“We love Mike Greener!!!! He is an amazing photographer & person. His easy going/personable demeanor is what you would definitely want on your wedding day! All of our communication prior to the wedding was through phone & email. Meeting him for the 1st time on the day of the wedding, I felt like he was an old friend. He definitely puts you at ease and isn’t all up in your face! I appreciated how he let the day flow organically and was there to capture those magical in the moment-moments; which is exactly what we wanted!”
“Mike was the first to arrive at the ranch on the wedding day, lucky enough to encounter the black bear on the property. He scouted out the property and the day began. His personality is, for lack of a better word, perfect for the job he does. He is personable, fun and easy which makes the “photographed” feel at ease and natural, making for successful and flattering photographs. His documentary style is unique and exciting.
His photographs are very alive and dynamic. I wasn’t able to be everywhere at once, but through his photographs, I feel like I can share a bit more in everyones celebration. Mike is the one for capturing facial expressions and emotions.
Mike was amazing at not only being invisible when needed (during the ceremony), but also has a talent for working with all the family members. He knows what compositions he wants, he knows how to ask for them and he gets results quickly, so our guests didn’t have to wait all that long! big plus for everyone. Having said that, he was more than happy to oblige our every need, desire and request. His only downfall was that I wanted to hang out with him more, but he was “on the job”. I know I speak for my husband and Mother when I say I am indebted to Mike for doing the job that I had hoped for.
Picking a photographer can be daunting, as the market seems to be flooded these days.
In conclusion, the three words I’d pick to describe Mike as a wedding photographer would be; comfortable, perceptive and prepared.”
“We were so lucky to have Mike be our photographer for our Colorado Wedding Weekend! He did an amazing job of making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera while getting the best shots. He even took a few rolls on the ground to get different angles. All of the wedding party loved having him around. We flew Mike all the way out to Colorado for our wedding because we heard what an awesome job he does…and let me tell you he didn’t disappoint!! Very professional, very high quality, and at the same time captured different aspects of our wedding that amazed my wife and I. I would highly recommend Mike for any event, not just weddings. Since I won’t be getting married again, I plan to have him do our photos for the rest of life’s adventures!”

“Mike, You have an uncanny ability to capture the action and emotion of every moment with beautiful images. And in addition to giving us wonderful pictures, you were great to work with. We appreciate how your were able to incorporate our ideas and preferences, and really went the extra mile to be sure we were happy. The photo-booth was awesome and gave us some of the most hilarious photos and great memories of our friends. Thanks for setting it up. In addition, we liked how you weren’t obtrusive in any way, either during the ceremony, the reception, or any of the other parts of our day-long event. You were a comfortable guy to be around, and have a great sense of how to slip into the background when you needed to. All in all, I’m so glad we picked you to do our wedding. From the preparation, through the big day, and to the final delivery of a wonderfully edited album, it was clear that you care a lot about your photography work. We would recommend you to anyone!”
“Working with Mike Greener was a great experience. Obviously, I had never had my own wedding photographer before, but my husband and I had been to plenty of weddings and understood what we did not want in a photographer. I thought Mike Greener did a perfect job shooting our wedding. His approach seemed seamless to me and Mike blended in so well with the guests. We didn’t have too many ideas of what we wanted, but Mike always seemed to have a plan and we found him to be super helpful. We knew we wanted someone relaxed that could be sent off into the crowd and really capture what our friends and family are about.
When I went through the pictures just few days after the wedding, nothing was missing. Mike was there from the beginning. The traditional photos with family and the wedding party were an enjoyable experience and did not take a lot of time so we could still enjoy the cocktail party. I love the pictures of the wedding party getting ready, kids running all over the place, and he even got some great shots of the dog. Mike got the preparation, the walk down the aisle, the kiss, happy family members smiling after the ceremony, the dancing and speeches. I see something new every time I look through my wedding photos. Mike Greener was fun and laid back. The perfect wedding guest and a really nice guy with a great eye for what our Montana wedding was all about. When the light was falling behind the Bitterroot Mountains, Mike made sure he found John and I in the crowd and pulled us away for some of my favorite photos – you can totally count on him for something wonderful.”
“Mike Greener is an amazing photographer, and a talented photojournalist. He captured so many candid, special moments during our wedding day. He even noticed small things, such as the flower girl playing with her necklace and the groomsman wearing three top hats at the reception. Mike is easy-going and fun to work with. He listened to our requests to understand what we wanted out of having the wedding photographed. He balanced the needs of the guests with those of the bride and groom to take the right number of posed and candid shots. After the wedding, Mike created a gorgeous wedding photo album for us. His photos show the story of our wedding day, and we’re happy to have worked with him!”

“We were fortunate to have Mike document our wine country wedding and we were absolutely thrilled with the results! From first contact Mike showed the utmost willingness to seek out and deliver the very essence of our wedding experience through hard work and fine attention to detail. After sixteen months of wedding planning I had a very clear vision for our big day and Mike did such a fantastic job tuning in to not only what we wanted, but more importantly, what we did not want for our photos. The final product was spot on! Rather than being stuck with stuffy “classic” wedding pictures, Mike was able to capture all of the candid moments throughout our ceremony and reception.We never felt that he was “in the way” or disrupting the natural flow of the afternoon and he did such a great job connecting with our guests. Thanks to Mike, every time I look at our photos I am immediately taken back to the special moments and I can feel all the love and happiness we were surrounded with on our special day.”

“I will say that I was – and still am – incredibly impressed by the approach Mike Greener took towards photographing our wedding. He did such a splendid job. Neither Peter or I followed the “traditional” way of doing things at our wedding. Mike was incredible at capturing both the traditional and non-traditional aspects of the occasion. His attention to the details is what set him apart from the rest. Children and adults playing, the shot of our hands with our rings, etc. He really has an eye for intimate moments.
From the photos he took of everyone getting ready to the creative twist he on put on those of the party afterward, he was never invasive or annoying. Mike was all over the place, part of the crowd, friendly, and respectful. Mike Greener is an incredibly talented photographer and I feel blessed that we were able to have him at our wedding.”
