The Importance of Wedding Photography

One thing for sure is that your wedding day will be amazing and seem to go so fast. Once the decorations have come down and the cake has been cut, it is your photographs that will remain. As the days, weeks, months and years go by everything around us will change, but it is your photographs that will be timeless. They will be something for you to look back on and relive each and every one of those frozen moments, time and time again. Make the right choice in who you give this responsibility to, choose South Yorkshire wedding photographer Ricky Carrington

Wedding Photography Locations

As well as being a Barnsley wedding photographer, I cover weddings throughout South Yorkshire and beyond. My wedding photography packages include any destination within a 90 minute journey of Barnsley.

Style of Wedding Photography

I have described my style of wedding photography as a combination of reportage storytelling and timeless portraiture. There are of course many different wedding photography styles that are claimed by photographers, but what do they all mean?

By reportage, I mean that for the most part I will document your day as unobtrusively as I can, capturing the events and details as they happen in the most complimentary way. To then achieve those timeless portraits, this is where I have influence on the situation and give gentle direction to make sure we have the best light, the right angle and a fitting backdrop to make your wedding photographs truly beautiful.

Be Confident in Your Choice of Wedding Photographer

As one of the very few wedding photographers in Barnsley and South Yorkshire to hold a qualified status with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, you can be confident in choosing me for your wedding. You can of course take a look for yourself in my Wedding Photography Portfolio to see some of my favourite images, and also check out some of the latest weddings I have photographed on my Blog
