Rachael and Aaron Slide Show (14)“Where do I begin?! This guy is awesome! Not only does he take amazing photos, but he helped calm me down the morning of my wedding when all of the power went out at the place we’re supposed to get ready at! Everyone at the wedding loved him and thought he was so nice. He’s very professional and just a great person all around. We can’t wait to get all of our photos back, and are looking forward to the beautiful photo album he’ll give us with our prints!”

Mairi-12-2“Wonderful quality for a great price! They asked a lot of questions of me the day of my wedding, which I found very stressful, but I think it was well worth it for the price I paid, which was literally a fraction of what other photographers charge.”

“MichaSlide Show-14el and Christine at Toscana Photography were incredible to work with! We really appreciated Michael’s zeal for photography and his energetic approach to getting the perfect shot! He was extremely available to us, and usually responded to any emails or communications almost instantly. One of Michael’s trademarks is explaining why a photo works, and he is great at exploring different lighting options to make the perfect photo.

Michael and Christine did our engagement photo shoot and photographed our wedding. They were so pleasant to work with, and we loved that they were totally understanding and responsive to our requests! Michael and Christine were very punctual, reliable, creative, and collaborative. They also had a great sense of humor, which is so important during stressful situations like a wedding!

They are newlyweds themselves, and we loved that they seemed to be reliving moments of their own wedding as we went through our day. It was great to know that they understood and could even relate! They were fantastic to work with, and we would highly recommend them!!”

Slide Show-18“The way Michael presented the photos in the box with our photo, name and date on the cover – and the way he presented the thumb drive with the photo of our rings and the opening song we chose – was amazing and touching. Mark and I viewed all the photos and the slide show and it brought back the fabulous moments. Michael did a wonderful job in capturing our happiness. Thank you, Michael, for the countless hours you poured into this project. My husband and I have already recommended Toscana Photography to others and wish them every success.”

Maureen and Kevin (85)“My husband and I were extremely pleased with the photographs Michael took of our wedding. He was courteous, professional, prompt, and thorough, and he made the experience fun and enjoyable! He was open to our suggestions and provided several out-of-the-box ideas of his own. We ended up with a great mix of posed and spontaneous shots that really captured our emotions that day.”

“I had this grand idea to propose to my fiancé in a nice park on the water in Old Town Alexandria, VA. The only catch was that I was currently living in NJ and did not know manLiz and Andrew Engagement-21y nice locations around Alexandria. To top it off, at the last minute my photographer backed out on me. That’s where Michael and Toscana Photography came in. I contacted a few photographers and Michael was the first one to respond, very promptly. I explained my situation to him over the phone and he immediately came up with a plan and even offered me different locations around Alexandria that he thought would make for great photos.  On the day of the engagement, Michael and his wife met with me an hour beforehand to scope out the location.  He and his wife even played along, and pretended to be having a picnic, so as to not tip off my fiancé with what was about to happen.  When the moment came, I dropped down to one knee and Michael took the absolute best photo of us to capture our special moment. After the proposal, Michael suggested we walk around Old Town and have a photo session. You should have seen my fiancé’s eyes light up. During the photos, Michael and his wife made both my fiancé and I feel very  comfortable. Michael is very personable and always made us laugh at that right moment. We will always cherish the photos that Michael made possible. Toscana photography turned my idea into a reality. To top it off, he and his wife also gave us great restaurant recommendations!! I would highly recommend Toscana Photography for any occasion and will definitely be using Michael for any of our future events.”
