About Me

wedding photographer manchester david stubbs

Hello I’m David, I’m 34 years old and I have the best job in the world – I am a professional wedding photographer!

That’s me to the left; apart from my own wedding day, it’s one of only a few photos in existence I look ok in. I know what it feels like to hate having a camera shoved in your face followed by the harrowing request of ‘smile’. I’ve set out to make things easier for us all. If you are anything like me then you will appreciate the style of wedding photography I offer – 100% natural and relaxed.

I’m husband to my beautiful wife Lois and we have been married for 6 years now. I’m dad to the most incredible boy – Finlay, and toddler Phoebe. Life just couldn’t be better at the moment!

It was an honor to be asked to photograph at the London Olympic Games. I wasn’t the guy chasing after Usain Bolt after he won, I was hired to document people having a great time and capture the whole Olympic vibe, as well as logistics, for which my photos are now used in documents and advertising all over the world. One of the best experiences of my life.

In early 2014 I was excited to receive a personal invite from Junebug Weddings to join their list of preferred wedding photographers. This is an absolute honour as only 20 wedding photographers from England are invited to be included in their exclusive list.

Junebug weddings commented on how I was able to capture such incredible imagery in a totally natural way and that my portfolio of wedding images stood out above others. I’m absolutely over the moon!

I am a proud member of Fearless Photographers, which is a directory of the best wedding photographers in the world. The purpose of the organisation is to promote photographers who produce photos that have the wow factor, something that little bit special, a photo with a new idea or that has never been tried before. This very much ties in with how I work. Although I do capture every key moment at every wedding, I don’t just point the camera and shoot. I analyse the light, the moment and the emotions of each scene and create a photo that just looks incredible. Every memory captured in a professional and artistic way.

I’m a full time professional wedding photographer based in Manchester. I’ve been very grateful to be recognised for the photos I produce, having been featured in many wedding magazines and blogs. Magazines such as Country Brides, Manchester Wedding Magazine, You and Your Wedding Magazine, Lincolnshire Pride the The Link Magazine. Features in wedding blogs include English Weddings, Boho Weddings, Beautilicious 40 Bride and Brides Up North. You can see some of my features on my published page.

I offer an extensive range of training courses for wedding photographers. My most popular course being my mentoring programme. Teaching is something I hugely enjoy and it feels great to pass on the knowledge I have gained over the years. If you are a wedding photographer looking to push your business in the right direction, see my training page.

Every wedding is different, and I love being the photographer at every single one of them. I feel so privileged to be asked by so many couples to capture their day, and I make it my mission to provide every couple with hundreds of stunning photos. It is the best feeling to have so many compliments about my work, and to see the faces of couples as they look through their album for the first time. Although I am based near Manchester, I cover weddings throughout the North West and UK.
