Modern and creative styled studio and wedding photography.

Michael Stockton Studio is Leicester's most established family run photographers located close to the railway station and main shopping area (open 6 days a week.) Michael Stockton is also an active and fully qualified member of The Master Photographer's Association.

When you commission Michael Stockton Studio to cover your wedding,
you are hiring a full time professional.

Don't book a once in a while photographerfor a once in a lifetime event!

Every wedding is tailored to your individual needs with an exciting mix of contemporary and candid photography. We have reduced the number of the formal shots to only the ones that really count.

No two weddings are the same, so do not hesitate to tell us what is required. Our preferred style is a mix of contemporary & natural images with some groups . We can also do reportage style photography with the minimum of formality. Yet if you prefer photography with fully arranged groups, then this is not a problem.

We will carefully go through your plans and timings for the day to ensure there will be enough time to mingle with your guests and enjoy yourselves without compromising the photography.

So what do you get by booking Michael Stockton Studio?

Firstly we are a full time professional studio and Michael is a qualified member of the Master Photographers Association. The majority of our printing is done in-house and Belle Stockton creates all the design and artwork to create the perfect Album or Wedding Book.

To ensure the smooth running of the day, it is IMPERATIVE that the best man and ushers have a list of any group photographs that are needed otherwise these shots can drag on. For a more comfortable and relaxed day, please inform us in advance of any groups that are required. We are happy to help you with this list. Back to top
