- Johnny Bean (Beanphoto) is a professional wedding photographer based in Morecambe in Lancashire and working across the North West. I have a degree in Photography and over 15 years of experience shooting weddings, and I pride myself on knowing when and where to be at just the right time to capture your big day memories. I specialize I specialize in shorter weddings (2-5 hours max). I shoot gay & lesbian weddings, straight weddings, elopements, woodland ceremonies, you name it - I'm there! I'm interested to know who YOU are, and not just where the venue is. I love to get to know a bit about my couples beforehand so I can reflect elements of their personality back in their images. In the past I've created a surprise wedding comic book for a couple who shared a love of comics, and presented a vintage-loving couple with their images on an old 3-D Viewmaster! All my clients receive their fully edited images in a unique presentation USB package, as well as an online gallery to share with friends and family, and maybe a surprise extra or two!

What is your most memorable wedding?
My own wedding of course! We were together for 25 years before getting married, Mrs Beanphoto wore raspberry red! We hired a holiday cottage for the reception, and guests camped in a nearby field looking out to the magnificent sunsets of Morecambe Bay. Amazing!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, creative, candid, natural, stylish
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm really proud of the positive feedback I get from my clients. It is so rewarding.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Look at each other, not at the camera!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
All the kids being given a personalised, labelled balloon to release and see whose went the furthest.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We arrange to meet, usually at the couples house, the wedding venue or maybe a cafe. We talk for an hour or so about them, their plans for the day, about me, and how I work, we look at some wedding albums and I answer any questions they have. Couples decide if they want to book me after the meeting, and when they do decide to proceed, I send over booking forms and arrange a payments plan to spread the cost. We'll often friend each other on facebook, maybe share some ideas on Pinterest, and generally keep in touch. A second meeting is often useful to go over timings and other details. After the day itself, the editing process normally takes 4-6 weeks, albums if required can be discussed at any point.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
You can have a lot of demands on your time on your wedding day, but always, always plan some time out for a couple shoot, and get at least one cracking photo of the two of you together alone. A shot that sums up your connection is what I'm always looking for.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I was once asked to take a shot of the two best men in the style of The Kray Twins! I was happy to oblige, and it's one of my favourites!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A smile, and a so-what-if-it's-raining positive attitude.
Describe how you got into photography.
My dad was an amateur photographer soI was introduced to photography very early on. I learnt on film cameras, did my degree in photography and just haven't ever stopped taking pictures really - it's a great job!
