Welcome to Luke Bell Wedding Photography

Hi there! As you may have guessed, I’m Luke and I’m a creative wedding and portrait photographer based in York, North Yorkshire.

Although I’m from York I actually only settled in this beautiful city after living in Queenstown, New Zealand for a number of years – which is where I really learned my trade as a photographer: Bungy jumping, jet boating, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, marathons, V8 supercars, lakes, mountains, world heritage sites, vineyards, paragliding and even the occasional wedding (!) were just some of the incredible subjects I was lucky enough to capture. But as the saying goes, there’s no place like home and I’m back, waiting to hear from lovely people just like you to get in touch and tell me how I can help.

Being a wedding photographer isn’t just a full-time occupation for me, it’s something I’m genuinely passionate about and I’m constantly striving to create images that are beautiful while meaning something special to my clients too. I’m a firm believer that great wedding photography should be about telling the story of your day and documenting you both just as you are: No awkward poses, no overly intrusive requests for more shots – just the two of you captured in your moment with your closest friends and family in an easy-going and unobtrusive manner.

After all, choosing your wedding photographer shouldn’t just be about ticking one more item off the wedding-to-do list – picking the right person to document your big day is one of the most important decisions you will make. Not only will your photographer be one of the people you see more of than anyone else during your wedding, but after it’s all over it’s your photos that are one of the few things you’ll have left to remember it by. So it’s not just about finding someone who’s work you like – it should also be about finding someone with whom you both feel comfortable with too, so if you think that person might be me, then get in touch as I’d love to hear from you and I make a mean cup of tea!

I like to keep things nice and simple so I offer a single photography package that delivers you perfect photos for your special day – with no hidden costs or extra charges for things like travel or more hours:

* Pre-wedding consultation (over a cup of tea, a pint, email, phone or Skype – whatever works for you!) so I can better understand your requirements for the day.

* All day photography coverage starting with the bridal preparations (90 mins prior to the service) and lasting right up until the end of the first dance

* Photography of the ceremony and reception venues

* Images of the ceremony itself (permitting)

* Portrait Shoot of you and your partner

* Images of the reception – detail shots, speeches, cake cutting…

* A combination of formal, posed portraits and group shots and less intrusive “documentary” style images of guests enjoying themselves.

* Careful & professional editing of all your images ready for delivery to you in 12 working days

* A minimum of 375+ images will be supplied in both colour and duplicate black & white formats via USB – that’s over 700+ images total – that come complete with a copyright waiver so you can print and share however you like.

* Online and downloadable slideshow of selected images that tell the story of your big day

* Secure online gallery hosting of all your images for 12 months after your wedding – a great way to ensure you always have easy access to your photos wherever you are as well as the ability to easily order prints, canvases and albums.
