Documentary Wedding Photographer Sheffield & Yorkshire
Hello, and thank you for visiting the website of Sheffield Wedding Photographer Stu Ganderton. I am a full time wedding photographer based in Sheffield, covering mainly South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottighamshire and across to Manchester and the surrounding areas, but I have photographed weddings right across the UK and even across into Europe and other destinations across the world. I offer unique, documentary style photography with a natural and relaxed approach.
It is an overused expression, but I am passionate about wedding photography. To expand further, I am passionate about telling stories by creating images that will capture the emotions and moments of a couple’s day in a way that does not intrude or invade or interfere. We’ve all been to the weddings where it appears the day is laid on for the photographer. Shouty, bossy, over friendly or sometimes rude photographers doing cheesy poses and masses of group shots. This was a fear on my wedding day, and why I was reluctant to even hire a photographer. So when I decided to make this my career, I wanted to do it differently. So I became the photographer that I would have wanted at my wedding day.
As a photographer based in Sheffield I have the opportunity to work with some incredible brides & grooms, and whether I’m attending a wedding as a guest or as a professional I feel lucky to be part of that couples wedding day.
Natural, unique & relaxed wedding photography in Sheffield
My approach is not what would be described as “traditional wedding photography” but instead my style is more distinctive. Natural, narrative, candid and honest my photography is by definition reportage or documentary. I want the images I take to portray your story, without feeling unnatural while also trying to avoid those awkward group shots that make your guests feel awkward.
The feedback that I’ve received from my clients shows how much effort and care is put into each of the weddings I photograph. The aim is to make sure every one of your guest feels at ease throughout your wedding and that the photographs I take are images you want to buy, enlarge and display for all to see.
Please have a look through my work, have a look at what I am all about and how your day matters to me, and then please contact me so that we can discuss your wedding photography. I prefer phone as it’s more personal, but email is absolutely fine.
