Beautiful Photography from Tim Simpson Photography
Hello! We are Tim, Bekka & Amanda, and together we make up the Tim Simpson Photography Team.
We specialise in alternative, creative and elegant Reportage Wedding Photography. We love shooting weddings and we love photography – We are a genuine family business (we call ourselves the original Simpsons) and collectively photography is our passion and mantra in life.
Great pride is taken by us in capturing those special, once in a lifetime moments for you to cherish, but of course we do this in our own unique and innovative way, turning real life moments in to captured pieces of art.
Our style is fresh and always evolving to new original and fun ways to document your wedding. We are each individually fully qualified with years of experience in the bag.
Because of our creative working style, we have been asked to do workshops at large Festivals such as Kendal Calling festival and Henley Royal Regatta, some of our other clients include Lacoste, Manchester Art Gallery, The Lowry, and many more! Tim has been practicing professional photography for over 20 years now and has studied the practice from a young age.
Amanda also has years of experience in photography and also in videography and has photographed some awesome bands and musicians including Elvis Costello, Echo and the Bunnymen and The Smiths. Bekka is 24 years old has studied and practiced photography for around 8 years now and has a BA (Hons) Fashion Styling & Photography degree- and she has lived in New York working for renowned fashion photographer Cass Bird!
Not only do we offer wedding photography, we also offer Photo Booths, Engagement shoots and boudoir sessions, Rock The Frock sessions and Vintage makeover experiences for bridal parties pre-wedding- If we are booked as your wedding photographers we offer a special price to you for all of these additional services.
We are based on the Lancashire/Cheshire borders in Saddleworth, handily close to Manchester but we do travel the full length of the UK and beyond to shoot weddings and for other events – St Ives Vintage Wedding is the record so far.
We are looking for kick-ass couples planning unique and awesome weddings who want their photography to be just that little bit different- if that’s you then get in touch for a quote!
Our approach on the day is informal, we like to act like a guest, that way we can get right into the action without people being conscious of us. We always have a good look round the venue and the surrounding area before the wedding. Our aim is to produce natural, reportage style images with a creative edge. We get our inspirations and influences from all over the place- Fashion, Film, Art, Music etc, so we're not just reproducing someone else's work at weddings, we try our very best to be original! We generally ask for 30-40 mins of time later in the wedding day to take some styled Couples Portraits, we will already know most of the images we're going to take in this time with the help of our trusty iPad which will have any images from Pinterest that you have sent us for reference. Its not long so we have to be well prepared. We see the wedding photography process very much as a collaboration, so we always find out what kind of images you like so we'd never ask you do something you are not comfortable with or else this often shows in the images. Pinterest is an amazing tool that we use to collaborate and share ideas continuously right from when we first meet you up until your wedding day. This way your images will ooze both our and your personalities!
We love the fact that we are producing something that will last for many generations. Our albums and images will mean so much to people that haven’t even been born yet, & we love that! With the internet and things like Pinterest, Tumblr and Facebook people really know what a good image is now. Its great to work with our couples and collaborate with them to produce art that they will never tire of looking at, art that will remind them of their day and will provide them with visual memories. Wedding photos attach a kind of unique, special meaning to an image that you don’t get from other types of photography.
1. Arrange a meeting! It’s important for you to put a face to a name and to ensure that you feel compatible and comfortable around your potential photographer(s). 2. Check that the images you’re seeing on the photographers website are from REAL weddings and are not all set-up, planned shoots. One or two creative shoots is totally cool but you want to be sure your photographers can deliver when it truly matters! 3. Save, save, save…. Invest, invest, invest! Yes we want you to book us, and no we’re not ‘cheap’. However your photography is so so important and we believe that we can give you the best images. In fact, we are so confident that we can provide you with amazing images if you invest in us that we offer a 100% Money back guarantee! Meaning that, if when you get your photos back from us, if you hate them and they are not as we’ve promised you, you will get your money back. After the cake has been eaten and the last dance danced, your images suddenly become the most important part of your day forever. After all they are your memories, any money can't buy these.
we travel nationally and Internationally

Just wanted to say a big thank you for being our photographer on our wedding day. You both did such a fabulous job from start to finish. I love your style of shots and it was brilliant to have a full wedding day and barely know you were there! All the photography is beautiful and so many people got emotional looking at them. Tim's efforts to get the perfect shot is admirable (breaking into a sweat skidding all over Manchester Town Hall!) ) A pleasure to be with you both on our big day, thank you both so much!
Tim & Bekka,
We just wanted to say a huge thank you from both of us!! We loved having you both at our wedding and you helped make everything run so smoothly!! So many of our guests have mentioned you, and how you seemed to be everywhere you needed to be but they never spotted you til they were looking!!! And you really seemed to bring out the best in our camera shy little ones. Tim – I think Emily was really quite taken with you!
We both had lots of fun doing our ‘couple’ photos too – which is never something I thought we’d say. Especially John!! Thank you both so, so much! We had a wonderful day and we’re so glad we asked you to record it for us. I don’t even need to see the photos to know they will be wonderful!! Many thanks, Gen & John Adams xx
I knew your photographs from Em & Dan's wedding were going to be good but they have reduced me to happy tears, sat outside work! They are amazing and so much better than the high hopes that I already had. You two were amazing on the day. You made it so relaxed and easy to be photographed. Thank you so very much xxx
We found the perfect duo in Tim and Bekka! The fun and laughter they brought to our day made it better than we ever imagined! They captured the magic and emotion of our day in their perfect, fabulous pictures! Our day was truly magical, and we will be eternally grateful! You have produced magical memories that we will treasure forever xx
