Stewart Barker Photography

Wedding Photography that’s Bright, Natural, and most importantly, Fun! My relaxed and natural approach to wedding photography means you won’t be standing in front of the camera for hours on end, awkwardly holding an uncomfortable pose! Instead, I take a way more relaxed approach to posing, focusing instead on the interaction between couples.

I’m Stewart, a wedding photographer based in York, but I cover all of Yorkshire, the Lake District, the North East, and around Manchester. Weddings are supposed to be fun, the best party of your life! Which is why I think your wedding day shouldn’t revolve around your photos. And it’s why I photograph weddings differently. Yes I’ll be at your wedding to get all the amazing photos you want, but I’m also there to have fun, celebrate with you, and capture all of the beautiful moments & natural interactions!

Whether you’re getting married at a historic venue in York, a gorgeous barn in the Yorkshire Countryside, or a stunning farm nestled in the Lake District fells, I’d love to hear from you about all of your amazing wedding plans.


We booked Stewart for our wedding photography after seeing his work on Instagram. Our wedding package included an engagement photoshoot (we upgraded to the deluxe shoot) which we decided to do a year after our engagement. My fiancé and I were quite nervous about having photos taken but Stewart helped us to relax and took photos of us just being ourselves which we love (he also kept telling us that we were photogenic which definitely helped our confidence!).

Being able to spend the whole day with Stewart and shoot in two locations was great as it enabled us to get to know him better and resulted in us getting more natural photos of us as well as photos in places that mean a lot to us. We are really looking forward to having Stewart at our wedding, not just as a photographer but also a friend - we couldn't recommend him more!Caragh & Jo
Stewart was absolutely amazing from start to finish, and we can’t recommend him enough. He met with us a couple of times before hand to discuss everything in detail, and we loved how interested and keen he was when talking about our wedding! Throughout the lead up to the wedding I knew I could message him with any questions or ideas I had, and he was always happy to help.

On the day of the wedding, Stewart made us feel so comfortable and at ease. He was brilliant even amongst the chaos of 5 bridesmaids and a stressed out bride on the morning, and did an amazing job at keeping us calm, as well as capturing beautiful photos! (He even got a few of our dog which we are very grateful for!).

Throughout the wedding day Stewart was so friendly and kind to everyone, he spent time chatting to our friends and family and everyone commented on how lovely he was and how lucky we were to have him! He also made sure that we got every single group/family/bridal party photo we wanted! Stewart really contributed to how amazing and perfect our wedding day was, he’s a lovely and genuine person and we cannot recommend him highly enough! Not only did we have our perfect wedding photographer, I am proud to say we have also made a friend for life! Thank you Stewart!Becky & Duffy
We could not thank Stewart enough for our amazing wedding photos. He was with us from the very beginning and answered all of our questions. I found it particularly useful that we met up a couple times before the wedding. The engagement shoot was like a practice run for my husband and I, as we had no idea what to do in front of the camera. However Stewart made us very comfortable and our photos turned out to be natural. Stewart was both professional and friendly; we truly could not recommend him enough.Helen & Kevin
