Beautiful Photography from Stephen McGowan
Hello! I’m Stephen, half of a ‘his & her’ wedding photography team. Myself and Emma (life, and photography “partner in crime”) absolutely love being involved with weddings!
We provide both single and double wedding photographer packages for your special day.
We live in the charming South Manchester suburb of Didsbury, a stones throw away from the Cheshire countryside. We both enjoy our days out walking, cycling and generally being together – so it’s fair to say we work amazingly well together!
We are based in the heart of Didsbury but provide a fantastic wedding photography service all over Cheshire, Manchester, the North West, the rest of the UK, Europe, and destination weddings all over the world.
About our style: unobtrusive and low profile to document your story together – picking out all of the intricate details you may have missed during the blur of your big day! (it flies by!)
We also enjoy composing stunning original portrait shots together – using styled lighting (Emma) and various techniques to give your portraits that added ‘wow factor’ which will leave your friends green with envy.
But enough about us, this is your day.
Your wedding is about you; it’s the happiest day of your life and something which is a privilege to be involved in. We’re all different and so it’s nice to get to know Brides and Grooms, and what makes you click. More often than not we end up knowing each other well enough to come away as good friends – and that’s what it’s all about really!
What does my style really mean… An unobtrusive presence whilst recording the biggest day of your lives, individually editing every image by hand to create beautiful elegant images for your wedding day tale. This unobtrusive storytelling combines natural reportage with candid portraits. We especially love the time spent with you guys to create some wonderful bride and groom portraits, it’s a great opportunity for you both to relax and have a moment together. During the preparation of your wedding we will discuss every detail to be ready for every planned event, as nothing may be left to chance on the day!
Those laughs, smiles, tears, kisses, holding hands, chatting guests, a little tipple, speeches (which are always amusing), table arrangements, having a good old natter with parent's and grandparent's, that moment when you first see each other.
National and International. Travel included up to 50 miles from Manchester.
Starting Price: £1300

We can not thank you enough for capturing the memories of our day. From start to finish you went above and beyond for us and it really shows in the quality of your photos and we love our presentation box too! The photographer to me has the hardest job at a wedding, of capturing all those little moments that allow us brides to remember for a lifetime our dream day and we can not fault you, as i will have mine forever either framed or in an album to look back on. Thank you for all that you done for us, its been a pleasure! Mr and Mrs Ireland
We would like to say a massive thank you to Stephen for our amazing wedding photographs. We felt at ease from the moment we first discussed the images and content and we knew we were in good hands. There are enough things to worry about when planning a wedding, and to know that this wasn’t one of them was priceless. Stephen managed to capture the essence of the day – the atmosphere, the joy, the love and laughter (especially the best man speech) and all the special moments that made it such a fantastic day. Our photographs are so natural and not staged, Stephen managed to capture everything so naturally. He was discreet and a pleasure to have around all day. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer for their special day. We will treasure ours forever. Thank you again from Angela and Carl x x.
