A New Orleans wedding. Frank and Romy.

Back in November of 2018 an email popped into my inbox in the early hours of the morning. It was from Frank and Romy.

Wedding Photography at GG’s Yard. Steph and Stu.

Michael Riley Photography

 

I am a a multi award winning UK and destination wedding photographer. Based in Devon, I offer wedding coverage throughout the UK and anywhere else in the world for couples who like my work and approach to a wedding.

 

My wedding photography is entirely unposed, natural & candid. My style is documentary wedding photography or reportage wedding photography which means that I don't intervene in the day for the sake of a shot. I don't pose, interfere or otherwise fuss and faff. Everything is relaxed, laid back and fun allowing for those natural moments to come through and be recorded as memories. You get all the moments observed not orchestrated. If you like the sound of this get in touch via my contact page.
