Award Winning Cheshire Wedding Photographer - David Wallis

My name is David, I am a full time professional wedding photographer based in Cheshire. I first started photography when I was about 8 years old shooting disposable film cameras. I was always the kid who got his photos back from the local Kodak shop with a big red over exposed sticker on them! This was always disappointing and led me down the path of furthering my skills as a photographer. Many years later and after lots of hard work and dedication, I entered the wedding photography industry. I have had the pleasure to photograph weddings all over the UK, from the beautiful town of Hastings, to castles in North Wales and all the way up to the picturesque Lake District. Wedding Photography is my full time occupation, it puts food on my table and it pays for my little boys education. This means I guarantee you a world class experience from initial contact all the way through to delivering your wedding photos. Without my customers I would be stuck in a 9-5 job that I did not enjoy, but your help and support allows me to continue to do a job that I love. I recently won Cheshire Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017 at the TMT Media Awards. This is a great achievement for me and makes me really proud and happy, that the hard work and dedication I put into my wedding photography is being recognised.

Expert Low Light Wedding Photographers

A large part of being such a successful wedding photographer is understanding how light works and interacts with objects around you. I always make the decision on the day whether I am going to shoot using the beautiful natural light or whether I will set up additional lighting. I always prefer to shoot natural light where possible. Ofcourse there are always instances where this is not possible depending on your venue or weather! I have spent many years perfecting my lighting techniques to capture your wedding photographs in the most natural way possible. It is very easy for any wedding photographer to turn your dark venue into daylight using lots of light, but doing it properly takes more skill. I love to capture the ambience of the room, particularly on the dance floor where I have perfected my lighting to capture the beautiful colours and mood. Whether you are getting married in a beautiful Cheshire wedding venue such as Peckforton Castle or a more traditional style wedding such as the beautiful gothic Manchester Town Hall, you are in safe hands.

Natural In the Moment wedding photography

The posed photographs look absolutely amazing and make beautiful wall art for your home. But the most important wedding photos are those beautiful natural candid photographs. This is what I do best, apart from the odd posed photo (which you don't have to have!) and some formal group shots (even those are relaxed I won't line you up wiht military precision and shout at you!). Most of the dayyou and your wedding guests wont even notice I am there. I have some of the best camera equipment money can buy, coupled with my many years experience as a wedding photographer, I really am like a photography ninja! I love to capture all of those laughs, tears, silly moments, everything that makes up your wedding day and makes it personal and special to you. If you would like a relaxed friendly Cheshire wedding photographer, that really understands that your wedding day is for you and your guests to enjoy please get in touch. I have a limited amount of slots available each year and do get booked up quite far in advance. So please book early to avoid disappointment. If you would like to meet for a coffee and an informal chat to discouss your wedding photography please either call or fill out the contact us form. I have lots of printed albums / photobooks that I can bring along for you to look at.
