ER Photography are Manchester Wedding Photographers, we record weddings in a totally organic and natural way, just as things happen. Our style of photography is often described as documentary, candid and unobtrusive and because there are two of us (Jo & Jon) we can capture moments you may both miss, so it’s a lovely surprise when you see the finished photos.
We get just as excited as our Brides & Grooms on the wedding day and always feel like friends taking photos not just photographers, so in order for us to blend in the day, we work hard in building that relationship with you both before the big day.
Natural, Documentary, Romantic, Relaxed, Informal.... and definitely unobtrusive.
That every wedding is unique with so many wonderful moments to capture.
As an initial guide we'd recommend budgeting around 10-15% of your total wedding budget for your wedding photographer, search the internet for Manchester Wedding Photographers or a relevant search and view their work, portfolio and blogs this should help you find a style you like. Don't worry if a photographer hasn't shot a wedding at your venue before, any good photographers will rise to the occasion and embrace a new challenge with a fresh pair of eyes. It isn't a venue that makes a photographer good or indeed the right photographer for you. Always arrange to meet any potential photographers you're interested in this will help you decide if there the right photographer for you, they're going to be with you for around 10hours so having a good relationship is a big part of choosing the right one.

I booked Jon and Jo as soon as we had the date finalised for the wedding. Johnny and I knew we wanted a photographer that would capture the wedding day along with us and our guests being ourselves and being natural. After scouring through the many blogs and websites of photographers, we fell in love with ER photography. The wonderfully candid and natural feeling came through in all of their pictures which was a big plus for us as we were not big posers and we really wanted the personalities of our wedding guests as well to come through. Nothing seemed overdone or too edited. We booked right away and on the day Jo and Jon did not disappoint. Even when it rained right there and then 30 minutes before the outdoor wedding ceremony, they managed to give us pictures that were fun and beautiful. And they were so ninja-ish going about it too. lolz. I think that is why their pictures all look so natural. Truly story telling at its finest. Thank you again so much for the beautiful pictures and the dedication you gave. Can’t wait for the next big event in our lives so we could have you capture it with us again. Much love!
We absolutely loved working with Jo and John… from the engagement shoot to the wedding day, they were a joy to work with and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. Our wedding photographs are amazing and show just how much fun everyone had on the day. A friend recently looked at our wedding album and DVD and commented… “Wow, they have a real talent for capturing such intimate and special moments… and I didn’t even realise they were there!”
We would 100% recommend Jo + Jon! Book them now… don’t miss out!!!
A huge huge thank you to Jo and John for our amazing wedding photographs. We have such beautiful memories to treasure for our whole lives. From the get go photography was high on our priority list and from the first meeting we knew ER Photography fit what we wanted, especially after our beautiful engagement shoot. We got wonderfully natural photos capturing our day and Jo and John thought of everything – including a jacket so I didn’t get cold! Thank you so so much, we will definitely keep in contact to capture all our exciting moments in the future!
Wow, wow and more wow!!!! These guys are super talented, work so well together and made us feel so relaxed on our wedding day (even when i was unwell). We have only seen our sneak peak photographs so far but they are so amazing we know we will love the rest and can’t wait to see them. Do not question for a second booking them and do it before someone else does! You will not regret it!!! Absolutely awesome!!!!!xxx
These guys are unbelievable, if you’re looking for a wedding photographer, you don’t need to look any further! Jon and Jo are unbelievable photographers, unbelievable people and helped massively to create an unbelievable wedding day! From start to finish they were exceptional; taking command at the professional photos whilst becoming invisible to everyone during the day, yet still producing unreal photos of exactly what we wanted! Photographs showing the family fun and enjoyment of our wedding day.
We only got married a couple of days ago but the preview photos are amazing! They have really captured the natural fun and laughter of the day. We are both quite camera shy but Jo and John were fantastic and really made it easy for us blending into the background capturing our best shots in the moment. Nothing asked is too much effort and this shows in the photos we will treasure forever, highly recommend, very professional, couldn’t ask for more!
Jo + Jon really understood exactly what we needed for our day, they made the group pictures fun and kept control without being too forceful with our guests, the fun pictures we did were truly wonderful and our formal ones were full of laughter, a perfect portrayal of our day. From the moment we met, we felt totally at ease, laughing and chatting which helped us on the day in relaxing for our photographs. Fabulous Photographers who feel like friends.
We have only just got married so haven’t had the full wedding album back yet but we already know it’s going to be fantastic! Jo and Jon were amazing, snapping some amazing pictures and well hidden pretty much the whole time! Very creative in their art and very friendly! Bad weather wasn’t an issue, they used it to their advantage and the early results are already phenomenal! The pre-wedding shoot was amazing too with some awesome pictures we will always be able to look at fondly.
Can’t wait to see the final wedding pics! Thanks again guys!
Jo + Jon were absolutely amazing! How wonderful to have two photographers, one capturing posed photos and the other sneakily taking natural, fun ones when you’re not looking! These guys made us feel so relaxed on our wedding day (plus we booked them for an extra shoot since they were so brilliant) and captured the most stunning snaps which they edited and provided to us quickly in both colour and black and white. We can’t rate these guys highly enough!
Jo + Jon were outstanding. So cool, calm, professional, kind and helpful. They made our day so enjoyable and perfect with their style and expertise. Nothing was too much trouble, their prep work was excellent, which helped the day run smoothly. So pleased they went with the flow, didn’t rush us and allowed the day to be organic and followed the flow beautifully, capturing lovely moments with ease. Jo is excellent at multitasking, so thoughtful and it was obvious she had done it a million times before. Jon was so thorough and easy going, such a delight. They are both gorgeous people, a pleasure to have by your side on the best day of your life. We loved having you.
