Hi, I'm a wedding photographer based in Market Harborough. I've been photographing events for more than 12 years. I love weddings though! The details, people's interactions, attire, flowers, the laughter and tears, the colours, happiness and love, all the elements of surprise and emotions which all create an event one should truly be able to remember. Whether Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland or beyond, including international locations I always adjust to your individual needs but remain unobtrusive in delivering a reportage documentary wedding photography. I aim to document but also to tell a story of Your wedding through photography.
An observer, not participant...
If you're looking for a reportage and documentary style of your wedding day then I'm pleased to say that it is my preferred style of shooting and telling Your wedding day story. I aim to capture both formal and candid moments of your wedding therefore remain unobtrusive and always open to suggestions from either the bride party or guests.
I cannot imagine coming to your Wedding having to meet you once only therefore every package includes a pre-wedding photo shoot either outdoor at your favourite park, leisure spot, etc or indoors, which is an informal, casual and fun photo session aimed at showing your interaction and love. This further ensures you are relaxed on the day and you're comfortable with your wedding shoot.
Documentary wedding photography
I appreciate each wedding is different and so is the bride and groom therefore I treat each wedding as a project more than a job.
Although based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire I have traveled around the UK and Europe to provide wedding photography to clients whom I am proud to now call friends.
I started shooting weddings in 2005. Since the start, my work has been featured in the issues of Guides for Brides, Brides, Digital Video and Professional Photographermagazines. The services of photography I offer are always a result of passion and love for documenting the moments that people wish to cherish and remember for years to come.

"""I found Michael extremely helpful all the way through the wedding planning. We met up 3 or 4 times to discuss what we wanted. He also tried his hardest to fit in with our budget. He helped make our day so special and memorable by being there from start to finish capturing everything. He is very good at capturing the moment in a very natural way, I did not want ‘posed’ pictures - I wanted them to be as natural as possible. I now think of Michael as a friend as I am still in touch with him and will definitely recommend to anybody. I will also be sure to use him for any other special event I may have."" Beckie and Alan"

Michael was great on the day and because we had met him before hand five or six times and twice at the venue we were both at ease. We were even more thrilled with the DVD he had put together to most beautiful story of our beautiful day, we are so happy we chose Michael and wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking of having a professional photographer for their big day.We have had copies of individual photos for family and one proud of place in our living room.

"""We were extremely happy with the service and quality of work received by Michael. He was a pleasure to work with and nothing was too much work. We met with him on a number of occasion to thoroughly discuss our requirements and he was always extremely helpful with lots of different ideas. Michael went above and beyond on our day from morning preparations to the evening reception do. We would most definitely use Michael again and would highly recommend him to anyone for his professionalism and his excellent work. We were delighted with the final product and couldn't have wished for more. We were also able to go to Michael for additional prints and canvas prints. Thank you Michael for making our day that extra special."" Vikki & Rob"
