Steve Bootle - Wedding photographer Leeds
A great wedding photographer will capture the essence of your wedding day. Each precious individual moment in time will be frozen in time forever so that you can re-live the joy (and hopefully not the nerves) of this fantastic day that you spend together as a couple, with friends, with family, with each other.
There's nothing more satisfying to me than providing a collection of photographs that can make someone laugh, cry and simply provide memories of loved ones and precious moments for years to come.
My name is Steve Bootle, and I specialise in Wedding photography in Leeds and throughout Yorkshire. Countless couples have entrusted me to make a special record of their day; it's a task that I undertake with relish, and not a little trepidation.
Most couples would agree that a huge amount of time and effort goes into the lavish preparation for today's elaborate weddings. The task of the photographer is to make a record of the day that encapsulates the feel of the whole day in photographs; the unbridled joy of the happy couple, the nerves of the best man pre-speech and the pride of a mother and father watching their child move into the next phase of their life.
As you'll see from the examples scattered around my website, strong composition, creativity and technical ability are fundamental to my wedding photography. The ability to 'see the shot' and be confident enough in my instincts to capture imagery that other photographers would miss has resulted in some stunning wedding photography for my Leeds clients.
As weddings are organised and prepared for so much in advance, I very much take the 'photograph things as they happen' approach, rather than setting up scenes and attempting to direct a day that has been so meticulously planned already. This instinctive approach means that everyone is much more relaxed, which makes for beautiful wedding photographs of everything you've worked so hard to create.
Organisation is key to how I work, so I'll ensure that I get the most professionally out of the day by scouting your location, planning in advance and knowing the day's timings inside out. It helps a great deal to do this with my brides and grooms, as it gives us all a chance to meet and discuss how the day will develop before the big day itself.
Seeing as I'll be with you a lot on your wedding day, it's especially important for you to feel relaxed with me around. I like to think I'm pretty good company (and enough of my brides and grooms seem to think so too which is great!)
As a wedding photographer, photographing every element of your wedding in Leeds or Yorkshire, I'll endeavour to embrace all of your preparations, down to the last detail so that every last element of the decisions you make prior to your wedding day are recorded in beautiful photographs.
Please contact me well in advance of your wedding day. Most of my wedding photography work around Leeds comes to me by word of mouth from happy brides and grooms, so I do need to book things in as far in advance as possible to be able to accommodate everyone.
Whilst I'll do everything possible to be there for you on your wedding day, I'll guarantee that once I'm booked in for you on your day, you'll be well on your way to having a series of beautiful photographs as memories of your wedding.
