Becky and Duffy’s Lake District Pre Wedding Shoot

Engagement photo of couple looking towards Buttermere and Fleetwith Pike

For as long as i’ve been a wedding photographer, it’s been a bucket list goal of mine to shoot a Pre-Wedding/Engagement & a Wedding session in the Lake District. The Lakes is my home from home, my happy place, and where I go to get away from the world. When I had a wedding consultation with Becky & Duffy we got to talking about our mutual love for this beautiful corner of the country. And then I had a proper lightbulb moment, for an extra-special Lake District Pre-Wedding shoot! Being my favourite part of the UK, I’ve got many hidden gems that i’m very fond of. It was an absolute pleasure to share some of these places that are so important to me!

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!
