. Images that are not prompted can give us the best quality foundation for a beautiful album