Jo + Jon stepped in at the last minute to be our photographers after our photographer had been in an accident. Now, this should have been every Bride’s worst nightmare, but this wasn’t the case with Jo + Jon. Not only are they both incredible photographers but they are the nicest people and they put me and my bridal party at ease straight away. Their laid back style complimented our day perfectly. Even before we saw the pictures the guests were commenting on how good the photographers were and when we saw the pictures we couldn’t have been happier, they have literally blown us away. I would most definitely recommend Jo + Jon, our day was perfect from start to finish and if you want the same then Jo + John are a must.
We don’t know where to start with reviewing ER photography! Jo and Jon are absolutely amazing at what they do and we were so lucky to have been passed on their details by some good friends of ours. From the moment we met them we knew there was no one else we would want for our big day. We loved every second of working with them. Jo and Jon have captured our wedding day beautifully, with stunning shots. A lot of our guests commented on how they just slotted into our day. Thank you both millions.
From the second we got engaged, we knew we wanted ER photography to photograph our wedding.John and Jo are simply the best, most professional wedding photographers around. They redefine the term ‘going the extra mile’. Wherever there was a photo opportunity, they were there. The day after our wedding, we received our preview images which are simply stunning, how they managed this in under 24 hours is baffling. Such quality in every shot. We can’t wait to see all of our wedding pictures, we’re just so happy ER Photography we’re available and able to photograph the happiest day of our lives. You guys rock!
7 long years ago ER photography photographed my 18th birthday party, they were so professional and the photos were fantastic so I knew I would have to use them on my wedding day! They were so thorough from official photos to candid shots, and we’ve only seen the sneak peek so far. They caught some of the best moments and we were in tears looking at the original few. They kept us up to date at every point and ask for all the information I wouldn’t of even thought of. They helped create a stress free, calm and fun environment. Jon and jo are wonderful people and a delight to be around on your wedding day, even helping out with things in the girls room and fitting the men’s button holes. Thank you for being so wonderful and any future events we will definitely recommend and use you again! Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos! Love Craig and Elli Scott x
I honestly cannot fault anything, From the first meeting, fulfilling our request for a yellow smoke bomb (to bring my late dad into our day – I’m very grateful) and on the day you both were outstanding and professional yet felt like you were just part of our day so flawlessly. Jo even helped me with my veil hiccup! Nothing was too much, even our guests were impressed!! We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful photos which we will have for a lifetime to look back on. I have no hesitation in recommending you guys and if I ever need photographers in the future you will be my first go to! Both lovely people who are very talented. We’re so pleased we picked you- a mahoosive thank you from us both.
Omg could not have asked for better photographers. We love our pics so much the photo montage dvd/cd is so special we cannot stop watching it brings a tear every time love it. The photos are so natural and totally captured the day could not have asked for more you guys are the best. Thanks so much. Julie + Mike Wood xxxx
Oh my god, where do I start. These guys are absolutely phenomenal and I cannot begin to recommend them highly enough! Thank you so, so much for helping to make our day extra special. You're amazing! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you and you both went above and beyond. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Absolutely outstanding! Words cannot express how pleased we are with everything Jon and Jo did for us with regards to our wedding photography. From the first meeting right through to delivery of the photos everything was brilliant, fun, laid back, friendly and professional. We couldn't have asked for better photographers to capture our special day.
These guys were fab at creating some wonderful, fun pictures for us to remember our day. We loved the sneak peek the next day and prompt delivery of our photos - we had them back within 3 weeks. Jon and Jo literally went above and beyond - sitting in damp grass or climbing on roof tops!! - to get perfect photo, herding guests and working around our videography team with ease, skill and professionalism.
Couldn't recommend this pair highly enough and will definitely be using for our anniversary shoot! Thanks guys, you're the best!!
Since meeting Jo and John at a friends wedding a couple of years ago we knew we wanted them to be our wedding photographer. They have been absolutely fab from the beginning and really understood our personalities and what sort of photos we wanted from the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
They were both really helpful on the day but also just blended into the background. Many of our guests commented on how friendly they were and many of the best photos were ones we didn't even realise they had taken.
We have only seen a snapshot of the photos so far via the blog but really excited to see the rest.
Thanks for everything!! Chantel & Tom x
I have only had a sneak preview of my photos and can already give Jo and John a 5 star review! They were a pleasure to have with us all day and kept everything moving so smoothly for us! The photos I have seen so far are stunning and Jo and John helped us with everything through the day from putting my
dress on to entertaining our two year old. I can’t recommend them highly enough and I can’t wait to see the full photos!

Thank you so much for capturing all of those special moments on our wedding day. You guys really were amazing and we every single photo!

Our wedding day was made so special with the memories that have been captured from elbowroom. They treated us and our guests with respect and we hardly knew that they were there however we have 1137 memories that are truly special. Thank you for everything. We can strongly recommend to any bride and groom to be. Mr & Mrs Paul Elbowroom were the photographers for our wedding at Peckforton Castle and I could not fault a single thing. We hardly even knew they were there on the day which is a testament to the teams professionalism and pre-planning. The pre-wedding shoot was a fantastic bonus and I can\'t thank them enough for capturing our special day so perfectly, so many times! We now have many memories to treasure for a lifetime.
