DOCUMENTARY WEDDING AND LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY IN MANCHESTER, LANCASHIRE & THE UK
Hello, I’m Ally, I am an alternative wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Lancashire, I also cover Manchester, the North West, the Uk and anywhere on the planet really. My photography style is mainly documentary, which means I like to capture your wedding in a totally natural way. I work as unobtrusively as possible, blending in the background and creatively capturing those moments as they unfold throughout the day. Real smiles, Real laughter, Real emotion!
I tend not to follow any photography trends that come and go. I want your images to be timeless, so in years to come, when you and your family are looking through your wedding album, those images will still look as special then as they do today. I approach weddings in a different way than a traditional style of wedding photography. I love to look out for those quirky moments, those random fun moments that make a wedding unique. We don’t want to turn your wedding into a fashion show! Your wedding is a celebration of two people in love. You just be yourself, enjoy your day and we will take care of the pictures.
We also offer Portrait lifestyle sessions which we approach in the same way as weddings, all natural and real. We don’t work from a studio and all lifestyle photography is done on location.
I feel very lucky to be a wedding photographer based in Lancashire. I get to work in some great venues and also as a location photographer we have some stunning scenery in Lancashire were I like to take couples and families for portrait sessions.
Lancashire has amazing landscapes, stunning moors and breathtaking coastal scenery that makes a perfect backdrop for weddings and photography to match.
A favourite place I like to go with couples and families alike is Rivington on the west Pennine moors on the outskirts of Horwich and Bolton. With its Beautiful reservoirs and Victorian gothic architecture surrounded by woodland. Check here to a recent Pre wedding shoot I did up Rivington.
Here are a few of my favourite venues for shooting weddings in Lancashire..
