Natural, relaxed, Yorkshire based wedding photographer
Hello! I’m Steph White and I am a Leeds based, natural style documentary wedding photographer, working across the Yorkshire region including Leeds, Harrogate, York, Wakefield and Sheffield. I will also go a little further to wherever your day takes me including destination weddings.
To check my availability for your wedding date or to arrange a meeting to chat over a coffee, just drop me a message via my contact page and I’ll be in touch soon.
It probably won’t come as a surprise, but I love photography! I’ve been always been drawn to the emotion that comes with taking photos of people. Weddings have every type of emotion going, one minute you’re overcome with happiness of seeing your bride or groom for the first time, the next thing you’re laughing your head off at stories during the best man’s speech, only to be drying a tear away as your thoughts are suddenly with the loved ones who would have given their all to attend your beautiful day.
Photography freezes all of these emotions to keep forever, and documentary wedding photography done well will ensure the memories last.
My relaxed, informal style of wedding photography is very unobtrusive, I let your day unfold as it happens. I can provide a little direction for a few group photos to be included if you wish, but I mainly work as an observer. Even with the group shots, I don’t make them too formal, we have a giggle and keep things fun.
I believe the way I work puts you at ease, you will hardly know I am there after a little while. You can enjoy your wedding day with your nearest and dearest without worrying about having to pose for too many staged photographs, in the knowledge that I will be capturing the important, special moments without getting under your feet.
Capturing the fun, excitement and emotion of your wedding is my aim. I want to tell your story.
A little about me
I live in Horsforth, Leeds with my gorgeous son and lovely husband John, who is my rock. John was the one who encouraged me to jump in feet first and pursue my dream job as a wedding photographer. I have never looked back!
I studied media at University back in 2003, and this is where I first found my passion for photography. However, upon graduating, my career led me down a marketing and events route. I never gave up on the photography though and whilst photographing in my spare time, I realised that people have always been my favourite subjects. Capturing the every-day, telling a story through images, is what I love to do the most. And what better story is there than a love story? Wedding photography is my calling.
Having a little one at home lets me work my hours around him. It often means I respond to emails at odd times, and my ‘weekends’ tend to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, but it works for us, and we have never been happier!
Outside of wedding photography, we travel as often as we can and I also have a passion for live music. My personal interests often seep through into my work, you’ll often see a travel or gig pic or two over on my Instagram feed.
It’s been nearly seven years since I took my first wedding booking, and now my spring and summer weekends (and autumn and winter are gaining popularity too – in fact, my first ever wedding was a winter wedding) are now spent working with fabulous clients throughout the gorgeous venues and locations throughout Yorkshire. Trying not to sound cliche, it really is the best job in the world – I get to meet so many lovely people and share the happiest day of their lives with them. Who could ask for more?
