ReallyBigSmile | About

Phil and Michelle are based in Brighton. We both have a passion for photography and a desire to create for you a documentary record of your precious, and often, once in a lifetime moment. 


Our background is in graphic design and 3 dimensional design and have had a love of cameras,  photography and learning for as long as we both can remember!  


Working together, we have different styles, but they compliment each other to deliver to you a unique rounded package that captures your event or occasion. 


Phil enjoys street photography and shooting from the hip!  It results in capturing people unaware when they are most at ease and relaxed and look very natural. 


Michelle loves capturing all the little details, from shoes & flowers to tuning knobs on a guitar! All those little elements that build up the bigger picture. Seeing groups and people as if part of a stage set and directing them a little to show them off to their best, yet preserving the integrity of the scene, because sometimes, some direction is needed if only to gather people together and get the shots that you'll love.


Overall our style of photography is flexible, tailored to your requirements. And on all occasions, we endeavour to make you as relaxed as possible with minimum intervention and intrusion. 


We are available to cover Weddings, Civil Ceremonies, Portraiture, Boudoir, Events, Bands, Precious Pets, Newborns and Toddlers with their families. We aim to capture the moment and preserve memories for you to cherish. 


If none of our packages meet your requirements then we are happy to work with you to create a bespoke solution. Our fees include travel all over East & West Sussex.  We add additional travel costs when we have gone further afield into Hampshire, Kent and Surrey.
