Wedding Reviews

We couldn't thank you enough for our wedding photos, they are amazing and a perfect reminder of our day. We are not ones for being in front of the camera but from the very start you were both very friendly and made us feel comfortable which decided it for us that we wanted you to capture the memories of our day.

 

Everything from the first appointment, engagent shoot, pre wedding venue visit and the big day to the album photo choosing and prints choosing was easy, smooth and professional. Well, maybe not the album photo choosing because there were so many to choose from!!

 

We will be back one day for another life event I'm sure and I look forward to it.

 

Thank you again, with love Sam and Rich Green.

Me and my husband were quite nervous in the fact that we would have to stand and pose for pictures, but Julie and Mikael made us feel so relaxed. We had a pre photoshoot for our engagement and we felt such at ease that it made us feel much more confident for our big day.

We had great communication with Julie and Mikael from emails to phone calls and face to face meetings. We were given great advice/examples about how the itinerary of the day might run... which we gladly accepted and appreciated.

We wanted our pictures to be natural, fun and capture mine and Neil’s personality and love for eachother, aswell as capturing the guests enjoying the day. They fulfilled every request and more and made everyone feel comfortable. Mikael lamber photography has a beautiful eye for capturing the most amazing pictures. We had them capturing away from the morning until the first dance and it was the best decision we ever made. The photographs and our album were absolutely stunning, especially the sunset ones.... 

I Would definitely recommend Mikael Lamber photography!!!    Lovely people and very professional 

 

----------------------------

Joanne and myself could not recommend Mikael and Julie highly enough. We were fortunate enough to meet them at a wedding fayre at our wedding venue and from that minute on we were left in no doubt they were the perfect couple to photograph our wedding. If, like us, you enjoy doing business with nice people then look no further. Thank you both for everything you did for us. The only issue you have caused us is there are just too many fabulous photos we cannot pick which ones we want for our album!! Xx 
 

-----------------------

I would just like to thank Mikael and Julie for making our wedding day so special .

 

We were married at Whitley Hall on 13th September 2018 and Mikael and Julie from start to finish captured our day to perfection. 

 

You made everyone feel so relaxed and at ease which shows in our amazing photos of our day .

 

From the very 1st meeting to plan our wedding to the last photograph, nothing was too much trouble .

 

Thankyou so much

Mikael & Julie are both amazing & very professional.

We loved our pre wedding shoot, we felt at ease with no pressure. They made my husband & I feel very comfortable on our special day, nothing was too much trouble for them.

 

We couldn't imagine sharing our wedding day with any other photographers. We appreciate how much effort you both put in to make our wedding day special.

Thank you so much

Ruth & Ryan. X

--------------------------------------------

From our very first consultation with Mikael and Julie we knew we'd met the right people to photograph our special day. We arranged our whole wedding in less than 5 months - which you can appreciate comes with its added stresses and worries - however from our very first meeting with them we knew we were going to be in very safe and capable hands as their organisation, communication and dedication were second to none. 
 

Our pre wedding shoot was fantastic for helping put us at ease in front of a camera, as well as providing some absolutely stunning shots and helping us look forward even more to our big day. The attention to detail and organisation from both Julie and Mikael on our wedding day itself really helped the whole day run smoothly, and our families and friends raved about their professionalism and friendliness for days afterwards. 
 

We really couldn't recommend them any higher. If you are wanting a quality photography team of the highest calibre then look no further, the Lambers proved themselves worth every penny in making our day as special as can be. We cannot thank them enough!! 
 

Many thanks, Mr and Mrs Ridsdale xx

------------------------------------------------

We met Julie and Mikael at a wedding fair and instantly loved their photography. 

 

Once we booked them for our wedding day, the service was brilliant, Julie would be in touch regularly and would always respond to our questions very quickly. 

 

We had a pre wedding shoot/meeting with both Julie and Mikael, the photos Mikael captured were amazing and the meeting was helpful to understand what we wanted and make sure all the photos we wanted were captured on the day. 

 

On our wedding day, Julie and Mikael were perfect, so accommodating and professional and captured our special day better than we could ever have imagined. 

 

Thank you so much for ensuring our special day was captured and for giving us pictures we can cherish forever.

I cannot recommend Mikael & Julie enough. We were lucky enough to have them photograph our wedding at the weekend. From the very first day we met then to the time we said goodbye they have been truly amazing.

 

Very friendly and extremely accommodating. Oh, and they take truly amazing photographs too.

 

Thank you so much for all you did for us.

 

Joanne & Mike

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Both Mikael & julie remained very professional throughout the whole of our wedding experience.

 

From the  planning stage, pre photo shoot and on the actual day. They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, and were always accommodating.

 

I would reccomend to anyone wishing for a photographer for any special occasion.

 

The photo album speaks for itself.

 

Thankyou

 I would like to take this opportunity to Thank you for everything you have done during our wedding day on the 13th May 2018.

Everything you did exceeded our expectations. 

 

The weather was on our side and being 26 weeks pregnant in the heat, Julie made sure I was kept in the shade where needed as well as being topped up with plenty of fluids.

 

Nothing was to much to ask. Dave hates his photo being taken and both Mikael and Julie made him feel at ease taking more random shots rather than posed.

 

I would highly recommend Julie and Mikael and will defiantly use them in the near future for our family photo shoots.

 

Thanks once again for capturing the best day of our lives!

Brilliant service and fabulous photographs of our special day.

 

From the time of first meeting to discuss our upcoming wedding to receiving our photos,Mikael  and Julie provided us with a friendly professional service.

