Modern Documentary Wedding Photography – Manchester, UK.

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

I photograph weddings in a natural, documentary style. You won’t even know I’m there for most of your wedding day as I don’t spend hours taking posed photographs, 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 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. Learn more about Manchester wedding photographer James Tracey’s style.

“James’ photos on his website stood out from every other photographer we browsed. We loved how playful, creative and downright beautiful his portfolio was. We knew we had made the right choice as soon as we met him.

Jane + Lee

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. James put us at ease immediately and was non intrusive on the wedding day. We have so many photos that we love, we can’t select our favourite! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

“James captured our day perfectly, we barely knew he was there yet the images he produced allowed us to see this special day from every angle. Our Photos will be treasured by both of us forever and will continue to stir up emotions each time we cast our eye over them.”
