About Us

About Us

Longest Established Photography Business in Cheshire & Wirral.

Yes we truly are! Our family business was set up in 1949 by my grandad Roy Offley and I'm the third generation of photographer in my family and now run the business with my husband Ian.

As an award winning photographer I use my wealth of knowledge and experience to create a fun atmosphere here in the studio.

Forget stale smiles and awkward poses, I love getting the kids to smile, blowing bubbles, jumping, running around and generally having a great time.

Our signature style of photography is natural and relaxed.

We look forward to meeting you, please call to see how we can help!


71 Years of Industry Leadership

My grandad Roy Offley was passionate about photography, his journey started during WW2 where he was in the RAF serving in the mobile field photographic section until the end of the war.  A short time after this Roy established his photography business ‘R. L. Offley – High Class Photography’.  

One of the oldest price lists we have of my grandads advertises ‘flashlight photography’ & ‘photographs hand coloured in oils’  and an emphasises on his aim in quality (still a philosophy we have today!)

A love of photography is something that grandad passed on to my mother, Alison, who after working with her father for many years eventually took over the business in the 1980’s and became a award winning wedding photographer.

I learnt my profession with my mother mentoring over many years, with me specialising in photographing candid  reportage style images at the weddings, winning awards and being featured in Cosmopolitan Brides before eventually setting up the portrait studio with Ian my husband.
