Michael was an absolute dream to work with and the pictures came out beautifully! Our originally date was at the peak of Covid in 2020 and they were always responsive to any questions and were flexible with working with us when we decided to postpone. When the day finally arrived Michael made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We choose Michael Anthony Photography for the cinematic look and the final pictures are perfect! - Amber & Mike

Everything about our experience with Michael Anthony Photography was great. Not only do we love the final product, we enjoyed working with the team of photographers ! They were punctual, passionate, and non invasive through our whole process ! From the product to the photographers, to the experience in the office, this experience could not have been better for us. Thank you!!

Michael and Jennifer are both amazing and very professional!! It was my first time at a photoshoot and I felt very comfortable working with the team. If I could put a 10 star rating I definitely would. Highly recommend Michael Anthony Photography.

My husband and I booked Michael Anthony Photography for our engagement photos and wedding. We REALLY enjoyed working with our photographer and the company. We selected them because they have a very cinematographic style and look to their photography. There were photographs I saw on their website I was hoping to emulate but wasn't sure if we would be able to because some of the photos I like look like they come from very expensive weddings, but I was very happy when I saw that that didn't matter. They were able to capture the magic of the photos I liked at the venue I was at.

They do excellent posing and are extremely quick with their use of lighting. You can tell they know what they are doing and can get it done fast. We only had one photographer for our wedding day and he was fun to work with and extremely fast and efficient. Our photographer was very personable and a joy to work with! I also ended up asking lots of questions in regards to our wedding day timeline and they were very accommodating and helpful in terms of helping me figure out the best timeline for the day. They wanted to ensure I was getting the most for my money.

Our wedding was perfection thanks to MAP. Every member of the team is amazing and I usually never write reviews but I had to here. The quality is out of this world, the service is incredible (they are SO nice) and the best part is they were accommodating to our needs (we changed our time a bunch and pricing as well). They did their best to fit OUR budget without compensating the slightest bit of quality. If you have to cut your open bar, if I were you I would not hesitate hiring Michael Anthony Photography in the slightest.

My newly married husband and I had the BEST experience with Michael Anthony Photography Team. Our photographer Kevin was proactive in looking for shots to take and gave great directions for helping us pose. I felt very comfortable and confident having Kevin responsible for capturing our special day. When we reviewed the final photos this morning, I was stunned by the entire gallery. The lighting, editing, and key attention to detail told a wonderful story of our wedding day. I felt like I was reliving the day with each picture. The cherry on top was seeing the heartfelt joy on each of our Mom's faces once the slideshow ended. Thank you Michael Anthony Photography!

Michael Anthony Photography’s awards speak for themselves. His work is on another level of it’s own. You will not regret booking Michael Anthony Photography for your event. His photos look like they came from a magazine and are definitely a work of art. Michael and his team are very professional and easy to work with. We loved working with him and his team for our wedding. Despite the challenges of COVID, they were very understanding and accommodating to the situations that were out of our control. I highly recommend booking Michael Anthony Photography, not only because his level of professionalism is top notch but because his photos are absolute quality and worth every penny. You will not regret having him and his team document your wedding!

-Karen & Theo

We are IN LOVE with the quality of our engagement pictures and bridal ones that we saw today! We can;'t wait to have them up on our mantle annnnd possible order more in the future! These guys are so easy to work with. Courtney in the office made it so easy or us to understand the different packages and was so helpful in helping us pick our what we wanted over the mantle I the first place! Our photographer was Lorreen who we LOVED working with! She's so easy going, fun, and sooo creative! She and I were able to bounce ideas off of each other and we were all able to keep our shoots so fun. The quality and what she did with the lighting is unmatched. If you're thinking about wedding photography, don't think twice on these guys. Book a consult or call them today!

