The Knot Best of Weddings Award

The Knot "Best Of Weddings 2020" award given to Michael Anderson Photography located in Mounds View, MN.

2020 marks the 8th year in a row, and 11th time in the last 13 years that we’ve been selected among the best wedding photographers in the United States.

Over the years, our hard work has not gone unnoticed. We go all the way back to 2008 when we were selected as “The Knot – Best of Weddings Award” for the very first time. Joannie and I have now received that prestigious award eleven times in the past thirteen years (2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and once again in 2020)!

The Knot Hall of Fame

In January 2015, Michael & Joanie were inducted into The Knot "Best of Weddings" Hall of Fame.

Michael & Joanie were inducted into The Knot “Best of Weddings” Hall of Fame in 2015.

In January of 2015, we received word that we had been placed into a special VIP group; The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame. In the words of The Knot; “They are simply the best-of-the-best!”

The press release from The Knot read: “Minneapolis wedding photographers Michael and Joannie Anderson, owners of Michael Anderson Photography have been inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame!” – Nice!

WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award

Michael Anderson Photography have been selected as recipients of the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards for 2020.

For the 5th year in a row, Joannie and I have been recognized by WeddingWire as among the best wedding photographers in the United States.

2020 also marked the 5th year in a row that we received the prestigious “WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award” from Wedding Wire.

What sets these awards from The Knot and WeddingWire apart from most other awards is that they are given out based on reviews for actual brides and grooms, not by voting or other means. It tells a lot about what a business does for its clients if the client is willing to share their experiences so that other couples can make better decisions for their wedding vendors.

When someone brings a Ferrari to your wedding, you gotta take some photos with it!
