Congratulations on your engagement! Here you can read about my approach as a Wedding Photographer, and learn more about what makes booking with Ashley Nesbitt Photography unique and special.
My approach as a Wedding Photographer is relaxed and informal, whilst being extremely professional. I am a contemporary wedding photographer capturing the emotions and details of the day, using a reportage / candid style, backed up with relaxed group shots and, of course, stunning shots of you as a couple. I don’t take you away from your guests for hours – taking over the day. Instead I work very closely with you during our meetings before the wedding, so you can relax on the day knowing that I will capture everything that is important to you. I also do not over-pose you and make you feel uncomfortable – instead I work with your natural emotions and direct you into natural poses.
I am not a grumpy stereotypical wedding photographer bossing every one about – I just have fun with you and your guests. After your day, you will receive impeccable service whilst we work together to create your perfect album, then at the end of the proces you will receive a stunning, handmade album, made with your tastes and choice of photos at the forefront of my mind.
Why is this? Because I LOVE my work – I am still always honoured to be involved in the most important day of your life. I am passionate about photography, and about weddings. I like capturing all those details that you have spent time and money preparing for your day, and I love seeing the look on couples faces when they look back at their wedding photographs. I am a full time, fully qualified, professional wedding photographer, and I have been a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the British Professional Photographer’s Assosiation (BPPA) and am currently a member of the Guild of Wedding Photographers . I have been awarded the LSWPP, LBPPA & QMG qualifications and am currently working towards my Associate level (that only 10% of photographers ever get). As a full time photographer, I am fully focussed on weddings – you are not squeezed in around my day job – I am always around to help, and answer any questions – however small you think they might be.
I have been working as a Wedding Photographer for around 14 years, starting as an assistant, then working alongside other photographers, and then worked my way up to head photographer until I started my own business 7 years ago. I have done weddings all over the world, and I have taken pictures for several well known personalities, including Michel Parkinson, Martin Johnson (England rugby captain), Francois Pienaar (South African Rugby Captain) and Harry Gration (off the telly).
I have also done work for Castle Howard‘s and Leeds United‘s brochures and advertising, as well as having images on the cover of the York City Wedding Guide, and the advertising for the Churchill Hotel, the Pavillion Hotel, the Hospitium and Sandburn Hall.
