Breadsall Priory wedding photography

 

Breadsall Priory is one of Derbyshire’s most established wedding venues, with huge gardens and grounds offering plenty of wedding photography options.

 

Helen and Anthony were married in church before heading to the hotel with their guests after the wedding ceremony. Helen chose pretty pink colours for her flowers and bridesmaids, which look really summery and fresh in their pictures.

 

Many of the couples we talk to are apprehensive about having their pictures taken on their wedding day, and are worried about feeling self-conscious. The Studio’s wedding photographers have many years’ experience in putting people at ease and making them feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. A relaxed photographer means a relaxed bride and groom, able to soak up every precious moment of their wedding day, without worrying about being photographed.

 

Our wedding photographers are skilled at melting into the background when required, offering subtle direction from time to time, and then stepping up to manage a large group situation in a friendly and efficient manner.

 

For more information about our wedding photography rates and service, take a look at the rest of our site. You can see more weddings at venues such as Shottle Hall, Derbyshire; Chatsworth, DerbyshireBelvoir Castle, Leicestershire; Fawsley Hall, Northamptonshire; and Masa, Derby, on these news pages.

wedding photography east midlands

 

Emma and Darren were married in 2012 and chose the gorgeous Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire as their wedding venue.

 

The hit-and-miss British weather did not phase the couple and they enjoyed a wonderful, relaxed wedding day with family and friends in the tranquil surroundings of the hotel – and the bouncy castle on the lawn was enjoyed by young and old alike!

 

We loved the idea of having an enormous gourmet barbeque, instead of a formal wedding breakfast,  to make the most of the gardens. Fawsley Hall is a really versatile venue and our photographers have also provided corporate and PR photography there.

WINGING IT

derby city centre wedding photography

 

WOW! Emily and Frank’s wedding in Derby city centre was certainly one to remember. It wasn’t just the bride who had a shock when an owl swooped in to deliver the rings during their wedding ceremony at Masa!

 

The owl’s starring role was a very well-kept secret and one that we haven’t seen at a wedding before! Emily and Frank chose the restaurant in a converted chapel as their Derby wedding venue and booked The Studio as their wedding photographers. There were plenty of smiles to go around and the day was filled with family, friends and laughter.

 

The Studio’s system of charging by the hour for wedding photography was great for this couple as they could tailor their wedding photography package to suit their needs perfectly. Our rates are currently £120 per hour, which includes VAT and a CD of all the high-resolution edited images from the day.

 

Ideally, if you are planning a surprise at your wedding, such as doves or a pop-up band or choir, you should have a quiet word with your wedding photographer, so that they are aware and ready. However, the great thing about professional and experienced wedding photographers is that they are always ready for anything, whether it is a wink, a cheeky grin or a full jazz band in the back row.

 

The Studio’s wedding photographers have been lucky enough to photograph some amazing weddings at fabulous venues in the East Midlands, so if you’re getting married, have a browse through our wedding photography galleries and blog posts featuring Shottle Hall, Chatsworth and Belvoir Castle, amongst others.

SUN & SMILES

derbyshire wedding photographers

 

With all the snow and ice around at this time of year, I needed a little reminder of summer and sunshine and warmth. So I had a look through all our weddings from last year and came across the beautiful wedding of Jessica and Adam at Shottle Hall, a fabulous Derbyshire wedding venue in the heart of the countryside.

 

The couple didn’t want to spend loads of time setting up group photographs, so we kept those to a bare minimum allowing them (and their wedding photographer!) to soak up the glorious Derbyshire summer sunshine.

 

We love Shottle Hall as a wedding venue, as there is plenty of space to roam around for wedding photography, the countryside is literally a step away.

 

Jessica & Adam’s wedding was so pretty and certainly one of the smiliest weddings ever!

 

If you’re planning a wedding at Shottle Hall, or at another venue, get in touch to discuss our wedding photography hourly rates or take a look at our website for more wedding inspiration in Derbyshire and beyond.

Henri-Cartier Bresson photography blog

 

 

The phrase ‘the decisive moment’ is talked about a lot in photography. It’s that split second when the photographer presses the button to release the camera’s shutter and freeze in time a fraction of a second. It was a term first used by the famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, who is known as the father of modern photojournalism.

 

Blink and you’ve missed it – in fact, photographers will always tell you: “If you see it, you’ve missed it.” This is because professional cameras show you through the viewfinder exactly what the lens is ‘seeing’, so as the shutter is released and the mirror flips up, the photographer sees blackness as the image is captured.

 

But what makes one moment more ‘decisive’ than the next? It’s that undefinable thing which makes a great picture: a twinkle of the eye or the split second before a jumping child’s feet hit the ground. Timing is the key and it is something which professional photographers practise every single day of their career, whether they are photographing fast-moving sport or toddlers in a portrait studio.

 

Cartier-Bresson was one of the very first photographers to embrace the concept of a photograph being able to “fix eternity in an instant”. A concept which, in today’s world of moving images, is still as beautiful as it was in the 1930s. A photograph can reveal so much about the subject’s personality, and it is there to be studied and treasured, whether it is on a wall, in an album, on a computer screen or on a mobile phone.

 

In 1952, Cartier-Bresson published a book called The Decisive Moment containing more than 100 of his photographs. He said: “To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organisation of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

 

Capturing a moment in time with a picture applies to everyone taking photographs, not just professionals. However, professional photographers are different, in that they have a natural, in-built ability to press the shutter instinctively, along with many years of practice. Just as most people can paint a wall, but not everyone can paint a portrait. As Cartier-Bresson said in 1957, “There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera.

 

“That is the moment the photographer is creative,” he said. “Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”
