I'm a professional wedding and portrait photographer from Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
I have been taking wedding photographs professionally since 2007 alongside my long suffering wife Carol. I offer relaxed, natural and informal wedding photography at affordable rates. All packages are duration based to suit a variety of budgets.
I believe in giving the clients the digital images to reproduce as they wish, this way they don't need to pay twice for expensive reprints. Although I do offer album design, as clients have the full resolution digital images, they are free to create their own beautiful albums as they wish.
Commercial Photography Yorkshire Usually when I am a bit quiet on the wedding photography front, generally the winter months I try and do a bit of commercial photography. I’ve had a few projects recently just getting images for companies who are either making or redesigning their websites and quality photographs play a vital role in ... Read More
Hey folks, saw this abstract art technique recently and thought I’d put it out there if you didn’t know about it. Light trails can make some great images, all you need is a tripod and a small light (and a camera, obviously). It relies on opening the shutter for several seconds and drawing something with ...

I was out on the bike with a friend today and we decided to stop get a few shots of his new bike. It’s a 1250 Suzuki Bandit for any bike buffs out there, a special edition I’m also informed. We pretty much lit the bike with 2 speedlights on full tilt and I also ... Read More
I was on a shoot in Leeds last week that called for some architectural shots so I headed for the townhall with a view of doing something with the columns. I wanted to concentrate on the transition of light to shadow on the circular pillars and the shadows they were casting, as I had a ... Read More
I’ve recently bought a couple more pocket wizards that allow me to use more lights off camera, this was from a few quick shots we got in the garden. It was a two light setup with an umbrella to camera right and a bare light behind the subject to camera left providing a little separation ... Read More
I had a pre wedding meeting yesterday with a couple we are covering in a few weeks and I thought I might use some off camera flash, I’ve been reading a lot of strobist, if you haven’t been it’s worth a look for techniques and inspiration. Anyway as the sun had pretty much dipped over ... Read More
I went to Chester Zoo at the weekend, I wasn’t expecting to get too much but I was quite surprised with some of the ones I came away with. I had to pump up the ISO on some of the shots and was thankful of the image stabilizer on my 70-200 lens. I’ve processed them ... Read More
We went to the Llangollen Balloon festival at the weekend, didn’t see a great deal of balloons as the weather was pretty poor but the stunt bikes were pretty amazing, the lads did a victory lap at the end and they all looked about 12! Anyway this is a little different from the stuff I ... Read More
I’m putting this one up because it’ll probably be the last shot I take with my sigma 50mm macro lense as I’m selling it, I’ll probably be tempted to buy another at some point but the proceeds will go towards it’s bigger (heavier) brother. Anyway this was just a quick shot of an echinacea plant ... Read More
Another one from my forthcoming war collection which I’m tinkering with as releasing as limited ed prints (bit pretentious I know). I’m going to do a total of 25 images with a run of 25 on each image. I’ve brought in a few props, in this one we can see the famous Sherman tank bearing ... Read More
What a truly gifted guy. Our photographs took our breath away. We chose him from the dozens of wedding photographers we googled because we were just overwhelmed by his artistic interpretation of weddings. These are not just run of the mill photos, somehow he captures peoples feelings and happiness through a lens.
I was overwhelmed with how well you managed to capture the day and even confess to shedding a tear or two…Simon even looked like he had a lump in his throat! Thanks to both you and Carol for creating the perfect memory of our perfect day
Just wanted to say a big thank you for our fantastic photo’s. We couldn't have wished for anything more…you were great on the day, very helpful and not in your face like some wedding photographers can be! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends & family.
Just wanted to say again how delighted we were with your work. A number of guests commented on how friendly and efficient and discreet you were. Many thanks for being our wedding photographers
So many people have said such great things about our wedding photographs and we think they are just awesome, thanks again for being omni-present!
You secured us some breath-taking wedding photos. You captured every emotion on the day - not just of us but of our guests too, and we have many a frame-worthy shot to reminisce over for years to come.
We have to say a massive thank you to both of you for doing an absolutely amazing job as our wedding photographers. We both felt like we were superstars for the day, mainly due to the photos looking a million dollars, we just couldn't have got any better.
The photos are stunning - we were completely taken back when we saw the slideshow on our honeymoon - it brings back so many brilliant memories. Even now we keep looking at them and we can't stop smiling! We were so pleased you were our wedding photographers!
We got the DVD and CD on Saturday and the photo’s are perfect, absolutely everything we hoped they would be a more. Helen cried when we watched the DVD for the first time! You really should be charging double or more for your wedding photography!
The whole day went so quickly and despite being with us for majority of it, we never noticed they were there snapping away and when we did the couple shots, as our pictures will show, we never stopped laughing.
One word ... perfect. We went and showed my parents and I kept an eye on my Dad and i'm sure he was about to cry!
Pete, we received the dvd’s of the wedding photos this morning, I had to wait ALL day for Andy to get home from work so we could look at them together. Well.........I cried and cried when I saw them, they took my breath away, what a fantastic job you have done. We are so, so pleased with all of the pictures and how you have edited some of them is just brilliant. You are a total, total star!! Thank you so much again for all that you have done.
Pete, you are a Super-star! Our wedding photos are amazing and we couldn't have wished for better.
