Best 2017 Wedding Photography // Leeds Wedding Photographer

Wow. So here we are. 2017 is pretty much done (at the time of writing I still have 2 weddings yet to shoot) and honestly, I’m not sure where the time went. With it being my first full year of shooting weddings – and nothing else – I can only describe the last 12 months as one incredible ride. Again, wow.

I’ve been so lucky to have travelled throughout the UK and met some truly amazing people who’ve been trusting enough to let me document their unique stories. In July alone I worked on the Norfolk Broads, in the Cotswolds, in the Peak District, on the Isle of Skye and even at a couple of weddings here in York too From beautiful, intimate barn weddings, to cool urban venues (like the lush Wylam Brewery), I’ve been blown away by the variety of amazing locations.

But, at the heart of every wedding was an awesome couple, entrusting me to capture one of the most important days of their lives. Without you guys, none of this would have been possible. So to each and every one of you – thank you, thank you, thank you!

In addition to all the couples, I think it’s only right that I make a special mention to some of the people who’ve helped me out with their invaluable advice and support: Dylan and Joanna for agreeing to spend some of their precious time basically geeking out on films and cinematographers (but for actually giving me a “eureka” moment and helping me realise where I wanted to push my photography and giving the confidence to do it); The insanely talented Nigel John for having me along for “work experience” (sorry Sophie this still makes me chuckle) at the stunning Chateau de Lartigolle in France; and the legends that are the Nice People With Cameras (Guys! How good was Millfest?! Jono Symonds, you’re a good man)

More than anyone, I really have to thank Kathie + Rose for always being there, making me laugh, keeping me sane and constantly supporting me. Love you dudes.

So, finally, we get to why we’re here. Below are 100(ish) of my favourite photos taken during the last 12 months. They’re in no particular order but will hopefully give you an idea of the type of photos that I love to make, while also giving you an idea of how amazing 2017 has been for me.

Cheers everyone,

Best 2017 Wedding Photography // Leeds Wedding Photographer

“To tell the narrative of what is one of the most important days in your life, I believe it’s important that I’m there from the start of the day all the way into the night – long after the first dance. Capturing the important moments that tell the unique story of your amazing wedding day”

I combine a nonintrusive, photojournalistic approach along with fun, modern portraiture that, when combined, provide an honest set of images that have a clean, cinematic look. Where nerves, joy, tears, love and laughter take centre stage.

To keep things nice and simple I currently only offer a single wedding photography package that delivers you perfect photos for your special day – with no hidden costs or extra charges for things like travel, meals or more hours.

So if you’d like to learn more have a read through the details listed here and drop me a line, as I’d love to hear what you’re planning for your big day.
