“Michelle Proctor, the Canadian born, Hong Kong based photographer who exclusively shot the new addition to the TAYLOR family – the Long Sleeved Taylor Top – worn over our RAVEN + ROSE lingerie, showcasing the female body as it is, in a ‘Worn To Be Seen’ way.
Ms Proctor is a divine mixture of soft and strong – a perfect feminine combo of attributes – which is something she attributes to the fierce imagery she shoots.”

“Michelle did a wonderful job. She made the experience so relaxing and easy – not always an easy feat during photoshoots especially when you are pregnant. Not only did the shoot go smoothly, the results were outstanding. She captured my personality and all the best angles of my bump. I also have to mention that before, during, and after the photoshoot Michelle was very responsive and flexible; an added bonus to her great talent. My husband and I couldn’t be more pleased.”

-Katherine Bisagni

 

“We couldn’t have been happier with the results of our family shoot with Michelle. She totally understood our vision, which was to capture us against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s many alleyways and all the little surprises we see in street corners and less frequented streets. Michelle worked so well with our young children, capturing the unscripted moments that typically unravel between shots. We went in assuming our children would last for an hour outdoors, but it’s testament to Michelle’s skills that our children were happy to play along for much longer. Michelle has a great eye for colour and backdrops and her approach is both organic and real.”

“I randomly found Flytographer when I was looking for a photographer located in Hong Kong that would take some pictures of us during our trip.
The result we got from Michelle blew us away. The quality and diversity of the pictures are amazing. And, most importantly, Michelle made us feel at ease right away which made the whole experience even more memorable. In addition of having our pictures taken I think it’s safe to say that we also made a new friend. 🙂
Christina and I couldn’t be happier with our experience and we recommend it to anyone who wants picture perfect memories of their trip!”

-Alex & Christina

 

“Thank you so much Michelle for doing our maternity shoot. You are a highly competent photographer who knows how to make use of your surroundings to capture the perfect image. Nick and I are not overly photogenic, but you guided us and we are thrilled with the results and how natural the images are. Having been together for 10 years, to have our first child is a dream come true for us. The photos you have taken truly capture just how happy and proud we are to be on the path as new parents. You have an amazing talent with a camera and a beautiful personality that perfectly suits this people oriented profession. A huge thanks from all three of us.”

– Nick & Lessie

 

“You are beyond generous and such a joy to work with. Thank you for coming over, I felt like you just snapped away at a typical day as we went about our day. Thank you for making us feel so at ease and for capturing such treasured shots of our precious Charlie. We will no doubt be contacting you again as we have been so tremendously impressed. Many thanks again Michelle.”

-The Varleys

 

“We were not sure what to expect from a maternity shoot but when Michelle walked into the room she made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We forgot about the camera within the first few minutes. Her enthusiasm and encouragements made it so easy to just be natural and enjoy the moment. It was wonderful working with someone so talented and professional. She understood what we wanted and combined it with some fresh new ideas and we ended up with stunning photos. We can’t wait to work with Michelle again in the near future and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants those precious moments in life captured forever.”

-Anthony & Esmari

 

“First of all: shooting with Michelle is fun! Her personality and enthusiasm made us instantly feel at ease and this shows in the pictures. Michelle has a keen eye for framing unique shots in any environment. Composition and quality of her pictures make them seem like professional magazine repo’s. One very pleasant aspect of working with Michelle is that she is very quick: in each new scene she was done taking her shots before we knew it – and as a result all our pictures look natural and not “posed” at all.”

-Ronny & Lauren

 

“It was a real pleasure working with Michelle because of her enthusiasm and professionalism. I requested shots of my teenage son that would reflect his personality and Michelle achieved that brilliantly, capturing a variety of moods and expressions. These are pictures we’ll treasure forever.”

-Priya Isaac

 

“Michelle was the most wonderful photographer! She suggested a way-cool spot for our portrait session, at a fishing village outside of Hong Kong that we would otherwise never have seen on our own. The whole shoot was such a cool experience. Michelle walked us around the winding alleyways of the little stilt houses and we saw some incredible views of the sun setting over the water! We had such a great time that the hour just flew by!”

-Cassie & Michael

 

“We arrived feeling quite nervous to do our first shoot but Michelle made us feel relaxed instantly. We had a really fun morning, where Michelle encouraged us to be ourselves while she snapped away in the background. Michelle not only planned out interesting backdrops, she had a creative eye for finding spots as we went along. She was also more than happy to incorporate our ideas in the shoot. We are very happy that Michelle was able to capture exactly what we had hoped for. We had a great time and we are loving our photos!”

