Thank you for visiting my website. I’m a wedding photographer based in the North West of England but happy to travel nationally and internationally on request. If you are considering me as your wedding photographer, take a look at my wedding portfolio galleries. Inside you’ll see shots more expressive than the ‘strictly formals’. I usually shoot with a second photographer which enables me to capture not only those formals, but the reportage events – things you wont see as the bride and groom such as parents quietly sobbing with joy, toddlers sleeping, bridesmaids giggling, page boys yawning, kids sliding on the dance floor and much more! Your guests make much of the atmosphere of the day and these shots expand on your memories, making great additions to any photo album.

Planning for a wedding is stressful enough, not to mention expensive. Choosing me should make you confident of affordable, quality coverage at a cost that won’t break the bank. At the end of your wedding day you will be glowing, ready for your honeymoon and looking forward to seeing your photographs on your return. From that point you’ll have the pleasure of choosing which photographs to go into your album and which image to have printed onto canvas to hang onto your wall. I’m an active member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers). I am also fully-insured to give peace of mind to my clients. I am also a founding member of the ABWB (Association of British Wedding Businesses), an industry body that supports the wedding professional community within the UK.

About Stuart McLernon

    We hired Stuart as our wedding photographer and him and Rick (second shooter) were absolutely incredible all day. All our guests were at ease around them, everyone was laughing and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere they created. We’ve had guests say that they actually forgot they were there, which shows just how comfortable they make everyone feel. This in turn has lead to some of the most incredible photos from our wedding day, so many sneaky candid shots that both me and my husband love as well as our guests. The happiness radiates through every single photo. We cannot recommend them enough, Stuart was fantastic leading up to the wedding, holding pre wedding meetings, talking through the structure and poses to get the best photos as well as being someone to share any concerns about the day with as his advice was helpful and ease the worries. Photos were sent through before the 4 week suggestion Stuart gave my husband. Each photo is incredible and we sent hours going through them all. Absolutely phenomenal job, every photo speaks a thousand words. Thank you so much Stuart & Rick, we are beyond grateful for the outstanding job you did.

    Thanks so much for being part of our wedding and taking some stunning photos, we will be forever grateful when we look back and remember our day. Thanks to Rick for not only taking pics, hiding behind trees with huge lights but also running round after our 4 year old when he kept running off. The pics are epic and I can’t wait to get them printed and hung for all to see. Thanks again

    More than just a photographer! We booked Stuart and Richard after trawling through countless messages from photographers after using a wedding website to find a replacement photographer short notice. Stuart stood out from all the others with his straight to the point approach- perfect for us! We booked him straight away and explained our situation of postponing our wedding due to covid and the passing of my father unexpectedly. Despite eloping we’d decided to have a wedding blessing a year later with family when the restrictions were lifted. Understandably there were aspects of our day that were super important not only to capture our love with our closest people but also sentimental moments. The attention to detail was captured in the build up to the ceremony and throughout, we love our photographs. I didn’t even see the majority of the photographs being taken, this was exactly what we wanted, to trust the right photographs were being taken without us dictating or barking orders on the day. This allowed us to enjoy our special day and not worry about anything. Stuart’s down to earth friendly personality not only put me at ease but also the bridal party, groomsman and guests. It felt like both Stuart and Richard were old friends and they captured special moments throughout the day with ease. We didn’t originally want formal photos due to absent family members but following Stuart’s experienced suggestions we decided to go ahead and we are so grateful for the gentle push, we would of regretted not doing so! So in summary, if you want down-to-earth, quality photographers with an eye for detail then M-Print Digital Imagery are your guys! The only issue you may have is deciding which photos to have in an album as there are so many amazing photos to choose from. Thanks again Stuart and Richard!

    Stuart and Richard were amazing. Right from our first meeting with Stuart, he put us at ease and went through everything we wanted for our wedding day. They were both so lovely and blended in well with our guests. The pictures are fantastic and we are really pleased with them all. We've ordered a photobook and can't wait to see the photos in there. Would definitely recommend. Great photography and great guys.

    I had a great experience with Stuart and his associates Rick and Adam for our wedding photos! He was amazing from the start, approachable, prompt in replying to our quote and enquiries and extremely accommodating given the fact we moved our date 5 times because of the covid pandemic. We had great fun during our planning meetings and on the day itself. He helped both my husband and I feel relaxed on our day and they captured some amazing photos of a very memorable day! I look forward to booking with him again for our anniversary reception next year!

    Stuart and Adam have been brilliant and professional throughout! We were nervous at first, particularly me as I get scared being the centre of attention, but Stuart and Adam made us feel at ease. The photos taken were fantastic with a mixture of natural and formal shots with everyone capturing the highlights of the day. We cannot stop looking at the photos, they look amazing! Also, wedding planning hasn't been easy for us with most things organized last minute due to lockdown and our busy working life, however Stuart was very accommodating with our requests and late booking. Highly recommended and thank you so much!

    We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photos from M print, I can’t stop looking at them. The build up to our wedding was difficult for both personal reasons and Covid but Stuart was incredibly accommodating and patient with any requests and fully understood what our photos would mean to us. His style was perfect for us..a lovely balance of natural shots and formal shots and he isn’t afraid to be creative. He’s captured some key moments perfectly and some moments without us realising which have been lovely to see when we’ve looked through our photos. He got the best out of everyone on the day and made everyone feel comfortable and enjoy the day. We can’t recommend him highly enough!

    Genuinely can't recommend Stuart and his team enough for their extremely professional service on our wedding day. I personally hate having my picture taken and find it to be an uncomfortable experience. I was helped to feel relaxed early on as everything was well planned out and stuart really helped to put me at ease which is evident in our photos. I really would like to thank stuart and his team for our photos that me & my new wife will cherish forever. we have had nothing but positive comments on our photos since we started showing them off to our family and friends.

    We are totally delighted by our wedding album. Stuart our photographer came to see us twice before the day which prepared us ahead of the day. He had a vision of how things would go and he put us so much at ease. On the day there were two photographers Stuart and Dave. They were so entertaining and relaxing making all the guests relax too. As a result the photos are brilliant and are set out in the album to tell the story of the day, which they do perfectly. Technically the pictures are breathtakingly clear with beautiful colouring. The atmosphere of the day is captured perfectly. The pictures are printed on high quality photo paper and the album is really high quality. We could not be happier with the results. We would recommend them to anybody without any hesitation. Christine and Joe Riley
