About Us

About York Place Studios

York Place Studios isn’t just a collective of four visual artists, it’s a close family team. Founded in 2006 by brother and sister team Dom & Liam Shaw and joined in 2012 by their brother Alex and Dom’s husband Matt, York Place has grown from a local seaside studio to one of the most internationally recognised and respected brands in the world of wedding photography.

The mission of York Place Studios is not just to exceed your expectations of what wedding photography and videography should be, it’s to exceed your imagination of what it even can be. It’s to capture not just the expected beats of a wedding but the moments that really matter. It’s to photograph your wedding; not the way anyone else thinks it should be but the way it really was and the way it really felt to be there, free of the bounds of genre or stereotype.

We’re proud to be brand ambassadors for some of the best manufacturers and suppliers in the world:

FUJIFILM

Dominique Shaw

Photographer

Dominique’s photography has really always been about connection. Take a look through her portfolio and it’s evident that the images she finds worthwhile are those that are first felt rather than seen and, whether by direct eye contact, the slightest of touches or even that inexplicable feeling of emotional attachment to an inanimate, but sentimentally significant object, that connection is always at the forefront of her work.

Dominique’s multi-award winning images have received international acclaim and alongside Liam she has been invited to speak at conferences and events around the world to share her unique vision and approach.

Liam Shaw

Photographer
liam shaw

Liam’s thoughtful approach to photography is self-evident in the detailed, often complex and self-revealing nature of his imagery. A subtle humour shines through his work and his observational style, careful attention to detail and extraordinary way of making visual connections between seemingly disparate stories has become an oft-remarked upon hallmark of the York Place style.

For a man who believes wholeheartedly in validation through art not through awards he’s won more than a few including individual accolades from Rangefinder, This Is Reportage, Fearless and the WPJA. It’s through his life-long creative collaboration with his sister Dominique though that he finds the greatest pleasure in his art.

Matt Thompson

Videographer

Matt comes from a strong technical theatre background – an influence that still runs through his work to this day with careful attention paid to the individuality of each story and character and, as you’d expect, exacting standards when it comes to the recording and creation of soundtracks in his films. When it comes to actors and directing though he’d still rather leave that well alone and focus on utilising his knowledge and skills to help evoke the right atmosphere and show the audience his interpretation of the scene without altering or interrupting the action in front of him.

Matt believes wedding films should be fun, relaxed and characterful, capturing each wedding just the way it felt to be there.

Alex Shaw

Videographer

It’s the intimacy of the film experience that appears perhaps the biggest influence on Alex’s work, often simplifying the scene to focus in on the emotions and reactions of the people at the heart of it and fully exploring the unspoken and one-sided relationship between the camera and the subject.

Alex’s wide cinematic influences are also reflected at the post-production stage, where his keen storytelling, skilled editing and extraordinary ability to find the connections between different moments and people help form the bedrock of York Place Films’ unique wedding filmmaking style.
