Relaxed, natural wedding photography from a Vouge featured wedding photographer with over 10 years experience.

Hi there I’m Steven, a Manchester wedding photographer who provides relaxed and natural wedding photography across the North West. I have always had a passion for photography, but it became my full-time profession after I struggled to find the high levels of service and quality of wedding photography for my own wedding.

I strive to make your day as fun and relaxed as possible, a reassuring presence and someone who’s part of your team for the day.

My style of photography is all about you! I love capturing moments that make your day unique, from laughs and tears to that special kiss and I hope this shows in my wedding photography portfolio! People often forget that we only get one shot at capturing your wedding, so making sure you feel comfortable with your photographer and trust that they can deliver amazing shots throughout the day is really important, and I hope the person you choose to record your big day is me!

I live in Manchester and provide wedding photography Cheshire, Lancashire, and the North West. I think a lot of us feel awkward in front of the camera so being able to put people at ease and be themselves was a talent I hadn’t really found a use for until I took up photography. Whether I’m taking large group shots, individual images or a more relaxed documentary style photography my goal is always to deliver the best images to my clients consistently. This means I’m taking photographs of the same high standards at 8am while the bride is getting ready as I am as the guests begin to hit the dance floor.

“I believe that if you are relaxed and enjoying the day, we will get the very best photographs, that really capture the emotion of your wedding.”

As a photographer and a member of the Royal Photographic Society, I work closely with couples to ensure that the big day goes exactly as planned and I’m on hand to make sure that your memories are yours to cherish forever.  Our packages all offer copyright, and ALL the pictures we take off your wedding will be yours to share with family and friends.

“I feel you shouldn’t have to worry about, how many, or how long or anything else on your day. I want you to relax and feel happy that you have chosen a stress-free wedding photographer.”

My experience ranges from working for some of the UK’s largest companies to working with Children in nurseries as well as eight years of weddings. I have experienced all sorts of events and my motto is “be prepared, be over prepared!” A wedding photographer is there to make your day run smoothly and without a hitch and to make you feel as relaxed in front of the camera and I pride myself on the level of service ALL my clients get. I have many stories to tell of when we have done things that people have then commented, “I can’t believe you would do that for me!”
