Lake District wedding photographer

Love, Laughter & Emotion

Lakes & Mountains

Hi, come in, have a look around, I hope you like my style and enjoy my images.

I’m Steve Yates, a professional  photographer shooting weddings & portraits from my Keswick studio, which I have had for 17 years!  My lake district wedding photography has always been  observational & documentary throughout the day, with a splash of creative, landscape based portraiture.  What this actually means from your point of view is that you can relax and enjoy your day celebrating your wedding with friends and family, I’ll work in the background capturing the joy and emotion of your day. You don’t need to spend hours doing endless groups, you won’t need to keep stopping what your doing or be constantly interrupted with demands for a picture of this and that. Your only job is to make your vows and enjoy the entire day, mine is to observe and capture the spirit & emotions of the day for you to relive over and over again every time you look at your photographs.
