“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” Ansel Adams
We are Jim and Carolyn, professional wedding photographers. Living in North Manchester, we work mainly with couples in Lancashire and Cheshire, but happily travel further afield and abroad. We’ve known each other for more than twenty years and worked together for six.
We first met through rock climbing – it has taken us to some pretty amazing places, fostering a love of landscapes that carries into our wedding photography. We love scene-setting shots with strong composition, and those “golden hours” of light early in the morning or late afternoon, when the lower sun gives a colour palette of subtle hues.
We watch way too many movies, and get inspired by those cinematographers who paint with light, using it to sculpt character and evoke emotion. But we also love offbeat humour, and nothing beats a good cry from time-to time!
We’re not the youngest kids on the block, but our experience of love, life and photography means we can cope with the pressures of a wedding day and still be relaxed. We’re pretty fun to be with and can deal with people from all walks of life, without being bossy or frantic. We know how to connect with people and help them feel at ease, and enjoy the fun of families coming together.
We could talk for hours about what makes us tick as photographers – but probably you want to know whether our style of photography would fit you and your wedding. Have a look at our portfolio, and visit our blog to learn how we were able to work with other couples.[symple_testimonial by=””]“Wow – what a day! Thank you so much for everything you did yesterday.
