We loved the pics from our pre-wedding shoot. Michaelangelo was lovely and really put us both at ease, especially important as neither of us like having our photo taken!

Two weeks ago I was given the opportunity to have a family photo shoot with Michael for free and I was in two ways about the idea as didn't want to feel awkward during the shoot, but I decided to give it a go and wow am I pleased I did!! Michael arranged the location to be local, checked weather forecast and parking which was very helpful!! During the 2 hour shoot he was professional and yet easy to talk to and laid back! Having a 3 year old son can sometimes make planning impossible but thanks to Michael we felt so relaxed that the perfect photos were just flowing! Natural and artistic! Catching my son in the action and capturing loving intimate glances with my partner and myself with out us knowing (they were the best ones!) And the final photographs are perfect!! So so happy! Have had some created in to canvases to be displayed proudly in our family home! THANK YOU MICHAELANGELO!!!!!

Mike did our full day wedding photography for our special day in April this year - We were already excited about this after viewing the lovely photographs from our engagement shoot!
The pictures that Mike presented to us from the wedding day all fell into one of three categories, Fantastic, Perfect or Stunning! Everyone commented on how we were spoilt for choice when choosing which ones to have professionally printed!
If you want a Professional, Friendly and Reliable service with Gorgeous results 'Photography by Michelangelo' is the one to book! Thank you so much Mike!
From the new Mr and Mrs Akehurst

Michaelangelo photographed my wedding in August. I had seen photos he had taken at my friends wedding so i knew he was good but bless him he was amazing. My friends were all rather drunk and he put up with them. He stayed later than planned because I hadn't thrown the bouquet so he waited for that and he is genuinely just a lovely bloke. You certainly get what you pay for with this man and so much more

I found Michaelangelo’s wonderful photos through a friend and was so glad that I choose to have him do our full day wedding photography in May. He was friendly and professional throughout and was able to capture our amazing day perfectly! I love all of the photos and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again. I definitely recommend him to any future brides.

I just need to take a moment out of the chaos of life to thank Michael.
Our wedding parcel arrived a week or so ago now, full of special memories, so much love, and beautifully packaged. We honestly can't thank you enough Michael, for not only your gorgeous photos, but for all of your hard work before, after and on the day, and for your dedication at every stage of the process to your work and us. You have been just outstanding. The way you have captured our special day, is a magical gift and we are eternally grateful to be able to relive the best day of our lives through your work. We have loved showing off our intimate wedding to everyone who wasn't there with us and to all our guests. We feel so honoured that we won your competition and so very thank you that you've captured our day to be remembered forever. Thank you so much to a truly lovely man with so much talent.

Mike, thank you so much for your extraordinary work! I had never had a professional take me pictures, so I was a bit nervous at first but you made me feel so comfortable during the session! I was so impressed with how imaginative you are with poses and how well you work with the light to capture just the most magical pictures! After seeing the quality of your work I feel like I want to do this again and have no doubt you'll be the first one to call whenever I need a photographer. I am very grateful for your time and dedication to your work, and for your incredible patience during the session. I am in love with my pictures (who would have said I'd ever say this about my pictures!)!!

Photography by Michaelangelo Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

A great photograph can be very subjective and does depend greatly on the subject. As the vast majority of my work revolves around photographs of people it's important to create some sort of emotional connection between the viewer and the subjects. This is especially important if it's a wedding photograph being looked at by the couple in question. Beyond this there are a few key technical aspects to make the photograph more aesthetically pleasing to the eye - such as the rule of thirds and leading lines, which draw the viewer into the photograph and help to place the intended subject in focus. Finally, using the light effectively will greatly enhance the drama of a photograph by using it to highlight certain parts while obscuring others, further defining the subject.
Most of what makes a photograph stand out is not even down to the equipment used, but it takes a long time, patience and practice to be able to appreciate and competently utilise all these aspects properly, and is one of the many reasons why a good camera does not always make a good photographer, and why you should always consider hiring a professional who does this day in and day out.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

When meeting a couple to discuss their wedding photography I always love hearing about what they have planned so far for their day, as the photographer isn't always one of the first things they may consider! Finding out about their venue and colour schemes are always good places to start, and any little details they may have in mind. I always like to know important timings such as when the ceremony is, when the wedding breakfast and first dance are so that eventually I can plan a comprehensive schedule of the day for me to work from. If the couple are considering taking part in an engagement shoot I will try and emphasise it is nice to have this where they used to go on dates, and this brings back a lot of happy memories and makes them more comfortable and natural around me as well.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the independence being my own boss allows me. I can make my own decisions and go about things my own way but it's always the lovely clients that I work with that make the job exciting and interesting. The pace of wedding photography especially can be a bit frantic at times but I don't let this get to me and I enjoy being a 'go to' person for the couple during the planning process, as of course they have no idea what a wedding entails to begin with.

What inspired you to start your own business?

For many years photography used to be a hobby and nothing more, I never dreamed I would eventually turn it into a profession as well. Back in 2014 Some close friends of mine who were getting married suggested as I enjoyed photography that it would be nice for them to have some nice photos of the two of them taken that they could use on their wedding invites. I took it upon myself to research somewhere suitably romantic and scenic and we all went out together for the afternoon. I had never posed people for photos before but we all worked with the surroundings in the warm soft evening light and had a great time, When I showed them the finished photographs they (and I) were so impressed they suggested I could quite easily do it professionally. I thought about their advice and over time developed a brand and a website and Photography by Michaelangelo was born! Since then I have experimented with different types of portraiture photography and have settled on wedding photography as the mainstay of my business. I still offer other styles through the year when my schedule allows but weddings as you can imagine make up the bulk of my business in the milder months of the year.

Why should our clients choose you?

In a world of iphones and cheap technology its become easier for anyone to pick up a camera and call themselves a photographer. For those wanting someone to document an important event, especially their wedding, you should think long and hard about your choices. With me you have an extensive, consistent portfolio in a modern and vibrant style. Full of light and clean colours, I showcase your wedding as it was meant to be seen. I can utilise the environment and the lighting to bring the photographs to life. I may be younger that some more established photographers but this gives me a more up to date approach to both the lead up and the wedding itself. I spend a good deal of time after the event carefully selecting and perfecting the photographs to ensure you only receive the very best. There will be no blurry, badly lit, poorly composed, oddly coloured photographs in sight! Truly a service and end product to be proud of.
