We honestly cannot properly put into words how amazing our photographers were. Dom and Liam from York Place Studios were beyond incredible. As my husband and I are both creative, and I myself am a filmmaker and photographer, getting the right photographers for our wedding was the only thing we were really picky about. And so after searching high and low, we found York Place Studios and fell in love. Then, from the moment we met them, we knew they were right. Not only do they have unrivalled technical talent with an amazing eye for things and a natural gift for taking beautiful photos using natural light, but they also have an uncanny knack for capturing the little moments: small but wonderful parts of the day that would usually go unnoticed yet which they manage to capture perfectly. From someone pulling a hilarious face, to a fleeting, beautiful moment between my father and I, they caught the parts most special to us. Dom and Liam’s unobtrusive approach was also so welcome – I was told many times after how lovely it was to have photographers who were discreet but also so kind and friendly! Everyone loved them, and they worked all day to make sure they didn’t miss a thing. Needless to say, we were over the moon with our pictures and I think the best testament is that they are so accurate in portraying the day exactly as we remember it, and that’s what we were after. We seriously cannot recommend Dom and Liam enough! Thank you for giving us photos to treasure forever!

Dom and Liam, we can not thank you enough for the beautiful photos we have got from our wedding. I was quite fussy about not wanting “cheesy and old fashioned” photos and you definitely are not either of those things. We have had endless compliments about the photos. Some of our friends and family have said they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. They capture the day perfectly. Again our guests have said the same thing.
Neither of us thought we would feel comfortable being ‘papped’ all day but as you know, we definitely got into it due to you guys being so lovely to be around and making us feel at ease. So many people have said they barely knew you were there! You went above and beyond what we expected and i really appreciate the constant communication (you must be on your email 24/7)!!
Also, just want to say, the slideshow preview you did for us, made us cry within seconds!! The music you put with it is perfect and it’s like reliving our wedding every time we watch it (which has been about 124 times!!!!).
Will definitely be using you for some family photography very soon.

We are still wiping away the tears after viewing our INCREDIBLE wedding photographs produced by Dominique and Liam at York Place Studios
Wow! We are utterly blown away with the beauty, comprehensiveness and emotion captured in the photographs you’ve taken on our wedding day. We cannot thank you enough. Our families are equally amazed and it’s so lovely for them as well as us to re-live the special moments of the day. We especially love the couple’s shots and have already earmarked a fair few for the wall. We can’t stop looking at them.
Technical expertise is only one ingredient in finding the ‘perfect’ wedding photographer. Dominique and Liam, you have this in spades! What makes you truly great is that you invested time in really getting to know us as a couple. Somehow you managed to reflect our personalities so accurately and naturally in our photos…this takes serious talent. You are both so professional and such a pleasure to deal with, it was as if we have known you for years. This made all the difference for us when planning our wedding.
It really does mean the world that our wedding day has been documented so beautifully. You guys are amazing – we feel so lucky to have found you!!! Words can not express how grateful we are, our photos are timeless, we will enjoy looking at them for years to come. I can’t wait to share with my children and grand children!

York Place Studios captured EVERY moment of our wedding day and were a pleasure to work with. Dominique and Liam are quite a duo, their photography skills are impeccable and they are an amazing team. Not only did they blend into our day and go un-noticed but you are getting two delightful photographers for the price of one. We picked York Place Studios as we loved their documentary style of photography (rather than posed pictures), that said Dominique and Liam will cater for any request and we ended up with a mix of documentary photos and posed pictures, which we absolutely love. Contacting and keeping in touch with Dominique and Liam also couldn’t have been easier, they are efficient and always reply to emails on the day they receive them – such a pleasure, when you are trying to organise a wedding and really appreciate promptness. We would recommend York Place Studios to all our family and friends and have been overwhelmed by the lovely feedback we’ve received about their photos. Dominique and Liam – thank you so much – you have made the memories from our wedding day timeless.
Caroline & Lee
From our first meeting with Dom & Liam we knew that they were the photographers for us. We wanted a relaxed wedding, with only a few ‘formal’ pictures, and their reportage style of photography suited the occasion perfectly. During the day, both Dom & Liam arrived in the morning to capture Lee and I getting ready, (which is the added advantage of having two photographers on your wedding day to be in different places at the same time!) they then worked tirelessly right from the church ceremony until the very end of the night, making sure to not to miss anything, we now have over 800 pictures! Nothing was too much trouble, meeting every request with professionalism and positivity – they blended into the background and documented the day without directing.
