Beautiful Photography from Stephen McGowan
Modern, creative and timeless photography. Stephen & Emma are a photographer team traveling worldwide to document weddings. Multi-award winning photography; Top 100 Wedding Photographers 2016 & 2017 YPWP. Regional & National Finalists at The Wedding Industry Awards 2017.
A fusion of reportage, documentary, creative, fine art and alternative photography means we're always looking to push the boundaries with our wedding photography. We enjoy being creative with our portraits giving modern twists on timeless styles.
What's not to love!? we love spending days with couples getting married - the entire day is about the two of them and to give them the best experience possible for them to then relive the day over and over again through their photographs. We absolutely love being a part of the day and capture all the little memories which may be missed by the couple on the day - but have been captured by us for them to look back on time and time again.
Find a style that suits you both as a couple. We love being creative, however 90% of our time is spent documenting the day as naturally as possible. We combine documentary with creativity and only lightly direct our portraits - most of our shots are spontaneous and 'as it happens' which is all down to our couples - we're just there to help things along. Portrait sessions only take 10-15 minutes as we don't like to intrude on your day (we're happier being in the background documenting the day as it happens). We also wouldn't worry about shooting at a venue that is new to us. All good photographers can get the best pictures at any venue. Photographers love the challenge of new backdrops and features at a new venue and we are no different! Have a good look at your photographer's portfolio of weddings and make sure you look at a large variety of images from each wedding to ensure that he/she has a consistently good quality of work throughout a wedding day. Regarding travelling abroad: If you are having your wedding abroad, it isn't as expensive as you would imagine to combine with one of our packages. We have been lucky enough to have photographed abroad in Portugal and Spain and both love travelling. Simple, secure accommodation for a couple of nights is all we'll need for your wedding. If you're having a midweek wedding abroad we can even offer a discount too.

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.
