About Mike French Photographer

You’re looking for someone to be more than a photographer – someone to engage and mix with your guests, capturing the once in a lifetime moments as they happen.

In 2019, my wife, daughter and I finally moved back to Portishead where we grew up (my name is on the wall in the main hall at Gordano School) and it feels like we have come home. I am a professional photographer and graphic designer working with clients across the country. For me, wedding photography is a wonderful way to diversify and use the skills from high pressure commercial environments in a more personable way.

As you can see from the examples on my website, I have a very informal style of photographing your wedding day and I pride myself at being good with making people feel at ease in front of the camera – I discovered how hard it is when I got married myself!

My style is very reportage and I enjoy being close to the action capturing peoples candid emotions. Luckily, I also have a loud voice and enjoy taking charge for the more formal group shots.
