Full Description
Hi, I'm Mike. ​ I am a natural wedding and portrait photographer who instead of putting you in front of big studio lights in a studio, gets you outside in the elements where you will feel more comfortable and confident in front of the camera, no matter how shy you are. This way your photo shoot will be a lot more relaxed, fun and 100% natural. ​ I have my own original touch by incorporating props into my work such as my signature glass ball, string lights, sparklers, a Moon lamp and many more to give a whole new feel and perspective to my images. ​ Last year I was shortlisted for the Wedding Awards 2017 and this year I have won the 'Silver Certificate of Excellence' at the Wedding Awards 2018. I have also came in the Top 6 photographers as a Finalist in the Guides for Brides Customer Service Awards which I am over moon about! ​ I hope you like my work, feel free to get in contact with any questions or enquiries and hopefully we can work together soon to capture some amazing moments!

The best and exceptionally unique photos
I never would have thought that adding a clear glass ball or some leaves to a photo would make it unique and magical. So impressed and extremely happy!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

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.
