I have been performing wedding services either as a photographer or as an officiant since 2008. Hundreds of weddings over those many years has given me the kind of trusted experience you want in a vendor.

In 2008 I photographed at three weddings just to dip my feet in the water to see how I would like it. I loved it. By 2010 I was photographing dozens of them, often more than 60 each year.

In 2014 I became ordained. I wanted to play a more active role in the wedding ceremonies I love so much. Now I perform dozens of custom wedding ceremonies and elopements each year.

My fees are very affordable given my extensive experience in the industry, and the attentive care I give to each and every one of my couples.

If this is the only sentence you read of this review, just know that if you book Michael Chadwick to be your wedding photographer, it’ll be the best decision you could make regarding your special day (or any other event you’re hoping to hire him for). We first met Michael two years ago, when he helped my now husband plan the perfect proposal at Grounds for Sculpture. Josh and Michael went to the location a few days beforehand to scope out the layout and on the day of, in extreme heat, he literally hid in the bushes to capture the moment. We knew that very day we wanted him to be our wedding photographer. Michael is not only extremely talented, but his compassion, knowledge, and kindness separate him from any other vendor we have ever worked with. Michael and Christopher make an incredible team and were an absolute pleasure to work with the day-of. Michael also did a great job communication with us leading up to the wedding and on the day of literally had everything we could have ever needed (safety pins, stain stick, etc.). He even helped my bridesmaids bustle my dress. Michael truly made our wedding go as smooth as possible, and we cannot begin to thank him enough as he will forever be a part of our special day.

Michael did a perfect job officiating our wedding. The entire process was so easy. From our initial calls, to working on the script he put together, to helping my now wife with her vows on the wedding day, Michael was so helpful and easy to work with every step of the way. We had an idea of what we wanted in a ceremony, and Michael took our loose ideas and absolutely nailed it. The ceremony he put together for us was absolutely perfect. It felt like he had known us our entire lives. We had several guests ask where we found such a great officiant and comment on what a great job he did. We weren’t putting a huge emphasis on our ceremony, as we had always wanted a ceremony on the shorter side, but it ended up being one of the highlights of the day. We’ll treasure those moments for the rest of our lives, and Michael is to thank for that. We’re absolutely thrilled with our ceremony and we would recommend Michael to anyone without a doubt!!

When you book Michael as the photographer for your wedding, he’s not just your photographer – he becomes family for the day. And that’s exactly what you want! He was amazing! To be honest, I really didn’t give him a lot of information to work with beforehand because I didn’t know what kind of photos I would want. But of course he worked hi magic and I can tell just from the small preview that we received, we are going to be thrilled. My guests are still taking about how awesome he and Chris were throughout the night. They were always there to get the perfect photo. We can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures! Thank you, Michael and team for everything! We would recommend Chadwick Weddings to everyone!

My ceremony was my favorite part of my entire wedding day and it is all thanks to Michael Chadwick! I wish that I had a reason to use him again because he was so charismatic, caring, and fun to talk to and he is great at what he does. I will ABSOLUTELY be recommending him to anyone I can. My ceremony in my husband and my eyes could not have been any more perfect. When he emailed us the ceremony script he wrote we didn’t change a thing, he nailed it the first time around. We sent him bullet points of tv shows we liked, movies we liked, details about our relationship and I was amazed at how beautifully he incorporated everything. He really got to know us as a couple and our ceremony was a perfect representation of us and our love. Thank you Michael for making our wedding day so special and truly a day I will never forget. 10/10 would recommend!!!
