Modern Documentary Wedding Photography based in Manchester
Hi, I'm Stephen, one half of a professional Manchester wedding photographer team covering weddings throughout the North West, around the UK and also as international destination wedding photographers.
We combine documentary style wedding photography with a modern creative twist. Working quietly in the background on your wedding day, you would never know we are there - documenting every little detail and memory on your day.
During the day we will put together a short session to produce some awesome modern couple portraits. Our photography style is ideal for couples who are looking for relaxed, natural photographs but would also like portraits that have a modern twist. Have a look around the website and learn more about Stephen McGowan
Being a 'his and her' wedding photography team, we are able to offer two wedding photographer packages: a single photographer (Stephen) or double photography package with myself and my partner Emma. Emma works in the same way I do at weddings - in a completely unobtrusive manner but completely fun to have around!. We both work closely with you throughout the build-up to your big day, making sure we fully understand exactly what you want to get out of your wedding photography. On your wedding day we both work in the same style and manner, but having a second shooter on the day allows for a second perspective such as both bride and groom preparation at two different locations, shots from both the front and back of the ceremony room or church. It also allows for those added extra moments to be documented on the day: more tears, laughs and expressions all timelessly captured.
All of the images captured on the day are edited and finished in our unique editing style so that you can benefit from the full Stephen McGowan photography experience.
If you're looking for a double photographer package, why not drop us a message?
The Look Book is a great way of viewing our photography style and getting an idea of what we're all about.
A fusion of reportage, documentary, creative, fine art and alternative photography means we're always looking to push the boundaries with our wedding photography. We enjoy being creative with our portraits giving modern twists on timeless styles.

As part of our wedding photography packages you will also receive a professional slideshow of your day played out to music. This gives you the ideal opportunity to invite your family and friends round for drinks and food before reliving your wedding day all over again through your TV, PC, phone or tablet. Each wedding slideshow DVD is put together using the high quality images taken from your day played out to music which is meaningful to the two of you. If you'd like to see more of our videos, visit our Video Gallery page or visit our YouTube Channel.
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!!!

"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 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!
“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!)

“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.
