I’m always going to remember 2018 as the year my little Yorkshire wedding photography business really started to spread it’s wings. I am truly grateful for all of the incredible couples and other wedding suppliers that I’ve gotten to work with and learn from this year. I’m going to keep this review short but sweet, so here goes!
Engagement or pre-wedding photos are the perfect way to start celebrating – long before the big day! Not only is it an amazing gift to give yourselves, but it’s good practice for your wedding portraits! And of course you’ll need some modern, romantic and creative shots to use for wedding invites and to share on social media with all your friends and family. Plus it’s the best way to commemorate this exciting part of your lives!
Time has flown since Dani & Ben braved the midday sun in the middle of a heatwave, to capture some wedding magic in the glorious Peak District. As well as shooting at an incredible industrial city-centre venue, I took this pair to one of my favourite spots in the Peak District – Stanage Edge. For wild at heart & adventurous couples, this scenic spot has picture perfect panoramic views. It is a perfect location for wedding portraits, an engagement photoshoot, or a stunning elopement.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since my good friends Rachael & Charles tied the knot! It was a long but incredibly fun day, shared between our brilliant group of friends from uni. For May the 6th, I want to wish you a very happy 1st anniversary! As this was the first wedding that I solo shot, it also happens to be my 1st anniversary as a wedding photographer! I wanted to celebrate the occasion by re-editing a few of my favourite photos from their day!
As I already take a lot of detail photos at weddings – flowers, rings, cakes – it’s been a very natural progression for Stewart Barker Photography to branch out into commercial photography. I will primarily be working closely with other York and Yorkshire based small and independent wedding suppliers. But I’ll also be providing product, property and event photography, plus headshots, to businesses of all sizes and industries. I recently worked with local Yorkshire wedding cake supplier Rebel Cakes, to give her some contemporary and colourful images to help reinforce her brand identity!

Music is a hugely important part of my life. The songs I love are a part of my everyday routine, they are the narrative to the best and worst of times. My taste in music is a big part of my identity, so it’s understandable that music goes hand in hand with my photography. Some days I can spend hours on my daily commute, working through admin and editing photos, so I can get through a lot of music sometimes!
A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Sarah & Tom’s incredible wedding! Being all the way down in Ilfracombe, Devon, it was the furthest that Stewart Barker Photography has traveled so far for a wedding. I love visiting new places and meeting new people, and with the couple, their family and their friends all being so lovely, it was a perfect day!
Planning a romantic gift for Valentine’s Day? Flowers and chocolates are so last year. The perfect Valentine’s Day gift is a couple’s photoshoot! As an increasingly digital society, lots of us have pictures with our significant others on our phones and tablets. But how many of you are guilty of not having any of these photos printed out in your home?
