There’s more to photography than just clicking a button and taking a photo. It’s really about capturing the emotion and atmosphere in the moment. It’s what I love so much about photography, it forces you to be present.
Hi my name is Priti (pronounced pretty). I’m a Manchester wedding photographer also covering the north west & beyond. I’m a creative documentary wedding photographer. I love to tell stories through the lens. When I’m not at weddings, you can find me in a photo pit at a concert, photographing press sessions with bands and artists, exploring a new city or town, or reading a book. I’ve always loved all forms of creative media, I studied Multimedia & Internet back at Uni and after working in an office for 6 months, decided it wasn’t for me! I went travelling for the best part of a year and had the best time, having recently brought a camera, it came with me. Upon returning back to the UK, I had NO IDEA what I wanted to do work wise. And so I thought I would give freelancing or self employment a go. Here we are.
Since starting this journey, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients ranging from education institutions to commercial clients to my couples – And I love it (even the admin stuff!) Clients have described my work as creative, documentary and captivating, so I’ve ran with that! I love to photograph fly on the wall but I also love to engage with guests so you end up with a nice mix of photos from the day. I’m super relaxed and well…informal! Camera shy? So am I! You don’t have to worry, I got your back with capturing those candids. My work has been published to print media along with online like over at Plans & Present’s Wedding Blog, Rock n Roll Bride, Asian Wedding Ideas. If you like what you see here on the website and would like to meet for a chat over a coffee or JD & Coke – get in touch!
What my couples think…
There’s no good in me trying to convince you so I’ll let my couples do the talking…
Some of the weddings I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph have been featured in some of the leading wedding blogs including Rock n Roll Bride, Plans & Presents, Brides Up North & more.
