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.

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

January 16th, 2013 by

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.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

Portrait photographers Derby

 

 

The Studio offers fresh, modern family portrait photography in Derby at really great prices.

 

We run a small photography studio in Mickleover, Derby, where we create gorgeous, timeless photography of babies, children, families, couples as well as pet photography and maternity pictures.

 

We know that being in front of the camera can be daunting for children and adults alike, so our first priority is to put people at ease. We have children ourselves, so we have a few tricks up our sleeve for settling in the little ones and helping the whole family to relax and be themselves to enable us to capture some amazing shots.

 

A family photoshoot at our Vicarage Road studio is just £20, and this price includes a 5×7 print of your choice, in either colour or black and white, which comes beautifully mounted ready to frame. After your sitting, we’ll make an appointment for you to come back to view your portraits on our big screen and choose your free print. There is no pressure to buy more, but if you do want extra prints, prices start at £20 for a mounted 5×7, framed prints start at £35 and canvas and solid block prints start at £95. If you spend £250 or more on prints, frames, canvas or block prints, a CD of images, with a copyright licence for personal use, is available to purchase. We do not supply unmounted prints or sizes smaller than 5×7.

 

We have a wide selection of frame profiles from which to choose, and all of our frames, from the smallest to the largest, are individually made by hand to bespoke sizes.

 

Gift vouchers are available in multiples of £10, which make the perfect present for any age, from teenagers to families.

 

We are normally at The Studio from 9.30am until 3pm Tuesday to Friday, but we do appointments outside of these hours, including Saturdays and Sundays. We also go out on location, so it’s always best to give us a quick call first if you are planning to pop in. We also provide a passport photo service, with pictures ready to collect in 3-4 days.

 

If we’re out when you call, or busy with clients, please leave us a message or send us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. If you’re looking for a family portrait photoshoot in Derby, take a look at our website for more examples of our work and get in touch to book.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

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!
