Michael Anthony Photography is a Los Angeles-based Wedding Photography studio that was started in 2011 by Michael Anthony and Jennifer Loizzi. Our work is best known for its colorful, contemporary, cinematic style of portraiture.
Our love for storytelling and wedding photography has allowed us to capture weddings all throughout the world. We have photographed weddings in more than a dozen countries for stylish couples that want to remember their day as more than average.
As our company grew one of the busiest independently owned wedding photography studios in the country, we began to train photographers in our cinematic style of wedding portraiture
In the beginning, we created a style of photography that puts your story first and allows for us to capture your environment, your love, your emotion, and the people you cherish on the most important day of your life. This isn’t marketing fluff, know how important of a decision you have to make when choosing your photographer, and we don’t take any of our clients for granted. We have over 100 5-Star reviews on independent websites because we have a client-first mentality.
Our goals for our clients are simple. First, provide an absolutely incredible client experience from start to finish. Second, provide our brides and grooms with creative photography that matches the vision our couples have of their wedding day. Our style and message are consistent in every wedding we photograph. Since 2011, our team has documented over 1200 amazing couple’s weddings all throughout the world.
Our studio is located in Santa Clarita, right next to Six Flags Magic Mountain. We photograph weddings throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and at destinations worldwide. Our studio is unique in that we have a team of talented photographers, however, we have maintained a training standard to deliver consistent quality to our images. That way our clients have the reliability and customer service of a larger company while maintaining the artistry of a smaller one.
We have clients throughout the world who have had us document their wedding in our unique style, and we have been able to create memories for them beyond their wedding. We consider ourselves life photographers, rather than just wedding photographers.
Every couple has a love story, we want to tell yours…….

Our Photography Styles
Every one of our artists is trained to be proficient in 3 different styles of photography. The one thing that differentiates our studio from all others is that we guarantee our clients variety, and our team is able to work in all different scenarios. We don’t just shoot weddings in one of these, every wedding will get all three. Read below for more details……….
This is the Signature Michael Anthony Photography style. We created this style that blends bursts of color with fashion-inspired lighting to unify you with your environment. This style of photography is the most difficult of all of our styles of shooting but our team is trained to create at least one image like this from each part of the wedding day. These images are best used for wall art in your home.
Do you love the emotion in wedding photographs? We do too. Capturing emotion is our favorite part of the day. The trick to capturing good moments is to shoot through them as they are happening. As much as we love watching these moments unfold, we would much rather be working to document them. Photojournalism is the most important skillset that a wedding photographer has.
The buzzword for this style today in our industry is “natural light photographer,” however it’s crucial to make sure that the studio that shoots your wedding can create this look, even when the light is low. This style is clean, light and airy. Every wedding will have many images shot in the traditional style because it’s timeless, classic, and will never go out of style.
