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 the winner of the Highly Commended Award for Essex Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2016, and 2017/2018 at the Essex Wedding Awards; and I proudly hold the 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 and 2017 UK Wedding Awards, hosted by Hitched.co.uk in the Wedding Photographer of the Year category. I also have the honour of shortlisted finalist in the 2018 British Wedding Awards.

My most recent accolade is being chosen as a winner of the Theo Paphitis Small Business of the Week Award in late 2017.


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.
