Beautiful Photography from Luis Calow
Hi there, welcome to my page! I’m Lu, born & bred in Yorkshire, and without being too cliche I create wedding stories in my unique, relaxed style of documentary photography. My roots are in fine art and being a yorkshirem’n I’m in love with nature; shooting anywhere in the elements really helps to shape my work and has always given me inspiration. I’m also a published fashion photographer on my non-wedding days!
I like working closely with my couples so they get to know me and make them feel comfortable around the camera and familiar with how I work, so we can get some amazing natural shots showing the real you and not the ‘say cheeese!’ you.
My style is to remain as unseen as possible throughout your day giving me the best position to catch the fleeting moments, goofs, tears, faces being pulled! While also being able to jump in and organise group shots and even help you out on your day.
I like easy going, like-minded couples that love photography and have a passion for unique, timeless photos they’ll want to keep looking at! I’m always up for hearing about new ideas and challenges so I’d love to hear about what plans you have bubbling away.

From the first meeting with Luis, over a glass of wine in a café in Sheffield, we both knew we had found the photographer for our big day.
Luis was easy to get along with, down to earth, relaxed and, most importantly to us, totally understood what we we’re after for our wedding.
We had a look through some examples of his work and were really happy with what we saw. His style was a perfect fit and we we’re thrilled when we confirmed the booking.
We went for a pre-shoot to get to know each other better, to get used to his style of working and to allow Luis to get to know us a little better. It was a great day out and the end results were fantastic, and got us very excited for the prospect of what he would be able to capture over our wedding weekend. The pre-shoot simply reaffirmed what we had thought from day one – that Luis was the absolute perfect choice for us.
By the time the wedding came round, and Luis came to spend the weekend with us and our guests at our venue, we had formed a good relationship and all the formalities of arranging payment, timings, accommodation etc. were taken care of quickly and professionally.
Luis’s work over the weekend was brilliant, he mixed and mingled with our guests exactly as we had hoped. All our guests commented on his work during the day and evening, expressing how impressed they were and how they actually assumed he was a close friend or part of the family. It was a pleasure to have him with us, working hard and capturing the day, but also being sociable and getting involved with the guests and kids.
It’s fair to say the resulting pictures are stunning! We couldn’t be happier. They’re exactly how we wanted them to look and they perfectly capture our wedding.
We’d happily recommend Luis to our family and friends, and to anyone looking for a brilliant, professional photographer to work with to capture their celebrations.
We can’t thank you enough!
Mat & Wendy
