Who I Am.

I’m Joshua Wyborn and Im a creative wedding photographer. I’ve been taking photos for a long time; ever since I was knee-high to a tripod and got my shutter finger on my father’s camera. I’m a bit taller now, 6’5”, which gives me a unique perspective on things. I’m also colour blind so I tend to see things in terms of tone and shade rather than saturation of colour. I can turn my lens to anything, be it commercial, fine art, landscapes or creative wedding photography. I know my ISO from my elbow and I’ve got the certificates to prove it.

What I Do.

I wouldn’t describe myself as a traditional wedding photographer. I don’t consult ‘The Handbook of Wedding Photography Clichés’ beforehand. I favour a more observational, creative, documentary-style approach rather than the stiff formality of endless group shots. My eyes will be peeled for those unexpected moments that can make a day. My shots are unposed, candid, spontaneous. They are moments captured rather than created and will tell the story of your big day in a naturalistic way. You’ll hardly know I’m there as I move around like an f-stop ninja clicking away like my life depends upon it. But the focus will always be on you and your guests.

How I Do It.

On the day I’ll arrive early. I may even have visited beforehand to get the lay of the land if time permitted. And I’ll stay as late as you need me to. I’ll be nervous; not as nervous as you two, obviously, but I know it’s your special day and I want you to be happy with the shots I take. It’s a big responsibility and one I take seriously.

Even after shooting more than 150 weddings, I still get butterflies in my tummy until the first click of the shutter because I want to get things right. At some point during the day I like to spend a bit of time with you both; away from the crowds, away from distractions, to give you some breathing space and to take the opportunity for some relaxed, informal shots. Or, and, if you wish we can create some beautiful fine art couple portraits that only you will have.

Carlisle, Cumbria & Me.

As you’ve probably gathered by now, my name is Joshua Wyborn, but you can call me Josh now we’ve got to know each other a little. I’m a creative wedding photographer based in Carlisle, Cumbria, although that wasn’t my intention. The Cumbria bit, not the photographer bit. I came here in 2009 to study photography at The University of Cumbria and was so captivated by the awe-inspiring beauty of the Lake District that I decided to make it my home. So if you need a Cumbria wedding photographer, or an anywhere-you-like wedding photographer for that matter, I’m your chap. My passport is up to date too, if you’re planning to get married abroad.

If you want to contact me about your big day or any other plans you believe I can help with please feel free to. If you’re interested in my wedding photography and would like to look at packages and bespoke weddings please head over to my pricing page. I look forward to hearing from you.
