Peak District Wedding Photography – Kate & Gaz at Upperhouse

May 13, 2015

One of my favourite things about wedding phototgraphy is parachuting in to the centre of a family and being given the privilege of seeing them on one of their happiest days.

Today though, I’m not just parachuting in. Today I get to shoot my sister-in-law Kate as she marries Gaz. I get to see my wife looking beautiful as chief bridesmaid and get to be part of a fantastic family weekend. Thanks to my friend Ryan coming along to shoot the day with me, I even get to put the camera down from time to time to eat, drink and hit the dancefloor!

My highlight of the weekend came the next day as we watched a slideshow I had put together to share with the family. Usually I simply send off a link or a disc to my clients and can only hope that they pull family close, grab a drink and share together.

As the lights came up at the end of the slideshow, there were tears and smiles and I knew we’d captured images that would be treasured. I knew, not only from their reactions, but because I was there and I’ll treasure them too.

Hannah & Tom Portraits

April 16, 2015

I recently wrote an article for Your Perfect Wedding Photographer about how to get the best from your pre-wedding shoot and one of my tips was all about the time of day. Today’s shoot is a great example of capturing that beautiful sun that comes at the end of a spring day. I headed to Temple Newsam to meet up with Hannah & Tom as the sun was setting over Leeds.

Saltaire Wedding Photographer – Jennifer and Nathan Portraits

April 2, 2015

Easter is almost upon us and before I escape in to a chocolate fuelled coma for a few days I wanted to share one of my recent pre-wedding sessions. When Nathan mentioned that he and Jennifer were all out of idea for where to go for their shoot I suggested Saltaire.

As you head out of Bradford towards the countryside, Saltaire is where things start to get really beautiful. A little further on is where Rache and I have set up home and beyond that are the dales including much of the picturesque landscape on show during last year’s Grand Depart.

I’ve taken many snapshots when walking around Saltaire and so it was fantastic to finally use it as a backdrop for one of my shoots.

Now where did Rache hide those eggs?..

Oulton Hall Wedding Photographer – Hannah and Richard

March 16, 2015

I’ve been at Oulton Hall as a wedding photographer a number of times and even stayed there as a guest. I’m always impressed! Despite shooting there before I always see new things to explore and try and Hannah and Richard’s wedding was no exception.

The day started with the gents over in the golf course clubhouse before heading back to the main hotel to catch up with the ladies during their final preparations. The large windows flood the ceremony room with light and the suite looked equally stunning for the reception thanks to Hannah and Richard’s (but probably mostly Hannah’s) subtle decorative touches.

First, if you’ve got a few minutes, turn on your speakers and enjoy a slideshow of my favourite images. Or just scroll down to see the story of the day.
