The Wedding of Sam & Luke

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Sam & Luke Garner in Hambleton. Bride preps started around 10am on a stunning, warm (hot!) March day! The weather was simply stunning from morning to night and we couldn’t have wished for a better day!

With the venues (church & reception) only a short walk from the house, I managed to nip off for half an hour to shoot the boys having a ‘swift half’ @ the Owl Hotel whilst my wife second shot the remaining preps & hair/make-up etc….

It was then just a very short ride in a brand new 17 plate Fendt tractor to Hambleton church across the road. A beautiful little church surrounded by lovely gardens & flowers. It was attended by around 60 or so guests who then made the tiny journey to the Owl Hotel, where we enjoyed the large private garden area to the rear of the hotel. In the gardens we took advantage of the spring backdrops to do the ‘formals’ and the group shot which involved me climbing on the roof of the extension to get an ariel view!

After shooting the speeches just before the wedding breakfast, we retired for an hour and the came back in the main function room to capture the night guests & party in full swing as well as capturing the fully choreographed dance routine! All in all, it was a very enjoyable (tiring!) day but the images (as usual! LOL!) came out stunning! LK

Monk Fryston Hall Wedding

So, just before Christmas I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Sarah & Chris @ Monk Fryston Hall. Although it was a cold day, it was bright and stayed dry throughout the afternoon.

Starting mid-afternoon in the Bridal Suite (over looking the beautiful gardens & fountains) I took some prep shots of the Bridesmaids & Sarah getting ready & drinking posh wines! The suite had a lovely Christmas tree on the window sill which made for some lovely/interesting backgrounds. I then moved downstairs to capture the day guests arriving and to take pictures of the children in their respective outfits (whilst still pristine!)

A stunning, large Christmas tree was situated in the lobby area next to the grand piano, were I got some great ‘formals’. The Ceremony Room, then became the Wedding Breakfast Room, then the Evening Reception. With Sarah & Chris getting married late afternoon, unfortunately it was pitch black outside so we never got chance to take advantage of the beautifully manicured gardens but hey ho – you can’t win them all!

A fantastic couple who trusted me implicitly and I was very privileged to be part of their big day. Thanks guys!

Kirby Wharfe & Kings Croft Wedding

Lee Kershaw Photography had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Mr & Mrs Sutton at Kirby Wharfe Church then onto the reception at Kings Croft Hotel in Pontefract – both ‘new’ venues I’ve never shot at before!

Starting early at the Hair Salon in Sherburn, where Gemma (the Bride) is the Senior Stylist, we took some Prep shots of Hair & Makeup. It was strange to see the Bride ‘working’ on her special day doing all the girls hair, but it made for some great shots!

We then moved onto Gemma’s parents house, in Ulleskelf, where we did the flowers & detailed shots as well the ‘dressing room’ getting strapped in pics! At this point I was also invited to climb into a cage attached to a Manitou tractor and take some ariel shots of the Bride & Father of the Bride in the garden.

From there it was a short drive from Ulleskelf to Kirby Wharfe Church. A beautiful small church with amazing grounds. The church was packed out & the weather started to behave itself too. After a great shoot inside the church, the Manitou was there once again for a group shot of all the day guests stood outside the impressive small church.

After Kirby Wharfe, it was a trip over to West Yorkshire were the reception was held at Kings Croft Hotel in Pontefract. This venue has changed massively since I last visited it as a wedding guest over 10 years ago! The grounds now had a dedicated outdoor wedding area and a lake & fountain feature – again making for some stunning couple shots. The skies were as per the images – no photoshop – that’s just how they formed!

All in all, another fantastic wedding shoot from start to finish. Gemma & Stephen now have the impossible task of picking just 1/3 of the entire gallery to make their wedding album! Good luck with that one guys!

Thanks again to all the Sutton’s & Watson’s for making me feel so welcome throughout the whole day!

I Thank You!

Rachel & Glen’s Summer Wedding

Yesterday, Lee Kershaw Photography, went out to see Rachel & Glen who’ve booked us for their wedding in Aug’ 2016. They’re getting married at St Mary’s Church in Tadcaster then back to Newton Kyme for their reception/afternoon/night do!

Whilst we chatted, walking around the extensive gardens, I went to grab my baby camera & macro lens in the car (Nikon D3100 & Tamron SP90) and took some relaxed / natural shots and couldn’t believe the results when I had a quick look in Lightroom….. to say it was quite basic equipment compared to my Full Frame Bodies & Pro Lenses it just goes to prove (as Ansel Adams quoted) ”a good photograph is knowing where to stand”

Capturing that moment – not staged or forced – is an art in itself. I forwarded about 11 Pix of the happy couple & dogs and they loved them as much as I did!

Needless to say, we’re all looking forward to the big day now & hopefully the weather will be kind to us as it was the day these ‘snaps’ were snapped!

