Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

I’m Ben Cumming, a professional Yorkshire Wedding Photographer.

I originally started out photographing weddings in Leeds. Now as a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer my work takes me across the whole of the county, including towns and cities such as Huddersfield, SheffieldBarnsley, Wakefield as well as Doncaster and my home town of Dewsbury.

Are you looking for a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer?

Your dream Yorkshire wedding day awaits when you find the best wedding venues and photographers. It’s no secret that Yorkshire is the place to for weddings throughout Northern England, with stunning sceneries for either a destination wedding or ceremony close to home. If you have your sights set on a Northern UK wedding, whether it be at the historic East Riddlesden Hall or along the rich countryside of Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge, it’s a good idea to start looking at a Yorkshire wedding photographer.

The sooner you get in touch, the better, as you can find the best UK wedding photographers who have a real passion for capturing Yorkshire wedding memories on camera. As an experienced wedding and portrait photographer, I would love to hear from you as you continue to plan your ideal wedding day in Yorkshire.

The Value of Beautiful Wedding Photography

Your beautiful love story deserves to be told through gorgeous wedding photographs. While you’re busy having fun on your wedding day, a Yorkshire wedding photographer who is experienced in weddings should be hard at work, capturing photos that match your style. Just like hiring a baby photographer for the birth of a new arrival or a corporate portrait photographer for a new business launch, it simply makes sense to bring in a photography expert who knows a lot about weddings.

Phenomenal Photos From a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

It certainly helps to have a Yorkshire wedding photographer who has worked events throughout North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. Not only can your wedding photographer help you understand your wedding photo packages, but they may also have some great recommendations for venues. Being on the same page as your photographer in terms of what you want from your wedding can open up the discussion on where to get married and where to snap the best images. Bolton Abbey in the Yorkshire Dales or the Pavilions of Harrogate are ideal wedding venues, with couples and their guests alike appreciating the historic scenery. Laura Cottage in Pickering, North Yorkshire and Oulton Hall in Leeds (where I am recommended) are some other picture-perfect wedding venues that make for one pretty epic wedding album. Wherever you get married, any photographer you choose to document your wedding story should be able to work with your North Yorkshire or West Yorkshire wedding venue to get the best angles for breathtaking wedding photography.

Discover Your Wedding Day Photography Style

If you’ve been waiting your whole life for your wedding day, you’re certainly not alone. So many people dream of this day, and it only makes sense that you want incredible wedding images to remember the day once it’s all over. One of the best ways to make sense of your wedding photography style is to chat with a wedding photographer and take a look at their portfolio, paying attention to some of these common photo trends from weddings around the globe.

  • Traditional – the wedding photographer shoots most photos at eye level with classic poses of the bridal party and the families.
  • Dramatic – dark tones and intense moods are captured on camera by an experienced wedding photographer who focuses on shadows and dynamic lighting.
  • Landscape – outdoor weddings are ideal for capturing captivating landscape shots showing the happy couple surrounded by breathtaking views such as valleys, mountains and coastlines.
  • Fine art – weddings with fine art photography have light and airy images with bright colours for a film-inspired look.

My style encompasses candid wedding photography with dramatic portraits of the bride and groom.

Priorities for Successful UK Wedding Photography

Juggling your job and family while also planning a wedding can be a lot, but organising proper photography takes some of that stress off your shoulders. Knowing that your photos are sorted allows you to focus on all the other things that come with weddings, such as the dining, drinks and dancing. Wedding photographers are a wonderful resource for bringing your ideal wedding to life, especially when you focus on a few key factors with your choice of photographer. Professionalism is first and foremost. While technically you could hire a family member or friend to snap pictures, or just rely on guests’ phone snaps, you’re not going to get nearly as high-quality photographs as you may want for your wedding. You only have this day once, and you want to make sure it’s captured the right way.

In addition to hiring a knowledgeable wedding photographer who understands and respects your wishes, you also need to make a list of priority shots you must have. If you want the majority of images to be of you and your beloved, but you absolutely want at least a few of you and your parents with childhood friends, then don’t be afraid to say so. The best wedding photographers do this without asking, but it’s never a bad idea to be upfront and honest about your expectations. A few conversations about the expectations for your wedding photographer and what you will get for the price you pay goes a long way.

What You Can Do With Yorkshire Wedding Photographs

Hopefully, you get everything you’ve ever wanted with your wedding day, from the dinner menu to the people on the guest list. All of the big moments, as well as the smaller yet still significant details, can be captured on camera for a truly memorable wedding album. Pictures from your wedding will make great gifts for your significant other and your family members, as well as tokens of appreciation for others who helped bring your magical marriage celebration together. After all, many couples reflect on their wedding and say investing in a wedding photographer was money well spent for both them and their loved ones.

Hiring a Seasoned Expert in Wedding Photography

With some captivating historic venues in Harrogate, Leeds and so many other places across the region, renowned wedding photographers should have some fairly detailed portfolios and connections in the wedding industry. The more experience they have, the higher your chances are of receiving the spectacular wedding images you want and deserve.
