Photographic Dreams Reviews


The Wedding Wire Couples' Choice Awards recognize the top 5% of local wedding professionals on Wedding-Wire that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism. Winners are selected solely based on reviews from more than a million newlyweds and are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: overall rating, total number of reviews, review performance from 2017, and consistency of reviews from year to year.

"Look NO MORE - this is the professional you've been looking for! Michael is a regular at Mountain Lake and ALWAYS goes above and beyond for our Brides and Grooms. His "can do" attitude is so refreshing, his package pricing is very competitive and the final results always leave a smile on his client's face :) - Lyndsi Hale, Marketing Director @ MLL

"Michael was very professional, creative, accommodating, an excellent value, and reliable. He put us all at ease right from the start. He was creative and also open for any ideas we had. Michael is very humble and kind, the value you get for his services and talent are of the utmost highest standard". - Mrs. Alexandria Showalter


“Michael is the only part of the first wedding that I wanted to carry over into my second wedding. He is so creative! The caliber of his work is on par with photographers that charge at least double what he charges.” – Dr. Angelica Perry

"Our family and friends can't stop talking about them and say they are the most beautiful pictures they've ever seen! We would HIGHLY recommend Mike to anyone! And if you have a crazy idea, like getting in the water in your wedding dress, he's all for it! He'll even get in the water with you to make sure he gets the most beautiful moments!! Thanks again Mike! You're amazing!!" - Heather & Devin Griles