Thanks again for your continued support.

Wedding for Aimee & David @ Crayke Church

Last weekend Lee Kershaw Wedding Photography had the pleasure of shooting Mr & Mrs Bullocks very special day. The weather forecast was horrendous, according to every app under the sun (excuse the pun!). Although it did rain quite a lot, the sun still managed to sneak out at just the right times to enable us to capture some stunning shots with stunning backdrops & skies.

The day started out with the prep shots @ Coxwold Tea Rooms, nr Easingwold. A beautiful little place with B&B facilities upstairs which made for some beautiful shots. We then moved onto St Cuthberts Church in Crayke. Situated on top of the hill in Crayke with a breathtaking view over looking Easingwold & out to York! We then stopped off at a lake on the way back to the Tea Rooms then a ‘Pug’ shoot (7 of them!) then onto Coxwold Village Hall for the evening / night do.

We spent 3 days solid editing to finish the online gallery in quick time as we’ve got quite a few back to back weddings coming up so we didn’t want to get back logged.

I can honestly say it was one of the nicest & quirkiest weddings we’ve ever shot. The couple were stunning, the venues were stunning, the locations were stunning which all add up to 1 stunning album.

I’ve attached a few of my personal favourites but, to be honest, I haven’t room for the 303 masters we’ve delivered!

Thanks again for reading……..

Lucy & Chris – The Wedding Album

Lucy & Chris – The Wedding Album 

After much deliberating (arguing!) Lucy & Chris finally managed to whittle down the images they wanted to appear in their wedding album book.

We had a cracking day from start to finish and the weather was simply stunning which made it even better! Typically we look at getting approx 90 – 140 images per book which gives enough scope to include images from preps to first dance & beyond. The venue was at Grange Park Golf Club in Scunthorpe and the setting was beautiful.

Here’s a sneak preview of the front cover…. Cream Fine Fabric with B&W Mounted Insert…..

Lee Kershaw – Update for Blog!

Hello Everyone! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Christmas and are looking forward to 2016.

Firstly, I apologise for the lack of content & updates for my website.

I’ve had a very busy & demanding time over the past few months and things are starting to ‘get back to normal’. Got lots of weddings booked in already for next year so it’s going to be another busy one!

I’m doing a couple of wedding fairs again too next year & hopefully will be exhibiting at a couple of new venues (fingers crossed!) TBC!

You’ll find some brand new pictures in the gallery from the latest couple of weddings I’ve done recently, so hopefully give you an idea on my ‘photo-journalistic’ style/approach to wedding photography.

There are still dates available for 2016 so why not get in contact via my Web Form, drop me an email or give me a ring!

Thanks again everyone and all the very best for 2016!

Wedding Photography for Chris & Lucy Atkin

At Lee Kershaw Photography we like to make sure the client is happy throughout the process when booking a wedding photographer. This means from the first call/home visit, we understand exactly what they want from their shoot from preps to first dance & beyond.

Having shot the wedding of Chris & Lucy Atkin, (who opted for the Gold Package) a few weeks ago, we got to task on editing the online gallery & sorting out the prints…. whilst Chris & Lucy viewed their online gallery within a day they left some really kind words that I thought I’d add to my blog! (as well as the testimonial scrolling page as well!)

First of all can I say a big thank you to Sally and yourself for doing a fabulous job. We had no end of positive comments from friends and family about yourself on how good you was.
We have looked at the photographs and are very impressed and they look really well.
Some of the shots you have achieved are amazing.
How many photographs do we need to choose for the album?
This is going to be a difficult job guaranteed ha ha!
Once again Lee thank you so much.
I love it when a plan comes together! Cheers Chris & Lucy for that!
So, to all you new Brides & Grooms, pop up to Burn Hall on the 18 Oct and come say Hello! We don’t bite, are very friendly & not pushy one bit!
Back to printing more pictures & canvas’s – over & out!

Family Portrait Shoot This Saturday

I’m hoping the weather is better in the morning than this mornings fog/mist fiasco! I’ve got an outdoor family portrait shoot and not sure the mist effect is what they’re after!

I’ve done quite a few of these this year and (so far) the weather gods have been very kind! (fingers crossed!)

The setup will consist of my Full Frame Nikon D610, Tamron 24-70, and a couple of triggered strobes. I love shooting in RAW format too, big files for editing but so much more control over the final mastered image.

Lee Kershaw Photography has recently installed a Dual LED monitors setup to the editing suite and used the Pantone Huey Pro to calibrate the colours etc…. you can’t believe the difference in the before/after! A simple and relatively cheap thing to do in the studio but probably one of the most important!

If you need to discuss portraiture or wedding photographer feel free to call or text!

Thanks Again All!

Congratulations To The New Mr & Mrs Massey!

Last Saturday, as mentioned, Lee Kershaw Photography had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Kayleigh & Rob Massey at Burn Hall.

