Intimate weddings

Discounts are offered for smaller, more intimate weddings, especially those held during the week or out of the normal wedding season. For a quote please get in touch.

 

Engagement shoots

All my couples receive a complementary engagement shoot, at a location of your choice. Perhaps a trip down memory lane, to where you first met? Or first kissed? This is available at any time between booking and your wedding date, with many choosing to save it until nearer the time so as to use it to prepare them for the camera! You’ll receive both high resolution photographs for unlimited printing and a pre-prepared low resolution set, ready for social media.

 

If you’ve decided against having a photographer on your wedding day but would still like to have an engagement shoot, that is no problem at all and available as above from just £145.

 

NEW for 2014: 360° wedding photography 

If you’ve been to any major sporting event in the last year or so, there’s a chance you’ll have been caught on a 360°, interactive picture which invites you tag yourself in so friends and family can share the event. Now, I can bring this same technology to your wedding adding a creative new way to show off your big day to all.. this has been especially welcomed by those with friends and family who cannot be with you at your wedding, allowing them to immerse themselves in the energy of the day. So everyone gather round, strike a pose and hold it steady! Available from £145, and in two timeslots – afternoon and evening, giving you twice the opportunity to have this unique photographic way of remembering your wedding day!
 

Creative hen & stag party ideas 

I’d love to be involved with your big day long before it comes around, and offer hen and stag ideas to give your party that creative little extra.

Questions

Answers to a few commonly asked questions..


Q. We see that you’re based near the Lake District, how far can you travel?
A. Travelling is something I love to do, especially when it comes to exploring new places! Prices listed above include travel within the north west. For those further afield I’ll always look at minimising travelling costs, drop me an email or call and I’ll see what I can do.


Q. We love the storybook style of album, can you do this for us? Could we see an example?
A. Sure! Click here to see an example from a previous album.


Q. What payment methods do you accept? Can we break up our payments into manageable chunks?
A. I’m happy to accept cash, cheque, bank transfers and can take card payments through the PayPal system (no requirement for you to register). Soon I will also accept the new ‘Paym’ method, via your mobile phone. Please contact me to discuss options for paying in installments.

About me

Hi! It's nice to meet you...

Hello! I am Philip, a full time photographer. I’d love to capture your special day – each and every cherished moment in a timeless, yet contemporary reportage style. From my home city of Manchester, I have worked with couples across the UK from Liverpool to London, South Wales to Suffolk and Cheshire to Cumbria.

 

I recently moved to the countryside, now calling Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria, home. The delightful village is quite a change of scenery from the big city and offers distinctly different wedding photography opportunities! Only being a short hop from the Lake District, I’m looking forward to getting my walking boots on and discovering what England’s mountainous county has in store for me.

Contact

It'd be great to have you over for tea and cake if you'd like to discuss your wedding photography further, and see our sample products. Say hello, and we can save a date!
