Michael Chadwick Photography provides a perfect balance of candid and formal wedding photography, capturing both the story and the joy of each and every wedding. We work hard to ensure you get the best service imaginable, and that you will always consider us your family photographer!

I believe that love transcends ALL boundaries, and I believe in service. I’ve received “Best of Weddings” in The Knot in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 because my couples receive the best in personal, friendly, and thoughtful service. In 2014 I was even inducted into The Knot’s “Best of Weddings Hall of Fame” because I take care of my couples.

What is my philosophy on photographing weddings? I capture the real. I love Love and I absolutely love sharing wedding days with my couples. Love fills our souls with laughter and our hearts with joy, and getting to share the most loving day of a couple’s lives with them is something I never get enough of. Capturing all of that joy and love and laughter and being able to give it to my couples for
them to share for years and years is one of the best jobs I could ever imagine!

    Having a good photographer was crucial to me and my husband. As soon as we had a wedding date and our venues, we started researching photographers. Based on online reviews and the quality of work, my husband and I interviewed three photographers. Michael at Michael Chadwick Photography was the clear winner for both of us. The quality of Mike’s work is clear. We looked at several different weddings he shot and appreciated the mix of detail shots, formal shots, candid shots – all crisp and artistically done. In addition to loving his pictures, Mike was such a pleasure to be with. We felt that he understood what we wanted to capture in our pictures, and he was a joy to be around. He has a calming presence and made us laugh. We had our engagement shoot about 6 months before the wedding. We loved the moments Mike was able to capture, and he was really fun to hang out with. I was thrilled when we got our pictures – they were absolutely beautiful. As our wedding approached we had lots of communication with Mike. I gave him a very detailed list of photos I wanted that day and instead of being offended that I was trying to hamper his artistic view, he welcomed the information. Mike and his second shooter Sheldon arrived ahead of schedule the day of and got right to work. They knew the names of all the principal people at our wedding and were incredibly pleasant to be around. Everyone thought they were great. They worked tirelessly for about 12 hours that day and were always enthusiastic and focused. Having good wedding pictures is crucial in helping to preserve the memories of that day. Mike did a phenomenal job and I would recommend working with him without hesitation. The best part of all is that we found his prices to be very reasonable given the quality product received.

    We hired Michael to be our wedding photographer for our wedding on June 9, 2012. We researched and met several other photographers when we were looking, but I had a good gut feeling about him when I was communicating back and forth via e-mail. We knew he was the right photographer for us when my husband and him bonded over movies, etc on our first meeting and I couldn’t get them to focus! lol He was always really friendly and professional. He responded back to e-mails and questions usually within minutes (faster than any other vendor!!!) which to any Bride planning her wedding we all know is extremely important. Especially if you are making decisions quickly that are based upon other aspects of the day. Originally we did not really want to do an engagement photo shoot because we weren’t really sure where we would use the photos, but he insisted and we were really happy we did. It really gave us some time before the wedding to get comfortable in front of the camera and be comfortable with Michael as well. We booked him for a full day with a second photographer. The 2nd photographer was also amazing. He was calm and friendly and always seemed to be taking photos from all different angles which is what we were really looking for. They both worked their butts off for us (our day started at 10am!) and were still going strong at 10pm. I couldn’t believe how they were not only still standing taking photo’s but still had smiles on their faces because they were having a great time doing it. Michael is a photographer because he truly loves taking photos, which is refreshing and amazing to see, and it shows in his photos. Unlike some other jaded wedding photographers, that show up, take the standard shots, and go home at exactly the minute after their hired time ends. If you’re looking for great photographs taken by a passionate and friendly photographer then Michael Chadwick Photography is your vendor! The prices are also really great, especially for the area. With the research we did, they came in at the most competitive price, and in my opinion with the best photographs.

    Michael photographed our wedding in New York City in June 2012. He came recommended from another friend and we couldn’t be happier! From the start, he was a pleasure to work with, explained his process carefully and listened to what we wanted. We did photos in several locations around the city and he was great in coming up with ideas and practical suggestions to make the most of our time together. I received so many compliments from guests after the wedding how much they enjoyed interacting with Michael. The photos were done in less than a month and were gorgeous! We love looking at them and he truly created memories that will last a lifetime. Michael has a great, easy-going demeanor and was very approachable and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend him.

    I cannot recommend Michael Chadwick Photography highly enough. From the first meeting to the final delivery of our photos I knew I was interacting with a pro. My husband and I had a fairly non-traditional wedding and despite some day-of changes (we were supposed to get married on the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island, Brooklyn but the fresh paint on the wheel hadn’t dried so we moved the ceremony to the boardwalk) Michael Chadwick handled everything with a smile and made me feel relaxed and confident. He even made my mother want to take photos! And when we sat down to look over the prints I was speechless. His work is amazing and I am so grateful. He captured our day and personalities perfectly. I laughed and cried while looking through the photos and keep going back to them, thinking I dreamed how great they are or am still in that “post-wedding glow”. No. He is just that good. I also booked hair and make-up through him and I have to say, I’ve never felt more beautiful, more glamorous. That is, until I saw the way Michael captured me during the wedding. Beyond the breathtaking photos and awesome shots of our friends and family shaking it on the dance floor (including a fantastic shot of me in mid-air, how does he DO THAT??), Michael was so accommodating, so joyous and so … calm. It was like having another, dear friend celebrate with us. I am so very glad he was our photographer. Thank you, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

    Michael was excellent on the day of our wedding. He was very attentive making sure to get every shot. Before the day of the ceremony we were able to organize and discuss every possible shot that we may have wanted on the day of our wedding. Michael was very happy to accommodate all of our requests. We are very happy with the end result. We were very happy with our engagement photography as well. We really wanted our engagement photography to take place in two locations. We took pictures in central park and long beach, long island. All of pictures from both locations came out extremely beautiful. Any events that I have in the future I will definitely call Michael to see if he is available to work his magic. He was the absolute best!

