Brimham Rocks Engagement Shoot, Amy & James, Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

It was lovely to meet with Amy & James on Saturday morning at an eerie feeling Brimham Rocks.  Being somewhat damp and misty Brimham Rocks had a very different feeling to usual.  It was nonetheless a great location for a pre-wedding photoshoot.  Although the rocks can be climbed on, we kept things safe due to the wet weather and used interesting rock formations to create some interesting compositions and creative photography.  Being misty meant that if there was any distance between myself and Amy & James, they disappeared into the mist so we had to keep things relatively close, and we were not able to take advantage of the scenery that surrounds Brimham Rocks.  The mist however did make for some interesting photography.  The rocks and foliage give some interesting textures which come across great in the photographs and I have tried to highlight the texture and use some interesting compositions.

Amy & James are to be married a little later in the year in the Lake District and I very much look forward to photographing their wedding day.  They are a lovely couple and it was nice to spend Saturday morning with them getting to know them a little better so that on their wedding day they are more relaxed having their photograph taken.  I hope they like the photographs and enjoyed the morning, and hopefully the results speak for themselves.

A very pleasant afternoon was spent with Trudy and Stuart in Museum Gardens in York for their pre-wedding photoshoot, prior to their wedding next week.  In fact despite it being such a cold, damp and windy day we managed to find a break in the weather for an hour or so, as well as some shelter to capture some lovely photographs.  Although not ideal conditions, we still had a fun time and captured some lovely photographs as a result.  Trudy and Stuart are great together and spend most of their time laughing.  The result is they enjoyed the shoot and obviously enjoy each others company.  I thoroughly enjoyed spending the afternoon with them and am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding day on Christmas eve.

Here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

It was great to meet with Kay & Richard prior to their wedding for their pre-wedding photoshoot on Saturday in Museum Gardens.  Originally we arrange the pre-shoot for yesterday at Dalby Forest which would have been a great location for a pre-shoot if the weather had been a little better, but unfortunately with heavy rain all day yesterday we decided it would be a better idea to rearrange to Saturday, which although overcast, remained dry.
Museum Gardens is an interesting location for photography with many areas to it to allow for a variety of images to be captured.  On busy days there are usually areas of the gardens which are quieter, and with the established trees and foliage it makes for some lovely natural photographs.  At this time of year, despite the grey day, there is lovely colour in the leaves which complements the green areas to make for some lovely colourful photographs.
It was lovely to meet with Kay & Richard again before their wedding in February next year.  We had a great morning and I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding.  Here are some highlights from their pre-shoot.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Eleanor & Shahin on Saturday morning for their pre-wedding photoshoot at Museum Gardens in York.  On a rather overcast day, it was surprisingly mild for the time of year, and some of the autumnal colours in the trees in contrast with the lush green grass made for some beautiful photographs.  More so than you would expect for the time of year and the lack of sunshine.  We did however have a great time and it was interesting to hear about the plans for Eleanor & Shahin’s big day which I am photography just before Christmas.  It is a great time of year to get married with everybody in the Christmas spirit and all the Christmas decorations.  Their wedding is to be held at one of my most favourite locations, Goldsborough Hall.  I am therefore very much looking forward to their wedding day and capturing a beautiful Christmas wedding day.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from Saturday for you to enjoy.

Saturday once again saw me at the incredibly stunning location of Fountains Abbey for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Catherine & Anthony.  On a rather dull and wet Saturday morning we made the most of what Fountains Abbey has to offer from the impressive ruins of the abbey to the tranquil picturesque water garden and the Temple of Piety.  There are a lot of areas to explore at Fountains Abbey with so much variety to capture some stunning photography.  For a pre-wedding photoshoot it has so much to offer that we had to be somewhat selective as a whole day can be spent in and around the grounds of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.  There are some distinctive locations that I like to use, but I always find something different and interesting every time I visit, as I want to push my creativity to capture a unique and different set of images.  It also differs depending on the weather, and having photographed in both heavy rain and on a lovely clear sunny day, Fountains Abbey never disappoints.

