"Michelle made the photo session loads of fun and we are thrilled with the photos we received."

Anna and Robbie
"Michelle was a fantastic wedding photographer, we were completely confident in her from the first meeting we had.  On the day she had an unobtrusive, relaxed but professional manner which ensured we were able to just be  & ourselves enjoy the moment.  As a result she was able to capture the mood of our day perfectly.  We got a large number of amazing photo's & she also created a gorgeous album for us to remember our special day"
Many thanks, Anna & Robbie Skerten

Welcome to MD Photography

Welcome to MD Photography. I am an NZQA qualified Professional Photographer based in South Canterbury,  My photographic services include all aspects of professional photography, including but not limited to

  • Wedding photography
  • Commercial photography
  • Event photography
  • Advertising photography
  • Portrait/family photography

I have shot many events and portraits throughout the years and to date I have shot over 300 weddings both in New Zealand and overseas. I love chocolate and trademe, reggae and rollerderby and I dont like worms or telemarketers! I absolutly adore my 2 crazy rugrats who keep me young and my wonderful husband Michael.  I have been in the industry for 13 years  spending 5 of those as a professional photographic printer. I am an easygoing person who gets on well with pretty much everybody.  My style is a mixture of documentary and portrait and I can  blend into the background when required or jump in and organise family groups with equal ease.

I look forward to telling your story your way!
