About Me

Hi – that’s me to the right, a Manchester Wedding Photographer, photographing Lorna’s & my ‘selfie’ just before her brilliant wedding to Hamid at Styal Lodge.

I’m probably like you – camera shy and not wanting to be the centre of attention all day. That’s where I get commissioned – to photograph your day in a natural, relaxed style with little intrusion. No forced or cheesy poses, just classic, modern wedding photography – sometimes with a hint of tradition if you wish.

Well, my background is in TV & Film. The years I spent directing and editing gave me an understanding of how to capture natural, stylish images which I have carried through into my wedding work. My use of natural light plus my skils in post-production ensures you get images you’ll cherish for years to come.

I’m a full-time professional Manchester Wedding Photographer, but also photograph corporate and commercial projects midweek. With a degree in photography, and over 300 weddings to my name, I also bring a wealth of experience to your wedding day.

I’ve written articles for several photography magazines, been a judge on Professional Photographer Magazine’s ‘Photographer Of The Year’ competition, plus my work gets featured on many of the leading wedding blogs and websites too.

I was also the Male Wedding Photographer of The Year 2015 in the Great Northern Wedding Awards and Runner-Up the 2016 Awards too!

Why not have a look at my 2016 Review and see why I love my job – and what I could produce on your wedding day…

My Approach

Manchester Wedding Photography

I photograph your wedding day as if I were an extra wedding guest – quietly and unobtrusively. Everything is totally live and unstaged, with no contrived or awkward posing. I don’t make your wedding day a fashion shoot, or keep you away from your guests for long periods of time.

A quick twenty minute session for some beautiful, natural portraits of you both, plus around the same again for a few family group images are the only formalities in the whole day. Even ‘Auntie Betty’ would be impressed…

It’s your day, and your wedding story…
