I’m Steve Yates, a Lake District based wedding photographer. I specialise in two main styles of wedding photography. I take natural storytelling images, capturing the important moments and expressions as they happen. I also do beautiful and dramatic couple shots, making the most of the stunning landscapes and venues we have here in the Lake District and Cumbria. I love capturing emotions and natural moments and creating simple, beautiful images that stand the test of time.
I have worked at venues all over the Lake District and Cumbria, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Northumbria and the Borders, photographing around 700 weddings and over 1000 portraits. I love what I do, more than ever, and I would be privileged to capture and retell the story of your day.
Weddings are one of our major and pivotal family milestones; they bring everyone together and reaffirm family bonds and lifelong friendships. My job as your wedding photographer is to capture these moments and the joy and emotion of the day, unobtrusively but beautifully.
My wedding photography is mainly observational & documentary throughout the day time. I do the family and group shots in about 20 minutes. I like to keep it simple, with a minimum of fuss, by sticking to immediate family and the wedding party.
Then, since you have chosen to get married in the Lake District and assuming to wish me to, I will create some stunning images of you both using the landscape in a creative and contemporary style. If you choose not to do this then no problem at all, simply carry on celebrating with your family and friends! I will carry on shooting what happens, with a 5-10 minute mini portrait shoot just to make sure we have some lovely images of you both on your own!
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Steve Yates
My main focus when shooting your wedding is for you to have had an amazing day without having to worry about the photography at all. I specialise in natural, relaxed photos, so my style is mainly documentary throughout the daytime. I like to get any group photos out of the way with a minimum of fuss, usually it'll take about 20 minutes. Be assured that at every wedding I shoot I am doing my utmost to ensure that my couple has a fantastic reminder of their special day!

What is your most memorable wedding?
It was a very small wedding with 13 people at Wasdale Head at the end of winter. That couple had met there and got engaged there so it was a really significant place for them, and they were so lovely!
