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!
Alongside getting to travel to lots of amazing places around the UK and meet incredible people as a wedding photographer, one of the other perks of the job is meeting other lovely wedding suppliers. When I met up with Charlotte from Rebel Cakes to shoot some new images for her, I immediately knew I had met a wedding business kindred spirit! Her approach to running a business, her brand and her target audience really resonate with me.
I’m no stranger to cake, and i’ve been lucky enough to sample a lot of wedding cakes at different weddings and wedding supplier fairs. I have to say that Rebel Cakes is up there with the best I have tried! Not only do Charlotte’s cakes and macarons taste amazing, but she offers contemporary designs in what can often be a very traditional industry.
As well as snapping photos of two of her beautiful cakes, Charlotte also wanted so images to help promote her new macaron decorating classes. These are the perfect idea for a Hen Party if you love sweet treats and being a bit crafty!
For both her cake and macaron images, I worked closely with Charlotte on the shoot and during the editing process, to ensure her exact vision for the images was being met. Having images that truly reflect your brand is key, and we’re both really happy with how on-brand these photos are.
