John Steel

Yorkshire | United Kingdom

I'm a Yorkshire based UK documentary wedding photographer who captures people as they really are. I will do exactly what you ask me to do although of course I can offer suggestions based on my experience if you need some advice. Your wedding is unique and I will treat is as such. I don't have a set template to follow, I go with the flow, take the pictures you want and fit in however suits you best.

A little about me:
I live in Meltham, Huddersfield, my life revolves around my two beautiful daughters.
I love a cup of Yorkshire tea (milk, no sugar, leave it to brew), thanks for asking.
I spent over 20 years of my life riding a skateboard (which I still love doing).

Wedding photography with a difference.

I don’t want to give you the same ‘traditional’ photos that everyone else has, nor would you get the same photos that I’ve taken for other couples. I want to tell your story and give you really cool photographs that will take you straight back to what was happening and how you were feeling at that very instant.

“Bonkers” is what I’ve been called by some of my couples. Who wants to be ‘normal’, the same as everyone else? I don’t do normal. I do unique. It’s not a photo shoot, it’s your story. Life is beautifully unpredictable, so you can expect the unexpected! There are no rules! You might call it documentary or reportage photography, you wouldn’t call it formal.

I love observing people and taking pictures that really nail personalities and characters, showing real people being relaxed and natural. I prefer to avoid “wedding faces” and awkward poses, clichés and cheese. And there’ll definitely be NO RULES! Imagination and creativity are everything and I like injecting a little mischief, having fun and going with the flow. I believe it’s all about spontaneity, fun and trust. I capture the characters in your story; the excitement; the fabulous chaos (maybe!); the natural laughter and joy (and tears); and the tender, intimate moments that will effortlessly punctuate your day.
