Jillian Hartley Wedding Photography specialises in contemporary, stylish wedding photography at affordable prices, guaranteed to capture beautiful lasting memories of your wedding day.  Based in Greater Manchester, wedding photography coverage extends across the North West and the Midlands including Lancashire, Cheshire, Liverpool and Merseyside, Derbyshire and Staffordshire.

A little bit about me…  My name is Jill and I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember.  I took my hobby to the next level around 10 years ago when I invested in a better camera and began to undertake formal photography courses.  Soon, friends began to ask me to shoot at their weddings and parties and that is where my passion grew.  It’s an absolute pleasure to work with people on the most special day of their lives and capture those unforgettable moments on your wedding day.

My priority is to ensure the big day remains all about you.  I endeavour to remain unobtrusive and highly professional and will capture your wedding day as it happens, moment by moment, to tell your story.  I certainly will not be bossing you around all day and stealing the bride and groom away for long periods of time whilst family and friends are elsewhere!  Many clients do want a few formal group shots, but I aim to get those done quickly so you can get back to celebrating.  Whilst you are enjoying yourselves, I tend to keep a low profile, capturing special moments with zoom lenses from a distance.  You might not even realise I’m snapping away!   These shots are often the most natural, capturing all the genuine laughter, hugs and tears!

We would like to say a massive thank you for the amazing job you did with our wedding photography.  You have an incredible talent for capturing perfect moments and spotting superb photo opportunities.  Your friendliness and professionalism was noted not just by us but by all our guests”.
