Award-Winning Leeds Wedding Photography
I’m Ben Cumming, a professional Yorkshire Wedding Photographer. Whilst I originally started shooting weddings in Leeds, I now take my wedding photography all around Yorkshire, Huddersfield, Sheffield, Barnsley and Wakefield too.
By the way, congratulations on your engagement!
Your wedding day is hopefully one of the most special and intimate days of your life. My aim as a West Yorkshire wedding photographer is to document that day giving you the opportunity to be taken back there every time you look at your wedding photographs.
I aim to capture all the little details that have made your wedding day so special and make those memories live on forever…
I’m a professional wedding photographer based in West Yorkshire, but able to travel further afield including South, East and North Yorkshire to photograph weddings.

What to expect from your Leeds Wedding Photographer
As a professional wedding photographer, I’m very adaptable in my approach.
Beforehand, we will meet to discuss your expectations and preferences, if you have any. If not, then not to worry, we can explore styles of wedding photography to find your taste and look through previous work to gauge exactly what it is you both like.
My job as your wedding photographer is to tell the story of your big day through my photography. I’ll ensure that your portfolio at the end of it all tells your story from all angles and narratives.
From the pride of the father of the bride walking you down the aisle to the smiling tears at the ceremony, I will be there to get it all.
I’ll strive to capture all the special moments from your wedding day in West Yorkshire through candid, natural moments and arranged wedding photography of family and friends. Again, it’s up to you. I’m here to advise you!
On top of this, I’ll make sure to snap your beautiful venue too so you can always remember exactly how it looked. I’ve been shooting weddings for over a decade so I know how to capture your treasured memories.
Camera shy? No worries, why not book in a pre-wedding shoot?
When I’ve photographed weddings I always have fun and I love it, but what makes my day even better is the process of getting to know everyone as a Leeds Wedding Photographer and making them feel comfortable around me.
As a family photographer with plenty of experience in the wedding industry, these pre-shoots are a useful and a special event in themselves.
We can book in a pre-wedding shoot to ensure you’re comfortable in front of me and my camera ahead of the special day. It’s also a great chance to test out different photography styles and see what’s your ‘best side’.
