"...so many stories and so much energy, we can really feel the sweep of the day. Thank you again for sharing your gift of what you do." Frank & Romy , New Orleans.
"Thanks for sending those through so quickly - we absolutely love them!

I don't think either of us realised how terrified we looked at the start of
the ceremony! You miss so many small things from the day, so we're glad you
managed to catch so much whilst we were still walking around in a daze.
You've captured the chaos of the evening perfectly too, and I know our
friends will be delighted that you've caught them on their worst
behaviour 😊 Your patience and advice on the day was also very much
Steph & Stu, Gatehouse of Fleet, Scotland.

Having you join us for the wedding was definitely one of the best choices we made for the day. You were so much fun to have around. "Darren & Stewart, Edinburgh.

"Thank you so much. As hoped, they truly capture the energy, excitement and happiness of the day. We’re very pleased indeed. They really are great. I can feel the mood all over again which is just perfect! I love the ones of my dad - you’ve captured one where he looks a little lost in thought and exactly like his Mum. It startled me a little at first! Sophie & Mike, Bristol.

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.
