As a storyteller, I believe in capturing the truth. That’s when the magic happens: when the mood and the subject and the setting mesh together and the narrative unwinds naturally. The stories in those moments are the most precious and worth everything.

Wedding coverage includes:
> All day coverage
You let me know when you want me to arrive and when you want me to leave. I don’t want to miss a moment.
> Online gallery
A slideshow of images that tell the story of your day. You can share your most precious moments with family and friends anywhere in the world, provided they have a computer with internet access.
> High resolution finished images
I will provide your images on a flash drive, in high resolution and in colour and black and white. Typically, a full day yields 500-800 images. I personally edit/enhance every image and deliver them in JPEG format within four weeks of your wedding day.
You can order prints through me or take them to any lab. You are free to make prints as it suits you.
I offer a wedding album as another option. Your album will be individually custom designed by me. Printed on fine art, museum quality paper with vibrant and vivid archival inks rated to last generations without discolouring, yellowing or fading. When you open up your album you see a full panoramic display of your images. Because they have no cuts or gutters in the binding, your images display without any distractions.
I am based in Geelong, Australia and I will travel to any corner of the globe to shoot your wedding. Destination weddings are amongst my favourite assignments.
Email or call direct on +61 (0)439 977 677 to discuss your own special plans. I’d love to have a chat about helping make the magic happen.
Michael Renga is a storyteller. He tells love stories, tall tales, legends and fantasies, not in words, but in beautifully crafted photographs. Capturing the moment is the cliché; capturing the story within the moment is his craft.
Michael’s work is founded in the discipline of design and his creative sensibility is palpable in every composition. He carefully thinks out the relationship between each subject and its surrounding space. Creating simple, imaginative narratives. Capturing artistic images that relate stories with heart and personality.
Born and raised in Geelong, Australia, Michael’s own narrative is never far from the ocean where he feels most connected. Boardies in summer. Wetsuit in winter. Surfing. Lapping up the surf coast lifestyle. Restoring his creative spirit has always been a springboard to wanderlust and world travel: photographic assignments in the United States and Europe, adventures on tropical islands, exploring the world’s great cities.
He believes in karma and gut instinct, extreme sports, slow food and fast cars. And always he carries with him the young boy, fascinated with wildlife, intrigued by nature’s creativity and forever inspired to communicate visually. Things you never outgrow. Year 9’s top marks for storytelling had little to do with Michael’s words and everything to do with his intricate cover page artwork. Because that made sense to him. Then and now.
Later, armed with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic Design) from the University of Ballarat, he honed his design skills in the advertising industry for several years. Much like the pull of the ocean, he was drawn to photography and its potential to use the camera like a brush. Holding the camera felt like the most natural thing in the world. It made sense to him.
From 2008 Michael transitioned easily into the world of photography – weddings, portraiture, fashion and advertising. Everything makes sense when you discover your superpowers and have the courage to use them. That’s when the magic happens.
