Album Design

There is no better way to enjoy your photos than a proper album. Period.
Hand bound in Yorkshire , printed a top quality matte fine art paper, lay-flat pages meaning there is no interruption of images spanning the centre fold.

It’s where photos are supposed to live.

Studio Sessions

It's no great secret that this time of year is pretty quiet for weddings, so I've been keeping myself busy building a photography studio in the co-working space I run in Meanwood, Light Space.

I thought I'd share a handful of images I've shot in there over the past week, it's a lot of fun trying out new things, and as photography is literally all about light it's great to be learning more about making my own light!



I've got limited availability for shoots this month so do get in touch if you're looking for some studio shots!

Yorkshire Garden Wedding

Flying back from Qatar to Yorkshire to get married at Alex's family home surrounded by their loved ones, Alex & Toyan's was certainly a wedding to remember! Beautiful people who *seriously* know how to dress, heaps of emotion, and the mother of all parties - inevitable when a DJ marries an artist. All in all it was a joy to photograph!

Sheffield Wedding Wood Lane Countryside Centre

Back over to Sheffield for another beautiful wedding at the Wood Lane Countryside Centre, always a treat to start the morning with the ladies from Jenn Edwards & Co! The bagpiper Aenea & Pete had hired to soundtrack their walk down the aisle had been given the wrong time, so appeared halfway through the ceremony and just went for it full blast, which had the whole room in stitches!

Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars Winner

Well, after the longest few weeks keeping it a secret, I'm now finally allowed to tell the world I've been named one of Rangefinder Magazine's 30 Rising Stars of wedding photography! Rangefinder is a New York based print magazine read by photographers all over the world.It's all a bit surreal to be honest, I never usually enter competitions, but having been nominated by a previous winner (thanks Marianne!) I thought I'd better pull together a few of my favourite photos and send them off. Certainly wasn't expecting to be listed, reading through the previous years winners is pretty mind-blowing, so many of my super talented friends from all over the world!I've never hidden the fact that I fell into wedding photography entirely by accident, so it's nice to have some validation that I've somehow ended up doing something I'm pretty good at! It's very easy as a wedding photographer and creative to be hard on yourself, so this is a great boost at the end of a very busy year.Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars is unique in being peer nominated and judged by a panel of wedding photography industry experts.Obviously the most important feedback is the thanks I get from the couples who's weddings I get to shoot, but it's really great to be acknowledged by my peers!Without going all Gwyneth-Paltrow-at-the-Oscars, now seems a good time to thank a few people who've supported, encouraged, and guided me. Marianne for nominating me, Jamie, Emma & Pete, Jo Brown, Kristian, Lizzie, Laura and the whole SNAP family, and all the other people who've helped me along the way. Check out the full list of Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2018 here. Here are the images I submitted:

Leeds Pre-wedding Charlie & Chris

Charlie and Chris drove for two hours to hang out in a car park with me.I reckon it was time well spent!Can you believe there are people who don't even have a favourite car park?! 

Ilkley Moor Pre-wedding Session: Sonia & Sean

A windy walk around the Cow & Calf rocks at Ilkley Moor is an excellent wedding hangover cure. That and a pint at the Cow & Calf pub over the road.All the greenery made an interesting change from my usual urban-industrial pre-wedding  locations, always good to mix things up!Sonia & Sean were great company, really looking forward to shooting their wedding at the recently renovated Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey. 

Stacey & Daniel High Peak Pre-wedding

Stacey & Daniel High Peak Pre-wedding

So, turns out Glossop is more than just the road from Buxton to Leeds! It's actually really bloody lovely, especially in the sunshine. Stacey & Daniel were great fun to spend the afternoon with, met them at theirs and walked straight to the pub, down a seriously impressive hill. God knows how they get back up it after a few! Daniel's commitment to 'getting-in-the-bush' was something to behold. Really looking forward to shooting their wedding at the Pavilion Gardens in my old hometown of Buxton next week! 

Helen & Sam Leeds Pre-wedding session

Helen & Sam Leeds Pre-wedding session

Absolutely loved this one!! Leeds is SO MUCH FUN to photograph in when the sun's out, so much yummy light bouncing around all over the place! Helen and Sam were great to shoot, really excited for their wedding now! Met them in a coffee shop (Laynes Espresso, seriously good!) then started out by getting high. Ten stories high on top of a carpark - always a quiet place to begin, up above the busy city streets. Then headed down under the train station - look out for the bonus bicycle - and out to the canal. Pro tip - walking backwards while taking photos right next to the canal is a really silly idea, just managed to catch myself but I really nearly dunked myself!   

Aenea & Pete Sheffield Pre Wedding

STEEL CITY SHENANIGANS

BLOODY HELL I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING IN SHEFFIELD!!Got well giddy running round with these two, there's such a wonderful variety of places to play!Pete: "Do you always get this excited?"Me: "LOOK AT ALL THE LINES!!!"  

Steph & Jamie Leeds Pre-wedding

Steph & Jamie Leeds Pre-wedding Session

I didn't think it was possible for me to be more excited for this pairs' wedding (reasons to follow, keep reading!)  but after a hilarious wander around Leeds in ACTUAL MOTHERFLIPPING SUNSHINE, more excited is exactly what I am!I've been hoping to shoot a wedding at the utterly incredible Abbeydale Picture House in Sheffield since I first set eyes on it, shooting a gig there a while back. Fortunately the events side of things there are run by my pals at Inner City Weddings who after working together in the past knew that I'd be the perfect fit for the first full day wedding there.Insanely cool venue aside (and seriously exciting plans for it - sushi ftw) , what makes weddings fun to shoot is the people, and  Steph & Jamie could not have been more fun to spend the afternoon with, as these photos hopefully make clear!

The Normans Yorkshire Wedding

I arrived at The Normans on the morning of Kat and Dan's wedding, walked in the open front door of the cottage to find breakfast in full swing. Cheerfully introduced myself with the usual smile and explanatory wave of my camera. Was met with stunned silence. Wrong house entirely. Oops!Having found the right cottage I found Kat and her bridal squad having a brilliant time, I love that bridal prep at The Normans is right next door to the ceremony room, makes for a very relaxed morning for everyone.And the ceremony room, wow, what a perfect spot! 

Kayleigh & Simon Leeds pre-wedding

Spent a great afternoon wandering round the bottom of Leeds with these two, found some great patches of light on our travels! Just goes to show with the right people and the right light you can create beautiful photographs just about anywhere! Although yeah, the Corn Exchange is a pretty stunning backdrop too! Planning a wedding in Leeds? Or anywhere else? Get in touch!
