Full Description
Oh hey there, I'm Michelle a South Wales wedding photographer living in Cardiff. I'm a thirty something year old, super friendly and slightly dorky cinema lover. I love nothing more than colour and an adventure. No seriously I love shooting on my holidays for fun or a destination wedding. And if it's somewhere warm, then even better. I'm here to make your wedding planning easier. I'm passionate about working with each couple in a collaborative way on their wedding photography. It should all be about you as a couple! I work with each couple in the lead-up to their wedding. Supporting, planning and giving wedding tips when needed (lots more on my blog). There are no rules when it comes to planning your day, just do it your way. Working with me on your wedding day will be laid-back and fun. Having your wedding photographs taken can be an absolute ball. It's about working with the right photographer, someone whose style you love and you get on with so well, so by the time your wedding day is here, it's like an old friend rocked up with their camera. You're getting married... it's a big freaking deal!!! Work with suppliers who get that, who want to collaborate with you and bring your ideas to life.

Would highly recommend Michelle, thank you!
"Michelle photographed our wedding in July and was the perfect photographer. Her friendly approach and creative, fun and relaxed style was exactly what we were looking for and ensured we enjoyed having our photos without too much awkwardness! We have just received our photographs and cannot stop looking through them, they are beautiful. Would highly recommend Michelle, thank you!" - Kate & Matthew

What an amazing photographer!
What an amazing photographer! The idea of being photographed all day sounded like a nightmare to me but Michelle put us at ease straight away, I never thought I would enjoy having my photo taken but Michelle made everything so much fun. We wanted more informal photos at our wedding an Michelle was more than happy to oblige and leading up to the wedding kept coming up with different ideas to try at the wedding including using coloured smoke bombs. The photos turned out incredible. Michelle stayed at the wedding way longer than we had thought she would in order to get all the photos that she wanted to get and somehow we still had a selection of photos from the day emailed to us first thing on Sunday morning. If you are looking for a photographer who will make you enjoy having your photo taken and be able to capture you and your friends in the best light then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michelle. A number of our guests have said that they will be speaking to Michelle when they get married due to how good she was at our wedding.

thank you for making our wedding dreams come true!
Well what can I say about the most incredible human that is Michelle Huggleston...we met at a wedding fair 2 years before my wedding and I can honestly say it was fate. I approached her stand because her photos looked simply stunning, she was immediately warm & friendly to talk to, she totally understood the theme of our wedding straight away and as it turns out it was on her bucket list. Walking away from her stand that day I knew we'd found the one & booked soon after! From the first moment I met Michelle she's been absolutely amazing, we had several meetings before our big day including a pre-wedding shoot. She made us feel completely at ease, every step of the way, her attention to detail is impeccable and she is just the loveliest person ever! Michelle was just as excited for our wedding as we were and by the time our wedding came around it was more like a close friend was taking our photos rather than a wedding photographer! On the big day Michelle arrived early, ensuring she captured every detail of the day from begining to end, she had the list I had created of photos we wanted and moved through with ease in a relaxed but professional manner. She made us & all our guests feel completely at ease and all of our guests commented how lovely she was. The images she captured are absolutely exquisite, they are so precious to us especially as my beautiful Nan has now passed away since our wedding. The images she took of my Nan are breathtaking and treasured by our family already. She captured everything we could have wished for & more, she did an absolutely outstanding job and we've had nothing but positive compliments about how gorgeous our photos are. Nothing was too much trouble for Michelle from day one, the pride she takes in her work is incredible and she wants to make sure everything is perfect for you. Michelle totally understood us as a couple & our Disney Pixar "Up" themed wedding from the get-go and cannot thank the universe enough for allowing us to cross paths. Thank you for everything, thank you for making our wedding dreams come true! 😘

FAQ
(7)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Each wedding is unique and fun. And I love them all. I get to work with the best couples. I felt really lucky to be asked to photograph my friends weddings, they're twin sisters, who had a joint wedding in Hay-on-Wye. It was an honour to photograph their day, and what an incredible day it was!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

creative, colourful, stylish, relaxed, fun.

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

Enjoy the planning, to really trust your suppliers. And with photography you have to love the photographers work, but you also have to get along really well. You're with each other for a large portion of your day, so make sure you choose someone you also really like!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After getting an enquiry, I suggest meeting each couple for a consultation. I like to keep these relaxed and fairly informal. We meet over coffee (or a cheeky glass of wine!) I bring my albums for you to look through my previous work, and I get to hear all your wedding plans. I love talking weddings!

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

Confetti, hands down! Guests love to take part, even those that have avoided the camera all day. It's such a joyful moment, full of colour and full of fun.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

To keep smiling! Unfortunately this does happen, but you can have so much fun with it! Just enjoy your day, rain or shine.

Describe how you got into photography.

I got into photography when I was choosing my A Levels. I didn't quite know what subjects to choose, so copied one of my friends. I ended up falling in love with photography, and studied it as a degree. I then graduated with a First Class BA (hons). After graduating I assisted a few photographers, and thought I could offer something different. So here I am going solo!
