We at Ray and Julie Photography want to help you remember the finer details. The amazing dress, the stunning cake and the beautiful flowers. We also want to capture the way the mums cried at the speeches and the way everybody laughed when granny sneezed as the officiate asked; “Does anyone know of any reason this couple should not be wed?”
Offering a Reportage style of wedding photography (sometimes called documentary or journalistic-style coverage) we aim to arrive early to photograph the bride and her attendants as they spend time together preparing for the day. We will be outside the venue as the groom and guests arrive and we’ll stay with you right until your first dance.
As a married couple ourselves, we’re delighted when asked to be a part of anyone's wedding day. We know how much this day means to you and we offer a bespoke personal service to reflect that.
On the day, we will arrive well-presented and prepared. Having already worked together on your engagement shoot, we'll be sure of the style of photography you’re looking for, how you would like us to capture it, any group photographs you would like and any scenic parts of the location you favour. Blending into your wedding so as not to appear obtrusive, yet enabling us to capture those spontaneous moments.
Of course, we’re also happy to capture traditional family portraiture if you would like us to. We’ve developed the skill of carrying this out without taking up lots of time with numerous staged poses but making it a fun part of the day. We've been invited to photograph weddings at venues throughout Yorkshire and beyond and this allows us the privilege of knowing popular wedding locations well. If, however we have not photographed your chosen venue previously, we will visit the location before the day to familiarise ourselves.
Our exquisite albums, hand crafted in Italy, with a lifetime guarantee are the perfect way to present your wedding images and when arranged in the reportage style, offer a sincere and beautiful interpretation of the whole day. Parent albums and canvas, traditional prints and digital files are also available as additional elements, if not included in your bespoke collection.
Our wedding collections all include a complimentary engagement photo-shoot prior to the big day. After the wedding day, we will invite you to join us, by appointment at our studio based in Beverley, East Yorkshire. There you will view your wedding images and make your album selections. We offer complete wedding collections from £995. Our collections are composed with you in mind and offer light to complete coverage to meet your budget and requirements.
We are Ray & Julie, award winning, experienced, highly skilled wedding photographers specialising in reportage style coverage of your day from start to finish. We will ensure that you can look back on your wedding day, ten, twenty, fifty years from now and smile, laugh and shed a tear as your magnificent, Italian hand-crafted, lifetime guarantee wedding album to displays your memories like it was only yesterday.
