Full Description
I like to get to know my clients and more importantly that we have a laugh so when I do shoot your fabulous day it comes with with ease and of course lots of fun! Whilst being discreet I capture lots of natural candid shots of you both and your guests through the day from you getting ready, to those emotional exchange of vows, your guests reactions to the speeches and those private moments between the two of you that you thought no one else noticed. I capture it all. I shoot what I see and I want to capture that love, a bit of romance and all those laughs, so be warned I may throw in some really bad jokes here and there! I also love capturing all those details of the day that you have worked so hard to put together and spent months planning. Your flowers, the dress, the beautifully put together tables, that amazing cake. These are the things that brought your day together that you may not necessary remember from the day. At some point during the day I’ll pull you away from your guests for you to have a moment to yourselves whilst I take some naturally relaxed and hopefully fun portraits of you both. I don’t do cheesy posing, unlike my own wedding photos – I position, don’t pose you and let you get on with it! If you are super uncomfortable in front of the camera I can go stealth mode and hide in a bush but I can’t promise I won’t heckle you both!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Michelle
Photos stir up powerful emotions and memories. Having that from your Wedding Day is as important to me as it is for you and your photos are the one lasting memory from your day you can look at over and over again. So, if you think you’d like me to do this for you lets get together and have a chat over a brew (or wine) soon!

Went over and above to capture everything
Amazing lady! Michelle was fantastic and kept in touch from the minute we booked her right up until our wedding. She is fun so personable and all my wedding guests commented how she didn't stop all day and went over and above to capture everything. She is Manchester based but it was never too much trouble to come over to us to discuss details. We also feel we made a true friend in her. Please give this ladies page a like and contact her for your wedding/christenings/proms She is ACE x

Taking the photos were relaxed and fun
Where do we even begin! We were lucky enough to win our wedding photography from Michelle via a Facebook competition. From the very beginning she was fantastic, kept in touch regularly and gave us advice when needed. Our pre wedding shoot was relaxed and fun, we had no idea how it was going to run yet we came out with sore cheeks from laughing so much. On the day of our wedding Michelle was fantastic, the photos were again relaxed and fun and everybody commented on her energy and humour. Thank you for helping to make our day so perfect! xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

The one where the Bride was 45 minutes late and the register had to leave before they could marry the couple! It all worked out in the end though, just had a little bit of a backwards day with the Ceremony at the end.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, natural, fun, personal and candid

What about your business are you most proud of?

My ability to capture those little moments you think nobody else saw!

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

Give yourself enough time between the serious bit and sitting down to eat.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

You get in touch, we have a brew or a wine and talk about your big day, you tell me all the details, I show off my latest weddings and I tell you how I work and what you can expect. You book - woo hoo - then you receive a surprise in the post. An Engagement shoot comes with all my packages as standard so thats usually the next time you will see you, we go out into the woods or the Moores or the city or even go karting, we have a laugh, I usually fall over at some point. Nearer the date I send you over some forms so I have all your timings to hand and your vendor details. On the day I arrive super exciting to shoot your day, make sure you feel amazing, tell daft jokes to make you laugh, become best mates with all your aunties and just shoot your day blending into the background as much as I can. I may also solizite some drinking games with your mates to get the party started! After our goodbyes you can expect some sneak peaks over on my instra as well as a mini blog over on my site for you to share with your guests as a bit of a taster of whats to come.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The family Dog signing the register. True story!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas! Rain doesn't mean you have to have all your photos inside. Grab a brolly and lets get outside, the rain can make for some awesome photos - especially as the evening draws in. Anyway, its good luck to rain on your wedding day, I'll tell you why when you get in touch!

Describe how you got into photography.

I'm an army brat and grew up travelling the world and moving every 3 years so I learned from a very early age how important photo's were for memories and keeping family updated whilst abroad. I was always the kid with a camera at the end of every school year or school trip. I loved those disposable film cameras! It was recently our 20 year school reunion and most of the photos up on the wall were one's I had taken - I was secretly a bit chuffed!
