I found this photographer by looking at the knot website. I was excited when I saw that they had a deal with David's Bridal (where I had bought my dress). We were able to get everything we wanted (engagement and bridal sessions, 2 photographers for the big day, travel to our location, several hours of shooting) plus a few things we hadn't thought about (signing board, large photo from bridal session, wedding book). The pictures turned out great with lots of variety in the poses and shots. They were easy to get in touch with and easy to work with. Very very pleased with our choice.

Overall I was pleased with Better Light. The engagement session was a little awkward, but I'm not sure if it was the photographer or the fact that it was pretty chilly outside, or a combination of both. After the wedding we came to the conclusion that they are better at capturing the moment, rather than creating the moment. The wedding photos did turn out well though.

Michael did our engagement session, bridal session & wedding. He made good suggestions for where we should have each session since we didn't really have any ideas of our own.
He has been very cooperative and MORE trying to get our photos chosen. We're working on getting our wedding "book" finished up & it looks fabulous so far!
I would suggest going with Better Light Photography for the value & for all the help they give you through the whole photography process.

Better Light really did a great job with our wedding and engagement pictures. Michael is very professional. His prices were the best in town and he worked with us on payment! We have so many great pictures of this special time and would recommend Better Light to anyone!

Mike (BetterLight Photographer) did an awesome job with my wedding. He is there from beginning to what is now a year later. He stuck by me and my husband's side from the engagement pictures, bridal portraits, rehearsal and dinner, the actual wedding and the fantastic wedding album. He listens to what you want and makes some suggestions along the way. I could not have asked for smoother photo sessions. I do plan on using him quite a bit into the future as well. I was not disappointed one bit in the results I received from BetterLight Photography. I highly recommend everyone to give him a call.

When my husband and I got engaged, one of my concerns was finding a photographer who would capture every moment and someone within our budget. After sending numerous of e-mails to many photographers and realizing it was way out of our price range, we found Better Light Photography. They captured every beautiful moment during the wedding and reception. Not only that, they were extremely nice, warm, and welcoming when we had our first meeting when we brought our son along and during the day of the wedding. They were with us from 11 A.M. until 8 P.M. The pictures say it all. So if you're on a budget, they will work with you as they did with us. We have a few of our wedding photos in our living room and I enjoy looking at them daily.

I would highly recommend Michael with Better Light Photography to do your wedding. He is friendly, professional and affordable. The best price for great quality and service I could find when planning my wedding. And I was very happy with the way the pictures turned out…he and his staff caught all the special moments of my big day. I’ve been married almost 2 years and I still love to pull out my wedding album and get lost in its pages.

I used Better Light Photography for my wedding and they were great! They were really flexible about payment plans and pretty reasonable on their prices. I feel like I got a lot for what we paid. Everyone at the reception loved our signature board! The staff was very friendly and helpful! I definitely recommend them! :)

Michael did an amazing job with our wedding! After pricing photographers a lot of photographers in the area and reviewing their work we decided to book with Better Light. My husband and I met with Michael and went over pricing, package options, and expectations. He explained everything clearly, helped us select a package that met our needs and was within our budget. We selected a package with two photographers, which I highly recommend. He had some great suggestions on what pictures we should take, but we clearly had the final say. It was a no-pressure, couple-centered atmosphere.
He "walked us through" the wedding day at our meeting, which helped us feel confident we would get everything we wanted out of pictures. He and his assistant were very courteous, timely, and open to any requests or suggestions we had. He made sure we got every picture we wanted, and they were all great. He made sure the pictures did not take a great deal of time after the ceremony so that we could make our way to the reception without our guests waiting forever.
At the reception, he and his assistant were very accessable. When I wanted pictures with special people who were there but weren't in the wedding party, he was always easy to find. I could tell he was keeping an eye on me in case I needed him so by the time I found him, he knew I was looking for him and was already heading over, camera in hand, just in case!
We got our pictures quickly, and even our additional orders later on were quickly done and of very high quality. Our wedding album was phenomenal! He checked in with me throughout the process to make sure it was what I wanted before anything was finalized.
We could not have been happier! We have the best record possible with which to remember every beautiful moment of our wedding day and to share with the people who couldn't be there.