– Aidan & Nicole

 

“We are thrilled with the family photo session we had with Michelle. The session itself was fun and our children, 2.5 years and 1 year, just happily played – no posing or controlled shots – while Michelle snapped away.  The results are really stunning.  Michelle’s creativity and timing is superb.  She managed to capture natural family fun and the spontaneity and joy that comes with having small children.   We are heartily recommending her to all our friends and will continue to do so.”

-The Carsons

 

“We met Michelle on the day of our wedding at the French Consulate of Hong Kong as our friends offered us her services to take pictures during our ceremony.Very quickly, she inspired confidence in us. As we were a little bit nervous, she discreetly started to take pictures of us and our guests catching perfect smiles and moments of simplicity. After a while, we did not even noticed that she was there with us and we guess that may be the secret to encourage people to behave naturally. As it was difficult to get a colour tone that complimented everyone, she decided to work out most of the pictures in black & white, and we really liked it. Both her talent and gentleness were very much appreciated. A second photo session is planned with her (a more intimate shoot with only the three of us) and we can’t wait to do it.”

– The Sollaris

 

“I asked Michelle to be the photographer at our wedding after seeing our friend’s family shots with her. There were so many genuine and beautiful pictures of them. I was surprised and amazed to learn that they did not pose, all Michelle did was follow them on a family day out. This approach was perfect for us. She did not disappoint. Our wedding photos came out very natural and stunning, yet effortless for us. Michelle managed to capture all the genuine and precious moments from we we can see joy, affection and love, not only of us but also our guests. But that is what we can expect from a professional and good photographer. What we enjoyed most about having Michelle is her cheerful personality and her positive energy. Her constant flow of great spirit also kept ours going. That made a huge difference on my wedding day as you can imagine how nervous and assurance seeking I could have been! We will choose Michelle again for future occasions and will recommend her to anyone who seeks natural, genuine and stunning photos as well as an enjoyable photographing experience.”

-Neil & Shirley

 

“We could not be happier with the way the shoot went yesterday. Thank you for your amazing work and wonderfully patient demeanour. We cannot wait to see the results.”

“On behalf of Movember Hong Kong, we would like to thank you for you participation in this year’s campaign. It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our gala party photographer and the photos were fantastic. We hope to work with you again in 2014! Many thanks.”

-The Movember HK Team

 

“Working with Michelle was very easy and fun. Once I saw her albums on the website I knew I wanted her to be the photographer of my special pictures. I loved how effortless the emotions on the pictures were captured and I wanted just that. Going into the photo-shoot I was nervous because I thought I was going to be posing all day. Contrary to that Michelle’s modern approach required me to do no posing! I was so relieved. I felt like I was just hanging out with friends during the pictures. I was really comfortable and enjoyed the experience. Michelle was easy to reach and professional. I am coming back for baby pictures next!”

-Jake & Cameron

 

“Michelle shot our wedding in the brutal heat of the Indian summer. She was most accommodating and amicable to a culture completely alien to her and a weather most unfriendly. On the day of our wedding, she was there in the background taking snapshots of the day disguised in a sari. When we got the pictures back we saw that Michelle had encompassed our dreams and saw things that we were not able to see. She certainly has the gift of taking ordinary situations and giving them an artistic flair. She was once again very professional, enthusiastic, creative and energetic. She was able to take charge when needed and at the same time not be intrusive. I have recommended Michelle to my friends and I would not hesitate to continue to recommend her. She is truly a fabulously gifted photographer!”

-Rajiv & Shubha

 

“Michelle was so patient with our toddler and managed to capture his true essence in the photographs. Michelle had a knack for choosing the best locations with optimal lighting, which made our photographs so beautiful. We love the colors that came through.”

– The Setos

 

“Michelle is fantastic at capturing natural moments.”

– Narcisa Pheres

 

“We had a wonderful experience on our photo shoot with Michelle and she made me feel completely at ease and beautiful. She was very accommodating and was so easy to work with. We appreciated her patience and enthusiasm for her work! The pictures are fabulous!”

-Christy & Matthew

 

“I was recently privileged enough to have Michelle take some beautiful photos of myself and my boyfriend. At the end of the day we both walked away saying she is going to go very far in this industry. My boyfriend and I, not ever having had photos taken of us, were both quite stiff, awkward and didn’t really know what to do. Michelle was fantastic in the way she directed us. She made us both feel very comfortable. Michelle was great in coming up with ideas for us and had a great eye for backdrops. We walked around the streets and she knew what would look great in the photographs. I was ecstatic on how my photos came out. Michelle did the most amazing job. I would recommend her for anyone looking for portraits. I will definitely be using her again.”

