Contemporary Staffordshire Wedding Photography – Staffordshire & UK

Congratulations! the date is set and you are now making plans for your special day. There will be many things to consider to ensure that your wedding is unforgettable for yourselves, family and friends; choosing your attendants and bridesmaids, the dress, the suits, the venue, the cars, the colour scheme, flowers, the make-up and hairstyle, the music, the menu – not to mention the hen and stag weekends!! – the list is almost endless to ensure your perfect day is just that – perfect!

BUT PLEASE REMEMBER the next few lines….

once your special day is over along with your memories you walk away with just 2 things – each other and your photographs
make the right decision in this area and your day will live on forever…

Choose an experienced professional qualified photographer.

We hope through this website we will help to remove some of the mystique and confusion that surrounds “wedding photography” and hopefully encourage you to get in touch with us to arrange a free personal consultation where you can view our work, see and feel the exquisite albums, talk budgets and get to know us a little better.

If you are using or visiting our site to compare us with other photographers please compare our work before you compare the price…

Please take time to browse through the galleries, see our latest weddings on the blog and also take time to browse the featured weddings to gain an insight into how we like to photograph a wedding, and begin to see your own wedding photographs come to life…

We are full time, qualified, fully insured and yes ….. award winning wedding photographers.

We have had the immense pleasure of photographing some truly fantastic couples on one of the most important, emotional and exciting days of their lives, well over 1000 couples over the last 30 years. We have photographed all manner of people and events throughout our career but without doubt there is nothing to compare with the wonderful experience of working with a bride & groom on their wedding day. We will always give what you would like rather than what you must have, it’s your wedding day, we are there to share, enjoy and record the day as it unfolds….

To us wedding photography is not simply our business…..it is also our passion. Use our experience to help make your experience a happy and successful one.

We would love to hear about your plans, and to discuss how we can capture your day perfectly for you.

If you’d like to talk please do not hesitate to get in touch by email or call us.

St Annes Streetly and Chateau Impney | Katie + David

It was back in 2015 that Katie and Dave chose ourselves to be the photographers for their wedding at St Annes at Streetly and then at the lavish Chateau Impney at Droitwich. Following and helping with their plans since then has been more like an adventure culminating with a very memorable day and a fabulous evening finale for all of those fortunate to be involved.

The Crows Nest | Julie + Kevin

A major accident on the A38  severely delayed both the groom and then the bride.A force nine gale was blowing, rain showers with heavy rain forecast …a recipe for disaster? Not on your life, both Kevin and Julie could not stop smiling and laughing throughout my time with them at The Crow’s Nest at The Waterfront, Barton Marina on their wedding day….what a fabulous couple to work with.

" We would like to thank Les from Barry James Photography for giving us the most beautiful memories to keep forever and ever of our special day. Not only is the finished product outstanding but on the day, Les blended in so well that the guests didn’t even know they were being photographed. We also love how natural a lot of the shots are, those are the best ones, they hold so many happy memories. We had a pre wedding shoot with Les to use as part of our guest book and plan to replicate the image as our family grows. Highly recommended. Very friendly yet so professional 5***** Stacey + Aaron"
