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

Just the very best
Mahoney pics were just absolutely amazing for our wedding. We messaged her after a recommendation from our wedding dress supplier. Michelle instantly put me at ease. I wasnt sure how to describe the style of photographs i like but she understood instantly what i was trying to get at and showed me examples i knew straight away that she would be perfect . Michelle was great at keeping in contact andincluded a fab engagement shoot for us in a location of our choice. The photos were amazing and wewete delighted. On the day itself michelle came to my mums house where we were getting ready whilst her husband went to the venue ro capture the boys. Over the course of the day they captured thousandds of natural and beautiful photographs. They mde everyone feel at ease and even befriended all the other suppliers! Michelle kept the time we were away fro. The parth to a minimum but made sure to get all the shots we wanted. When our little one slept all the way through the group shots she came back to take a gorgeous family picture in the evening. Mahoney pics were amazing the whole day and i cannot thank them both enough. We love our photos!!

Our perfect day
We chose Mahoney Pictures for our special day, as when we meet them they was down to earth and nothing was too much trouble to ask. I explained we didnt want "posey pictures" we wanted natural and they are perfect we was so overwhelmed when we could look at them. Michelle personally delivered our usb sticks with all our pictures on them, there was so much thought and love that had been put into it they arrived beautifully wrapped and presentation was 110% a gorgeous box with dries rose petals in and a photo frame with a picture of me and my husband in it. So much thought had been put into all of their work.We couldnt of asked for anyone better to capture our perfect day and michelle made us feel very calm and not rushed or stressed over pictures. Everytime we look back at our pictures we just smile and think straight back to that moment. We cant thank mahoney pictures enough for our memories they have provided. Thank You so Much!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

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!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Thoughtful, Friendly, Speedy, Unobtrusive, Quirky

What about your business are you most proud of?

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!

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

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 your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

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.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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!

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

Talk to each other!