So let me start by saying when you are planning YOUR wedding, you are looking for not only the best photographer but someone who is capable of bringing your dream & vision to life. I found Michael Anthony Photography on my own even though I had a planner (after I was referred many photographers). I live in New York and got married in Malibu, CA. The work I seen was amazing and I did not hesitate to book in 2018. Now planning a wedding is stressful but planning a wedding across the country is even more stressful....I thought. Little did I know I was planning a wedding across the country during COVID 19. Michael And Jen were a actual dream to work with! After so much anxiety being built from not knowing if my wedding was going on, they were such solid vendors. When you are planning a wedding you are thinking about vendors that are really there for you and worried about your well being, well these people are the best. For example, on my wedding day I had so much emotion I didn’t want to go for my first look, I was full of tears. Jen actually talked to me and told me every bride feels like this and fixed my makeup. I loved them both. Like I said, I live in NY and I encourage you if you live anywhere else’s in the world, FLY THEM OUT... I would in a heartbeat. When it was all said and done I had 900 pictures and I loved every single one of them!
Also, Courtney the studio manager was there for me throughout the entire pandemic answering all my questions. Very professional & a wonderful experience! ONLY use Michael Anthony Photography😀

-Christina & Frank

One thing my now husband and I realized throughout the planning process of our wedding was the importance of vendor selection. We met with a few photographers but Michael Anthony was our top choice. While we were first drawn to his unique style, meeting with Courtney and understanding the process confirmed that we were on good hands. We had such an incredible experience during our engagement shoot at El Matador in Malibu. Michael and Jen made it so fun and the photos came out amazing. When I first got the email to do a boudoir shoot, I didn't know if I would be up for it. Jen made me feel so at ease and it was extra special to have Jen and Michael capture my husband's reaction to the boudoir book on the wedding day. So glad I did it! We just did our preview session for the wedding photos last night and it has been an incredible journey reliving the best day of our lives. They captured all the special moments and we cannot wait to share the photos with our family and friends. I could not have imagined working with anyone else. As a bride you have a million lists running through your head. The team at MA goes out of their way to cover all the details and are so responsive and incredibly caring. We still have our bridal portrait session but are already thinking of what we could have them photograph next! Highly recommend!

Michael Anthony photography made our wedding day magical and we have memories to last a lifetime! When Abe and I got engaged friends kept telling us that after your wedding day all you have is the memories and pictures to remind you of your big day. Abe and I wanted to make sure we had the very best photography team and Michael Anthony photography and his team are THE BEST!!! The day of the wedding Michael and Jen made everything go so smoothly.

We LOVE all of our pictures Michael and Jen’s creativity can’t wait for our friends and family to see all of the photos!!! Courtney is the sweetest and is very professional in answering any questions or concerns we had along the way! Loved going into the studio to see our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures Courtney was always there to greet us with a smile. Thank you Michael Anthony photography team

I randomly found Michael Anthony Photography on Instagram after my now-husband proposed to me, and as soon as I saw the images, I knew we had to book him. The studio manager, Courtney, was super sweet and such a breeze to work with. When it came time to do our engagement shoot, Michael came with his wife Jennifer and they were a BLAST! We were laughing almost the whole shoot. Neither my husband nor I are exactly the most comfortable in front of a camera, but they made us feel so at ease. I actually nearly passed out at one point (didn't know it at the time, but I'm apparently anemic and dizziness/lightheadedness are symptoms). I was so impressed that they both knew exactly what to do. Michael grabbed a chair from some random people (lol) and Jennifer immediately took care of me, making sure I could breathe. I was worried how the pictures would turn out because of that, but they were legendary! The day of our wedding, everything that could've gone wrong with other vendors did, so it was such a relief seeing Michael and Jennifer. Once again, they were so easy and so much fun to work with. You'd think I would've known what to expect since they did our engagement photos, but once I saw the wedding photos, I was stunned! They really look like something out of a movie. Seriously, check out their website and social media accounts to see what I'm talking about. Phenomenal! I really cannot say enough good things about them. Hiring Michael Anthony Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thank you so much, Michael (and Jennifer and Courtney)!!

