Documentary Wedding Photography
The emotion and atmosphere of your wedding day without interference, direction or instructions….
Photographs that tell your story…. Remember the day forever.
Welcome to Adam Riley Photography. I’m a Cheshire wedding photographer that specialises in Reportage Wedding Photography, documenting natural moments that tell the story of your wedding day, allowing you to treasure the memories forever.
Known as reportage or documentary wedding photography. I capture your wedding day with a storytelling approach, my style is unobtrusive and focuses on emotion and personality. Documenting events ‘fly on the wall’, I deliver images that are close to the action without imposing my presence. I believe weddings should be about enjoying the day with friends and family, and not an endless number of posed shots.
Please browse my wedding portfolio, and see my most recent work on my documentary wedding photography blog and let the photographs speak for themselves. To see a selection of complete weddings, or for a chat to discuss your requirements, please do not hesitate to contact me. All wedding packages include full day documentary coverage, a video slideshow and all edited photographs provided to you in high resolution format. Based in the North West of England, I provide wedding photography in Cheshire, Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire. However I regularly travel throughout the UK.
“Fresh tears came to my eyes upon first viewing these photos… I still can’t understand how one person (and I mean this in the kindest possible way) can be in the background, at the same time as being everywhere – and at every significant moment. You were as unobtrusive as we could wish for, and practically invisible throughout the whole day, yet you still managed to capture some of the most intimate and revealing moments of our wedding day… moments which, given how quickly the whole all passes by, I had perhaps glossed over at the time. All those little reminders you managed to capture allow us to re-live the day in a way I hadn’t dreamed we would be able to, so thank you.” - Katie and Steven - married at Middleton Lodge
Based in Cheshire, on the outskirts of Manchester, Adam lives with his wife Laura and documents weddings throughout the UK. When not shooting weddings, Adam loves to travel and is rarely without a camera – often immersed in street photography.
Awarded winner of Professional Photography Magazine ’Reportage Wedding Photographer of the year’ in 2012. His relaxed demeanour and unique ability to capture the emotion of the wedding day are in high demand. Adam is also an award winning member of the Wedding Photojournalistic Association.
