Hi, I'm Andrew or Andy if you prefer! I am a multiple award winning North Wales wedding photographer, with over 10 years experience in wedding photography. I am originally from Chester, but now live in Flintshire with my wife Lisa and two boys Emrys and Ewan.

I was named as one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the world in 2023 by the Guild of Wedding Photographers, which I am massively proud of! 

I offer a friendly but professional service, specialising in wedding photography across the North West, Cheshire and North Wales.

I have had a passion for Photography from a young age and I have been fortunate enough to turn that passion into a career after taking the plunge and going full time in 2014. Since then I have captured hundreds of weddings in many different locations and settings, covering a wide range of styles.

I use high quality professional equipment to create stunning, unique images of your wedding day. But in my spare time you will find me out and about with my mini Pentax camera! 

I also love travelling, movies, gaming, coffee and binging the latest big hit on Netflix!

I endeavour to step back and let you enjoy your wedding day, capturing candid moments whilst you are relaxing and conversing with your wedding guests. I am also more than capable of setting up and capturing stunning group photographs and creative wedding portraits.

"I have competitive wedding packages to suit everyone and it is my belief that no matter what your budget is, you should still receive the same high standard service and professional quality"

Don't worry if you are camera shy, or if you are like me and look in pain when asked to smile on demand! I have tonnes of experience with camera shy couples and will have you relaxed in no time. After all, natural smiles and laughter look so much better than forced ones!

I will never try and push you into doing anything you are not comfortable with and I will always listen to your suggestions and let you decide the flow of your wedding day. After all it is your wedding day and you want to be able to enjoy yourself, but still come away with a set of photographs that you can look back on in years to come.


I have had the pleasure of shooting hundreds of amazing Weddings across the North West, including Snowdonia, Chester, the Wirral and Flintshire to name a few. I have even had the honour of documenting Elopements across Europe, including a 38 degree scorcher in Southern Spain! So if it's a field in North Wales or a stately manor in Cheshire, I'll be there.

Having been a North Wales wedding photographer for over 10 years, I regularly photograph weddings at venues in North Wales and Cheshire, so chances are that I have worked at your venue in the past!
