Ally Hedayati

Your Manchester Wedding Photographer

Hi, I’m Ally, a wedding photographer based in Manchester, UK. I live with my lovely fiancée Lucy and we have three amazing children, Ethan, Layla and our little boy Tommy. I am based just outside Manchester but travel up and down the country and abroad shooting weddings.

My love for photography began when I started seeing the world. I spent a full crazy summer in Ibiza with my friends back in the year 2000, I would document every day on a cheap camera and a big old fashioned camcorder, and because we didn’t have a TV we would watch all our crazy days back on the little screen on the camcorder. Since meeting Lucy we have traveled to some incredible places together. We have looked out on the most amazing landscapes and scenery but what I’m most drawn to is people. I love expressions, a look, a smile, a tear, a thought, a fleeting moment … a story!

When it comes to wedding photography I love the natural shots. I’m as unobtrusive as possible capturing your story as it unfolds, moment to moment, and creatively. I’m always looking out for those quirky moments that always happen at a wedding. There are the “must get” shots like cutting the cake and exchanging the rings etc, but that’s not what my photography is about, I prefer to look out for those moments that make your wedding unique, and together make your story different.

I get on with my couples and families so well and most of them become my friends.

Inspiration for my craft comes from many sources, but music and film hold a special place in my heart. They provide the ever-changing soundtrack to my life. And, well, if you ever fancy a chat about The Sopranos, I’m your guy. I’ve watched every episode at least twenty times, so you could say I’m a obsessed with it! (definitely the best TV show ever made!)

I’m also a massive foodie and love to cook and eat out. It’s my aim to find the best Ramen in every city I visit.

So, if you’re looking for a wedding photographer who cares about capturing the real, the authentic, and the quirky moments that happen at every wedding, I’d love to hear from you!
