I’m Annemarie, I specialise in shooting country weddings.
From home spun rustic weddings in the barn, to beautiful country house hotels. If you’re dreaming of racing down country lanes in a morris minor, having your Summer wedding reception on the lawn at home, or perhaps a hygge candlelit Autumn wedding, I might just be the photographer for you. I can also be tempted into the city!
MEET THE TEAM
I’m Annemarie, a full time photographer living and working in York. As well as being in love with photography, I love animals, books, birding, films,country living.
My love of nature and the countryside drew me to this little niche of mine – shooting country weddings.
I’ve been a photographer my entire working life, working for Michael Frost Studio in Shambles, York and a large Birmingham photographic studio, but it wasn’t until about 15 years ago that I followed my heart, founded my own business and chose to photograph consistently in my own recognisable style, in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
I shoot light, bright, natural pictures. Hand in hand with nature, I’ll use the Yorkshire sky, fields, moors and beautiful buildings as the backdrop to your collection of wedding images.
I’ve shot almost 1000 weddings in my career, all over the UK and Europe and once travelling as far as Uganda. Nowadays, I’m Yorkshire based. I love this work. I think photographers do need to see the beauty in things – in people, and places. That’s how I approach my work, seeking out and capturing the beauty of a person, an event, a family, a special moment in time.
I’m lucky enough to have been awarded BIPP Yorkshire Wedding Photographer of the Year five times and to have been published in all the main wedding magazines and blogs but it’s the relationships with my customers over the years that are the best reward for me.
So whether you are having your wedding on the lawn at your folks place or one of our beautiful country house hotels, I’d love to hear from you.
YOU NEED TO KNOW
Here’s some more info about my wedding photography services, products I offer and pricing. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions.
My images tell the story of your day with a considered, fine art approach that produces a set of images with similar look and feel throughout. Light, colourful and natural; they show all the important things at your wedding – the special moments with family and friends, and the setting and scenery of your day… right down to the smallest details you’ve spent so much time crafting.
Images tell a story when grouped together. This is why I adore designing wedding storybooks. You’ll have the option to choose digital product, or a wedding book, or both, on my price menu. But I hope you’ll consider choosing a book that one day, you can flip through with your children telling them about how that one amazing day unfolded.
I shoot your wedding with a book in mind, mixing moments, portraits and details, story by story as I work throughout the day.
I invite you to collaborate with me on the final design of your wedding book. You’re invited to the studio to choose which pre-designed pages you would like and we’ll redesign others to your style and taste.
” … we may find photographs, like confetti on a ballroom floor the morning after the dance, to keep the event alive in the memory of those who danced all night, or in the imaginations of those who were not invited.” Victor Hugo
This is for those wanting, well, just the essentials! It’s three hours of what I do best – beautiful, natural couple portraits, the ceremony and informal family pictures.

My most popular option! This is six-seven hours and would typically take you from getting ready until speeches (to capture the party atmosphere!)
This service is £1650 and includes digital photographs or an album.
Day coverage for out of season weddings is available from £1400.
I also offer additional packages and options including:
- fine art prints

*Select dates are available, so please get in touch to see if your date is one of them.
“We are absolutely delighted with our wedding pictures there is no doubt you have a fantastic eye, you really captured the natural emotion of our guests & the general feel of the day which is exactly what we wanted.” Mr & Mrs McBride

Here we discuss which images you would like taken, the timings and other important details. I shoot family pictures in an informal way – capturing you as you really are.
