Alternative, Creative and Passionate Reportage Wedding Photography
Hello! I’m Tim.
I specialise in alternative, creative and elegant Reportage Wedding Photography. I love shooting weddings and love photography –
Great pride is taken in capturing those special, once in a lifetime moments for you to cherish, but of course I do this in my own unique and innovative way, turning real life moments in to captured pieces of art.
My style is fresh and always evolving to new original and fun ways to document your wedding. I am fully qualified with years of experience in the bag.
Because of my creative working style,I 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! I’ve has been practicing professional photography for over 20 years now and has studied the practice from a young age.
I am based on the Yorkshire/Lancashire/Cheshire borders in Saddleworth, handily close to Manchester but I do travel the full length of the UK and beyond to shoot weddings
I am 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!
Price wise I am at the average for wedding photography but Id like to think you are getting one of the country top wedding photographers for that money.
How would you describe your style?
My approach on the day is informal, I like to act like a guest, that way I can get right into the action without people being conscious of us. I always have a good look round the venue and the surrounding area before the wedding. My aim is to produce natural, reportage style images with a creative edge. I get my inspirations and influences from all over the place- Fashion, Film, Art, Music etc, so I'm not just reproducing someone else's work at weddings, I try my very best to be original!
I 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 me for reference. Its not long so I have to be well prepared.
I see the wedding photography process very much as a collaboration, so I always find out what kind of images you like so I 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 my and your personalities! I think one of my skills is working with people within their 'comfort zone', so not asking anyone to do anything they are not comfortable with. Some people love to pose and some people hate it, its just a case of, using my experience, finding the right style to suit you.
What do you love about weddings?
I love the fact that I am producing something that will last for many generations. My albums and images will mean so much to people that haven’t even been born yet, & I 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.
If you have a funky and different styled wedding, something like festival style, scooters, bikes, tattoos, punk rock. Anything different I will offer you a discount as Id love to be involved.
Advice for couples planning their wedding?
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 I want you to book me, and I'm not not ‘cheap’ but I'm not expensive either. However your photography is so so important and I believe that I can give you the best images. In fact, I am so confident that we can provide you with amazing images if you invest in me that I offer a 100% Money back guarantee! Meaning that, if when you get your photos back from me, if you hate them and they are not as I have 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.
