Why I love photography in Cheshire...

Beautiful Cheshire Wedding Photography

As a Cheshire wedding photographer, I am truly blessed to be able to capture the most intimate and joyous moments in people's lives. Weddings are one of the most significant events that a couple will ever experience, and being able to document these moments is an honour and a privilege.

One of the reasons why I love being a Cheshire wedding photographer is the opportunity to work with so many wonderful couples. Each wedding is unique and special, and I enjoy getting to know each couple and their love story. It's important for me to understand their vision for their wedding day, so that I can capture it in a way that reflects their personalities and style.

Another reason why I love being a Cheshire wedding photographer is the beauty of the surroundings. Cheshire is an incredibly picturesque county, with stunning landscapes and historic architecture that provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photography. From the rolling hills and lush gardens to the charming villages and grand stately homes, Cheshire offers endless possibilities for capturing beautiful and romantic images.

Finally, being a Cheshire wedding photographer allows me to be creative and push the boundaries of traditional wedding photography. I am always looking for new and unique ways to capture the magic of a wedding day, whether it's through a dramatic sunset shot, a creative use of light, or an unexpected angle. It's these creative moments that make my job so rewarding and enjoyable, and why I feel so fortunate to be a Cheshire wedding photographer.

A little bit about me...

The life of a Chester wedding photographer

Since becoming a full time photographer in 2014, I have captured hundreds of weddings in many different locations and settings, covering a wide range of styles.

I absolutely love being a Cheshire wedding photographer and I am so grateful to all of my previous couples for letting me be a part of their day.

"I strongly believe that everybody should get the same high quality service regardless of budget"

When I'm not capturing wedding photos (or editing them!), I enjoy spending time with my little family and going on an adventure, taking photos of landscapes around North Wales, especially in Snowdonia national park.

I also love travelling, movies, gaming and a good box set on Netflix!

Cheshire Wedding Photographer FAQ's

What should I consider when choosing a wedding photographer?

When choosing a wedding photographer, prioritise finding one whose style aligns with your vision for the day. Make sure you get along with them, because comfort and compatibility with the photographer are also crucial. Also, ensure the cost and package options are within your budget.

Once you have shortlisted a few photographers that fit your criteria, take a look at their portfolios and client reviews to gain a better understanding of their work. Arrange a meeting or phone call with them to discuss your wedding day vision, the type of photographs you're looking for and any particular requirements or preferences you may have. A good photographer will be able to offer suggestions and guide you through the process, making it a stress-free and enjoyable experience!

What is your photography style?

My photography style can be best described as natural and timeless. I strive to be in the right place to capture candid moments and real emotions in my photos, rather than posed or forced images. I want my couples to look back on their wedding photos and feel like they are reliving their special day all over again.

What is your pricing structure?

I offer a variety of package options to fit every budget. Please take a look at my pricing page more information on the packages available. If you require a custom package, then get in touch today to discuss your needs!

Do you have any advice for couples who are planning their wedding?

My best piece of advice for couples planning their wedding is to always remember that it's YOUR day! Don't let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn't do, and make sure you do what makes YOU happy. Also, try to relax and enjoy the day as much as possible - it goes by so fast! From the moment you wake up in the morning, until long after your first dance as husband and wife, take it all in and relish every single moment.
