Client Feedback | South West Wedding Awards

25th March 2015

Wow! We’ve just received all this amazing client feedback from The South West Wedding Awards. ?We are truly speechless for all your kind words. Thank you so much!!

I chose Christian Michael as their style of photography was beautiful and natural. The team took us through every step on the day – nothing was too much of an ask, from cracking jokes, tying cravats or paddling in the freezing cold sea to get some of my favourite shots. Even when Christian’s wife was in labour – he stayed till the end. The photos are epic!

We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer on our wedding day, even the lead up and after service was amazing. Christian captured some beautiful images of our big day and we have lots of perfect memories displayed in photo frames all over our house. He was a pleasure to work with and would definitely recommend him to others.

Excellent He just added to our already fabulous day and we were so pleased with the photos that we received. Couldn’t have asked for more.

Amazing photos and fantastic that we can get them re-printed whenever we like.

Christian is an amazing photographer with brilliant people skills. He made me (who isn’t the most camera confident person) and my family feel very comfortable. He knew when to catch the moment and when to step back. I can’t recommend or thank him enough.?

Amazing! Christian gave everything he had and more into making our day special. The photos were breathtaking.

Christian and Samantha have been utterly brilliant all the way through from our first conversation to now when we are sorting out our album. I explained to Christian the importance of the Cornish scenery to me, family shots and the fairytale theme of our day and the way he captured that in our photos is just magical. We made A LOT of demands about what we wanted (specific photos, styles, timings, etc) and Christian went above and beyond to meet them. And what was really valued by us that was on the day his team fitted in perfectly and worked around our guests so despite getting a huge number of shots his presence never felt intrusive. We are genuinely so grateful to have such a wonderful record of our perfect day and couldn’t be more grateful.?

Look no further. If you are looking for a combination of artistic tasteful and fun wedding photos then call Christian. A pleasure to deal with from start to finish and someone that can can totally work around you on your special day.

We love our fantastic wedding photographs!- Chris was very thoughtful and listened to exactly what we wanted. All the guests appreciated his discrete and friendly approach which is reflected in the relaxed and natural photos taken.

Christian and his wife Sam were both amazing on the day. I was trying to get ready with my 9 week old baby in the room which was quite stressful, but Christian took it all in his stride, and was very understanding and good humoured. They both captured the spirit and essence of the day perfectly, and blended in so well that it just felt very relaxed and natural. As well as creating some amazing photographs of us, they also took the time to capture all of our guests, which feels very special. We wanted some lasting memories of our wonderful day having fun at the seaside with our loved ones, and we feel they illustrated that perfectly.

Not only did the photographs capture the love, happiness and excitement of the day just perfectly, the photographers were an absolute delight to have around on our day. They were with us throughout the day but it never felt like they were intruding. They had great ideas for unusual shots as well as more classic shots. We were thrilled with the end product, especially some of the more arty shots and the un-staged shots that caught genuine emotion.

Christian was without a doubt THE best wedding photographer! Not only was he truly fantastic on the big day itself but he was always contactable both before and after the wedding day. Our wedding photos surpassed expectations and the cleverness of Christian was how he captured the day just as I recalled it. Providing a true minute-by-minute account of the day has ensured our memories of such a special day were captured and are with us to treasure forever. Thank you Christian!

Our day was amazing. Our pictures were fantastic. He captured the mood so well. All very natural. Very professional. Friendly guy. Would recommend Christian Michael.

We couldn’t have been happier with the service we received from Christian Michael. He’s friendly, easy to get on with and made us feel relaxed from our initial meeting and throughout the wedding day. He is an incredibly talented photographer and we have so many wonderful photographs to bring back memories of our wedding day.??

Christian was absolutely fantastic throughout our whole day, so calming but unobtrusive. The photos he took, documentary style perfectly captured our day from beginning to end. He managed to encapsulate all of the emotions through the day and he especially caught the stunning scenery surrounding the venue. We wouldn’t have the vivid memories of our wedding that we do if it wasn’t for his photos.

Christian Michael Photography created the absolute perfect wedding photos for us. We honestly couldn’t be happier, Chris even doubled up as a wedding planner for the evening…long story. Highly recommended to anybody and fully deserved of a win here.

Very friendly photographer made the process on the day fun for us and all our guests. Photos beautifully edited and quickly available to us.

Amazing photographer, despite us not being local, the recommendations were spot on, and Christian made everything so easy and perfect for us! Amazing! Xx

We had high expectations with our photography having seen his work on-line and having met with Christian prior to the wedding. He didn’t disappoint, the photos were amazing. On the day Christian was very professional yet his friendly and sometimes amusing approach to capturing the day on film put our guests at ease and a number of them commented on how good he was with everyone from a difficult Mother in Law down to some over excited children. I would definitely recommend Christian again. When our fireworks didn’t arrive on time, he stayed beyond the time agreed, despite them not making an appearance.

As soon as we saw Christian’s website we knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding. The photos we have received have truly captured our day wonderfully. Both Christian and Sam were friendly, professional with us and our guests. Most of the time we never knew they were there. We both can’t stop looking at the photos – I see more in them every time, and our friends and family love them just as much as we do.

Christian did an excellent job at our wedding, his commitment and energy were off the charts. He kept our guests laughing and engaged throughout, and has captured some truly amazing shots of the day. I’d recommend Christian to anyone. His demeanour and love for his work means he delivers a truly amazing service.

Sam and Christian are a dream couple to work with and we have been delighted with all aspects of their service and product from prep through to after event service.? I would recommend them very highly and would particularly praise their customer service (Sam) and personality on the day of the wedding (Christian)?

Christian Michael Photgraphy were outstanding. They took beautiful photos of our wedding, using a reportage style that really captured our day (and also ensured that real moments were captured, not posed and constructed moments). Looking through the photos – which they provided both in colour and black and white – tells the story of our happy day. They were very professional, and managed to get a stunning series of bride and groom couple shots after the wedding in only around 15 minutes, which meant that we were actually able to enjoy our time with our guests rather than being taken away for hours posing for photos as at many weddings we have attended. Christian and his wife Samantha also went above and beyond the call of duty, and helped us to get our wedding video finalised when we were having problems with a videographer who had gone AWOL. We are very grateful for their help with this. As we liked their work so much, we also got Christian Michael to put together a wedding album for us, which is just gorgeous. We have received many compliments from family and friends who have said that our wedding photos are something special, and the best they have seen.

Fantastic guy, great communication, wonderful pictures. His organisation of group shots is outstanding and he was able to perfectly capture the day – highly recommended!
