Quality and fabulous

Michelle is EXCEPTIONAL. I had followed her on social media for a few years and I saw her photography journey grow. I had already met Michelle in a previous job and knew her as a lovely, bubbly and fun person with a great vision. I had already made my mind up to have Michelle when we got engaged. The write up on Michelle's website sums her brand up perfectly, she is a 'photographer with an abundance of positive energy to help calm your nerves, keep things on track and sort any issues so you're not stressing.' This is exactly what she did. She even compromised with our rainy wedding day and took some fantastic indoor shots. The best service and quality you should expect for your wedding, but with a definite added bit of fun and pwrsonality. Could not recommend her higher! Thank you again!

Above and beyond expectations!

We organised our wedding from New Zealand. Therefore most of our wedding research was done online.
Michelle’s bio caught my attention, out of the 20 I read she was the only one who felt right to contact.
We met in person two months before the wedding. We formed an instant connection and felt assured that Michelle understood our brief and would capture our special day perfectly. Michelle went above and beyond!
We love our photographs and our New Zealand family felt as though they where with us!

Capturing the perfect moments ✨

We knew that our wedding day had to be captured by amazing Michelle, she has the ability to get those real natural shots but also has a wonderful energy about herself, the get up and go to get guests together for those big group shots and even creative ideas to give your photos a unique aspect. We loved them so much we even had to ask her back to be the photographer at our big birthday celebrations. Highly recommend ✨

Amazing photographer!

Michelle was the photographer for our wedding back in March. She is amazing we would definitely recommend her!!
From when we first met her at the engagement photoshoot she was so friendly and made us feel relaxed. We are very happy with our wedding photos, she captured every aspect of the day, and got some beautiful photos of us and our family and friends that we will treasure forever.
She was so organised on the wedding day as well, and got all the couple photos done efficiently so that we weren’t taken away from the party for too long!
Thank you so much Michelle 😊

Wedding photographer

Michelle was fantastic! We had a pre-wedding shoot where she got to know us and give advice on what to expect on the big day. She arrived to the wedding and got to work immediately, making sure she was floating between the bridal party and the groomsmen to capture every moment, we have some very special shots that tell the story of our day from both perspectives. She managed to get candid shots which caputured the essence of our whole day. We stop looking at them all. We have had so many positive compliments from our guests about Michelle and how friendly and professional she was. l already expectations were massively exceeded! We are in LOVE with out pictures.
