We cannot say enough good things about Michael Escobar Photography. I was blessed with a very involved groom, and he was in charge of choosing our photographer. Wedding photos are a huge deal, and it was tough for this micro-managing bride to relinquish control of that decision. My, oh my am I glad I did.
From their very first phone conversation, my husband and Michael hit it off. It was so important for us to have a photographer that we could have fun with. We wanted our pictures to show real, candid moments, and we wanted to be able to have those moments in front of our photographer. Michael and Erin inspired those moments.
They arrived on site early, full of energy, and with a million photo ideas for a venue that they were just seeing in person for the first time. They were so cool and relaxed for what could’ve been an incredibly stressful day. Their mood was contagious.
We had four junior attendants; ages four, two, two and 18 months. They were a chaotic handful, rushing around Michael as he was trying to capture the formal posed shots of our wedding party. He handled the kids like a champ and was awesome at getting them to look at the camera when they were in the shot. On a few occasions Michael would say, “Hold on, there’s a kid doing something cute over there.” And he would rush off and get it on camera.
One of my favorite fun memories from the wedding is of Michael, out on the dance floor with all of our close friends and family, holding a camera in my maid of honor’s face, snapping hundreds of photos of her workin the dance floor. Michael and Erin became part of the party, part of the family.
We woke up the morning after the wedding to two photos from Michael. I seriously cried when I saw them; they were so beautiful. We’re 17 day newlyweds, and I squeal with excitement every time I see a new notification that says, “Michael Escobar tagged you….” or “You have a new email from Michael Escobar.” The few photos we’ve received each week are such savory appetizers for what’s to come.
Of all the vendors we worked with to make our wedding happen, Michael Escobar Photography was undoubtedly the favorite.
