Full Description
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 straight weddings, gay & lesbian 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!

A remarkable gift
You have given us a remarkable gift and we are both so so grateful. ~ Phil & Matt "Johnny shot both my wedding and recently my portrait for his ‘Offstage’ exhibition. He is so creative, professional and a thoroughly nice gentleman, that I enjoyed the process immensely. He clearly enjoys his talent with a camera, and it was lovely to be a part of it" ~ Matt

Our pictures are the cherry on the perfect cake an
"We can't recommend BeanPhoto enough. We instantly took a shine to Johnny as soon as we met him. He was so friendly, easy going, reliable and creative. We found out about Johnny via his website. When looking through the portfolios of work, we knew Johnny's style would be flexible and creative. As we don't take very good posing pictures, we knew he would take some amazing "in the moment" photos, and he did not disappoint. We got a real sense of the day when looking through our pictures. He captured so many emotional elements on what was quite a challenging day for many. Also, we felt our personalities were portrayed perfectly, a rarity when looking at friends wedding albums. We didn't see Johnny for most of the day as he blended into the crowd (of only 45 I might add, quite an accomplishment). We didn't feel like there was a camera shoved in our face for most of the day, which was a great weight off our mind. Overall, Johnny is exceptionally professional but also comfortable. The whole service provided was flawless. Our pictures are the cherry on the perfect cake and we will always cherish them. We can't thank you enough for capturing our day so beautifully."

What is your most memorable wedding?

A smile, and a so-what-if-it's-raining positive attitude.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

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!

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 No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

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!

Relaxed, creative, candid, natural, stylish

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!
