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!)


Charlotte & Craig – Engagement Shoot

Hello there, it’s Kelly again. At the weekend we had a couple of Pre-Wedding shoots to do and this one was with the lovely Charlotte and Craig who are getting married in York.

We met them at the location of their Reception which is the magnificent Royal York Hotel . Which, if you ever get the chance to have a peek, has the grandest men’s toilets that I’ve ever seen! (By the way, I didn’t go in – Pete took a photo.)

We started off doing the normal ‘business’ chat where we discussed all the final details of the day and then moved out into the blazing sunshine to take a stroll around the gardens. As stated in a previous blog we like to have this ‘trial run’ so that everything runs much more smoothly on the day. It also gets the couples used to my lingo and what I mean by the back-arm hug and our definition of smooch! 🙂 And here are the happy couple themselves…



As you can see Charlotte and Craig relaxed into it all very quickly.



The gardens were in full bloom and it was all very romantic. Talking about romance here’s Charlotte telling us how Craig proposed…

“Craig had spotted a ring in Bakewell so he took me there but then sent me off to buy cakes as a distraction… He then proposed to me the next day while we were at Lyme Park.” There seems to be a running theme of confectionery with our couple’s proposal stories at the moment. You know you’ve got a good man when he knows to distract you with cake!



I love this portrait.



We then took a quick stroll up onto the city walls to get a couple of shots which actually proved quite difficult as there were loads of people and very small walkways!



I’m not going to say much about this one other than that Charlotte is very nervous!



Anyway, we had a great day with Charlotte and Craig with a lot of laughter involved. We can’t wait for the wedding which promises to be a photographers dream. See you there guys!
