About

Based in Manchester but happily travelling futher afield.

With over 10 years experience I’ve never under-delivered on photos promised, rain or shine.

As a full time wedding photographer, I'll work hard to have your gallery finished by the time you are back from your honeymoon.

I do my very best to tell as full a story as possible in a polite and discrete way so the focus of the day stays on you.

I've been known to choose a shirt to blend in with a light or dark walled venue.

Us

Ren accompanies me to most weddings.

One of the twelve photos on the top of the homepage is hers.

While she is not billed as a second photographer, Ren is a wizard with a fisheye lens and is sometimes found on a church balcony with a telephoto.

She frees me up to be in the right place at the right time.

Highlights

Over the years I've ended up photographing in some famous places and world known faces.

The real highlights are knowing you are consistently doing a good job when you get a run of weddings for a set of close friends.

Story telling

Set the scene, tell the story, enhance with the details.

I aim for simple, elegant compositions with clear subjects and minimal distractions.

A core of reportage blended with the essential group shots and editorial details.

Reliable

I take the less glamorous side of this job very seriously.

An example - the safe storage of your photographs.

I have a lovely Google review from Leyla. Leyla and Steve got married in 2008. I was able to upload their photographs in 2018 to replace their disk (we were on CDs back then!) that they had lost while in Australia.

Value

I hope people are impressed by the consistent quality of my wedding photography over a long day.

Saturday Summer wedding coverage is £1000.

I'd rather have conversations than packages, please do get in touch.

Genuine

All the wedding photographs on this website are taken either by myself or Ren at real weddings.

No model shoots, no borrowed "inspiration" images, no stock photography.

If you find any of my images stolen and used on other photographers' websites please let me know and I'll paypal you enough for a nice latte and a slice of cake.
