Wedding and Portrait Photographers in York, Harrogate, Yorkshire
Hi everyone, here are a few words about me, together with an overview of what I do. It's really just a quick overview of my background, and of the experience and broad scope of quality work that Steve Ramsden Photography produces.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm a proud Yorkshireman, I know my tools and my job. At weddings I'm quick, efficient, discreet, creative, and I work with you well in advance to ensure the I capture exactly what you're looking for. For portrait work, we keep you well informed when you book with us, through whichever scheme, so that you understand the process which will secure you some lovely images.
I am the York representative for the Emma's Diary baby photography scheme, and I have dedicated pages on my website covering all aspects of baby photography. Again, I much prefer to give great advice up front than to leave mums wandering what happens next. That way I can ensure that we get the best from your baby's first photo sessions.
I have been a full time professional photographer since 1998, I have been named 'Yorkshire Wedding Photographer of the Year' on numerous occasions by the BIPP, the MPA and by 'Yorkshire Brides'. More recently (ie since around 2014) I turned my eye to photographing families, children and babies, which I love to do. There is nothing more special than to capture families and young ones for future generations. Time moves very quickly, children grow and change very quickly, there is no time like the present.
We have a fully equipped modern photo studio just North of York, on the B1363 (Wigginton Road), approx half a mile South of the beautiful village of Sutton On The Forest. It is ideal for family photography of up to 16 people, children photography, and of course baby and newborn photography, which we do plenty of.
Especially when bad weather beckons, having our own studio allows us to meet your pre agreed appointment time without unnecessary delays. That's particularly brilliant for anyone who travels from afar, large family gatherings, etc, we can guarantee that your photography session will go ahead as planned.
In good weather, and sometimes in not so good weather if you prefer it, we can venture outdoors and into the big wide world. We are situated on the edge of a farm, with easy access to open fields, country walks, and woods. The environment is superb for grungy style photos for the kiddies as well. That makes us the perfect choice for outdoorsy stuff - take the kids out and just let them play, take your pets for a walk, we'll do the rest. The environment changes around us so much that no two days are ever the same. One day we're photographing romantic shots in the long grass, next the children are playing amongst the harvested hay bales, next it's an autumnal backdrop with wonderful colours, and then we're photographing families in the snow.
To personalise your family portrait experience even further, why not book us for a home, or 'on location' photography session at a venue of your choice? This is the perfect option for large family gatherings on special occasions - anniversaries, key birthdays, special holidays, in fact, any occasion that is special to you, we can photograph.
We have been photographing weddings across the UK since 1998, and have since photographed hundreds of weddings in all locations and in all types of weather. You name it, we've photographed it - gorgeous marquee weddings on bright summer sunshine days to candlelit winter weddings in cosy Castles, church weddings, barn weddings, tipis, hotel weddings, and each one as unique and different as the next. You will have lots of ideas about your wedding day – your colour scheme, different venues, who to invite, who will be doing the speeches, the list goes on. It’s always exciting to chat with brides about their plans, and offer advice where we can. If you’re organised and sorted, brilliant, just let us know what you want from us on the day and away we go. If you’d prefer a more hands on approach from us, simply ask our advice and it will be freely given.
On your wedding day we will work quickly, efficiently and unobtrusively, we’ll make sure that your guests don’t hang around. If you’re planning something a little different, let us know, we love a twist to the day, and it all adds to the flavour and character of your wedding.
