Harrogate Wedding Photographer

My approach to wedding photography allows me to capture your day in a truly special and unique way. You’ve planned the party of the century, filled with your personalities and creativity. Now you need someone who will capture every single, personal, touch. I am based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, but I love to capture weddings all over the U.K. & Europe.

 

I have a very relaxed and unobtrusive approach to wedding photography, which allows me to capture your day naturally unfolding. I will work with you before the wedding, to understand your personalities to also understand what your wishes are, such as to capture those key, friends & family portraits on the day. I will gently direct you through your couple photographs to help you look and feel comfortable and relaxed. 

 

 

 

My relaxed approach to weddings also allows me to capture real emotion, the hugs, the kisses & all the of tears.  I am unobtrusive, letting the day flow naturally, which allows me to photograph all of those subtle fleeting moments, which you will cherish for years to come. I love to think my photographs can not only spark a memory in someone, but also a feeling, I want to be able to transport you back to that moment when you look at my photographs and remember it like it was yesterday. As your wedding photographs are passed through different hands in your family, I hope new feelings are evoked within the viewer & they treasure these photographs as family heirlooms.

 

I love light filled imagery, I use natural light throughout the day, to create flattering luminous photographs. My fine art style allows me to pair natural moments with your wedding formalities, creating a honest story of your day. I love a neutral colour palette, but I also love colour and vibrancy, the beauty of fine art photography is that it allows you to capture the moment in a timeless & classic style.

 

 

 

 

From your engagement to your wedding day, I am there with you every step of the way, I want to tell the story of your love for one another. Capturing your guests and your nearest & dearest, in the, best, most flattering way possible.

FAQs

 

1. How do I secure my wedding date with you?  

I take a non-refundable £300 booking fee to secure your date in my diary. Once this has been paid the date is yours! 

2. Can we see full day wedding galleries before we book you?

Yes! I actively encourage you to view a full day wedding before booking, so you can see and get a feel for how I work.

3. How long does it take to receive the photos?

I will send you a preview images one week after your wedding that you can share with friends & family. The full gallery of images will be with you in 6-8 weeks of your wedding date.

4. How many images do we receive?

I’ve never put a number on a wedding. Each wedding is so unique & different, it would be impossible to give you an exact figure. I would never limit the amount of images given to the couple either, I deliver all usable images from your wedding day. Images which are excluded are usually unflattering (who would like a photo of themselves mid sneeze?) test shots & duplicates. Full day wedding galleries consist of 800+ edited photographs.

5. What rights do we have to the images?

The images are yours and are included in your collection price, you may download, share & print as often as you please.

6. How far do you travel?

Im based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, but I love to travel all over & I do travel all over. Local travel is included in your wedding collection, weddings further afield may incur a travel and accommodation fee, but please get in touch so we can chat about your plans!