 

We were both very camera shy and dreading having to be photographed on the day but Mikael and Julie met us for a pre wedding photo shoot and put us totally at ease in front of the camera.

In fact these turned out to be fabulous pictures that showed us in a relaxed way , helping to calm our nervousness about the forthcoming wedding photo shoot.

 

On the day ever detail and emotion was captured perfectly,

The shoot was organised to perfection, everyone organised and in the pictures as and when necessary.

 

Guests were impressed seeing a preview of the photos , posted online with a link for our guests only.

 

The final selection was made available to us very quickly and a copy provided on a beautiful memory stick in the shape of a silver heart , nice touch.

 

We would highly recommend Mikael Lamber photography and would be happy to use them again for future family events.

Very professional lovely staff recommend to anybody

 

I really dithered over entering the treasure the dress competition,

 

I'm one of those people who doesn't really like having their photograph taken but I really wanted some 'wedding' pictures (we didn't get many at our wedding as we eloped to NYC and had a wardrobe malfunction with my dress) So I sent my entry and was lucky enough to be picked to go for a shoot with Mikael.

 

Mikael and Julie met us in York and just 'got' what we were about, we don't do posed as we feel a bit silly so Mikael suggested that just acting normally and he shot around us and the results were fabulous, we were relaxed and didn't feel awkward in any way.

 

If I'm being honest I'd have to say that Mikael took the best photograph I've ever had of myself (I bought a big print I liked it that much - unheard of before) and even my grumpy husband liked them!


I'd recommend Mikael (and Julie) to anyone looking for pictures that show your personality and actually look like you, not a posed cardboard cut out.

 

I'm so pleased that I saw and entered that competition as we got to meet two lovely people (that's you Mikael and Julie!) and now have some 'wedding' photographs to be very proud of.


Thank you so much for everything

I was lucky enough to win a 'Treasure the Dress' competition that included the photo-shoot, 10x8 printed photo and entry into the next stage of the competition.

 

Mikael & Julie were professional from the start.  Prompt, courteous and very friendly, they put myself and my new husband at ease in front of the camera immediately and made the day full of fun and laughter.

 

I can not recommend them highly enough.

 

You guys are amazing!Kind regards

  • "Amazing, professional went above & beyond!"
     

  •  Pepi on 26 May
     

  • Mikael and his wife Julie are an amazing team. Mikael was willing to go above and beyond, to accommodate us with what he traditionally offered as we wanted some pretty unusual photos (ie. underwater wedding photos).

    We skyped a few times to ensure everyone was on the same page beforehand. We then met Mikael & Julie a few days beforehand to go over all the details and everything was perfect and just as we had envisioned.

    Mikael arrived early on the wedding day, and I've seen others write this in their review, so it must be his standard timing on the day ... sneaky, so be prepared :-). We have such a variety of beautiful shots it's hard to pick our favourite, this is how good Mikael is.

    From broad daylight shots, macro shots, group shots, vistas, sunset scenery, artistic, underwater, Mikael did it all with a smile on his face and jokes along the way. Julie and Mikael made us and all our guests feel very relaxed for the 8 hours we had him, and I would highly recommend him.

    I can't wait to see what he does next in the UK

  • "THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!"

  •  

  •  Amanda on 15 May
     

    When my fiancé and I decided to have a destination wedding in St. Lucia my number one concern was having not a great photographer but a SPECTACULAR photographer.

    I had a wedding photographer in the U.S. whom I wanted more than anything to hire but after travel expenses etc it was going to cost $10,000 to have her travel with us and be our photographer.

    I did not and could not come up with 10k for photography, I was completely bummed. After my pity party I decided to do some major research and I found Mikael Lamber photography!

    I knew I hit the jackpot, his work was phenomenal along with all his reviews. I was completely stoked and to make things even better my parents decided to pay for the photography as our wedding gift! It was the best gift we could have received...Mikael and Julie went above and beyond the entire time making sure my wedding day was absolutely perfect and captured in just the right way. I am so in love with our wedding photos it's going to be so hard to choose which ones to hang up in our first home. Thank you Mikael and Julie.

    You make an amazing team and your passion shows in all your work!

    St. Lucia Wedding, on February 14th

    • "My Wedding Dream Came True !!!!"
       

    •  Toni on 11 May

    • Mikael & Julie Lamber are the ULTIMATE professionals. I've always dreamt of a destination beach wedding. We searched for independent photographers as we were determined to hire the best.

      Well...we found him!!! From the moment we reached out, Julie quickly responded, supplied all necessary information required, ensured proper paperwork was obtained & solidified my wedding appointment in record time.
      Unfortunately, we couldn't get Skype to work to meet prior but she continued to correspond with my husband & I right until we met with Mikael at the resort.
      Even though we were a day late in meeting with him, Julie allowed us time to get settled & enjoy the ambiance of the resort by pushing our appointment a day.

      Mikael was extremely kind & considerate. He allowed us to give him our vision & offered great suggestions during our meeting. Wedding day, ...

      I was such a nervous wreck! He was so welcoming & calm, ensuring everything would be fine & to just "RELAX & ENJOY THE MOMENT"!!!! Mikael sent a few unedited photos, which were ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!! We were confident the final photos would be "BREATHTAKING" and we couldn't be more accurate!!!!!!!!

      Mikael captured the true spirit & emotion between my husband & I as well as the love & joy shared with our family. The photos were just as sweet & intimate as the resort (Sandals Grand Halcyon).