“Dave and I loved the previous photos Michelle took for us, so we couldn’t have thought of anyone better to take our wedding pictures. Michelle was amazing on the day, she had so many ideas for us and our wedding party. She was wonderful at giving everyone direction and making all of us feel so comfortable, which reflects in our incredible photos. I am so happy we got Michelle to take our wedding pictures, these are images that we will cherish forever. Michelle you did a phenomenal job, thank you!!”

– Dave & Amber

 

“Before our photo shoot with Michelle, we were feeling very nervous at the thought of pictures with our very busy 3 year old and 6 month old.  Not to mention, being in front of the camera certainly doesn’t come naturally for us.  The shoot ended up going great!  Michelle was so relaxed and great with our children (and us).  Our 3 year old warmed to her so quickly!  We hardly noticed the camera.  It felt like we were just spending nice a day out at the park.  Not only was she fantastic to work with but we couldn’t have been happier with how our photos turned out.  She comes highly recommended from us and we will definitely be using her in the future!”

-The Rempels

 

“We found Michelle on Asiaxpat.com and it was our best find! We liked her instantly when we met her. She has a cheerful personality and her happy and easy-going presence made everyone feel comfortable at the Wedding when having their photos taken. Michelle is really a talented photographer. She was very attentive to details and had a creative eye for catching the special moments. The post editing and final touch on the pictures were excellent –  as a result we received truly memorable photos from our special day and compliments from all our guests who love the photos as well. We would certainly recommend her to anyone for any occasion. Her fees are very reasonable as well. We were very lucky to find Michelle as our wedding day photographer.”

-Hannu & Hermonie

 

“Michelle is very passionate about what she’s doing. She allowed the shoot to unravel in a natural way, and captured our best & FUN moments, as well as my little girl’s multiple facial expressions. She captured the essence of who my daughter is.  I completely trusted her when choosing the location, style, and final shots. I didn’t even request to preview the images while shooting, it was the most relaxing and joyful experience. I’m glad that I found her to be our photographer. Thank you so much Michelle!!”

– Vince Chung

 

“We both had a great time with Michelle during the photo shoot. It was something completely new to the pair of us but Michelle was very professional, helpful, enthusiastic and we soon really got into it and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were extremely pleased with the final shots. I highly recommend Michelle for any kind of portrait shots. Thanks Michelle!”

– Scott & Hannah

 

“What made this shoot with Michelle so unusual, is we fully enjoyed the experience despite us being rather camera shy and the weather being wet and chilly.
It felt more like a wander through a charming village – enjoying the birds, noodle soup shop, temple and beach with our busy body toddler. There were no forced “smile” moments and the directing was very subtle, with us often forgetting we were being captured. Despite it tipping down, Michelle was game to get wet and enjoy exploring Sheko with our family until she had plenty of shots she was happy with. The booking & editing process was slick and professional, and I’d recommend her to our friends – especially those that would like a relaxed, intimate and natural family shoot. Good luck growing your business in Hong Kong Michelle!”

-The Harems

 

“Thanks Michelle! The pictures are great! We had a really fun time walking around with you and getting these great shots. They are really special. Thanks for customizing the couples package we chose! You definitely didn’t have to, but its nice that you know your business well enough to be flexible. We really appreciate it. We will definitely pass on your name to people we know if they are looking for a photographer!”

-Brian & Jen

 

“Michelle is great in so many ways: she is a very talented photographer; her photos are very candid and energetic; she is super cool to work with, very friendly and so easy to get along with; and the chemistry of the whole session was just wonderful! My entire family love her and her work!”

-Jingwen & Johnson

 

“Michelle organized a shoot for a special event I am having for my daughter. She succeeded in easily capturing her personality and created a beautiful ambiance. She completely understood my requests, my desires, as they were very specific, and to be honest, the results are just amazing! I’m so happy with all these beautiful pictures of my daughter. My daughter spent a delightful and memorable day with Michelle. The organization of the different ambiances I expected was absolutely perfect, I highly recommend her work.”

-Caroline

 

“Working with Michelle was a great experience both pre and post the photo shoot. She was professional, creative and talented to work with. Michelle understood our brief clearly and was able to co-ordinate and deliver us with a great variety of locations for different settings and backdrops. We could not be happier with our final shots.The shoot was the first time we had taken professional family photos with our 5 month old daughter and she really captured some beautiful moments. We highly recommend Michelle as a photographer and we look forward to working with her again in the future.”

– The Oostings 

 

“Michelle is an incredibly talented photographer. This was our first time working with her and I know it won’t be our last. She is so easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable.

We love our maternity pictures and can’t wait to do a newborn session with you and our little princess!! Thank you Michelle for the beautiful shots!”
