DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
PHOTOS OF HOW IT FELT – NOT JUST HOW IT LOOKED
“Curator of bottled Nostalgia”
G’day, My name is Joshua Mikhaiel and I’m a documentary wedding & elopement photographer.
If we’re being honest, and by all means, let’s. Wedding photos don’t matter bccause they’re taken in perfect light or with amazingly complex techniques. They matter because the moment mattered that’s in the photo.
The only reason what I do is important is because I deeply believe marriage is important. I wan’t to participate in giving you momentus images that drive your minds and hearts back to the moments that matter.
Documenting your special stories with a deep level of care an honour is what I’m all about. Love & connection drives me to tell you love story beyond the cliche’s and stiff poses to take you back to the feelings that made it all worth it.
Josh!! Those photos I mean we knew you were good, but THOSE PHOTOS! We are SO happy with how our photos turned out. It brought us so much joy reliving the day through your fantastic photos. Seriously we can’t thank you enough. Those photos are so special and we are so grateful
We will absolutely be recommending you to every person we know
Thank you so much again. They are everything we could’ve hoped for.”
HOW I TELL STORIES
Wedding photography for me is much more about story listening than story telling. To do this I believe you have to get inside the story your telling and understand the humans that make it special. I make it my mission on your wedding day to listen, participate and involve myself in your celebration so that I can understand the story I’m telling.
HOW I DESCRIBE MY STYLE
My style is mostly photojournalistic. I strive to capture things in their raw beauty. I’ve always felt most comfortable defining myself as a documentary photographer first and foremost and a wedding photographer second. I wouldn’t even say I “like” wedding photography in any traditional sense of the word. I’ve always love capturing human connection and documenting love and creating art for couples and I’ve accidentally ended up doing weddings.
Things getting pretty serious? Time to take the next step in defining the relationship in this journey of finding your professional third wheel?
I’d love to hear from you and take time to connect with you about your story and how you’re planning to celebrate your love. Hit the button below to get in touch.
