Property Photographer Yorkshire I West Yorkshire Property Photography

We absolutely are loving shooting more and more properties all around the Yorkshire areas now and a few Estate Agents have us as their preferred property photographer (we also have to phone one of the directors of a major player in the property sales world tomorrow as they have expressed an interest in using us, can't say im not nervous for that call, hopefully they will give us a chance to shoot some of their gorgeous properties for sale) 😆

Every time I arrange a property shoot from the initial order right down to when I attend I really do treat them all the same and I also really think you can't pretend to be something your not, anybody that does know me will know I am super friendly and I love getting to know the homeowners and their journey and how long they have been in the property

Just this last week too we shot our first few properties for Earnshaw Kay and the first one we did at 3 Church Lane Mirfield after speaking to the homeowner a few days later told me she had 15 viewers in the last 3 days and the house now has the SOLD sign on literally after a week! If you really do want to SELL your house I will always say that having gorgeous, vibrant and bright images with super straight verticals (thats our ocd) will get couples through your door and then the house will sell itself!

Below are some recent property images and a funky slideshow!

Property Photographer Yorkshire I Earnshaw Kays Mirfield

This eve I was shooting for a local estate agency in Mirfield and wow what a gorgeous 4 bedroom property it was too, I arranged about 5pm as I knew the light would be better around that time and it was literally only down the road so not too far to go.

I must say this house is defo one of the favs I have been too and I loved the big driveway, double garage and really long and private rear garden, plus there was a hot tub that is actually staying and whoever buys the house gets the hot tub as part of the deal!

Below are some shots from earlier, how fab does it look and I defo think this house won't be on the market long at all

Weetwood Hall Pre Wedding I Courtney & James

Yesterday I hooked up with Courtney & James at the gorgeous Weetwood Hall in Leeds and the weather was looking gorgeous with blue sky above (summers here guys)

Courtney & James's wedding is not while next April but Courtney has been a fan for ages now and she mentioned when she was getting married she would defo use us for her Fun Wedding Photography.

Courtney & James also asked if they could do a (pre) pre shoot (kinda a pre wedding shoot before the actual pre wedding shoot which will prob be around March 2020) they even brought the parents along too (great to meet them too and defo a fun loving set of parents)

After a little chat inside Weetwood Hall (never like to jump into anything straight away) I showed Courtney & James some good spots (had a few weddings at Weetwood Hall before) for photos, they didn't even know about the wooded area 👀😊

Below are some highlights from yesterdays FUN with Courtney & James at Weetwood Hall

Property Photographer Yorkshire I Property Photography

Recently we really have had some gorgeous Property Photography shoots around the Yorkshire area and especially the Ossett WF5 area as we are the preferred photographer for a well known Estate Agents in Ossett.

We get notified of new jobs on a phone app and as soon as they come in we try to book the appointment to suit the key holder or agent, a few are empty properties but most we arrange with the home owner. Also at each property we have to do a quick floor plan and measure up so to make this a lot easier we have invested in a Leica Laser Measure and also recently introduced an Apple Pencil doing the floor plans on iPad Air 3 using Adobe Sketch app, this way we can transfer the finished plan to our one drive and add it to the upload when we send the images.

We really do enjoy shooting Property Photography in the Yorkshire area and so much so we are in the process of creating a web site dedicated to our Property Photography (currently we just have a page on our web site)
Love shooting weddings but its defo a nice balance now between wedding photography and property photography.

