Documentary wedding AND FAMILY photography

Hi I’m Wes, a Staffordshire wedding and family photographer.  I’m experienced in capturing timeless photographic memories and creating iconic images for couples and families – with a keen emphasis on creative documentary-style photographyI’m a qualified professional photographer with 18 years of experience in my field.  My natural wedding and family photography style has been developed through years as an award-winning photojournalist in The Midlands.

I live in Leek, a great little market town on the fringes of the Peak District National Park, in Staffordshire.  This gives me access to Cheshire, Shropshire, Stoke-on-Trent, Stockport and Manchester.

My Approach

My photography style is best described as cinematic, creative, documentary photography.  I have a strong journalistic background and aspire to tell the unravelling story that is presented to me in the most unobtrusive and beautiful way.  I like to photograph my couples, their family and friends enjoying themselves in their surroundings and atmosphere naturally – capturing expressions of joy, laughter and tears authentically.  I also like to set aside time for portraits in my signature style, creating iconic images for my couples that utilise their venues’ best features and scenery.  Paramount for me as a wedding photographer is to deliver a service and final set of images that my couples are proud to shout about.

Story telling photography

My goal at your wedding is to let you enjoy the day with your family and friends as I capture all the fleeting moments that make your wedding unique. My images are a collaborative vision between me and my couples, with one goal: to create beautiful, iconic imagery photographed naturally.  I work in a discreet way, looking to document the story of your wedding for you to look back on in years to come.  Being a wedding photographer isn’t just about photographing the day as it unfolds; it’s about spotting potential moments. Every moment of your day evolves into a potential memory. It’s my job and passion to be ready to capture that for you.

Staffordshire Family Photographer


My family photography sessions are all shot outdoors at several tried and tested locations in Staffordshire, which all offer beautiful seasonal backdrops.  Gone are the days where everyone wants to just have plain black or white backgrounds.  Photos outside often portray adventure and a healthy lifestyle and most importantly these surroundings allow everyone to feel more relaxed and to have fun!  I really enjoy capturing images for families – being a dad myself I love to look back on pictures of my own family that encapsulated a moment or feeling.  When photographing families or individuals I want to show their bond and true character.
