A little about what I photograph.

Wedding Photography Plan

Weddings are one of the greatest and most emotional days of a couples life that is shared with family and friends. My job is to capture that special day and give it back to you to so you can look back and smile for many years.

Portrait Photography

Portrait photography can be done in so many different ways ranging from the studio high key and low key look, to the natural outdoors or home environment lifestyle shots. You decide what suits you best.

Commercial Photography

If you are a business large or small, a restaurant or a cafe, an estate agent and you need to promote your business with photographs of what you do then you need to talk to me.

This is what they say about me...

MC Photography did the photographs for our wedding and we weren’t disappointed, he did a fantastic job, met with us before to go through a list of all the shots & group shots we wanted, and the style we wanted. Ours was a very relaxed day and MC Photography did a great job ensuring a mixture of traditional shots as well as capturing people as they enjoyed the day. We have already booked him again for a family photo shoot, and I have no hesitation in highly recommending MC Photography North East.

- Claire Brenner

Excellent photos. Professionally done in a very relaxed atmosphere. I’d would recommend MC Photography to anyone who wants brilliant photograph at a very affordable price.

- Glenn McLaren

Thank you so much for the fabulous photos from our recent birthday party. We all love them and they capture the day brilliantly. No mean feat to get such super pictures when they involved toddlers, animals and some “merry” guests. Thanks again, and wouldn’t hesitate to book for other occasions.

- Alison Green

Thank you so much for such amazing photographs of me and my family. Would definitely recommend MC photography and will be using again next time I’m in need of a photographer. Love the fact he went that extra mile and done some of our photos black and white for us and also put them on a memory stick. Worth every penny and more! Thank you so much.

- Alisha Stephenson

“We had a great day with Michael doing the photo shoot. The photographs turned out amazing and we as a family are really happy with them. I would definitely recommend MC Photography.”

- Dean Barker

So hard getting some of the family together to do the photo shoot.Michael made everyone feel so relaxed and also made it fun whilst being very professional.I would make no hesitation recommending MC Photography and will most certainly be using Michael again.
