About Lewis Bishop Photography

Hello, I’m Lewis…

Lover of photography, gaming, hearty roast dinners, and the wonders of the great outdoors. (Planning a mountain wedding? Count me in! 📸) I’ve been capturing love stories since 2015 (can you believe it?), with the chance to snap moments in my hometown of Northamptonshire, all over the UK, and even across the globe! (Shooting a wedding in Mexico & Cyprus is a memory I will never forget!)

Along this incredible journey, I’ve met some amazing souls, and I genuinely adore what I do. Over the years, I’ve carved out a reputation for making couples feel at ease, charming the pants off parents, and blending in like a friend rather than just a photographer at weddings. If you’re on the lookout for a photographer who vibes with the moment instead of taking over, then drop me a message today!

How it all began

For some reason, growing up, I wanted to be a lawyer (not a policeman, or fireman like most kids). But that idea soon fizzled out and I was soon on to the next thing, and the next thing, and then the next thing, as kids do. I am not sure entirely at what age I discovered my love of photography (I am going to say, early teens). But it’s funny, as I type this I realise my passion for photography goes back a lot further than I first thought.

I was that kid that photographed everything and anything on his mobile phone (the quality was terrible, but I didn’t know any different at the time) and doing so, as I simply enjoyed it. I also used to create video content with friends, with camcorders (The ones with videotapes in them, wow that makes me sound old!). It was nothing serious, but I got so much enjoyment watching everything back, and enjoyed the whole creative process.

I never realised, or even thought at the time, that photography could or would ever be a career. After years of taking photographs on mobile phones, I picked up my first ‘proper’ camera (as people put it) again by absolute chance, and I was instantly hooked. I remember looking at the quality of the images taken on a DSLR compared to what I was capturing on my mobile phone, and thinking ‘wow this is pretty amazing!’. I remember the next week, heading to an electronic shop and purchasing my first ever DSLR (a Canon 550d)

Again after years of messing around with my camera in hand (it was pretty much glued to me), my skills naturally grew, and people reached out to me through social media asking if I could take photographs of their kids (for money, real money!)

Over time, doing jobs here and there, I began to see that there was something in this. For one, capturing moments, and creating memories for people felt like nothing else, and as cheesy as it sounds, I felt like and still feel like photography gave me purpose in life.

So after a while of photographing a little bit of everything, I captured my first wedding for a work colleague of mine at the time. He understood I had never captured a wedding before, but knew I was passionate about the art, so he put his trust in me to document his big day.

They say everything happens for a reason, and when I look back at my life, I couldn’t agree more. If I hadn’t had been with my friend that day, and picked up that DSLR for instance, my true love of photography may never have been discovered!

Since I began my wedding photography business, It has been an incredible journey, one which I have shared with you every step of the way.

My favourite things in the world apart from photography are travelling, cycling, eating good food, gaming, gardening, and of course spending time with my family! (I had to include a pic of my partner and son below, I would like to thank them both for the encouragement and support all these years!)
