    Kay Michael is AMAZING!!!

    We have had a wonderful experience. Our first appointment with Michael- we met at his studio, talked about what we wanted & the amount of time we felt was necessary. Never once did we feel pushed to buy more hours or products.

    At the wedding they showed up early, which was great! They got the getting ready photos, pre-wedding toast photos and the anxiously waiting photos. Both photographers were warm, friendly and very caring through out the whole day.

    My daughter is also a professional photographer, but she was in the wedding. She loved the photos, was very impressed with Kay Michaels professionalism & them not being seen. Michael and Wendi were never in the way, but when you see the pictures, you would think they were standing next to you the whole time.

    I received several phone calls over the months from them, asking how the wedding planning was going, what if anything they could do to help me out. Joking with me a little to relieve the stress of wedding planning.

    Their patience was beyond more then I could of asked for, with 5 kids under 8 years old in the wedding party of twenty. The candid pictures are beautiful as well. Michael and Wendi caught the laughter , and the tears of joy. Looking at my photos, there was so many pictures I did not realize were taken, It was a beautiful surprise to see them.

    The experience with them was the greatest, stress free piece to our wedding. They will make you feel like your the only one that matters, like your a friend. I will always recommend them, I will defiantly call Kay Michaels for our anniversary photos and family photos.

    Great service, quality, and staff

    I truly could not give enough praise to Kay Michael Photography. As a team they worked with us to be prepared and to help prepare our bridal party. They took us as a couple and reflected who we are in our wedding photos using our suggestions and enhancing it. They caught many moments of our wedding day we were not able to see ourselves as well. Looking through the photos we are amazed by their beauty and style. We recommend Wendy, Michael, and Toni to everyone we meet and hope to work with them for our future photography needs.

    Michael did such a wonderful job with our photos. We couldn’t be more pleased. The photos were so beautiful and he captured unique, emotional and lovely moments. We continue to receive compliments on our photos. My husband and I both highly recommend Michael!! He is great to work with.

    I would highly recommend Kay Michael Photo!

    They were responsive to our needs and very professional throughout the process. I am also in the wedding business, so these aspects were very important to me. The photos we received are wonderful and their work is so good that we also used Kay Michael for my string quartet! Overall, the experience was great and so easy on our end. The only difficulty is selecting the photos we wanted printed because there are so many great ones. Thank you again Kay Michael!

    Exceeded expectations! Excited for our wedding!

    Wendi, Michael, and Toni are all three extremely helpful and have creative artistic views. My fiancé and I met Wendi and Michael at a wedding show and to be honest, I immediately dismissed them because of the cost but Wendi talked with me and discussed what I was looking for. She also helped make sure I was prepared for talking with other vendors. I feel it was above and beyond since I told her we couldn’t afford them. She asked me to email so we could discuss options. We knew when looking at their photos we wanted them but our budget wasn’t very flexible. They helped to make sure we are able to get what we want and within our budget. Our email exchanges were pleasant and quick, I did not have to wait on responses. We set up an easy payment plan and our engagement session rather easily.

    With a spring wedding we wanted to have our engagement photos taken in the spring as well. Two weeks ago we met with Michael and I told him what I was envisioning. He quickly caught on and went to work making it happen. The hour scheduled together was so easy, even with many other patrons at our photo shoot location. He had plenty of fun and endearing ways to show off our personalities and make sure we were satisfied. I cannot wait to work with him and Wendi at our wedding. I anticipate it to go smoothly just as our engagement shoot did.

    Extremely Pleased

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    We thought you might like feedback on our recent album purchase. We received the two albums separately and before Christmas. We were thrilled with both. Since we couldn’t visit your studio, being so far away in Milwaukee, we had to imagine the product on your photos and descriptions.

    Well, we were extremely happy with both albums, Eve and Matt’s large one and our mini one. The chosen sizes were perfect. Eve and Matthew were thrilled with their album and we loved ours. The quality of both was exceptional and your photo layouts were perfect.

    Thank you so much for your assistance and help giving Eve and Matt a lasting memory of their special day!

    Great Experience! posted 12/16/2014

    Kay Michael Photography did our wedding. These people were great! They took a lot of good pictures for us. They had great ideas for pictures. They came out with us around town to do outdoor pictures, too. We had 2 photographers and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! Very laid back and willing to work with us and the situation. This was our first time getting married and looking for a photographer. So, we didn’t quite know what to expect. They went far above and beyond our expectations! Also, good value for the money.

