Dear Michael, Nat and Frankie

Peter and I want to say a HUGE thank you for our wedding photos. They are so fabulous and exactly what we had hoped for. I seriously nearly cried the first time I saw them I was so happy.

Michael, you have been so fantastic to deal with right from day one. You absolutely rock at your job!

Nat and Frankie, it was such a pleasure having you both at the wedding. We loved how you just knew what would look good and you certainly managed to capture the best version of us :-)

When we got the photos, I spent hours that night looking through all 7000 of them. I still don’t know how I’m going to narrow down to just a few to put around the house!!

Thank you again so much! You are all fabulous and I can’t wait to have an occasion to work with Milque again.

Hi Michael

Before Hayden and I set off on our honeymoon in the Maldives today, I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you to you, Britta, Nat and especially Liz for a great day on Saturday.

As soon as I discovered Milque after we got engaged, I knew I wanted you guys to be the ones to capture our wedding and we have not been disappointed. At the end of the day, all we wanted was to have fun and for this energy to shine through to our photographs and there were so many smiles and laughs on the day with Liz that I think this will definitely happen.

Liz – you are a superstar. So nice, sweet, lovely and patient and made us all feel at ease. You also took on our crazy idea of going to the Eat Street Markets as a location and I can’t wait to see how the photos turned out from that part of the shoot. Our groomsmen like to think of themselves as jokers and larrakins and you handled them very well also haha.

Britta was also a gem and I want to thank her too for being so patient with all of the requests for photos during our reception.

If every wedding provider were as wonderful as your team, there would definitely be less Bridezillas around! :)

We wanted to let you know we had the most magical and perfect day!!! Liz and Fraya were absolutely amazing to work with and everyone felt so comfortable with them. They went above and beyond to capture our day…even if this meant getting pricked by thorns while crawling around in a rose bush!!! Our day didn’t feel rushed at all and having two photographers meant they worked in and amongst each other and both had different ideas! And if it wasn’t for Fraya, the boys would have forgotten their button holes!!!

Please pass on our thanks and big hugs to Liz and Fraya and we wanted to also say a massive thank you to YOU!!! I’m a little sad now that I won’t be sending and receiving emails from you! I’m sure you’re relieved haha You have been amazing from start to finish!!! We can’t wait to see our photos and look forward to our album design when we are back from our honeymoon!!!

Much love xox

Hey Nat, Bronwen, Michael and the rest of the team,

Thank-you so much for all your hard work on Friday for our wedding, plus all the emails and meetings over the past year leading up to our special day.

Nat and Bronwen were fabulous to work with, so professional, and very encouraging when our energy was waning towards the end of the day.

Both Matt and the groomsmen commented how wonderful Bronwen was to work with, and how easy, painless and fun she made their photos in the morning.

Big thank-you to Nat too, who put extra effort into helping achieve my crazy dream of a love heart group photo.

We are SO GLAD we booked Milque to capture our special day, and cannot wait to see our photos when we get back from our honeymoon!

THANK-YOU!!!

Erin and Matt :)

Hi Nat & Michael,

I would like to start off with how happy my husband and I are with our wedding pictures. Not only did Liz capture so many special moments, the touch ups and selection has just blown our minds.

Liz was truly amazing, she was such a pleasure on the day and made me feel calm and special. I loved that she was able to get me to feel natural and comfortable and I even see that in the pictures that she captured from Steven. Steve has also mentioned how relaxed she made him feel and was able to get such great shots of the boys and even our dog Toby.

Michael, you have made us feel so welcome and every time we deal with you there is always a smile on your face, making us feel even more excited about seeing and receiving our pictures.

We would like to say a massive thank you as the day is now over but these images will be treasured forever. I have had them for a week already and look at them every day, putting a smile on my face every time.

Thank you again and we will recommend you to anyone who will need your services in the future.

To the amazing Milque Team!

Nathan and I are sitting back and reflecting on what was an amazing day on Saturday. We both agree that the day would not have been the same without the amazing Nat and Freya and their amazing smiles and encouragement.

Nat and Freya were so attentive and made us both feel amazing and beautiful and handsome. It can also not go unmentioned that they both stood in the rain to capture the moments of the day while keeping so upbeat and positive making the time fun and easy. Freya was amazing throughout the whole reception, she ran around the whole event almost unnoticed while capturing shots with all of the guests which they all came up to us and mentioned as such an amazing experience. We both cannot thank the Milque team enough for everything done.

I don’t think I can put down in words how much we appreciate your presence on our amazing day! We cannot wait to get to the appointment to start seeing the photos.

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you times infinity.

Madeline + Jay

Dear Liz, Michael, Nat & the whole Milque team,

We just wanted to send a quick email to say a big thank you to you all.

Liz – thanks for making the day feel so relaxed & natural. Both Jay & I are not used to getting our photo taken & were worried that we would look & feel awkward but you made us feel so relaxed & we actually ended up enjoying the whole experience!

