Wedding Photography

You just have to live and life will give you pictures

Stay In The Moment - Wedding Photography by Dom & Liam Shaw

There are moments in life that should never be forgotten. They live long in our memories and help to define our past and present. Those memories should never be allowed to fade but be passed from generation to generation, an emotion that can still be felt at the merest glimpse of an image.

Wedding photographs are not just a two dimensional picture. They should remind you of the way that you felt, the sounds that you heard, that scent in the air and the electricity running through you as you experienced that moment full: unexpected, overpowering, unintended and irreplaceable. Wedding photographs should transport you back to that place, that moment in time, not just moments but perfect memories. It is the job of the wedding photographer to ensure that those memories never escape.

TWO INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, ONE GREAT TEAM.

We could not recommend Dom and Liam enough! We had the most amazing day and a huge amount of that was down to them being the best photographers ever! We absolutely loved having them photograph our day. They were so thoughtful, enthusiastic, subtle and just basically great fun to be around! It was like having a couple of friends there, which is exactly what we wanted.

Celia & Alastair {Battersea Park, London}

Every photo managed to capture our wedding day so perfectly. Looking through our photos now we have a story of the whole day, showing us things that we never realised were even happening. We have had so many people come to us and tell us the photos are the best they have seen and we are so proud of this.

Hollie & Kieran {Colehayes Park, Devon}

We honestly cannot properly put into words how amazing our photographers were. Dom and Liam were beyond incredible. As my husband and I are both creative, and I myself as 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.

Chelsea & Antony {Morden Hall, London}

We absolutely love the work of Dom & Liam. We have had so many comments on our wedding photos – people just absolutely love the style. They managed to capture all the happiness, joy and laughter of the entire day. Not only that but they made us and all our guests feel so comfortable – they literally blended in and worked their magic. We highly recommend their work – you won’t regret booking them!

Beth & Tim {Star Inn, Yorkshire}

Dom and Liam are the most genuine, sweet and talented artists who were a highlight of our January wedding. The photos of the day speak for themselves. They are everything we asked for and more, each one is a piece of art in its own right. They went above and beyond what was asked of them to make the day perfect, and we will aways have the photos they took to remember not only the day but the amazing people that took them.

Juliet & Richard {Finca Son Salas, Mallorca}

Oh my lord, these guys are good. They absolutely captured the atmosphere, the feeling, the love. The photos are intimate, expressive, stunningly artistic. And they are SO NICE to deal with – professional, passionate, lovely. I literally cannot recommend these guys highly enough, we are beyond delighted with what they delivered.

Ally & Alex {Hedsor House, Buckinghamshire}

yorkshire-wedding-photographer-testimonials

We are obsessed with our wedding photos! York Place Studios did an amazing job of capturing moment after moment in a way that tells a story through different perspectives, and takes you back to those moments every time you look at the photos. If you are looking for lively, candid, cool and artistic wedding photos, we would highly recommend York Place Studios.

Hadar & Dan {Islington, London}

london-pub-photographer-testimonials

Choosing our wedding photographers was the easiest task we had. The photos on their website were so mesmerising, we wanted to frame them without knowing the people, and this is the difference between traditional wedding pictures to the art they bring. The results were phenomenal. We cannot recommend York Place Studios enough, anyone who’ll have them on their wedding is lucky.

Gemma & John {The Ravenswood, West Sussex}

destination-wedding-photography-testimonials

These guys really are the masters of their art. I didn’t want traditional, staged photos for our wedding and was looking for something more spontaneous and humorous. I came across their website and was blown away. They were exactly what I was looking for – fun, silly and different. On the day, they really were amazingly friendly and easy to work with. And then the photos arrived… Unbelievable! I have nothing but praise for them.

Shelby & Creagh {Nantucket, USA}

nantucket-destination-wedding-photographer-testimonials

This review is long overdue, but the gratitude we feel toward Dom and Liam has only grown since our wedding several months ago. The way in which they captured our day is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. No posing, perfectly imperfect….just as it happened. Each time we go through them we find little bits that we never noticed. They exceeded our expectations beyond what we can describe in words.

Bex & Dave {Comrie Croft, Scotland}

scottish-wedding-photographer-testimonials

There’s no words that are good enough to describe how brilliant York Place Studios were when it came to capturing our day! The pictures we have of our wedding are beautiful, funny, and heartwarming, you can tell that this team care about the people they are photographing and the story they are telling. Their art is amazing. The moments they have caught of our friends, family and all our loved ones will stay with us forever and we know we made the right choice!

Keep It Real

talk-testimonials

Dom and Liam transfer their roots from street photography to weddings by literally photographing ordinary moments and situations in an incomparable, interesting and creative way. You don’t need extraordinary places with extraordinary people to create a successful reportage, you can do it in any situation and York Place are the masters.

To a lot of people, when they think ‘Documentary Wedding Photography’, they think ‘York Place Studios’ – they really are that synonymous with the craft. Their ‘Create, Don’t Recreate’ tagline epitomises the reportage approach to me – and the particular way in which they go about that, with such eyes for artistic compositions and deeply layered imagery is something to behold.

London Wedding Photographers | International Street Photographers

For the last 12 or more years we’ve travelled the world with our cameras looking for visual stories; significant memories in the lives of others. We’ve seen moments that changed history in the biggest and smallest of ways, we’ve seen cultures come together, optimism in hardship, beauty and laughter in friendship and borne witness time and again to the most important moments in two people’s lives.

But through all that we’ve come to realise that the most powerful memories don’t necessarily come directly from a giant event in someone’s life, even if that event is the setting. They come from the people who are there with you in that moment. They come from the friends who laugh with you, the communities that surround you, the slightest of touches and the smallest of interactions.

Memories are more than a mere recording of an event, they’re a feeling, an understanding of a moment. For us as photographers that’s exactly what we want to capture in the stories that we find just about everywhere we look.

Official Fujifilm X-Photographers

We're incredibly honoured to have been asked to represent Fujifilm as official ambassadors and members of the exclusive group of Worldwide FUJIFILM X-Photographers. It's fair to say we have something of a love affair with Fujifilm cameras having picked up the original X100 back in 2011 for our street work and having shot almost exclusively with their fantastic X-Series cameras for both wedding photography and street photography since 2016.

Fujifilm's cameras are absolutely integral to the style of wedding photography we produce and we couldn't be more proud to represent such an amazing, innovative company.

Wedding Images That Belong In Print

We believe that our images are best seen in print and that's why we've teamed up with the stunning Fountain Albums to create modern, artfully crafted albums with incredible attention to detail and quality at every step.

We've always loved seeing our images in print and know there's nothing quite like flipping through your album, reliving your day and remembering the crazy stories that happened between all of your family and friends. What we've always wanted though was to find an album that that blended naturally with our streety, photography-first based approach to wedding photography. Created by expert printers with more than 65 years experience behind them, Fountain Albums are exactly what we've been looking for - so much so that they created a very special "York Place Album" especially for us!
