Cumbrian Photographer

Thank you for coming to my Keltic Rose Photography webpage.  I am Allan and I love capturing your memories at fantastic times in your life, as a wedding and people photographer based in Carlisle, Cumbria.  

I specialise in other genres too; photographing babies and people whether in a portrait studio setting or at events or on location.

Keltic Rose Photography is there to capture those moments in a relaxed and fun way, so do get in touch.

Wedding Photographer

I strive to document your day capturing the small details that are often forgotten through time as well as the events of the unfolding day.

Family Photographer

Families grow up so fast so having family photos that include all of you are so important to capture memories.

Portrait Photographer

Sometimes you need photos for your work, or for fun, headshots, advertising, website, conferences or other commercial work.

Newborn Photographer

I have been trained by some of the UK’s best newborn photographers to ensure baby safety when taking photos. Newborn photos are typically taken when baby is under fourteen days old, so please book as soon as possible.

Event Photographer

Special events need to be captured, be they Christenings, Proms, Black Tie, Charity events. Sometimes we like to add a bit of fun by bringing a prop box for some extra craziness.

Dance Photographer

Fast action dance, in low changing light is a challenge for photographers but in this field I have loads of experience having worked with many dance groups around Carlisle.
