I’m Ryan, I love photography, family and football. You’re looking at this site because you are looking for someone to photograph your wedding. So let me tell you about me and the way I work.
Like weddings, wedding photography has moved a long way from the tired and traditional. A good wedding photographer will shoot your wedding in a photo journalistic documentary style. Telling the story of your day through beautiful timeless pictures. Your wedding day shouldn’t be directed by your photographer. In fact for the most part your photographer should go unnoticed as they document your day in the most unobtrusive way possible. Capturing all the amazing moments as you experience them, and some of the quirkier ones you might miss. No contrived shots and absolutely no requests to say ‘cheese’. I have shot over 500 weddings and I can tell you that no two weddings are the same as no two stories are the same. So you can’t go into shooting a wedding with a set routine, a copycat approach! My approach is to just shoot the day as it unfolds with images that tell that story of your day. Images that will have the power to emotionally transport you back to a specific moment on your wedding day. Yes there may be group shots that you want and that’s fine. They can be taken quickly, naturally and without fuss, creating interesting group pictures that you will want to look at again and again. As a good photographer will ensure that in each and every shot you and your guests look fabulous!
I worked for many years as a professional photographer for the FA, covering international fixtures all over the world, and when I’m not working now I can be found on the touchlines shooting for the national press. Experience in sports photography has been invaluable to me when shooting weddings. I know that there is only one fleeting chance to get that shot, and at a wedding that might be a split second glance between a bride and her father, a joke shared between the groom and his best man, a child’s delight at receiving a gift. Tiny details that help to tell the story of your day.
Your wedding day starts as soon as you wake up, and goes on to well into the night and I will be there for as much of that day as you want. In the evening of my weddings, I like to get creative with the lighting and take some high impact images. These are what I call the ‘wow’ shots, allowing me to offer my clients something unique. You will see examples of these images over these pages.
Though based in Yorkshire, I shoot weddings all over the UK and destination weddings further afield. Often my clients have moved away from Yorkshire and are returning home to get married. In many cases it is the start of a working relationship that sees me photographing all the significant moments of their family lives.
But that’s enough chat from me, please browse the site. Hopefully, my images will speak for themselves.
