Honest, natural, real, the true story of the day.
That's how I work.
Manchester Wedding Photographer
I am Dominic Crolla, a Manchester wedding photographer, and I specialise in documentary wedding photography. I photograph weddings throughout the UK and abroad.
My style as a wedding photographer is to capture the true story of the day. You can see examples in my wedding photography gallery. To achieve this goal I use the ambient light as much as I can simply because the images look more natural and it also helps me to be unobtrusive and not get in the way! It’s your wedding day so I want to be in the background as much as possible. I also have my own studio and use artificial light week after week but, in my opinion, wedding photography is best photographed as 'real' as possible. I will narrate your wedding with beautiful and natural images so that you can look back in years to come and smile.
Feel free to have a look through my website so that you can get familiar with my storytelling style and if it's the natural, informal approach that you're looking for on your wedding day then please get in touch to check my availability.
Below is a small portfolio of my documentary wedding photography. They are some of my favourite images but I've also selected them as I think they really encapsulate my natural, 'in the moment' wedding photography style.

My Wedding Photography Style
Documentary wedding photography is about capturing the day as a true and accurate reflection of how it was. So that you can look back on your wedding in years to come and fill your mind with that same atmosphere again. I create timeless natural photos alongside portraits of the happy couple with their friends and family, but it's the real action shots that will always stay fresh and make you smile every time you open that wedding album.

We seriously can't thank Dom enough we're so glad he photographed our wedding. We're also privileged at the fact he's based in the north west and travelled all the way down here to Oxford. The pictures are perfect, we are so incredibly happy with them and you're very talented at what you do. Our house will be turned into a gallery!Kay and Danny
Dom did our wedding photography on 30/12/16 and we could not fault him. He met us at the venue weeks before the wedding to see what we wanted and on the day he was fantastic, friendly and very organised! Would definitely recommend him to anybody I know looking for a photographer!! Thanks Dom!!Danielle & Adam
We want to thank Dom for doing a fabulous job at our wedding. The pictures are amazing, he's a great guy to get on with and he was great with the kids. Thank you for all your hard work Dom!The Genovese Family.
Dom recently photographed our wedding and from first meeting him, he understood what we wanted and did exactly that on the day. The results were outstanding and we can't recommend him enough.Michelle and Wes
I have been a photographer for 9 years, earning a living from it for 7 years with weddings being my main source of income for 6 of them. I also have a studio where I do actor's headshots and many other portraits including children, family and newborn shoots. I have worked with publishing companies doing fashion photography and still life for their magazines but it doesn't give me the thrill that a wedding does. I have weddings at the top of my list because I get that 'buzz' searching for a unique and beautiful image. Freezing a moment that can never be repeated or recaptured. There's always something different to shoot at a wedding and with my natural style I believe I excel in this area. It makes me smile when I see them on my computer and i smile even more when a couple get in touch to tell me how happy they are with their pictures.MORE ABOUT ME
