DOCUMENTING REAL WEDDING STORIES

SHOOTING WEDDINGS FOR OVER 10 YEARS AROUND THE WORLD. I CAPTURE STORIES AND MOMENTS IN MY UNIQUE AWARD WINNING STREET STYLE

I don’t stage moments

Based in the north west of England, I’m a Manchester wedding photographer. I’m a people photographer. Capturing you and your guests doing what you do best. Loving life. Living in the moment. I capture these real memories forever.

I don’t want your wedding day to be influenced by me at all. No staged moments, I shoot instinctively, using my years of experience to anticipate moments and tell stories.

“Looking through the photos is like reliving the day, it brings back all the love and laughter (+ crazy dancing) we had!”

Meg + Tom, 2021

I love shooting weddings

The perfect opportunity to capture your unusual, funny, weird and real moments. The things you see, the moments you miss.

I blend in like a guest, getting close to the action without intruding. Making sure your photographs show how you felt, how you partied. Real documentary wedding photography.

What my awesome couples say…

I shoot weddings for couples that are laid back and ready for a huge celebration. They are often not keen on having their photo taken and don’t want to stand around posing all day (although I do often take a few group shots and relaxed couple moments, nothing cheesy!). Read some of my google reviews (opens in new window) and have a look at the kind words I’ve received over the years.

“We are cheekily smug about having found you online and over the moon that you were able and willing to photograph our wedding.”Belle + Ed

“The light, the mood, the people – you managed to capture everything perfectly without us ever feeling that you were there.”Astrid + James

“The tears, the laughter and the love that we felt on the day, was felt all over again. I never knew photographs could have that effect, it captured our day perfectly….They are amazing! Gemma + Graham

“Words can’t express how wonderful you were yesterday. It didn’t feel as though you were our photographer but a guest.” Sophie + Rav

You have captured our day perfectly – all those little moments that would’ve gone unnoticed, you got them…. and your ability to capture a personality in a photograph is just incredible.Lauren + James

About me

Adam Riley Headshot

A Manchester wedding photographer. I have been travelling the UK and beyond shooting weddings full time for over 10 years.

I live with my wife Laura, our boys Noah + Lev and our fluffball of a dog Quorra. We can often be found on dog walks, kids running wild and Quorra covered in mud!

When I’m not shooting weddings or playing with the kids. I love cycling, going to gigs, oil painting and of course having some wine and nice food with Laura!

YOUR WEDDING. YOUR WAY

With years of experience, I blend in like a guest getting close to the action to document what your day felt like. How you loved, how you partied.

IMPERFECT MOMENTS. PERFECTLY

Weddings are not always perfect, they are real. The flower girl picking her nose, the groom having a sneaky sip from his hip flask. These are the stories you will tell for years to come.

UNIQUE. LIKE YOU

As a multi award winning wedding photographer, I have a unique approach, incorporating street photography to create images that tell your story.

about me

When Laura and I got married, we wanted to spend time with our family and friends. Dancing, eating, drinking, more dancing. It’s what I think weddings should be about. Documentary wedding photography is designed to allow you to do that.

I won’t ask you to pretend to put on earrings or fake laughter. I don’t hang your dress on a tree. 

Your wedding day will be non-directed, with an unobtrusive reportage approach. I capture the hugs, looks and love, but also the crazy moments that happen in a flash, or those things you miss. I document the story of your day. A story for you to tell for generations to come.

“Do I take any posed group or couple photos?” is a question I’m often asked. I do! See some examples and more information.

My images are real moments. A unique look at your day through my eyes.
