West Yorkshire Bradford & Leeds, Wedding Photographer Michelle Heseltine

Our philosophy

We pride ourselves in providing a high quality professional and personal Wedding service.

Photographs usually play a big part of a wedding. It's really important for you to feel comfortable on your wedding day and know your photographer...

This is one reason why we meet with all our wedding couples before the "big" day. We'll visit your chosen venue, so we can get a feel for the place and explore the best photographic opportunities beforehand. If you want a number of formal wedding group photos; a list of family members will be collated prior to your wedding day, so any pressure for you to remember is eliminated. I'll develop a time plan so that everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

Wedding photography can include bridal preparations, ceremony, reception and afternoon/evening celebrations. Each package has a time scale included in the price, if you require extra hours of photography that's no problem, the day is exclusive to you. Afternoon/evening coverage often features the speeches, cutting of the cake and the first dance. The images taken at this time of the wedding are more relaxed and candid, even if you have selected a more formal approach during the day.  Also just as important, our aim is to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible to give a stress free day to make it a day to remember.

Primarily a "people" photographer, our clients warm very quickly to our friendly approach and style of working.

It's great that many couples stay in touch long after their wedding day and we continue to record further momentous occasions of their family life... one bride even decided to join the team.

Principal photographer, Michelle Heseltine was creative from the start, commercial printer, production co-ordinator, passionate traveller, but above all photographer.
She has been connected with photography for as long as she can remember,
at first for fun, then for passion.... Her enthusiasm overflows.

... She is unable to imagine a world without pictures.

After more than 10 years of professional photographic practice she decided to challenge her mind and embark upon a degree in photography. Qualifying with first class honours she went self employed! ... and has never looked back!

Michelle describes herself as a “people photographer”. In addition to her wedding photography, she has strong associations with the world of theatre and publicity; working on such projects as Les Miserables, Copacabana, Oliver & Barnum.


 “Each day of photography is different. The ever changing assignments we photograph give us a fresh approach in what we shoot. Weddings are a joyful time. We love to meet new people and to create photographs that help you relive your most special moments and enhance your memories”.

Imagine a life without pictures? This lifelong photographer can't.
