“I’ve been incredibly passionate about photography from a very early age. Being a professional wedding photographer is an incredible job and I really do love it. Having previously studied Accounting and Finance at the University of Manchester back in 2008, I embarked upon a creative career to fund my studies but loved photography so much that I carried it on after graduating in 2011.”

“My photography business started in Ibiza shooting some of the best parties on the island. Since moving my focus onto wedding photography I have still kept my love of party pictures. I have used all my earlier experience in event photography to capture unforgettable wedding party pictures! Some of my favourite images are taken at the end of the night when everyone is on the dance floor.”

“In my spare time I love to travel and see the world. Summers are incredibly busy for me so I take most of my holidays during the winter season. Snowboarding is my main hobby and I have been lucky enough to spend winter seasons in the Alps and in Lake Tahoe, California. I also thoroughly enjoy food (who doesn’t) and music.”

Manchester Fearless Photographers

Three years ago I was accepted as a Fearless Photographers member. This is a network of the best wedding photographers in the world and only 30 photographers in the entire North West have been included so this was a great achievement. We all encourage each other to continually improve our work and deliver the best possible images for our clients. I feel truly honoured to have been recognised as one of Manchester’s best wedding photographers.

Natural approach

Shane’s wedding photography style is natural and contemporary. “I place a strong emphasis on creating images that are truly unique for each of my clients; telling the stories of their day and capturing natural moments as they happen.” His approach to photographing weddings always has the story of the day at the forefront. This is why we offer full day coverage as standard, so that no moment is missed. Every part of the couples day will be captured from bridal preparation through to the evening party. This is something Shane is passionate about providing.

“I don’t want to compromise at any point, these moments will only happen once. A lot of photographers will leave right after the first dance. I love getting party pictures in the evening when all the guests are having fun.”

Relaxed and unobtrusive

Many couples that Shane works with don’t like having their photo taken. Feeling comfortable is crucial. Shane always encourages couples to really enjoy their wedding day and not worry about the pictures. By having a relaxed and unobtrusive approach Shane has taken stunning images of the most camera shy newlyweds. Most people don’t like being in from of the camera, the trick is to not feel like you are.

Shane likes to photograph with natural light the majority of the time. This saves on setting up complex lighting which can be time consuming. Shane loves using natural light to photograph in a clean and contemporary way. The most important consideration is always the couple, making sure they are happy, relaxed and enjoying themselves.

When Shane is not capturing portraits or group shots he is taking natural pictures of the wedding party. Shane blends in with the guests and tells the story of the day through images. Another aspect of the day which he captures is the details, from the wedding flowers to the table styling. Engaged couples spend a huge amount of time hand selecting the details for their big day it’s important to document these finishing touches.