Looking at the final photographs was more like watching a video, as they had managed to capture every real emotion throughout the day – which is a rare talent in photography.
We now have beautiful natural photographs that we will cherish forever.
We couldn’t be happier with York Place Studios and would recommend them to anyone.
Guy & Andrea
The photos are incredible, every single one of them looks fantastic. You’ve perfectly captured the mood of the day and everyone there. They’ve been getting many many compliments from friends & family! We particularly love the ones of us from above during the ceremony, the arty ones throughout the day taken in mirrors and through doors etc, and of course the fisheye shots in the rave cave! Amazing! Thanks again so much for staying so late, you really went the extra mile and it has really made the difference to capturing the day.
Booking you guys was the single best decision we made around the whole wedding – everything from your customer service to your end product is absolutely flawless and I will be recommending you to people without hesitation for years to come! I also think you were the best value and could easily justify charging more given that you work as a genuine pair, the quality & coverage you both achieve is exceptional.
Ollie & David
Choosing York Place Studios as our wedding photographers was one of the best decisions we have ever made. From the moment we met with Dominique and Liam it became apparent that we had struck the jackpot. They are fantastic photographers and fantastic people, with a unique ability to make any couple feel relaxed and totally at ease with being themselves in front of the camera.
Their personable approach and skilled eye for a photo means that their work is wonderfully natural and they have an absolute knack of capturing ‘moments’ and a whole array of emotions – from love and tenderness to fun and laughter. All of this is achieved whilst being so discreet that you tend to forget that they are even there!
I can honestly say that I will look back and cherish the photos they have taken for the rest of my life.
They are, quite simply, perfect.
Thank you both for making our day so special and helping us to relive it over and over again for the rest of our lives.
Petra & Gerard
When we first started looking at photographers in the Robin Hood’s Bay area, York Place Studios’ portfolio really stood out. We thought their pictures were original and not standard at all. When we met Dominique in Scarborough, the decision was easy to make. There was an immediate click and we were impressed with the way they worked.
On the day itself all our expectations came true. We had a wonderful time with Liam and Dominique and had lots of fun together. It was all very relaxed. When we received our preview I even cried. The pictures were just so great, especially because they captured the guests and the atmosphere so well as well. There was a nice balance between posed and spontaneous pictures: Their motto of non-directing photography was clearly visible in the pictures and rendered some great spontaneous photos of us and the guests, but we also had great posed pictures of us on the beach and in town. So all in all a great experience with high quality pictures!
Lucy & Donal
Dominique and Liam, what a team!
Thank you both so much for being there and being so fantastic in every way. To be honest, we weren’t looking forward to being photographed all day but you were stars, you made it all fun, you were great to have around and what do we have at the end of the day? The most amazing set of photographs that describes our memories and everything that our family and friends are talking about. You have not failed to impress us, by your creativeness, enthusiasm (even at midnight!) and efficiency in getting our photographs to us so quickly after our special day.
May you continue to help people capture their special moments and exceed their expectations.
Lynn & Richard
What can we say about Dom and Liam, the phenomenally talented brother and sister team at York Place Studios….other than “BOOK THEM”!!
Living in Buckinghamshire, but planning a wedding in Yorkshire (where we met at school in the 1980’s), is not without its challenges, but the easiest, and first, decision of all was booking Dom and Liam. We didn’t even consider anyone else. Not only did we hugely admire their work, but they are just gorgeous and they are so interested in getting to understand you as a couple, and are genuinely excited about documenting your Big Day. We just knew that we had hit the jackpot with them.
On the day itself, they simply didn’t stop working from early morning to late into the evening…so many guests commented on how hard (but unobtrusively) they worked. They seemed to keep one eye on the indoor action and one eye constantly on the elements so they could “borrow us” for outdoor shots when the light and weather was at its most amazing (we had the coldest, windiest day in April and yet they have captured rare moments of blue sky and streaming light). I have always been blown away by the views from Ravenscar, and Dom and Liam have managed to capture it in the most glorious images I have ever seen of my favourite spot!
We will treasure our photos. Every time we look at them they bring back the fun and the emotion of the day (and some candid shots make us belly laugh every time we look at them!). They are everything, and more, than we had hoped for.
Samara & Ben
Our experience with York Place Studios has been absolutely incredible. Right from the word go, Dom and Liam were incredibly professional and captured our day just perfectly. We loved them being there on the day and the after service has completely exceeded our expectations.
