Peter Boyd Photography Blog bio picture

Hello and welcome

I'm a photographer based in Yorkshire who specialises in wedding,
portrait and headshot photography. I also undertake commercial
commissions, including interior photography, theatre productions and
event coverage.

I am married to Kelly, my long suffering wife, and we live in Huddersfield with our cat, Simon.

I've always had a passion for photography, from watching my grandad
repair old cameras in his spare room to looking through the press
photography of my godfather.

I endeavour to create detailed, stunning and memorable images and my mantra is simple:- there's beauty in everything!

So, sit back with a cuppa and have a browse through my blog. Comments
are always welcome, so don't be shy (Although I will delete anything
that is abusive or makes fun of my hair!)

Enjoy...

Sam & Jonny’s Engagement Shoot at York Pavilion Hotel

On Sunday we joined Sam & Jonny at The Pavilion Hotel in York for their Engagement Shoot. We’ve a couple of weddings there this year and it’s certainly a deceptive venue – with a lot more going on inside than you can tell from the roadside. So, after a drink and a sit down in the lovely bar area (which featured a chap in the corner playing old jazz standards on the piano!) we got on with the shooting.

Below are a few of our favourites…

Helen & Dale’s Engagement Shoot at Whitley Hall, Sheffield

Another Engagement shoot for you today – this time around with Helen and Dale at Whitley Hall Hotel on the outskirts of Sheffield. Whitley Hall is a lovely 16th Century building with character aplenty. Aside from the sprawling ivy and lush gardens Whitley Hall also boasts it’s own peacocks, who are no strangers to the camera lens and, as you’ll see, are happy to pose for you!

We met Helen and Dale at one of the many wedding fairs we exhibit at each year and, after doing our best to impress, we were thrilled when they chose us to capture their big day. The session started with a quick family portrait before Helen’s sister promptly whisked the kids away so Hele and Dale could relax into the portrait process.

Here’s a few favourites from the day…

Carly & Chris’ Engagement Shoot at Rise Hall

On Saturday we joined Carly & Chris at Rise Hall for their Engagement Shoot. Luckily it was one of the few days without a wedding at the venue – we even had access to the inside, thanks to the wedding co-ordinator Helen. As Kelly and I have shot there before we already had a pretty good idea of where we wanted to go. So, with our backdrop ready we set about set about easing Carly and Chris into their supermodel roles!.

Here’s a few favourites from the day…

Jenn & Martin’s Engagement Shoot at Aldwark Manor

Time for the second of our two Engagement Shoots from Monday this week with Jenn & Martin. We were back to familiar territory this time, as we’ve shot at Aldwark Manor before (see here). As always, we went through the paperwork before heading out for photos in the (thankfully) glorious sunshine.

The following is a selection of our favourites from the day…

Cat & Matt’s Engagement Shoot at Lendal Tower, York

Here we have the first of two Engagement Shoots from Monday this week – Cat & Matt. This shoot was a slight change from the norm, as we weren’t shooting at the couples wedding venue (which is York Pavilion Hotel). Instead we were exploring the rather splendid Lendal Tower, which had been booked by Cat for her hen do a couple of days before.

What a great place for photos! We started off on the spacious roof terrace, before heading back through a few rooms and then finally out into the garden (I know, a garden in the centre of York!)

Anyway, below is just a handful of our favourites for your enjoyment…
