Hi! I’m Wes Simpson,
While working in the television industry as a cameraman on popular TV shows for the BBC and Channel 4, I found myself looking through my parent’s wedding album.
Although the photographs were okay (despite my father’s moustache and flairs), the connection between loved ones and the little legendary stories that I’d come to associate with their wedding were sadly missing.
So, over a decade ago, I decided to pursue wedding photography. I wanted to challenge the status quo and share my knowledge and experience to help couples get real, meaningful, and powerful wedding photos.
I’m honoured to say that over the last 15 years, I’ve photographed more than 400+ weddings in over ten countries. And I still have as much fun doing it now as I did when I first started.
Travelling the world and being surrounded by love and happiness is an incredible adventure. I’ve made friends, won awards, and photographed celebrity weddings, and music icons. Hello! Magazine even featured me as one of the 50 most memorable celebrity weddings of the decade.
Based in Liverpool and Lancashire, I cover weddings in London, the rest of the UK, and destination weddings all over the world.
Due to my documentary approach, similar to how your favourite TV show is filmed, “like a fly-on-the-wall, as though the camera isn’t there.” I can capture natural photos without interfering with your day.
If that sounds like the kind of wedding photography you’re looking for, I’d love to hear from you. Please contact me immediately to check my availability.
Why wedding photography?
When I’m photographing a wedding. I feel like I have a purpose. I feel like I’m contributing to this planet in a meaningful way and doing some good in the world. Especially when I’m capturing natural, authentic moments.
What I wanted to do when I started, was make people happy. To be of service, to provide value, and give them something that they will equally be as proud of.
But then wedding photography turned into something so much better for me. I got to travel, meet amazing people and positively contribute to their lives in a meaningful way.
I hope my pictures make you happy. I hope to inspire you to make others happy, to do good in the world, and feel like you have a purpose.
More importantly, I hope I inspire you to be yourself. Your true authentic self. By opening your mind and your heart you’re going to be a little more compassionate and compassion is what makes the world a better place.
