the humanity of the moment."

Yorkshire Wedding Photography  |  Sam Chipman Photography

memories that last a lifetime

Wedding Photographer covering Yorkshire, the Pennines, and the Lake District; including Keighley, Leeds, Skipton, York, Harrogate, Ilkley, and travelling nationwide.

The flowers will wilt, the wedding cake will be eaten, but your photographs will last a lifetime.


I know how important it is for a couple to get the right wedding photographer. You're picking a photographer not just to take photos, but to capture memories that last a lifetime. You've planned this for years. That's a big deal.

But breathe. You're in the right place, I promise.

I know a lot of people are not overly fond of having their photos taken - heck, I'm the same. So I like to keep things relaxed when taking my couples away for their portraits. I give some direction but won't spend hours posing. I like to keep my images as real as possible, but am not afraid to capture something more contemporary, cinematic, and Hollywood glamour when the mood strikes.

I'm all about storytelling, capturing those candid and real moments. The tears, the laughter, the joy, the tenderness. The little moments that you do not see in what can be a whirlwind of a day. Your story captured in that moment and preserved forever for you to look back on.

I want you to choose me because you like my style and approach. Because you feel relaxed on your wedding day knowing that you can look forward to seeing wedding photos that will bring the memories of your big day flooding back. Because you know you'll be desperate to share the images with your nearest and dearest. Because you want to look back on your wedding photographs with a fondness for years to come.

Weddings are amazing. I get as excited about your wedding day as you do, and will be there with you every step of the way.

So for a Yorkshire wedding photographer who will work with you to capture your big day in all it's glory, get in touch and let's have a chat about your perfect wedding photography package - I can't wait to hear from you.

Hi, I'm Sam

I'm a storyteller


It's your big day. You don't just want any old photographer, you want a storyteller. Someone who will capture those candid and real moments - you want memories that last a lifetime.


My wedding photography packages feel timeless yet stylish. I shoot in a relaxed and documentary style, whilst getting those mantlepiece cinematic type posed shots.


I am lucky enough to have one of the best jobs in the world - capturing people's love stories, and gifting them memories that they can cherish for years to come.

I'm Yorkshire based, God's Own Country. I regularly shoot in Leeds, York, Harrogate, Ilkley and elsewhere in the surrounding areas, but I am happy to travel throughout the UK, and would love to shoot destination weddings should you be getting married abroad.

When I haven't got a camera in hand and am not off searching for interesting light, you'll often find me drinking Yorkshire tea, wearing flat caps, and watching cricket. Typical Yorkshireman some might say.


Yorkshire is the most wonderful place, but I won't hold it against you if you reside elsewhere - so if you are looking for a wedding photographer, in Yorkshire or elsewhere in the country or across the world, you're in the right place.