-Lance & Lori

Seriously...there aren't enough words that my wife and I can say to demonstrate how fortunate and grateful we are to have had Michael Anthony Photography be a part of the most special day in our lives. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for everything! Thanks to them, my wife and I have the absolute BEST wedding photographs from every single second of our wedding. They were able to capture each and every special moment throughout our day and now we will have them forever. The quality of work and professionalism that they placed in to our wedding and every other wedding that they photograph is priceless. Everyone at Michael Anthony Photography is a true professional and they honestly and genuinely care about each and every one of their clients. From the very beginning, my fiance (now wife) felt like we were in great hands, especially after meeting with Courtney who is the Studio Manager. She was incredible and just has the best and happiest attitude. She was one of the main reasons why we decided to hire Michael Anthony Photography and she ALWAYS made us feel welcomed and taken cared of. Not once did my wife and I have a single worry because we knew we had found the BEST! We cannot describe just how amazing and professional our photographers were with us and everyone at our wedding. Both of our photographers also had the best energy and attitude throughout our special day and they made sure we got all the photographs we wanted. We also got out entire wedding photographs really quick after our wedding and that also blew us away. I have several friends who were married before us and their photographers still have not given them their photographs to this day. Michael Anthony Photography, Courtney and our two Photographers (Kevin and Jackie) never made us feel like, "Clients" but instead treated us like FAMILY. We cannot wait to share our AMAZING photographs with our friends and family and will always reccomended Michael Anthony Photography to each and every person we know. Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for everything!

We are SO happy we chose Michael Anthony Photography for our wedding photography. Once we met with Staci for our engagement shoot, we knew we were in good hands. You just have to trust the process here and know that even if they pose you facing and staring at a blank wall, the talent an skill this team has will produce a stunning photo that looks like your gazing out a window that never even existed! We absolutely loved our engagement photos, so we had no doubt we would be just as obsessed with our wedding photos. Sure enough, we were not disappointed. Everyone has complemented the style, editing and professionalism of our photos and of Staci on day of. She did her thing, did not get in anyone's way, kept up with the fast-paced timeline, and was just such a sweetheart. We also have had the pleasure of meeting with and talking to Michael, Jen and Courtney at the Studio, and we're blown away by their warmness, professionalism and talent. Courtney answered all our questions promptly and never once made us feel rushed or pressured. We recommend MAP to every single couple we know shopping around for photography services. You will absolutely not be disappointed.

To my now husband and I, the photography and videography aspect of our wedding was one of the most important budgets for our wedding. From the start, we had done some research and had so many to choose from that it made our head hurt. Finally, we were able to narrow our photographer/videographer options down to 5. When I had my meeting with (Maphoto), I was absolutely blown away! Michael Anthony, the owner, sat on an 1 hour Skype call will me thoroughly going through his philosophy, how his client satisfaction is key and showed me so many photos of differ styles that we can choose from. After I told my husband about this Skype conference call, we called MA back and said, “Yes! We want to go through our wedding journey with you!” Throughout the process, Courtney Tomey, the office manger, was FANTASTIC! Beyond words, my husband and I could not feel more at ease with her communication skills, quick email responses, thorough explanations and organization skills! Weddings are such a crazy time and can make a sane person CRAZY, but she kept us grounded throughout the entire process! We had a fantastic time time working with them, and our wedding pictures are to die for! Their quality of canvas, photo prints and albums don’t even compare to others we have seen. The MAP team has a way of telling your story in such a romantic way, and their photos speak for themselves. Thank you for everything!

- Soraya & Daniel

Michael's images speak for themselves. From start to finish we are satisfied customers. The entire team is very professional, they make you feel comfortable and never felt under any pressure. Everything was delivered as promised in a timely manner, very efficient. Way to go with all those emails Courtney! Best costumer service of all the vendors we delt with during our wedding planning experience. We are so happy that we went with Michael Anthony Photography to capture our special day. From the engagement session, to the wedding, and the post bridal shoot every image we received we were EXTREMELY happy with. Our guest also commented on how professional and friendly the team was and everyone loved the images as well. Definitely worth it, they truly know how to listen to their clients and deliver amazing one of kind images.