      Mikael even has a wonderful working relationship with the staff there which made us even more confident we made the right decision.

      He comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! He & Julie are a great team & she'll ensure every moment is set up perfectly for Mikael to grab on film.

      Their service is just as good as the photos. I just hope they're available when we return for our anniversary next year !!!

    • We got married in February and Mikael and Julie are the ultimate professionals. Our pictures are stunning and we now have memories of our special day for a lifetime.
      We are very pleased with the variety of photos taken.

      Mikael you captured the essence of who we are for our dream wedding. Julie kept us informed each step of the way and was always quick to respond to any questions raised. Thank you very much to both of you. Alexander and Leslie.

    • "Amazing Photos and Fantastic Photographer!"
       

    •  Marta on 25 April
       

    • We were very lucky, as Mikael and Julia were recommended to us by our villa manager in St. Lucia.

    •  

    • From the beginning they were very responsive and took time to understand us a couple and our wedding style. We exchanged a few emails, talked over Skype and finally met in St. Lucia.

      Mikael is a very experienced photographer with lots of great ideas and make you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. He took many great shots of us before the ceremony and then he did a fantastic job documenting our wedding. He was very professional and easygoing and everything went just so smooth.

      We have now tons of beautiful photos just as we wanted.

      I recommend services of Mikael to everyone. You will not regret it!

    • "Look no where else!"
       

    •  Rachel on 21 April
       

    • Mikael took our wedding photos in St Lucia in November
      What can we say, they were amazing.
      Every person that looks at our photos states they are stunning. There is plenty of variation with the traditional photographs, action shots and artistic shots.

      Mikael and his wife Julie will make you feel so relaxed the pictures look perfect.
      Mikael and Julie are wonderful friendly people, who will listen to the style of photographs you are looking for and also suggest shots you would never have thought of and they look great.

      Kind, caring and friendly people with absolutely stunning photographs you won't get any where else. What more could you ask for on your special day?!

    •  Jessica on 18 April
       

    • Mikael did a fantastic job with our wedding.
      The pictures were beautiful.
      They were varied as well, all the traditional family, ceremony and reception pictures but then some amazing artsy pictures with the sunset, reflections and different angles.
      My family and I are beyond happy with the memories Mikael captured for us.

      Highly recommended!

    • "Beautiful photos from a true professional!"

    • This testimonial was entered by Mikael Lamber Photography on 17 April
       

    • Beautiful photos from a true professional! Description:

      I absolutely recommend Mikael and Julie Lamber, without reservation. They were wonderful to work with: very professional, friendly, helpful and fun! And the photos turned out better than we could ever have imagined.

      Working with someone from a distance can be nerve-wracking, but they made it easy. Julie was in constant contact with updates and confirmations and we spoke with Mikael by Skype before our trip so we felt comfortable with him by the time we arrived. Mikael is extremely professional and knows what he's doing. He arrived early (a special treat, as he was able to capture more of the "getting ready" portion).

      Throughout the session, he suggested and took beautiful shots, and captured our wedding perfectly. We were in St. Lucia to elope, so we only booked Mikael for 2 hours, and we were so impressed with the suite of breathtaking shots he was able to capture in such a short time, with only the two of us as subjects, and very uncooperative weather (rain and clouds). And he processed the photos extremely quickly, turning around sample images in just a day, and all of the photos in a week!

      Because we eloped and did not have friends and family with us for our special day, it was extremely important to us that we had excellent photos to share with them. And Mikael exceeded our expectations.

      Thank you Mikael and Julie. We hope we can come back to St. Lucia someday to celebrate an anniversary, and take more photos with you!

      • Ryan and I were married in St Lucia.
         

      • We had a very small wedding, but it was amazing! We wanted to make sure that our special day
        was captured on film so that we could show all of our extended family and friends when we returned to Chicago.


      • Mikael did a truly fantastic job as our photographer.

        He seemed to know how to capture every moment that we wanted on film...
        without us even having to ask him.

         

      • He used all of the the natural beauty that surrounded us and brought it into our photographs. We recently had a party in Chicago to celebrate with everyone who couldn't be in St. Lucia for the big day.
         

      • We received so many compliments about our photos.

        Everyone was in awe about how gorgeous our album turned out.
        Ryan and I feel so blessed we have such amazing pictures of the happiest day of our lives.

      • We will cherish them forever.

        Thank you Mikael...from the bottom of our hearts.

         

      • Sincerely,

      • Mikael,

      • Aaron and I enjoyed every minute of our experience with you.

        We are extremely pleased with the pictures that you posted, and how quickly you were able to sort and print them.
        Each picture was gorgeous and artistic.

         

      • We will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for an absolutely ideal photographer.
         

      • Thank you for all your hard work and attention to detail, it really meant a lot to both Aaron and I, along with our family and friends who were able to attend and those who have been able to enjoy the ceremony through your slideshow.

      • Mikael and Julie Lamber are consummate professionals.

      • You can trust that your special event is in dependable, experienced hands.

        They bend over backwards to help you achieve the ambience and specific details you desire.
        If you have questions or are looking for recommendations, they are prompt to follow up with you.

         

      • On the day of the special event, you’re able to focus on what’s important to you because Mikael is busy in the background capturing the big and little things that collectively record the content and spirit of your event.

        In less than 48 hours after your event, Mikael posts a slideshow online (to music) with a sampling of your unedited photos. And within a month, Mikael mails your CD(s) of edited photos.

        He also posts those edited photos online for your convenience, should anyone want to order prints.