Some recent Property Photography shoots around the Yorkshire regions below

We really can't stress enough how proper quality professional property images will get your home sold super quick as it gets buyers through the door and the property will sell itself

If you are an Estate Agent or literally somebody with your house on the market or thinking about selling? Do you want quality images? Just getting touch

Oakwell Hall Engagement Photography I Laura & Matt

Yesterday I met up with Laura & Matt at Oakwell Hall for a Pre Wedding Meeting/Shoot, fab day as well in the gorgeous eve light after the horrible weather lately too. Isn't it meant to be summer?
I caught Laura & Matt walking up to meet me with Rocky (their absolutely lovely and super friendly sausage dog)

Literally our pre wedding shoots are absolutely nothing at all the get stressed about and we always include and recommend them win every package as I am sure you will enjoy and hopefully like some of the pics too! This just makes you feel soooooooo much better on the actually wedding day too. The pre shoot is just fun and very relaxed, we never get as much time with a couple as we do at the pre shoot (if only)

Just wandering round Oakwell Hall in the lovely eve light and having fun with Laura, Matt (who I could describe as Jim Carrey at his best, liar liar being a fav film of ours)
It really was nice to get to know Laura & Matt (also rocky) more as this was actually the first time I had met Matt too 😂 and Laura did mention when she met me she knew I would get on with Matt and she loved the fun side!

Anyway I defo could waffle on how much I enjoyed last night with Laura & Matt (and rocky) but I suppose you wanna see some pics right?

Below we have some highlights from yesterday in Oakwell Hall with Laura, Matt & Rocky!

Coniston Hotel Wedding Photographer I Ashleigh & Graeme

Last weekend I was back at the gorgeous Coniston Hotel in Skipton North Yorkshire for Ashleigh & Graeme's FUN wedding. Ashleigh & Graeme actually saw me years ago at Claire & Stephen's wedding at Hazelwood Castle over 5 years ago now and they loved our FUN style of Wedding Photography.

I started early morning in the conference room upstairs with all the girls getting ready and after looking at the weather report everyday for the whole week as we had had some real wet weather to say it was JUNE! #whereissummer I was praying it would stay nice, so far at this point the weather and light was perfect.
Graeme was buzzing about the hotel in the morning too and I loved the jackets Graeme and his guys where wearing (we love being different) so I managed the odd shot of him as he wandered around trying not to look too nervous (didn't look nervous at all tbf)

The ceremony was in the restaurant part and always love this space at Coniston with the open wood beams and barn type feel, the room looked fab!

After the ceremony I always like to encourage some interaction with the Bride & Groom and at Coniston Hotel the conservatory area is literally the next room to the ceremony room (where I set our super wide photobooth backdrop up later in the eve) with gorgeous natural light streaming in through all the big glass windows and roof. After some time getting some congrats type shots I got all the wedding party outside to get a main group shot and confetti (at this point it was starting to drizzle arghhhhhh but as I knew the weather could not ease up I just kept the energy up and got the shots before everyone rushed back inside)

I used the ceremony room for some family shots with a nice white backdrop but also knew the light with the downlighters wasn't the best so was hoping we could re create some later outside in the natural light (always best)

Speeches were before the reception meal and after getting some speeches shots I spent some time in the restaurant getting treated to Haddock & Chips and Mushy Peas (awesome and thanks guys) plus also as I knew some of the staff from previous weddings one of the ladies said she would fetch me a pudding! #result

The rain did stop for a while later in the eve before the night do so I used some time to take Ashleigh & Graeme to the top part of the grounds overlooking the lake and we got the most amazing sunset!

Absolutely FAB DAY with lots of fun & laughter and really loved every minute guys thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day

Literally over 95% of all the images were shots with natural light (apart from the photobooth ones and dance floor and the odd creative flash shot outside, I much prefer the natural light and using awesome Nikon DSLR's enables me to capture lots of images without you being aware. Currently using Nikon D3s (amazing camera) and Nikon D750 (also amazing) with 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8 16-35 F4

Below I have some randomly selected images from the full set of previews which are now available to view online HERE (password protected)

Wentbridge House Wedding Photography I Katie & Phil

Last week on the Sunday for the 3rd of 3 weddings I was back at the FAB Wentbridge House for Katie & Phil's FUN Wedding!

