"If you want THE BEST...choose Mike Topham Photography!! Professional, unobtrusive, and so positive and kind when nerves and anxiety are heightened by wedding day time schedule!! The photos tell the tale!! Beautiful shots with photographic artistry!!"

 - Danielle Bucci

"Mike and his daughter Ellen did a FANTASTIC job shooting our wedding! They were so enthusiastic, incredibly kind, very easy to work with, and stayed positive through the entire day and night. My husband and I absolutely love our wedding pictures and can't stop looking at them! Highly recommend the Topham's!"

- Chuck Vugteveen

"Mike and Nancy did such a great job. Not just pretty photos, but captured the full vibe of the day! Not sure how they did it, but they did it. They were in the middle of everything, but never in the way of anything. Great job!"

- Bidit Mary

"Absolutely, without a doubt, the best of the best. Mike and his team were such a pleasure to work with - kind; enthusiastic; flexible; and truly passionate about what they do. They captured our day perfectly - elegant and natural; both refined and relaxed. They were there for all of the important moments and yet never felt intrusive. We absolutely LOVED sharing our day with them and are already singing their praises to everyone we know up and down the East coast. They bring joy, enthusiasm, and love to what they do and we truly benefited from that talent and passion throughout our wedding day and now with the beautiful aftermath!"

- Jenna Overby

"Mike and Ellen shot my wedding and I could not be any happier. From planning out pictures ahead of time to seeing great shots throughout the event, they captured our day perfectly. They are both extremely professional and likeable people. My entire family raved about how well they did before we even received our pictures. The pictures definitely didn’t disappoint! They are better than I ever imagined and I 100% recommend the Topham’s for any event. Thank you both for everything! We greatly appreciate it!"

- Lauren Naccarato

"Mike and Nancy did an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL job capturing everything that we could have asked for on our wedding day at The Mill at Fine Creek. They are so personable and flexible with everything that it truly makes taking pictures with them so much fun!! Definitely a well-deserved 5-star rating and MORE!"

- Mary Goslee

"Without a doubt, the best wedding pictures that I've ever seen. I'm not saying that because they are my pictures. Mike and his team don't over edit pictures or use unauthentic filters. The pictures are real and genuine. He captured every angle of our wedding day from start to finish and we are so happy with every single picture. Thank you Mike, I can't even pick my favorite because there are so many."

- Phebe Elliott

"Mike and Ellen did a phenomenal job capturing our love in our engagement pictures and then our wedding ceremony and reception!! We highly recommend Mike Topham Photography. Mike is so personable and easy to work with. He did everything we asked for and more. We never knew they were even there taking pictures. They are very professional and customer service driven. Mike works extremely well with Mary Jane Spagnolo at The Manor House. Everything was perfect. Mike captured the Ahha moments we never saw during the wedding. The expressions and genuine emotions were captured in every photo. We love Mike Topham!!"

- Reagan Bond Espensen

"Mike was a dream to work with. He was willing to do whatever it takes to get amazing photos that we will treasure forever. He also has such a joy for what he does that really makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. From the moment we saw our engagement photos we knew we had hired the right guy to capture one of the most important moments in our lives, our wedding. With the help of his daughter Nancy, I felt like they were able to truly capture every moment I hoped for at our wedding. They were both so easy to work with. Thank you for making our special day so perfect and for allowing us to have beautiful ways to remember it daily through your work!"

- Shelly Kinsey

"Absolutely beautiful photography. Our wedding photos are everything we expected and more! Mike and Nancy were wonderful to work with and made our day even more special. Highly recommend!!! 5 stars all day!"
