Annemarie King : York Wedding Photographer bio picture
  • Hi there. I'm Annemarie and I specialise in shooting country weddings: from rustic barns, PapaKata teepee's, and elegant Yorkshire country house hotels, to stunning weddings on the lawn at home.
    I'm a country girl from York who's influenced by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and the ever changing colours of the seasons.
    My images are light, bright and natural; they show all the important things at a wedding - the special moments with family and friends, the setting and scenery of the day ... right down to the smallest details you've spent so much time crafting.

Have you ever thought about asking your dog to be a guest at your wedding?

Whether you dream of your dog walking down the aisle in the cutest of bow ties befitting for the occasion or couldn’t imagine your couple portraits without your furry companion nestled in between you as a party of three, as The Phodographer, I’m the girl to capture this special connection on your wedding day.

More and more couples are now choosing to include their pooches in their special day, some having a starring role as members of their wedding party or being included in the family pictures and I have to say – I love it!

The Black Swan Hotel at Helmsley in beautiful rural North Yorkshire is super dog friendly and makes a point of making sure ALL their guests receive a warm Yorkshire welcome. This shoot was a collaboration with some wonderful Yorkshire wedding suppliers and hopefully gives a glimpse into what a lovely venue the hotel can be for your wedding.

I do like to photograph in the gorgeous woodland, even more so when it’s with such a lovely, fun couple.  Couple shoots are such a great way to get to know your photographer before being photographed on your wedding day. As a photographer it’s good to learn how you interact as a couple – are you romantic, fun, cuddly, jokey – or all of the above!!

I had a great time with these two – we even spotted a treecreeper! Bonus!

Part two of our woodland festival wedding styled shoot.

We teamed up with some of Yorkshire’s best wedding suppliers to collaborate on this woodland, festival style wedding inspiration shoot. The styling and floral design was created by Lucy MacNicoll in Knaresbrough and I love the combination of hot pinks and oranges with the soft meadow grass that I chose for these portrait images of the couple.

 

I love to shoot wedding portraits. I choose simple, uncluttered backdrops and areas with beautiful flattering light. I like to always shoot with a shallow depth of field to give my images a soft, dreamy look. Detail shots make a set of images all themore interesting and I like to photograph them with the same look and feel as my people pictures to produce a body of work that fits together.

So many gorgeous details on this shoot – the raspberry pink tie and the faded pink colours that make the naked cake by Sarah of Choose cake so special.  The moss on the tables and the slices of tree trunk are so beautiful. I adored the floral crown!
