A little behind the scenes at a Shoot!
Adam is has an amazing talent for capturing the moment. He went with us to our destination and everything went perfect. He looked into the weather almanac ahead of time to see when the sun typical came up, went down and typical weather conditions. I didn't know how important it was to have a plan - but he did and I trusted it. Plan went perfect and everything worked out great. While he was taking the pictures you could see his passion and excitement which we believe lead to the result of perfection. He wasn't there only to do a job - he understood the meaning of the trip and was great to work with!
Ugh, where to start! Adam is an amazing photographer! He shot our engagement and wedding photos and I couldn't be happier! Very professional and on point and he will make you feel so comfortable! Even my family members came up to me after the wedding raving about how awesome he was! I promise you if you hire Adam he will not disappoint! Thanks again Adam :)
Adam was a fantastic photographer and captured every moment of our wedding day perfectly. Every little detail about the day (especially the ones we may have missed) were so beautifully documented. He’s extremely easy to work with... easy payments, flexible schedule, and responds quickly.
Adam was FANTASTIC! He was purposeful with our time and skillful with his photography and positioning. He made sure that we hit the best places in the city at the right time to capture the best light. He is absolutely a master of his craft and I look forward to booking him to capture my next big life event! If you’re on the fence about who to hire, Adam is your guy if you want the most remarkable pictures possible!
Adam was the best photographer a bride could ask for, and a dream to work with. From the moment I met him I knew we would work great together. His work is amazing and his personality is even better! My husband and I had a great time at the engagement shoot. We had never had pictures taken together before, and it really helped work out some of our awkwardness! Not to mention we received some pretty bomb pictures out of it for our Save the Dates!
When you hire Adam, you don’t just hire a photographer; you hire a day of coordinator too! He helped to plan out the entire wedding day, from getting ready to the big exit! He was incredibly organized and helpful, and on the timeline you can also list out what “must have” photos you want! The whole wedding day went without a hitch! He arrived at the hotel soon after hair and makeup came and stayed busy the whole time! We were running early so had time for extra pictures prior to the ceremony! After the ceremony, he stayed cool when all 70 members of my family lined up for a group picture! He was nonstop all reception, and guests kept coming up to us saying that he was the hardest working person there!
We received all of our pictures in an incredibly timely manner and they are AMAZING!!! (Seriously. Check out his blog. They’re awesome.) All of his hard work through the whole day really show with the amount of awesome pictures. Each one is perfect. There is a good mix of posed and candid, and even the dance floor pictures look great. We could not thank Adam enough for the unbelievable job he did in transforming two awkward engineers into models. HIRE HIM! You won’t regret it.
Adam was the best photographer I could have asked for! He made our engagement photos so much fun and our wedding day so easy. He was very thorough and made sure we took every picture we wanted. On top of that, our photos are outstanding! He truly captured our relationship and made the entire experience that much better. He was basically my personal assistant the day of the wedding and made sure I had everything I needed and everyone was where they needed to be. I want to say that before we booked him we had never even heard of him and after booking him we gained a great friend! I would recommend him to any family member, friend, stranger, etc. He is so talented! Thank you Adam, you rock!
From our very first meeting at one of our favorite neighborhood haunts to our wedding day and beyond, we felt that no other photographer could have captured our love and joy quite like Adam. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, which paid off in a big way in our photos. My wife and I were nervous about having engagement photos because we didn't think it was our "thing", but Adam and Jamie made the experience a joy and took us to wonderful locations around the city. The pictures were beautiful and having an engagement session was such a good way to get to know our photographers before our big day. Adam was fun and professional, so easy to work with, and felt like a part of our family on our wedding day. All of our wedding vendors were great, but Adam was the absolute best and went above and beyond - he even volunteered to drive me to the location of our first look. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we could not have been happier. Adam and his second shooter, Jamie, captured moments from our wedding that have made us laugh and cry and gave us memories to treasure for the rest of our lives. I have recommended Adam to every friend I know who has recently gotten engaged and I can't wait to hire him again as a photographer for more special occasions.
Adam Michaels is unreal! The photos he takes are absolutely phenomenal! Being a camera shy and nervous bride he made it such a relaxed and comforting setting for both the engagement shoot and wedding day. He is extremely accommodating when it comes to where and when you want to shoot. He will also capture any photo you have in mind for the wedding day! I would and will recommend Adam to anyone and everyone! We had a second shooter, Jamie, who is so great and fun to be around. Such talented, kind, fun people to work with. So glad we went with Adam for our wedding photographer!
Adam was AWESOME!!! He gets back to you very quickly and if very friendly. Our first shoot was rained out but he was very kind about rescheduling. The second shoot we got about half way through and it started raining again. And again we had to reschedule to finish the rest ofthe shoot but he was still amazing about it. His prices are very reasonable for the amount of pictures you get. One thing my fiance and I noticed is that he is not afraid to climb a mountain to get the shot that he wants. He was hands down the best photographer that I have ever met!
We could not have asked for a better photographer than Adam! He did an absolute perfect job from our first meeting up to our wedding day. He was timely in answering all of our questions, worked with us on any issues that came up, and assembled the perfect photography team for our wedding day! He went the extra mile to ensure that we were completely stress-free by meeting us before the wedding and walking through possible photo locations, coming up with a plan for inclement weather, putting together an organized time line for the day, and so much more! We truly felt like we were working with a friend through the entire planning process - he made us feel so much at ease with our decisions and for that we are so grateful. Adam is incredibly talented with his artistic eye and amazing editing skills, we couldn't be more happy with the end results. We also received multiple compliments from friends and family who thought his work was outstanding. We would recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer who will be fun to work with and provide amazing results!
