Professional experienced & creative wedding photographer in North Yorkshire & Northeast

 

Modern & natural documentary style wedding photography.

A little introduction

I’m a professional wedding photographer based on the North Yorkshire & Durham borders which means I'm ideally placed to cover Northeast weddings.  However, I love a little adventure and will happily travel to your little or lavish, shindig or soiree wherever your celebrations may be.  I've been a photographing weddings, full-time, for nearly a decade.

Each one tells a story, each will bring emotions; both, story and emotion will change and be more heartfelt each time you hold them and let your eyes gaze in to the scene.  They are more than just a photo.  They are the legacy of your wedding day, the start of your life together and the memories and emotions will be different for everyone who looks upon them.  They are your wedding photographs and they will keep your happiest of days, fresh and true, forever.

Keeping it real: documentary / creative wedding photography

Your wedding photography it's about capturing memories and photos that reflect your personality and style. I move naturally between journalistic and artistic styles as events happen, providing you with images that both document and have some creative flair.  For the majority of your wedding day you'll hardly realise I'm there, which is ideal for keeping your photos natural and real.

Of course if we're keeping it real, occasionally something will wander in to our shot, requiring a little edit; view some edits here.

The Pre Wedding shoot:

I want to provide you with more than just great wedding photos; quality service is key too, so I include a complementary pre-wedding shoot (PWS), usually, 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.  Why?  Because so many couples state they dislike having their photo taken.  The PWS is an ideal ice breaker and gives us some relaxed, stress free time together during which we will: finalise your group photo requests, confirm your schedule and take some photos.

 

Wedding Photography Packages.

 

Obviously the first thing you'll want to confirm is: availability.  As I only accept one wedding assignment per day.
