Hi and thanks for visiting my website! I'm Jack and I love taking photographs. For me it's all about capturing the special moments during a wedding which become long lasting memories of your special day. I have a unique style which I believe makes me stand out from lots of other photographers. I like to make the whole experience of the day as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
What can we expect from your photography?
Creative 'behind the scenes' style photography. I like to be in the background capturing natural smiles and candid moments. I believe in quality. I am crazy about the quality of my photography. This is why I have invested in the best possible camera equipment specifically for Weddings.
What equipment do you use?
I use Nikon Professional Cameras and a full range of Nikon Professional Lenses.
What is your style?
As I previously, my style is Documentary/Reportage/Story-telling. I like to be in the background capturing the natural smiles, emotions and candid portraits. For me it's about capturing the small details to remember, long after they have been forgotten. I would recommend only a few group photographs as this leaves more time for creative, fun photos.
What words would you use to describe your style?
I would say Natural, Fun, Creative and Emotion.
Where are you based?
I am based in Manchester but I cover weddings anywhere in the UK and Abroad.
How did you get started and what are you doing now?
I first started photography 8 years ago when I enrolled on a City & Guild Course in Digital Imaging. After completing the first year I won 1st place in the National Competition run by City&Guilds. I travelled down to London for the awards evening to collect my prize and to see my work up on display in Morley Gallery. After finishing my second and final year, I began a 3 year course studying Photography and Digital Imaging at University and in 2013 I graduated with a 1st Class Hons. In August 2013 I started working full-time for Miller Metcalfe Estate Agents as a Professional Property Photographer and still continue to photograph many events including weddings, sports and many other events.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about your special day. I am more than happy to chat about your requirements and discuss a price that I feel is fair and not overpriced.
Choosing Jack as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. Not only did he give us a great rate but he was an absolute pleasure to work with on the day - he quietly and unobtrusively captured all the moments from our wedding without being in peoples faces or barking orders, and the photos he produced were absolutely stunning. He was professional and friendly and really made sure he knew what it was we wanted from our photos - and then made it happen. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photographs and would recommend Jack in a heartbeat! Tom and Clare
"Jack was recommended to us from a friend and right from the outset he was so genuinely enthusiastic about making sure we got exactly the shots we wanted. We loved his documentary style and the way he captures moments that make each wedding day unique. Jack did his own research into the venue and when we met him there he took test shots and chatted with us about how we wanted him to work on the day. During the preparations on the morning of the wedding he did a brilliant job of being there in the background and not being 'in the way' or demanding, just captured the atmosphere perfectly whilst we were busy getting ready. The finished pictures were beyond anything we'd expected, it is amazing how his photos tell the story of the whole day and how he has somehow managed to capture the joy of it all, we still can't stop looking through them! We wouldn't have wanted anyone else other than Jack to document our day and we would recommend him to everyone!" Helen and Andy
"I have known Jack for several years, and have therefore had the pleasure of observing his passion and love for photography blossom into an incredible talent- as well as emerge into a fruitful career.
When myself and my now husband set about wedding planning, we wanted our day to have an intimate feel about it- and therefore, instead of employing vendors, we have embraced the talents and creativity of those close to us. This enabled us to support our friends to grow their own businesses instead of paying thousands of pounds to large companies.
Therefore, when it came to choosing a photographer, it was a no brainer! As well as having a familiar face around on the day, we had the added bonus from a personal perspective as Jack was already aware of the potential issues faced on the day due to my dad undergoing chemotherapy at the time. Jack remained incredible throughout the day- managing to get some amazing photos at the best possible times and remaining completely adaptable when it came to fitting my dad in for groups shots etc. depending on how he was feeling hour to hour.
Jack remained professional and courteous throughout the day - we were completely amazed by the results and have spent many hours looking over the photos taken - wondering on many occasions how he managed to get some photos as he blended in completely and we had no idea he was there (obviously having some ninja superpowers).
Looking over previous photos taken by Jack, we fell in love with the laid back documentary style of photos and felt that they provided a clear insight of the whole day- rather than a few staged snapshots.
As I predicted- the day flew by in such a whirlwind that I was unable to take any of it in and at the end of the day I had only viewed the day from my little bubble. Receiving the photos a couple of weeks later and looking back through a step by step account of the day had me in tears- being able to step out from my bubble and to watch the whole day flash by from a completely different perspective was my favourite moment of the whole wedding experience.
We also had several comments from guests who made a particular effort to inform me how polite they found he was when arranging group shots and getting people's attention. From past experience at being 'barked' at by photographers at other weddings- Jack was described as 'a breath of fresh air'.
We couldn't have asked for a better service, quality of the photos or a more professional and adaptable photographer on the day- even if we had booked a package costing £1000's elsewhere. There is not one single thing we asked to change about the photos when we received them as we were absolutely thrilled with the results.
We could not recommend Jack highly enough to others- and I pass his details on at every available opportunity. Finally, a humongous thank you to Jack for documenting the best day of our lives so beautifully- you could not have done a better job, nor have a more content and satisfied customer! Much Love" Joanne & Daniel
"Hi Jack, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the photographer at our wedding in November 2015. The photographs that you have taken really are amazing, you have captured the atmosphere of the day and night perfectly. (You have given me a great selection of Christmas presents for family and friends too, there will lots of photo frames to be purchased!) Looking at them just brings the day and night back to life for us. Thank you again Jack, we couldn’t have done it without you. Rob and David Ps best of luck for the future, you’re gonna go far matey!" Rob and David
"Jack had photographed the wedding of a mutual friend and when MAG began pulling together all the logistics for its inaugural gala dinner, I recalled how fantastic the photographs had been and got in touch to see if he would be interested in helping us out. Jack was great to work with. He understood the aim of the event, the brief we gave him and was incredibly professional on the night, ensuring he got all the shots without disrupting the guests. The photographs were amazing, they captured the atmosphere of the evening for MAG and the grandure of the venue. Both MAG and St.Pauls cathedral have made great use of the photographs and we would be more than happy to work with jack on future events! Thanks Jack!" Sarah - MAG International