I started early morning with Katie getting ready in Room 61 (great to see Elizabeth again from Glam by Elizabeth Daisy getting all the girls ready and overlooking the gorgeous grounds and I was looking forward to their wedding  too as they had planned the ceremony outside in the folly, so really hoping it wasn't going to rain 😏 as i dont think the ceremony would have gone ahead outside but they do set up the Leatham Suite just in case but always prefer natural light and outside is great! 

Phil arrived mid morning and was buzzing about trying not to look too nervous as he practised his speech and chatted to all the guests and family arriving. I bobbed down to give Katie some time and this is also a good time to capture the action with people buzzing about arriving and getting to know each other before I headed back upstairs to catch Katie looking stunning in her dress.

Yeeeey the ceremony was defo outside and the rain kept off all day as Katie made her way downstairs to see all the guests seated and eagerly awaiting her arrival being given away by her mum.

After the ceremony its great with outdoor weddings as everyone is already outdoors and it just makes it a little easier to crack on with pics, always like to catch some congrats type shots first before setting up a main group and confetti and then into some couple shots and family stuff as well as stacks of fun!

The reception was held inside the Chrystal Suite and it looked fab as ever as everyone was seated and Katie & Phil get announced in like celebrities 😀. One lady guest hadn't managed to turn up so I got a full meal with PUDDING! Thanks guys

After the reception I spent a little time with Katie & Phil in the grounds at Wentbridge House and also just using a little outside as I have got to know some really great places for pics over the years!

The wedding day really was FUN and Katie & Phil didn't want anything too serious (our kind of wedding) and below we have some highlights from another FUN wedding day (fun wedding days are the best)

Property Photographer Wakefield I Property Photography West Yorkshire

Over the last few weeks (in amongst weddings) we really have been super busy (and loving it) with property photography all around our home town of Wakefield West Yorkshire and now we are getting a few estate agents on board as their main photographer. 😀

I really do feel that proper professional property images make your home stand out and as they get seen in the estate agents window and online it gets potential buyers through the door and then literally the property will sell itself.

As I get more confident with property photography I find myself looking at Estate Agents windows and online on their web site and some of the images I see really (in my opinion for what its worth) do NOT show the property in the best light, with very blown out skies, weird converging verticals (bit of on OCD thing with me now part from the odd few where its nigh on impossible to keep the verticals errr vertical)

We are getting orders most days now and really enjoy booking appointments and looking to see where people live (went to one the other day and swear the homeowner should have been an interior designer it looked that good)

Recently we have also had some great feedback too (check below the images

Some recent properties below we have had the pleasure to shoot and get to know the homeowners briefly

If you are an Estate Agent and would love to collaborate with us please GET IN TOUCH we are quite friendly too!

Rogerthorpe Manor Pre Wedding I Hannah & Hayden

I met up with the fun loving Hannah & Hayden earlier today at Rogerthorpe Manor to get some relaxed pics and to go through wedding info. When I arrived I saw Rogerthorpe Manor were holding a wedding open day but after a quick check in with the friendly staff it was totally fine to use the grounds for pics, the weather was absolutely perfect too (if only we can order this for the wedding day)

I always love to meet our couples before the wedding day as I guarantee (hopefully) it makes you feel so much more relaxed on the actually wedding day, and as we have a pre shoot included in every package why not just come have some fun with us?

After some time in the gorgeous grounds and fab weather we sat down outside to go through any idea and wedding info, Hannah & Hayden did mention they didn't want anything too serious! (sounds like our kind of wedding guys)

Below are some highlights from earlier with this fun couple at the gorgeous Rogerthorpe Manor

Hatfeild Hall Wedding Photography I Janine and Adam

Last Saturday for the 2nd of a triple wedding week I was shooting a wedding at a new venue in the Wakefield area of West Yorkshire at Hatfeild Hall (yes thats how its spelt) based in the grounds of Normanton Golf Course with the fun loving couple Janine & Adam and all their FAB friends and family.

