Hola! My name is Cass and I’m a creative wedding photographer based in Sale. I’m originally from the West Country but I’ve lived in Manchester for several years now and I love it! When I’m not at weddings I like to explore Manchester, drink coffee, hang out with my husband or cuddle up with our two fluffy cats Aslan & Zelda. I’m also learning to Spanish in my spare time and I always like to practice if I can find a willing listener!
I’ve always loved recording events and I used to take pictures and tape sounds all the time when I was a teenager. I went on to study Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster and gained a 1st class degree before setting up Cassandra Lane Photography in 2011. Since then I’ve clocked up a lot of miles travelling around the UK and Europe capturing all the fun of my couples’ wedding days. In 2016 I also set up a training workshop for other photographers called Shoot Joy.
I describe my style as alternative wedding photography because my shots are joyful, colourful and bold as well as being a little bit quirky. I’m a sociable sort, so rather than being a ‘fly on the wall’ you will often find me chatting with guests or throwing shapes on the dance floor as I’m snapping away. My approach on a wedding day is relaxed and informal as I want you to feel comfortable with my presence, as if I was just another guest. Even if you are camera shy, you can have beautiful, natural wedding photographs that illustrate what a brilliant time you had.
My unique wedding photography work has been featured in some of the UK’s most popular publications and wedding blogs such as Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress, Rock n Roll Bride & Wedding Ideas Magazine. I was also a North West regional finalist for Best Photographer at the 2017 Wedding Industry Awards, yay!
If you’re wondering if I’m the right wedding photographer for you, I offer free consultations over coffee so we can chat more about your day. Simply get in touch with me to find out if your date is available.
