Real moments, real stories, real memories.


Our Yorkshire-based family team of multi-award-winning wedding photographers and videographers travel all around the world, from Leeds to Lisbon capturing beautiful weddings for our incredible couples.

Whether celebrating in grand surrounds or a local village hall, we believe that wedding photography is, at its heart, all about people, and capturing people and personality is our true passion.

Our documentary style means there’s no need to pose or pretend to do something, we capture everything right there in the moment, utilising our vast experience and creative vision to create natural, artistic wedding photographs that take you right back to the moment they were taken.
From the get go we knew that getting the right photographer was really important for us, we really wanted something natural, that captured all the tiny moments, and that wasn’t at all forced (neither of us are particularly comfortable with having our photo taken). On the day Dom & Liam kept us both very calm and made us feel so comfortable! They really did blend into the background, and all of our guests commented on how unobtrusive they were (and how lovely). They arrived first thing in the morning, and stayed right up until the very end! Which was amazing!! Everything we had asked for, they were on it, so we really could just relax and enjoy our day confident that they were capturing it all.

How we work
Your wedding day is not just a hugely significant event in your relationship, it’s one of the rare occasions in life where everyone you know and love comes together in the same place at the same time, and we believe that is something truly worth celebrating. Our wedding photography and videography centres not just on the formalities and beauty of the wedding but on the fun, laughter, in-jokes and relationships between family and friends. We capture not just the big moments but the tiny interactions and connections that make up the true story of a wedding day and capture the real personalities of those who mean so much to you.
As documentary wedding photographers we don’t ask anything of our couples on their wedding day. We want you to stay in the moment at all times, enjoying your day and never having to worry about posing for the camera – we’ll use our 16 + years of experience to capture everything just the way it happened, turning natural moments into beautiful, humorous, emotional and artistic photographs worthy of a place on your wall. And in celebrating spontaneity and capturing real moments we hope to share with you not just what your wedding looked like but how it felt to be there.

Welcome to the York Place Family
At York Place you don't get one prime photographer and a second shooter; you get two of the most well-known wedding photographers in the world. Brother and sister team Liam & Dominique Shaw speak at photography events worldwide and (quite literally) wrote the book on documentary wedding photography, so you can be certain that no moment will be missed!

Joined by brother-in-laws Matt & Alex on video, you can again enjoy a double prime-shooter setup or keep the team smaller with a single, massively experienced wedding videographer. Whichever combination you choose, we all know exactly how the other thinks, meaning you can enjoy a seamless experience in both photography & filming, all captured in our trademark York Place documentary style.

From the iconic Queen’s Hotel to the elegant Oulton Hall, to Gastro Pubs, stately homes, gardens, barns, breweries and galleries, Leeds and the surrounding West Yorkshire countryside has an incredible array of wedding venues of every shape and size. If you’re getting married in Leeds and connected with our documentary wedding photography style we’d love to chat about your plans.
 There’s no words good enough to describe how brilliant York Place Studios were! We knew we didn’t want conventional wedding shots; we wanted everyone at our wedding to relax, enjoy the day and be themselves, and that included ourselves! Looking at Dom & Liam’s work online and then talking to them before booking confirmed for us that they were the right choice, and the service they provide is second-to-none. The pictures are beautiful, funny, and heartwarming, you can tell that this team care about the people they are photographing and the story they are telling. Their art is amazing. The moments they have caught of our friends, family and all our loved ones will stay with us forever!

Dom and Liam are the most genuine, sweet and talented artists who were a highlight of our January wedding.

We had a candlelit wedding, and knew that capturing the lighting was our main perogative, as well as the fact we wanted only candid photos. Dom and Liam expertly fitted into the tone of the wedding, being completely unnoticeable in the intimate church setting, but being friendly and getting on with all our guests at the same time.

The photos of the day speak for themselves. They are everything we asked for and more, each one is a piece of art in its own right

We are obsessed with our wedding photos!! We didn’t want a typical set of posed wedding photographs that we would never look at. We were hoping for wedding photos that could capture the feeling and energy of our wedding ... York Place Studios did an amazing job of capturing moment after moment in a way that tells a story through different perspectives, and takes you back to those moments every time you look at the photos.
