Hi!, I’m Wes Simpson – a creative documentary wedding photographer from Liverpool England, covering weddings throughout the UK and worldwide. What I love about photography is that it has tremendous power and emotional value. It 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.
I understand how important meaningful and beautiful photography is to you and your family. My approach to wedding photography is to capture real moments of joy and emotion (which I love). My unique skill set is perfect for this. 20+ years experience in the Television and Photography industry provides me with professional knowledge of Camera and Lighting techniques. This is uniquely combined with an education in Communication and Body Language which enables me to pre-empt and perfectly capture special moments as they happen. 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.