Despite shocking weather throughout the morning, by the time the ceremony was over (and everyone had held/stroked the beautiful Barn Owl who delivered the rings!) the weather broke out beautiful just in time for the outside shoot! The gardens up at Burn Hall are simply stunning and make for some fantastic pictures. I’m just on with the edits as I type so I’ll be letting all the guests know when the online secure gallery is ready for viewing!

The new D610 & Tamron 24-70 performed exceptionally too…. and, if I’m honest, I can tell a subtle difference between DX & FX but still happy to stick my Sigma 50-150 on my D7000!

So, this weekend I’ve got the wedding of Sarah & Chris at the lovely Grange Park Golf Club nr Scunthorpe. Fingers are crossed again for the dry weather!

Watch out for the new images to hit the gallery over the next week or so & I’ll update my blog accordingly……..

Don’t forget our FREE – NO OBLIGATION home visit to discuss your wedding photography – what have you got to lose???

Kayleigh & Robs Wedding Shoot Tomorrow……

Wishing Kayleigh & Rob good luck tomorrow for their big day! It’s going to be a long one for Lee Kershaw Photography as the preps start at 8.30 in the morning and first dance approx 8.15!

The new setup weighs a ton too so the harnesses will come in very handy! No need to go to the gym aft using 2 x DSLR’s for 12 hours! Hopefully the weather will hold out as there as some lovely outdoor location shots up at Burn Hall.

Keep your eyes peeled for yet more new images appearing on Lee Kershaw’s Photography Gallery

Cheers All, & Thanks Again for reading……………………………

New Camera Equipment Arrived!

So, after months & months of research Lee Kershaw Photography has finally taken the plunge and gone for the Nikon D610 FX & Tamron 24-70 f2.8 – first impressions are brilliant!

These numbers probably mean nothing to most people reading this but believe me, it’s taken along time for me to ‘justify’ the ‘upgrade’…… I suppose only time will tell if I can see a difference between FX & DX but I look forward to using my new setup next weekend for the wedding of Kayleigh & Rob in York & then Sarah & Chris the following week in Scunthorpe!

So, I now own 3 camera body’s & 6 lenses – but you can never have enough backups in this game! LOL!

Keep your eyes peeled in the gallery and see if you can see which is DX & FX ! Answers on a postcard………

Thanks for reading my blog……

Wedding Photography for Mr & Mrs Spain!

Lee Kershaw Photography had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Sarah & Chris last weekend at the Monkbar Hotel in York. The weather was most kind throughout the day and this resulted in some beautiful shots. (Gallery will be updated very soon)

Just on with the edits as I type and (even though they both said they hated their pictures taking!) they look amazing on these screens! I know they’ll say I’ve ‘photoshopped’ them but I really haven’t! LOL!

Anyway, I’ll be updating my website within the next month or so as I’ve got 5 weddings to shoot over the next 5 weeks so plenty of new images to be uploaded as well as the testimonials.

More Work For Corporate HeadShots……

Last week Lee Kershaw Photography had the pleasure of doing some more candid headshots for TDP in Halifax. As well as having the standard issue pure white, clean background shots my new brief was to snap the chaps/chapesses (?) whilst at their desks working for a candid friendly / smiley / approachable image style for their business!

Had some fantastic backdrops as they reside in the Dean Clough Mills Complex…. Stunning timber & brick everywhere!

The next few months are very busy with weddings most weekends & editing mid-week so maybe a bit quiet on the Blog front but I’ll revamp my wedding gallery when I get a spare 30 seconds…. (probably around mid-Sept!)

Thanks again for looking

Wistow School Prospectus – North Yorkshire County Council

So, last month Lee Kershaw Photography was commissioned to take some new pictures for the Wistow Primary School Prospectus & Website. Having already taken pictures of their sports day last year I was ‘honoured’ they asked me to shoot their official school imagery too!  After mastering all the images I sent them off to their book design people and awaited the final product….

Last week they hand delivered me a copy of the prospectus, a hand drawn/written card by all the pupils and a bottle of red wine! The whole full colour brochure looks amazing & they/I couldn’t be happier! I look forward to being involved with some more upcoming events with them in the very near future!

Photoshoot @ Burn Hall Hotel, York

So, Lee Kershaw Photography has taken pictures of various animals in the past but last week I was asked to take pictures of a cat with a very rare ‘fur’ disorder. The vets & specialists are baffled by it’s changing colour & only a handful of cats in the world have the rare ‘chameleon’ type fur!!!

This week I’ve had the pleasure of shooting for the Best Western Hotel chain (Burn Hall Hotel, Huby) for their new website & brochure. Shot on the first Open Wedding Day for the newly refurbished rooms in the Minster Suites. The new layout is much better and the whole room looks brilliant!!!

Over & Out for now…..
