Client Testimonials

"I am obsessed with the pictures - absolutely LOVE them all! You really went above and beyond and covered so much: wide angle, close ups, candids, panoramic view - amazing. I especially appreciate the hard work that I know went into getting all those fantastic shots from the ceremony; those were the most special to us and we love them. I just keep looking at them all over and over!!!"

Our beautiful day is captured for us to re-live and re-love over and over again. You are more than an artist: you are magical!
We thank you in ways that mere words cannot express. Bless you!"

-Nancy Budd Garvan

"Michael shot our wedding from the early start to the late ending, and he left when the last guests left. Michael fought tricky light, sweltering heat and a sea of frantic family and friends...and he did it all with the professional poise that one would expect of a career professional. Michael's hundreds of magical images immortalized our big day and I cannot recommend him or the quality of his work highly enough."

-Bryan O'Neil Hughes

Photoshop Product Manager, Adobe Systems



"I have been through the online gallery probably 6 or 7 times already now, and I love them more and more each time I look through them!"

-Traci Nguyen

Executive Assistant, Institute of Technology



“The wedding photos produced by DMT exceeded our expectations in every possible way. They captured the joy of the occasion in an a very casual way and included all of the attendees. Many people have stated they will be framing photos of themselves and others which were taken throughout the event. I would highly recommended DMT to anyone as he was fantastic.”

-Ben Goodsir

Director Portfolio Management, Allianz Real Estate



“We run an incredibly complex event with some of our most important stakeholders in attendance. Michael had his team up and running at the same time we were, running around golf courses, printing on-location, getting photos ready to be distributed for guests to take with, and most importantly capturing our most important moments. Our attendees loved reviewing their experience after they got home, and in the 20 years of running this event, these are some of the best photos yet.”

-Adam Levy

Special Events & Marketing Coordinator, National Restuarant Association Education Foundation



"In over 17 years of producing, managing, and running events, I have yet to find a photographer as professional and engaging at the same time as you. You were always in the right spot at the right time, but never intrusive. You got the money shots when we needed them, and our participants actually enjoyed having you around. Thanks for making our event as memorable as it was, literally! I look forward to many more events with you in the future. Thanks again."

-Ken Schmalz

Managing Partner, S&A Event Services



"Thank you so much for the coverage of National Philanthropy Day.....we are spreading the word through the committee about your wonderful images.
You are a treasure and an asset for us in the non-profit community....thank you!"

-Brenda Whitsett

Co-Chair, National Philanthropy Day



"The pictures look amazing! We can't thank you enough for being there to capture all the pictures and then turn them around so quickly! I swear it was like Christmas morning waking up this morning excited to see them all. The web gallery is perfect, we've already shared it with family & friends and are getting rave reviews. I must say, a lot of photographers can take decent pictures, but not many will deliver all absolutely stunning images from an event within 24 hours in both low & high resolution. In fact, I think I can safely say I had never met someone who did all of that with a warm, welcoming, friendly personality like yours that made you a joy to work with. It is a rare combination, and we look forward to working with you again for our wedding. Thank you!"

"This was the first time we hired a professional photographer for our Radiology Holiday Party.  We could not have picked a better person!  Michael was enthusiastic from before the first guest arrived until the last person walked out the door.  He never stopped the whole night!  I did not truly appreciate how fabulous the party was, however, until I saw his work.  The way he captured the light, the ambiance, the people and their personalities was amazing.  Michael, thank you for making this night so memorable for everyone.  It was a night, thanks to you, that none of us will forget."

-Kristine Leatherberry, MD

Diagnostic Radiologist, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula



“Michael from DMT Imaging has been the photographer for our corporate Christmas party for the past five years.  Given his good nature and professionalism, we and our guests consider Michael to be part of the CFMG family.  His pictures capture not only the essence of the 'CFMG family' but the entire holiday spirit exhibited during our events.  I would highly recommend Michael and DMT Imaging and would not consider using anyone else to memorialize our events."

