Michael Nesgoda doesn't sell photos, he sells a one-of-a-kind photography experience.
"I can't share enough how fantastic our experience was working with Michael Nesgoda to capture our wedding! I mean...look at these amazing pictures!!! From our first conversation and throughout our experience, we have felt a warm personal touch wrapped around an exceptional level of professionalism that gave us 100% confidence in his ability to deliver beyond our expectations! He spent time with us to understand our vision for the event and walked us through a plan that fit exactly what we needed (and helped us exclude what we didn't need).
We specifically appreciated the micro-wedding option, as it fit our 25-person intimate ceremony...although from the pictures it looks like we had a royal wedding. Michael brought a level of artistry and magic, with a beautiful eye for natural lighting and camera angles, that captured so many small moments and big emotions. We can't recommend him enough and we look forward to working with him in the future to capture more life events!"

As a professional wedding photographer, biz owner, and most importantly... a person, one of the most important aspects of my job is communication. Let's get in touch and talk over the phone, or better yet, meet up for coffee or drinks. This way we can get to know each other, answer any questions, and start to build the type of connection that will lead to incredible pictures.
