An experienced and passionate photographer, Steven Bailey has been shooting weddings since 2007. His business was born out of a want to take the intimidation and discomfort out of wedding photography, something he’d been disappointed by in the run up to his own big day.
By approaching photography with a relaxed, transparent, and open attitude, Steven hopes to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. This, he believes, produces the best and most memorable shots from your big day – whether they’re candid or posed, they’ll be the ones you’ll treasure for years to come.
Steven knows photos aren’t everyone’s favourite part of a wedding: some guests are self-conscious, others too awkward, and some are just having too much fun to be bothered by cameras. To get his signature natural, intimate reportage-style photographs, Steven engages his subjects in a friendly way, trying to make photography just part of the fun on the day.
Included in every package is every picture taken on the day, both edited and unedited versions, as well as full copyright of those images. Other package add-ons include prints, photo albums and videography services. For the ultimate photography/entertainment mash-up, Steven also offers a photo booth service, which comes complete with a photographer, props and up to 150 prints and digital copies - perfect for thank you cards, or just having some fun!
As a talented and experienced photographer, Steven Bailey is in demand across the North of England. He covers weddings in Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Merseyside, and Nottinghamshire. To make sure he covers your big day, get in touch now.

An amazing photographer
Amazing photographer! Steven was just brilliant, he took all the photographs we wanted and more!!! He made us feel at ease and took some gorgeous photos! He’s brilliant with kids which was really important to us and took some amazing pictures that we will treasure forever! If you want a wedding photographer this is honestly the only person for the job, thank you Steven!!!”Sent on 25/11/2019
We had an amazing day and have so many fantastic photo’s to prove it!Sent on 25/11/2019
I thought your style was highly personal and you both put everyone at ease (including me!). You used Breadsall Priory’s backdrop dramatically and we have some truly unique shots as a result. You made the large group shots fun to be part of, unlike the many bossy wedding photographers we’ve all met! It was great to have Alex taking informal shots throughout the ceremony and reception.
