Wedding Photography Leicestershire

Are you just engaged and planning your wedding day?  Congratulations!  How exciting…

Are you looking for wedding photography in Leicestershire?  Take a look at some highlight wedding images below.

The lovely Liz and Dan were married at St Peter’s Church at Whetstone, followed by a wedding reception at the Hinckley Island Hotel.   I will remember the date of their wedding always – it was also my daughter’s 16th birthday – of course I did check with my daughter when I first received an enquiry for this date, and had the ok to photograph Liz and Dan on their special day.

The weather was absolutely perfect for their very special day.  The sun shone on this adorable couple all day long –  a beautifully perfect Spring day.   We had great fun with Liz, Dan and their bridesmaids and groomsmen after their wedding breakfast, when we went outside to enjoy the early evening sunshine and took some relaxed, candid photographs with Mr and Mrs Nash and the gang.  I always find that some of my best photographs are taken later in the day.  Once the formalities are over, food has been eaten, speeches done and everyone can start to truly relax and start to properly celebrate.  I always take this opportunity to get back outside after the wedding breakfast and really capture everyone at their most relaxed.  It’s absolutely worth doing these shots and my favourite part of the day.

It was also Liz and Dan’s choice not to have a first dance, but to invite all the guests up on the dance floor to join them for a fun dance all together.  Great idea.  Especially if you’re not too keen not he spotlight.   I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to follow protocol on your wedding day.  You should do what you want to do, and not feel pressured to follow the herd.  Make the day about you and who you are as a couple.  Be individual and celebrate in your own style.

If you are looking for your wedding photographer in Leicestershire, you are most welcome to call me on 01455 233224 to arrange a mutually convenient day / time to discuss your wedding photography.   Alternatively you can email me at info@lesleybee.co.uk for further details.

I am only booking in a limited number of weddings in 2015 as I will be focussing on my portrait photography moving forward.

Wishing you many happy days Mr and Mrs Nash – xxx

Newly born Baby Photography Leicestershire

Are you expecting a baby or have you just hatched? Would you like to capture these precious early days with a newborn baby photography session? These very early days go by so quickly, and it’s so important to capture your newborn baby in photographs, so that you can treasure these moments forever.
I offer newborn baby photography sessions in the studio or in the comfort of your own home. A studio photography session for your newborn is £60 and includes a complimentary 10×8 print. Or, if you prefer to stay at home and have me visit you there, you can book this option. A newborn baby photography session at your home is £95 in Leicestershire. Again, this session includes a 10×8 complimentary print.

The recommended age for your newborn photography session is under 14 days old. This is when your baby will be just perfect for those gorgeous sleep photographs and this ‘just fed’ milky smiles. However, the session takes up to 2 hours, sometimes longer, so that I can work around you and your baby. Often we have to stop for feeding, changing and cuddles.

If you are considering a newborn baby photography session, take a look at these ‘just hatched’ beautiful babies and call me today on 01455 233224.

Wedding Photography Leicestershire

Are you looking for wedding photography in Leicestershire?  Take a look at some highlight wedding photography images from a recent wedding in August.  Amy and Dave were married in August at their local church in Sapcote, followed by a proper ‘party’ at Stanton Lake.  Now this was a wedding that had noise, fun, laughter and madness all day long.  Amy and Dave are childhood sweethearts who have been together for 11 years, but have also lived opposite each other in the same street almost all of their lives.  Both come from very large families…  thus the need for 23 members in their bridal party.  Yes, I said 23!

I have photographed Amy’s sisters wedding a couple of years ago and it was a real honour to be asked to photograph Amy and Dave’s special day too.  Their wedding day was a day whereby you could definitely feel the love in the room.  I was made to feel so very welcome at this celebration and enjoyed every single minute of the day.  Only 2 more sisters to go!  Let’s hope I get the gigs…  Enjoy these fantastic, fun, relaxed shots of a truly lovely wedding.

Amy and Dave have the most adorable Chocolate Labrador called George, who had his own dickey bow for the morning preparations.  Unfortunately he wasn’t allowed to come to the wedding reception due to his love of water.  They were concerned he would spend most of the day swimming in the lake at Stanton Lakes.  But he was a truly handsome and smart boy.

If you are getting married in Leicestershire and have yet to find your perfect wedding photographer, please do give me a call on 01455 233224 to discuss your wedding day photography requirements…  I am happy to meet you for an informal chat about your wedding day.

Wedding Photography Warwick House

I haven’t written any blogs about wedding photography for a long time.  So here goes… I am going to feature a few Leicestershire and Warwickshire weddings I have covered this year.

Aimee and James were married at the beautiful Warwick House.  It’s a venue I haven’t photographed at before, but it’s a very pretty wedding venue in a perfect setting.  It’s also quite a small venue which is perfect if you would like to book a hotel that will be exclusively yours for the day.   The bridal suite is especially pretty and there are lots of lovely areas in and around the hotel to capture some great wedding photographs.  Aimee and James are a very quiet, low key couple but they were very easy to work with. I knew we would get on well as soon as I met them. Aimee had the support of 4 lovely, helpful bridesmaids and we were very, very lucky with the weather on the day.  A few showers we managed to dodge were the only hiccups we had on a truly beautiful wedding day.  If you are getting married at Warwick House, please don’t hesitate to call me to discuss your wedding photography.  If you haven’t visited this lovely venue yet, it might be worth contacting them and having a look around.  Warwick House is located quite close to Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwick.

Family Photography Leicestershire

Are you thinking about booking a portrait photographer?  Do want natural, very relaxed, fun photographs of you and your family?  If this is the case, I could be the lady for you?  I very much love to photograph families on location.  I find that children have far more fun being photographed outdoors where they can run free.  Studio photography is sometimes a little restrictive, especially if your children are a little lively.    Often parents can become a little tense if their children are not playing ball during a studio session.  However, allowing your children the space and freedom to run around whilst I photograph them, will inevitably lead to photographs similar to these examples shown here.  And just as important – you will enjoy the photo shoot and not get stressed or unhappy if your children don’t play by the rules in a studio environment.

I often run 45 minute ‘mini’ sessions at Burbage Common in Leicestershire.  However if you would like to book a ‘one off’ photography session, I can meet you at your favourite park, woods, or even come and photograph you in your garden at home.

Please call me on 01455 233224 to discuss a photography session and I will chat to you about locations, what to wear etc.

Photography should not be tense and unexciting, it should be fun, relaxed and a pleasant experience for everyone.  Call me – Lesley Bee today on 01455 233224.
