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.

Technical Details

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.

Howard Barnett BA (Hons) BIPP

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.

Wedding Photography in Harrogate North Yorkshire

Based in North Leeds, Yorkshire and with over 15 years experience photographing weddings.

I pride myself on being a photographer with a relaxed and friendly approach, capturing your wedding day as it unfolds.

Your photographs will be taken in an unobtrusive way without the need to pose.  If required, family groups can still be photographed but kept to a minimum.

A pre-wedding chat, a month before the wedding day, really helps and I will tailor the photography to your requirements.

My objective is to be discreet and photograph you and your guests in a natural, informal and candid style and capture the mood,

atmosphere and emotion of the day.

Chrissie Lightfoot (Dec 2016)

Howard was fantastic! Can’t recommend him enough for capturing the joy and wonder of our special day with a fabulous mix of informal and formal shots.

He even snapped still life in such an elegant and touching way that you’d want to eat the flowers, plants and cakes right off the print!

Huge appreciation, Howard, for being so professional whilst sensitively human 🙂

Yorkshire Shabby Chic Weddings Ideas 

Shabby chic wedding items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas.

The style is imitated in faux painting using glaze or by painting then rubbing and sanding away the top coat to show the wood or base coats, known as “distressing” the finish of the furniture.

Furniture pieces that are not genuine antiques are usually selected for their resemblance to older furniture styles, and may be reproduction furniture with a distressed finish.

Elaborate furniture appliques depicting flower swags and garlands, cherubs, and other motifs may be added.

Fabrics tend to be cottons and linens, with linen being particularly popular, inspired by old French linens.

Pure whites, as well as ecrus and worn or bleached out pastel colours are favourites. Fabric is often stained with tea to give it the look of old fabric. Bleached and faded are terms often applied to the style.

Vintage floral patterns with pastel colours, cotton ticking patterns, or linen in earth tones, are all typical of shabby chic style.

Shabby Chic Weddings in Yorkshire

Shabby chic is a term that is floated about quite a lot in the weddings world, but it is often an area that is difficult to define as it blurs the line between vintage and rustic.

Put simply, shabby chic is a gorgeous theme that incorporates a slightly worn, home-made feel into any décor for an effortlessly stylish look.

If you’re thinking of including shabby chic elements in your big day then extra wedding points to you

as one of the key wedding trends for 2017  is all about the use of weathered materials and natural elements in the décor.
