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, of people who don’t care about what others think. Perfection isn’t something I aspire to, or want to be a part of. Imperfection is more real and exciting. People and memories are more important to me than anything else.

Your wedding photography will keep those moments and memories tangible for generations.

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!

What a guy! Just received our wedding photos and they are honestly AMAZING, Karl captured every single moment so perfectly and really managed to capture the mood of the day. So many amazing candid shots of people just having a really good time! It was exactly what we wanted and the photos are even more perfect than we ever expected. Literally cried/laughed at every single one they are so fab.
Karl is a great guy and he makes you feel so chill and relaxed on the day. Didn’t even notice he was there half the time yet he managed to nail the shots! Thank you so much.
