ABOUT WES SIMPSON

Award-winning UK & Destination wedding photographer specialising in luxury weddings and emotional images

What I love about photography is that it has tremendous power and emotional value. A single photograph can soften hearts, strengthen relationships and it can bring people together. Weddings are perfect for this as they serve as a refreshing reminder to be grateful for all the beautiful people and precious memories in our lives.

10+ years experience as a wedding photographer, knowledge of body language and a background in the media industry has given me an incredible gift of being able to visualize an image in my mind before I’ve pressed the shutter. This enables me to pre-empt and capture special moments as they happen.

My cinematic style and ability to capture emotion has seen me become one of the most sought after photographers in the North West of England. Photographing weddings worldwide won multiple awards and seen my work featured in celebrity magazines such as Vogue and Hello!

I am a Liverpool photographer based in Ormskirk, Lancashire, in the North West of England, however, there is no limit to where I will travel to in order to tell your story. If you’re looking for a photographer with the skill, experience and knowledge to capture the magic of your wedding day, then I’m the guy for you. Contact Me 

 

“It’s important to do things in life that make you happy and challenge you. For me, being a wedding photographer does both.”
