Yorkshire Portrait Photographer | Sammy

I met Sammy a year ago, when she booked me for a portraiture session. We had loads of fun, natter and cups of tea on that shoot and have since stayed in touch.

Fast forward 12 months and I am on the top floor of our house (the last bit of our renovation project) debating paint colours and carpet swatches, when it occurs to me that the bare floorboards and plaster walls, would actually be an awesome photography set. 

So....I mention this to Sammy, who is now used to my quirky, creative ideas....and being the brilliant sport that she is, says that she is really keen be involved :-)

Here's what we got up to on Saturday afternoon.... (before the decorators arrived on Monday morning)!

Yorkshire Wedding Photographer | Bridal Preparations

Yorkshire Wedding Photographer | Bridal Preparations

The bridal preparations are so lovely to photograph.

The realisation that, after all the planning, the day is finally here. The bride sharing the morning of her big day, with some of her closest friends and family. Seeing the make-up, hair, dress, shoes and jewellery, all coming together. The father of the brides reaction on seeing his daughter. The flurry of activity as the cars arrive and the ceremony is imminent.....

Such a special time and a privilege to capture :-)

Yorkshire Wedding Photographer | The little details....

When planning a wedding, so much time goes into the little details....the flowers (bouquets, buttonholes, centrepieces, confetti), the tailoring of dress (lace, buttons, bows.....), the shoes, the veil or headpiece, the hair, the rings, the cake (tiers, cupcakes, cheesecakes), the menu, the table plan, the favours, the readings etc etc etc. You get the idea!!

All these things make your wedding unique to you, so its important that they too are captured. These images allow your final set of photographs to tell the full 'story' of your day. They also compliment the 'people' images really well, in album layouts. 

For those of you looking for some inspiration check out Pintrest (but be warned, its massively addictive! - Ive lost hours....in fact days and weeks....to 'pinning'!). This blog on The Knot also contains some nice ideas; https://www.theknot.com/content/wedding-details-not-to-miss.

If you're currently planning a wedding and looking for a photographer to capture your big day, then I'd love to hear from you!
