North West & Yorkshire Documentary Wedding Photographer
You’re probably overwhelmed with all the wedding information out there, right? Don’t worry you’re not alone. I’m here to help – photography is my main forte.
I’m Niall – a wedding, couples and lifestyle photographer. Being Yorkshire & North West based I’m surrounded with some super gorgeous venues but I’m also very lucky to be able to travel around the country and overseas too.
I practice the art capturing people who just love each other and it’s as simple as that! I love to capture portraits that are fun, intuitive and honest. Photography should reflect the moment and the feelings you had right at that very point. The value of it is precious and it should transport you right back to that time in years to come. If you’re looking for a photographer who doesn’t do cheesy awkward moments but does just capture the beauty, the love and everything in between, then I’m your guy!
I cover weddings all across the United Kingdom and internationally too – jut tell me when and where, and I’ll be there! I offer wedding packages that suit your day; available features and options include a second photographer, stop motion film, password-protected online gallery, a beautiful presentation box, and a selection of fine albums and prints. Whatever your needs, I want you to have a collection that you will love, one that, in the years to come, will enable you to recall every magical moment of your incredible day.
How would you describe your style?
My style is relaxed, creative and fun. I photograph mainly in a storytelling fly on the wall documentary style, and mix it up with a few creative shots for a photo gallery that is completely unique to you and your wedding.
What do you love about weddings?
Weddings are about emotions for me. From the morning when you feel a mixture of nervousness and excitement, to the tension that you feel as you stand at the bottom of the aisle, to the elation you feel as you become husband and wife, to the hilarious speeches and the manic dancing late at night, that's what I love to capture. I love the little tears that run down the groom's face, or the wink in the dad's eye as he hands his daughter over, to the pride in their mums' eyes as they see their children take the next step in life. I also love the stolen moments between a couple, when everyone is busy chatting and they seem to be in a little bubble, intimately untouchable by anyone else for a few quick moments. This is what I point my lens at and what my clients love to see in my photos
Advice for couples planning their wedding?
Great and good photographers book up early, often years in advance. I'm sure you've found this with venues too. The good ones go quickly and early. After you have your venue booked in, find the best photographer your money can buy. Everything else will be consumed on the day, be worn once or gather dust on your shelf afterwards, but your photos will stand the test of time and will tell your story to your kiddies and their kiddies. They are your memories, and your most treasured possession from your big day.
Also, let them come alive in a wedding stop motion film. Although most wedding photographers will provide your photos in a gallery or on a USB, only a select few offer a service to bring the day alive once again in a time ordered stop motion film.
Your Travel policy?
I cover weddings all across the UK and abroad. Within mainland UK travel and petrol are included. A small overnight fee might apply depending on location. Destination weddings add travel expenses and a plate of food. OK and a glass of wine.