      • When you receive the CD(s) and look at the quality of the photos, you’re blown away.
        Not only does Mikael do a beautiful job with the backgrounds, compositions, and placements; he also gives you high-resolution files you can use for oversize prints or canvases.

        I recently tested a file for a 20” by 24” enlargement. The clarity and detail were amazing. No degradation in photo quality whatsoever. I was concerned about pixilation if I wanted to enlarge digital photos; however, the quality of Mikael’s work has put me completely at ease.

      • Whenever my husband and I can take advantage of Mikael’s services again, we will.
         

      • Mikael and Julie are classy, personable, and exceptionally hard working. Their work ethic, caring, and attention to detail are reflected in the product you receive—one you are likely to cherish for a long time to come.

      • Wedding Photographer- St Lucia
         

      • When my wife and I did a vow renewal ceremony in April on St Lucia we chose Mikael Lamber as our photographer.
        We were extremely pleased with the service provided by Mikael and his wife Julie throughout the entire event.

        Mikael was very responsive to our wishes and his experience and creativity resulted in the photos being absolutely beautiful. The professionalism of both Mikael and Julie was quickly evident and made it a pleasure to have them as part of our very special day.

        I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting high quality photographic memories of their special occasion.

      • Hi Mikael and Julie,

      • I can't even begin to describe how happy John and I are with our photography.

        We were so excited to have Mikael do our photography based on the pictures we had seen on the blog and I have to say when we saw ours they exceeded our expectations (which were high to begin with!)

         

      • We had the most enjoyable time shooting with Mikael, it is one of our favorite memories from St. Lucia.
        The laptop we brought couldn't support the flash player so we got to see the photos while in St. Lucia but not the video. When we returned home late last night it was the first thing we looked at because our families had been raving about it...what a phenomenal job you did on the video! It brings us right back to that day!

         

      • We are truly so grateful to have had our wedding memories captured by you, I cannot wait to write reviews on the trip advisor website. I would recommend your photography hands down to any other wedding photography I have seen. We appreciate your patience with us while we were getting comfortable behind the camera as well as your knowledge on the places we visited and your enjoyable company during the day.
         

      • We are so excited to see the rest of the photos and cannot thank you enough for the priceless photos and memories you captured.

      • Sincerely,
         

      • My husband and I recently returned from our destination wedding in St. Lucia and we couldn’t be happier.
        We spent a good deal of time researching and planning all aspects of the trip and thankfully found the plethora of rave reviews for Mikael Lamber’s photography.

        After looking at his beautiful work online, we knew without a doubt that we wanted to use him to capture our wedding pictures.


      • An initial email sent to Mikael’s wife Julie was immediately answered and we learned that he was already booked for our wedding time.
        Because of this, we decided to completely change the schedule of our wedding to the morning to ensure that we would be able to work with Mikael and we are so happy that we did.

         

      • Generally, we found that it was a bit challenging to communicate with other vendors in St. Lucia and response times were often delayed.
        This was absolutely not the case with Julie.

        She was extremely responsive and quickly answered each question and email I sent. I can’t tell you how reassuring this was.
        We were 100% confident from the beginning that we made the right decision with Mikael and Julie.

        In additional to their professionalism, they both have an intimate knowledge of the island and truly make an amazing team!

      • Since we had a very small wedding, we relied on the pictures to capture the vivid experience for our family and friends in the States.
        From the moment that Mikael arrived at our resort, he made us feel at ease.

        My husband and I are not used to being in front of the camera and Mikael had wonderful suggestions for shots and poses that were both comfortable and natural.

      • He has a calming personality and a creative eye. The morning of our wedding it was pouring outside and Mikael was flexible and accommodating to potential changes in our ceremony location.

        Thankfully, 15 minutes before, the weather cleared and we were able to proceed with the beach ceremony.
        He was able to get a variety of amazing shots without being invasive during the experience. In fact, we barely knew he was there!

      • Both Mikael and Julie went above and beyond with every request.


      • We had a tight timeline to get our pictures back because we were having a wedding reception at home and wanted to show all our photographs on a slideshow for our guests.


      • They made this happen and ensured that we had the pictures in time. Our reception guests all commented on the stunning images.
         

      • We are thrilled with our beautiful photographs and look forward to enjoying them for many years to come.

      •  

      • We would absolutely recommend Mikael for wedding photography or for that matter, any kind of photography, and would certainly use him again should we return to the island for a future anniversary.

      •  

      • Thanks, Mikael and Julie!

      •  

      • With appreciation,

      •  

      • Leah and Brandon

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        I wanted to drop you a quite note to say thanks to both you and Mikael for your hard work and making everything run very smoothly.

         

      • Mikael was an absolute pleasure to meet and the photos on his blog are beautiful.


      • It brings tears to my mom's eyes every time she watches the video of the photos - she says that Mikael captures such emotion in the pictures.

      •  

      • As for me, I'm not the teary eyed type, but the photos certainly make me smile...I can't tell you how many times I've watched the video!

      • I wish both of you all the best and much success.

      •  

      • Lisa

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Mikael and Julie are true artists.


      • They were able to capture the intimacy in each moment of our special day and expertly frame us in the beautiful landscape of the Pitons.


      • Every picture gave justice to the beauty of our surroundings at Jalousie Plantation, and, amazingly, made it more vivid and vibrant than we remembered.
        They are creative and professional and always willing to go the extra mile to have satisfied customers – even taking additional photos the next day because we lost valuable sunlight when our ceremony was delayed.

