Natural & Relaxed Wedding Photography

Hi there, I'm Ian. I specialise in creating natural, relaxed wedding photographs for couples getting married in & around York and throughout the UK. I love working as a York wedding photographer!

My approach is discrete and informal. I take pride in capturing the natural & unique moments that occur during your wedding day, without bossing you around and telling people where to look or how to behave. Because of the way that I work, the result is a timeless & honest collection of images. They capture the moodemotion and atmosphere of the day that will mean so much to you in years to come.

"Thank you so much for some lovely photos, we like how you've captured moments of the day which we didn't even know you were part of. Your interaction with the guests on the day was lovely and we had lots of great comments about how nice you were!"

Candid Wedding Photography

I focus on capturing honest, unposed and natural moments. You’ll get to see details that you wouldn’t have otherwise noticed on the day.

"We wanted to maximise the amount of time we could spend enjoying our friends and family on the day and you enabled us to do that whilst still capturing some beautiful shots. They really capture how much fun we had and the more sentimental moments.
Thank you so much for these photos, we absolutely love them."

Sarah & Si

"Thanks for our beautiful wedding photos!  You were the right man for the job; you perfectly captured the atmosphere and all the little moments, and we barely knew you were there.  High praise from everyone!"


Marquee & Tipi celebrations

Enjoy your celebration anywhere you want - in the grounds of a beautiful venue, a picturesque field, or the comfort of your family garden.

Relaxed wedding portraits

Nervous about your portraits? It’s completely understandable.

Having your picture taken isn’t something that’s part of your everyday life so it’s quite reasonable to be a little anxious. I’ve been there myself, I get it.

Intimate celebrations

I enjoy photographing celebrations of all shapes and sizes. My discrete and unobtrusive approach helps me to blend in during intimate celebrations. They’re always such a privilege to be part of.

"You put us at ease throughout the day especially as we're both pretty camera shy. Thank you for all of your advice & support on the day, a great calming influence."

Daniel & Caroline

"Pippa's looked at them a hundred times already! We had lots of compliments that the photos didn’t take over the day and about your low profile during the mingling and speeches etc. Which is exactly what we were hoping for!"