    I am so in love with my wedding photos that I’ve become the girl who tries to show them to people in line at any store! Michael Chadwick is the reason for that! He is a very knowledgeable photographer and knew the best lighting, backdrop, and positions for our photos. I was especially impressed with his professionalism. He’s very efficient and accessible. He responded promptly to my emails and suggestions for must-have photos. He’s willing to work with you and achieve the shots you want, so you let him know exactly what you like and don’t like. Also, not only is he very reasonably priced, but we received our CD in the mail and access to our photos online within two weeks after the wedding. Planning a wedding is not an easy task! If you are looking for high quality photos without the hassle, I would strongly recommend Michael Chadwick Photography! Thank you Michael, we have beautiful pictures to remember our amazing day!

    I cannot say enough about Michael Chadwick, Michael Chadwick Photography. When I first set out to enlist vendors, my main request was anyone who attended my wedding feel like a guest since I wanted a low-key, family friendly atmosphere.We exchanged emails and met in person one time, and I never once felt compelled to shop around for someone else to photograph our big day. Michael truly became another guest with a camera, and completely captured the essence of what I imagined our day to be all about. All our pictures have a natural, in the moment feel, and that was exactly what I hoped for. I was nervous about any staged shots, I feel so unnatural staging poses, but Michael had us all at ease, laughing and enjoying ourselves that at times, I forgot we were being photographed, it felt so simple! We were absolutely thrilled with the finished product-the zenfolio, the DVD, even the case for the DVD! Every time I think I found my favorite picture, I find 3, 4, 5 more! I highly recommend Michael Chadwick Photography to anyone looking for great quality and service on your very special day!

    Michael has a wonderful feeling for the couple: mine came from Holland to get married here in the City. He made them feel important and cared for since they had neither family nor friends with them. And the rainy day caused its own problems, but not for Michael! The couple got gorgeous pictures, and the wedding planner in Holland feels comfortable to book him again. Good luck, Michael, and my best wishes.

    We hired Michael for our wedding in NYC. Coming from the UK it was really important to have the contact before to ensure that all would run smoothly. We could not have been happier with the service that Mike (the photographer) provided. He was personable, attentive, understanding and provided humor throughout his time with us. There was not one person in the wedding party who was not impressed or did not comment on how impressed they were with our choice. Thank you for capturing such an important moment in our lives. We have recently received the photos, they are fantastic and I would highly recommend this service.

    Mike Chadwick is great!! He worked out a great package for us, that was perfect for our budget. He is super talented, and chooses to work with very talented people as well. When Creative Chadwick Arts came to shoot the photos day of my wedding, they were professional, courteous and on schedule. Since then we have seen our pictures and they are more beautiful than I could have imagined they would be! Super talented!! I highly recommend!

    From the moment I called Michael to ask initial questions and see if he was available to the time he sent our disc of photos, he was professional, personable and wonderful! He took superb photos before, during and after the ceremony and during the dinner. He put everyone at ease throughout the day! Every guest said he was wonderful. Michael never got in the way at any point. We have been enjoying his spectacular photography since April. Michael, thanks for capturing all those moments! It is fun going through all the photos and saying wow, I did not remember that moment!

    We hired Michael Chadwick of Michael Chadwick Photography to take photos at our wedding on April 22, 2012 and to do an engagement shoot. After meeting with Michael the first time to look at some of his work, we decided to hire him. Not only was his portfolio fantastic, but we could tell right away that he was going to be amazing to work with. He truly had a passion for photography, but was also receptive to ideas about what types of photos we wanted taken (too many photographers have a cookie-cutter system of the type of photos that they like to shoot – not Michael Chadwick!). Here, we knew we would be getting personal attention. We had our engagement shoot in Central Park. Michael spent a lot of time with us, wandering around the park for that perfect shot – luckly we got many of them! My husband and I were both a little nervous and not really experienced with having professional photos taken, but Michael made it such fun! We spent all morning laughing. At the same time, he got some wonderful pictures of my husband and I just enjoying each other’s company. Before the wedding, Michael had us complete a questionnaire about who in particular we wanted photos with, who was traveling from long distances etc. I was amazed the day of that he had gotten everyone down and recognized very quickly who everyone was. At the end of the day, he was pointing out to me the people that I had yet to take photos with who were on his list. He has a knack for remembering faces and names and picked up right away on the people that were closest to us. Many of our guests commented about how nice he was, and how he seemed to float in and out to get a picture but not be in the way. My mother in law in particular loved him (as did my husband and I). I guess all I can say in closing is that if you want a top notch photographer with a great personality (and great customer service skills!), Michael Chadwick is your man! Thank you Michael! Michael was so nice and easy to work with. He is very responsive to email and will answer any question that you have about pictures, lighting, angles, etc. no matter how trivial.

    From the first meeting Michael has felt like a close friend or family member. He is so nice to work with and on top of EVERYTHING! A few weeks before our wedding, he even emailed to notify us of a “super moon” occurring the night of our celebration. We just received the pictures back and they could not be more perfect! We absolutely love and highly recommend!!
