I hope you enjoy looking through my 'best of' gallery.
For me, wedding photography is all about capturing the emotions of the day. I aim to create a visual diary so that memories can be relived again and again. Every wedding is a fresh challenge. Each wedding brings something new. I'm always on my toes looking for the next shot. Using my experience to second guess what is going to happen next, deciding where I need to be to capture the moment.
My wedding photography is constantly evolving. I work hard at every wedding to deliver the best set of photographs I can, presenting a mixture of the more formal shots together with candid/reportage/fly on the wall photographs.
If you like the type of images I capture I very much hope you will contact me to discuss your wedding or portrait shoot. Please call on +447581274352 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Photography has been my life-long passion. I've taken photos since I was at junior school, developing and printing black and white photos with my Dad in a make-shift darkroom in a large cupboard at the top of the stairs in an old victorian house in North Yorkshire. While taking my degree in Graphic Design at Newcastle Poly II took every opportunity to study photography. I worked for some years as a graphic designer before becoming a wedding photographer and setting up the John Leech Studio here in Grange over Sands in Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District.
Landscape photography goes hand in hand with working as a wedding photographer, understanding landscape composition and how to place a couple within it. I love to travel in the UK and Europe, and have photographed weddings throughout England (including Cumbria, Dorset, Devon, Staffordshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire) and Scotland. I've also had the pleasure of photographing weddings in Finland and Germany.
