Wedding and Portrait Photography in York by John Kirkwood Photography

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Stamford Bridge, just outside the historic City of York. My artistic background is in painting; I am influenced by great artists like Rembrandt and aim to capture the "real person" in my portraits; when I shoot a wedding, it is the fun, happiness, excitement and also the tenderness of the great day.

I will visit you well before the wedding to talk about the shots you want, give advice and arrange a pre-wedding shoot. Afterwards, I'll help you choose the pictures for your album,and the album itself, design the layout and present you with a record of your wedding day to treasure.

I shoot with equipment which will ensure the very highest quality. Log on to the gallery to see my work.
