These are real reviews from real clients raving about their headshot/branding/event photography experience. You can also check out my 100% five-star reviews on Google.

"Mike went above and beyond in our headshot session. He cared very much about making sure we captured the shots I needed. He took extra time and was very communicative and kind. And the shots turned out BEAUTIFULLY. I would highly recommend Mike Styer Photography!"

- Jennie Eisenhower, Barrymore award-winning actress

"I was going through a professional transition and knew I needed exceptional headshots, something more stylized to my work in the nonprofit world. I wanted them to tell my story, not just make me look good (they did that too). I scheduled a session with Mike Styer and the results were amazing. He took the time to understand who I am which reflected in the work. Just like going to a professional hair stylist you trust, everyone needs a great photographer."

- Tracy, business professional

"We hired Mike for our office corporate headshots and he was fantastic! The photos turned out great and everyone was very pleased with the entire process. Highly recommended!"

- Griffin, business professional

"Mike took my picture for my medical residency application. I first found him on a website listing the top portrait photographers in the Philadelphia area and was not disappointed! After comparing prices and picture quality from multiple photographers around the country I decided to go with Mike. His prices are very reasonable given the quality of his photos and he works with you to get exactly the look you want. I have had bad experiences with professional photography in the past where I felt very rushed and didn’t get to review any images. Mike was very kind and let me adjust my hair, outfit, etc without rushing me, and he made sure I was happy with the photos before I left. He is also extremely knowledgeable about his trade - he had a lot of tips and was able to tailor my photo to the type of residency program I was interested in. The turnaround time was very fast, and I got my images much sooner than I anticipated. For something as important as a first impression to a residency program or a job application I would 100% recommend Mike! I feel much more confident about the type of impression my application will make."

- Hanel, medical residency applicant/doctor

"Without a doubt, Mike is the best portrait photographer in the Philly area. He is INCREDIBLY skilled and knows how to make his clients feel relaxed. I've never enjoyed having my pictures taken, but with Mike, it's so much fun. He has the most infectious energy, and knows how to bring out your inner beauty and joy. It's clear in everything he does that he wants his clients to be happy. And for the quality of photos, his prices are absolutely fair. I refuse to get my photos done by anyone else!"

- Farah Rishi, author

"Mike did a fantastic job for my professional headshot. Everything went out smoothly during the shot. Mike sent me the photo within a week since I need it ASAP. I am satisfied with the retouched photo. I would highly recommend him!"

- Cloris

"Everything about Mike Styer Photography is amazing! He is super quick in responses and extremely detailed in his communications. He immediately makes everyone at ease in his studio and brings out the best in those he is photographing. And the final product is just amazing. Highly recommend!!"

- Tracey

"I have done several headshot sessions with Mike Styer Photography, and I highly recommend them! I’ve never worked with a photographer who makes you feel so comfortable and confident in your own skin. Mike has a wonderful way of making you look AND feel your best, and it’s obvious from the first moment of the session that he cares about his clients. He caters each session specifically to you as a person, working hard to capture YOUR true self. Mike is a natural, and his easygoing personality makes his sessions fun and full of laughter! I recommend MSP to all my actor friends, and even my business friends who need a professional headshot. 10/10 would recommend!"

- Emily, actress

I am a family/bridal photographer, and am always amazed at Mike's headshots. No one can hold a candle to Mike when it comes to his detail, ability to capture expression and ease in which he does this. We HAD to book him and I am so glad we did! Mike is professional, creative and puts you at ease. My son was nervous, being only 9, he did not know what to expect. His only experience outside of Mom's photos are school photos - which are not always super fun. The entire headshot session process with Mike, in his beautiful studio space, was fun, from the shoot (complete with music) to the actual photo selection process. He is an excellent photographer and human.

- Lauren, photographer

"I am a recent client of Mike’s and I was beyond impressed by his welcoming, yet professional demeanor. He didn’t rush a thing, and I got the most out of my time with him. He really knows how to talk to you to get the best shots. At one point I thought to myself “this guy is going to be huge one day.” I’m so happy I went with Mike Styer Photography, and if you're a serious professional, I highly recommend him. Thank you Mike!"

- Jonathan, actor

I really enjoyed my photo session with Mike. He was professional and very personable. Made me feel relaxed right away and provided clear directions that resulted in some great headshots. I liked his suggestions on which photos to select. I feel that I received great value from Mike.

- Bill, business professional

"It had been several years since I had sat for headshots, and I wouldn’t have known where to even start…Mike expertly handles the full range of photographic demands, from location publicity shoots to group events to live performances. But his talent shines equally as bright working one-on-one. For this type of work, he has a beautiful studio that is easily accessible, comfortable, and surrounded by natural beauty. From the moment you arrive, Mike instantly puts you at ease, as if welcoming you into his home. His passion and excitement is infectious, and he knows how to make the experience fun, which goes a long way to ensuring his subject gets the absolute most out of their session. The only difficult part for me was deciding which headshot was the best!"

- Michael, Actor and ER Doctor

"Mike Styer is truly a photography wizard! Aside from being a technical genius with all aspects of photography, I think the special ingredient to his headshots is that he has an innate ability to see and capture the best in his clients, highlighting the beauty that lies within. He makes everyone he photographs have so much fun and feel at such ease in front of his camera that their best selves can shine. I have truly never seen a more gifted headshot photographer!"

- Lauren McComas, owner + artistic director of
SALT Performing Arts and Stagelight

"You made me feel so comfortable for my first time getting professional shots. I loved all the different angles and poses we tried out. The lighting in all the shots was gorgeous. You were comforting and put together. Thank you."

- Francesca, Actress

"The whole team was very happy with the pictures they received and the overall experience from the time-slot selection, to the headshot session, to accessing the photos online. Your energy and attention to detail was excellent. It was perfect for what could have been a super boring office headshot sessions. Even the fact that you came to check out the location prior to the day of the shoot was great!"
- Jeff of Philadelphia Real Estate How Real Estate

"You made Stephen and I feel at ease and confident through the whole shoot. And we are thrilled with the photos. I appreciate how organized you are. You have a plan, but it is great fun to see when you have creative moments as well. I received previews quickly and I love the blog! You have a gift when it comes to capturing the many sides of your clients personalities. I was able to look through our photos and see more than great pictures, but shots that express different things for different uses. This headshot session gave me so many choices and I'm thrilled. I honestly do not have any constructive criticism. Every experience we have had with you has been positive."

- Julie of the Julie Eurillo Studio of Music

"Mike is a great photographer with amazing energy. He made all of the kids feel so comfortable and really got their best shot. The pictures are great, and it was a fun, stress-free photo session!"

- Ashley, Director of Fierce Dance Academy

"The whole experience was smooth and pleasant, and the pictures turned out great. You were calm and professional. You have a warm disposition and a relaxing tone. The job got done effortlessly (for me) but the results were fantastic."

- Ben, Actor

"Mike was very, very good at knowing, from both an actor's and a photographer's perspective, what was needed to make a great headshot happen. I was at ease and trusted him during the entire shoot!"

- Erin, Actress

"Mike, you are so engaging! Also, I love how you posed me. You did great. You made me look exactly how I wanted to for auditions. You have to look like yourself. You are the first person to get me to smile naturally!"
