Leeds wedding photographer
The one behind the camera.
Yorkshire photographer covering the UK & Europe
I'm really pleased that you're here!
There is nothing I like to do more than photograph lovely people in the places they love and to create something meaningful to others.
I’m Heather, a professional wedding photographer based in Leeds, Yorkshire, where I live with my husband James, son Barney and highly strung cat, Stuart.
I've been captivated with photography since I first studied at Art College (before digital!) and I was lucky enough to turn my passion into a profession 3 years ago and I haven't looked back!
I want to capture the real moments and emotions of your wedding day and add my own magic to it. Natural images are my favourites but I’ll also make sure we have time for some elegant and breathtaking couple portraits (not too long though!).
I will create beautiful images that tell the story of your wedding from start to finish, and leave you with memories that you'll want hanging all over your home.
"We have just received our professional photos from Heather Butterworth Photography and we are absolutely blown away! The shots are beautiful and she has completely managed to capture our day and given us so many memories to look back on."
Jenny and Craig, Leeds, Yorkshire.
I mostly shoot documentary style photography, as for me the day is really about capturing real moments. I will make sure that you are relaxed and have fun on your wedding day and that it shines through on your natural photos. 90% of the day is photographed in this way.
As well as this, I absolutely love spending a short amount of time with each couple to capture some beautiful portraits. This may take place in the middle of the day, but also in the evening too where we can hopefully make use of the perfect sunset light. If we aren't blessed with great light then I like to get creative by introducing my own lights to produce some really dramatic and stunning portraits.
I like to meet up over a drink or a brew so that we can get to know each other. This really lets me understand what is important to you and helps me to tell your story.
If that sounds like what you are looking for then I would love to hear from you.
"Brilliant photos that really captured the spirit and atmosphere of the occasion. We love the way you have managed so unobtrusively to record the events in such an original and informal way. Thank you."
ANDREW AND MARY, Leeds, Yorkshire.

JENNY & CRAIG's wedding
ADEL PARISH CHURCH LEEDS, YORKSHIRE
Heather photographed our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. She made us feel at ease from the first time we met her on our engagement shoot and on the day she was so professional. The final product is wonderful, she has perfectly captured our day in memories we can keep forever, I would highly recommend her
LAURA & STEFAN's wedding
LEEDS TOWN HALL, YORKSHIRE
Heather was amazing, so friendly and great with all the children too. Effortlessly mingled into the crowds of guests and captured our day perfectly. She took loads of great photos and we were complemented by our guests on the photos and her great people skills. I couldn’t recommend her enough. Very talented!
