Candid Documentary Wedding Photography Leeds |  Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

When I receive a booking to capture a couple’s wedding, that in itself is enough to get me excited about their day. As I watch my diary fill up its one of the most rewarding aspects of my work as it demonstrates an appreciation for the way that I use my camera to capture what I see. Sam + Chris were no exception to this rule and perhaps even more so as they stretched their initial budget so that they could include me as part of the proceedings. There are lots of reasons why one photographer charges more than or less than another, but the reason why decisions are finally made is more often based on the fact that a particular photographer captures images in such a way that their work appeals more than another’s. Its a bit like buying a house, there are lots out there that would serve the function but only a few that feel like home.

Sam + Chris got married at the their old student haunt, The Faversham, which is located within the grounds of the University – a unique location for a wedding less ordinary; their words not mine but I couldn’t agree more. The place is a blank canvas that allows you to put your own mark on the environment and the food looked great, which besides 2 rings and all of your nearest and dearest is pretty much all that you need, plus the photographer to preserve the big day for you and future generations!

I received the following feedback once the couple had seen their photo’s: ” Thanks so much for being part of our special day and capturing some absolutely blinding moments. You made us both feel at ease immediately and we were very comfortable and happy for you to follow us around all day! Thanks again for some beautiful photos.” Here is a small selection of images from Sam + Chris’ wedding that demonstrate the candid nature of the images that I produce on the day.
