Sheffield Wedding Photographer, John Mottershaw

Hello. I’m John, an experienced Sheffield wedding photographer. Thank you so much for visiting my website. 

First of all, huge congratulations on your engagement!

I hope you’re both really enjoying putting together your perfect wedding day. There’s so much to think about, but getting the right photographer can make such a difference. Whilst making the wedding just right and individual for yourselves, you can take lots of pleasure in choosing your photographer.

Perhaps you’ll see some ideas on these pages as I’ve photographed some amazing couples in Sheffield and all over Derbyshire and surrounds. Some nice stories await you on the blog with weddings that are possibly not unlike yours.  Being put together with some help from the couples themselves, I hope you’ll enjoy reading them – please have a look. Being perhaps longer than most, I hope these blog posts might warrant sitting down with a glass of wine for a good read and a look through the photographs. With stories of the weddings of such lovely people, I think you’ll enjoy them.

And if you want to read what couples have said about their photographs, have a look here.

For a bit more about me as a wedding photographer and as a person, please have a look at this page.

Do feel free to just pop your name(s) down here and I’ll get straight back to you.

So professional and easy to work with. He made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera.

“My husband and I were so happy with John as our wedding photographer. He was so professional and easy to work with, and he made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera.

We loved that he took a lot of candid pictures, so we were able to capture the real emotions of the day. The end results were absolutely stunning, and we will cherish these photos forever.”

Telling Your Wedding Story

As a Sheffield wedding photographer also covering Debyshire and all over the UK, I get invited to photograph a wide variety of weddings. From the gentle and easy-going to the large and more formal, no two weddings are ever the same. The common thread though is that I’m lucky to genuinely have the most lovely couples, all of whom are looking for a wonderful and happy story of their beautiful day. An enjoyable and quite informal documentary of their day.

I meet people who are looking for someone with the photojournalism skills needed for unposed wedding photography – the “moments”.  But also they want someone who has the experience and personality to do portraits and groups beautifully, naturally and enjoyably, with real rapport, no matter how large the group. Whilst being discreet, courteous and friendly, all taken with the smile of someone who loves their job!

So, a gentle mix of some posed portraits and groups – enjoyable for everyone – along with plenty of unposed natural moments.

Perhaps that sounds like you? If so I do hope you’ll enjoy having a look through these pages and let me know what you think.

SO DISCRETE AND PROFESSIONAL THROUGHOUT THE DAY...

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being at our wedding to capture all the special moments. You were so discrete and professional throughout the day but also helped to make us both feel at ease in front of the camera.

Everyone at the wedding commented on how nice, calm, organised and professional you were. We knew you were the right person for us but having you there was far more than what we had ever imagined.

We can’t thank you enough.”

A Sheffield Wedding Photographer: a Little Bit of Background

Having had the huge pleasure and privilege of being the photographer at quite a few hundred weddings in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Buxton, all across the Derbyshire Peak District and throughout the UK, photographing weddings is a joy.

With some wonderful venues including Woodthorpe Hall, Losehill House, Hargate Hall, Peak Edge Hotel, Kenwood Hall Hotel, Thornbridge to name just a few of them. It really doesn’t matter if you’ve managed to find somewhere that I haven’t previously photographed, wherever it may be in the country, as I would always spend some time checking it out with fresh eyes.

A qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photography for some years, I represent the fourth generation of my family to work as professional photographers: a family who have been in photographic processing, film-making as well as being commercial, portrait and Sheffield wedding photographers since 1870.
