I do portrait photography the same why I do documentary photography. This allows me to focus on you and your story, and ensures a unique result with complete fidelity to your life. The value of this approach increases over time for you and your family as you are able to remember with clarity the important moments in time.

I offer 2 to 7 day shoots, full-time.

Included in the fee are digital copies of all the photographs that comprise the resulting "story". For shoots that are 5 days or more in length, you get a printed book (via Blurb).




Thank you for inspiring such a great few days with our family. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will continue to enjoy the beautiful photos you captured. We hope that we can continue to document moments with you in the future.

Over the last three years, Michael Weinhardt has tirelessly documented the growth of our family. We plan events based on his availability to ensure he is there to capture them. His photographs of my family, friends, and my late father are among some of my most treasured possessions.

A big thank you again for the fantastic job you did, taking photos and leading up to our wedding, on the day, and afterwards. You captured exactly what we were after :)

Thanks so much for your amazing photography on our wedding day. We were literally squealing with joy when we saw the final product! I was worried about posing for staged photographs so your documentary style of capturing our day was perfect. We were so impressed that you were so keen to portray the whole story – from the early start at the hairdressers right through to us leaving the reception. We also loved the practice session the week before – not only did we get some gorgeous photos of us in our home but it meant on the day we barely noticed we were having our photograph taken. You were also so flexible on the day and we really appreciate it. On top of this – you are so easy going & friendly and we just loved having you as part of our wedding day. Thanks again for the gorgeous photos – we are still arguing about which ones to hang on the wall.
