Yorkshire wedding photographer

Thank you

We were delighted to receive this email from Laura, sister of and bridesmaid to Becky, whose wedding we photographed in Marsden, Hudderfield in April.

"Alex and Janet - Many thanks for your beautiful work at my sister Becky's wedding to Simon this April.  Although I am yet to see their full album of professional images from yourselves, the work on the site here is wonderful!  You were both fantastic people to have around, not too intrusive and yet simultaneously capturing all the important bits of the wedding in all their glory!  Many thanks for all your hard work."

Engagement portrait session with Rachel and Scott

It was such a pleasure to welcome Rachel and Scott to our studio recently for their engagement session.  We are the wedding photographers for this lovely couple when they marry next month at Hollins Hall in Baildon, Shipley and we are so excited about sharing their special day because they are such a pleasure to be around.

Rachel and Scott had no particular preferences with regard to their engagement sesssion.  They didn't mind what we did so we had a lot of fun with them trying out different ideas and styles.  We like this stunning black and white image.

We recently took delivery of a fabulous red contemporary chair and we used this to give a modern, fashion feel to some of the couple's images. 

These are just two of the amazing photographs we took during the session and we can't wait to show Rachel and Scott the rest of them.  A very enjoyable session, an amazing couple and some really great photographs!

We can't wait for your wedding day because know we'll have an absolute blast!

Wedding Photographer Leeds

Charlotte and Christopher's wedding at Leeds Town Hall and the Marriott Hotel

As Leeds wedding photographers, it was our pleasure to join Charlotte and Christopher as they married at Leeds Town Hall and celebrated afterwards at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds. 

Our first stop of the day was at the couple's home where we were met by a very cheerful and relaxed Charlotte, accompanied by an equally chilled out bridesmaid, Jackie.  With the photographs of Charlotte's beautiful dress, accessories and flowers taken, we left the girls to get ready and set off for the Marriott Hotel in the centre of Leeds to meet Chris.  We joined him and best man Mark and walked to the Town Hall, stopping off enroute to make the most of the interesting backdrops which Leeds has to offer.

Following the ceremony, we took care of the group photographs before Charlotte and Chris set off in their car, whilst the guests, including us, hopped onto a red London bus, to be transported to the Marriott for the reception.

A lovely thing to do - not only did Charlotte take Chris's surname of Bell, he took Charlotte's surname of Holgate.  Congratulations Mr and Mrs Holgate-Bell!

Someone thought the speeches were hilarious!

Thank you Charlotte and Chris for inviting us to share your wedding day.
