My name is Peter Baldwin, a wedding photographer based near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

I prefer to be described more as a wedding photojournalist, employing a mix of traditional and natural styles of photography, rather than being gimmicky or everything being posed.

My mission is to provide you with images that provide a timeless memory that you can be proud to share with your family and friends for years to come, and not be viewed as "outdated" a few years down the line.

Experience
I first became interested in photography in my mid-teens, back in the late 70's, and since then it has been my passion for well over 30 years. I shot my first full wedding at the age of 19, and have continued to perfect the art by attending workshops and training courses, as well as studying other professionals in the field and learning from their techniques.

Over the years I have also photographed landscapes, people, pets, architecture and more. But it’s weddings that give me the most pleasure. I think it’s the fact that each one is different, full of changing emotions, as well as the fact that I am capturing images that I know are special to you.

Something else about me
Are you "camera shy"? I am too! I hate having my photo taken! But I see that as a good thing, because it allows me to be empathetic with you when you feel the same.

My clients frequently comment that I work in a friendly and unobtrusive style which puts them at ease, their words better describe my approach than I can. Perhaps it's because I catch a lot of candid, natural photos where most people will agree that they look their best as they get on with just enjoying themselves.

I would love to hear from you
If you're recently engaged, or are now planning your wedding, congratulations, I know you'll be excited! I would love to get to know you and hear your plans, that way, I can share your excitement for your special day with you, and that helps me to create better images for you.

So, get in contact with me today and let me know when you plan to get married. Let's arrange to meet and discuss your personal requirements.

Many thanks for your interest. I really do look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards

Peter
