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.


BIO – Wes Simpson

Wes Simpson – a UK and International luxury-wedding photographer, widely recognised as being one of the most desirable photographers in the UK. Professionally trained as a Cameraman by the BBC and aided by his BA (Hons) 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 documentary 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, opera star 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, 2017 and 2018.
