Questions and Answers

Do you travel for weddings and elopements?

Mike Atchison Photography

Shit yeah! I'm based in Geelong but I'm always up for an adventure! I'm more than happy to travel interstate or to regional VIC. I only charge a travel fee if your wedding or elopement is taking place over 100kms from Geelong.

Do your work with a second shooter?

Mike Atchison Photography

Nope, usually, it’s just me. I feel that in order to get the best candid images, it's best to keep the cameras and flashes to a minimum. However, there are some situations that call for a second photographer for a part of the day. This could be the case if the preparation venues are in vastly separate locations, or if there are specific images you wish to have in your album such as a rear view of walking down the aisle while getting images of your awaiting partner at the front of the crowd. Just ask me during our catch up if you feel you'd like a second photographer.

Will you help us plan our big day?

Mike Atchison Photography

I love to be involved in the whole planning process with my couples. This ain't my first rodeo, so I know the pitfalls that couples can find themselves in. I can see them a mile off and I'm happy to point them out before it causes a hassle for them! Let the wedding planning fire begin! ??????

We're not supermodels. Is that a problem?

Mike Atchison Photography

I don't think I've ever REALLY met a person who loves being in front of a camera. The best thing I can say is that I totally get it! I reckon I'm super awkward when I'm having photos taken too! I've been there, I know what you are feeling during your bridal shoot. I try to keep things candid and in a documentary style as much as I can. If I see a spot of beautiful light, I might position you guys in it and ask you to have a chat with each other or maybe even a sneaky smooch!

The easiest couples to photograph are the ones who let loose and forget I'm there! This is a precious day for both of you, so let your inhibitions go and enjoy spending time with each other while I work to capture those memories forever. Nawwww!

How do we receive our images?

Mike Atchison Photography

The next day after your wedding, I will send you a selection of sneak peek images for you to share with friends and family. From there on, my lead time for delivery of the digital images is roughly four to six weeks. They will be sent to you in both high res (perfect for printing) and low resolution (for social media etc.) I never add watermarks to my work. If you are adding an album to your coverage, the albums usually take around 4 weeks to deliver once the final draft has been approved by you.

Mike was our photographer for our wedding in April 2022, he was an absolute champion in the lead-up to our wedding & on our special day. He went above & beyond for what he did on our day. Our guests still talk about how amazing Mike was with them, he fitted in so well & nothing was too hard for him. Mike has an amazing attitude, he brought so much fun, laughter and happiness to all the wedding party & we will forever be grateful for the incredible photos he captured. We simply cannot recommend Mike enough, you wouldn't want anyone else as your photographer!! We will be doing yearly family photos from now on as we absolutely loved working with you Mike xx

Hi Haylea! Thanks soooo much for the amazing review! I can honestly say your wedding day was one of the most fun and unique wedding days I've had the honour to capture. Ferris wheel heights and all! You and Kurt have a beautiful family, and I loved hanging out with your all on your special day! I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you and Kurt. I'll be waiting for baby news now! Love you guys! x

What can I say other than Mike is fantastic! From the first time we scrolled through his previous work and met up with him via video chat, we knew he was The One. Mike is an absolute ball of energy right from the get-go; he is so easy-going and great to deal with, I honestly could not recommend him highly enough! He was easily one of the highlights of our wedding day, all of our guests absolutely loved him: from his energy and enthusiasm, joining us for a boogie on the dance floor, to his dual-wielding cameras and harness; they couldn’t get enough of him. We have received so many compliments on how wonderful our photographer and photos are, and I couldn’t agree more. They are so beautiful we’re struggling to pick which ones to print and hang in our house!

Hi Sarah! Thank you so much for your beautiful review! You guys had one of my absolute favourite weddings to date, and I couldn’t be any more grateful to have played a part in it. And as far as being an honorary member of the fam… well, I’m bloody stoked, and I’ll see y’all at Christmas haha! You. Guys. ROCK! ❤️🤘🏻

There are almost too many words to describe how awesome this guy is! So easy, laid back, accommodating, and hilarious with dad jokes! Photos surpass any expectation of how you would think they would look. Definitely recommend!

Mike Atchison Photography  

Hey Jess! Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review! I'm stoked that you had such a great experience with me. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience and that I exceeded your expectations. And I'm truly thankful that I could provide you with beautiful photos of your wedding day that you can be proud of for years to come. Love you guys! Mike

My husband and I wanted a very relaxed wedding - stress free and fun and we got that + more with Mike. Mike was fantastic from the get-go, from our first meeting during lockdown (he sent us hot chocolates & cake inc for our daughter) through to wedding night when we were given polaroid photos on the night, which was such a lovely surprise. Mike introduced himself to our other suppliers (which is very rare) and made sure all were on the same page for the run of the day. When we received our photos, we were able to re-live our entire wedding and Mike captured our amazing day with all the candid moments. We were super surprised by all the photos Mike took capturing so many wonderful memories that we will treasure FOREVER, including the exact moment my father slipped and I caught him 🤪!

Hey Crystal! Thanks so much for dropping this amazing review! Your's and Ian's wedding day was bloody amazing and I'm so grateful I was there to capture all of your most precious moments. You guys know how to throw one helluva party! Thank you (also!) to your beautiful family for welcoming me into the fold for the day. From Colin's Cocktail attire and Lis' beautiful garnet necklace to the Pipe band and the slippery Taco. You guys had it all, and it was EPIC! Much love and sincere thanks. Mike

Mike did an exceptional job photographing our wedding. From start to finish the process was made simple and straightforward. Leading up to the day Mike worked with us to establish what we were hoping for from our photos and made us feel very comfortable and at ease on the day. The results were nothing short of amazing. We would recommend Mike to anybody looking for a thoughtful, considered, talented and professional photographer.
