Since I founded David Michael Photography in 2004, my studio has grown to become one of the most popular wedding photographer suppliers in the UK. Today, I boast over a decade worth of experience, and have carefully shot and documented in excess of 600 weddings spanning the UK, Spain and Italy.
I’m very proud to have recently won the UK Wedding Art Fashion Award at the International Master Photography Awards. This is my most treasured award to date, as it was judged by eighteen reputable judges from different countries of the world. I’ve been a finalist for the Essex Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2014, 2015, and winner of the 2016 Highly Commended Award at the Essex Wedding Awards; and I proudly hold the current title of the Most Popular Photographer in the World as recognised by the Wedding Industry Expert Awards 2016.
Further notable accolades include being a shortlisted finalist at the 2016 UK Wedding Awards, hosted by Hitched.co.uk in the Wedding Photographer of the Year category.
I’m continually challenged and inspired in equal measure by those whom I photograph. The most subtle of smiles or emotions, the quiet exchanges between people, and the ways in which key moments can be captured as they happen, serve as my focal points.
This is my signature style and in my industry it may best be described as ‘documentary’, ‘reportage’ or ‘photojournalism’; regardless of the official title, I like to describe this approach to my craft as a series of singular moments – where my subjects’ thoughts and feelings are encapsulated forever.
