Hello…I’m Ian France and I am a Wedding Photographer in Staffordshire, and thank you for looking at my website… Weddings are photographed exclusively by myself, and coverage is usually a subtle mix of photo journalism and artistic / creative wedding photography. I have a “no cheese” policy but we do have some fun along the way. The feedback I get most frequently is that I made everyone feel so comfortable, and blended into the wedding. The single most important thing I pride myself on is being able to use creativity to make your wedding photography personal to you while capturing the story of the day. Art has always been a passion so I always try to present something unique for your wall by constantly experimenting with new techniques, ideas and a little magic. Above all the wedding photography menu says one thing “Customer Satisfaction” and you will not find the same blend of quality, creativity and personality anywhere else. Now although I’m very modest and would never agree openly, some people say that I am Staffordshire’s best Wedding Photographer ( blush ), I just say that my job is awesome, and am indeed very fortunate to earn a living as a full time professional wedding photographer, its something I enjoy so much…. I guess that energy shines through every time I pick up a camera.
My approach is based totally towards your comfort, even the wedding images that are choreographed will look and feel natural. Nothing is forced or over the top and the best photos come when we least expect it, not only from a documentary point of view, but also from a creative photography perspective.
Nothing is pre-conceived and I don't copy other wedding photographers, just genuine creativity for each and every Bride & Groom's special day. Your photographs are a unique to you, your wedding and your wedding venue. I pride myself on delivering something different for each of my awesome wedding clients.
When it comes to viewing your wedding photographs, nothing can beat physically holding a beautiful wedding album. Whilst many wedding photographers will now offer digital only photography packages, we believe this may not be the most sensible option ... read more about album prices here
