Michaela was kind enough to help us out at short notice when we decided to go ahead with our wedding during Covid-19 restrictions earlier this year. I had one main rule – virtually be invisible and get natural shots of the day. Michaela was perfect, with suggestions for some subtle shots and she was never invasive or bossy (my biggest fear!) it was a pleasure to work with her. She even helped me get into my dress and formally witnessed our marriage seeing as we weren’t allowed guests – we are so grateful for her help and highly recommend her for weddings and events.

We chose Winbas Photography as we met Michaela at a function and she understood our requirements straight away for our wedding. Michaela was flexible with her timing for our big day and made some great suggestions which we incorporated into our running sheet. She completely captured the mood of the day, with perfect formal and beautiful informal shots. The love and laughter that Michaela framed says it all, and we have all the best memories of our day. We can’t thank Michaela enough for all her work. We would recommend Michaela for any event, she is so delightful to be around. Thank you Michaela – you are a blessed with a beautiful personality and an eye for the perfect photo!! Thank you thank you!!

Michaela was THE best photographer for our wedding day. She was incredibly easy to communicate with, and had such a lovely, warm, cheerful manner from start to end. She genuinely adores weddings, and worked quickly so we got our photos within a really short time (without us asking)- that was exceptional! She’s worked with a lot of Chinese families so she understood immediately the significance of the tea ceremony, and got brilliant photos from that part of the celebration, too. She also got along beautifully with our families, and we will treasure our photos from her forever. Michaela also does newborn photography- that will make it easy to find a great photographer for the next step in life, huh? Thank you Michaela and Winbas Photography for your wonderful work!

Michaela is an enthusiastic and all round amazing photographer. As the wedding was a small intimate family event we wanted a photographer to capture the special moments without our guests having to take photos and missing our committment to each other. Michaela has completed this with beautiful photos to cherish of the day. I cannot recommend Michaela highly enough!! Thank you so much.

It was such a wonderful experience shooting with Mic. Although we had awful conditions to contend with (wind and rain) she maintained professional and helped turn what could have been an absolute disaster into some lovely moments we’ll always rember. Friendly and a joy to work with.
