Welcome to Michelle Mercer Photography

 My style is relaxed, genuine & most importantly unobtrusive

Your wedding photography by Newcastle Wedding Photographer Michelle Mercer

As a Newcastle Wedding Photographer I love all the emotion, excitement and joy wrapped up in one special day.  Your wedding is such a wonderful day.  All of your family and friends coming together to celebrate your love and commitment, and I have the huge privilege of being there to capture everything.

My main aim is to offer a relaxed and unobtrusive approach to wedding photography.  For the majority of the day, I aim to blend into the background and capture the day, letting it all unfold naturally – the laughter, the tears, (happy tears!) the excitement and the joy.  The bits you see – and the moments that you don’t – it is all part of your story and this is what I love to tell.

Your family portraits

I provide authentic children’s portraiture and family photography. I pride myself in capturing beautiful portraits of your children and family that you (and one day your children) will fall in love with and treasure for a lifetime.  My approach is to embrace that every child is unique, with an imaginative and inquisitive mind and I adore exploring that.

I believe that the more fun and interesting the photo shoot is, the more happily your children will take part in it.  It’s hard to make children settle down and pose for a photograph and of course someone will always say “Cheese” or command them to “Smile” and that is why a fun and interactive approach needs to be taken. I mix traditional poses with interactive and engaging activities in order to take the best photographs. I care about providing you with the very best artistic and emotive images because they are the most precious people in your life. For more information and my portrait portfolio please visit my family portraits page.

You might be thinking that you aren’t photogenic or that you hate having your photo taken — I promise you that my photo shoots are easy and fun and it is an experience that you will really enjoy.

Why book me?

My couples book me because they like my relaxed, natural portrait photographs.  I am a people person by nature and love to chat.  Feedback from my clients has been that I made them feel very comfortable in front of the camera.  When you are relaxed and feeling confident you can lose yourself in a moment, often   my favourite photograph from a wedding day is the one where a couple are lost in the moment with each other, a stolen glance or loving touch that paces in a minute but captured forever because they had forgotten that the camera is on them.  On your wedding day, you will be so caught up in the atmosphere and excitement of the day that I promise you will be so much less conscious of the camera and focus on your wonderful day.

Of course my primary role is to capture the day, but I will do my utmost to take any stress away from my bride and groom.  I am an expert and button-hole-pinning, advisor on timing, grandparent escorted and children’s entertainer.

I am also a member of the Guild of Photographers and am proud to be a listed member in the Wedding Links Galore wedding directory.
