Kind Words

All we can say is “WOW!” Dia captured every precious moment of our day! All the ones that we remembered and ones we didn’t even realize we missed. Her photographs are beautiful and classic. Dia’s attention to detail and her creative spark really came through in our pictures. Thank you so much Dia! We love our wedding album!!!

"Michael and Dia are incredible. We had fun all day, they were flexible and understanding, and they took time to make sure we got the shots we wanted. They were funny, professional, and in the end, they felt like family. I would give Michael and Dia the highest recommendation. Thank you for making our day so special!!"

Our wedding was a semi-large, very complicated Nigerian-Jamaican palooza. M&D served us impeccably every step of the way. These are the photographers you want on your team, hands down.

Out of all of the professional-grade photographers we looked at, Michael & Dia offered us the most affordable full wedding package that included engagement photos. The quality of their work was so high, our engagement photos got featured in a issue of Offbeat Bride.

Our day-of wedding coordinator was a disaster. But M&D were so on top of the schedule, THEY ended up stepping in to help people know where they were supposed to be and made sure things ran smoothly (which was totally not their job, they were just incredibly gracious).

I kept hearing from guests that Michael and Dia were super accommodating with photo requests & even let the guests peek at their cameras to see cute pictures of themselves.

They handled our complicated shindig with flying colors. We couldn't be more satisfied.

Dia and Michael were amazing! We used them for our wedding and the pictures came out PERFECT! I generally hate taking pictures but they were both super accommodating and understanding. They were efficient, professional, but also personal and a lot of fun. They're just really genuine people who take some amazing photographs. Can't recommend them enough. Honestly, working with them throughout the day was one of our favorite parts of the whole wedding, as ridiculous as that sounds. We had a ton of fun and were laughing the whole time. You're going to spend a lot of time with your photographer the day-of, so it's important that a) they can take some damn good pictures and b) you actually like them...Dia and Michael fit the bill perfectly!
