Why would you hire a North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer?

So choosing your wedding photographer is so important.
As wedding photographer, we carefully tell the story of your wedding day and capture all the memorable moments so that 10, 20, 50 years down the road you should be able to look back on the amazing memories and feel the same level of love and joy you felt on your wedding day. This is my job which I love and so I can capture your wedding day allowing you to treasure the memories for a lifetime.
How to Choose the Right Yorkshire wedding Photographer
So how do you choose the right North Yorkshire wedding photographer? It all starts with their portfolio. A photographer’s portfolio highlights professional images they’ve taken in the past that they’re proud of. You should be able to look through a portfolio to see whether you like the style of images and how good the photographer is.
If their portfolio doesn’t have a lot of the wedding photographs you like, then perhaps they’re not the right fit for you. Taking photos of a wedding or event can’t be compared to any other style of photography. To choose the right option, you need to ensure they are specifically a wedding photographer. You are still here so you must love my photography, so let’s chat about your wedding.
Additionally, try to find someone that has passion and cares. At Abraham Photography, I love wedding and all the joy and emotion that they bring. It is an absolute delight to photograph a couple’s wedding day and I love to do it in a way that helps you look back on your wedding and reminisce. I love weddings and I love photography, so this career was a perfect choice for me. As a passionate photographer I know what to look for, how to capture the right moments, and how to have ensure you are relaxed and enjoy your wedding day.
Make sure your photographer has the right equipment. If they show up with a single camera and lens, then they probably aren’t ready for a full day’s worth of wedding photography. You would be surprised to learn how many different cameras, lenses, and tools I have in my bag at any given time. I’m a bit of a gadget guy and that allows me capture some exciting and creative photos.
You want to find someone you connect with as a couple. You don’t want an emotionless annoying photographer that puts a damper on your whole event. This might not seem like a big deal, but it’s not something you want to deal with on your wedding day.
The bottom line is you need to pick someone who’s fun to be around but also incredible behind a camera. That’s what you get when you go with me. I’m here to enhance your special day and capture every moment. Find out some reasons why you should choose me.

If you didn’t know, photographers use different styles for the photos they take. For my wedding photographs, I ensure that my style is consistent. My photography is contemporary natural and creative. This helps me to tell the full story of your wedding day without getting in the way. I am creative and love to try new things and capture those WOW moments with my special flash techniques that are used for my twilight photography. All this means that every laugh, smile, tear, “I love you”, and dance move will be eternalised with the photos I take.
I absolutely love black and white photos and feel that they can give a great boost to your wedding photography gallery. You can expect plenty of black and white photos in the final gallery that you receive.

How Long Before I Get My Photos?
I know that you’re going to be really eager to get your photos back. Not to worry, I expedite the process to get the photos to you. It takes a little bit of time to sort through the photos and get rid of pictures where people are blinking that you don’t want to see. Additionally, I fully edit each picture to ensure my style remains consistent.
