We are Jo & Jon Award Winning Wedding Photographers based in Manchester and we love to take photos of people enjoying themselves and getting in on the action.
Capturing Love, Laughter, Emotion & Fun
We are Jo & Jon full-time Manchester wedding photographers. We are so lucky to make a living doing something we love and so lucky to get to shoot Manchester wedding photography as the city has the best venues and the city’s landscape always makes a fantastic backdrop in all of our images.
Our photography will not dictate your wedding day and our documentary style to shooting weddings means that we will unobtrusively tell the story of your day as it unfolds. (Not constantly stopping your wedding to get you to pose for contrived shots!)
After all, it is your day and we want you to be able to give your guests your full attention. You will see from our portfolio and blog that we love taking images of people enjoying themselves.
Yes, there are the significant points of the day that we will photograph and you may want specific group or portrait shots (and we will take those images efficiently ensuring that you and your guests all look fabulous!)
But in our experience it’s the pictures you haven’t planned for, like the heckled speech, the playful bridesmaids, the grandad on the dancefloor, that really tell the story of your wedding day.
The end result is a beautiful set of timeless images that not only show you how looked on your wedding day but remind you of exactly how you felt in each moment. Good wedding photography can do that.
No wedding is ever the same as no couples are ever the same. Each have their own story to tell. Get in touch if you think we could be the people to tell yours …

What our clients say about us
Julie + Mike
I have only had a sneak preview of my photos and can already give Jo and John a 5 star review! They were a pleasure to have with us all day and kept everything moving so smoothly for us! The photos I have seen so far are stunning and Jo and John helped us with everything through the day from putting my
dress on to entertaining our two year old. I can’t recommend them highly enough and I can’t wait to see the full photos!

I booked Jon and Jo as soon as we had the date finalised for the wedding. Johnny and I knew we wanted a photographer that would capture the wedding day along with us and our guests being ourselves and being natural. After scouring through the many blogs and websites of photographers, we fell in love with ER photography. The wonderfully candid and natural feeling came through in all of their pictures which was a big plus for us as we were not big posers and we really wanted the personalities of our wedding guests as well to come through. Nothing seemed overdone or too edited. We booked right away and on the day Jo and Jon did not disappoint. Even when it rained right there and then 30 minutes before the outdoor wedding ceremony, they managed to give us pictures that were fun and beautiful. And they were so ninja-ish going about it too. lolz. I think that is why their pictures all look so natural. Truly story telling at its finest. Thank you again so much for the beautiful pictures and the dedication you gave. Can’t wait for the next big event in our lives so we could have you capture it with us again. Much love!

I honestly cannot fault anything, From the first meeting, fulfilling our request for a yellow smoke bomb (to bring my late dad into our day – I’m very grateful) and on the day you both were outstanding and professional yet felt like you were just part of our day so flawlessly. Jo even helped me with my veil hiccup! Nothing was too much, even our guests were impressed!! We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful photos which we will have for a lifetime to look back on. I have no hesitation in recommending you guys and if I ever need photographers in the future you will be my first go to! Both lovely people who are very talented. We’re so pleased we picked you- a mahoosive thank you from us both
Rebecca + Stuart
Wow, wow and more wow!!!! These guys are super talented, work so well together and made us feel so relaxed on our wedding day (even when i was unwell). We have only seen our sneak peak photographs so far but they are so amazing we know we will love the rest and can’t wait to see them. Do not question for a second booking them and do it before someone else does! You will not regret it!!! Absolutely awesome!!!!!xxx
Sarah + Andrew
A huge huge thank you to Jo and John for our amazing wedding photographs. We have such beautiful memories to treasure for our whole lives. From the get go photography was high on our priority list and from the first meeting we knew ER Photography fit what we wanted, especially after our beautiful engagement shoot. We got wonderfully natural photos capturing our day and Jo and John thought of everything – including a jacket so I didn’t get cold! Thank you so so much, we will definitely keep in contact to capture all our exciting moments in the future!

Our professional memberships, subscriptions and media features
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.
If you have your heart set on a pre-wedding shoot or are wondering if it’s something you would both benefit from, get in touch or ask us at your next meeting. The pre-shoot is part of our Fully Loaded Package or available as an add-on to our USB package.
