Property Photography - guest houses

 

This was a gorgeous house I photographed the other day for local York estate agents Peter Moody and Co. Situated down a lovely tree lined avenue in York, it is a large house and great to photograph. I especially love the spacious entrance hall and landing.

When photographing property I make sure I get as many wide angle shots of each room as possible. I also like to capture the nice details of each property. All images are fully edited afterwards, with blue skies added if necessary. Not in this case, it was a lovely sunny day! I like to shoot through open doorways as I think it shows the layout of the house well.

As part of my work as a property photographer in York, I also provide detailed floor plans with measurements. And since the first lockdown I have taught myself how to produce 360 tours of properties. I find these ae so helpful in these days of Covid restrictions as it really enables potential buyers to virtually walk through the property before making an actual visit. Of course, they still need to go and see the place in person if they are interested after that, but I think the 360 tours really help people get a feel for a place, so hopefully only genuinely interested parties will go for a viewing in person. 

I am lucky to be a property photographer in York as there such nice places in the area!

Property Photography - guest houses

This was a fab shoot! A gorgeous holiday let, opening soon, situated in the centre of York.

 

It is marketed by the fab YorGuestLtd. who are a pleasure to work with, "Corner Lodge", Bishophill. The attention to detail is amazing, beautiful artwork and a lovely place to photograph. As always, I get overall shots of each room from as many different angle as possible, but I also like to capture the details of each property. I offer photography, floor plans, or 360 tours, of holiday lets, or private homes for sale or long term lets.

Property Photography - guest houses

During these times of restrictions, although I miss doing wedding and portrait photography as much as I used to, I am so lucky that the property market has remained largely open. This has enabled me to continue working, which I am so grateful for. Property photography is so important when selling or letting a property, either with estate agents or for holiday rental. I capture each room from as many angles as I can, and I also love to capture the details of each property to show their uniqueness. I like to capture images from different angles and use reflections where possible, to make each property stand out through it's photography. Over the last few months I have developed the property photography side of my business and I am now producing amazing 360 tours so the viewer can virtually walk round each place and get a real feel for it. Floorplans are another part of the packages I provide if required.

 

These images were taken at the beautiful Westergate House which is a b and b in York.  Read More

Family portrait shoot for Christmas

I am so lucky, I LOVE my job!!! Over my 20 odd years in business “people photography” has always been my greatest passion.... weddings and family groups, toddlers and babies. Each shoot is special to me and I capture people in a natural, informal way,  and work with the environment I’m in. 

Unfortunately, this year all but 2 of the weddings I had booked have rearranged to another date due to Covid. I’ve really missed doing them and cannot wait until the wedding industry is back on its feet again. Thankfully I’ve been extremely busy with the other side of my business which is property photography, as well as doing loads of family groups. 

A family portrait is something which can be treasured forever, and is often overlooked until children have grown up. It is lovely to capture a family at different stages over the years, and people should not put off having it done, as in years to come they may regret not having had one.

I think a family photo shoot is a perfect gift for loved ones this Christmas! The shoot can be booked in time to get prints or canvasses done as gifts. I also provide gift vouchers that can be given as a present and the shoot booked at a later date. 

 

As with all my photography, my style is very relaxed and natural. I love to meet a family in the comfort of their own home, or at a location special to them. Children feel much more relaxed in their own surroundings, rather than a studio, and equally location shoots are great for kids as they can roam around and not feel like they are posing for the camera. Whichever type of shoot is chosen, I always make sure I get loads of different group shots, plus the children on their own. I provide a huge choice of images and any can be colour or black and white. A photo shoot is a really fun thing to do as a family, and it captures those special times forever, as well as making a brilliant present for loved ones at Christmas!

£75 for a natural shoot, your home or location in York 

Includes 6 digital images chosen from many, high resolution copyright free and printable (Extra images can be purchased if required)

Wedding photography and wedding venue photography

During the Covid crisis, all the weddings I had booked for this spring and summer have rearranged. Luckily I am free on all the new dates, so I can look forward to doing them next year. However, I have missed doing wedding photography this season! So this job at the gorgeous Highcliffe Manor, Flamborough Head, was fantastic!

 

The brief was to get some lovely location shots of the amazing venue, rooms set up for a wedding, exteriors, bedrooms, and a general showcase of the venue. It is a stunning place, and absolutely perfect for a wedding. I was in my element! I was also asked to get some shots of the gentleman who owns the venue, and his family. His stunning granddaughters modelled bridal gowns for me, and the locations to get great shots, in and around the venue, were endless. I was lucky enough to work with Hayley Smith Venue Stylist, Rosebud Flowers and Treasured Brides. A great team of talented and lovely people! 

This was a great shoot at a fabulous location, and it was so nice to capture some wedding images after what feels like so long, even if it wasn't a "real wedding". Wedding photography has been my passion for so many years, and this was fab!
