We are Yorkshire wedding photographers, based in Pontefract and bringing our wedding photography services to couples throughout the UK. We love getting to know all our clients, which starts from the very first time we meet each other. The perfect collection of photos stems from your wedding photographers understanding your character and making this shine through your photos. This is where truly stunning, personal and beautiful shots originate. We make the time to get to know you and find out what you want from your wedding photographers. However, it’s equally important that you can get to know us!
ILTO are multi-award-winning, Yorkshire wedding photographers offering premium photography in a natural style. Not just that, we pride ourselves on being “like friends with cameras” – as one of our clients called us! It’s one of the reasons our wedding photography stands out; your wedding guests warm to us and are happy to be photographed by us so we can create really natural and beautiful photos.
How many wedding photographers do you know who would nip out to get Nan a new pair of tights as she’d laddered them? We’ve picked up the button holes, dropped off the bridesmaids, and even take the groom to the church! We go above and beyond to keep your day stress free and running as it’s supposed to. Yes, we’re there to take shots and always create a stunning collection, but if we can help out, we do without fail — just as your friends would.
Our clients tell us that our work ethic, approach and attitude on the day is “a breath of fresh air” in the midst of the busyness. We don’t take control or interfere with your wedding, but take photographs of the events as they happen. It allows us to get natural shots filled with emotions and memories. No matter how many years later you’re looking back on your day, you’ll remember not just how you looked or what you did, but exactly how you felt.

Paul always had a natural eye for photography and was given his first camera at the age of eight, but by his own admission, he wasn’t very good as a child! However, many years on and with a lot of practice, he is now one of Yorkshire’s best wedding photographers.
After a heart attack at the age of 37, he decided to follow his passion and become a wedding photographer, with the support of his wife, Clare. It was not the corporate path that he’d expected to plod along until retirement, but he took a leap of faith to do something he truly believed in and something he loved. That passion is at the heart of ILTO and helps Paul and Clare to create stunning photographs.
In a very short time, he’d cemented ILTO Photography into leading West Yorkshire Wedding Photographers, and had created a thriving business. Paul and Clare had a unique combination that appealed to people across the UK: personality, charisma and a natural ability to capture people of all ages, backgrounds and faiths at their very best.
This is just one of the reasons that Paul and Clare have won the title of Yorkshire’s Most Popular Wedding Photographers consistently in 2014, 2015 & 2016.
Through his personal, confident, caring and professional work ethic, even those who utter that ubiquitous phrase “oh, I hate having my picture taken!” are left smiling when they see the images he takes. Paul’s smile is even wider when, without thinking, they say “I love that one!” – which is what ILTO stands for!
Clare was the brains behind ILTO Photography, and was the one that gave Paul the confidence and support to follow his dreams. She also came up with the great name for the business!
Working full time as a Senior Project Manager in Leeds, Clare was initially involved with the photography business in a supporting capacity… but oh how things have changed! By her own admission, she has a “boring Monday to Friday job”, but has an “exciting weekend job”. How she finds the energy and passion, nobody knows! Yet Clare is always full of bubbly energy and enthusiasm that helps to bring out the joy in every photo.
Clare is integral to every wedding that ILTO Photography covers, and none more so than those where she’s helped to lace up wedding dresses when nerves have got the better of chief bridesmaids and mothers, or simply by providing emergency hair grips and safety pins when needed.
The bond that Clare and Paul have in their own marriage, strengthens the way they work, as they instinctively know what the other is thinking from across a room, which is how and why they get the shots they do. Together, they create stunning photos that capture every moment of your day.