         

      • Mikael and Julie personify all that is spectacular and beautiful in St. Lucia.
        Their work is a testament to their abilities to create memories through their attention to detail and artistic touch.
        We too ended up purchasing all of our pictures – we couldn't imagine losing any of them!

      •  

      • Thank you both for giving us nothing less than perfection!

        We had such a great time on our island tour of St. Lucia.
        Mikael was so awesome.

      •  

      • We love our pictures and all of the fabulous locations that we got to see!


      • Thank you so much for capturing the moment in St. Lucia that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
         

      • It doesn't even begin to touch on how thankful we are for everything that you two did for us.
         

      • Thank you,
         

      • Michelle & Ryan

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Having professional photographs taken during our honeymoon was one of the highlights of our trip!
        Mikael was so nice and easy to work with.


      • He made us feel very comfortable during our session and helped capture some great moments in beautiful spots we would never have otherwise seen on the island.


      • Our parents loved that he posted some photos on his blog right away - it made them feel like they were a part of our trip (and helped us save the cost of an international long distance phone call!).


      • We highly recommend Mikael for photos in St. Lucia!


      • Jaeann & Blair Ashton

        We just received our picture from Mikael and we were blown away.

      •  

      • He has an amazing eye and caught every moment, laughter, and tears in our eyes and our guests.

      • The view of beautiful St Lucia was captured in all our shots.


      • We have so much picture to pick from and cant decide. They are all so beautiful that we are just going to get them all.

      • We didn't even see him take all those pictures which was great because he caught all the real moment.

      • He took us to the beach for sunset photo which were again breathtaking.

      •  

      • We cannot wait to share these picture with our friends and family.

      •  

      • Thank You Mikael!!!!

        To Brian and I the photographs where one of the most important parts of our wedding.

      •  

      • Once we had booked our wedding I had been looking at different photographers in St.lucia and checking out their websites.

      • Mikael’s was by far the most impressive.

      •  

      • He seems to have a real passion for his work and there are no two weddings on his blog look the same, he has great ideas and excellent attention to detail.

      •  

      • We have hundreds of wonderful photos of our big day to look back on and each one tells a different story
        We bumped into Mikael going to photograph another wedding while we where on honeymoon and it was great to see him work when you are not in front if the camera.

      •  

      • He is a lovely man and we both felt completely at ease and relaxed throughout our whole day.

      •  

      • I think we will be admiring his work online for many years to come.

      •  

      • ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Wedding photographs are often dreaded.


      • An imposing or inappropriate photographer takes a million photos and has you in all sorts of uncomfortable positions.
         

      • Not in this case.

      • As natural as possible, the backdrop and surroundings were perfect and Mikael was professional, structured and yet very smooth in his direction of how to get the best shot.

      •  

      • Over in a flash, sorry, we were back at the wedding in no time, safe in the knowledge that we had some great memories captured forever without missing hours of the celebrations with our guests.

      •  

      • Quick to show us samples and following up with an excellent selection of snaps to choose from...again, I would highly recommend this service alongside ACW.

      •  

      • Regards,
         

      • Sarah and Aytan Hilton

      • -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        As a couple where one person is very comfortable in front of the camera and the other would much rather be taking pictures behind the camera,
        it was very important to us that we have a photographer who made both of us feel comfortable.

      • Mikael did just that. He captured the essence of our wedding, which was a relaxed, simple ceremony and our personalities in his pictures.

      •  

      • He was extremely accommodating to our requests and very relaxed towards our friends and families who were snapping photos throughout the ceremony and pictures afterwards.

      •  

      • This was wonderful to see, as we have been to many many weddings where the photographers would monopolize the couple after the ceremony and would not allow guests to take pictures.

      •  

      • We are very pleased with how our pictures reflect our personalities - some are romantic and tender, some are silly and fun, but they are all fabulous.

      •  

      • We are very happy with our pictures and our choice to have Mikael photograph us on our wedding day.

      •

      • ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        We must not forget to say that our wedding experience in St. Lucia was completed by the fabulous photographer Mikael Lamber,

      • who was with us during the ceremony and later that day.


      • The pictures he took of us during the ceremony in the forest and afterwards when we went to a beach in Gros Islet, are simply great.

      • And notably it was no hard work (for us) at all to shoot all these pictures. Never before or after, has it been so easy to get such gorgeous pictures of us!

      •  

      • They are also perfect for sharing some of the impressions with our friends and relatives, and to us they are bringing back all the lovely memories.

      •  

      • Therefore we also want to say a big Thank you to Mikael for the photographs and the great time we had during the shootings.

      •  

      • We hope you all have a happy and successful new year!
         

      • Best wishes,

      • Cathy and John

      •  

      • Mikael-
        Thank you for doing such an amazing job with my sister's wedding.


      • I love the video you have posted and cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures.
        You truly captured the spirit of the day.

      •  

      • Thank you!!
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      • Mikael and Julie,


      • I have been dumbfounded by some of the moments you were able to capture.

      • Coming from Alaska, you can imagine how out of our "weather element" we were, but we were astonished by your enthusiasm and energy, especially in this heat, in making sure any possible photo Jenn and Howie could possibly want, you captured.

      •  

      • I know that having you "onboard" as their photographer early on in the planning helped relieve a great deal of stress for Jenn.

      •  

      • She is a photo NUT! If something happens, I guarantee she has it on film, so to speak.
        She will treasure these pictures the rest of her life, as will her father and I.

      •  

      • Thank you so much for all your extra efforts, they are quite apparent!
        You guys are amazing!

      •  

      • Thanks ever so much!

