About Me

family photographer manchester

Hello – that’s me with my wife and daughter…on a rare day off in Heaton Park.

As a Manchester Wedding Photographer, I have been working professionally  for a few years now, and have photographed over 400 weddings to date.

My background is in TV & Film though; the years I spent directing, producing and editing TV Commercials 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. My clients love my natural, timeless look to my images.

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 am the Great Northern Wedding Awards’ Male Photographer of The Year 2017-18 too!

Why not have a look at my GALLERY and see why I love being a Manchester Wedding Photographer – and what I could offer you as your wedding photographer…


My Style

Manchester Wedding Photography

I’m asked all the time about my style – am I documentary, reportage, traditional? The simple answer is I don’t really know. So here’s my sales pitch…

As a Manchester Wedding Photographer, 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.

After your ceremony, we’ll spend a quick fifteen minutes taking some beautiful, natural portraits of you both, plus around the same again for a few family group photos. These are the only ‘formalities’ really. Even ‘Auntie Betty’ would be impressed!

From preparations to first dance (if you’d like me there all day) – your wedding is captured showing the fun, the laughter, the happy tears and the emotion and style as your days rolls out.

Simple, classic wedding photography you’ll cherish for years to come.

There. Sales pitch over….x
