Lake District Wedding Photographer
Welcome to the web site of Steven Taylor Photography, leading Lake District wedding photographer.
We are two passionate and experienced award winning wedding photographers based in the Lake District, UK. Whilst we primarily consider ourselves to be Lake District wedding photographers, we have been privileged to be the wedding photographer at some amazing places. We have provided destination wedding photography in Australia, France, Ireland and Italy, as well as top UK venues in London, Cheshire, Norfolk, Scotland and venues across the Lake District and Cumbria.
There are a few different ways of describing our approach to wedding photography: we consider ourselves more than just your average wedding photographer, who deliberately directs your day and poses your guests. Our method of wedding photography has been described as reportage wedding photography or photojournalistic wedding photography. We prefer documentary wedding photography because we set out to create a cohesive picture story of your wedding day. This method of photographing your wedding puts the emphasis on creating a visual retelling of your wedding. Whilst being as discreet, respectful and unobtrusive as possible. We will photograph with a compassionate eye, waiting for the perfect moments that work together to form the story. Of course we will make a few beautiful portraits of the two of you, groups of your guests, that you ask for and details of the design elements that make your wedding day unique to you. We will make those on colour film for an extra special feel, we’ll also do them tastefully, quickly and with respect for the occasion. Most of the time you will hardly notice us so your memories will be of your wedding day, not of having your photograph taken.
Get in touch and let us know the date of your wedding, if we are available you can book a free shoot to see if you like us. More details here…
In addition to the more usual digital coverage, for a limited number of couples each year we are able to make an extra special, hand printed wedding album. When we call on our in-depth knowledge and experience of working on film and hand printing albums. We have over 35 years of experience of making fine silver gelatin prints from film negatives and Steven is an Ilford Artisan Partner. To find out more about how we do this, and how it can add to the way we tell your story, please see our page on wedding photography on film.
If our Lake District wedding photography or our destination wedding photography sounds like something you’d be interested in or if you would like us to document your London wedding read more about documentary wedding photography on our philosophy page, and have a good look of some of the wedding picture stories we have made before.
