There are so many different things to consider when choosing your North West wedding photographer. No two photographers will have the same approach and all will offer their own unique service and style. Some will adopt a photojournalistic or reportage documentary approach for most of your day, so you can look back and remember just how incredible your day actually was in addition to the more traditional couples, bridesmaids and family group shots.
A good wedding photographer will be unobtrusive and will capture the day in a relaxed and informal way from the 'getting ready' stage right through to the first dance and well into the evening.
You want to remember your wedding day forever so it's worth choosing a photographer you are comfortable with and will record your day in the best possible way.
Here’s some great wedding photographers based in the North West from places like Manchester, Preston, Lancashire and the Lake District, whom you might want to get in touch with...

When photographing at night, flash photography is often used to illuminate the subject. There is, of course, more than one way to do this. One option can be to use an off-camera flash to backlight the bride and groom to create a silhouette shot. Flash can also be used in darker conditions to create stunning high contrast photographs. Remember to look at what ambient lighting your venue has. Signs and outside lighting can make for some striking and memorable images.... read more

Lots of photographers will say that they are a fantastic way for you to get to know your supplier before the big day. Pre-wedding shoots can be a great introduction to working together as the last thing you want is someone you've barely met popping a camera in your face on your wedding day. The majority of people find having their picture taken a less-than-natural experience, and one of my aims with a pre-shoot is for you to be at ease and to see me as a friend with a camera rather than paparazzi.... read more

During the summer months, the hours of daylight are longer, so make good use of it, especially the lighting around sunset, also known as the golden hour, which will create some beautiful warm tones and soft-lit imagery. Wearing light, airy and flowy fabrics will work well for a summer theme, as well as keeping everyone cool. Include seasonal items such as parasols, sunglasses and seasonal flowers that will not wilt in the heat, like orchids, sunflowers or roses. Capture shots of your guests enjoying refreshing cocktails or grabbing a beer from an ice bucket.... read more

Hi, I'm Christina, and my photography business is called Fish 2 Photography. I started it back in 2008, so almost 15 years ago now. I offer personality-driven wedding and family photography all over the North West and beyond. I get asked all the time about the name, and the short version is I didn't want to have a 'usual' business named after myself, I wanted something different and unusual, so I turned a name I used to get teased with as a teenager, Fish, and in the 2000's adding numbers was cool, so I added the 2, and turned a negative into a positive and Fish 2 Photography was born. I offer packages from one hour up to a full day, which is usually 12 hours. Couples get a private online gallery, personalised USB with all their photos on, and there is also the option to add albums or prints.... read more

When looking for images full of character, it's a great idea to consider the things that make you and your partner special, such as your apparel, body mods, interests or fandoms. Referencing something you both love in your images is one way to make your pictures stand out. Look for a photographer that can shoot editorial or fashion images. Why not take a leaf from your favourite movie posters, music videos or the pages of a journal? You could even incorporate props or book a venue with quirky elements such as a gallery or museum.... read more
