Our wedding day, photo by Neil Stewart Photography

Yorkshire Wedding and Portrait Photographer

I'm a Yorkshire man, although part southern as my mum is from Essex (no jokes please), so you get the best of both worlds with me. I'm currently based in Yorkshire. A tiny little village consisting of a pub, a church and nothing else.

My career in photography didn't start that early, I actually have a degree in Music Technology. Chasing the dream of being the next big rock star, playing guitar to thousands. In reality, it was just my girlfriend and her mum on one occasion. ha!

So if I couldn't be on stage, the next best thing would be in front of it taking photos. Along side this I gained a diploma in Photography while working as a fashion photographer for a ladies shoe company. If you see me taking an interest in your shoes ladies, that's the reason why, it's NOT a weird fetish, I promise.

It was actually my own wedding that got me interested in wedding and portrait photography. That and the fact that my lovely wife told her co-worker that I'd photograph their wedding (without asking me first) for free as my first wedding. Talk about being thrown in at the deep end! And since then I haven't looked back.