      •  

      • Steff Clymer,


      • Mother of the Bride
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

      • Mikael & Julie,
        Words aren't enough to express how thankful and grateful Howie & I are to have found you.

      •  

      • Not only did you capture our day so perfectly that I have cried everytime

      •  

      • I have watched the slideshow, but you made the entire day possible by pointing us in the right direction for planning and constant guidance and reassurance throughout the months before.

      •  

      • I don't know what we would have done without the two of you.

      •  

      • We will treasure the memories you have beautifully captured for us forever and you will always hold a special place in our hearts for everything you both have done for us.

      •  

      • Thank you for everything!

      •  

      • Love Jenn

      • -----------------------------------------------------------------

      • Nir and I want to thank you for capturing our most memorable day in our new life together!

      •  

      • We are so happy to have had a photographer who was adaptable to and appreciative of our moments.
        Some of the most candid photos have left us awed and amazed – I can’t even begin to describe the feelings…

      • the photos just speak for themselves and take us back into time.


      • Extraordinary days like this, our wedding day, goes by so fast that it seems surreal.

      • We’re so thankful to have these photos to reminisce upon! A few things that we liked most about having you were that you were easy-going, patient and non-intrusive.


      • I was particularly more nervous since we hadn’t met at all prior to our big day,
        and not having worked with a professional photographer before, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

      • Then there you were at my door with Trevor with a cool ambience.

      •  

      • You made us feel comfortable to naturally continue to go about (our preparation), and stepped in with direction when it was needed.

      • It was very hard for us to choose 160 pictures that we wanted to keep, and so we decided to buy the rights to the entire album!

      • The story that unfolds is one that couldn’t be done any better nor could it be forgotten,
        and we want to share it with our families, friends and soon-to-have children 

      •  

      • Thank you again for doing such a wonderful job! Take care.

      •  

      • Missing beautiful Saint Lucia,

      •  

      • Anna & Nir

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Dear Julie & Mikael Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives.

         

      • The photo’s are fantastic, the tears came flowing again when we saw pictures that we didn’t even know had been taken.

      •  

      • We have never seen anyone take pictures which capture every emotion.

      • It took us straight back to the day.

      •  

      • We have so many amazing pictures it is going to be so difficult to choose for our album.

      • Thanks for posting such a beautiful slide show for all our friends and family to see –
        that was such an extra special touch which made everyone feel part of the wedding that couldn’t make it.

      •  

      • We will cherish our photo’s forever.

      •  

      • Much love to you both – Vic & Jon xxx

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Mikael, Chris and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you again for our gorgeous wedding photographs.
        The video you made for us enabled our friends and family members back home to feel like they were a part of our unforgettable day.

         

      • At the reception that we held when we returned home, one of our friends told us that our pictures were absolutely breathtaking, another commented that they looked like they came out of a magazine, and yet another said that she literally got chills when she viewed our video.

      •  

      • During the months and weeks leading up to our  wedding ceremony, I became an avid follower of Mikael’s blog.
        I read the testimonials, viewed the beautiful locations, and anxiously awaited our turn to take our place as the bride and groom within Mikael’s frame.


      • I found Mikael’s portfolio and blog to be an invaluable resource in helping us select our locations. We spent hours exploring the location options via Mikael’s portfolio.

      •  

      • We were struck by the sheer artistic beauty of his photographs as well as his photo-journalistic approach to wedding photography.

      • When our day finally arrived, Mikael picked us up after our ceremony at the Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort.
         

      • He transported us to Rodney Bay Beach where we had photographs taken on the pier, at the Seaside Bar, and on the rocks overlooking the sea.


      • We concluded our session with our toes in the sand, walking down the palm-lined shore and listening to the crashing waves at Choc Bay Beach, just as I had envisioned.

      •  

      • We truly appreciated how Mikael not only gave us the space to interact with each other and be ourselves on our wedding day, but also the way in which he translated who we are as a couple onto film.

      •  


      • In looking through our collection of photographs there are moments that, at the time, we didn’t even realize Mikael was capturing.
        Needless to say, we couldn’t have been more pleased with our wedding photographs or with our undeniably talented photographer, Mikael.

      •  

      • Now that we are back home, and settling back into the routine of everyday life, we love being able to look at our photographs and relive the feelings and excitement we felt on July 31, 2010 when we had our day as the bride and groom.

      •  

      • I, for one, can’t wait to have another opportunity to take our place within Mikael’s frame.

      •  

      • Who knows . . . an anniversary maybe?

      •  

      • April & Chris Ricketts

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        We are so pleased with the photos. You made us feel so very relaxed and at ease.

      •  

      • We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the photos reflect this.

      •  

      • We loved your style, especially the way we interacted with each other and how we were perceived, so natural and in love.

      • The photos are very professional. You let us enjoy the moment of being a newlywed couple and not posing for every photo.

      •  

      • You were so professional that we forgot you were there, you were not intrusive or demanding. You just let us have a great time and the photos capture this.

      •  

      • Everyone who has viewed the photos have all agreed they are breathtaking, creative and artistic.

      • We are really pleased that we chose you for our wedding day and thank you once again for helping to make our special day a memorable one!

      •  

      • Thanks Jane & Mark

      • ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      • Dear Mikael:

      • We wanted to send you a gushing letter of approval.We are absolutely thrilled with the photos you took of our wedding at Ladera in St. Lucia.

      • When planning an event at a remote location some decisions can be difficult to make, photographer selection being one of them. Reading other testimonials and simply viewing your vast online photo library of events sealed the deal for us.Having chose you as our photographer was the best decision we made regarding our wedding.

