" As soon as we got engaged I called Michael to Pencil our date in. Michael has always photographed my two little girls (age 6 and 2 at the time of the wedding) and twin nephews from an early age and he was the first person that sprung to mind. I had never seen him at work at a wedding before but if judging by the way he worked with the kids this was going to be easy. I had seen some of his work and with his laid back persona and eagle eye and attention to detail we couldn't have made a better decision. Michael spent time with us in the weeks leading up, (including one afternoon at the venue itself asking us what we liked and didn't like) gathering vital information about guests and the ‘who’s who’ so he knew everyone by their first name on the day. He was so laid back he had a huge calming effect on the day no matter where he was at work. He had a plan B for everything, even the weather as it is so unpredictable in Ireland. You wouldn't have even known he was there, he blended in fantastically and pulled out all the stops for us…. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and the final Pics spoke for themselves. I couldn't recommend Michael highly enough and his professionalism didn't end the day of the wedding, he met with us personally afterwards and went through all the final pieces and what he would recommend for our album and what would work best etc. Thanks again Michael "

" Having no experience of professional photographic sessions, I didn't know what to expect, but Michael was great. Has young children himself so he understands the lack of concentration my 5 year old was prone to! All I can say is that I have the photo of a lifetime after this session. He captured the rare beauty we all have for that one moment!!! My daughter and I look like the best versions of ourselves, without looking posed. I'm more than ecstatic and proud to hang this portrait on the wall! "

" I met Michael through a friend and he kindly took the most beautiful pictures of my daughter. He spent a lot of time and effort trying to make my 4yr old cheeky monkey to look at the camera and pose! I couldn’t believe that he was able to take so many good shots, specially because my child wouldn’t stop moving! He is very professional, creative and so friendly and my child was at easy all the time. I’m delighted with the pics! "
" I love looking at the pictures, I think Michael really captured our personalities and the dynamic between me and my son- and he is absolutely great with kids, was patient and skillful when my son started messing. We will be back for another session! "
" So happy, got all my pictures of the kids printed and on disk! absolutely delighted with them. Anyone thinking of getting professional pictures done I would definitely recommend Michael Grubka. The patience he had with the kids was amazing and in turn captured them perfectly, the pictures turned out so natural. Thank you x "
" We had an amazing photo shoot with Michael. I really enjoyed the time in his home studio and love the results. He really captured the best moments. Excellent from start to finish! Super professional! And the cherry on the top was the carrot cake! Thank You! "
