International documentary wedding photographers and videographers based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Yorkshire's Best Known Documentary Wedding Photography & Videography Team

We are documentary style wedding photographers & videographers based in Yorkshire, UK.

The wedding photography of York Place Studios has gained an international following and we travel all across the UK and worldwide to capture unique and creative weddings for our incredible couples, but Yorkshire remains our home and favourite place to photograph & film.

At York Place we believe that your wedding should be all about you - your style, your personalities and your photographs and film should reflect that - creating something new every time and embracing the spontaneity, individuality and unique relationships that make your wedding day such an extraordinary event.

Thank you! (Doesn’t even cut it!) These are just exceptional. They are better than we could even dream of! You’ve well and truly captured our day, our emotions and our hearts in these. We stayed up late last night to look at them all and loved each and every one! We laughed, and cried at how perfect they are. You’ve caught the memories that we wouldn’t have been around to see, for that we are truly grateful. Your work is just impeccable and we couldn’t thank you enough.

How we work
In many ways our "wedding photography" is not really about weddings at all. Our work is really a celebration of people; of the individual quirks, traits and qualities that make you, your family and friends who you really are. Your wedding day is perhaps the one day in your life where everyone you know and love gathers in the same place at the same time, so what better occasion to capture the intricacies of relationships, the dynamics of a community on such a joyous day and the laughs, banter, in-jokes and intimacy of old friends coming together to celebrate a shared joy.
As documentary style photographers we don't ask our couples to adopt false poses or pretend to be anything they're not; we celebrate spontaneity and simply use creative observation and skilled compositon to capture stories right there in the moment - the way they truly felt to be there. We don't just capture the big set-piece events of your wedding, we also look between the obvious moments to explore the subtleties of relationships and the connections that exist within the frame. Our goal is to capture photographs more powerful and expressive than anything we could artificially staged so that when you flick through your wedding album you are fully immersed back in that incredible moment each and every time.
We believe that wedding films should be a celebration not just of your marriage but of you as a couple and as a family. We want our films to show more than just the act of getting married - we want to show your relationship with your friends, we want to capture the excitement of the dance floor, the laughs, joy and unpredictable craziness that finds its way into every wedding day. We'll of course capture the more formal aspects but to us it's equally important to capture the experience. We don't make romance films, we make celebration films - films that record not just your wedding but a time in your lives and the lives of all your family and friends.
We don't believe that your day should be spent acting and performing for the camera. We don't want you to adopt a false grin or worry about the background, we want you to be completely immersed in the rather more important act of enjoying your wedding day. So don't pose, forget about the camera and let us creatively capture this extraordinary day in your lives in a way that brings back the real memories: fun, stylish and positively dripping with joy.

"Is This Something?" The Photography Book Written in Yorkshire and Selling Worldwide
In 2023 we released our first book on the topic of documentary photography entitled "Is This Something?"
"Is This Something?" is a photography workshop in book form, using the structure of a wedding day to take the reader through every aspect of documentary photography from concept and philosophies right through from getting ready to ceremony to reception, dancefloor and ultimate goals. Though every aspect of a wedding is covered the book centres around the hidden beats - the moments where it appears that nothing in particular is going on and yet so many stories can be found - our favourite moments to uncover and capture.
We've been humbled by the response from the photographic community, with leading documentary photography oraganisation "This Is Reportage" proclaiming it as "The ultimate book on our craft" and copies selling fast all over the world, from the USA to Singapore, Israel, Mexico and all across Europe.

 They captured all the moments we missed, managed to catch the feeling of the day, and to catch a true sense of all our friends and family. Every time we look at our photos, we notice something different, remember something different, the photos really do tell the story of our day just the way we wanted them to! They are perfect!

Thank you so much Dom & Liam! We really could not be happier with our photos! Thank you for creating the best collection of memories for us!!

Wedding at The Craven Arms, Appletreewick, North Yorkshire
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
