Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire Wedding Photography By Dave Thompson
I’m Dave, and welcome to my website. I’m a passionate wedding photographer who’s based around Stockport and Manchester and I love telling wedding stories through photography. My aim is to give you relaxed, unobtrusive and natural wedding photography- that you might call ‘real moments’ some of which you can see in my portfolio. I’m a ‘heart on my sleeve’ kind of photographer, so don’t be surprised if you see me wiping a tear from behind the camera during your ceremony! I do love weddings!
Moments that matter to YOU
As a documentary wedding photographer, I try to capture the moments that you might have missed. My editorial photography background means I come from an industry where I had to capture moments as they happened. Bringing this into my wedding photography allows me to capture the full range of emotions throughout your day, in a way that will bring those feelings back to you each time you look at your wedding photographs.
North West Wedding Awards
I was delighted to be announced Winner of the North West Wedding Awards ‘Business of the Year, 2019‘. In October 2021 I was nominated as a Regional Finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards as both Photographer of the Year and Newcomer of the year.
Family and friends
Wedding photography without posing allows you to relax, laugh and enjoy your wedding day with friends and family. You should be able to remember your wedding day as one spent with all your family and friends. I love capturing these moments from bridal prep through the ceremony, speeches and your party.
Your wedding day should be the most memorable, relaxed day of your life. I want my couples to have fun at their wedding. That begins from the moment we first meet, through to weeks after your wedding day has passed when your final images are delivered. You can find more examples of my natural wedding photography here.
