Thanks so much for dropping by, I’m Tim, a wedding photographer based in Lancashire. Which is right next door to Manchester, the Lake District (Cumbria) and Cheshire, but travel all over the UK and abroad.
I’m a story teller, an image maker, and dedicated wedding camera guy. I shot my first wedding in 2009 and a few years on, a couple of awards and over 400 weddings later, I’m still just as hooked by how amazing my job is.
Please, have a good look around at the testimonials, galleries, blog and info, I’d love to hear about your plans! But first things first!

Choosing a Wedding Photographer
Choosing the right photographer can be a bit of a daunting task. There’s so many to choose from and so many different styles, standards and looks it can be somewhat mind boggling; So below you’ll find out, in a nutshell how I approach everything!
When choosing a wedding photographer most people tend to want a candid, journalistic approach to your wedding day story. With some amazing, natural images of the two of you and perhaps some group photos as well.
If so, I’m your man!
It’s all about you two!
You guys, your chemistry, your friends and family. They’re all a massive part of your lives and will be with you on the biggest day of your lives so far. A good photographer will capture the moments and a great photographer will capture the essence and spirit of the day so you can relive it for years to come.
A little bit about me
After shooting over 400 weddings it seems a bit odd writing how it all came about but quite simply myself and my wifes wedding photos we’re awful! We got literally a few that were ok.
That was in 2007. I remember looking at our pics thinking “I could do better and people deserve better”.
In 2009, I started my photographic career. By 2010, I was in a position to go full time and now every time I pick up a camera I aim to break the boundaries of photography to be better at each and every wedding. I’ve been fortunate to be named “Artist of the Year” by LLF.com and “Best of the Best” by the Wedding Photographer Society but you won’t see loads of logos slapped all over the site, all the matters is my couples are happy. That’s why you’ll see their words on the testimonials page and in the slideshow above.
I invest heavily in my own re-training, it’s important to keep challenging myself and I teach and mentor other photographers … as well as being chosen by them to shoot their weddings which is both daunting and flattering at the same time. But despite all of this, it’s never made me forget my roots and why I do this:
“People deserve better”.
What to expect
I follow your wedding story as it progresses, there’s a genuine narrative there and it all comes together at the end in an amazing slideshow.
My only agenda, with the exception of capturing an awesome and creative photographic story of your wedding, is that you have the best day of your lives.
You might also want some groups too and thats great! I’ve got a nifty system for doing these and will guide you through the whole process.
Keeping It Real
I’m passionate about my style of imagery, it’s progressive, bold and modern.
I do however avoid “Cheese”. I’ll never make cringeworthy photos of you and I’ll also never ask you to do something that would make you or I feel uncomfortable.
I gauge my approach to each and every moment of the day, theres times to stand back and document from afar and moments to get right in the thick of it and be part of the party.
Elements of the Image
Light // Moment // Composition // Location
Stunning images don’t just happen. There’s a combination of factors that make them great and these are just a few factors that play a part in it.
I’m constantly looking for inspiration to find new and exciting ways to capture moments as the day unfolds.
Although the story of your wedding day is the heart of the narrative, along the way opportunities arise such as landscapes, light or clever framing. I love to take a moment to harness this and create something you can treasure forever.
Slideshows, for me are a huge part of improving the enjoyment of the finished product.
Thats why include them with every wedding. Its the absolute best way to first view your photos, just sit back and enjoy.
I’ll take your images and then curate them into an HD photo movie, which follows the narrative of your wedding story and brings your images to life!
I have two fabulous album makers one based right here in the UK and Queensberry from New Zealand.
Both feature timeless covers, amazing papers and are the perfect way to enjoy your wedding photos. In 50 years who knows if you’re kids or grandkids will ever see their pics and album has huge sentimental value and is a really accessible way to view your photos.
The album thats included in the package is the one that over the year most people opt for but don’t worry, you can upgrade it however you like!
Keeping Things Simple
I’ve always worked to an ethos that things should be simple. The same goes for choosing me to be your photographer and everything thats involved with that.
Every step of the way, every base is covered, meaning you don’t have to worry about a thing.
From easy online booking, right until you receive your album and/or images, you won’t need to worry about a thing!
It would be great to have a good chat to learn more about your big day. Choosing your wedding photographer is really important. I’m not into a hard sell, what matters is that, whoever you pick they’re a great fit for you!
There’s a few ways for us to have our first catch up. Skype and FaceTime are great or if you’re local to Chorley it would be fab to invite you over.
Getting booked in is simple and all done online.
