Weddings and civil partnerships are arguably the most testing discipline for any photographer. Whereas other jobs might allow for reshoots (albeit potentially expensive and embarrassing), weddings have to be done right; first time, every time.
The modern wedding is all types of photography rolled into one: fashion, glamour, reportage, group-portrait, product and architectural shoot. The couple want the best, but they don’t want it to interfere with their day, so it needs to be minimum fuss, maximum style. What that needs is diplomacy, tact, humour, patience… and skill.
With a reputation for an engaging manner and a distinct vision, Michael Cockerham is an expert wedding photographer in both traditional and reportage styles of wedding photography. He has a simple rule of thumb: strive to produce the best photographs possible, but not at the expense of the couple’s enjoyment of their day. The approach is relaxed, fun, and absolutely in keeping with what these occasions are supposed to be about: romance, style, laughter, family and friends.
Michael is happy to meet with prospective couples to discuss their needs and show samples of work. Generally all things are possible, whether the event is just up the road or on a different continent. Interested couples should get in touch to establish availability, and a brochure will be sent out detailing the various schemes on offer – from simple unobtrusive registry office events with the minimum fuss, to the all encompassing Storybook. Whether you are planning the wedding of the season, a quick “I Do”, or the most stylish civil partnership in history, Michael Cockerham will provide you with the only thing other than the relationship itself that can last: the memories in vivid colour and sensual black and white.
