My name is Michael and i’m a professional videographer from Birmingham, UK.
After creating my first professional video aged sixteen, I instantly fell in love with film-making and have been working in the industry ever since.
With experience in the sports, corporate and wedding video industries, I set up my own business in 2017 and now specialise in wedding videos.
In 2018, I was nominated for Best Local Film and Best Short Film at Birmingham Film Festival.
I aim to offer a personal service - something frequently missing from larger corporate production companies.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What services do you offer?
Wedding Videography & Photography
What does your wedding package include?
I like to keep my wedding packages very simple. Too many wedding video companies over charge for “optional extras” that should always be included. Below are my two available packages.WEDDING VIDEO PACKAGE | £850What’s included?One Videographer10 hours of filmingBridal & Groom preparationsCeremonyWedding receptionSpeechesCake cuttingFirst danceDrone footage3 minute wedding highlights video15-30 minute extended wedding highlights videoSpeeches in full WEDDING VIDEO & PHOTO PACKAGE | £1750What’s included?One VideographerOne Photographer10 hours of filming & photographingBridal & Groom preparationsCeremonyWedding receptionSpeechesCake cuttingFirst danceDrone footage3 minute wedding highlights video15-30 minute extended wedding highlights videoSpeeches in full 300 digital photographs (all original files available free of charge)
How far in advance should I contact you?
In order to guarantee your booking, I advise getting in touch as soon as possible. However, a late enquiry does not necessarily mean that I won't be available.
Do you cover more than one wedding per day?
I personally only cover one wedding per day. However, I do have a great team of videographers who can cover multiple weddings a day.
Are you able to travel?
Yes. I'm centrally located in Birmingham, so happy to travel anywhere in the UK and also abroad.
Is there a charge for travelling?
If the wedding is over 50 miles away from Birmingham, I do ask for a small fee to cover petrol. This fee will not exceed £50.00.
What kind of technology do you use?
I use broadcast quality cameras. My main camera is Panasonic GH5S. I also have professional lighting, grip and drone equipment.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I like to keep things simple. I have two flat day rates - £850 for a wedding video and £1750 for wedding video and photos.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes, I am happy to work extra hours if needed.
What are the forms of payment?
I ask for a 25% deposit upon booking, with the remaining balance to be paid once all videos and photos have been delivered.
How do you work?
I like to create a relaxed and unintrusive atmosphere. It is perfectly natural for brides and grooms to feel nervous on their wedding day, so I like to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible in order to create the best quality video.

I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.
Michael was an excellent wedding videographer. He was not intrusive and he captured some amazing moments. It was wonderful to watch our special day back and the creative way he had pieced together our day was excellent. He was also flexible and a perfectionist, who was willing to work on our video until we were completely satisfied, making it completely personalised to us. All our family thought the highlights video was magical. He was also very competitively priced and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.Sent on 16/12/2019

Absolutely over the moon with our wedding video.
Absolutely over the moon with our wedding video. Captured our best moments and made the whole film special for us. What a wonderful way to remember our most special day. We would highly recommend Michael as he was such a nice and decent man, very down to earth and really relaxed us. Hardly knew he was there. Thank you so much Michael. All the best.Sent on 16/12/2019
