Full Description
As a full time professional wedding photographer with over 12 years experience, I love creating fresh, beautiful wedding photography that will stand the test of time. Your wedding is one of the single most important days in your life. It’s about you and your families, about two people coming together. I think you should be free to enjoy the day, to soak up the atmosphere and to spend time with your friends and family When photographing a wedding I am warm, friendly and relaxed, and I won’t be shouting at anyone to be anywhere, I just follow what is happening. I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible documenting all the details of your wedding, blending into the background but always ensuring those important shots are taken. My style of wedding photography is relaxed and informal, so that I am ready to capture the spontaneous moments of your wedding day. A lot of the couples I work with would describe themselves as camera-shy, wanting images that evoke the fun and emotions of their day rather than lots of posed pictures. I will capture the fun and emotion of getting ready, your ceremony, family and groups shots plus all the laughter and emotion throughout the day. During the course of the day I will take some time with you both to capture the love you have for each other. After the wedding I will produce for you high resolution colour, black and white edited photographs, all with full printing and sharing rights. Whatever you plan for your wedding, be it a small and intimate one or a big celebration with lots of family and friends, do get in touch if you like my style of photography. Thank you for reading a little bit about me.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Janet Ridley
To be invited to a wedding is always special To be invited as a photographer is a privilege I like to work as unobtrusively as possible, capturing the special moments that happen throughout the day. A “storybook approach ensures each part of the day is recorded as it unfolds. Leaving you with images filled with imagination and emotion. All photography captures the occasion and the moment. I like to believe my work captures a little of the personality of my subjects.

Woodworth Wedding Burnley
Loved every moment of working with Janet, she made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was a really pleasant person to have around. The wedding photos were beautiful and every special moment of the wedding was captured perfectly. Prices were very fair and for the work done I would say that I wouldn't have wanted to pay a penny less. Honestly could not recommend her work enough.

Coppermines wedding
Janet and her husband Paddy were our photographers for our wedding recently... from our very first interaction Janet was so genuinely lovely and we instantly felt happy and comfortable in our choice, something that was only cemented further upon meeting them closer to the wedding Janet and Paddy are great at what they do and their style of capturing the day around us was perfect for us... although when it came to the “few” posed shots we did want Janet was an absolute superstar at making it work and keeping the day flowing � Not to mention within days of the wedding, the link to our gallery was in my mailbox ready for us to look through and download... talk about quick service! I would highly recommend Janet to anybody!!

Janet is a wonderful photographer
Janet is a wonderful photographer and I would highly recommend her! She is amazing at what she does as well as being professional and friendly. We are over the moon with our wedding photographs and can't stop looking at them. Janet took our more formal photos and her husband took our informal/natural ones. You couldn't tell they were there snapping away with their cameras, they were so discrete and blended into the background. Thank you for capturing our day and helping us to make lovely memories!!
