Thank you soooooo much” mike you did such a fantastic job as our wedding photographer in Somerset, the photos brought tears to my eyes, they are beautiful all we can say is wow!!!!!
I’m sure we have thanked you 100x already but honestly, you and Tracy were professional as well as relaxed from start to finish and actually made our day even more amazing! There were tears from the bride and groom and family when we saw the photos the final results are amazing!!! I suffer anxieties but not once did you make me feel uncomfortable ( I don’t like being centre of attention) but you just kept everything focused and allowed us to get all photos done! Thank you so much for absolutely everything! I will stop going on now, but we will highly recommend you and sure there will be something that you will be booked, for the future.
Arrived home from honeymoon to our gorgeous wedding photographs; we are just blown away. I have watched the Blueray gallery 100 times already and will cherish it forever! The fx works were by far the best thing we did when planning our wedding. Thank you, Mike and Tracy, for being professional photographers on the best day of our lives. Keep doing your amazing work – you will make many people very happy x
No words that I write will express just how happy my husband and I are with our choice of photographer. We opted for the ultimate package and both mike and Tracy were amazing on our wedding day. They both kept us at ease, were unobtrusive and helped us relax. The wedding gallery is amazing all of our photos are beautiful, it’s so much more than we ever expected and I can not thank both mike and Tracy enough. I highly recommend the fx works for any couple getting married. Thank you so much to you both…
I have been involved in photography and videography of wedding’s throughout Somerset and internationally for over 30 years.
During this time, I have had the pleasure of working with companies such as HELLO Magazine, Disney, Sony, Sky Sports and of course being a wedding photographer for many beautiful couples on their wedding day.
I take great pride in showcasing the beauty of Somerset. When you have fantastic scenery, capturing special moments with a wide range of still images and complimenting them with cinematic film is a joy.
It makes for the best that this beautiful part of the world has to offer. The area has so many picturesque towns that being a Bath wedding photographer as an example brings out some of my best work.
My clients become friends as we engage with you to make sure your day is unforgettable. So, please call me Mike.
From my years of experience, I fully understand the enormous amount of planning and preparation that goes into one of the biggest days of your life.
So, getting to know you personally and spending time with you as far in advance as possible reaps great rewards on the day for you and me as your wedding photographer.
Remember the work I conduct for you on the day will last longer than a lifetime, so preparation is the key.
Once we are comfortable with each other, it shows on the day. The images and video become natural and enhance the entire experience.
I absolutely love taking photos of people but also things in everyday life that capture my attention. Also, living in this beautiful county of Somerset provides wonderful scenery for landscape photography, especially where there are amazing hidden gems just on our doorstep.
Of course, many will tell you that style is paramount; this comment is true when considering the finished photography. Still, if you are speaking in terms of how to capture those images, then the wedding photography and videography is absolutely about your style; that’s paramount, not my style. It has to match you as a couple, and you must feel confident and at ease with me as your wedding photographer, then your personalities will shine through.
I love to spend a little time with the newlyweds to capture their images away from the guests. I work with my clients to ensure the photos are natural. If you love beautiful, natural and not pre-contrived photograph’s, my photography is for you. I make no apologies when I say those unnatural, at times, embarrassing poses are not part of my technique.
What I look to achieve is to enhance how you feel on your wedding day that becomes evident in your photographs. In my early years, I was heavily influenced by magazine photography, as it captures both light and life without over-editing.
I have always felt that when a photo is taken with passion, this powerfully translates into the final image. Indeed, photography is a powerful medium of expression and communication, which is perfect for capturing those little moments of your big day.
In my experience, your wedding photographer should be everywhere on the day but hardly be seen.
As picture the scene where throughout your day, the person(s) conducting photography and videography are continually interrupting and being demanding of you. I always look to ensure that everything is natural, and you concentrate on enjoying the moment.
I call this ‘the art of understanding space’. Once you have chosen a venue, I work diligently to understand how space and logistics can work to create the best outcome. I consider daylight hours, including the number of guests and the amount of time to be spent inside and outside of the venue.
As your wedding photographer, I look to devise a plan for the day. We discuss what primary and secondary photos and video you prefer from our range of options—allowing me to cover the space effectively throughout the day.
We have had the fabulous privilege of photographing wedding’s in the wonderful county of Somerset for many years and have recorded many wedding’s here and of course farther afield.
My beautiful wife, Tracy, works alongside me before and during the day. We have had many happy years of photography and videography together.
Tracy adds the feminine touch to the finer details and always ensures the brides dress, makeup and hair are looking beautiful for the day. She also ensures the romantic images are stunning.
As a team, we really like to get to know you and between us can give you helpful tips and advice that you may not have considered.
We are here to provide you with the best service available and ensure your memories last forever.
