    Holmfirth Vineyard Pre Wedding Shoot

    I met up with Claudia & David on Sunday at Holmfirth Vineyard to go through wedding info and to get some relaxed & natural shots of this fun couple, the weather was gorgeous with blue skies all around.

    I really do enjoy the Pre Wedding shoot and always recommend this as it makes me and the couple (hopefully) feel a lot more relaxed about things for the wedding day (i do know Claudia was slightly nervous at the start so hopefully she felt better after)

    There really is some stunning views at Holmfirth Vineyard and I am looking forward to the wedding day. I also discovered a good spot nearby for some extra shots on the road  so really hoping we get chance to go here on the wedding day too

    Below are some randomly select shots to create a collage of images from over 100 now online

    Wentworth Woodhouse Pre Wedding

    Today I met up with Emma & Joe for their pre wedding meeting/shoot, it was a new venue for me at Wentworth Woodhouse and I have to say as soon as I went through the gates and saw the building I knew there would be lots of opportunities for photos. The first job was to check in with reception to say hi then (even though it was a bit windy) get the drone up for some aerial shots, it looked awesome

    Emma & Joe arrived just as I was putting the drone away so we hooked up with Tracey (one of the staff) and she walked us round giving us some history of the place before we all (minus Tracey) walked around the gorgeous grounds to get some relaxed shots of this FUN couple.

    After some time and exploring the areas around Wentworth Woodhouse we sat inside the cafe area to go through wedding info and ideas

    Below is a random selection of images from earlier with Emma & Joe.

    London Photographer Xmas 2021

    Well December was a great month with some time off in London as well as various other things. We absolutely LOVE London and I always enjoy shooting whilst down there (all images in this post shot with iPhone)

    We set off on the train (so much easier than driving and trying to find a parking place too) and after a few train problems (sat for a few hours and a few brews not going anywhere) we eventually arrived in London at Kings Cross before getting a taxi to our hotel just round the corner from the London Eye

    Whilst we were in London we made sure we did lots of stuff including a visit to the Winter Wonderland, checking out how gorgeous inside the Savoy is (how friendly were the staff absolute FAB), we visited Buckingham Palace and Harrods in Knightsbridge plus lots of other stuff. London really is an experience and I always enjoy time there. Maybe one one I will take my DSLR down and get some night time shots? How fab would that be?

    All the images shown here are nothing special they are just from my iPhone with minimal edits if any

    Enjoy and have a fab New Year and see you in 2022

    Kings Croft Wedding Photographer

    Back in September I was at Kings Croft for Chantelle & Joe's wedding, the weather really was spot on too and signs of Autumn were on the way (love autumn).

    All Chantelle & Joe's friends and family were just so much fun and I could defo tell this was going to be a fab day (it was nice to see Sally & Luke there too as I shot their wedding a few years back)

    I always like to start getting all the girls getting ready vibes and the rooms at Kings Croft really are great with lots of natural light. Joe arrived later so I bobbed down to get some shots of him trying to not look to nervous and some interaction with his groomsmen and wedding guests etc

    The wedding ceremony was outside in the pavilion amongst the gorgeous gardens and after this is great as it means everyone is so much easier to organise due to them not being all over the place. Its always nice to get as many family and friends shots in this time too and as I knew the weather was staying nice all day I left the B&G shots till later (when they would feel more relaxed too)

    Massive thanks for feeding me (i got a full 3 course meal nice one food was amazing too)

    Funky dancing till late into the eve on the huge dance floor, love this time too and being in the zone and on the dance floor you just get great shots

    Below are just some totally randomly selected highlights

    West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer - Courtney & James

    Back in April for the wedding ceremony CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE BLOG POST then in September for the eve reception and night do I was shooting Courtney & James's wedding. To get to this point there had been quite a few plan changes due to the awful covid (at one point we were all going over to Ireland, which is a shame as we weren't allowed) but hey ho never to let anything stop her Courtney stayed positive throughout and adapted where necessary.

    Both days were perfect, I have known Courtney for quite a while now and James (the names bond) is the most chilled out guy I know that would do anything for anyone, how cute I just love these guys plus did I mention they have the most friendliest cutest doggie and I always get a welcome when I visit! The parents aren't too bad either 😜 (tbf I love them too)

    Anyway I could honestly waffle on for ages how much I love this family but lets see some randomly selected highlights below...

    Oulton Hall Wedding Photography - Lauren & Chris

    Back in August I was back at the amazing Oulton Hall (defo a fav venue for shooting weddings) for Lauren & Chris's wedding day.

