Wedding Photography in Birmingham by The Popes

We are award-winning Birmingham wedding photographers, creating a visual story of your day.

We are one of the first wedding photographers in Birmingham to capture real moments and emotions during weddings. And the Wedding Photojournalist Association recognizes our creative excellence and achievements.

Our candid wedding photos tell a story and convey a sense of intimacy and authenticity that posed images do not. We capture moments as natural and spontaneous as when they happened because we believe photos should stand the test of time.

We hope you can see how we wish to capture your big day. Thank you for viewing our work. We can’t wait to start this journey with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your approach to wedding photography?

We are one of the first wedding photographers in Birmingham and the West Midlands to capture candid and natural moments during a wedding day rather than staged or posed shots. A photographer who documents the day as it unfolds is called a documentary wedding photographer.

What is a documentary wedding photographer?

A documentary wedding photographer specialises in capturing emotions, interactions, and details as they happen rather than simply taking formal or posed shots of the bride, groom and guests. Unlike posed photos, candid pictures tell a story and convey a sense of intimacy and authenticity.

Are you any good?

We have over 15 years of experience photographing engagements, weddings & events throughout the West Midlands. The WPJA has awarded us multiple masterpiece awards as recognition for top wedding photography in Birmingham. And our photos have appeared in many bridal publications and online wedding guides.

Where are you located, and do you travel?

Based in Birmingham, we primarily travel within the West Midlands region. Fees apply for travel anywhere outside of the Midlands.

How many photos do you deliver?

Every wedding is unique, and our focus is to tell the story of your day truthfully and artistically, which means that the final number of photos that couples receive varies. With that said, we typically deliver 750-1000 finished images.

How long does it take to receive my finished photos?

You can expect your finished photos within 15 to 30 days after your wedding. A preview will be available to see earlier – so newlyweds can enjoy a sneak peek on their honeymoon!

What’s included in the package if we book?

Your investment includes our excellent storytelling abilities, digital files and print releases. Fees apply for custom-designed storybooks.

What is required to move forward with booking?

A signed contract with a 25% non-refundable retainer is required to book. The remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding date.
