Hi! I’m Wes Simpson,
Whilst 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.
The photographs were okay (despite my father’s moustache and flairs) but the connection between loved ones and the little stories that I’d come to associate with their wedding were sadly missing.
So, 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 photography.
My documentary approach, is similar to how your favourite TV show is filmed, “like a fly-on-the-wall.” Capturing natural photos without interfering with your day.
I’m honoured to say that over the last two decades, I’ve helped hundreds of couples worldwide capture their wedding. And I still have as much fun doing it now as I did when I first started.
I am a two-time overall winner of Wedding Photographer of the Year 2023 & 2022. And Hello! Magazine even featured my work as one of the 50 most memorable celebrity weddings of the decade.
I am based in Liverpool and Lancashire, and I cover weddings in London, The Lake District, the rest of the UK, and destination weddings worldwide.
If this sounds like the kind of wedding photography you’re looking for, I’d love to hear from you. Please contact me 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 meaningfully 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 to 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.
