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...

Christina & Chris’ Engagement Shoot at The National Railway Museum

We’ve got another Engagement Shoot for you and it takes place at a rather cool venue we’ve shot at a few times now – The National Railway Museum in York. This time around it’s the turn of Christina & Chris, fellow (self-confessed) sci-fi nerds and all around good people. Although the couple hadn’t booked the venue for their wedding it was still dear to them, as it’s where Chris popped the big question!

Below are some of our favourites…

Katie & Jamie’s Engagement Shoot at Fairfield Manor Hotel

While we’re on a role with this here blog, I am pleased to bring you the Engagement Shoot of Katie & Jamie. The couple are getting married at the beginning of the new year at Fairfield Manor Hotel, York, so we were happy to meet them there to have a wander around the place taking photos. One thing was clear from the outset; these guys don’t take life too seriously!

Below are some of the highlights of the day…

November 24, 2014 - 9:21 pm Katie Robinson - I love this, I get face - ache from smiling every time I see these photos! Everyone just keeps saying "they're so you." So impressed with them all, as well as all our family and friends. Exceptionally glad to have found you guys, looking forward for you to share and capture our big day with us! Katie & Jamie.

Jules & Valia’s Engagement Shoot at Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury

It’s time for another Engagement Shoot and here we have the lovely Jules & Valia. We first met Valia when we photographed her twin sister’s wedding back in 2011, so we were thrilled when Valia got in touch to invite us back again. The couple had chosen a wedding venue that wasn’t available for the Engagement Shoot, so we decided to have a wander around the place where they shared their first kiss – Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury.

Here’s a few faves from the session…

Sophie & Tom’s Engagement Shoot at The Parsonage

Here we are again with another wedding-related post – this time the Engagement Shoot of Sophie & Tom, which took place at their chosen wedding venue of The Parsonage Hotel in Escrick near York. We sat down with a cuppa to go through their final details for the wedding, before heading out into the grounds to get some relaxed portraits.

Here’s a small selection of what we came away with…

Carly & Chris’ Rise Hall Wedding

In the first of a barrage of blog updates we have here the wonderful wedding of Carly and Chris, which took place back in August at the rather splendid Rise Hall. We’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding here for a while (although we’d already taken part in a supplier-arranged shoot) and were thrilled when Carly and Chris chose us as their photographers.

Carly was lucky enough to be getting ready at Rise Hall from the get-go, so I arrived to a pretty relaxed gaggle of women getting on with their preparations…
