Testimonials

Michael is a Wizard with Kids!
  • Tom + Rachel & Family

  • Family

Michael is a true pleasure to work with – professional, fun and has a real eye for quality. Best of all, he just has a magic touch when it comes to getting kids to feel natural in front of the camera. We have had our couples, maternity, newborn (he came TO the hospital!), and family photos taken by Michael and will always have him as our photographer! A true gem!

World Class Wedding Photographer
  • Jen + Sean

  • Wedding Clients

Michael was our wedding photographer and did an INCREDIBLE job. We loved his natural and candid style. He came prepared for the big day and was great at communicating beforehand. He has such a genuine and down-to-earth personality, which always put us at ease and impressed our family and friends. He also made an itinerary and visited our venue on his own time before the event. One of our favorite things is that he posts ~10 preview shots within 24 hours of your wedding. We loved sharing them with our family the next day! Not only that, but he has different packages to fit your needs, which all include the rights to your photos as well as an online gallery. Overall, he loves his craft and we were so glad to have him with us on our special day!

MHP will always be our Photographer
  • Abigail

  • Client

I cannot begin to express how wonderful and professional MHP is. We met Michael at the St. Croix Valley Wedding Showcase in 2014 and immediately thought his photographs were a special. After visiting with him for a bridal consult, we knew he was going to be a great fit for us. His relaxed and calming personality is perfect for any couple on a wedding day and the way he interacts with everyone is what sets him apart from every other photographer I’ve seen. I now hire him for all our family photography needs and have referred him to other couples and families!

Our Wedding Photos are Amazing!

  • Wedding Clients

If you are thinking of booking Michael Hamerlind for your wedding photography, then you definitely should. Michael has all of the qualities a bride and groom would want in a wedding photographer. Our wedding pictures were perfect and the candid shots he took of our guests were amazing. Michael was flexible with our needs to add more time to our photography package and our wedding and engagement pictures were back in a timely manner. He even went the extra mile to hand deliver our flash drive of photos to our front door. On our wedding day, he was timely, professional, and worked well with our wedding party. My husband and I would highly recommend Michael for your wedding photography needs.

We love you Michael!

  • Mom

Michael has captured majority of our family photos over the last 4 years. Our kids always look forward to seeing him again and he really helps them to have fun and smile big for the camera. We love his work and are always pleased with his ideas and fun candid shots. As a father himself, he knows kids and helps them to warm up to the camera and let them be themselves, and then captures their personality perfectly! We love you Michael!

Senior Pictures
  • Kim

  • Mom

Michael does an amazing job. My son was less than excited to have senior pictures taken and by the time we were done, Michael had him at ease, relaxed, and he was having a great time. He has a great eye and the finished pictures are wonderful!

We will recommend him again and again!