I started at Thorpe Park (gorgeous rooms) with Janine and her girls getting ready, the weather looked absolutely perfect and there was loads of clouds all around, just what I love and not harsh sunlight.
After some time with the girls and getting to know Janines awesome fun Dad #potter I set off to Hatfeild Hall to get some shots of Adam waiting patiently plus some guests arriving etc whilst also checking the ceremony room.

The ceremony room looked gorgeous as it was decorated with a nice backdrop to where they would sign the register and not in front of a window (shooting into windows isn't the best idea). After the ceremony I encouraged everyone outside in the beautiful lawned garden area and set about trying to capture as many guests, families and bridal party shots, I knew the weather was staying nice all day so always love to save Bride & Groom shots for early eve, plus we had the whole golf course to wander around with a water fountain down on one of the holes #perfect

Janine & Adam's wedding day defo was filled with laughter, fun and banter (the perfect wedding day for us). Everyone including the staff at Hatfeild Hall were so friendly and welcoming so HUGE thanks guys (thanks for feeding me too)

Below we have some randomly selected highlights from Janine & Adam's PREVIEWS

Property Photography Yorkshire I Property Photographer Wakefield

One thing we are loving is the introduction to Property Photography to our business a few months ago and now every day we are getting orders for property photography all around our home town of Wakefield West Yorkshire, we really love getting to see other peoples homes plus getting to know them a little as we get some interior and exterior shots of their properties.

We have got a few estate agents on board now in Ossett, Wakefield & Huddersfield and really do enjoy organising and shooting the property and getting to learn new ideas and techniques as we go.

Verticals are becoming a bit OCD to us now (we have an awesome photoshop technique and as a pro photographer ALWAYS shoot in RAW) and recently we have invested into a shiny new MacBook Pro to edit as we go whilst waiting around in between appointments.

Some recent property shoots we have been involved with are attached below

Thanks for viewing and please feel free to drop a LIKE on our newly developing Property Photography FACEBOOK Page HERE and get in touch if you want some real professional looking property images or maybe you are an Estate Agent and would like to collaborate?

Holdsworth House Wedding Photography I Kath & Mick

Well what a day yesterday with Kath & Mick at Holdsworth House despite the rather wet weather, it defo was non stop fun all day long so before we start I must say a MASSIVE shout to all the guests and friends and family that attended yesterdays wedding.

I started at Kath's house literally a few doors away from Holdsworth House (there was no excuse for her to be late) and Jenna (our 2nd photographer) was hanging out with Mick and the guys and getting treated to a lift in the car to Holdsworth House from Paul at Westfield Cars whilst I captured shots of all the girls getting ready at Kath's.

The weather like I mentioned was defo a wet day but you know us we don't let anything spoil the fun (weddings should be fun and NOT boring). Jordan was on Video duty too and after some time with the girls and Smudge the cat we made our way down the road to Holdsworth House to check in with Jenna and wait for the Bride's arrival (helped out the car by Tracey from Holdsworth House and Paul from Westfield Cars on brolly duty)

The room where the ceremony was held looked absolutely gorgeous with the LOVE letters and the twinkling lights on the floor, and I also must say a BIG HUGE shout to the registrars who (unlike one at last weekends 2 weddings) didn't mention anything about not shooting the signatures (when they actually sign) as a natural and more journalistic wedding photographer I always think the natural moments are the best.

After the ceremony I encouraged some celebrations as everyone made their way outside (the rain was holding off thank god) for a confetti shot.
As we were already outside I just tried to keep everyone there and set about creating as many groups, fun shots, couple shots etc as possible (must say not one guest moaned once at all about being outside, Kath and Mick you have fab friends)

The reception meal was looked forward to by everyone and as the speeches were after the meal me, Jordan and Jenna had some time to review the shots in the chilled out bar area.

