Creative Wedding Photographer covering the whole of the UK and Europe //  Offering a modern and personal approach to wedding photography.

Hello! I’m Steven, a creative and modern documentary Liverpool wedding photographer. I love to travel and photograph weddings all over the UK and Europe. You’ll see from my blog that I work anywhere and everywhere.  If you’re looking for a creative photographer offering natural, relaxed and fun images from your wedding then you’ve come to the right place. My approach is mostly journalistic but I love to be creative. Nothing cheesy, nothing too traditional, nothing boring.  just good photography telling the story and capturing the fun and emotion of your day from start to finish. I also run training and mentoring for new and aspiring wedding photographers. You can see my courses on my Workshop page.

I’m a photographer, a creative and an all round nice chap. And I realise that planning a wedding is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’ve been in this industry for over ten years and have many accolades for my work. Amongst other things, I was listed in the top 10 photographers in the world 2016 by Fearless Photographers.

So if you’re planning to get married and like the idea of documentary wedding photography with a creative twist, please get in touch for more information and I’d be happy to meet you for a coffee, beer or a hot chocolate if it’s really cold!

A Creative Documentary Approach

Check out my blog to see what I do, but in a nutshell my style is modern, fun and creative, concentrating on the emotion of the day. Most of my work is documentary photography which means that I’ll get on with shooting the wedding whilst you just get married and have a great time! I love to have the opportunity to create some unique portraits for you, these are shot in the same creative and informal style as I cover the rest of the wedding.

 UK and Destination Weddings

I’ve documented weddings across England and travelled abroad for my work. I love shooting different types of nuptials such as humanist ceremonies, same-sex marriages and celebrations from any religion or culture. I’m always excited to meet new people and experience new things. I’m not just a Liverpool Wedding Photographer, I travel for weddings all the time. This year I’ve shot in 3 different countries as well as 12 different English counties. All expenses are included in the price.

Liverpool Wedding Photographer

Liverpool provides a beautiful and varied backdrop for photography. The architecture and culture of this Merseyside City has a lot to offer. There’s an increasing umber of new, trendy and fashionable venues for newly engaged couples looking for something modern and different. From the Beatles to the Cathedrals to the rich social and cultural history, Liverpool is full of life and artistic flare. Whilst I’m based in the north west, I work right across the UK and abroad as you will see from my blog.

Why book me to photograph your big day?

Experience. I’ve been a wedding photographer for over 11 years. In that time I’ve photographed a whole range of weddings in too many places to mention. I’m confident that I can deal well with anything a wedding day can throw at me.
Vision. I have a clear style and idea of the things I want to capture. These are based around the story and emotion of the day. My photography and editing style is consistent so you have a very good idea of the kind of images you’re going to get if you book me. I love creative, natural and modern imagery, symmetry, interesting angles and most of all real moments.
Lighting Expertise. I bring my own lighting equipment to each wedding so that I can confidently create high quality images whatever the available light. I also use additional lighting for special effects in my portraits.
I’m a Ninja. Whilst I’ll take charge of some parts of the day such as the portraits and group photos, the rest of the coverage is journalistic in style. I spend a lot of time watching and anticipating moments in order to create images that have emotion and meaning. So for the most part you’ll be able to get on with having a great time without any interruption from me!
