The best wedding photographer around

If you're on the hunt for a wedding photographer, look no further: Mike's the one. He was such a joy to have around on our wedding day. He was patient and kind, and really good at putting us at ease on the day. He has such a talent for capturing hidden moments and finding cool, interesting angles. We're SO, so happy we booked him: our guests are still raving about how lovely our photographer was.

Excellent, Friendly, Photographer

Mike was our photographer for our wedding in September and we are over the moon with our pictures. He took the time to meet with us before the big day to make sure that he knew the type of pictures we wanted. He came around the morning of the wedding and took pictures of the bridal party getting ready and was really discreet about being there. He was polite to everyone on the day making sure everyone got together for pictures and capturing the special moments. We are really happy with the service he provided on the day and would highly recommend him to other people to use. Thanks Mike. Jen and Rick xx

“Mike managed to perfectly capture our day whilst being so unobtrusive that many of our guests never even knew we had a professional photographer! Which was just what we wanted”

Amazing natural shots

“We wanted the photographs to tell the story of the day and Mike did this perfectly! His natural shots were amazing, better than I could ever have imagined. We liked Mike’s alternative, unique and quirky style this made him stand out from everyone else. We also instantly knew he understood exactly what we wanted.”

"We would just like to send you a big thank you for the services you provided on our wedding day. You created a really relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Our photos are truly amazing. They bring back all the emotions of the day, our laughter, tears and joy and will be cherished for many years to come. Our wedding album is fantastic. We couldn't have asked for better. Everyone who we have shown our album to has been so impressed with the quality and creativity of the photos, which perfectly capture everything about our perfect day. I never get tired of looking at the wonderful pictures. We will be recommending you to our friends when they get married for sure!"