Michael & Nat – we know that you deal with so many couples in the lead up to their big day & we were so impressed with the level of attention that you obviously give to each. Thank you in particular for the recommendations that you gave us – Maria from Twidale did an awesome job, our florist (Bouquet Boutique) & our wonderful band (Dan & Nat from Speak Easy Entertainment were amazing!!).  It’s these little things that we really appreciated & that made the lead up to the day so much easier. Thanks so much. We will not hesitate to reccommend you in the future!!

All the best,
Madeline & Jay

Kim + Joshua

Dearest Liz, Michael, Nat and everyone else on the Milque team,

Wow!! Where do we even begin to say thank you!!

From the moment we saw your work we knew Milque Photography would be the ones to capture our special day.

Michael and Nat, right from the moment we booked, you were both so supportive. You went over and beyond by even helping us find a new wedding venue when our original booking fell through. I don’t think there are many people out there who can say their wedding photographer cared as much as you guys did for us.

Everyone is still raving about our wedding venue and have even said it was the best wedding they have been to! It was absolutely perfect, so thank you so much for suggesting such a unique and romantic venue- it suited us and our guests to a ‘T’.

Michael, you are such a sweetheart! We can’t thank you enough for your constant patience with all our questions. No matter how many emails we sent you, you were always so friendly and so quick to respond.

And finally to the wonderful Liz… We were so lucky to have you there on our day. Liz fitted in so perfectly with our friends and family, you would have thought we’d all known her for years. Josh and I both aren’t ones to feel too confident in front of a camera but Liz made us feel so relaxed and just encouraged us to be ourselves that we never felt uncomfortable at all. Josh was especially loving all the compliments he was getting haha!!

Thank you again to everyone for making our day so incredibly special. We will without a doubt recommend the Milque team to everyone we know- you truly are a one of a kind team.

Can’t wait to catch up and see some photos when we get back from our honeymoon :-)

Lots of love.
Kim and Josh Woods xxxx

“Dear Jo (and the Twidale team) and Michael (and the Milque team),

I have a confession to make- I have loved Milque and Twidale for a long time. I remember the first time I locked eyes with the Milque stand at a bridal expo and fell in love with everything they represent.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for the images recently created of my mum and I. From the initial enquiry, through to viewing the images at the studio- the whole process was flawless.

Family photos become less common as you get older and as a result, mum and I hadn’t had a professional photo taken in years! The experience was given to mum as a gift for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. The ladies at Twidale did such an amazing job with pampering mum (let’s not forget the lashes!).

To be honest, we were a little nervous at the start of the shoot however these feelings quickly evaporated as Liz made us feel so comfortable. Her guidance for positions and outfits along with her friendly manner, made us feel so at ease. Michaels vibrant personality and professionalism made the coordination and viewing so easy and memorable. When we viewed the photos we were in awe- there was definitely fierce competition when it came to choosing our favourites. It was such a great experience and I strongly recommend this to anyone considering a portrait shoot as a gift.

Milque and the Twidale team do such an amazing job – there’s a reason they are recognised nationally for their amazing work.

Thanks so much,

Jacqueline and Lyn”

Rachel + Dale

“To the Photography A Team,

Now that Dale and I have returned from our much too short jaunt to Bali, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for playing such a huge role in our special day.

From the moment we first came to see you at lightspace, I was sold and very ready to sign on the dotted line for your services. I can clearly remember Dale asking me as we left your offices, before we had even driven away mind you, “Babe, are you sure? We haven’t even spoken to anyone else.” I replied, “Yes, absolutely! They are darling!” It was, without a doubt, the easiest and most natural decision we made with regards our wedding day, and I’m so very glad we did! Perhaps we should have known then, just how easy and fun Milque would make the entire photography process.

Firstly, I love your approach to perceived ‘challenges’.

You don’t live in Brisbane anymore? No dramas, Milque does skype calls.

Skype cuts out because of dodgy internet? No worries, Milque will promptly call you back and go through every minute detail to until my overly active, bridal brain is rest assured.

Not sure about a Lingerie Shoot? Not a problem, Natalie makes you feel as though you’ve been photographed in your lingerie a million times before.

Can’t totally bend down in your dress for fear of bending the boning or the grass is muddy due to rain? That’s ok (said with a smile) we will find another way!

No car? Natalie personally chauffered both Dale and myself to our post ceremony location, and even dropped us off at the reception afterwards. Again we were amazed and so thankful.

At every step of the process Milque, you were angels. Natalie, my family mentioned how well you adapted and fitted in to the pre-ceremony preparations! The way you carry yourself, communicate to those of us in front of the camera and perhaps a little “new” to this game, coupled with your easy nature and patience is a true testament to you as a person and your professionalism. I cannot wait to see your craftsmanship at work behind the camera!

But Milque, you did much more than capture our wedding day. You were attentive to our needs, responsive in your communications and always presented to us with a can do attitude. For this, we are forever grateful!

Love Mr & Mrs Ryan xxx”

Amanda + Chris

“I don’t even know how to thank you for all your support in the lead up to our wedding. The day was so amazing – I was so overwhelmed by how wonderful it is to celebrate our marriage with all the people I love. We can’t stop smiling and laughing as we have flashbacks to the day. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing – everything was perfect. Thank you Michael for all of your wonderful recommendations – each and every one of them contributed to making our fairy tale wedding a reality. Nat has such a special quality – her warm nature made us feel so comfortable. Please thank Bronwyn for continuing to capture the reception antics – we can’t wait to see the photos.

