I love to document the moments in between the moments; the unplanned, the stories, the magic, the little idiosyncrasies that make us individual and interesting. With 20 years experience in the industry, my knowledge of body language and film, combined with my love of people, enables me to pre-empt and capture special moments as they happen. I pride myself in my ability to capture natural moments of pure joy and raw emotion and in creating images that are unique, memorable and authentic. Experience has taught me that these are the types of images that increase in personal and emotional value far beyond the wedding day and are the type of photos my brides and grooms cherish. If you feel a connection with myself and my work, I would love to work with you. I’m based between Liverpool and Manchester in the North West of England, which provides me with great transport links to be able to travel to photograph weddings at destinations throughout the UK and abroad.

Bio

Wes Simpson is a UK and International luxury-wedding photographer, widely recognised as being one of the most desirable photographers in the UK. His skill as a photographer is in his ability to see an ordinary moment and turn it into an extraordinary photograph.

Trained as a Cameraman by the BBC and aided by his media degree, Wes’s technical knowledge of framing and lighting empowers his visual storytelling style. His unique approach to photography can be credited to his early career, which saw him working on various TV shows, such as Hollyoaks, Brookside and Shameless, together with the feature films Alfie, with Jude Law and 51st State, starring Samuel L Jackson.

Commercially, Wes has filmed and photographed musicians including rock group U2, Paul Weller, Pink and Morrissey. The quality of his work, coupled with his professionalism and enthusiasm, led to him providing photography for the weddings of numerous celebrities, Premiership footballers and brides and grooms from all walks of life who value his emotive style. Wes’s unique approach to wedding photography even caught the eye of TV producers who enlisted him to be a feature photographer on Channel 5’s ‘Celebrity Wedding Planner’.

In the world of photography, legendary photography ambassador and author Skip Cohen recently sought Wes out as the first photographer outside of the United States to take part in a Feature Interview about his work. In 2016, Wes was commissioned to photograph the wedding of the UK’s biggest selling Classical Artist, Russell Watson; a destination wedding, which featured in an impressive 11 page spread in HELLO! Magazine. More recently, Wes’s ability to capture emotion has led to him being nominated for Wedding Photographer Of The Year at the North West Wedding Awards, consecutively in 2016 and 2017.
