Trash the Dress Photography Yorkshire | Katie and Dan's Photo Shoot

We spent a fun packed day late last summer with Katie and Dan doing a Trash the Dress photo shoot on Filey beach.  This was a couple of weeks after the couple's wedding and we had such a laugh because Katie really didn't care how dirty or how wet her wedding dress got.  We all had a soaking but it was well worth it for the fun we had and the images we got.  We were aware that we had an audience watching us from along the promenade and we're sure they wondered why on earth we had a bride and groom running through the waves, followed by a couple of nut cases, one with a camera!

Katie and Dan chose six images which we framed together in one of our popular multi image frames. These consist of one large favourite image and five smaller ones.  They look fantastic and are ideal when it's impossible to narrow the choice down to just one photograph for a frame.

You don't have to go as far as Katie did and take the Trash the Dress photography session literally.  It can just be an opportunity to enjoy wearing your wedding dress again, be a model for a day and get some great images to treasure without the pressures and time constraints of the wedding day.  

Prices for this service vary depending on the location you choose for the session but we're happy to travel anywhere within reason.  For more information, please call us on 01977 730159.

Bump to Baby Photography West Yorkshire | Baby Photographer Castleford

Every single one of our clients is special to us but those whose weddings we've captured and who come back to us to have their babies photographed have a really special place in our hearts.

Kate and Lee chose us to photograph their wedding in Huddersfield a few years ago and they came back to us for a maternity photo session when Kate was expecting Daisy.  A few weeks later and the couple returned to proudly show off their baby daughter and for her newborn portrait session.

Fast forward a few months and here we are, Daisy is sitting and smiling for the camera and what a beautiful little girl she is!

Kate and Lee now have the task of choosing their favourite images from all three sessions which we will then design into a bump to baby book as a treasured keepsake for them.  When Daisy is grown up, it will be passed to her - a celebration of her first year.

The complete package including three portrait sessions and a twenty page magazine style album designed around your favourite images costs £600.  Existing clients receive a £100 discount, effectively getting them all three sessions free of charge, as a thank you for their loyalty and their custom.  

If you'd like us to start documenting your precious baby's story, please call us on 01977 730159.

Baby Photographer West Yorkshire | Alissia's Portrait Session

As professional family photographers in West Yorkshire, we are so lucky because many of our clients are very loyal and we often start the relationship by being their wedding photographers.  This was the case when Emma and Dez married and we were their Hazlewood Castle wedding photographers.

This lovely couple came back to us when Emma was expecting Alissia's older sister, Porsha, and we took a selection of maternity photographs.  A few weeks later and it was time for Porsha's new baby photography session.  Fast forward a few months and before we knew it, Porsha was sitting and it was time for the third baby portrait session.  Emma and Dez then had the task of choosing their favourite images from all three portrait sessions which were then designed into a bump to baby book as a treasured memento of Porsha's first year.

We were so happy to hear that Emma was expecting baby number two but events conspired against us and she didn't make it in for pregnancy photographs this time.  We did, however, get to photograph Alissia as a new baby and then her dad brought her into the studio when she was sitting.

This time Emma and Dez decided not to choose any favourite images and to leave the choice of photographs and the book design completely to Alex.  This is just one double page spread from Alissia's baby book and we look forward very much to previewing the whole design to her mum and dad soon.

A package including three photo sessions in the studio and a magazine style album with twenty pages of your favourite images, including personalisation with your baby's name, a choice of album covers and a face to face preview session so that you can view the design first costs £600.  If we photographed your wedding or if you have used our bump to baby photography service for an older sibling, the package price is £500, effectively giving you all three sessions for free. 

To book your maternity photo session, baby portrait session or for more information, please call Janet on 01977 730159

Wedding Photography Rogerthorpe Manor | A thank you note

Delighted to receive this lovely email from Sarah, whose wedding to Richard we photographed last September.  They married at Holyrood church in Barnsley and celebrated afterwards at Rogerthorpe Manor.  

"Can I just say once again, on behalf of myself and Richard, how amazing we think these pictures are, and how they have totally captured the essence and the feeling of our wedding day.  It really brings it all back every time we look at them, and we thank you most sincerely for that.  Every time I look at them I have seen something new, and you have really captured special moments and people's expressions that tell a story in themselves - as well as the whole picture looking so amazing.  THANK YOU doesn't really do it justice what we would like to say to you really, but I hope you know what I am trying to convey.  I think that's why it was so difficult for us to choose our pictures - there were so many brilliant ones to choose from."
