Being a wedding photographer is truly the most romantic, rewarding job in the world. Every event tells a fabulous story, there are moments of great significance, times when everybody is either welling up with tears or bursting with joy. There are times of quiet reflection, and times of wild exuberance. There’s love, friendship, beauty, family. It really is a privilege to be allowed behind the scenes, with a close-up view as such an extraordinary day unfolds. So at every wedding I have the same goal: to tell the story of this one special day, joyfully, tenderly and honestly.

Our work has got noticed too and have been nominated for the County Brides Weddings Awards 2018 by our clients for exceeding their expectations.

Experienced wedding photographer, I guarantee to provide you with an album of images you will cherish forever. I can adapt my technique and approach depending on your needs: it’s your day, and the photographs should reflect your personal style as strongly as the event itself. Before the wedding day, I will make sure I fully understand the timeline, and any special requests you may have, so that you can spend your day enjoying yourself with your guests without worrying about whether I am capturing the images you want.

On the day itself, I focus on picturing natural candid moments alongside classic and creatively composed portraits. My approach to portrait-taking is to create a relaxed atmosphere, ensuring everybody looks at ease and at their best. Otherwise, I let the events unfold, without interfering, and shoot it as it happens, capturing all the drama, as well as the smaller, spontaneous moments that really make your day come alive. I am highly technically skilled, and have top-of-the-range modern equipment, so can deal with any last minute challenges we may encounter, such as suddenly changing weather or fluctuating light!

(And the small print: I am fully insured, DBS checked and HMRC registered, meaning you can have complete piece of mind, knowing you are dealing with a legitimate, established business.)

If you are planning a wedding please get in touch. I would love to be a part of it. For our brochure please use this link:

Phil is a superb photographer and literally will do anything to get 'The Shot'.. Most photographers I've seen are quite stagnant in the photos they take but Phil is always pushing for versatility and excellence for all of his clients. This business has grown from Passion not profit, and that shows throughout. No problem recommending Phil..!

For anyone looking for a wedding photographer here's your man.. Amazing, faultless service from start to finish. From our engagement shoot, countless emails and the day itself he was friendly, professional and put us at ease. We received the pictures and they are exceptional, beyond anything we could have wished for! He captured the day perfectly and we couldn't be happier! Mr and Mrs Farrand, 01.08.17

If you looking for beautiful photos, a talented, quirky and reliable photographer with a creative eye then stop looking and get booking. Phil takes great care in getting the perfect shots and has an easy going but pro active manner on the day ... he makes the photos fun and interacts with your guests and even provides a little humour without taking over the day. We love our photos Phil - thank you. As always I will be recommending you in the future.

Hands down the best person I could have possibly found for our wedding.
Had a meeting to discuss things to start and knew this was gonna be good.
Eased us in with some engagement photos which were amazing.
Couldn’t have asked for a better man for the day.... did the most amazing job, every guest commmented on how amazing he was.
Was overwhelmed by the first photos the next day.... WOW. WOW. WOW!!!
The rest followed promptly and we were so happy!!!
I’ve heard so many horror stories of ruined photos, bad memories and long delays to receive anything.

Do not hesitate!!!! Book now!!!!

Hands down THE BEST photographer I’ve ever come across... His energy and passion is infectious ( but not overbearing) and it’s always evident that he genuinely wants his customers to have the very best experience on the day and to produce the kind of photos that make you say “Wow”.. I was lucky enough to have Philip shoot my wedding and I could not have been more impressed by his professionalism, eye for detail and natural ability to identify unique and artistic opportunities. The added bonus of using Philip is that he a down to earth and genuinely great guy.. He was a calming influence for me on the day and all of my guests loved him! Cannot recommend him highly enough and want to thank him again for the absolutely amazing job he did!!!

What a passionate guy who really wants to get the best shots! Philip did an engagement shoot for myself and my partner in Bolton. Philip scoped out some places for shoots and at first I must admit I couldn't see what he could. It was just a side street to me. But when I saw the photos I finally saw the vision Phil had all along and I was thrilled. Phil knew exactly the look I wanted, was very professional and so enthusiastic. He give good directions to make the most of the shoot and knowing we were both a bit camera shy Phil took the time to talk us through some good poses that would work well and be easy to replicate on our wedding shoot. Very much looking forward to working with Philip again at our wedding in January!

Philip Burke Photography Q&A

Philip Burke Photography Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

With every wedding, we get absorbed in the romance of the day, see the joys, the tears and the fears. To be able to capture this and freeze this in time is a privilege indeed.

What inspired you to start your own business?

It all started with one friend begging me to photograph her wedding. Since then, hundreds of hours of training, many thousands of pounds of investment and a huge will to be the best has led me here today. I have been lucky enough to be nominated for a regional award and have been published in Hello, O.K magazine, Daily Mail, The Sun, The Mirror and 26 other publications.

Why should our clients choose you?

Firstly they know I can effectively communicate which is vital for the day. A sense of humour and light joviality to help capture them natural smiles. A person who is not invasive and will be like a ninja in the shadows to all the day to flow :D
