Hello, I’m James, a professional Manchester wedding photographer covering weddings all over the U.K. alongside international destination weddings. I take photos as your day happens and I work hard to tell the real story of your wedding day without awkward, posed photographs. Read more about Manchester wedding photographer James Tracey.


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 a short session of lightly directed couple photos is all I need so you can enjoy the rest of your wedding day with your family and friends. Learn more about my style.


My wedding photography is simple, I offer full day coverage from bridal preparation until the dancing. You get all your photos on a USB so you can print, share and upload your photos without restriction. Click here to find out more about Manchester wedding photographer James Tracey’s wedding package and pricing.


I’m sure you’ll have plenty of questions and I’d love to hear from you about your day and what you want from your wedding photographer. Although I’m a Manchester wedding photographer, I travel all over the UK and I love destination weddings. If you’re looking for modern, natural wedding photography, Get in touch.

What my clients say…
