Creative Wedding Photography in and around The Peak District
You’re probably sat in work or on the sofa, scrolling endlessly through wedding vendors, when you’d much rather be out having an epic adventure? If that sounds like you, keep reading!
It might seem like finding a photographer is another chore. However, your photos will be one of the few things that you have long after the wedding day. They will allow you to re-live the special moments of a day that inevitably will quickly pass by. Not all photographers will be suited to you, each have their own style. Choosing the right one to suit you and your personality should be a big consideration. Don’t just select the one with the lowest price or because a friend had them a few years ago. Choose someone you want and trust to make your special day into perfect photos. Factor this in when booking to ensure your images are captured as you want to remember them.
What To Look For?
Not all wedding photographer’s are the same, in fact most will have their own unique style built over many years of experience. Don’t just look at the price, look at the photos and also the photographer. Inspect what you will be paying for and that it matches how you wish to remember your day. Does the photographer’s personality align with yours? There are countless styles of photography such as candid, traditional, documentary, adventurous and many more. Think how you want to want to remember your big day. Next, think about how the photos look, not just in the style of shooting but also how they are processed. Whilst unedited photos suit some people, others prefer a particular style of final editing. Editing and processing is a large portion of a wedding photographer’s work and ultimately represents an equal portion of the end result. Please take a look through my wedding photography portfolio on Instagram or Facebook for examples of my work which I have captured from over 8 years of experience.
My Wedding Photography Style
My style of wedding photography is discreet. I like to do my job without being noticed or disturbing the flow of the day. This doesn’t mean i’m tucked away in a corner, I will always be around taking photos but being discrete allows me to capture natural and beautiful shots of people enjoying your special day. I take lots of candid shots to document the day as it is, though I do like the take the couple aside for a short portion of the day to capture the ‘hero shots’ of just the two of you. I love shooting beautiful, outdoorsy locations whatever the weather. My photography incorporates a mixture of natural light and flash to achieve my desired effect.
Prices & Packages
I have two wedding photography packages which can be seen on my Wedding Photography Prices page. My most popular package covers the preparations, the service, group and couple shots right through to the cutting of the cake and the first dance.
Nervous and Camera Shy?
Don’t worry! With all my wedding packages, I offer a free engagement shoot prior to your big day. This allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, get to know me and also ask any questions you may have about your big day.
I cover areas within The Peak District, Buxton, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Manchester, Staffordshire, Snowdonia, Sheffield, The Lake District and many other places within the North West. If you are outside of these areas, please don’t hesitate to contact me as I’d be happy to discuss weddings based all over the UK .
