Photography is capturing the extra-ordinary in an ordinary world.
My name is Michael and I’m a professional wedding photographer, based in Hartlepool and working nationally (with the occasional overseas wedding!)
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. My goal is for you to enjoy that day, while capturing every treasured moment that you’ll look back on in years to come with great happiness.
My style is very relaxed, blending into the background, but capturing everything. I love being creative and working with light and flash to create ‘Wow’ images, that really grab the attention.
Photography has been in my blood since I was very young. Excelling in art at school, I then went onto Art College, specialising in Photography, Studio and Darkroom techniques. I then studied at degree level and started my own business some time after. I have a passion for weddings, nothing makes me happier than seeing couples in love and going home knowing I have done a great job.
We absolutely could not recommend Michael enough. From beginning to end, nothing was too much trouble and he truly listened to everything we wanted; which made our day all that more special. For us, what was even more special, was that we felt he truly invested in us as a couple and wanted to make our day perfect- Which it was! He was a perfect fit for us, relaxed, professional and amazing at his job! Our pictures and video speak for themselves!!
WOW!! We are so in love with the pictures from our special day! Watching the video slideshow was like being back in the actual day doing it all again.
Michael was so professional, yet very friendly and calming throughout. He certainly has an eye for detail and has created some amazing photographs. We cannot thank him enough. Receiving these images has been the final ‘icing on the cake’ to making our wedding a memorable occasion.
In years to come I know I will think I wished I had done some things differently, but one of those things will not be my choice of photographer!Simmone Anderson
Michael was amazing from the first time we met him. He talked us through everything so he knew exactly what sort of photos we wanted & was always very responsive if we had any questions. On the day itself he put everyone at ease, able to gather guests together when he needed too & at other times just blend into the background. Even the other suppliers commented how great he was to work with. The photos he produced were absolutely stunning & really captured the spirit of our day. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough!!!Claire Morrell
