Manchester Wedding Photographer team Jo + Jon, we would love to help you to choose the right Manchester Wedding Photographer for you. We have provided some fantastic tips and advice on finding the right suppliers and also some wedding venues we can recommend and love to shoot at. We do hope you find this information helpful in your search for the perfect manchester wedding photographer.
Let’s start with a bit about us (Jo + Jon) we are best friends and have been shooting weddings for the last 6 years and we both love what we do. We couldn’t be happier at work and it’s been such an honour to shoot so many amazing Manchester Wedding Photographer that we could pinch ourselves.
Our ethos is not only delivering amazing memories captured as naturally as we can, but it’s to get to know our couples. We feel that building a solid relationship before the big day is crucial to us achieving those natural shots that our couples love.
We are just as busy behind the scenes as we are behind the lens and communication is key, we have made getting in touch with us easy and we offer as many consultations or phone calls during the planning stages as you feel you need. We understand the pressures that face our couples and with your already busy lives, you want to be able to ask us questions or get hold of us immediately, so we do our best to make ourselves as available as we can.
What is an unplugged wedding?
An unplugged wedding is where you ask all your family & friends attending just the ceremony not take photos, but to watch the ceremony with their own eyes and not through the back of a smartphone or through a camera lens. You are paying professionals to take the photos so they can enjoy the ceremony and focus on you.
Why we recommend an unplugged ceremony!
We have had so many photographs ruined by guests using their phones to video the whole ceremony or sticking their phone out into the aisle whilst the bride is walking down. You would be surprised on how many people don’t even realise that standing in the aisle is just “not cool”.
Don’t ban cameras or phones all day!
You don’t need to put a ban on cameras or phones the whole day, just on the important part, which is the sole reason you are there. Your friends and family should be focused on just you during the nuptials and not be looking at the whole thing through a camera, that’s our job, that’s what we are paid for.
The ban on Social Media!
This is becoming increasing more popular, guests have a habit and without realising of putting your photos up on Social Media before your evening guests have had a chance to attend. As photographers, we want to capture those real moments, and there’s no better moment than watching all your friends see you for the 1st time. If bridesmaids and family upload hundreds of photos of a bride in her dress before the evening guests have had a chance to see them, it spoils the surprise.
OUR APPROACH TO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
As a Manchester Wedding Photographer team we will capture your wedding day in a natural documentary style, most of the time you won’t even know that we’re around, we’re like ninja’s (but without the outfits) and can blend into the background, capturing every detail. We capture the moments you won’t even remember and deliver a set of stunning one-of-a-kind images in a beautiful album and a USB + Print Box approx 4-6 weeks after the wedding.
We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the lens on your big day, we are super confident behind the lens so it’s our job to understand your vision.
We start by building a close relationship and investing time getting to know all our couples.

Our pre-wedding photography manchester sessions are a great experience for those couples who are a little camera shy.
The shoots are a great addition to your wedding package and it’s the perfect opportunity for us all to meet up for a little bit of fun.
The key to creating natural photos is to let us direct you, we will see a beautiful backdrop and give you minimal direction, the rest is up to nature.
These pre-wedding photography sessions last about an hour and you can choose a location that has some meaning or let us give you some ideas.
There’s no need to worry about what to wear as it will all depend on the location you have picked and what the weather is like on the day.
All the photos from the pre-wedding photoshoot are available for you to download from your own private online gallery and will also be given to you on a USB.