After the meal Kath & Mick went to have some time to freshen up (#rollercoaster #dontmentionit) and came down and said right were ready (how refreshing is that, not once did I have to constantly nag them to get some shots they were little stars all day and also Kath didn't moan once about her dress getting dirty or damp (you only wear the dress one day so just rock it and enjoy every single minute)

At the pre shoot I did discuss a dance off in the eve and Kath & Mick both agreed that would be a fab idea so I organised a Nutty Boys Dance Off to the likes of Madness and The Specials (love a bit of Two Tone)

Below we have some totally randomly selected images from Kath & Mick's EPIC wedding day below so hope you enjoy guys

Bagden Hall Wedding Photographer I Leeza & Steve

The 2nd of last weekends double weddings with Leeza & Steve on Sunday at Bagden Hall. I initially only met Leeza & Steve a few weeks ago at Bagden Hall when they met us for a chat and luckily we had had a cancellation for their wedding day so they secured us there and then to be a part of their fun wedding. We literally only had the pre shoot a few weeks ago too and after some time with them I knew the wedding day was going to include lots of fun and banter (my kind of wedding)

I started early morning at Phillips Hair Salon in Ossett and the weather was a little damp you could say but i knew it was looking good for later on so hoping we got some time outside in the stunning grounds at Bagden Hall with Leeza & Steve and all the family and friends.

The ceremony was inside the main room at Bagden Hall and I really did value all the natural light coming in through the large windows which defo makes it a lot easier as a mainly natural light shooter.

After the ceremony I did manage to get all the wedding party outside for some 'rock star' champagne popping group shots plus a few couple shots before it started to rain rather hard so everyone rushed back inside, I just had to keep watching for the weather to stop raining really and when it did I encouraged some more family shots outside in the natural light and fab grounds plus they had a bouncy castle so who can resist that!

As the time came for everyone to enjoy the reception and speeches inside, after I had caught some shots of the speeches I had some time out in the bar area and got treated to a full 3 course meal #niceone whilst I reviewed the shots from earlier in the day

After the meal the weather was definitely looking better and I had some time with Leeza & Steve around the grounds of Bagden Hall, the eve light was gorgeous but I never want to turn this too much into a photoshoot so just try to make it fun and capture some more natural moments.

Defo a fab, fun filled day with Leeza & Steve at Bagden Hall and thanks so much for inviting me and letting me share your special day guys!

Below are some randomly selected images from Leeza & Steve's previews HERE

The Huntsman Holmfirth Wedding Photography I Sam & Ben

Well after we actually had our very own wedding reception at The Huntsman over 30 years ago (where has that gone) I was back there last Friday for Sam & Bens fun wedding day.

I started  early morning at The Huntsman and checked in with all the girls getting ready in the newly refurbished rooms overlooking Saddleworth Moor.

Ben was due to arrive around midday and he defo looked a little nervous as I bobbed down to see him arrive looking super smart in his suit as he checked out the reception room where the ceremony was to be held.

You really do get great views at The Huntsman in Holmfirth and I was really looking forward to some Bride & Groom time later on as I knew the weather was going to be good ALL DAY!

After the ceremony I encouraged all the wedding party outside to enjoy the garden area whilst they brought out tasty treats (managed to sneak a few) to keep everyone happy until the wedding breakfast.

Massive thanks to the main man running the wedding for sorting me out with some stepladders for the group shot and I always like to use the time before the reception to capture as many family, couple, fun and general wedding shots as poss.

Speeches were before the meal to get them out of the way and I was getting treated to a full meal so headed to the bar area to have some time out and review some shots from earlier in the day

Later in the eve I spent some time with Sam & Ben around the grounds of The Huntsman plus just outside on the road area (love the views) before it was time for first dance, cake cutting and general dance floor madness!

As I left Ben did say thanks so much for making us do stuff we wouldn't have ever done and taking us out of our comfort zone, I really think they did enjoy the wedding day as I know I defo did!

