Contact Leigh Mcara







Hello, my name is Leigh McAra and I have established a reputation for being one of the most creative, stylish and innovative Derbyshire Wedding Photographers.  
 
The love of nature that first inspired me to pick up my first camera when I was a wee lad of just fourteen for one of my school projects. I was so excited by it, I set up a lab in my parents' shed and have developed prints ever since. 
 
My photography career has taken me all over the country and world, Italy, France, America, Spain, just to name a few and I still haven't seen enough. 
 
I believe that each wedding is unique, so I don't define myself in a single style. I always take the time to meet the couple to know them so that I can get a real feel for their personalities and the 'tone' of their wedding.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm Located in the Midlands in the Uk. We only Charge for travel outside of the Uk.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I,ve been in Business over 25 years and 10 fully time. I've lost count how main weddings I've photographed

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

People always ask what is my style. My answer is that I have a non-labelled style. Photographers define themselves as creative, natural light or documentary and reportage. Really for me though, I find it difficult to put myself in a category, as all of the elements of each of these descriptions could apply to my work. I see every wedding as unique and my photography is unique to each couple I've worked with. I develop a relationship with every couple, so as to become more than just the photographer. I aim to provide you with the very best results.
