Overview - Weddings

Your wedding day - months of planning, big expense, but hopefully a momentous and joyful event, which with beautiful wedding photography and a stunning album can be relived over and over again.

Well that's the plan, but too often couples underestimate this key role of the wedding photographer until, unfortunately, it's too late. Choosing wedding photographers is as important as choosing the wedding dress or venue - it cant be left to chance!

Wedding photography is an important aspect of our Harrogate based photography business and our aim is to be the best. We don't just want you to be pleased with our photography- we want you to be ecstatic! Being full time, qualified, professional photographers, we don't do "cheese" and we don't spend our weekdays doing something else!

As photographers, we like to try and get to know you before the wedding: discuss your ideas and requirements, talk the day through, look at venues and identify good photographic locations. These key aspects of planning will ensure that come the wedding day the photography all goes smoothly. You may want to combine this with a pre-wedding shoot - a great way of getting accustomed to being photographed as a couple and sure to provide some photographs for invites or wedding lists.

Come the wedding day, we aim to be polite, friendly and unintrusive as possible - we should be remembered for our photography not our photographers! We will move swiftly to where we need to be and quietly go about the business of organising friends and relatives when it comes to the group shots.

For weddings, digital photography is fanastic; it enables us to shoot hundreds of photographs in a relaxed "reportage"/ documentary style and pick up on some of the unexpected little details. For a big wedding, we even suggest a second photographer so that nothing is missed.

Candid and detailed shots are fantastic for the wedding album - but it's the more intimate shots of Bride and Groom which will be most treasured most. Post service, we like to get a few quality minutes with the bride and groom in a quiet area away from the guests - this produces natural, relaxed photographs.

For a dramatic effect, we like to incorporate architectural features of the venue as a classical or modern backdrop to our wedding photography. Being in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, we are lucky to have stunning local venues such as Ripley Castle, Fountains Abbey, York Minster, Kirkstall Abbey, Newby Hall, Harewood House, Swinton Park, Bolton Abbey Priory and Rudding Park. Wherever you are - church, registry office, hotel, marquee or beach we will make best use of the surroundings!

Whether you like classic or contemporary styles, we will tailor our photography to suit you. Likewise, we can offer a range of stylish modern coffee table wedding books, classic albums, large prints, canvases and art blocks.

We offer a range of packages and can tailor to your requirements. Fees for small services or registry office weddings local to Harrogate start from just 450.00. For a complete pacakage we can provide a full day starting with the brides preparations through to speeches. We work throughout North and West Yorkshire as well as more locally in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon, York, Wetherby and Leeds.
