STYLE

NATURAL + RELAXED + PROFESSIONAL

YORKSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Whether you are planning a luxury wedding on a grand country estate or a small intimate venue. We would love to be with you to capture your special memories forever. When you look at your photographs, we want them to you back to how you felt at different moments throughout your day…
Our style is very natural and relaxed with a professional outcome.

We love nothing more than photographing weddings; we know weddings inside and out, back to front. We know all of the key moments to expect and capture during your wedding, we are also always ready for those spontaneous and candid special moments that really show the essence of your day.

Julie and I capture your day as it happens, naturally. These are often the images that mean the most to our couples – the little glances, a touch, a whisper, the dance and all of the laughter. Not forgetting the group photos of family and friends if you wish. We also believe it is really important to spend some time with just the two of you, creating some amazing romantic images that will last forever.

On a full day’s wedding you can normally expect to receive between 350 – 500 fully edited, high resolution images. There are no limits – if we take more and they meet our exacting standards, you will receive more. We will not hold any back; all your photographs come with a personal use print certificate, so you are able to purchase products from a third party if you so wish. We do also have a large range of additional high-quality products available.

Your images will be stored password protect in a gallery online, which allows all your friends and family to view your day.

We guarantee you will be satisfied with the service we provide. Because we love what we do, we always go above and beyond. To see what other couples have said, take a look at our KIND WORDS.

KIND WORDS

OVER THE MOON!

Ray and Julie made us feel at ease and like we had been long term friends from our very first consultation to the wedding day itself! Arriving on the morning of my wedding they quickly fitted in with the hustle, bustle and excitement. Friendly, thoughtful and professional throughout. Immediately liked by family and wedding guests. Ray and Julie went above and beyond to capture truly breathtaking moments of our magical day. They made us feel special and unique. We’re so pleased we chose Ray and Julie to photograph the most important day of our lives. We’re so excited to see the rest of the pictures when we return from our honeymoon. My husband and I are over the moon with the ‘sneak peak’ pictures released which have enabled us to relive the most perfect day we could have wished for over and over again. Thank you Ray and Julie we’re truly grateful! Love from Mr & Mrs Holland.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Ray and Julie were our photographers at our wedding last week. Right from our first consultation we know we had found the right photographers for us, as they made us feel so welcome and took a real interest in us as a couple. The pre-wedding shoot was brilliant, as it took away any nerves we had in front the camera before the big day. On the day itself Ray and Julie were fantastic and it felt like we’d known them ages. They made all our friends and family feel at ease. The photographs they have taken are absolutely amazing, such wonderful memories of our special day. We would highly recommend Ray and Julie to everyone.

PURE GOLD!

Ray and Julie are amazing! They did our wedding photography a few weeks ago and we cannot recommend them enough! They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish, in the build up to the big day they filled me with confidence they had everything in hand, then the morning of the wedding they turned up and just got on with things, introduced themselves to everyone, made sure they knew their names, their roles and generally made everyone feel at ease � they were brilliant on arrival at the church, and afterwards organising everyone and helping get the perfect shot. They just fit in perfectly with the wedding and you could tell they’d done their research of the wedding venue and knew what would and wouldn’t work. They were not only brilliant photographers but also a good laugh, Ray even singing with the band and getting everyone on the dance floor. Pure gold! We have seen the initial shots and they’re amazing and we cannot wait to see the rest. 100% would recommend them for any photography needs! Mr & Mrs Gibbons.

We don’t like our picture taken
Most people don’t! With every wedding collection we offer a complimentary FREE engagement shoot. This is so we get to know you better (and visa versa) also getting you used to having your picture taken, relaxing and most of all having fun. We’ve all seen the photos when you can tell the couple have just met the photographer for the first time on their wedding day…
Can you take some group photos?
Of course we can, we will discuss with you prior to your wedding day about the images you would like us to capture. However your hiring us as experienced professional photographers we won’t carry reams of shot lists around with us, because if we are looking at a list we might be missing that fleeting glance or soft caress.
Can we order an album at a later date?
Of course you can. We have a large selection of albums to suit most budgets.
Do we have to meet?
Yes. We need to know we are suited to each other. We appreciate that if your living abroad we can chat via the internet, but insist on meeting up prior to your big day.
Are you insured?
Yes indeed, We have Public Liability insurance covering us up to £5 million and Professional Indemnity insurance.
What happens if you are ill?
Touch wood we’ve never been ill for a wedding yet. However with our network of photography friends we guarantee you’ll never be left in the lurch.
Can we have just one photographer at a discounted price?
Sorry no. Julie and I come as a team, but we are not charging you any extra. So you’re already getting two photographers for the price of one bonus!
Do you need to see our venue?
Yes. We’ve captured memories from registry offices, Edinburgh Castle and even Mauritius. It might be our past service background but we will always visit your venue prior to your day (that is even if we have photographed there before). Just so we can meet the vicar, speak to the staff, locate those little areas to capture stunning images for you.
How do we book?
Fantastic. If you’ve clicked on this question we have got your attention. Firstly click on GET IN TOUCH and we can check if your date is still free, then we can go from there.
Do you travel?
We sure do! The further the better. If you are in the UK we do not charge mileage, however if you are more than two hours away, if we have to stay over all we ask is for a supplement towards our overnight accommodation. If you are getting married abroad, we have the perfect collection for you.
Will I own the photographs?
We give you all of your photos copyright free for personal use. This means you can print them, email them, share them on social media – pretty much do whatever you like with them, there are virtually no restrictions. We still maintain the overall copyright but all we ask is that you don’t sell your photographs (we’ve never had a couple who wanted to do this! But we have to mention it). If you wanted to get them published in a wedding magazine then we’d just like you to get in touch with us first so we can speak to the magazine about a photo credit. With out this the magazine could incur our commercial photography fees.
How long does it take to get our photographs?
Depending on the time of year, if you’re away on honeymoon etc a maximum of 6 weeks (May-September is our busiest time). We like to share a few images on Instagram and our Facebook Page within a week of your wedding (only if that is OK with you), so make sure you head on over and like those pages so you can see them. You may see some photographers who will say all images available after 2 days, this is normally because they’ve farmed them out to some company abroad to edit them. You can rest assure every image we take is checked and edited by us. So to maintain our high standards it takes time.
What will you wear to photograph our wedding?
We try and dress in a way that makes us look like we could possibly be staff or possibly be guests. Julie wears a smart dress and smart shoes, I wear smart trousers, a shirt, tie and waistcoat finally smart brogues. We need to balance being smart and comfortable with blending in, finding this combination works well. If you need us to be more formal, (or more casual!) please ask – at the end of the day we are representing you in front of your family and friends, as long as what we wear doesn’t restrict our movement (photographers get themselves into a lot of strange positions!) then we’re happy to accommodate.
How far in advance do we need to book?
We limit the amount of weddings we shoot a year, so that we can give every couple the individual attention that we feel each wedding deserves (you’re not just another number to us) so we would recommend booking as soon as you can to avoid missing out. We’ve actually got couples that have already booked us, that have not finalised their date. When they do they are going to make sure we are available.
