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!)


Hints and Tips…

Here are a couple of questions that most people would not think to ask before their wedding but could be important. I’ve not even seen these on those dreaded ‘lists of things to ask your wedding suppliers’…


1. If you are very passionate about your photography ask your chosen venues (before you book) whether the Registrar will let the photographer photograph the ceremony.


Some Registrars do not allow photography during the ceremony. Although this is rare, we have had it happen a couple of times and the venue has not warned the couple. We find out at the pre-wedding shoot, tell the couple and they are really upset and ask us to sneak some in. Unfortunately, this isn’t the best situation to be in for the photographer as we don’t like making enemies of Registrars! Better to check straight away and then you are either prepared, or can choose a venue elsewhere where the Registrars are a tad more lenient. However, remember that Registrars cover a large area so you may not get away from it but at least you are aware and not shocked. This also applies to Vicars at churches but you don’t have much choice if that’s the only church you can be married at!


2. If you are passionate about your music check with your venue whether they have a sound limiter. We know this from personal experience as, for our wedding, we chose an amazing Jazz Band but didn’t know that our venue had a sound limiter. So when it came time for the singer to belt it out she had to tone it down. Sad.


This only tends to apply if your venue is in a residential area but make sure you check.


That’s all for now but, if I can think of any other hint and tips, I’ll let you know.
