Hello & Welcome

I’m Annemarie, a York photographer. 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!

about me

MEET THE TEAM

hello

I’m Annemarie, a full time photographer living and working in York.

I’ve been a photographer my entire working life, working for Michael Frost Studio in Shambles, York and a large Birmingham photographic studio, before founding my own business seventeen years ago.

My customers book me for my light, bright, natural pictures, my storybook albums with lots of details and emotion and my experience shooting in all seasons.

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.

I’ve shot almost 1000 weddings in my career, all over the UK and Europe and once travelling as far as Uganda.

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.

MY APPROACH

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 all my packages include digital photographs for sharing AND an album which will stand the test of time becoming a family heirloom to be treasured across generations.

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.

A note about an extra photographer:

Throughout most of my career I have shot a wedding as the sole photographer, arriving at the place of ceremony ahead of the bride in time to meet the groom, best man and ushers. I think wedding albums are special when they reflect the style and vision of the principal photographer

However if second photographer preferred £200

 

FAQ'S
  • What is your experience? I’m a full time professional photographer with over 20 years’ experience shooting both film and digital. I have been in business for over 15 years and have shot almost 1000 gorgeous weddings in my career.
  • Are you qualified?  I’m a qualified, licentiate member of the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography) and a member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers). I also have an HND in Design and Photography and worked as an apprentice for two of the top photographic studios in the UK.

 

  • Meeting: I’d love to meet with you as soon as you can make space in your diary. My studio is based in the pretty village of Bishopthorpe.
  • Will we have to pose for lots of boring family pictures? No! All my clients are offered a meeting at the studio before the wedding. 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.

 

  • Do you only shoot country weddings? I shoot all kinds of country weddings from rustic barns and elegant country house hotels to stunning weddings at home. I can also be tempted into the city : )

 

  • Payment: A £500 deposit is required to book my services. This retainer secures your date and timeframe for you alone and is therefore non refundable.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

There’s something about autumn that lends itself to romance. Perhaps it’s the hazy memories of warm nights and dancing beneath the stars, or the pictures on social media that take us back to the longer days and outdoor parties. Or maybe it’s just because this is the...
