Full Description
I throw the forced unnatural posing you’d typically expect with wedding photography well and truly out the window, and instead work to spark real emotion. At no point do things feel like a photoshoot, and you’ll never need to pull a fake smile. We make things as enjoyable as wedding photography can be. I like to give back and keep things eco friendly so all products are now officially 100% zero plastic and eco-friendly! Not only that, but for every booking there will be a donation to plant and maintain new trees around the world! *NEW 2023 GIVEAWAY* I have had the opportunity to finally achieve my dream of becoming a full time photographer, so to say thank you for everyone that has helped me in this journey, I am giving something back! I am giving one lucky client who books in for a 2023 wedding a chance to win a full days coverage for just their deposit, potentially saving them £1000 on their wedding!!! All you have to do is secure your date by the end of June 2022 to be entered and the winner will be announced on my Facebook page in July!

Outstanding Photography for a Perfect Wedding
We are overjoyed with our experience with Michael. He truly captured the essence of our wedding day. He was super accommodating dispite the difficult times of the Covid 19 and all the uncertainty that brought. Michael's photography is outstanding, timeless and reasonably priced. His hard work means we have captured the memories of our special day. I will be recommending him to all my friends and family.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unique, Natural, Fun, Friendly, Professional.

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

Try not to stress! Stress can cause a lot of friction on you and your partner. Things may get a little hectic no matter how organised you are, but once you take that first step on the aisle and see you partner standing there, all your worries will disappear.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Before a couple books me I like to meet up with them first, have a good chat to get to know them more as a couple and to get a lot of detail on what they would like to be captured on their day. If they are happy and would like to book me, then we will arrange a free engagement shoot for them so they get a chance to work with me before their day to make them feel a lot more comfortable and familiar with how I work.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

To introduce my glass ball into my wedding photography. It has given an amazing effect and a great and creative new prospective on my images.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Wellies and colourful umbrellas! No one will see your wellies under your dress and it will keep your shoes clean for when you go inside. I say colourful umbrellas because no one wants to turn up at a wedding and see dark and dull umbrellas all over the place. Even if it rains, it can still be a colourful and magical experience for you both.
