How it works…

If you've made it this far you'll know I take pictures at weddings! The guests are in a great mood, everyone dressed in their finest and ready for a great time, so it's my job to capture that atmosphere! From preparing for the day nice and early, right through to the late-night drunken dancing, it's always feels special to be part of such a happy occasion! I do my very best so everyone can remember those special moments again and again!

 

Part of being a documentary photographer is to have the ability to capture people with all the emotions and expressions that occur on a wedding day; be that nerves, joy, being deep in thought, and all the while being as unobtrusive as possible. Most of the day I'll be found hiding in a corner or sneaking behind a tree, waiting for those little moments that combine to make your wedding day so special.

 

I've covered weddings in many different locations, from traditional churches, working men's clubs, beaches, a circus and even the pitch of a Premier League football ground! I'm always up for a challenge, so if there's an old building, a little corner of a park or an amazing landscape near your ceremony or reception venue then I definitely want to help out!

 

Once I've finished with the camera, it’s time for processing your wedding photos… Nothing too dramatic, I just want to make sure the essence of the day is captured in each frame. I've been using the highest spec digital photography software for many years now, and all the while making sure all images are archived in a number of secure locations. The finished gallery will live on a secure part of my website for as long as you want it to be there, with the option to download any of the photos any time you like.

 

If this sounds like what you're looking for in a wedding photographer, then you're welcome to stop by for a brew and a chat about the plans for your big day, and our photography of course – with absolutely no obligation at all. Once you're satisfied I'm the photographer for the day, I just ask for a small deposit to secure the date. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Questions & Answers

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL TO PHOTOGRAPH A WEDDING?

I've covered weddings in Cyprus, Nepal and upstate New York amongst other places, so I'm happy to travel as far as I'm needed. The bulk of my work takes place in and around the Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Yorkshire areas, but if you want me to travel further than a couple of hours drive, then I ask for one night's accommodation. I wouldn't risk the UK motorway system on the morning of your wedding!

WILL YOU TAKE FAMILY GROUP SHOTS?

I've covered almost 100 weddings and I can only remember one that didn't want any group shots. It's not documentary style photography, but still a key part of the day for most people. My approach is to get these completed with the minimum of fuss, aiming to get them all done within twenty minutes.

AFTER OUR WEDDING, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECeiVE OUR PHOTOS?

In usual circumstances, it usually takes me between 21 and 30 days. However, at peak 'wedding season' it can be a little longer than that. I will of course keep you updated on my progress.

CAN I PICK AND CHOOSE MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS?

Absolutely. I look to produce the highest quality images from your day, but you may not like a given image for whatever reason. Via our unique and easy to use proofing system, you can pick which photos you'd like in your finished gallery.

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE REcieVE?

I'm loathe to give exact numbers, as a lot depends on the circumstances of the day, however for a full day shoot I can say you'd receive no less than 400 images.

CAN WE PRINT THE PHOTOS?

You'll receive all your processed images via digital download and with that, permission to use them as you wish, be that for social media, printing etc. You will be able to copy the address and password of the gallery, where friends and family will be able to view and download the images themselves.

MY FRIEND HAS A GOOD CAMERA, WHY SHOULDN'T I HIRE THEM FOR LESS MONEY?

It's absolutely your choice of course, but we doubt that your friend would have the experience that comes with shooting almost 100 weddings. Would they be prepared for shooting in low-light or harsh sunlight? We use high-end camera equipment that is insured for around £25k, not to mention the technical know-how to deal with any given situation, experience of how to plan photography around a wedding and not forgetting spare equipment in case something breaks! If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur!
