Professional Photography – Weddings, Portraits, Events

Hi, my name is Joe Topping, I am a photographer in Southport and I photograph weddings in the north-west of England

My photographic style and approach

My style is a mix of documentary wedding photography, photojournalism and a touch of creative portraiture. I  capture what happens on your wedding day without interfering or getting in the way too much. I feel the best photographs of people are the ones where they are unaware of the camera. There is nothing worse than waiting around to have your photo taken. I keep posing to a minimum and I try to capture multiple angles quickly to give you more variety.

I am always happy to take on small weddings, especially with couples who have a relaxed idea of how they would like their wedding. Although elopements in the UK are not so common, I’d like to take on a few of those at some point. One of my favorite places in the UK is the lake district in Cumbria, so if you are planning on getting married up north please get in touch!

My wedding photography prices are competitive and start from £695 for half-day wedding coverage and £995 for full-day coverage. This includes a USB of high resolution digital images from your wedding day. Custom packages are available for smaller weddings, elopements, winter, weekday and ceremony-only weddings. Let me know what your wedding plans are and we will take it from there. Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions about my services, I’m happy to help.
