I'm Ben Cumming, a wedding photographer from Leeds, West Yorkshire. I photograph weddings in and around Leeds and the beautiful county of Yorkshire.
Memories are precious, particularly in this age of instant information and digital communication. What's important to me is preserving the memories of your special day and making those images as evocative, personal and magical as the wedding day itself. When you look at your wedding photographs I want you to be transported back to that wonderful day time and time again.
As part of my service I offer a pre-wedding shoot, during which we'll get to know each other before the big day – I'll get a deeper understanding of what it is you want from the photos and make them unique and personal to you. For me the beauty is in telling the story, the bridal and groom preparations are so important. To be able to also see your partners day from their perspective too. The getting ready, the personal effects such as the wedding shoes, the groomsmen in their suits, that perfume, the anticipation as the time ticks closer to the wedding ceremony..
The wedding venue, that special place you fell in love with. Let me preserve that feeling in an image for you..
Family and friends are there to share your joy with you too. These moments are also special. The pride of the father of the bride, walking you down the aisle, the smiling tears at the ceremony, the friends jostling to get their picture of you cutting the cake, the laughter at the wedding speeches, the care and consideration that went into dressing the room for your wedding breakfast... all these moments matter.
It's also important to think about specific group shots you might like too. It's good to be organised and keep your wedding day running smoothly allowing you and your guests to enjoy the day to its fullest potential.
I love to capture your first dance and take romantic twilight shots... let's think these things through and discuss them at your wedding consultation ensuring anything you need to inject the final photos with the passion, romance and the beauty of your actual wedding are all there.
I offer a package that can be customised to reflect your own unique requirements and your budget, and together we can create a series of unforgettable images that will return you to the magic of your beautiful Yorkshire wedding for years to come.
It's my job to create an album of wedding photos that reflect the personalities and the emotions involved in this most cherished event. Because memories are precious, and your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life.
All of my Wedding Albums are custom designed and beautifully handcrafted. Details can be found in the wedding packages section of my website. These are all made in close consultation with you, allowing you to proof your final wedding album to ensure your precious memories are exactly as you want them to be shown.