I really do try at every single wedding to make it as natural and fun as possible with minimal fuss when it comes to family shots etc, I want this time to be enjoyable.

Below we have some randomly selected highlights from Sam & Bens PREVIEWS

Engagement Photography at Hatfeild Hall Wakefield I Janine & Adam

Last night in the super gorgeous eve light I met up with Janine & Adam at Hatfeild Hall in Wakefield (yes thats spelt correctly before you write in on a postcard) 😂 to go through upcoming wedding plans and also to try get some nice relaxed pics of this fun loving family

When we met Janine & Adam she was about 7 months pregnant so it was really nice to finally meet little 1 year old Matilda.

We had a little walk around the grounds before we bobbed upstairs into the golfers bar area to go through some ideas, times and general wedding info

Below are some shots from last nights fun with Janine & Adam (loving the funky denim jackets on Janine & Matilda)

On the way home I managed to get the most gorgeous sunset shot too so thought I would add that (like you do)

Creative & Fun Wedding Photography I Amanda & Marc

You know in life when you meet people and you just hit it off? Well thats what happened when I met Amanda & Marc at their home in Doncaster as they had got in touch and wanted to discuss their upcoming wedding plans. I actually forgot what I was there for 😂 as we talked about everything and mostly the 80's (love the 80's)

After showing them a few bits and bobs we offer from albums to signing boards etc they decided they wanted me to be a part of their wedding day 😀

Well last Saturday their wedding day arrived and I started early at Wentbridge House getting shots of Amanda and the girls getting ready up in one of the gorgeous rooms overlooking the nicely cut and striped lawn.

Marc was also staying at Wentbridge so it was nice to find him hanging out trying to not look too nervous and get a few shots whilst Amanda got her dress on. I always love to catch the dress getting laced up too so bobbed back upstairs and I must say the whole getting ready process was so chilled and there was not one bit of running around like crazy trying to get everything done! #wellorganised

The ceremony was held inside the beautiful Chrystal Suite and there was lots of natural light streaming in through the huge patio doors which really does make it a lot easier as I am more of a natural light kinda guy!

After the ceremony I always encourage everyone onto the grounds and the weather was absolutely PERFECT! If I could order weather on a wedding day it would be this! No harsh sun, perfect temperature, loads of cloud etc

What was also really good Amanda & Marc had allowed enough time for pictures after asking me how long I recommend, I always would recommend 2 hours for photos, the time goes far too quick even then! The more time you give us and more you want to do the more shots you get 👊

I never like to jump straight into family shots so after so interaction and couple shots I set about trying to get as many groups, family and fun shots whilst really trying to keep it a more natural vibe with a fun twist! #welovethebanter

Speeches were after the reception meal and I had some time with Amanda & Marc in the eve light as the main room got turned around for the night guests!

Fab wedding, fab couple, fab friends and family! Can we do it all again?

Below we have some totally randomly selected images from Amanda & Marcs PREVIEWS HERE

Gomersal Park Hotel Wedding Photography I Amy & Daniel

A few weeks ago we were back at Gomersal Park Hotel for Amy & Daniel's wedding day fun and celebrations.

I started early morning capturing all the getting ready vibes, make up and hair in one of the rooms upstairs whilst also keeping a look out for Daniel to arrive so I could get some shots of the guys trying to not look too nervous whilst they all headed to the bar area 😉

The weather was super sunny 🌞 so really a nice spring/summer vibe going on (just got to watch for dodgy shadows and squinty eyes and always looking for the best light, luckily I found some shade down at the bottom of the grounds later on for group shots)

The ceremony was upstairs in a room where the reception was to be held with lots of lovely natural light coming in through the big windows, after the ceremony and some meet and greet shots outside in the corridor whilst everyone grabbed a drink I encouraged them all down to the bottom of the gardens (as I knew this would be the best place due to the harsh sun and no clouds for family pics)

