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...

Charlotte & Jonathan’s Engagement Shoot at Roundhay Park

Hello – it’s Kelly – I thought I’d give Pete a bit of a break and share today’s blog post with you. This one is with the very cool Charlotte and Jonathan. It’s not often we find a couple as geeky as us but we managed to with these guys. In fact – I’m pretty sure they booked us on the basis that we loved ‘Firefly’ and all things Joss Whedon (although I hope our photography skills helped a bit)!!

Anyway, Charlotte and Jonathan are getting married at Redworth Hall in May but, as it was a tad far away, they decided on Roundhay Park as the location of their Engagement Shoot. So, after we’d been through the details of the day and debated the plotlines of recent Marvel films, we took ourselves off for a stroll around the park. Enjoy…

I think Jonathan made it his ‘not so secret’ mission to make Charlotte laugh all the way through the shoot.

Jonathan decided to prove his skills as a ballerina – he can be quite graceful. Although I’m not sure Charlotte wanted to be a part of it.

We all loved this tree as soon as we saw it.

Just before this shot a flock of geese noisily flew overhead and we all started humming the Jurassic Park theme tune. As I said… geeks.

We really can’t wait for this wedding – I have a feeling it’s going to be suitably quirky. See you then guys…

(P.S. We’ve watched that episode of Game of Thrones now… Wow!)

 
 
 
 
 

April 21, 2014 - 6:46 pm Jonathan - WOW! Thanks so much Peter and Kelly, Charlotte and I absolutely adore these shots. Thank you so much for a fun evening, and we can't wait to see you on our big day! Jonathan & Charlotte.

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…

We had a great time with Helen and Dale and, by their own admission, they had a good time too! Keep your eye on the blog for some more Engagement shoots coming soon…

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…

Carly & Chris were a lot of fun to shoot and we reckon their wedding in August is going to be no different!
