I'm a professional wedding and portrait photographer from Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
I have been taking wedding photographs professionally since 2007 alongside my long suffering wife Carol. I offer relaxed, natural and informal wedding photography at affordable rates. All packages are duration based to suit a variety of budgets.
I believe in giving the clients the digital images to reproduce as they wish, this way they don't need to pay twice for expensive reprints. Although I do offer album design, as clients have the full resolution digital images, they are free to create their own beautiful albums as they wish.

I am trying to move toward shots single image type posts instead of big galleries of wedding photography. So with ... Read More

Just wanted to say a big thank you for our fantastic photo’s. We couldn't have wished for anything more…you were great on the day, very helpful and not in your face like some wedding photographers can be! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends & family.
The whole day went so quickly and despite being with us for majority of it, we never noticed they were there snapping away and when we did the couple shots, as our pictures will show, we never stopped laughing.
Pete, we received the dvd’s of the wedding photos this morning, I had to wait ALL day for Andy to get home from work so we could look at them together. Well.........I cried and cried when I saw them, they took my breath away, what a fantastic job you have done. We are so, so pleased with all of the pictures and how you have edited some of them is just brilliant. You are a total, total star!! Thank you so much again for all that you have done.
The photos are stunning - we were completely taken back when we saw the slideshow on our honeymoon - it brings back so many brilliant memories. Even now we keep looking at them and we can't stop smiling! We were so pleased you were our wedding photographers!
One word ... perfect. We went and showed my parents and I kept an eye on my Dad and i'm sure he was about to cry!
I was overwhelmed with how well you managed to capture the day and even confess to shedding a tear or two…Simon even looked like he had a lump in his throat! Thanks to both you and Carol for creating the perfect memory of our perfect day
What a truly gifted guy. Our photographs took our breath away. We chose him from the dozens of wedding photographers we googled because we were just overwhelmed by his artistic interpretation of weddings. These are not just run of the mill photos, somehow he captures peoples feelings and happiness through a lens.
We got the DVD and CD on Saturday and the photo’s are perfect, absolutely everything we hoped they would be a more. Helen cried when we watched the DVD for the first time! You really should be charging double or more for your wedding photography!
Pete, you are a Super-star! Our wedding photos are amazing and we couldn't have wished for better.
We have to say a massive thank you to both of you for doing an absolutely amazing job as our wedding photographers. We both felt like we were superstars for the day, mainly due to the photos looking a million dollars, we just couldn't have got any better.
Just wanted to say again how delighted we were with your work. A number of guests commented on how friendly and efficient and discreet you were. Many thanks for being our wedding photographers
You secured us some breath-taking wedding photos. You captured every emotion on the day - not just of us but of our guests too, and we have many a frame-worthy shot to reminisce over for years to come.
So many people have said such great things about our wedding photographs and we think they are just awesome, thanks again for being omni-present!