After having spent some time and getting as many family, couple, fun, B&G shots as possible or until we were due back in the room to enjoy the reception meal and to listen to the speeches (best mans speech was great)

When the reception had finished and so the hotel staff can turn the room around everyone was encouraged downstairs in the bar area or as it was such a nice evening outside on the patio type area, I also used this time as there was some super golden eve light to spend some time with Amy & Daniel amongst the grounds at Gomersal Park Hotel

In the eve Mrs Image-i-Nation bobbed over to help with our super wide Photobooth backdrop which we set up in the conservatory type area just opposite the room where they were having the evening reception (which worked really well as quite a few folk due to the warm weather were chilling outside and had to come through the conservatory to get to main room)

Below we have some randomly selected highlights from Amy & Daniels FUN Wedding at Gomersal Park Hotel

Family Photography Huddersfield I Greenhead Park Family Photography

Yesterday in-between property shoots I met up with Sarah & Jonny at Greenhead Park in Huddersfield for a Family Shoot (we shot Sarah & Jonnys wedding over 6 years now so it was great to catch up and see the cutest little boy they have, he was so good literally ALL day and I got some fab shots and great expressions from him, plus the light was really great too)

I really try to make our shoots as natural and fun as possible just giving little ideas and directions as we go, always looking for great locations and yesterday in Greenhead Park it was fab!

Bagden Hall Wedding Photographer I Leeza & Steven

Mega fun with Leeza & Steven at their Pre Wedding shoot the other night around the stunning grounds of Bagden Hall. The light really was great again and even on the way home after a busy day of property shoots too I managed to sneak a few sunset shots around the Emley and Castle Hill area (see the last few pics)

We only initially met Leeza & Steven a few weeks ago when they booked us for their fun wedding day stating they weren't keen on too many formal shots and really wanted the day to be more FUN (our kind of couple)

We did some relaxed shots around the gardens first before chilling out just outside the main reception room whilst i showed the kids you couldn't fold a piece of paper more than 7 times (yes I am a bit random) fun times with fun people and below are some highlights from Leeza & Steves Pre Wedding shoot

Engagement Photography Wentbridge House I Katie & Phil

Yesterday eve in the super gorgeous golden hour light I met up with Katie & Phil at Wentbridge House to go through some wedding info for their upcoming special day and also to get some nice relaxed shots in the stunning grounds (which looked amazing btw with the stripes on the lawn)

I always like to make it very relaxed and fun as we get to know each other a little bit better, this was the first time I had actually met them too as they booked on email but have to say Katie & Phil were absolute legends (they did say there weren't as posy or didn't normally like having their photo taken so hopefully they had as much fun as me)

Below we have some highlights from yesterdays fun pre shoot

Enjoy

Property Photographer Yorkshire I Property Photography Yorkshire

Absolutely loving the recent introduction we have to our business in the form of Property Photography and so much so we now have a couple of branches of Estate Agents on board as their preferred photographers. We really do LOVE weddings but to keep our passion shining brightly as ever its important to diversify into other areas of photography and after a phone call around the back end of 2018 from a UK based business wanting to get us on their books for Property Photography in Yorkshire we really got quite excited at a new challenge and after a few properties sent to us they really loved our work (i think we must have been on trial initially)

The last few weeks has been super crazy with quite a few properties sent, we get to see some stunning homes plus just yesterday we received our very first 5 star feedback from a client! #wahoo

We have created a new page on our web site to showcase some property shoots we have been on and will try to keep this updated as we go


CLICK HERE TO CHECK THE PROPERTY SECTION OF OUR WEB SITE

Below are a selection of some of our fav property photography images, they were all shot with natural light and using a simple editing process (see the screen recording below)

We are also thinking about getting a bit creative and introducing some flash mixed with ambient light into our property photography so watch this space

Like I said we still LOVE weddings but will be limiting our weddings to a set amount each year so if you are planning your wedding please GET IN TOUCH for availability.

We have over 12 weddings already booked for 2020