    Highly Recommend!

    We would highly recommend Kay Michael Photography. What initially caught our attention was the quality of their pictures. The pictures were so colorful, and captured the moment with a realistic look. From setting up our engagement photos to purchasing our wedding album, the staff thought of every detail and were extremely helpful guiding us through the process. The photographers, Michael and Wendy, were friendly and open to our photo ideas, and offered their professional opinion as well. Toni, ran the behind the scenes, and was very patient and so helpful with every detail along the way.

    Kay Michael Photography

    We highly recommend Kay Michael Photography. Mike’s humor and friendly demeanor kept the bridal party and both our families at ease during the whole photography process, resulting in gorgeous, natural (not awkward) portraits. Mike documented our wedding day so well from start to finish with beautiful photos. When we look at our album, we both get emotional reliving the day again. When you’re choosing a wedding photographer, of course you want beautiful portraits to frame, but having visual memories of the little moments during the day is equally important. They will not miss a moment, and you will not be disappointed.

    August Wedding

    The photographer showed up on time, and called the day before our wedding to confirm and ask us if we had any other specifications. Very professional and friendly. All of our family members commented and asked us to see the pictures when they come. Our mothers were very impressed with some of shots that they got to see and really listened to what we wanted. He was extremely personable and easy to talk to. I would recommend Kay Michael for anyone needing pictures for their wedding. We had a small civil ceremony and reception. The pictures were artistic and what we wanted to capture on our wedding day we got them for 3 hours, and we have so many pictures that are good, that we are having a hard time picking which ones we like the most. We originally booked 2 hours but realized that the photographer wouldn’t have any time to get any pictures at the reception, and stayed longer. Thanks for being so flexible!

    Recommend to EVERYONE!

    After interviewing five other photographers, we selected Kay Michael Photo & Video. It was a no-brainer. The other photographers were nice and had great reviews, but walking out of our initial interview with Michael my husband and I thought this would be one of the easiest wedding decisions we would make.

    First of all, they were far more reasonably priced than most other photographers and we got so much more in our package: 2 photographers (which came in handy as we got ready in different locations), the engagement sessions, 3 wedding beautiful and professional albums with the photos we picked (one large for us, 2 small for each set of parents), high res images, and a photo release.

    Every time I emailed them, they got back to us immediately. They answered all questions and we always felt entirely in control.

    Their background is in photojournalism, which means they were very skilled in capturing our whole day in a way that as we look through our pictures, it’s as though we can relive it. Also, since there were two photographers, at least one was with us and the bridal party the entire time and the other could capture our guests for moments we would have otherwise missed.

    Our family and friends were very impressed and several noted that the photographers were everywhere all night! They were capturing every detail.

    Do not settle for inexperience or a photographer that does not make you feel 100% confident that they are the right fit. These are your wedding photos and can never be replaced if they are not done right. Schedule a meeting with them today. I promise you will be impressed and in very skilled hands!

    Kay Michael photography was wonderful.

    Kay Michael photography was wonderful. During the entire process from the time we booked them to now they have been incredibly helpful. They did great work. They listened to what I wanted and gave suggestions when necessary. They kept me calm and gave me one less thing to worry about on my wedding day. Photographers are one of the most expensive parts of a wedding and the price was very reasonable for the quality of work they do.

    I am extremely pleased and impressed.

    As a loyal, satisfied, customer, I have used Kay Michael Photography to capture various, unique, life events, including, my engagement photos and wedding. In addition, it was easy to encourage them to explore more of their creative side with a private calendar shoot for me. Their willingness to collaborate with customers, treating them as real people, not just a number, is what inspires me to keep calling on them to capture my life moments. Most recently, they provided on-site videography and photography support at the airport for my soldier’s homecoming. Michael has an incredibly creative sense in editing videos and telling a story through music. They will not disappoint!

    Excellent, professional, fun, and exactly what photography should be: memorable.

    Kay Michael was fantastic to work with! Throughout the process, there was never pressure and I felt that my needs/interests were far exceeded. Having the two photographers was better than I could have imagined: two people to get twice the stolen moments! My wedding budget wasn’t huge, but photos were ranked high on our list, and Kay Michael helped make that happen. If I had to make the decision again, I would not hesitate to use Kay Michael. Excellent, professional, fun, and exactly what photography should be: memorable.
