Last update: April 2024

AB Photo is a wedding photography business located in Manchester, Greater Manchester. Owner Alastair has been working in the industry for more than a decade. He takes pride in his ability to make subjects feel at ease in front of the camera and has an unobtrusive approach to taking pictures. Alastair's goal is to leave clients with a gallery of images that showcase their occasion's moments with artistry and care.

Services Offered

Alastair at AB Photo takes documentary and candid style photos as well as some more traditional group shots to give you a range of photographs documenting your wedding. Packages include varying hours of coverage, depending on the couple's needs. These can be discussed with Alastair in advance of the big day. Optional extras include a pre-wedding photo session, a second photographer, and a fine art wedding album. He also offers videography, either all day or as part of hybrid coverage, along with photography. If you would like both to be captured, Alastair recommends a second photographer to ensure all the highlights are preserved on the day.

Exactly what we wanted

Alastair is lovely, professional and easy going. The photography side of things just blended into the day- it didn't feel like we had to spend a large of chunk of time taking photos. He captured exactly what we wanted- relaxed and natural photos of the day. The whole process was super easy and efficient. Highly recommend!

All around amazing

From start to finish, Alastair was amazing. No words can thank him enough. He managed insecurities about being in front of the camera so well. During the ceremony he was so discreet and respectful, all our guests hardly noticed he was there!
He is so easy to get on with and very attentive to little details that matter. We had a perfect experience.

Exceptional service from start to finish

We booked Alastair after coming across his work online. From the very start, communication was great. Alastair arranged a call to get to understand our requirements, he then took the time to meet us at the venue a few months before to get an idea of how the day would go. During the day of our wedding, Alastair made us feel very comfortable. The photos are fantastic and on the day you wouldn鈥檛 have even known he was in the room. Very happy with the service.

Exactly what we wanted!

From the moment we spoke with Alistair we knew we had to book with him. His style of capturing moments was exactly what we were looking for. We had several conversations on the run up to the big day and the morning of our wedding day he helped calm my nerves immensely. We didn鈥檛 really want any posed pictures and if I鈥檓 honest we totally forgot he was there from time to time, which was great for us because having our picture taken can make us feel awkward. All our guests commented on how lovely and polite Alistair was.
Thank you so much Alistair for all your kindness and hard work!

Exactly the type of photographer we wanted!

Alastair was the perfect photographer for us, chilled, relaxed, got the most gorgeous candid photographs and blended into part of the party. So many guests commented on how lovely he was.

Alastair was great communicating before the wedding, made us feel really at ease (and even my very photo reluctant groom is delighted with the photos we have!). Would thoroughly recommend Alastair.

Perfect photographer for a perfect day

Alastair was great from start to finish. We made contact a few months before the wedding and then met in person a few weeks before the wedding at the venue. He鈥檚 obviously a lovely person and made us feel very relaxed. We wanted mostly a candid style with a few group photos. On the day Alistair and his colleague were professional and flexible, it very much felt like they were able to enjoy the day with us. Would 100 percent recommend.
