We love photography. And we're assuming you do too otherwise why would you be looking for a professional photographer. You understand the difference between a professional image and one taken on an iPhone!

We specialise in lifestyle photography, which always gives the clients a totally unique image whether it be for a family portrait, children's portrait or your wedding photos.

Plus, each image is handcrafted by us after we've got to know what you like.

All our portrait photography is done on location to make the best use of natural light and to break away from the limitations studio photography has.

Our lifestyle photography sessions start from only £95 for a 2 hours session and our wedding photography packages start from only £1,295 for a full day's shoot.

I can’t recommend dj archer enough. Nobody is use to their pictures being taken all day but they made us feel so at ease and after a while we didn’t realise they were there.

We had so many laughs and I think they were a perfect fit for our day. Of course with an English wedding the rain came but we made the most of it popping in and out so we didn’t get soaked.

We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and making our day so special. We can’t wait to see the pictures, I’m sure they will be amazing

Customer Testimonials

Thanks so much for the wonderful pictures you did of my brother's wedding. You captured everything perfectly in a very unobtrusive way.

Thank you so very much for doing our wedding photography! We appreciated all of your hard work on the day and are so happy with our beautiful wedding album. It is stunning and captured the whole of our day perfectly.

The decision to go with Danny as our wedding photographer was the best we made whilst planning our wedding. The meetings we had with Danny before the big day really helped to put us at ease and gave us peace of mind in terms of what to expect on the big day. From start to finish Danny was friendly, professional, helpful and so well organised and put us and all of our guests at ease and in doing so created an album of unique and outstanding images. Everyone who has seen the photos have commented on how fantastic they are. When choosing the images for the album we were spoilt for choice!Anyone considering DJ Archer photography for their wedding, we can't recommend them enough. Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for our wonderful photos. They are brilliant and there were so many high quality photos to choose from. We are so glad we went with Danny as he was not intrusive at all, we hardly knew he was there yet he was able to capture the day perfectly from start to finish. We love the fact that he was so relaxed compared to some pushy photographers who take over the day. We would definitely recommend him to our friends. Many thanks

Used Lizz and Danny for our wedding. They was hardly noticeable and took really candid photos. Couldn't recommend them more!

From Our Website

We live in the beautiful county of Lancashire and as wedding photographers and portrait photographers we spend our time travelling around the UK capturing special moments. We see the best hugs, we hear the loudest laughs and we see the biggest tears. We also make some wonderful friends in the process. This is why we love our job.

After having quite a few newborn baby boys we finally had a little girl to photograph. And she was definitely worth the wait. This little angel slept the whole way through, stirred once or twice for a feed, then straight back to sleep. And she's so cute or are we just being biased because we've. We had the absolute joy of photographing this gorgeous little baby recently. He was only 8 days old and a very lively little fella. He was such a cutie and his nursey was full of absolute gems, mainly Winnie the Pooh and Curious George.

Chocolate Labrador Puppies We had the most enjoyable shoot with these gorgeous chocolate labrador puppies. 6 in total. They were a little shy at first but quickly livened up. Then it was easy to spot the very confident ones and the ones who were happy to sit and pose. And they smelled absolutely gorgeous. For details on how to book email [email protected] or ring 07850 137378 Introducing our new Digital Family Portraits Package For a while now we've been asked if our pictures are available in digital format.

If you're getting married in the North of England there's a good chance you'll have rain on your wedding day. According to the MEN it rains 151 days in Manchester. So if you're planning to have a farm wedding, make sure you have suitable attire, such as wellies and brollies! Alice and Tom's wedding is. We met Lisa and Marc at last years wedding fair at Eaves Hall and we hit it off with them straight away. They are such a lovely and funny couple and we had a good laugh and joke with them. They wanted very relaxed, informal photos and wanted to spend as much time as possible enjoying.

You can create some beautiful pictures in a studio but it can be a daunting experience when you're having your photograph taken and with little or no props to help with the awkwardness of it, a plain white background can be a cringy, painful experience. So ALL our family portraits are done on location at one of your favourite places, i.e. the beach, woods, park or the middle of nowhere! It will honestly reflect the type of life you lead and love. This is what we mean by ‘lifestyle photography'.

Family Portraits In The Sun One of the best things about being wedding photographers is meeting all the wonderful couples. And it's even better when our lovely couples start producing tiny little babies of their own. We photographed Ash and Emma's wedding back in 2013 and since then they've moved to the other side of. Dunham massey pre-wedding shoot We were very lucky to spend Good Friday with this lovely family. Laura and Gareth met us at the Great Lancashire Wedding Show and Laura noticed that we had photographed their friend's wedding so we immediately clicked (no pun intended!).

We want to know what you are like and what you think ‘love is.' as every couple is different and every wedding is different. We love that as no two jobs are ever the same. If you would like to have a nosey at our albums in the comfort of your own home, we'll be happy to come to yours for a brew and a biscuit. We have a good chat about what you want, the type of wedding you'll have and how we can capture the images you want. There is also no obligation to book. We don't stand with our foot in the door waiting for you to sign!
