AWARD WINNING LEEDS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Leeds is a vibrant, exciting and busy city in West Yorkshire. With a population of half a million people, it always has something going on and weddings here are as different from one another as the people! Leeds is the home of the University of Leeds, Leeds Fest, Leeds United FC, as well as beautiful historic buildings and architectural wonders that make the choice of Leeds wedding venues huge! You can also step away from the vibrancy of the main city and find yourself in stately homes like the Woodlands Hotel, historical sites such as Kirkstall Abbey and beautiful countryside.
ILTO is a Leeds wedding photographer company that specialises in reportage photography around this fantastic city, as well as Yorkshire as a whole. Our photographers seek to capture the real events: the moments of tears and laughter, the silly dances, and the personality and emotion of your day. The only thing we don’t photograph is the wedding breakfast; no one wants to see themselves eating! We create photos that show everything that makes your wedding day unique to you and nothing is missed. This means that when you receive your photos, you’ll find yourself saying over and over again: “I love that one!”
LEEDS WEDDING VENUES
We have covered a huge range of Leeds wedding venues. This includes the Woodland Hotel, which was a beautiful venue for Ryan and Helen’s wedding; Weetwood Hall with Phil and Caroline, where the secluded woods are perfect for creative photos; and the Leeds Club right in the city centre, full of bustling life that reflected the energy of Sharon and Matt’s winter wedding. Make sure you check out all the wedding venues we’ve covered, with examples of our Leeds Wedding photography, on our blog. You’ll see for yourself that we’re the best and most natural wedding photographers for your day!
The Woodlands Hotel is a spot we’ve visited countless times and is definitely up there on our list of favourite Leeds wedding venues! The staff at the Woodlands go above and beyond to serve the couples that celebrate there and we’ve never had a bad experience yet. Whether it rains of shines, The Woodlands Hotel has always proved a great place.
Left Bank Leeds is another that comes to mind when thinking of fantastic wedding venues in this city as it captures a lot of what Leeds is about. The Left Bank always has some kind of event on, be it art, music or yoga, which captures the way this city is a hub of culture and creativity. Having a wedding here sets you in the middle of Leeds’ culture and art, grounding your day in the character of your city.
At ILTO Photography, we’re proud to call ourselves Leeds wedding photographers, serving people in this city with our unique photography.
You’re probably aware, there are a lot of Leeds wedding photographers out there! So what makes ILTO different?
Approach to Photography
Our approach and style makes us different from your average wedding photographers in Leeds. We pride ourselves on being like friends with cameras; we’ve laced up wedding dresses, picked up button holes, taken the groom to church, and provided emergency safety pins. In fact, we do anything we can to help you get the most out of your day as it goes so quickly! We are there from the wedding preparations right up to your first dance. If you’re looking for a Leeds wedding photographer that goes above and beyond, delivering the most stunning photos, then we can help.
Our approach is centred around being friendly and approachable. We’re certainly not into being a cold and stuffy presence at your wedding! Instead, we like to think of ourselves as much more like guests; blending into the celebrations, lending a helping hand, and all the while taking professional and beautiful photographs.
We believe it’s when we blend into the crowd that we can get the most natural photos that you’ll treasure for years. Whether it’s the moments of side-splitting laughter, a shared kiss, or your little niece’s face as she brings the rings down the aisle. Your wedding day will fly by, but we’ll be there to capture every moment – the ones you cherish and the ones you didn’t even realise were happening!
We work in a natural and candid style, known as reportage photography, to provide stunning photos that capture your personality. Every wedding is unique and we bring the atmosphere of your wedding out in the pictures so you’ll rememer all the details of how your felt decades down the line.
The bride and groom preparation shoots are one of our favourite times of the day, as they have a pensive, yet excited quality to them, and we capture this build up perfectly in our award-winning images. We help you to remember the emotions behind every moment: the anticipation and excitement of preparation, the nerves, the love and joy during the ceremony and speeches, and the fun of everything else afterwards. We love being a wedding photographer in Leeds, meeting such a huge range of different people and getting a glimpse into so many different relationships.
We have a huge portfolio of experience photographing weddings around Yorkshire, the UK, and of course, Leeds! We’ve been at countless weddings around Leeds and are familiar with a huge number of different venues. If you want to get away for an hour and have some more intimate photographs focused on just you as a couple, we’ll know all the best spots for your location.
Unlike some wedding photographers, we have a massive amount of experience shooting weddings in Leeds. If you’re looking for a photographer that’s local and knows the area, then ILTO is perfect for you.