    I started early morn at Oulton Hall with all the girls getting ready and the weather was just perfect with the most amazing light and blue sky. Lauren & Chris had booked me as they wanted something a bit more FUN & Natural plus they did want some Creative lighting shots too (looked forward to getting creative later).

    After shooting weddings for about 15 plus years you just know when its going to be a good day and as I got to know all the friends and family as the day unfolded I just knew this was defo up there as one of the best!

    The ceremony was set outside (love outside wedding ceremonies for the natural light) and its great after for cracking on with as many family and groups shots plus its made a lot easier as everyone tends to stay in one place longer.

    The ceremony was inside the big room and it just looked absolutely stunning (if carlsberg did weddings)

    After the reception and speeches we spent some time wandering around the gorgeous gardens and inside the beautiful hall, getting the drone out where possible too

    Lauren & Chris I really want to say a HUGE thanks for letting me shoot this day and be part of the fun and madness that was your wedding, you rock!

    Wedding Photography Huddersfield - Heidi & Dan

    Back in July in the super gorgeous red hot summer it was Heidi & Dan's wedding at Liversedge Church then over to 315 in Lepton Huddersfield for the reception and to carry on the wedding fun!

    The weather was red hot and the sun super shadowy so when it came to doing some family shots after the ceremony I felt lucky we had a little shaded spot round the back of the church.

    Heidi is such a positive spirit and I don't think I have ever seen her not smiling or being her fun self (just love that) Dan is more chilled and laid back but defo a winning combo!

    All the wedding guests and family were just as mental and as fun loving as Heidi & Dan and I absolutely just loved the whole day. The eve we were treated to fireworks from across the road in a neighbouring field as the light went down!

    What an awesome wedding day and thanks to Heidi & Dan for inviting us to celebrate their love!!

    Wentbridge House Wedding Photography - Jess & Louis

    Back in June (sorry for lack of blog updates) I was back at the gorgeous Wentbridge House for Jess & Louis's wedding day, before the ceremony at a lovely church in Rothwell. The weather was great all day and despite the last week of lockdown restrictions guest were in good spirts too.

    I had Danny on 2nd shoot duties plus Jordan on Video, I started at Jess's parents house just round the corner from the church for getting ready shoot before heading down to the church, there was even a reporter from the local paper getting in on the action too.

    After the ceremony everyone headed over to Wentbridge House to carry on the fun, I have recently introduced a drone and was really looking forward to trying it out.

    What a fab day and thanks to Jess & Louis for inviting us to capture it

    I met up with Chantelle & Joe earlier at Kings Croft to go through upcoming wedding info plus get some relaxed and fun shots of them in the lovely grounds. The weather was gorgeous too with lovely blue skies all around so defo chance to pop the drone up!

    I started with some shots by the outside ceremony pavilion type thing and as they had brought their 3 cute lads and doggie I knew we would have some fun. Literally just wandering and exploring around the gardens and just using the natural light with a 70-200 lens on the Nikon.

    Oulton Hall Pre Wedding Photography

    This morning I hooked up with Lauren & Chris at the gorgeous Oulton Hall to get some nice relaxed and fun pics and also as this was the first time we had met get to know them a little better before their wedding in August this year. We had to literally bribe the kids to maccy d's later to get some smiles 😜

    I always like to make the pre shoot as fun and natural as possible and it also gives me and the couple chance to see how we work on the wedding day, I don't (like some) spend hours doing lots of unnatural and stiff posing I just want the wedding day to unfold as naturally as possible but with lots of fun and banter!

    The light today was perfect too so here's hoping its similar on the wedding day? I also had the drone up before Lauren & Chris arrived

    So last month it was time for Becky & Neils's FUN wedding at the magical Wentbridge House, I met Becky & Neil at one of Wentbridge House's Wedding Showcases and you know when you meet someone and feel like you could have been mates forever well that's it, these guys were awesome and so much fun on the pre wedding shoot and on the wedding day.

    I started in the morning at Wentbridge House for all the girly getting ready vibes and the weather was absolutely spot on for their outdoor wedding (love outdoor weddings in the natural light), spending time capturing all the make up, hair and all the small details that go into planning your big day before heading down to see the guys buzzing about trying not to look too nervous, tbf Neil was a cool character and such a good laugh!

