If we're going to be friends then here's everything you need to about my approach and why all of my couples fall in love with their photos...
I want every bride and groom to feel special, that they're my top priority and most of all, excited about their wedding photography! This is why I have created a service that offers each unique couple an incredible experience.
It's important to me that you know that my service goes way beyond the 10 hours I spend with you on your wedding day. I'm always on the end of the phone or an email if you need any help or advice on your wedding planning (and check out my blog for loads of info too!).
I'll ensure your photography goes as smoothly as possible with timely emails both before and after your wedding, and I'll keep your excitement for your planning alive with some special touches (If I told you what they were that'd spoil the surprise!)
02. Discover your photographer
03. Engagement session
04. Ready for your day
05. On your day
06. After your day
07. Fine-art wedding albums
08. Love letters from my couples
09. The next steps
Every love story is unique and I love capturing the images that illustrate yours. I'll be there to record all the love, laughter, tears, excitement and crazy dance moves of your big day.
My couples usually book me around 1 to 2 years before their big day so my diary tends to fill up quickly. You've arrived here from searching the internet or more likely a recommendation from a friend or wedding co-ordinator who love my work. A lot of my couples find all the info they need about my photography from reading all about me, browsing real weddings on my blog and checking my pages of advice to help you plan your special day.
I'd love to chat over the phone or you can call out to the studio to have a coffee and a browse through my favourite albums. I offer a choice of wedding collections or we can create a bespoke collection tailored perfectly to your day. If this sounds ideal for you then get in contact here and rest assured that once you're booked you can relax knowing that I'll guide you through everything.
We're the perfect match if...
...you can't wait to marry the love of your life, and you'd love treasured memories of you and your guests sharing your day, immortalised in a stunning fine-art wedding album.
Let the fun begin! I know you both want to feel relaxed in front of the camera, especially on your wedding day, and that's important to me too, as the most natural and timeless moments happen when you're able to be truly you.
On your engagement shoot we'll get to know each other, you'll get used to being in front of the camera and we'll create beautiful images to adorn your walls at home, or surprise your wedding guests with gorgeous signing book filled with your favourite engagement images.
Your shoot will be in a location that you love and you're welcome to bring any other two- or four-legged family members!
I always ensure everything moves as smoothly as possible on your wedding day so the prep begins a few weeks earlier when I get in touch and send you my pre-wedding questionnaire. This gathers all the info I need to photograph your day and ensure myself and my second photographer are ready to capture all your treasured moments.
We'll also catch up on the phone on the week of your wedding to confirm any final details, have a chat about a wet weather plan (fingers crossed we won't need it!) and to share a few last minute tips.
I love to be early to arrive at bride's homes on wedding mornings to soak up the atmosphere and capture the little moments that begin your story. I'll usually arrive around 2 ½ hours before you're scheduled to leave for your ceremony, and my second photographer will arrive around an hour before your groom is due to leave.
Throughout your day we'll be capturing the emotions, love and tears of you and your guests in as natural and unobtrusive way as possible. I like to provide minimal direction and instead just let you both be yourselves, wrapped up in each others arms. Your day will be unique and I love to tell your story with authentic images that you will treasure for years ahead.
I believe that your wedding photos should tell the complete story of your day so we stay all the way from bride & groom prep in the morning through to your bridal dances in the evening. We'll also head outside in the evening to create stunning twilight portraits that are the perfect finale to your wedding album!
I know you can't wait to see your wedding photos, and I can't wait for you to see them either! I'll curate a gorgeous sneak peek of around 20 images that capture the spirit of your day and that you can share with your friends and family to announce your nuptials online.
Your full gallery will be edited beautifully and ready within six weeks, you'd be able to call out to my studio for a coffee and to choose your favourites for your wedding album. We'll also decide on your album cover design and create your gorgeous studio box to store your heirloom for the years ahead.
After you have viewed your photos they will be uploaded to a private online gallery that you are free to share with friends and family around the world. They can relive the excitement of your day and even order prints to be delivered straight to their front door.
In the meantime, I'll design your album filled with your fave images and using as many pages as suit to tell your wedding story perfectly! You'll be able to proof your design before it goes to print and before you know it you'll be reliving your day in beautiful print.
Every wedding is unique and deserves a stunning album to relive your story again and again. Filled with your favourite images and personalised with a bespoke cover and design box, my albums are the perfect keepsake to begin your married life.
I'll design your album and you'll be able to request changes directly on the pages ensuring it's exactly as you desire. Handmade by Graphistudio in Italy, it will be ready for collection in 4-6 weeks.
This is the perfect ending to your wedding experience and a family heirloom that you will be showing your children and grandchildren one day!
Enough about me, here's what my couples have to say about their experience...
You won't find a better wedding photographer than Michael. His enthusiasm and excitement for your day is evident from the
moment you meet him, and is equal to his talent with a camera and ability to capture the most precious of moments that will be with
you will have for a lifetime!
Michael is a genuinely a lovely lovely man, who not only done an amazing job with our engagement and wedding photos but also added so much more to our day. Sending us a lovely engagement packages, keeping in touch before and after the wedding. He is
one of the very few who seems to just love and enjoy his job which comes through in his work.
I would highly recommend Michael and will be without a doubt using his services again.
Choosing Michael as our wedding photographer for our wedding in December was such a good decision, he is just brilliant.
From first meeting Michael we knew he just had a great way about him. Every interaction was seamless and he was always there with any questions or queries. He captured our day perfectly, we both felt so at ease around him and the amazing pictures he took of our day we will have to treasure forever. Michael went the extra mile at every step with extra surprises, unnecessary but so thoughtful, which added to our engagement, the lead up to our wedding and even after.
An excellent professional, fantastic at what he does and an absolute pleasure to work with. Michael, we cannot thank you enough 🤵🏼👰💕📸
I would say that I have had experience with a lot of photographers and Michael was amazing from start to finish and miles ahead of
others in the business! The small touches along the way made the relationship more personal and everyone was comfortable and
at ease. You went above and beyond and I'm sure all your postage costs to Oz were not included in your price!!! Thank you sooo much for everything!!
