Wedding Photographer - Craige Barker

Craige was fantastic on the day. Putting everyone at ease and making sure we got the mix of structured family shots and candids we were looking for. Lots of reception shots of happy guests which were lovely to look back on when you feel like you miss a lot as a couple, being so busy on the day. Perfect keepsake box with our ‘bottle of memories’ and usb. Great pricing structure and very pleased with both the engagement and wedding photos we received. Thank you Craige!

Professional and friendly service

Craige was really helpful from the start and was able to play a big part in making our day special and less stressful. We now have loads of great photos to look back through whenever we like.

Amazing experience from start to finish. We didn’t even know he was there!

Where do I begin… researching photography can be a minefield. We had a budget in mind and was struggling to find what we wanted. I messaged Craige and he put me at ease straight away from our first phone call I knew we had to have him. My husband and I both hate having our photograph taken and told Craige we wanted ‘in the moment’ photos which were non intrusive and boy did he deliver!! Even on the more stages family photos we were done in no time and I’ve been to weddings where these are overkill, but not with Craige! He answered all our questions within minutes from the moment we booked until the wedding day.
We live in Manchester and Craige was more than happy to travel to the lakes and couldn’t do enough for us.
Our website images arrived in less than 3 weeks and to say we love them is an understatement! Everyone commented on how great he was on the day and Craige even had selfies with our guests. I honestly can’t thank him enough for capturing so many precious memories for us.
You need to book Craige!!!

The perfect choice for our big day

Craige went above and beyond to make our happy day just that. He captured the heart and soul of the day and eased us in gently with a pre wedding shoot which was amazing. I absolutely recommend Craige for his talent and genial manner. 10/10

Great pictures and a stress free experience

Craige was very responsive to our enquiry and we booked after an initial discussion regarding our preferences and prices (very competitive). On the day Craige was friendly and professional, he mixed easily with the guests and got some great shots. We were very happy with the experience on the day and the results when they arrived! I would highly recommend Craige.

Mr and Mrs Gough

We chose Craige to be our photographer for our wedding after he was recommended to us. Craige listened to what we wanted to get out of the day with the more traditional style photographs. However captured the ‘in the moment’ style we also wanted. He took pictures of moments we may have missed if it wasn’t for Craige......From me (the Bride) getting ready, to James and his son together and then the sunset photos. They were all amazing. Craige understood who we were as a couple (engaging in a pre-shoot with us) to what best aspects of our venue he could use for great photographs. Craige was respectful of the fact this was our special day but made sure no one was missed out on being involved. Then to be able to view some of our initial special ‘snaps’ part way through our day was an added bonus! Craige you were fantastic! Thank you x

Truly captured our day1

Craige is a great guy, very friendly and professional from first meeting to getting our pictures. Our guests thought he was great, and not intrusive at all. We loved getting our pictures and we’ve had some fantastic comments too, I love looking at them!

Thank you Craig

A massive thank you to Craig!! He was very creative with his shots and so flexible on the day as we had to change locations last minute which he made no big deal of and found us another location that worked out perfectly!

Best photographer to have

Craig was completed professional and went to great lengths to capture the perfect picture we wanted. His photo styles were unique and we almost felt like we were ripped him off with the price we were quoted. Any further photo shoots we require further we will definitely be asking Craig. He felt like a part of our guests on the day which we will never forget.

Wedding photographer that captured the day!

I spoke with Craige before my wedding and he totally put us at ease with his knowledge and experience in the field, his portfolio is amazing and to be honest I didn’t think we would be able to financially cover the cost of such a professional service.

After we had talked about the itinerary for the wedding, we finally got around to talking about price and to my surprise for the package offered was reasonable. I was able to confirm booking with a deposit and pay the balance in instalments via the webpage which really worked for my situation at the time.

On the day Craige was really well presented, was great with guests and really captured every moment of my big day. Funny, non intrusive and always on the job which translated into brilliant pictures.

Just to note Craige also threw in a pre wedding shoot for the price, great guy.

I do highly recommend. Amazing service!
