Derby wedding photographers



If you’re planning a wedding, congratulations!


When you’re getting married, the ‘to-do’ list can sometimes seem overwhelming – finding the perfect wedding venue and choosing an amazing wedding dress are just the beginning. One big thing to tick off the list early in the planning stages is finding a wedding photographer that you feel comfortable with.


The Studio’s professional wedding photographers are based in Mickleover in Derby, but cover weddings in Derbyshire, the East Midlands and nationwide. We have two full-time photographers, but also call on the services of our small group of carefully selected, regular freelance professional photographers. All our photographers earn a living from photography, none is a keen amateur or part-time. You will always know who your wedding photographer will be and be able to meet them before your wedding day and see examples of their own work.


All of The Studio’s wedding photographers are fully trained and qualified as press photographers, which gives them the invaluable ability to adapt and cover an, at times, fast-moving and spontaneous situation – such as unexpected confetti-throwing! This experience means that we can really tell the story of your wedding day in pictures, covering every aspect in a documentary style.


Every wedding day is unique, and our photographers aim to reflect your own individual style in the images. When you book your wedding photography with us, we ask for a deposit of £120, which is one hour’s photography. You are more than welcome to get in touch as many times as you wish before the wedding day to talk through timings, planning and also pick our brains on fabulous Derbyshire wedding suppliers we have worked with previously.


Closer to the the big day, we will arrange an appointment with you to go through your final timings for the day and ask you to put together a list of essential group shots that you would like. This is when you pay your final balance.


On your wedding day itself, our photographers will be on time, dressed smartly and know how to get the best pictures without being a nuisance. We will melt into the background when necessary and step forward to organise groups in a polite and friendly manner, without barking orders, but still getting the official shots done quickly and efficiently.


Our wedding photography style is natural and relaxed, but also fun and tailored to you, so that your personality can really shine through in the images.


After your wedding, we will upload a preview of your pictures to our Facebook page followed by adding all of your individually edited pictures to a password-protected gallery on our website for you to share with your guests. You will also receive a disc containing your high-resolution images, with a copyright licence for personal use, so you can have them printed however you wish.


Couples tend to book their wedding photography quite early on in the wedding-planning process, so it’s always best to get in touch sooner rather than later – especially for popular weekends. However, there are sometimes a couple of late-availablility gaps in the diary as we are lucky enough to have more than one wedding photographer working for us. We are able to provide photography for weddings of all sizes, although we ask for a minimum booking of six hours for Saturdays from March to September.


You can find examples of our wedding photography in Derbyshire and beyond on our website galleries. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions and to check availability for your wedding date. And, above all, enjoy your special day!
