Full Description
Mahoney Pics is made up of me (Michelle) and my husband (David) and if you're really lucky you'll get to meet our little girl, Tilly, and our labrador, Logan. You can choose to have either just myself or me and David to capture your day, or I can always recommend what may work best for you. What you want, what you need and what you'd like on your wedding are THE most important things to us. Our job is to not only take beautiful photos that capture the moments of your day but to make you and your partner feel at ease, comfortable and to make sure we do all that we can to help ensure your day goes to plan and is everything you want it to be. Be this a quick mend of a dress to the supply of hairspray to the fixing go cravats, to simply just taking the most beautiful photos. We work candidly, capturing moments as they happen, chatting to your guests so they too feel at ease with us, and our cameras, and we'll never spend more than 20 minutes on any couple photographs you would like. Again, these are also really relaxed, we'll go for a wander and whilst we may fix your dress and suit we try to keep it as natural as possible. We may direct you a little bit, but mainly, we'll ask you to chat about your day, your mornings, how the ceremony went and every now and again we may shout 'Kiss'... if you've been too busy chatting! So, in a nutshell we're very relaxed and laid back, we'll work quietly and discreetly and use natural light whenever possible to help us get the most beautiful photos. We can stay for just the ceremony or spend the whole day with you and we'll spend time with you in advance of the day to go through what you would like and to give advice if you would like it. We love weddings and we love to photograph them, this isn't a job, it's a real love and hopefully this shows in our work. x

Magical Memories of our Tipi Wedding
Michelle was highly recommend to us, we can’t thank her enough, from the initial meeting at Starbucks it was like catching up with an old friend. Michelle understood our laid back concept and we are delighted with our photographs.

Michelle was absolutely fab! She made everything so easy, she knew exactly what to do and what was good. She captured our day with the most stunning photo's and not one bit was awkward. She is not just a great professional but a great person also.

Michelle made us all feel happy and relaxed
We were guests at my best friends wedding in august, Barbara and Peter, and just wanted to say what a fantastic job you did! It was a small wedding and I was worried about being photographe but you made me, and all of the other guests, feel really at ease and relaxed, so much so I forgot you was taking photos. Barbara and Peter we’re clearly very at ease with you and the photos you’ve given them capture their day perfectly! I’ll be recommending you to anyone who needs a wedding photographer!

A bespoke job on our special day
Our wedding was a huge event for us but, in comparison to most weddings, quite a small event. Michelle met with us to ascertain our wishes and tailored the whole package to suit our requirements. She tactfully made some great suggestions in our planning of the event. On the day, her photography was really creative and perfectly captured not just the images but the deep love and great celebration at the heart of the day. I have recommended Mahoney Pics to others and will continue to do so...experts in their field.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Thoughtful, Friendly, Speedy, Unobtrusive, Quirky

What about your business are you most proud of?

My happy couples! I'm so proud of my work and the joy it brings, couples seeing parts of the day they missed and just reliving it through their photos, I love it!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Talk to each other!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The Olympian bride who walked down the aisle to the brass band she'd played in most of her life playing the Olympian anthem! Beautiful!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like bullet points so here's the process in a nutshell: - the couple get in touch and we respond usually within a day or so - we'll then meet up so you can get to meet us and see physical photos and talk through your day and the packages we provide. - after this you can choose if we're the couple to capture your day and pay a deposit of £100 that secures the date and the price of the package you've chosen - around 4 weeks before your wedding day you'll meet with us (usually Michelle) to go through the nitty gritty of the day, photos you'd like and any extra special things we should know. You'll also have your pre-wedding shoot then if chosen. - pay the remainder of the amount 14 days before the wedding and we send a receipt through for this. - big day arrives and we work, sometimes like silent ninjas and sometimes like ringmasters depending on the photos being taken - ninjas in the ceremony, ringmasters for the group shots! - your photos are then lovingly edited down and touched up and delivered via a secure online gallery approximately 4-5 weeks after the wedding. - if you're having an album you make your choices and order any prints once these arrive we deliver everything including all the edited images on a special USB stick :) Done!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Confetti, Confetti, Confetti! I adore the confetti shot, the whole wedding group with the couple entered just having so much fun, it's a definite for all of my couples.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

To crack on! As a northerner I'm very used to a bit of rain so I am armed with clear umbrellas and mats for couples to stand on and we just get on with it, embrace the rain and you'll have an amazing day, you can't change the weather!
