Beautiful wedding, newborn, baby & family photography across Leeds, York, Harrogate & beyond…
Natural & relaxed Yorkshire wedding photographer covering Leeds, York, Harrogate, Ilkley and more!
Welcome lovely people to my website! I’m Laura, a Yorkshire wedding photographer, baby photographer and family photographer. I live near Ilkley but cover Leeds, York, Harrogate, Sheffield and, well, just about anywhere! I have an adorably crazy 5 year old called Rose who is too clever for her own good, a mild floral addiction, and I’m mostly powered by tea and dairy free ice cream.
I spent a looooong time looking at my computer screen, staring off into space, and even going “old skool” with pen and paper, trying to find the best (and most concise) way to describe my style of photography. In a nutshell, I’m all about the love, man. I’m so lucky that my job allows me to step into the lives of so many people and families, if only for a short time. I love hearing their stories and helping them to tell a new one. Oh, and flowers. Gah but I love the flowers.
“That’s all very nice Laura, but what can we actually expect from you as our photographer?”
For weddings, it’s all about the story. I want to share the whole day with you; from the nervous excitement of the bridal preparations, through the wobbling voices and “I must not cry on camera” faces of the ceremony and speeches, to the crazy dance floor action (and let me tell you, I have seen some MOVES). I also love to capture all the little details and special touches that make your wedding, yours. The flowers, the dress, the cake, the stationary, the shoes, the flowers (like I said, it’s an addiction). And of course I want to spend some time with just the two of you, creating some beautiful portraits. Now I know that will make some of you nervous, but don’t worry, you will love this bit! I have photographed weddings all over Yorkshire and a few further afield, and I’m very honoured to even be recommended by some of my favourites, including The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey, Denton Hall, Carlton Towers, Goldsborough Hall, The Hawkhills York and The Sun Pavilion Harrogate.
For portrait shoots, whether it’s snuggling up at home with your newborn, chasing your toddler through the park, or skimming stones and climbing trees with your eldest, I want you to have as much fun as possible and barely ever notice I’m there. Again, it’s a story; of who you all were together at that moment, of what you loved doing together and the places you went. Don’t expect to sit still for long! And I rarely say “cheese”.*
*Disclaimer – I actually do sometimes say “cheese”. Partly because I find the “cheese” face hilarious, and also so I can make fun of it and capture the real laugh that follows!
So there you have it. Not as concise as I’d planned but hopefully that will give you an idea of what my photography is all about.
