Hi, I am Michael Petersen a nationally recognised multi award winning professional photographer.


I would like to seize this opportunity to walk you through my experience and skills as a professional wedding photographer.


I have a background in commercial photography, and I have been photographing weddings since 2006  


I’m passionate about photography, and it took me just one 'moment' to realise this. The 'moment' when I first peeked into this world through a camera lens. 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.


I firmly believe in the importance of creating excellent wedding photographs. I love a delightful love story.


I can sit down with you to discuss your requirements or anything special that you would want to incorporate in your pictures – maybe a classic theme or particular effects to make your wedding album stand out.  


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.


The Wedding is a moment of togetherness, where love is in the air, vows taken, your close ones surrounded by love and joy, and above all, you are on cloud nine. Needless to say, your wedding day captured in its entirety, without missing out on even a thing. 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 comfortable being there.


If you are looking for a Cairns photographer who can capture the real essence of your wedding moments, in a professional manner, may they be emotional, romantic or funny, I would love to hear from you.


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


Every wedding starts with a personal invitation.

Call me now on  0447 496 183  to discuss your wedding and I will save your date! 

Limited spots available.


Most of my weddings are in Cairns, Palm Cove, Port Douglas and the Atherton Tablelands but I do travel Australia wide and to overseas weddings.
