Sentient Wedding Photography
I just love photographing people at their happiest so, if you have any special occasion I will be pleased to photograph it. I not only provide wedding photography but also photograph civil ceremonies, christenings and any other special family occasions.


Sentient Photo is run by myself, Alan Walley. I believe that photography is my vocation and have been taking photography seriously for 3 years. If you have not already guessed by now, I really enjoy Weddings and capturing the spirit of weddings. My greatest reward, after being paid for doing what I love, is presenting images to clients that they will truly value.
Wedding Photography Is Not A Single Day Process
It starts when you first say hello and ends when you receive your albums and final prints. That is why we have a pre-meeting and pre-shoot; to help develop a working bond and so you know there will always be friendly face behind the camera.
Not Everyone Is Comfortable Having Their Photograph Taken
For some it is a chore.

When you are happy and relaxed in front of the camera, your images will reflect that. I aim to work with each client, to provide you with a unique service that is tailored to your needs.
What Defines Professional Wedding Photography?
It is about so much more than providing just a technically correct image.

It is about putting you first. It is about making you look your best. And it is about delivering photographs that are creative, emotive and tell a story. I hope you agree that I do. If you have not already viewed my galleries yet, please do so and judge for yourself.
Where Do I Work?
I am based in Bramhall, a suburb of Stockport in South Manchester. But that is only where I process the images back in my office. I go to wherever the photography is required. Fortunately, I enjoy travelling, revisiting places I know well or discovering somewhere new. I just love the North West and over the years have grown familiar with most of it; I am a Lancashire lad so feel patriotic to my home county; I've lived in and around many towns in and around Manchester; the Lake District is stunning and a favourite place for photography; Cheshire is on my doorstep; the Peak District is only a short drive away; I have many friends in Saddleworth, the Wirral and in Yorkshire so I am often visiting with my camera. So no matter where you live or where your special occasion may be, if you like my photography, please do call me and let's have a chat.
