Tim EmmertonWedding PhotographerLancashire, Manchester, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, UK, Worldwide

Welcome


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 shooting weddings as I was when I started.

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 with 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 their 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. It’s all a massive part of who you are 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 and 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 that 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. 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 that weaves throughout the day and it all comes together afterwards 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 and mean you’re not hanging around on the day.


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 feel uncomfortable.

I gauge my approach to each and every moment of the day, there are 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


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, all you need to do is just sit back and enjoy.

As your wedding photographer, of course I’ll be delivering all your digital images, but I’ll then curate them into an HD photo movie, which follows the narrative of your wedding story and brings your images to life!


Wedding Albums


I have two fabulous album makers, one based right here in the UK and also Queensberry from New Zealand. Both feature timeless covers, amazing papers and are the perfect way to enjoy your wedding photos.

In years to come, when you get your wedding album out for your kids or grandkids, it wont just bring back loads of amazing memories but  and how it’s also technology proofed way to view your photos.


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 and slideshow, you won’t need to worry about a thing!


What’s next


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.
