Manchester Wedding Photographer James Tracey

Hello, I’m James and I’m a professional Manchester wedding photographer covering weddings all over Manchester, Cheshire, the North West and throughout the U.K. I take photos as your wedding day happens, working quietly in the background to capture the emotion and fun of your wedding day without any awkward, staged photographs. At some point in the day I’ll take you for a short session of lightly directed, modern couple photos. My style of wedding photography is ideal for couples who prefer relaxed, natural photographs.

I shoot weddings in a discreet, documentary style. For most of the day you won’t even know I’m there. I don’t spend hours taking posed photos, just 20 minutes of lightly directed couple photos is all I need so you can enjoy the rest of your wedding day with your family and friends. I want your wedding photographs to stand the test of time, so I avoid the trends that come and go when my wedding images are individually edited to ensure they look vibrant and beautiful now and in years to come. Click here to learn more about my style.

My wedding photography packages are very simple, I offer full day coverage from the morning preparation all the way through until the dancing. You will receive all your wedding photos on your own USB so you can print, share and upload your photos without any restriction and there’s no need to buy anything after your wedding. My pricing is all upfront with no hidden extras.  Click here to find out more about Manchester wedding photographer James Tracey’s wedding pricing.
