Creative Wedding Photography

A fusion of reportage, documentary, creative, fine art and alternative photography means I'm always looking to push the boundaries with my wedding photography. I enjoy being creative with portraits giving modern twists on timeless styles of wedding photography.


Documenting your day is my number one love. The day will fly by and will be over before you know it. We feel that it is important to document your story - those laughs, smiles, kisses, holding hands, chatting guests, a little tipple, speeches (always amusing!) - with reportage photography all of this is captured throughout your day giving you timeless memories of those forgettable moments

Thank you so much Stephen and Emma, we couldn’t have asked for better photographers to be with us on the day, you really put us at ease and have captured memories we’ll cherish forever! Can’t stop looking at your pics, would definitely recommend!!!

We got married at Mottram Hall on 19 March 2016. Stephen was fantastic on the day along with Emma and the results have been brilliant. Especially the photo DVD he has put together which brought all the memories back of our great day. Thanks again Stephen and Emma

We cannot thank Stephen enough for the wonderful photographs taken of our wedding day on 24.10.15.

They perfectly capture the essence of our most special day. I can’t stop looking at them! The presentation of the photographs is also stunning, in a beautiful box, with some Hugh quality prints, the wooden memory stick and a DVD (which certainly set off the tears!)

Stephen was so professional and worked so hard all day, it was an absolute please to have him as part of our day, on both a personal and professional level. Stephen and Emma worked so hard.

I cannot recommend Stephen and his services enough! From the pre-wedding shoot in Chester to our big day, Stephen was easy to contact, flexible and understood what we wanted from our wedding photography, moment capturing pictures. It brings back all of our feelings and emotions from each stage of the day, what more could you ask for!
Once again, we cannot thank you enough, Stephen, for your hard work and commitment to our photographs.
They are so wonderful and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives. We hope we have occasion to work with you again in the future.

Thank you for being such a huge part of our wedding day.

Laura and Adam

We can not thank you enough for capturing the memories of our day. From start to finish you went above and beyond for us and it really shows in the quality of your photos and we love our presentation box too!

The photographer to me has the hardest job at a wedding, of capturing all those little moments that allow us brides to remember for a lifetime our dream day and we can not fault you, as i will have mine forever either framed or in an album to look back on. Thank you for all that you done for us, its been a pleasure!

Angela and Carl

We would like to say a massive thank you for our amazing wedding photographs. We felt at ease from the moment we first discussed the images and content and we knew we were in good hands. There are enough things to worry about when planning a wedding, and to know that this wasn’t one of them was priceless.

You managed to capture the essence of the day – the atmosphere, the joy, the love and laughter (especially the best man speech) and all the special moments that made it such a fantastic day. Our photographs are so natural and not staged, you managed to capture everything so naturally. You were discreet and a pleasure to have around all day. We highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a photographer for their special day.

We will treasure ours forever.

Thank you again from Angela and Carl x x.