"You were an amazing asset to Run in the Name of Love: hard working, energetic and generous for donating half of your services to Run in the Name of Love. Thank you for your expertise and photography skills; the photos are absolutely amazing! There are so many that I want to use in many ways - by sending specific ones to sponsors and special people and by putting them on the Run in the Name of Love website. You made a point of including everything on my list and I am so appreciative. We have some beautiful, meaningful and very useful photos, a great record of our inaugural event. I am so grateful: you exceeded my expectations. You went beyond the call of duty and it was greatly appreciated not only by me but all of the other committee members, volunteers and participants. "

-Susan Love

Race Director, Run in the Name of Love



"Michael Troutman's friends call him *Flash*, same nickname as a famous former wide receiver for the 49ers. No connection really, other than Michael is just about as quick as Jerry Rice and every bit the professional.
When good friend Joann Dost was out of town and the Finnell Family Christmas photo had to be taken (quickly), there was no question as to who we would pick to take our family's pic. After all, who else would you trust to take a flattering photo of a guy in a Santa "snuggie", along with his wife, teen-aged kids and devoted doggies? Thank you Michael for making it happen in a perfect *Flash*."

-Hunter Finnell

Owner, Hunter Finnell Media



"San Rafael Swell, Utah: After a long, hot, dusty drive and a night of camping, I washed my face in water drained from the old Coleman cooler …. Then, amid the red rock and junipers of Buckhorn Draw, Michael produced the perfect author photos for my book of short fiction set in Utah’s canyon country. Thank you, DMT Imaging!"

-Erica Olsen

Author, Recapture & Other Stories (Torrey House Press)

-Bob Kramer

"I celebrated my 50th birthday at Pebble Beach Golf Links.  I had three guests with me and wanted to surprise them with individual framed photos to commemorate this once in a lifetime golf trip.  My initial contact with Michael was via phone calls and e-mails from Connecticut.  I described what I wanted and together we came up with a plan for the best product and most impact for my guests.  Michael came through 100%, creating the images and delivering the framed prints the same day.  I found him to be creative, motivated, honest and very trustworthy.  I would recommend Michael Troutman and DMT Imaging to everyone who is seeking professionalism and really good work!"  

-Kurt Cavanaugh

Recently, I had to have some shots taken of me for various art related things, and he did a great job with the portrait type photos, too. Posing is not fun, but he made it really painless--now that's a gift!"

-Jason Lande

Upon our son’s graduation from college, my wife and I began planning a trip to Pebble Beach Golf Resort to celebrate his accomplishment. We felt the only way to really capture the beauty and occasion was to hire a professional photographer to seal these memories forever. The great folks at Pebble Beach Golf Resort gave me a few photographers’ names to consider hiring. After interviewing several, Michael from DMT Imaging was a standout choice. His work and the value for his fees and services were second to none! Michael delivered on everything we spoke about when I interviewed him. He was very prompt and very well prepared. His presence on the golf course was never disruptive to our round of golf. His candid shots were superb and the photos he did take of us while posing were carefully thought out and captured the beauty of this magnificent course. The photographs were delivered via website as promised, edited and uploaded onto a link. What can I say, they were AWESOME! All of our friends and family were impressed with the images captured by Michael. I cannot say enough about Michael’s professionalism, work and value. If the event you are planning has significant meaning, I recommend you hire a professional and not rely on a novice to capture those special moments. Choose a professional. Choose Michael from DMT Imaging.

"Our praise for the work of Michael Troutman is endless! He captured the memories of our wedding day showing the excitement, sentimentality and love that prevailed throughout. From running on the bluffs above the beach to photograph the terrain and the wedding procession on the move, then the intimate and joyful ceremony, the unique formal photos and the expanded reception: Michael covered all of it seamlessly. His demeanor with our guests put them at ease and the compliments about him and his photographic work is so heartwarming to us, the wedding couple. Thank you Michael!"