Although having previously met with Catherine, this was the first time I had met Anthony.  I therefore feel a pre-wedding photoshoot is essential so that I can meet with the couple prior to their wedding day and we can get to know each other a little better, and they can see how I work, and will work on their wedding day.  It was great to meet them both and hear more about their plans for their wedding day, which is only a few weeks away now between Christmas and New Year.  I am really looking forward to it as I thoroughly enjoy working at Goldsborough Hall where their wedding reception is to be held.  In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.

I had the pleasure this morning of spending time photographing Ashleigh & Andrew in the stunning surroundings of Fountains Abbey.  It was their pre-wedding photoshoot prior to their wedding day in February.  We could not have asked for a better morning as is was a beautiful, calm, clear autumn morning.  The ideal conditions for some stunning and creative photography.  At this time of year it was also fairly quiet with not many visitors around so areas we wanted to be to take photographs we were the only people there.

Fountains Abbey has so many areas to it that there never seems to be enough time to completely do the place justice, though we spent a good couple of hours exploring the ruins and the grounds to make the best use of our time to capture some lovely intimate photographs of Ashleigh & Andrew.  It was great to spend some time with them and get to know them a little better.  An example of the results can be seen below.

I very much look forward to photographing their wedding in February and sharing their special day with them.

Yesterday evening saw me at Museum Gardens in York for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Estelle & Neil, whose wedding is taking place in a couple of weeks time at Middleton Lodge in the stunning Middleton Tyas, near Richmond.  With the daylight hours drawing shorter, we had limited time during the early evening for photographs, though Museum Gardens looks stunning not only in daylight but also when the ruins are lit at night.  Unfortunately the park is closed before it gets too dark so we made best use of the time we had.  The weather had been rather wet earlier in the day, and the forecast was for more of the same during the shoot, though were managed a lucky hour with a break in the weather.  It was therefore a very pleasant evening spent with Estelle & Neil.  You can tell we are coming into Autumn as the colours of the foliage is changing.  It makes for a picturesque time of year photographing in the Autumn if the light is right and as you can see from some of the photographs below, there is lovely background colour.

I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding and being at Middleton Lodge again.  It is a great venue for a wedding with some unique features, specifically the oval room with stunning staircase.  Please find below a selection of photographs taken during Estelle & Neil’s pre-wedding photoshoot for you to peruse.

Thursday evening was spent in the very pleasant village location of Brompton near Northallerton, for the pre-wedding photoshoot of Amy & Darren who marry in a few weeks time at St Thomas Church, Brompton.  It is a quaint village with a large village green with a beck running through it so was a lovely location for a pre-shoot.  Amy & Darren were both a little nervous about having their photograph taken, which often happens when using a public place during a pre-shoot.  In the past members of the public have stopped and taken photographs themselves of the couple, presumably believing them to be a famous couple.  A pre-shoot however does enable the couple to get used to having their photograph taken in public.  On their wedding day they are much more prepared, know what to expect, and with them being in their wedding attire, it feels a little more natural to be seen having photographs.  On a wedding day it is of course not just myself taking photography, but most of the wedding guests.  I am sure that Amy & Darren did not feel as conspicuous towards the end of the photography shoot as at the beginning, which will certainly help them on their wedding day.

I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding and if the weather stays nice, it will be a beautiful location for a wedding, allowing guests to have drinks on the village green.  Below is a selection of photographs from their shoot for you to enjoy.

It was lovely to be back today at Fountains Abbey for the engagement shoot of Natalie & Richard.  Fountains Abbey is a fantastic location for a pre-shoot as it is very picturesque with extensive grounds, and lots of opportunity for some stunning photography.  Arriving early meant we missed most of the crowds as despite it being a Wednesday it is school holiday time, and Fountains Abbey is a very popular location for families especially on a lovely summers’ day like today.

Making the most of both the ruins and the formal gardens, we spent a couple of hours having a relaxing morning, capturing some stunning natural photographs of Natalie & Richard.  Natalie & Richard’s wedding is in a few days time in Leeds and I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding day.  In the meantime here is a selection of photographs taken during their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.
