Authentic Iconic Enduring


Every photograph is always another story. It sets aside a static moment from our lives with the hopes of representing a day, a year or even a lifetime. Whether or not I capture these moments, is all that matters to me as the times of your life pass by before my lens. I am Michael Petersen, a nationally recognised multi-award winning professional photographer.


Since 2006 I have been in commercial photography, with my interest drawn into weddings. That’s a nostalgic decade of wedding photography to my portfolio. As a destination wedding photographer, I always strive to come up with creative ideas and compositions that genuinely reflect your personality and bring out the best in your album.


My love for photography was kindled the first day I peeked into this world through a camera lens. Easy to say, but it was love at first sight. That one ‘moment’ extended into the rest of my life.


I firmly believe in the importance of creating excellent wedding photographs. I love a delightful love story. I can keenly listen and internalize your deepest desires to give you the best photos of your event. You will be spoilt for choice. I am attentive to incorporate your customisation such as themes and effects. From the reminisces of a traditional country theme, to the grandeur of a classical theme, my work will be aligned to your preferences. My focus is on your feelings and satisfaction. I will be with you through your moments, safely keeping each one for your future memories.


I am willing to go the extra mile just to make your Big Day documented in the form of a timeless story that you'd like to narrate to everyone time and again. You can trust me to capture your amorous moments to the last nuance of amusement.


The Wedding is a memorable moment of togetherness where love fills the air and vows taken amidst the warmth of your close ones surrounding you. Above all, you get to say ‘I do.’ While you entrust this big responsibility to me, I make sure to work my magic in an unobtrusive way, so that your wedding's harmony is the least disturbed and your guests feel at home.


If you are looking for a Cairns photographer who can capture the real essence of your wedding in a professional manner, I would love to hear from you. Let’s keep all your emotional, romantic or funny moments in a safe.


The legacy of your marriage in its photography, is something I value personally and professionally.


Every wedding starts with a personal invitation.
