Peter Boyd Photo 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...

Natalie & Marc’s York Engagement Shoot

So – once again we are a tad behind on the blog… sorry. What this means is that this Shoot that we are bringing you today is for a lovely couple who are no longer engaged… because they are now happily married! (Hope I didn’t scare you then. :) )”

Anyway, we still thought we’d show you the Engagement photos cause we had such a great time with Natalie and Marc. We’ll also be blogging their absolutely amazing wedding soon so keep a look out for that…

 

We started out as usual having our meeting about all the wedding details at Monkbar Hotel, York and then started the shoot in the lovely courtyard.

Before moving inside and finding some funky purple wallpaper!

We then decided to roam the streets of York like crazy people – at least that’s what it can sometimes feel like when everyone is watching! We always tell our couples that it’s much easier when you’re all togged up in wedding gear cause people then understand why you have paparazzi following you around and taking photos of you kissing and hugging. 😉

Although Natalie and Marc just laughed off the strange looks like pros!

We were told by Marc that they HAD to get a photo with the Bile Beans. Lucky really cause we had already spotted the sign and were going to tell them they just HAD to get a photo with it. Great minds an’ all…

So, even though they had to contend with funny looks and scary phantom cyclists, we think Natalie and Marc both aced this shoot. They were so much fun to work with and keep an eye out for their fantastic wedding coming to the blog soon.

 
 

Lizzy & Ewan’s Engagement Shoot at Hodsock Priory

Time for some images that celebrate the arrival of Spring and it just so happens we have here the Engagement Shoot of Lizzy & Ewan, shot at the beautiful Hodsock Priory. Lizzy & Ewan get married in May, but decided to have their pre-wedding shoot in February to take full advantage of one of Hodsocks main seasonal attractions – the snowdrops!

Here’s a few of our favourites from the session…

 

We started the shoot in the lovely gardens of the main house…

Tanya & Martin’s Wortley Hall Wedding

We’re back again with another wedding for you – this time we join the lovely Tanya and Martin for their big day at Wortley Hall. Snow had recently fallen and still remained around most of the grounds, making for a very picturesque winter morning. Tanya and her bridesmaids enjoyed their morning preparations in a suite in the main building, whilst Martin and the lads were in one of the cottages on the grounds.

The wedding was full of nice little touches – from Tanya’s wellies to the light-up letters they had in the evening. Here are a few highlights from the day…

Emma & David’s Rowley Manor Engagement Shoot

With their wedding only a few weeks away, I thought I’d share with you Emma and David’s Engagement shoot. These guys have chosen Rowley Manor as their venue and it is also where we met them for this session. It’s a lovely Georgian manor surrounded by fields on the outskirts of Hull. After a coffee and a catch-up it was off to the photoshoot – here’s a few favourites…

Tanya & Martin’s Wortley Hall Engagement Shoot

Here we have the lovely Tanya & Martin who we arranged to meet at their wedding venue, Wortley Hall, for their Engagement Shoot. The day was crisp (read: cold) and the ground was still dusted with remnants of snow from the days before. We soldiered on regardless and below are my favourites from the day…

Despite the cold January air, Tanya & Martin were great to work with – very accommodating of my ‘lean on this’ or ‘sit on that’ demands! Stay tuned for their wedding day highlights on the blog soon.
