It was amazing working with Mike on our engagement photography session! He is creative, very easy to work with, flexible and most importantly extremely responsive. He answered all my questions and was open to all my suggestions.

Our photo session went for almost two hours starting at the Lincoln Memorial then walking down to Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C. As we walked down to Pennsylvania Ave., he suggested that we stop at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to take advantage of the lighting and beautiful architecture. I would not have thought of stopping there but he has a keen eye for dramatic photography and he was right, the pictures at DAR were stunning! We were even able to do a quick wardrobe change and have a day AND night shoot after the sun went down.

After I got the proofs back, I noticed a few pieces of hair were sticking up and out of place in some of the pictures and mentioned this to Mike. He quickly got to work and edited all of them! The pictures were great but even better after the edits.

My fiancé and I are extremely happy with the high quality of all of them and plan on using them for our "Save the Date", invitation, and a slide show at our wedding. Mike is an exceptional professional photographer and I would recommend him for shooting any occasion. We would definitely book him again!

I just cannot say enough about Michael. 

My boyfriend and I took a trip to DC and we wanted our picture taken at the Lincoln Memorial. Instead of attempting to capture some bad selfies on our own, we decided to hire a photographer and dress up for our pictures. 

It was very last minute but Michael still accommodated to our schedule. Him and his assistant/ girlfriend Charity met up with us at the Lincoln Memorial. 

It was late at night and the area is not the best lit, but that was no obstacle. Michael and Charity worked so hard to get us the perfect pictures. He knew exactly where to place us so that the little light available would work in our favor. 

Michael and Charity make an excellent team. Whatever he needed help with, she was ready to act on it. She also helped with pose and background suggestions. Having her feminine touch was an added bonus. 

This is the first time we do a photo shoot and I was so worried it was going to be awkward. But it was far from it. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease. It was natural, easy, and SO much fun. He is so talented and definitely has an eye for photography. 

The best part of it, 5 minutes into the shoot, my boyfriend proposed and Michael was there ready to capture the moment. The pictures are absolutely priceless. I'm obsessed, I can't stop looking at them. 

On top of it all, he opened up his schedule on Monday morning to take our pictures at the national arboretum, simply because he wanted us to have daytime pictures as well. 

We are originally from Dallas and when we get married, we want him to fly in and be our wedding photographer. He is incredibly talented, he was so easy and so amazing to work with, and the pictures...there are seriously no words to describe them. We wanted a picture at the Lincoln Memorial, and what we got was so much better than we could've imagined. I just can't thank him enough.

I have worked with Mike as our family photographer for years. Each session I've seen his talent and professionalism grow. He is always accommodating and very flexible when it comes to locations and schedules which is great for my family shoots with small kids. He does great candid shots that really capture the moment. He also does a great job of editing of the pictures before finalizing them. This step really makes the pictures pop! I would definitely recommend him for any style pictures for any occasion!

Charity and Michael did a fantastic job shooting mine and my fiance's proposal! The day went perfectly. It started off as dinner and a walk around Georgetown with my fiance, Chris. Along our walk I eventually see a set of pink rose petals arranged in the shape of a heart on the boardwalk. Chris then leads me inside this heart, gets down on one knee, and asks me to be his wife. After I said yes and I came back to reality, I noticed Michael taking pictures of this magical moment! 

I had no idea they were there. During the actual proposal they were completely undetectable, and afterwards we went straight into a photo shoot where he got even more awesome shots for us (that we use on EVERYTHING lol). I'm so glad they were there to capture one of the most special moments of my life and the pictures we received from them are worth 10,000 words! We're planning to have them shoot our wedding in April.
