Lake District wedding photography, natural pictures, no fuss.


Hi, I’m Steve. I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in the Lake District, shooting weddings that tell the story of your day and show off the stunning landscape you chose to marry in.

Describing one’s “style” is not easy. There are a lot of overused labels among wedding photographers these days; documentary, natural, candid, creative etc etc. and very often the work does not reflect the label. If you are here, I am assuming you are looking for a photographer, probably in the Lake District, so I have filled this site with a few thousand photographs, and big ones at that. My lake district wedding photography is observational & documentary throughout the day, with a splash of creative, landscape based portraiture.

The wedding photography portfolios alone have over 500 images. If you spend some time browsing them, preferably with a glass of wine, you will soon get a feel for my style. I have split them into the two types of images I am known for. The reportage galleries are the core of what and how I shoot, anyone booking me as their wedding photographer will get work like this. The “creative” galleries are an optional choice of yours. Essentially they are Lake District landscape images with wedding couples in them. Many of my clients love the Lake District and love images like this for their album and wall. These images are always shot on the wedding day, either around the venue or a short hop in my car to a suitable spot I know, so allow up to an hour for this in your timings.

I am a visual storyteller. I would feel privileged to capture and retell the story of your day. I shoot with a finished album in mind, as I do believe this is the best way to keep, share and treasure your memories for a lifetime. Even if you are just having the digital files, in my head I am still shooting to put a story together in a book.

Weddings are one of the major, pivotal family milestones. They bring everyone together and reaffirm family bonds and lifelong friendships. My job as your wedding photographer is to capture these moments, the joy and the emotions throughout the day, unobtrusively, but beautifully. I will be there, in the background, quietly working away, but available at any time should you need me for anything, even if it’s just advice or help to make your day run smoothly from my 700+ wedding career.

I want you to enjoy your wedding with your family and friends, not spend it posing for endless group shots, so family groups and formals are done in about 20 mins, simply and without fuss, by sticking to immediate family and the wedding party, or they can be eliminated entirely if you prefer.
