Michael photographed our wedding today and we really can't say enough wonderful things about him! He is incredibly professional and brings a lot of energy to what he does, and his photos are amazing just from looking on his camera! The entire family loved working with him, we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer! More...
Michael photographed my nieces wedding on July 10th, her dad beat me to the review but Michael was amazing, had everyone at ease, didn't show any pressure due to the terrible weather or needing to leave the church due to circumstances totally out of his hands. Took so much time and effort and I can not wait to see the pictures. Couldn't recommend you highly enough, many many thanks More...
Not really sure where to start for how amazing you were on my special day. You went above and beyond our expectations, you were willing to do whatever it took to make sure you captured the perfect moment on our perfect day. Not only do we love you so did all of our guest. We were getting compliments all night on how fantastic and lovely you are. There will only be one photographer we go to in life now and that is you! We can't wait to see our wedding pictures we know they are going to blow us away. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Xxxxxx More...
Michael photographed my daughter's wedding on 10th July 2017. I must say, Michael is the most professional & friendly photographer I have ever met. Nothing was too much trouble. The weather was poor at the start of the day so he came earlier than booked to take some additional indoor shots in case we couldn't get outside. He also stayed much longer to get all the shots my daughter wanted. In all he was with us for 12 hours and all of the guests had nothing but positive comments. All I can say is, if you have any requirements for a photographer then I can't recommend Michael high enough. Unfortunately, the rating only goes to 5 stars but I would have added more. Thank you Michael for making my daughter's special day that bit more special. More...
I'm so glad we chose Michael as our photographer for our wedding.
Wedding days are amazing but sooooo stressful, so the last thing you need is a photographer that's hard work. Michael is so easy to get on with he put everyone at ease so we could get on with our day and not worry.
The photos are AMAZING!! I'm not a fan of the "airy fairy" white wash, standard photos which was one of the reasons why we chose Michael.
The photos he did for us are vibrant, the colours really pop and he really made the most of our venue. I'm 100% in love with our photos and really glad they stand out from other wedding photos.
Michael isn't for the faint hearted, plain couple. If you want fun, style and want a break from the norm, Michael is for You!!
Thank you Michael! More...
