Best Wedding Photographer Leeds
About Howard Barnett Yorkshire Wedding Photographer
It’s a Wedding Not a Photoshoot
When you think back to your wedding day, you want to remember how great everything was: all the love, all the emotion, how much fun you had.
I work very hard to make sure my couples enjoy their wedding day to the fullest. My positive, upbeat approach ensures that everyone is relaxed and looks their best.
It’s About You
You should be comfortable with your photographer. That’s why I suggest a pre-wedding chat a month before the wedding day. It’s a great opportunity for me to spend a little time with the bride and groom before the wedding, so that on the day, I can create amazing photographs.
The Album Design
One of the things that sets me apart is my custom designed wedding albums.
Initially, I design a first draft, my vision of the wedding day – and since every wedding is different and every couple unique, I don’t use pre-designed templates.
Every page of every album is custom designed by me and then approved by the bride and groom. This process is not rushed. I am creating a family heirloom and it has to be perfect.
My studio is 100% digital and I use the latest Nikon cameras and lenses. All images are captured in “RAW” mode. Unlike JPEGS’s, RAW files, (also referred to as digital negatives) give me the latitude for enhancing and colour correcting my images in post-production. This also means that any photograph can be made into colour, black and white, sepia or one of many other custom effects. Working with RAW images is more time consuming and requires much more computer storage, but the high-quality photographs which I produce make it well worth the extra effort. I also safeguard my images with the use of large Thunderbolt Drives and other redundant back-ups. My post-production is done in Lightroom and Photoshop, my clients deserve the very best.

I love photographing people and creating flattering images. My clients, in essence, hire me to see their wedding day through my eyes. It is my privilege to ensure that every meaningful detail is photographed in a relaxed, unobtrusive, artful way. It’s also my job to create a masterpiece album, custom designed by me and handcrafted specifically for each bride and groom. It’s very heart-warming to know that the photographs I create for my clients will become treasured by the family for generations to come.
I am very passionate about my photography
I have photographed weddings across the UK and abroad for over 15 years. My formal training and experience in photojournalism and traditional portraiture earn me high praise and enthusiastic referrals. My work is regularly featured in numerous publications.
