Lake District Wedding Photographer 

Welcome to the web site of Steven Taylor Photography, leading Lake District wedding photographer.

I am a passionate and experienced award winning wedding photographer based in the Lake District but working throughout the UK and beyond. I have been privileged to work at some amazing destinations throughout the world including Australia, France, Ireland and Italy. I have also made wedding photography at top UK venues in London, Cheshire, Norfolk and Scotland.

There are a few ways of describing my approach to wedding photography: I consider myself to be more than just an average wedding photographer, who deliberately directs your day and poses your guests. My method of wedding photography has been described as reportage wedding photography or photojournalistic wedding photography. I prefer documentary wedding photography because I set out to create a cohesive picture story of your wedding day. My method of photographing your wedding puts the emphasis on creating a visual retelling of your wedding day. I will be discreet, respectful and unobtrusive and I will photograph with a compassionate eye, waiting for the perfect moments that work together to form the story. Of course I will make a few beautiful portraits of the two of you, groups of your guests and details of the design elements that make your wedding day unique to you. I will make those tastefully, quickly and with respect for the occasion. Most of the time you will hardly notice me so your memories will be of your wedding day, not of having your photograph taken.
