HEY THERE | welcome

Hope you like what you see so far, in the gallery to my right you will see some of my work, highlights from some of the amazing days I have had the priviledge of collaborationg on. Please click on my BLOG to lots more images from my recent weddings. I only shoot 6 weddings a year to ensure that the creativity and quality is always there. If you would like to chat over any aspect of your day please get in touch HERE. I have shot well over 200 weddings and won many top awards. Basically if you would like your day covered in an artistic way but with minimum impact to the natural flow of the wedding we may be able to work together.

20's inspired wedding photograph

Amanda shot this great image of the beautiful Jessica at her wedding to Damien at the Royal Exchange in Manchester. The architecture of the Royal Exchange suited the style of the wedding perfectly, Jessica really did look fabulous taking lots of influence from the glamourous style of the 20’s and 30’s.

Tim’s Top Tip (for all you photographers)

Amanda shot this using our Nikon d700 and an f1.4 50mm prime lens to get that lovely blurry background (bokeh) using the setting of f2.8. Zoom lenses are great and very handy but you get a lovely feeling with a prime lens. We always shoot on a prime lens if we can. We love our 50mm f1.4 and our 85mm f1.8 lenses for portraits such as these.

Prime lenses have less glass elements than a zoom lens and therefore give a crisper image , the aperture blades are often different on a prime lens too giving that lovely creamy bokeh.

One more thing you have to think more with a prime, it’s less point and shoot, you need to look at your composition, look what happening in the scene in front of you and position yourself  accordingly , it’s too easy not to think when you have a zoom lens on your camera.


So if you are in the mood for spending some money on photographic equipment (of course you are, your a photographer!) do yourself a huge favour and buy one of the cheapest and best lenses available a 50mm. Leave all your zoom lenses in the cupboard and go and have some fun.
