About Me

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

I have been a professional photographer for a few years now, and have photographed well over 300 weddings to date.

My background is in TV & Film though; the years I spent directing 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.

I’m a full-time professional Manchester Wedding Photographer too, not just topping up a 9-5 day job salary 😉

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 currently 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 my job – and what I could create for 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…