      •  

      • We had concerns about not having any family or friends in attendance at our wedding.Would they feel as if they missed out on the event?

      •  

      • Would it be a dreamy event that we wouldn't be able to truly share with friends and family?

      • By sharing your amazing photos with our loved ones we were able to transport them, as if they were right there with us on our wedding day.

      •  

      • We specifically enjoyed your photographer style.You captured the fluidity of our wedding. Our photos were candid, natural and professional.You let us enjoy the excitement of being a newlywed couple and documented exactly that without all the conformity of posing.

      •  

      • This resulted in photos that captured once in a life time moments.

      • The customer service that you offer is second to none.

      •  

      • With the help of your lovely assistant/wife, Julie, we felt as if we were your only clients during the entire experience.

      • You were both so informative and patient with handling our lengthy lists of questions.The personal and timely attention you provided before, during and most importantly after our wedding made us even happier with our decision.

      •  

      • From uploading a majority of the photos the very next day so we could share with family back home, to creating a customized slideshow with our favorite photos set to our wedding song, to downloading of a few selected images so that we could create our wedding announcements in a timely manner. The list just goes on and on.

      •  

      • Everyone who sees our photos has commented on how breathtaking and artistic they are and we couldn't agree more.

      • Thank you again for documenting the most treasured event of our lives!

      •  

      • Sincerely,

      •  

      • Steve & Paige Sawar

      •  

      •  

 

Mikael Lamber, was able to take a lot of beautiful candid shots.

Mikael was also very laid back and was great about having us move to several different sites to capture a variety of shots.

He even climbed out onto the rocks, and almost fell, to get a few great shots. We had a lot of beautiful photographs to choose from and ended up buying them all.

 

If you are getting married in St. Lucia you need to use ACW and have Mikael as your photographer - you will not regret your decision.

Thank you again for such a wonderful day. It was exactly what we wanted!!

Thank you again

Kristin & Garth

----------------------------------------------------------------------
One of the reasons we chose St. Lucia for our wedding destination was the work of Mikael.

I fell in love with the photos on his site instantly, and contacted Julie immediately after confirming our wedding date and time at the Jalousie Plantation.

The photos of our wedding lived up to all the ones I fell in love with on my computer screen so many months before. The composition of the photos helps capture the beautiful surroundings of St. Lucia, and his journalistic style created natural-looking photos that are organic in nature and not posed as though they were school photographs; looking at many of our pictures, I remember exactly what it was like being there.

Mikael captured our private ceremony from start-to-finish, and of all the compliments I've gotten from friends and family since, the most resounding is that they felt as though they'd actually been there -- all thanks to our pictures. Making our friends and family feel included while they were thousands of miles away is priceless.

Perhaps more importantly, Mikael put us at ease on our wedding day. He allowed us to enjoy our moment and interact with each other naturally. Those couple of hours went by all too quickly, and, thankfully, all of my memories are of my husband and I sharing time by walking down the beach and not of having to pose and force a smile for the camera. It was a pleasure spending the afternoon with

 

Mikael.

Mikael, Leo and I wanted to take a moment to thank you tremendously for our beautiful wedding photos!

When we started researching which Caribbean island to go to for our wedding, I first looked into what photographers each island had to offer since quality photographs was our top priority.

I was completely unimpressed with all the photographers I found until I came across your website. Once we found your site, we knew that we had found our island and our photographer!

Leo and I didn’t invite anyone to our wedding, so having beautiful pictures to share with friends and family was extremely important to us. Everyone who has seen the pictures has raved about the wedding, the scenery, and the high quality photos capturing it all. And even though we don’t typically photograph well together, you somehow managed to make us look fabulous in every shot. We couldn’t be happier.

You and Michele made our whole wedding day relaxing and carefree. We can’t thank you enough for being such a big part of the biggest day of our lives. We hope to return to St. Lucia one day (perhaps to renew our vows!) and if we do, we will certainly contact you for another photo shoot!

Stephanie & Leo

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My husband and I decided that one of the most important things for us at our wedding would be the photographs.

After speaking with a friend of mine, who is a professional photographer for the magazine Caribbean Bride, he recommended Mikael saying that no one else will capture the special moments of your day the way that he can. He was right! Mikael and his wife Julie went above and beyond what was required of them.

 

Having to plan a wedding from afar can be difficult, however, their professionalism made it easy.

 

The photos were amazing and Mikael was able to capture all of our special moments. He was like a fly on the wall, never in the way but capturing every moment of our special day.

 

The candid shots that he was able to take speak volumes.

 

Thank you again Mikael and Julie for capturing our special day in a way that we can cherish for a lifetime.

Cheryl and Devin

"We were married inside Sandals Regency and decided since we were getting married in such a beautiful paradise we really needed some pictures outside of the resort around the island.

This is when we researched on the internet and found Mikael Lamber. His portfolio online was wonderful and we booked with him right away. From the moment Mikael picked us up at our resort we felt very comfortable with him.

Mikael went above and beyond to extend a warm welcome to us. Mikael knew the most wonderful places to take pictures. He made us feel as if he wasn't even there while giving us some guidance as to what would look nice.

The pictures Mikael took came out amazing. All of our friends and family think they are breaktaking.


They were everything and more we dreamed they would be. We can't wait to return to St. Lucia on our anniversary and have Mikael do more pictures for us. He really knows how to capture the moment.

We would recommend Mikael to anyone who wants only the best!