    The ceremony was outside inside the folly and after we spent time capturing group shots, couple shots and general bridal party shots before I had some time with Becky & Neil in the gorgeous Wentbridge House grounds, I also knew the eve light would be epic so I was getting them back out later in the eve for some more B&G shots PLUS I got the new Drone out for some aerial shots of the grounds

    Becky & Neil you were absolute legends and you made the wedding day so much more enjoyable and fun just as it should be

    Wedding Photographer West Yorkshire - Courtney & James

    In April (seems ages ago now, where does the time go) I was shooting Courtney & James wedding celebrations at a local church then they were going back to a teepee set up at a local venue (as that's all sadly) that was allowed during these strange times.

    I started at Courtneys with all the girls getting ready and the weather really looked great. James (the groom) stopped by also so I took the opportunity to get a few shots of him with his guys outside the house (curtains closed so the bride and groom didn't see each other)

    It was great after such a long time plus not very many weddings to get back to some wedding fun and I must say Courtney & James and ALL their family and friends made the day so much easier so thanks guys x

    The church was virtually round the corner and everyone had to wear a mask throughout the ceremony :-/ and there was only 15 guests allowed inside the church.

    I managed to get some shots outside the church and also some bride and groom stuff before I got Courtney & James in my car to take them to some open fields for some more shots then headed to the teepee for drinks and speeches

    Below are just some randomly selected images from the previews

    Thanks for looking

    London Street Photography

    Well I really hope you guys are enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having? Last weekend we went down south to London (love London) and armed with the Panasonic TZ100 I wanted to get some natural street photography, the TZ100 is so small and allows me to be discrete and to capture shots I would otherwise miss using the Nikons, the TZ100 also shoots in RAW so defo its a great camera with a fab optical zoom.

    We stayed 3 nights and also whilst there witnessed the demonstrations all about the lockdown where the MSM said there were 100 ish folk there, seriously it was more like 1 million! I really do love London and will visit regular plus we had the added benefit that it was an awesome weekend bank holiday style weather wise!

    Some totally randomly selected shots below, please enjoy and leave a comment if you enjoy this post

    Ossett Brewery Commercial Photography

     A few weeks ago in-between property shoots I nipped down to Ossett Brewery after being contacted by Leanne to get some new and updated shots for their web site.

    It was really fascinating to see how it all worked and I have to say the place was spotlessly clean. Leanne showed me around and we all had to wear a mask due to new covid regulations, plus all the workers did too.

    They have a place inside the brewery where customers can visit, try out all the different beers and look and purchase some of the items they have for sale, though with new regulations (hope we get back to normal asap) this wasn't allowed 😞


    It really was a fab experience and I enjoyed getting a tour of the brewery, below are just a handful of pics

    Natural Family Lifestyle Photography in Wakefield

    Sorry for the lack of BLOG posts guys but due to COVID I am not shooting any weddings but hopefully will be back to fun weddings soon as they are allowed, keeping me super busy though is our Property Photography we added over a few years ago now (love it), check out the new web site and BLOG

    One thing I did before the 2nd lockdown was hook up with a gorgeous family I met a few years back now and after Nicola & Jon had little Jack about 2 years ago they have asked me to shoot some natural and fun pictures of them and him as he grows, I always love hanging out with fun couples and pictures are memories for ever so it really is great to capture Jack as he grows up

    Anyone who knows me will know I love the Autumn vibe too all all the colours so after Nicola & Jon suggested this location and I saw it I was thoroughly pleased (though I did put a 2nd pair of shoes in the car as they got caked in mud)

    We met the odd cute dog on route too and said hi to all the walkers, some stopping for a picnic to which Jack was a bit jealous he didn't have anything to eat 😂

    Below are just a quick handful from over 600 plus shot using one camera and one 70-200 lens (keeping things super simple)

    Pre Wedding Shoot at Woodlands Leeds

    Yesterday I met up with the fun loving Olivia & Dan at Woodlands Hotel in Leeds and we had the whole venue to ourselves as they were still closed due to lockdown and covid rules (such a shame) though I must say it was absolutely fab to have the whole grounds to ourselves, they looked amazing too (we had actually arranged the shoot beforehand)

    Olivia & Dan were a little nervous at the start as they mentioned to me but as always I like to chat about anything and everything before jumping straight into shooting as I always feel this gives them a time to take a breath and relax more before we just literally walk around the gardens, looking for that good light, me just giving some direction and lots of ideas, I always find that I just see something there and then even the smallest thing that maybe the couple do and I will turn it into a pose, always got to love props too and there was a few yesterday :-)

    Massive shout to Olivia & Dan for being superstars and really getting into the day and enjoying theirselves, after all thats a huge part of why I do what I do!

    Some highlights below from a fab afternoon at Woodlands Hotel with Olivia & Dan (hope you managed to find Grease 2)