We are on our way to our chateau in the Loire Valley – so much to celebrate and be grateful for!!

Hope all is great with you. Looking forward to catching up when we get back!!

Amanda and Chris”

Chanelle + Lachlan

“Hi Michael and the Milque team,

Lachlan and I would just like to thank you, Caillie, Dan, Freya and the rest of the Milque team for photographing and videoing our wedding day. The day ran so smoothly and we were very pleased with the tireless efforts they all placed to ensure our wedding day was perfectly captured. It was such a special and remarkable day we will remember for years to come, and we’re so pleased Milque was a part of it all.

Once again thank you, and we look forward to seeing all the photos when we return from our relaxing honeymoon away!

Regards,

Chanelle and Lachlan”

Tayla + Lincoln

“Hi to the lovely team at Milque,
My husband and I had the honer of having Liz as our photographer for our wedding on Friday the 29th of August. She was absolutely amazing and were so happy that we chose Milque for our photography. Liz was such a beautiful person and so much fun and she made our day so much more enjoyable. From the bottom of our hearts we were so lucky to have her take our photos on our wedding day. Out of all my wedding memories having Liz there with me in the morning will be one that I will cherish forever. We cannot wait to see how the photos turn out and I will be recommending Milque photography to all of my friends and family. A big thank you as well goes to Michael for all of his emails and helping to make our special photos possible. Thank you so much to the beautiful team at Milque.

Kindest Regards,
Tayla and Lincoln”

Nell + Luke

“Luke and I had the best time with Liz for our engagement shoot.

I hate having my photo taken but felt really relaxed and in good hands with Liz, who is obviously so passionate about photography. She trawled through tree branches and lay flat on the ground to get the right angles. Such commitment to the job! But most importantly she made us feel comfortable – felt like we were catching up with an old friend. Such a testament to her skills as a professional photographer.”

Corinne + Andrew

“Well we are sitting at the airport this morning reminiscing on what a wonderful day we had on Saturday, integral to this was Milque. Nat had the day running like clockwork, and she knew every photo I wanted and made sure to get it. The moment we met Nat we were both blown away by her, and having her share our day with us was a true blessing, our only regret was not getting a photo with her!

We received so many comments from people on the day, it’s easy to see why you guys are the best in the business.

Freya excelled at the reception, she stayed for such a long period of time and we barely noticed her for a lot of the night (she allowed us to enjoy the night while she captured the candid moments), and she made a huge effort to get Andrew and I in the photo booth together, which I am so grateful for as we were getting pulled in all directions on the night, and wouldn’t have made it in there together if not for Freya’s efforts.

Please give Nat our biggest thanks and we are thanking our lucky stars that we made the right photography decision, no one else would come close to comparing to Milque. We can’t wait to see the photos, we are still marvelling over the engagement photos Liz took!

We love you guys!

Corinne & Andrew”

Elizabeth + Brock

” just wanted to say how happy we are with the photos!

They are amazing and we can’t stop looking at them! I love them all!

Please pass on our thanks to Nat, Aaron and Danny :)

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dynamic group of photographers!

I am so overwhelmed with how amazing they are!

Thank you so much again!

“To the Milque team,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work.

We booked Milque about 18 months ago now and that decision was the best we could have ever made.

Michael, you have been amazing and an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process .From the moment we made our initial enquiry you were nothing short of professional-with friendly and personal touches included. An irreplaceable asset to the Milque team.

Liz, We were so pleased to find someone like you to work with us on our wedding day. You took the time to meet and talk with us about our needs and how we wanted our day to go. On the day you were so calm, cool and collected. We were running over time but nothing was a problem. You captured every detail. The whole bridal party only had praise & kind words for you. You are a true creative professional and a pleasure to work with. From day one I trusted that you would do an incredible job, and you did.

Freya, Thank you for being so reliable, professional, creative, honest and committed. You were a pleasure to work with. The boys could not speak more highly of you.

Thank you again to all the Milque team. We cannot wait to see all of our photos.

All our love..

Jake & Juanita Rowe X”

Kelly + Christopher

I just want to say a massive massive massive thank you! Your team are fantastic!

Aaron Jay and Freya were so amazing! They were fun, lovely, hilarious, and just great people! I was always in a way dreading doing the photo part of a wedding because I am def not a photogenic person so I rarely want to get in pictures, but your team made it easy and fun and it didn’t drag on too long like other weddings I have attended. I can not praise your team enough. They are all keepers ;)

Thank you so much for being a part of the unbelievable generous life changing prize and for making our day so much more then we could have dreamt. And please thank Aaron again for me, he had a challenge with our interesting bridal party and he handled them perfectly and just became a great part of our day, everyone loved him. Jay and Freya were so great to! I honestly don’t have the words to express my gratitude so I will stop rambling.

Thank you again :)”
