Stockport Wedding Photographer
Covering Cheshire, Manchester and the North West
I’m Barry, a Stockport wedding photographer, I love photographing the hustle and bustle of this busy town. As a result I regularly shoot weddings at venues such as The Plaza and Stockport Town Hall. I was voted ‘Best Cheshire Wedding Photographer 2016’ in the AI Business Excellence Awards.
My take on wedding photography is very relaxed and non-intrusive, capturing unique moments as they happen without intruding on you and your guests. You’ll see this type of photography described as documentary or candid. I’m not sure what name I’d put on my style but I do know that the couples I work with love the results that we come up with; a beautiful set of wedding photographs to be proud of for the rest of your lives together.
Then throughout the wedding day, I’ll continue to work in this way. During the wedding speeches or guests mingling during the drinks reception, documentary coverage is the best way of telling the story of your special day, and being able to capture everybody’s personalities in the photos.
I’m fully insured and with a huge amount of experience. By hiring a professional to take your wedding photos, you don’t have to worry about the weather. Based in this part of the country, that’s probably a good thing as you never know what good old North West will throw at us. Winter wedding photography is a speciality, the shorter days means we can take advantage of the stunning early sunsets.
What if it Rains?
Well this is Stockport, so it’s either going to rain hard, drizzle or if you’re very lucky, spit! Seriously though, my approach as a professional wedding photographer is to work with what you have. If it’s blue skies and sun this can bring it’s own challenges as it’s a not good look to have people squinting. If it decides to rain, then we have to be prepared. I bring along a selection of umbrellas and my camera kit is waterproof.
The Wedding Party
The evening recption is where you and your guests can really let your hair down. Most couples book me until the first dance and I’m happy to stay on a little bit longer to capture the dance floor action. If you’d like me stay on then just let me know and I’m sure we can work something out.
Wedding Packages & Prices
I’m usually asked to photograph the full day, from the bridal preparations in the morning until the first dance and the start of the party. I do get asked to provide shorter coverage, and am happy to do so. If you’d like shorter coverage, just get in touch by using the contact form or give me a call.
My prices range from £900 to £1150, with the most popular package being full day which includes full day photography from the Bridal/Groom preparations in the morning to the first dance in the evening, so you can be sure I’ll be there to capture everything.
Also included is an engagement photo shoot which is the perfect way to get used to the camera and have a practice run, ready for the big day. We won’t go overboard with the posing, but I will guide you both along on what looks good and what doesn’t. After all, everybody want’s to look their best in their wedding photos. More information can be found on my prices page.
What about Wedding Albums?
I offer a selection of wedding albums to suit all budgets. You can browse the selection in the wedding album page.
The range includes the ever popular Graphistudio wedding books with the photos printed on photographic paper and edge to edge printing and layflat pages. I also offer a cheaper option to Graphistudio but which is still lovely quality.
I do bring these wedding album samples to each consultation, so you’ll be able to see the quality for yourself, as well as this being able to look through complete wedding.
