About Wes Simpson

Luxury Documatary Wedding Photogarpher.

Let’s get to know each other,

I’ll go first…

I’m Wes Simpson, a multi-awarded UK and destination wedding photographer living in West Lancs, UK. I help couples save time on their wedding day, feel comfortable with the camera and get the pictures they desire.

Whilst working as a TV cameraman I looked through my parent’s wedding album hoping to see their love, connection and genuine moments. Sadly, those storytelling images were missing.

This inspired my journey into wedding photography and a mission to provide couples with real, meaningful, and powerful wedding pictures.

Two decades later, I’ve helped hundreds of couples worldwide capture the best day of their lives. And I’d love to do that for you.

I’ve made friends, won awards, and photographed celebrities, footballers, and music icons. I’ve even appeared on TV and featured in Hello! and OK! Magazine.

TWO-TIME WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2023 and 2022

THE ENGLISH WEDDING AWARDS

I believe photography provides a pathway back to happier times when we need it most!

I don’t just want to take photos, I want to help you make great photos, by allowing you to be you and celebrating it. By showing everything you see as a flaw, to be as beautiful as your partner thinks it is. By painting a picture you want to study and remember when real life hits you.

When you need the comfort of your memories of the better times, I want to make photography you’re proud of and cherish because it’s authentically you; no gimmicks or regrets, just you and your love story.

Wes.

MY ORIGIN STORY begins…

In school, I was told to drop art (the only subject I enjoyed) because it would never take me anywhere.But, passion and dreams are important.

01.

UNIVERSITY OF LIFE

I got a degree and started my career as a Cruise Ship photographer for Carnival USA. It was perfect! I saw the world and learned lifelong skills.

02.

MEDIA CAREER

Trained as a cameraman with the BBC and Channel 4. Worked on popular TV shows and a couples of feature films. I then worked in the music industry with the UK’s biggest selling classical artist.Travelled the world on the promotion of 3 platinum-selling albums and a world tour.

03.

GOD’S PLAN

Photographed my first wedding, Kerry the bride said “Wow Wes, you captured “US.” And I was hooked! I’ve since photographed 100’s of weddings worldwide. Commercially, I’ve worked with global brands such as Manchester United and photographed some of my favorite music icons such as U2, Pink, Paul Weller, Morrissey, Jay-Z and Richard Ashcroft.

As cheesy as it sounds, I didn’t choose photography. Photography chose me.
