Manchester Wedding Photographer James Tracey

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 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.

My latest weddings…

My wedding gallery shows some of my favourite wedding photographs but you should always check out how I photograph a full wedding day. So it’s quite handy that I post a blog about every wedding I photograph including over 100 images from each wedding day, from the morning preparation through to the first dance. My latest weddings are below and you can see every other wedding here on My Wedding Blog.

What my couples say…

“You know you have been part of something very special when people are talking more about your wedding pictures than they are about you actually getting married. It was truly amazing to have you with us in New York to capture our secret wedding in the most beautiful pictures we could have ever wished for. Thank you.”

“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. His laid-back and informal approach was just what we were looking for.

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. The entire experience from the pre wedding shoot to the final photo on the wedding day was professional, friendly and relaxed. 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.”

Not only do you get all your wedding photographs in glorious high resolution files on your wedding USB, but I also include a slideshow of your day which is ideal to show off your wedding on a TV, computer, phone or tablet. Each slideshow is in high definition with a cool track to accompany the wedding images and works perfectly on any device.
