Welcome! We are Jim and Carolyn Whitham, experienced Manchester wedding photographers. Our passion is artistic documentary photography and fine art wedding albums.
Weddings are amazing celebrations of love, laughter, and new families. No two are the same; you’ll bring your own special character to the day – and that’s what we love to photograph. We don’t snap thousands of random photos, but look for images that capture the unique essence of your day and your personalities.
That means being part of your day without dominating it. Sometimes we’ll feel like a friend, sometimes a piece of the background and sometimes a professional, lightly directing – but we are never paparazzi with long zoom lenses. We shoot with small, discreet Leica cameras – you and your guests relax and enjoy the fun, whilst we capture creative images that feel intimate and real.
We believe in printed photographs as a permanent visual legacy. Photographs carefully placed to tell a story, and beautifully printed in albums of the highest quality are at the heart of what we do.
We work mainly with couples in Manchester, Cheshire, the Wirral and Lancashire but we love to travel and have photographed weddings in the Lake District, Wales and the south of France. Do have a look at our portfolio and our blog to see whether we are the right photographers for you.