Thank you Mikael!

 

You were absolutely amazing!


Mr. & Mrs. Justin Coffey"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

"We had our wedding ceremony at St. Lucia's Pigeon Island. The weather was beautiful, the setting was perfect, and Mikael's photos of our day are absolutely breathtaking.

They say a picture speaks a thousand words and Mikael's photos do just that. During the ceremony, his presence went unnoticed yet he managed to capture the candid moments and the emotions that made this day so special.

We had seen Mikaels portfolio online and when we started working with a wedding planner we specifically requested that he be our photographer. His photos far exceeded our expectations.

It was a true pleasure working with him and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their special occasion.

 

Our most sincere thanks Mikael."

 

Tammy and Jason

------------------------------------------------------------------------

A huge "Thank You" goes to Mikael Lamber.

Mikael was our photographer, and he was amazing. We only pre-ordered 160 photos, but after seeing the "extras", we decided to get ALL of them!

He is truly a gifted photographer.

 

He met with us the day of the wedding at our resort and took photos of us getting ready there. Then, he met us at the wedding location and captured many great moments.

The photos were breathtaking. It was almost hard to believe that was US in the pictures! I would definitely recommend Mikael.

 

Danna & Thorn

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mikael Lamber is a fantastic wedding photographer. He shot our wedding party getting ready, our ceremony on the beach, then he took us to another beach for beautiful sunset photos.

 

He stayed with us throughout the reception, getting amazing candid shots of our family, friends and the fire dancers we had for entertainment.

He was very unobtrusive and melted into the background, while still able to zero in on the action of the event. My biggest pet peeve with some wedding photographers is that they want you to pose for “candid” moments or recreate something that just happened for the camera.

 

Mikael was definitely respectful of the event itself and didn’t intrude on anyone’s good times. And it goes without saying that he presented himself in a professional, timely, and respectful manner.

And the photos? Amazing.

 

We have so many great shots from him, it’s almost impossible to pick our favorites for an album. He did a great job of framing us against the natural beauty of Saint Lucia. And in close-ups, my wife and I look exceptional.

 

The very next day, he put together a slideshow of the day’s events set to music. This was a complete surprise and a great way to share the wedding with everyone who couldn’t be there.

I would highly recommend Mikael to any couple looking for a wedding photographer in Saint Lucia. Booking such a big event from far away can be a nerve-wracking exercise in trust, but if you book Mikael you can rest easily in your decision.

 

Sarah & Simon

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Mikael, Christian and I just wanted to write and say thank you for taking some amazing photos of our wedding day. Your professionalism and easy going approach on the day made us and our guests feel relaxed and at ease.

 

We were impressed by how you used a variety of backdrops and you sensitively directed and guided us whilst still taking on board our ideas about the type of images that we wanted.

We feel that you remained in the background when taking photos and were very non-intrusive.

 

The photos really did capture the essence of the day and you took some truly intimate and amazing snapshot images of various parts of the day as well as taking some impressive posed group photos and portraits images of us both.

Thankyou for giving as a lasting memory of our day

Kindest regards Mr and Mrs Kimber"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Mikael was the photographer at our wedding at the Villa Capri.

 

He was recommended by the villa and we are so pleased that he was. Mikael met with us a few days before our wedding to understand what we would like and to show us some of his photos.

He arrived as planned on the wedding day and had a fantastic, professional, informal, non-intrusive style. We are not naturally at ease being photographed, but Mikael's approach meant that we were totally relaxed and did not feel at all awkward in front of the camera.

 

As well as the formal photos he took of us and our wedding party he also took some amazing shots that really captured the essence and the emotion of the event that we did not request and do not even remember being taken!

Mikael posted a selection of photos on his website the day after the wedding so that our friends back in the UK could see them and followed up quickly with the full set of photos.

Mikael exceeded all of our hopes and expectations in terms of his level of service and fabulous photos. In particular, the photos that Mikael took on the beach as the sun was setting were truly beautiful. He made sure that he took photos of all of our party and we will treasure them for ever as we remember our very happy day.

Thank you very much Mikael!

 

We are delighted to recommend Mikael to everyone getting married in St Lucia."

Kind Regards

 

Suzanne and Chris

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mikael is an absolutely wonderful photographer to work with. I barely noticed him at all during the ceremony and was surprised later to see how many wonderful shots he had taken, considering he seemed so scarce!

Mikael took an excellent combination of both posed and candid shots, which was exactly what we wanted. Even during the posed shots, he was incredibly efficient and it felt like the photography was over in no time at all. Mikael took absolutely beautiful shots of us in the ruins at Pigeon Point and on the beach.

 

They came out so much better than we could have hoped for.

He was professional and courteous the whole time. He suggested shots but never pushed if there was something we weren’t interested in doing. I have just finished going through all of the photos and have to say that I am impressed with the quality.

 

I knew from looking at Mikael’s previous work that I would not need to worry and he did not disappoint. Anyone thinking about hiring

Mikael for their wedding should not hesitate to do so.

 

He is a wonderfully talented photographer.

 

Thank you for everything, Mikael.

 

Erin and Greg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We would like you to know how unbelievably impressed we are with our photos.

 

Mikael seemed to catch our personalities and body language perfectly, and the scenery and special effects are amazing. We could not be happier, and have watched the slide show over and over!

 

Thank you both for your wonderful customer service and to Mikael, for capturing our honeymoon happiness on film forever.
 

We would recommend Mikael Lamber photography to any and all, and please feel free to use us as a reference via email should any future clients wish to speak with us.
