Our Wedding Photographer

Chris really isn’t into photography and gets irate with me whenever I stop to take a photo of something but one thing I was really adamant on for our wedding was a quality photographer. We have family and friends who are photographers who we could have asked, but we wanted them to enjoy the day and not feel like they were always needing to ‘get the shot’.

I had a very clear image from the off of the kind of wedding photos I wanted. Chris hates having his photo taken and every photo you’ll see of him over on Instagram literally makes him look like he hates life. I really didn’t want 1000 posed shots of him looking miserable and knew I wanted some really natural shots which showed our family and friends feeling comfortable and having fun. I know not everyone likes having their photo taken (I’m one of those people when I haven’t got control of the camera!) so I really wanted to limit down the number of ‘posed’ photos we had.

We chose Peter Hugo Photograpy for our wedding photos and I could not have been happier. I went to university with Petes girlfriend Ellie so I’ve seen his work via her facebook page for the last six years. When we got engaged there was only one person I wanted to take our photos as his photo style encompassed everything I wanted our photos to be – some posed photos but mainly just unposed photos of people enjoying themselves.

Pete was an absolute pleasure to work with from our first email to last. I am genuinely upset that the whole process is over because he has been such a little gem. Pete drove down from his home town of County Durham on the morning of the wedding and came to my mums house where myself and the bridesmaids were getting ready. He snapped away, never making us feel uncomfortable or on edge.

 Some of the photos he got of us all there before the wedding are some of my favourites. He then met us at the church where he captured some truly special moments, then we went off to the woods to take some photos of just me and Chris. We have very few photos together so I’m so pleased that they are everything I had hoped! I love how he has edited them and the greenery looks so good in contrast with Chris’ tweed suit and ginger beard.

All of our friends and family commented on how much of a nice lad Pete is, and I think that is so important – you don’t want someone who is going to make your friends and family feel on edge or like they are being watched; Pete managed to capture the very essence of our wedding and caught our family and friends just as we see them – relaxed and happy.

 Within one day of the wedding we had our first sneak peak photograph and it was perfect. I wore converse on our wedding and Pete captured those, our king (Malc the Dog) and Chris’ suit all in one. I think it is one of my favourite photos of the day (so much so that I used it for the Thank You Cards.. More about that coming up soon!) and just makes me smile whenever I see it.

We had a couple of other sneak peeks online and Pete kept me up to date throughout the whole process. Within 3 weeks of the wedding we had a beautiful presentation box sent through to us with a few prints inside it and a memory stick containing all our photos. I instantly welled up when I saw the photos. He had captured everything I could have hoped for. I don’t know how to put into words just how grateful I am to him for everything he did and all his hard work.

I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any kind of occasion. Pete travels all over for weddings and events and I can promise you’d be nothing short of stunned by his work. You can find Petes blog post on the wedding here and his website here. He is also on facebook here and Instagram here.
