Full Description
Well established business travelling internationally photographing weddings. Most of our work is weddings as it takes a lot of skill to do it managing people, changing weather and obstacles. To put it simply, we love them! A mix of journalistic and creative off camera lighting to give you a relaxed informal approach.

As seen in over 31 publications, nominated for four awards in 2018. No matter what the weather, I aim to get you some stunning shots. Every package we offer, has all your edited images royalty free. We believe in the Brides and Grooms discretion and only post your pictures with your consent.

Phil was recommended by a friend and I could not be happier! He made us feel relaxed from day one and is just the right mix of fun and professional. Everyone commented on how fab he was on the day and looking over the finished pictures took us right back! More than one person has said that they are the best wedding pictures ever and we can’t agree more! The emotion in each picture shines through!

If you don't choose Philip, you're a burke
I literally can't rate Philip highly enough, he's an amazing photographer. Half stand up comedian, half ninja. When you know he's there he'll get you laughing and get rid of any pre-wedding jitters, when you don't he'll capture some beautiful images. We literally didn't see him at all during the wedding breakfast but he got some great photos. He redefines going above and beyond, from sorting out button holes and running errands to standing in the middle of the river at Bolton Abbey in pitch black just to get the perfect photo. He even personally delivered the USB sticks to us, something I doubt others would go to the effort of doing. Choose this guy and you'll be writing a review like this, I guarantee it.

Brilliant!! Book now :)
I really cannot reccomended Philip enough. He was amazing throughout. Both me and my husband hate photos but he made us feel so much at ease all day and we love the photos so much! He was so helpful throughout the day making our day even more perfect. He's even good at untangling necklaces! You can really tell he has a great passion for what he does. Thanks again Philip!

If you looking for beautiful photos, a talented, q
Phil takes great care in getting the perfect shots and has an easy going but pro active manner on the day ... he makes the photos fun and interacts with your guests and even provides a little humour without taking over the day. We love our photos Phil - thank you. As always I will be recommending you in the future.

For anyone looking for a wedding photographer here
Amazing, faultless service from start to finish. From our engagement shoot, countless emails and the day itself he was friendly, professional and put us at ease. We received the pictures and they are exceptional, beyond anything we could have wished for! He captured the day perfectly and we couldn't be happier! Mr and Mrs Farrand, 01.08.17

an amazing eye for detail
Having used Philip Burke for a shoot I can honestly say I have never encountered anyone with such a great work ethic and an amazing eye for detail with a flair to be able to capture amazing memories. What Phil is able to do with a camera and his eye is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a photographer for any event.
