Our York Photography Approach
Our approach to North Yorkshire wedding photography is relaxed and unobtrusive, but we aren’t “ninjas.” At best, we are Pokémon trainers. In all honesty to be a ninja, there is just too much hiding in the bushes and preparing for surprise attacks.
Instead, we hide in plain sight, having fun and chatting with your guests all whilst being your eyes and ears on the day. Because we get to the heart of the moment, when you look back at your photos, you are getting to live the day again – not just see it.
With over a decade of wedding photography experience, we consider ourselves to be first and foremost North Yorkshire documentary wedding photographers. However, we also know how important it is to have a few “tidy” shots so you can put up a respectable front. So feel free to throw all the shapes on the dance floor – we’ve got your back.
Fun North Yorkshire
We don’t just specialise in North Yorkshire documentary wedding photography – first and foremost , we specialise in making your wedding photography experience easy. We want our couples to spend the maximum time on their wedding day being hugged by friends and family – not disappearing off to a photoshoot.
We use everything in our magic bag of tricks to make sure you can enjoy all the things that matter to you at your wedding. From expert advice on how to get amazing photos without the fuss, to help with your planning process to ensure you aren’t run off your feet – we share all of our heard-earned expertise to make sure that fun is the catch-word of the day. .

How to get the most from your North Yorkshire Wedding Photography
Be Rain Ready
Weddings in North Yorkshire have some of the most beautiful backdrops in the world. But although many things are perfect about North Yorkshire, this is after all England and that means one thing – rain.
There is absolutely nothing about rain that has to spoil the shenanigans on your wedding day if you are just a little prepared. You know what they say, if you fail to prepare, be prepared to fail.
Having photographed well over a hundred rainy weddings, we have compiled a practical guide to rainy weddings with real world solutions and advice.

Whether you decide to invite kids to your wedding (or not!), we fully support your decision. Every couple should have the wedding day they want if for some people, that means babysitters ahoy!
But for those North Yorkshire wedding couples who decide to make it a family affair, it is always important to consider the day from the eyes of the younguns’ you have invited. Whilst it has become standard fare to include a colouring book and some toys on the table, there are many more simple ways you can improve the experience of the children at your wedding.
We have years and years of experience photographing weddings and we have picked up a trick or two along the way to help you find the best ways to include children in your wedding day. (Not to mention 22 years of having our own spud to take care of!)
