"We knew we made the right choice as soon as we met him. We knew we made the right choice when we had our engagement shoot. But we are still amazed at how great having Michael Farmer Photography work our wedding was!
"WOW! Of all the important decisions we made about our wedding (other than choosing each other, of course!), choosing Michael Farmer Photography was by far the BEST decision we made. First, he gave us amazing engagement photos, making a handful of them available only hours after the shoot, which we were able to use for our wedding invitations. We had only a vague idea of where we wanted to take the photos and the feel we were hoping to achieve, but he was able to deliver stunning shots that far exceeded our expectations. He asked questions about our wedding and volunteered some of his own personal items to help us decorate at the reception. Incredible. He arrived early, prepared, and enthusiastic the day of the wedding. He helped put me, my husband, and all of our family at ease during photos with his humor and positivity, which no doubt contributed to the amazing photos he was able to get. When we forgot to organize a ride for ourselves from the ceremony to the reception (oops), he drove of us. When we forgot to eat because we were so caught up in the moment, him and his assistant (which also happens to be his lovely wife), brought us a plate of food. When we got back to the hotel room that night, there were already 20+ photos posted for us to enjoy, all of which were beautiful and cherished. He edited and delivered our wedding video to us with shocking speed and after seeing it, I can't believe I ever considered not ordering one! Don't skip on the videography--he does amazing work and you'll be glad you have it to share with those who could not make your special day and for those who are yet to join your family ;). Overall, I feel like we significantly underpaid Michael Farmer for his work, which is testament to his fabulous work. I have not stopped hearing about the quality of the photos from every friend and family member who gets their hands on them and I absolutely love each and every photo. Thanks Michael!!" -Danielle
We highly recommend Michael and his team. The whole experience, from booking to delivery was straightforward, easy and personal. Communication with Michael and the flexibility in his photo packages were so refreshing within the madness that is the "Industrial Wedding Complex."
Shopping for these personalized, important, expensive services can be tough and connecting with Michael was a huge relief. We were so happy to have found him on The Knot. We particularly loved his business model of pairing us up with photographers whose work resonated to us. It was a one stop shop with lots of options, personalized service and always classy taste.
Tailoring the packages to our exact needs and preferences was a big bonus. The Industrial Wedding Complex often presents you with set Packages A ($$@#!), B ($$$$) or C ($$$), but Michael Farmer Photography allowed us to basically paid for what we truly valued.
By the way, we are a gay couple and felt totally welcomed and embraced. In these crazy times, that is not something we took for granted. In fact, it was something we always looked for and were sensitive about. Happy Wedding!
"Fantastic Is Not Saying Enough! If a picture is words a thousands words, then I wish I would post 1000 pictures on here to show you, not just tell you, the level of service and quality that my fiancé and I received from Michael and Marni. They're an amazing team and his photography is worth alot more than he actually charges.He' very affordable and yet his quality is exceptional. My fiancé and I have used his services for our engagement photos and we're going to send our save the date cards with him as well. They came out absolutely fantastic and my fiancé is very happy... which makes me happy!I would definitely recommend Michael Farmer Photography to all my friends, family and acquaintances. Thank you Michael!" -Dima
"Best Photo Shoot Ever. My partner and I had a love shoot in prep for our wedding coming up. Michael Farmer Photography was amazing! They had the cutest props to accompany the shoot that really added extra value in the photos. If you like vintage/DIY style shoots this is the place to go. I even got help picking out the best outfit for the shoot! All my friends and family adore our photos-we received over 100 likes and comments on Facebook and everyone was asking who took the photos. Plus it is so relevant and outstanding that they work with same sex couples. My partner and I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Use this company!" -Grace and Patricia
"Simply the best. Michael Farmer is the best. Hands down. (Drop the mic, or camera if you will...) I cannot adequately express the gratitude, excitement and relief that Michael and Marni were there for our wedding. I genuinely feel that it would not have been the day it was without having them there. Not only did we know phenomenal pictures were being taken, but that we were in the company of great people who had our backs throughout the entire day. Michael Farmer and his wife, Marni, went to great lengths to put us at ease and help us enjoy the day. Yes, they were photographers with a job to do, but to us, they just felt like part of the family. Now, out of all the details in your wedding, the photographer is without a doubt (besides bride and groom of course!) the most important because they are the ones who capture those memorable moments, those small details no one else notices and quite frankly, make you look way cooler than you really are. Go with Michael Farmer Photography because he does that and way more. I felt extremely lucky and relieved to know the best in the business was at our wedding. Aesthetically speaking, he has his own unique style that some will try to emulate but can't. His photos are definitely not the generic, boring wedding photography that dominates the industry. (Don't believe me? google wedding photographs and prepare to be underwhelmed) Michael has an amazing eye and will utilize every part of his surroundings to make the final product look exquisite. Michael is cognizant that every wedding has it's own personality and style. Thus, this is reflective in his body of work. He has not devised some cookie cutter formula that he executes for every wedding. Instead, Michael approaches the wedding as photojournalist would which ensures that you will get his unique blend but, also a final product that differs from every other wedding that he's photographed. That is the way Michael approached our wedding and it is the way he will approach yours. Finally, Michael works quickly and efficiently. Our wedding video was literally posted online the next day. This was particularly nice to have for the family members who weren't able to attend our wedding be able to share our special day with us as we were still basking in the joy. I honestly feel that we underpaid the quality of photos and the service that Michael Farmer Photography provided.In closing, stop looking for photographers. Go with the best there is and call Michael Farmer. (After that, you can move on to needless stresses like the color of the table napkins and party favors!) CHEERS TO MICHAEL AND MARNI !!!! THE BEST IN THE BIZ..." -Aaron
