I started on this venture many years ago being a keen photographer it started with a skint workmate wanting his wedding photographed, this moved on to a neighbour who I lived next door to wanting me to photograph her eldest daughters wedding.
This in turn moved onto both her daughters and a cousin...... and so on!
Having photographed more than a few weddings including weddings on old 35mm back in the day, digital age has now taken over and I use Nikon Digital equipment.
Photography wise I use a documentary style of photography for weddings this is much more of a modern way to take photos on the day, slipping back to the traditional ways for when formals are required, for much of the day I just melt into the background letting the bride and groom enjoy their big day!
While I don't pretend or perceive to be a professional in my eyes one who is fully employed day to day, I am a very good photographer, well organised and extremely critical of what I do, I certainly don't want a change of profession or to make a living out of it or wish to, however that may change in the future so what I require is to build up a sizeable portfolio and that means photographing more weddings, functions, prom nights, party's etc and this reflects in the prices I charge.
I am locally based in Astley but can travel to where your photography is required - including Spain which is where I photographed one late last year................not bad for an amateur!!
Fabulous couple Ashleigh & Grant got married at the MacDonald Kilhey Court Hotel in Standish at the beginning of October, however the gods didn’t shine for them with typical October weather. We managed to snatch some photographs outside in-between the rain but it didn't deter them and they was rewarded with some great shots.
Aidan & Ciara held their wedding at Ashfield House, Standish at the end of November.
Photo's were taken exclusively taken at the house and in the grounds.
Paul & Ann held their wedding and reception at Leigh Cricket Club, photo's were taken at Pennington Park, Leigh and at the cricket club.
'Hi Iain, You did a fantastic job, we're spoiled for choice as to which ones to be enlarged and framed'
'thanks for making me cry watching the slideshow' Ann
