Award Winning Wedding Photographer

Wedding Photographer Manchester

Thank you for checking out my website and congratulations on your engagement. Exciting times ahead!

Hello! My name’s Nik. I’m a Manchester wedding photographer living in Bolton capturing special moments in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside, though I’m more than happy to go wherever a wedding takes me! I Love traveling and visiting new venues up and down the country.

Documentary Style Photography

Natural, narrative images of your wedding. These occur when I become your eyes for the day, fading into the background and observing your guests enjoying your big day.

Relaxed and friendly

I find that one of the best things I hear people say is about how relaxed and friendly I am and how easy and comfortable it makes them in front of a camera, resulting in great natural images.

Telling your story

I get to be part of the greatest party and celebration between two people in love. Getting to hang out with happy people and documenting it all for those people to keep forever IS THE BEST JOB (If you can call it a job!)

Wedding Portraits

When it comes to the couples’ portraits these normally take about an hour but I break it up into little pockets throughout the day so you don’t miss that quality time with your guests. Also by doing this we get different light and a different feel to each set of images.

At some point during the day we will take a little time to create a signature image. This could be a creatively lit night time portrait in the evening or something big and epic as the sun sets. On the day I will specifically look for something eye catching, cool and different.

Telling your story Your Way

For the majority of the day Myself (and My second photographer should you book one) will work in a very documentary style floating around, blending in and just capturing moments as they happen to keep everyone at ease.

We will mingle and interact with friends and family which keeps everyone at ease. Be warned: we do get quite close just so when you look back over your images you get the feeling of being in the moment again. I haven’t been told off for it yet!

Documentary Wedding Photography

Documentary Wedding photography is best described as telling stories through images. Your wedding is a new chapter in your story.

My role is to document it as it happens. The hidden moments that you would never be able to see all of.  These images show intimate moments, laughter, tears, joy – They have sentiment and above all, love. I’m there from the start as you get ready with friends, through to the end, when the party can provide images you never dreamed of.

Questions Wedding Photographers are always asked

If you are reading this it is more than likely you are looking to book a wedding photographer. My aim is to make it as enjoyable, and simple, as possible for you so you get to enjoy your big day. Here are my answers to some questions you may have.

Manchester Town Hall Wedding

Can we meet before we book?

YES! Of course we can meet before you book. It’s always good to sit down together, grab a drink and discuss all your plans for your big day. The only thing better than sitting down talking weddings with an excited couple, is photographing your big day!

Do You Travel?

I am more than happy to travel to your location whether in the UK or abroad. For full day weddings travel within England, Scotland and Wales is covered at no extra cost. For weddings in Ireland and abroad just ask for a bespoke quote.

Do you shoot weddings abroad?

Yes I do!! Just ask me for a bespoke quote for your day. Prices don’t vary that much from a normal UK wedding, its normally just an addition of flights and accommodation.

Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

Do you do formal group shots?

Yes, we will always do group shots. We know this might be one of the few times you have all your nearest and dearest around you. We try to keep these to between 8 and 10 groups so it doesn’t take too much time out of your day keep you away from your guests for too long. We work to a pre-arranged list and have an usher to help round up people to avoid delay.

What if I don’t like my photograph being taken?

This is completely normal. I’m not a fan of it either! I try to keep you relaxed at all times as I feel this will capture the most natural images and gets the best photographs. I will always be there to guide and help you so nothing looks forced and is always fun and enjoyable.

Bridal Preparation Photo

Does all day coverage mean all day?

In a word, YES. I arrive at the bridal prep address at a time agreed with yourselves and stay all day until just after your first dance. There are no time limitations (within reason). I am yours all day. My second shooter will arrive when you require them to and normally leave as your evening guests arrive.

How will we receive our images?

All your edited images are supplied to you in an online gallery 8-10 weeks after your wedding. These images are yours and you can print them whenever and wherever you wish, as many times as you like. You will also have access to an online gallery which can be shared with friends and family and which will have options for purchasing prints through this too if you so wish.

Do we need to pay a booking fee?

A Booking fee of £400 is taken at the point of booking to secure your date. This is taken off the final balance of the wedding.

The final payment is due on the first of the month before your wedding. So if you are getting married on 16th August, you would pay the final payment on the 1st of July. A reminder will be sent a month before.

Do we need to feed you?

My parents asked me this which i took as a hint to move out 🙂 Joking apart, providing food isn’t a requirement but after non-stop work it certainly won’t be turned down! Just let me know in advance so I know whether to bring food along on the day.

Please take 2 minutes to watch the years round up of the best images from all my weddings of the year.
