Hi, I'm Shane

Let your story unfold . . .

A fun loving kind of guy, I’m realistic too. I love my job, in fact, I really love it and I feel very humbled that people (including you guys who are reading this right now) choose me to document a part of their life.

I’m also a graphic designer, lover of a good night out, heading to the cinema with the family and I’m still playing football. I love travelling and simply just wandering around! so if you’re further afield drop me a message and we’ll hook up.

There is so much more to me and my story but I’ll keep this short so you can ask me anything else later.


Message Atken Photography for a quote and price for the day and to check their availability.

How would you describe your style?

I love documenting your journey, viewing the day from an artistic and creative perspective, its intense photo-blogging in the best way ever! (in my opinion obviously!) not only that once we've completed photographing and finish editing we start producing the most unique albums to tell your story, exactly the way it was. You definitely have to meet the sample albums and me of course in the studio or over a coffee (tea for me though, its a Yorkshire thing).

What do you love about weddings?

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.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Always meet and sit down with the photographer. The first rule above everything else is being comfortable with them (even having group hugs).

We offer a fair travel option which reflects actual costing

Thank you!

Thank you so much Shane, Kelly and Declan for making our special day so enjoyable. You all helped our wedding day to run seamlessly and the extra efforts to help our guests have fun was very much appreciated. The thoughtful suggestion to make the most of the evening light was also greatly we appreciated and we just really enjoyed the whole experience. We couldn't recommend you enough and can't wait to see the photos. Thank you again, Kelly and Brett

Friendly and fun

Shane is absolutely fantastic, I cannot recommend him highly enough! Great with kids and will do any photos you request. And it wasnt even my wedding, it was my sister's. Just can't wait to see the pictures now!

Captured our day perfectly

we could not recommend Shane enough he captured our day perfectly, he is so down to earth and makes you all feel so comfortable and welcoming. The experience and professionalism we received was second to none and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend atken photography to other.

Cannot fault my experience with Atken at all. I don’t like having pictures taken but I knew I would regret it if I didn’t have any professional ones on my wedding day. We went to a wedding fair and met Shane at his stall. He didn’t give us any hard sell or try convince us that he was the best, he just stepped back and gave us time to look through his portfolio. Within about 3 page turns we knew we wanted him. I was very nervous at the pre-shoot but he chose a local beach for the location and we brought our dog along too. Towards the end I became more relaxed infront of the camera and it showed on our pictures. On the wedding day I was very confident in both Shane and Kelly to capture our day perfectly and we weren’t disappointed, I even enjoyed being infront of the camera! I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone you will not be disappointed.
