Michael is fantastic! He and his assistant Tatiana took gorgeous photos of our wedding that were consistent with the old-timey style we were looking for. He was very easy to work with, asked good questions, and consistently overdelivered on his commitments. Tationna was an excellent assistant photographer. They really captured the motion and feel of our event, with a photojournalistic style that was still romantic. The services were affordable relative to what we got. I would recommend Michael in a heartbeat. More...

From the start of our wedding day, Mike was an absolute dream! He was with my groom and the boys in the morning and they had nothing but amazing things to say about him. Throughout the night he was seen running around capturing each and every moment. In between taking pictures it was great to see him enjoying the night and laughing with our guests rather than hiding like some photographers do. Thank you Mike and M4J photography! More...

Hiring M4J Photography was a delight for us! The quality of their work was amazing, the turn around time was great, the communication even better, and their upbeat personalities were a great fit. We also really found the ordering of prints via the M4J website to be very convenient because they were mailed directly to our home and our family and friends did not have to wait for us to send them photos! Overall A+ plus performance for Michael and M4J Photography. Thank you! More...

M4J Photography was fantastic for our special day!
Michael was very communicative through the entire process and he worked his butt off!
The final result was better than we could have hoped for.

M4J Photography was a great choice for our special day! Michael was so kind, patient, and the quality of his work speaks for itself. We absolutely loved his unique style of photography, his sense of direction, communication, and open-mindedness. He is definitely one of a kind and we will be sure to use Michael for family events and photo shoots moving forward. Thank you so much, Michael! More...

Michael is nothing less than magnificent photographer. We could not have asked for a better photographer. His attention to detail from the beginning to end. As a type A, I greatly appreciated how organized and prompt he was with sending the contract and information prior to the session. He was readily available via email and responded faster than the speed of light! We are a family of eight and he was able to catch all of our GREAT angles. He worked great with my 3 yr old niece and 8 yr old nephew. With their short attention span, he was able to keep them engaged and landed AWESOME pictures for us! In addition, he managed 6 adult personalities and requests, and made EVERYONE overjoyed with the results of the pictures. He understood the types of shots we wanted and how to accommodate our large group. We have had horrible family photographer experiences and are thrilled to have met Michael. We are keeping Michael as our family photographer and future events because he is fun, personable, and is an expert in his work! I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for above and beyond quality and customer service. He truly cares about giving you the best picture to capture your magical moment! Thank you Michael for being the BEST! More...

My husband and I (and many of our guests) can't rave enough about how great of a job Mike did at our wedding! The shots he took were of an absolutely stunning quality and you can really tell that he genuinely loves what he does. He's been accommodating and responsive from the very beginning and his online gallery display really simplifies the entire process. We had a great experience with Mike and would recommend his services to anyone! More...

We absolutely enjoyed our experience with our photographer Michael. He was extremely fun and open to use my ideas for the shoot. He and his assistant took so many photos I was really feeling like a star. I would refer Michael to anyone who needs a photographer as he is definitely the best. So far I have seen a few of his edited photos and I'm in love. Thank you Michael! Oshin More...

Michael did an amazing job shooting our surprise engagement! He managed to capture every moment from the time we walked into the room to Melissa's celebratory dance after the proposal. And he did all of this in full stealth mode... she had no idea he was there! Michael was very professional and fun to shoot with. He guided us through posed shots afterward and they came out beautifully. Melissa and I could not be happier with the photos. We had such a hard time choosing and wanted to frame them all. Thanks again, Michael! More...

Mike was phenomenal to work with. He is extremely professional, punctual, and talented. I hired Mike to capture my proposal to my (now) finance, and he did a great job staying incognito and capturing the moment perfectly. He really brought out the best in us for our photographs, and I'm so glad that I hired him so I can relive the joy of that moment forever. More...

What more can I say about this gentleman? He has been great from day one. Hiring M4J Photography to capture our big day was great decision on our part. Michael was VERY patient with us throughout the process of booking his services. We (mostly me) had a ton of questions about how the photography process works, turn around time, photo count and more. He was able to answer everyone of those questions for us which made us confident in booking his services. The day was, of course, a blast and the end result exceeded expectations. The photos are a pleasure to look at! We could not be happier with M4J Photography. Thank you Michael! More...

The quality of M4J's work is spectacular. Myself, along with my husband and family absolutely love what Michael was able to deliver for our gathering. From the posed to candid shots (personally my favorites), he was on point. If you're looking for a quality photographer who also is a great guy, look no further, M4J is it! More...

We are so happy that we hired Michael for our special day! The quality of his work, his professionalism, and the fact that he's very accommodating made him an easy hire for us. From beginning to end, Michael and M4J Photography have been extremely helpful and have made the process an easy and enjoyable one. We also loved how interactive he was with family, friends, and guests throughout the day. We now have beautiful memories that we will cherish forever! I highly recommend Michael and M4J Photography's services for anyone looking for a top notch photographer for their special day or any event at all! Thanks Michael! More...

Mychael: Michael did all of the pictures from my engagement to my wedding. Michael was extremely professional and skilled in his art. Now, my wife and I have memories of one the happiest times in our lives thanks to Michael. I would tell anyone to utilize his skills for their professional or personal event. Michael is the best in town!
Nisa: Mike made my wedding day absolutely perfect! He was so professional and so creative. My pictures turned out beautifully & I wouldn't of picked any one else!!

Michael and his assistant shot my small, intimate wedding back in December of 2016. He was responsive and interactive prior to the event and the day of. His professionalism is top notch and the quality of his work is tier 1. My wife and I, along with our guests, were very satisfied with Michael's services, the turn around time, and final the product of this work. Over a year later, we still would definitely recommend him to other couples looking for a wedding photographer; especially small, intimate events. such as ours. More...

Michael took our 25th Wedding Anniversary pictures. He took amazing quality pictures, asked us our preferences before the event, within a few days after we could see them online, placed an order or develop the pictures ourselves! It was a great experience and pleasure to work with him and we recommend his work without any hesitation. More...

How do say thank you to someone who has captured a moment that you will cherish forever? I asked Mike to shoot my engagement on top of the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. This was a very special moment in both my life and the history of U Pitt. No pressure to Mike haha! I could not have asked for anything more from the start to finish with Mike. He is a true professional who has hustle, determination, and skill that surpasses any photographer I have seen to date. I will be using M4J Photography in the future and I highly suggest that if you are between a couple different photographers M4J Photography will be the best choice you have made in a while. For now, I am still looking at the wonderful photos that I will frame in my apartment and keep forever. Thank you again, Mike! More...

M4J was a great value! Mike is responsive and all the pictures turned out great!

Mike photographed our wedding and did an absolutely phenomenal job! He captured a lot of great moments and made everything look beautiful. He was extremely professional throughout the wedding and in all of his communication with us before and after the wedding. He always responded to messages and questions quickly. He definitely helped make the day less stressful by making sure we had an opportunity to choose shots we wanted ahead of time and sticking to our schedule of events! We have more photos from our special day than I could have ever hoped for. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! More...
