THE NORMANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY DOM & LIAM SHAW
In our twelve years of shooting weddings we have been so fortunate to be given the chance to travel across the country and world-wide to capture the big days of such incredible couples. Last week we were in a gorgeous venue in Mallorca, next month we fly out to Poland but, exciting as it is to see different parts of the world, for us it is always just as special to capture weddings in our home county of Yorkshire with it’s own fantastic venues for wedding photography such as The Normans in York. Regardless of where we travel to, our aim is always to make our photos instantly identifiable as York Place images; a subject that we actually recently wrote an article about for The Photographer Academy (click here to read the full article). In it we talk about how we worked hard to create images that were no longer just photos by Dominique or Liam Shaw but by York Place Studios, that weren’t just documentary images but had our style and composition attached to them: street-style documentary wedding photography. More than that we wanted to create a style in which each individual image would have a distinct and instantly recognisable ‘York Place’ visual fingerprint to it regardless of the type of wedding, the size or the location – a mission we continue to pursue each and every time we shoot.
Jo and Oli’s wedding at the Normans in York back in November last year was the perfect opportunity to explore that visual style and, whilst still retaining the essence and atmosphere of the gorgeous venue that is the Normans, look to create some streety, layered, characterful images with a touch of humour and plenty of personality. Jo, Oli and all their friends and family were an absolute delight and complete party animals (Jo lifting Dom up on the dance floor is an image that will always live with us!) and it was an absolute privilege to capture such a gorgeous wintry wedding.
Below are just a few of our favourites.
