Gabi & Raúl:
"From our very first email exchange and Skype conversation we knew Michael was the one. He's so charming, positive, and vibrant that even in the earliest of conversations his personality shines through the distance and screens between himself and clients. From day 1 to day-of (and ever after) Michael has been attentive, warm, and adaptable. Leading up to the event he made sure to keep in touch, if only to say hello and express his growing excitement. During the wedding, he blended in so well that we felt his energy but didn't even notice the camera (or him too much, as he can somehow be everywhere at once). And now, just two weeks later, he has sent over the most breath-taking, eye-welling, giggle-inducing, magical photographs of the happiest weekend of our lives.
We haven't been able to stop scrolling through the images he sent us and laughing, crying, and aw-ing in turn. Michael is an exceptional photographer, with an incredible ability to capture truly candid moments, these expressions and emotions that would otherwise flicker by and... well, his work speaks for itself. But as for him?
Michael exemplifies the great distinction between service and hospitality. Service is fine: transactional, detached, and straight to the point. Hospitality goes beyond that: it is about giving, intimacy, and all in the details. Hospitality is an act of love. Michael's manner and work speak more to those virtues that than any vendor we could have dreamed of. Throughout this process, he has become closer to friend and family. We could not be more fortunate to have had him as such an important part of the goofiest, funnest, most perfect day ever. Thanks, Michael! We love ya. xoxo, gabi & raúl"
Sarah & Blake:
"Michael is an absolute gem. Beyond his exceptional talent for capturing the subtle, candid, and genuine moments, he’s perhaps the most professional person we worked with throughout the entire wedding process; if all things wedding planning were as comfortable, effortless, and well-executed as working with Michael, we would call it a vacation! He’s completely unobtrusive and blended in as a guest throughout our wedding weekend.
We were impressed by the turnaround time of our final photos. He sent us a handful of some of his favourite shots within days of the event, a fully edited set of photos available for viewing/downloading within two weeks, and a USB in the mail a week after that. We would love to have an excuse to work with him again for an event at some point in our lives together!"
Chris & Anna:
"Michael was brilliant. From our first contact with him all the way up until now (3 weeks after the wedding) his communication has been excellent. We met Michael a couple of times before the wedding to discuss exactly what we wanted and to run through the logistics of the day. He is very personable and really easy to talk to. It felt like we were talking to a friend; he really put us at ease and filled us with confidence.
On the day Michael blended in so well. He was unobtrusive in his work but took truly amazing pictures. His manner with our guests was perfect and everyone commented on how polite and professional he was. We had agreed that he would join us at midday and stay until after the first dance which was supposed to happen around 8pm. Unfortunately our timings overran quite a bit, but Michael was happy to stay and even got quite a few shots well after the first dance!
We were incredibly impressed by the time it took to receive the photos too! We had all of them back and available for viewing/downloading from his website within two weeks. We didn't realised it would be so quick! And the amount of photos we received was amazing. They are all really great photos. Very impressed.
We would 100% recommend Michael to anyone out there who is looking for a wedding photographer. He is really excellent, and we are both really thankful for his work."
Marta & Peter:
"I looked at the photos (and have looked at them over and over again - I can't stop). They are amazing! Everyone is in shock with how good they are and with the talent you possess. Thank you so much for spending the day with us. You did an outstanding job capturing everyone's expressions of joy. They are truly incredible..."
"I will never tire of these extraordinary, unforgettable photos. What a gifted photographer..." - Mother of the groom
Phoebe & Tom:
"Michael is an excellent wedding photographer, he is organised, super-friendly (but not overly so, such that it's intrusive in any way), discreet, but most of all, takes absolutely amazing photographs, capturing the essence of people and the emotions of the day rather than just the scene. Thank you Michael!"
Elisha & Jonus:
"Michael photographed both our pre-wedding shoot and our wedding and he was amazing in every way !! He made us both feel very relaxed, and blended in so well we didn't even know he was there but he captured the most beautiful selection of photos. Communication was very easy and he was always at the end of the phone or emailed back very quickly whenever we had any last minute wedding questions. Our friends and family gave us so many great compliments on our choice of photographer and we are more than happy to give him the highest of recommendations!!"
