As a romantic at heart, Michael loves weddings and strives to capture those precious moments that will remind you of your special day in the years to come. Those romantic touches, the fleeting expressions, the antics of the children, the laughs, the tears, all these things make up the day. At 6’3” Michael has both the cadence to take control where necessary and the ability to melt into the background to catch those candid pictures.
Whether you want contemporary photos, formal groups, informal poses or candids then Michael is your man; as he says, “It is the bride’s day and what she wants is paramount!”
Michael has always insisted on giving his clients value for money but he won’t cut corners on quality to keep the prices down. All Michael’s albums are top of the range, they are individually designed in-house by his partner Pearl then printed and hand finished in Italy by Graphistudio, the world leaders in producing superb quality albums – there are no additional costs for these!
Michael has included four of the most popular surfaces for album exteriors in his packages but there are over 300 more to choose from if you wish to further customise your album. You can also choose from a variety of surfaces and thicknesses for your interior ages.
If you are based in the North West, including Cheshire, Manchester, Chester, Wirral, Michael’s wedding photography packages are very comprehensive and include many items normally charged as extras, e.g. the very popular Gold package offers a free consultation to discuss your needs, photographic coverage from bridal preparation to first dance, 400-550 proofs in a private online area, a 30 page 14”X10” main album, 2 A5 parent albums with exactly the same page layouts, two 10”X8” and one 18”X12” framed prints, 50 thank you cards, a DVD of copyright free, high resolution images of your album choice and even a choice of having some of these manipulated to be black and white, sepia or combined colour and black and white images.
How much is the 2015 Gold package - £1395 that’s all, what more can you ask for in a wedding package?
Perhaps you would like more album pages, extra albums, enlargements, canvas bonded prints, a briefcase to keep the album in or even wallet sized replicas of your main album? That’s absolutely fine, all of these are available as extras.
That’s not all, Graphistudio are world leaders in the innovation of new products, and are constantly bringing out exciting new products – they have spent 10 years developing the technology for the Digital Matted Album [DMA] which allows us to use raised varnish in patterns and shapes to enhance our images and to create a tactile 3D effect – this is a ‘must see’ and ‘must touch’ as the computer screen cannot do it justice.
You can see some samples of our album design work in our Wedding Gallery area. While you are there, if you would like a sneak preview of Graphistudio’s latest products then check out the videos in our Graphistudio section.
If you live in the North West, including Cheshire, Manchester, Chester, Wirral and you are interested to find out more details about our wedding photography packages, please give us a call and we will be happy to help.
New Streamlined Packages for 2016
As we enter the New Year Mike and Pearl have decided to add some exciting new economy versions of their top of the range packages.
You will still get the same personal touch from the initial free consultation to the custom design of your album.
You will still get the same friendly approach and amazing photography.
You will still get a beautiful bespoke Graphistudio album, designed by us and hand produced in Italy.
So what is the difference? Well, we have streamlined our largest, most comprehensive packages. You will still get the same photographic coverage from Bridal Preparation through to the Speeches or to the First Dance but by removing the parent albums, the thank you cards and the framed enlargements we can offer you lower package prices.
You now have more choice, whether you don’t need these items or are just wanting to save money you will benefit either way.
Look out for details of our next wedding fayre across the North West and you can see and handle the latest offerings such as the Young Book and the [DMA] both unique to Graphistudio.
