Warwickshire Wedding Photographer
I’m Dan Thomas, a professional Warwickshire Wedding Photographer.
I originally started out photographing weddings in Hampshire, but now I have moved to the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border and my work takes me all across the county, including Stratford-Upon-Avon, Leamington Spa, Rugby and Nuneaton.
Your wedding day will go down as one of the most memorable days of your life, especially if you have an amazing Warwickshire wedding photographer on hand to capture all those wonderful moments of fun and laughter to look back on in years to come. Having a wedding photographer who gets you as a couple will really take your wedding photos to another level as you’re able to look back on the precious moments of your wedding and the photos will truly reflect your wedding day and you as a couple, meaning that you won’t be able to wait to share them not only with your significant other but also with your family and friends.
Recommended Wedding Photographers in Warwickshire
Warwickshire is a truly spectacular place to get married in. Brides and grooms looking to get married in the county are often inspired by the history of the local area, as well as the breathtaking countryside. With one of the most famous historic castles in the country, Warwick Castle (I’m currently offering a discount for any couple who books me to shoot their wedding there) and beautiful stately homes serving as perfect backdrops for your wedding in addition to a variety of outdoor venues for an open-air wedding, there is something for all couples in Warwickshire.
Deciding on a venue is one thing while choosing a wedding photographer based near the venue is another. Even if you’re jumping on the trend of destination weddings, it’s great to find a photographer who is at least familiar, if not directly experienced, with your chosen venue. Having a wedding photographer who is willing to scope out the location and find the best spots for eye-catching photos is well worth it. I always scout out a venue that I haven’t shot at before because then I know the best place for bride and groom portraits, where the light will be at different times of the day and exactly how to get to your venue so there is no chance of me getting lost. I will also talk to the wedding team to get to know them and how they run the wedding day.
Advantages of Hiring a Professional Wedding Photographer
Nowadays, most people have cameras right on their phones, but these devices are best left for casual shots of wedding guests. When it comes to your wedding, professional, high-quality wedding photography from a professional photographer is well worth it. Skimping on your wedding photography or hiring an amateur for such an important occasion is one of the biggest regrets many couples have. An experienced wedding photographer will know exactly what makes for a stunning, emotive photo as they will have a sixth sense about magical moments before they happen and also it takes the stress off of your wedding guests and means that they can just enjoy celebrating your wedding day with you. All of your family and friends will love looking back on your wedding day pictures along with you. You just need to find the right photography style for you.
Capturing Your Wedding Style
Out of all the wedding photography styles, you may have an obvious favourite or need more time to decide what really inspires you. Work with your fiancé to find the right approach for your wedding. Whether you feel strongly about one particular style or you like the idea of trying a mix of traditional and documentary, professional photographers can make it happen. As long as you have a great photographer by your side, the photos of all your favourite wedding moments will turn out beautifully.
A few of the top styles include formal, photojournalistic, landscape and aerial. Dark shadows and colours with sharp angles feature in dramatic wedding photographs, while light, organic colours are signature shades in fine art wedding photography. For timeless wedding photos, many couples opt for at least some black and white photos too. The photography service should also align with the overall tone and mood of the wedding. Intimate destination weddings are different from high-luxury gatherings with hundreds of people in the heart of historic Stratford-Upon-Avon.
My style of photography is documentary. This means that I capture your wedding as it happens and don’t ask you to pose for a certain shot or retake a moment so that I can capture it in a different way. The wedding gallery that I deliver is full of candids, laughter, hugs and fun. I sprinkle in a little bit of the traditional as well because I offer all of my couples group shots and about 10-20 minutes of bride and groom portraits.
Warwickshire Wedding Venues
All of the beautiful Warwickshire scenery makes for incredible wedding day images. The Ettington Park Hotel, Ragley Hall and Coombe Abbey (I have a specific venue page for Coombe Abbey and am offering discounts for couples who book me at this venue) are just a few of the places that sum up the quality of Warwickshire wedding venues. Whether your wedding falls into the category of small, intimate gathering or is more of a large scale affair, you know that there will be a wedding venue that suits your taste.
Stress-Free Wedding Photography
With a long list of things to do in preparation for your wedding in Warwickshire, it’s a great feeling to know that you can relax as you know that your wedding photographer will capture all of the important moments during your big day. Their expertise in wedding posing and style should be evident in their portfolio and reviews. They will know when a moment is about to happen and be able to capture it without interfering in your big day.
