“Apart from choosing to marry my partner, Mike was the best decision we made for our wedding. My partner and I don’t like photos, but Mike was professional, made us feel comfortable and got some absolutely amazing shots! We are beyond happy with how it all turned out. My grandparents loved him, which says volumes about his character and personality. Thank you Mike for capturing the memories of our special day!” — Jess

FAQ

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.

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.

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! ??????

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!

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.

Yes! My albums and prints are sexy AF! I am currently offering a whole range of beautifully printed products, which are produced in our very own backyard here in Geelong and Melbourne. The Album is an amazing 10 x 10" bound coffee table book customised in a whole range of different options. I also offer museum-quality prints on fine art Lustre paper, and now a hand-torn deckled print. It's really something you have to see in person!

I could go on forever about Mike. We didn't have your everyday standard wedding, we had a small elopement. We tpld we weren't super lovey dovey and he totally took that onboard and made it super cruisy and he was so adaptable and made us feel so comfortable. He captured every moment perfectly and you could really see and feel the emotion and happiness in the photos. When we got our photos we went through all the emotions again and took us right back to the day. Mike was perfect and incredible.
