By booking us you are hiring an individual or team that aims to capture real moments for real people. My aim as a photographer is to help your day be as relaxed & fun as possible, I love to capture all those important moments & all the fun bits in between too. I firmly believe laughter is the key to happiness in life so I make it my mission to capture & create as many happy moments by getting my couples laughing & smiling together naturally. It’s the bits in between the so called “posed” shots that are the real moments I love to capture. check out my full wedding photography portfolio by clicking here. When myself or a member of my team capture video for you too our aim is the same but the Videographer usually take a bit of a backseat & just capture things as they happen without much interaction.

How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day I will always be on call to chat to you about your day. Together we will figure out the best moments for the couple photos, group photos & anything else you want me to capture. It's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, set dressing or anything that can help me visualise your day before it happens. On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding so unique. That's why I've decided to focus on photographing in a non-traditional and laid-back wedding style, you could call it documentary style. I do however if given the opportunity love to create spectacular images for my couples & I love working with colour & light so if that is something you're interested in be sure to speak to me about this.
Where are you based and do you travel?
We are based in the North of England in Yorkshire, UK and yes we love to travel! If you want us to capture your story, it may require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place but it's no worries, we have drivers in our team so we can get to anywhere that is required.
When will we get our photos?
As with all my couples I aim to give you a few highlights photos (up to 10) on your wedding day so you can share on your social media accounts to announce your marriage, better a high quality image from your photographer than a phone image from a friend I always say. You will also get some Polaroid prints of these images too to take home with you on your wedding day. You will then receive a link to your online gallery with all your photos within maximum 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story however I do say the whole process can take up to 2-3 months just to be safe as peak times like summer can be a very busy). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them with friends & family, choose your favourites, and also order prints, photo-books & canvases.
How many pictures will we receive?
For most wedding days we are usually with you for around 8 hours coverage, & normally you will receive between 400 to 600 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity but at the same time every wedding day is different & some have a lot more activities going on than others which can affect the amounts of photographs taken.
Not only do we offer photography but wonderful wedding videos too, there's nothing better than having one of our highlights videos to rewatch over & over again. We also have a great offer on both photo & video coverage of your big day so be sure to enquire about that as you can book both with us & not have to worry about having to rely on two separate companies.
We just love capturing weddings. They are such special days and it's so refreshing and heartwarming to work on as everyone is so happy and excited. Capturing people's natural reactions and trying to avoid shooting things that look staged is how we operate - No one wants to have a camera in their face all day when you're surrounded by your best friends and family. But we will capture some romantic shots of you both looking stunning to make your mums cry but keep our focus on candid, fun shots of you and your guests having a great time that will make you smile every time you look back on them. Your wedding day is something that you will remember and look back on for the rest of your life so getting it filmed is an important souvenir.

—Sam & Paul
“I can't even begin to describe how happy we are with the pictures they are beyond what we ever expected and we can't thank him enough for capturing our day so beautifully. Brendan was so chill and easy to get along with which helped us relax and he was really patient with a stroppy 4 year old. He was really good at giving us directions and found some amazing shots for us to try our own twist on which turned out to be some of our favourite pictures. I would 1000% recommend Brendan to capture your day.”
—Kristy & Scott

“Brendan and Joel gave us memories we will treasure for the rest of our lives. In Jan 2019 we asked Brendan if we would photograph our wedding with Joel videoing it for us too. They were both absolutely fantastic and made us feel so at ease during the entire day! The results are breath taking. In fact we can’t stop watching the videos and the photos have proven to make the most magical photo album. We have recommended both to numerous people who we know have gone on to book and will continue to do so!”

“Brendan was excellent to work with as our photographer for our special day. He was professional and thorough throughout the entire day. I would highly recommend him to anyone as his service and professionalism was spot on. He was relaxed and easy to work with and was innovative in taking different shots, selfies and backgrounds. Brendan took a small number of Polaroid’s throughout the day and then gave them to us at the end of the night as a little gift from him. What a nice touch that was.”
—Angela & Ryan
“What an amazing day we had made even better by our great photographer and videographer. Brendan is great fun and was fab with the guests and was with us til the end of the day.

Book now while you can. You won’t be disappointed.”

They played a massive part in making our day perfect...thank you once again!!”

The weather was dreadful but in between torrential rain he managed to capture some great shots of the location and some very imaginative ones indoors. Thank you so much what a talented guy we would not hesitate to recommend him.”
