I'm so grateful to photograph weddings for a living because I get to capture people on one of the happiest days of their lives. I love taking the time to really get to know the couples that hire me - your trust in me helps me create beautiful, heartfelt images. On a wedding day I'm all smiles and treat everyone like friends. In the end, it's about you, not about me. I love photographing portraits and details, but what really matters is capturing your connection with the people who mean the most to you. I don't impose myself on your day; I want to photograph your wedding just the way it is. I call myself a documentary-style wedding photographer because I strive to create heartfelt images by being as unobtrusive as possible. I consider myself to be warm, approachable and easy-going. In my spare time, I love making pizzas, drinking coffee and playing video games. A website can only go so far, so if you'd like to see more wedding photos (or what I'm up to!) have a look at my Instagram.

. He captures everything so beautifully, and even managed to send us over a few extras that we asked for because we just couldn't get enough. He has truly left us wishing that we could do it all over again!!

We knew from seeing his work that he'd capture our day perfectly; what we couldn't have anticipated, though, was his attention to detail, his responsiveness, and his level of care.

Married in June 2018
Almost everyone says that getting married is the best day of their lives and Michael has definitely made sure we and our friends won't forget the fun that was had.
We both didn't want to spend our day posing for hours and having a load planned group shots and found it very hard to find a photographer that had the reportage style we ...

And now, just two weeks later, he has sent over the most breath-taking, eye-welling, giggle-inducing, magical photographs of the happiest weekend of our lives. We haven't been able to stop scrolling through the images he sent us and laughing, crying, and aw-ing in turn.
From our very first email exchange and Skype conversation we knew Michael was the one. He's so charming, positive, and vibrant that even in the earliest of conversations ...

What is your most memorable wedding?
There isn't one! Every wedding has something beautiful and unique that I take with me and remember years down the line. It just fills me with so much joy to be able to document such a special day for a living.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, unobtrusive, creative, clean and bold.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My partner Eleanor! It's technically "just me", but she's always there to give me that little push when I need it the most. When I moved to the UK 3 years ago, she helped go full-time instead of pursuing a more traditional career.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't feel like you have to do something at your wedding just because everyone else has. It's your day, and there's no right or wrong - just YOU.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Home-made honey jars as little gifts for all the guests.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We'll get together for a coffee and get to know each other and talk about your wedding day. If you decide to book me we'll sign a contract and meet again about one month or so before the wedding date. Here we'll confirm all the little details and talk about your day. After all the pictures are edited you can expect to receive them no later than 6 weeks after the wedding date (usually 2-3 weeks). I'll be here every step along the way to help with any questions you might have.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The one you don't know I'm taking! :-)
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Realising that your day will be just as beautiful as if it hadn't rained.
Describe how you got into photography.
It's a long story, and I'd love to tell it to you in person!