-Ariana & Francisco

Michael Anthony and his team were great! Beautiful photos, very professional and it felt very comfortable having his crew around on my wedding day. I am very happy with the photos and can't wait to put them up around our house! If you are looking for a photographer with unique photos I would highly recommend Michael Anthony. My husband hates taking photos and Michael made him feel so comfortable and he actually ended up really enjoying the experience! I am so happy we chose to work with him and we will definitely be using him again in the future!

-Hayley & Jason

My fiancé and I had the best experience with everyone at Michael Anthony Photography. I fell in love with Michael's style of photography right away and knew that I needed him to shoot our engagement photos. I have been an agency model for 13 years so I love being in front of the camera no matter who is behind it. As for my fiancé, he was kind of nervous at the beginning but Michael and his wife, Jen, made him feel beyond comfortable and truly enjoy our shoot together. Not too long after our shoot, we met with Courtney to go over all the options for photos. She was patient, very sweet, and explained everything very well. We got to see examples of everything from canvases, metal photos, albums, guest books etc. It was nice to have everything in front of you when deciding on what you want.
I honestly can't wait to shoot with this team again. They care about their clients and you can see it, not just in how they treat you, but in the work they produce.

-Mary & Michael

Michael Anthony & his whole team are absolutely amazing!!
I would of given them 10 Stars if I could. My son’s wedding pictures were way beyond anything I could of dreamed of. Our photographer really loved her job & it showed. The video they did captured all the highlights of the wedding & they didn’t miss a beat. As the mother of the groom & planning the entire wedding with my daughter in law Michael Anthony & his team were a true pleasure to work with.

Marisol & Samuel

I cannot begin to say enough about Michael Anthony Photography!!! From the minute we emailed as an interested couple to our engagement session, to the day of our wedding, to the last shot of the night, to viewing the SPECTACULAR photos taken after the wedding....we always felt like royalty and were treated with so much respect and genuine service. We got married on what seemed to be the hottest day of the year and our photos came out so wonderful and we are so over the moon happy with the, it makes you automatically forget the sweat that was dripping. The photographers have such beautiful visions and really see every shot through the end. We will definitely continue to use Michael Anthony for our future family photos and anything that needs a special moment captured because they literally do just that!!! TOP NOTCH!!!!

-Kristi & Shane

Michael and Jen and their entire team are absolutely AMAZING! My venue was very dark, with very little natural light and I got married in the evening at the very end of October. Needless to say I needed a skilled photographer who wasn't afraid of getting those dark shots and who embraced the dark romantic look I was going for. Michael was absolutely hands down the best choice. Upon meeting his Studio Manager who showed me gorgeous examples of "darker" weddings he had done, I was sold. Michael and Jen made the entire process so easy. They are very professional, incredibly artistic, and just enjoyable to be around. They were able to capture those little intimate moments that made the day so special. It was very important to me to be able to find a photographer that I got along with on a personal level. I was happy to have them be a part of my day and quite frankly, a little sad when I said goodbye to them at the end of our wedding. Furthermore, our pictures were incredible. I have received non-stop compliments and inquiries as to who my photographer was. I cannot recommend Michael enough, if you are getting married, BOOK HIM. You will not be disappointed.

-Briana & Josh

Most photographers would say they have the privilege of shooting a couple, but I think it can be best said that WE had the privilege of having them shoot us. Michael and Jen are nothing short of extraordinary. Working with them was one of the easiest aspects of our wedding journey. Jolan and I are funny and quirky but most definitely awkward in front of a camera. After working with Michael and Jen, we felt like a boss with a camera!! It was their expertise, compassion, and energy that made everything so comfortable and fun! After the wedding, one of the most compliments we got from our family and friends was in regards to our photos! Of course we were also super proud and showed it off to the world, but we definitely held the example of what type of photographer a wedding couple should hire!
