Karl Chester Wedding Photography

Karl is a documentary photographer who appreciates modern portraits. Taking wedding photos in Manchester, Sheffield, The Lake District, Shropshire & beyond. Best suited for couples wanting un-posed, reportage & natural photography.

I want to take photos of people in love, people who don’t give a shit about what others think. Perfection isn’t something I aspire to, or want to be a part of. Imperfection is real and exciting. People are more important to me than anything else. Photography will keep the memories alive.

My hope is that you are looking for a storyteller who embraces new adventures and celebrates individuality. I’m someone who wants to be a part of your unique and incredible wedding. I’m not a photographer who wants to be a ticked box next to ‘seat covers’.

We can't get enough of our pictures, thank you! Everybody loves how natural they are and how they tell such a great story. My husband isn't a huge poser but Karl made him feel at ease and the portraits exceeded our expectations. Karl started early and stayed late to capture every part of the day. Couldn't have asked for more! Would highly recommend! Thanks again!

Jo & Phil

Karl is such a nice, relaxed, cool, easy going guy who really fit in to our whole wedding day, making us feel at ease throughout and capturing the perfect shots from the start to the very end of our day! The photos are natural, funny, beautiful, REAL and a true reflection of the day that we had! x
