Who am I?

My name's Al and I'm the face behind Al Topping Photos & Film. I am a documentary-style wedding, event and portrait photographer living in the Lake District, UK.

With over 12 years experience taking people's photographs, either at weddings, conferences or outdoors, I still get excited to work with new people. I love capturing a moment in time and printing it out for the wall and in doing so have built a reputation for exquisite imagery, a personable attitude and total professionalism.

I offer my clients affordable and more bespoke services for each of the genres I shoot allowing you to achieve the end results you need for the price point you want to hit.

Alison & Paul

Wedding Coverage

We honestly couldn't have wished for a more organised, calm (and calming) and charming photographer to capture our special day - Al was wo good with everyone, even when things got a bit chaotic and he had to boss people around. Al was great!

He did an amazing job and everyone commented on how great he was with our guests. We are so grateful and couldn't have chosen a better person to capture our special day.

Kate & Stuart

Wedding Coverage

Really recommend Al - he did the photos at our wedding and they were fantastic and great quality. Really good value for an awesome end product, and Al himself is personable and friendly.

Jackie Lerm

Head of Social Media - BFBS

We asked Al to be the photographer for our live event in Harrogate, #SMSpousesLive. He was very professional, extremely thorough in his planning, made sure he understood exactly what we'd like, and was relentless when taking photos of the event. He snapped away until the very last person left. When we got the photos back, we were blown away by how great they looked. Al captured the day for us perfectly, and we'll definitely use him again in the future.

Helen Massy

Editor in Chief - Career Pursuit Magazine

I commissioned Al to help with photography for my publication Career Pursuit. Al’s inspiration and insight were invaluable. Most importantly, Al produced an expert article called “How to create a professional LinkedIn headshot without being a pro” which has now been published in the magazine. The article is full of valuable advice and excellent samples of how to/how not to take a headshot. The article had been incredibly well received and I am already looking forward to working with Al again on next years edition.

Sophia & Kyle

Engagement Photographs

We absolutely love our photos. Al did an amazing job - and many family and friends have actually said that he's captured them amazingly well! I can’t believe how he managed to get so many of Kyle laughing and smiling, which is nice - Kyle's mum was made up.
