I have been a photographer full-time for 2 years now and part-time for 5 years.
I first picked up a film camera in my teens and was obsessed... especially developing my images in the dark room. Then life got in the way and the fire in my soul didn't return until my oldest child was born!
Digital Camera was AMAZING... little did I know this was going to become my new career and no more finance job. I was just so happy to document my kids!!
Photography is something I fall more and more in LOVE with every single time I shoot.
I'm so stoked to be able to capture peoples greatest moments in life and provide them with that lasting memories that they can hold onto forever.
it’s my duty to make sure all of my couples know how hard I will always work for them and prove my appreciation to them during and long after our shoot or wedding day
I LOVE GIVING YOU ALL OF THE RESOURCES AND KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE GAINED OVER THE LAST HANDFUL OF YEARS...
I want to be apart of every single moment of your day, and the one you lean on when you need help with anything. Need help picking out a location? Picking out your dress? Hiring vendors? Need a celebrant? Florist? Makeup Artist?
I got you all covered.
When I’m not behind the lens I love spending time with my hubby and our kids.
On a normal day you can catch me with a cup full of tea, hair in a high messy bun, snuggled on the couch with my little fam, in Peter Alexander PJ's or tees with leggings, listening to records, binging rom com’s on Netflix, and let’s be real…..sleeping, your girl loves naps! Only when my kids allow me...
I love Cacti!!!! even have my own garden in the front yard....
Travelling in our caravan is what we love to do in our spare time as family. Going on Adventures to new places and hence why Im always up for destination weddings! We always make it a family trip away.
Yeah.... very laid back! IM that girl who jumps on the d-floor with your fam when her jam starts to play! I will have a chat to everyone and then I become that guest at your wedding who has a really cool camera who is havng a beer with you to celebrate! ! But.. your definitely my number1 and I make sure your day is EPIC.
Let’s be honest, there are so many beautiful, incredible photographers out there. Many of them are people I’ve been privileged to call friends. I’m not going to tell you I’m better than they are - the truth is art is a personal thing that touches everyone differently. We all have our own unique style and creative vision that we uniquely bring to this world.
My style is retro/boho and candid, my goal is to showcase you in all your glory. Between the happy tears, belly laughs, heartfelt hugs, and champagne toasts or showers you better believe I'll be there making sure all the good vibes are on record for you to relive, over and over again!
So many of my clients have not been in front of a camera before or don't like public affection...
I promise not to pose you like your deb photos! I like giving direction and guidance all while making sure I capture you in your element where the true love and real emotions come out.
"I cannot rate Mickala’s service any higher. Always available to answer any questions and her enthusiasm is infectious. We booked based on recommendation and only got to meet Mickala on the day but it was like we had known her previously. Everything was perfect."
Always dreamed of having pure Mac as my wedding photographer, not only for her positive vibes but her amazing skills! She tailored our package to suit what we wanted for the day and because of that I was able to have my dream photographer for our special day
Mickala went above and beyond to help us on our special day. She not only took the most amazing photos but she pretty much helped us plan the whole thing! We had so much fun with Mickala, and now feel like we have gained a friend for life. I would 100% recommend her to all our family and friends for any photography needs as she is the queen of the camera xx