Receiving a slideshow of images just days after the wedding was amazing, followed by a link to all our images and then finally a beautifully presented gift box with a USB containing all our images to share with friends and family and a handpicked selection of prints for us to frame. Guys, you were just brilliant and we would recommend you to everyone!
Steph & Dave
Dominique & Liam – Wow, we are absolutely thrilled with the photographs from both our engagement shoot and wedding. We feel that you took on board everything we asked and that you completely understood us as a couple and understood what we wanted from our photographs, you have exceeded our expectations and really have gone the extra mile.
We love your style of photography, the way you capture details, the innovative angles you take the photographs from and the way you appreciate what really is important to us.
Every time we look at the photographs we feel like we are re-living the day again – magical. Thank you so much for your compassion in 2011 with my Dad’s serious illness, the way you dealt with it was in such a way that we cannot describe in words how you made a very distraught time for ourselves just that little bit easier. Your whole service has been utterly professional, very friendly and approachable both on the day and in the meetings before and after the wedding.
You have been an absolute pleasure to work with, we are delighted with the quality of your work and will be recommending you to everyone. The only problem we have had is deciding which are our favourite photographs to go into the album – what a difficult task when every photograph is amazing.
Lisa & Nick
Capturing moments like you guys do in photos is testament to how good you all are at your job!! We was blown away at the way you have captured the day in all the faces you see and their reactions to the different aspects of the day! We have had so many positive comments from everyone who sees them and they all say they are some of the best wedding pictures they have ever seen! Even my 89 year old Grandma!!
The way you put Lisa and I at ease straight from the start allowed us both to relax and enjoy our big day the way we did. We knew we were on to a winner through the excellent communication we had with you and any questions big or small were answered with ease. It was simply perfect! We have looked at all the photos hundreds of times!!!!!!!! and they simply get better every time we look at them. The preview slideshow brings a tear to our eyes every time! Even the music fits perfectly.
Finally photographers who live in the 21st century and strive towards a modern aspect of catching the day rather than the old boring traditional photos you still see today!! It brought the fun factor to the day rather than the tedious bore of photos here and there. Yes, we had the few traditional shots for the family but the way you work adds an aspect to the day that keeps the memories alive and simply put, we have the memories to relive forever! The best in the business!!
Alex & Paul
Dear Dom and Liam, well, I don’t know where to start with our thank yous to you guys! We have had so many people say how brilliant you were and we couldn’t agree more. From the moment I saw your fantastic website, I knew you were the photographers for us and the people who would capture our special day. The flair and passion you have for photography is inspiring and the care you took over every photo was unbelievable.
It felt like having two extra friends at our wedding and I can’t thank you enough for that – and I can’t believe you stayed all night; thank you so so much for that. What a long day for you, but it just made the best day of our lives even better, knowing that you’d captured every special moment.
I can’t thank you enough. You went above and beyond our expectations (which were high!) and made such a massive impact on our day.
Daisy & Peter
Absolute top class photographers, what a team! We can’t say enough about the skill, understanding and absolute vision to create the most amazing shots. We are so overwhelmed by Dom and Liam’s photographs and couldn’t have had a better family to work with. Everyone at our wedding loved them and love the pics too! They listened to what we wanted and added their own professional touch that worked so well, always on the other end of email when needed. I could go on and on. York Place Studios…. 5* all the way! Thank you once again, for making our day a day to remember forever.
Laura & Tom
We don’t really how to describe the slideshow you produced but the words truly epic spring to mind. The style of the pictures is absolutely awesome, we can’t stop smiling. you guys absolutely nailed the essence of our day and we can’t thank you enough.
Kira & Kevin
Best photographers everrrr! Dom and Liam were truly amazing on our wedding day. Super friendly and ultra enthusiastic, they really helped set the tone for a brilliant day as soon as they showed up. We felt so comfortable throughout with no awkward moments, and they accommodated all our wants and needs with aplomb and gusto! We are so chuffed that York Place Studios documented our special day and we’ll treasure the memories they captured for the rest of our lives. Looking at the photos really takes us back to being there! They well and truly exceeded our expectations in capturing the emotion of the day. Thank you so so much.
Tara & James
Every bride and groom needs Dom and Liam on their wedding day! Their photos are simply stunning. Dom and Liam were there for every special moment, creating beautiful, natural photos. They were so discreet and unobtrusive, our guests barely noticed that they were being snapped. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
