Storytelling Wedding Photographer | Brian Wheatley in Dudley
I know good imagery when I see it and I pride myself on being able to create my own as a Wedding Photographer. This is quite frankly the best job in the world. Devoted to producing beautiful and meaningful natural photos or engaging and memorable videos. So I'm proud to announce that I'm now offering cherished Wedding Photography to Midlands and local Dudley wedding couples. A dedicated, experienced and confident professional photographer for your big day, who can re-create those passionate and memorable moments that last a lifetime and beyond.
Having been filming amazing weddings since 2006 I've literally worked with hundreds of brides and grooms. As well as alongside many wonderful Midlands Wedding Photographers in and around Dudley. So now I've decided to offer my creative skills as a Wedding Photographer. As well as to continue to provide a fantastic videography service as a cornerstone of my business. I'm offering beautiful photographic packages or combined photo and video coverage of your day.
So I'm a videographer you'll be saying? Yes - but for many years I've also provided a photography service to the corporate industry. Offering photography to businesses, conferences and events, venues, property and public relations photos.
Wedding photography is a combination of portrait, fashion, journalistic, interior, architectural and even food photography. So when looking for a professional photographer you need someone who can combine these skills. Think on their feet. And are flexible enough to cope with anything that is thrown at them on the day.
So you're in good hands if you choose me, with my years of experience working in the design industry. Visit www.mmmtv.co.uk/midlands-conference-event-photographer for my corporate portfolio.
I'm also a party photographer where I can create videos and take perfect, fun and natural pictures of people enjoying themselves.
What's my style of Photography?
My background as a graphic designer, video producer and photographer is reflected in my style of wedding photography. At a wedding, I focus on people, details and moments of the day. I love to create beautiful images that capture the day's story in a creative documentary style or otherwise known as reportage. Some people would call it photojournalistic. Making use of natural light and the local environment I love to capture couples and guests in relaxed ways that reflect the emotions of the day.
Lots of fun and natural candid photos would be taken. But also the traditional family shots that look great in an album or wall art. This is where I take control of the wedding guests and create the results that you want and expect.
Different people often require alternative posing techniques and there's an art to creating the perfect positioning of couples. The shape of the dress. The colours of the materials and flowers. How they blend or contrast with subtle skin tones, lighting and the natural surroundings. How the couple interacts with each other and reflects genuine emotions. It's not just point-and-shoot with me. So make sure you allow plenty of time for your wedding photoshoot!
What do I cover?
My coverage for pure photography at weddings or an event would start with the bridal preparations. Relaxed, friendly and natural photography of you and your bridesmaids and family getting ready. With images of your wedding dress, perfume and jewellery as well as flowers and shoes. Great Wedding Photographers know how to arrange these items so they look stunning when photographed.
Let’s end the Bridal preparations with some amazing shots of you in your dress holding your bouquet. What about some photos of you and your bridesmaids cracking open a bottle of champagne? And maybe a big reveal to loved ones on your last day of being a single person. Fun and romance are what a wedding day is all about. It’s my job to create fantastic memories for you to cherish for years to come.
Moving on with the day I cover the arrivals with relaxed group shots of close family and images of the groom with his best man and ushers. Then meeting the bride as she arrives with her bridesmaids for photos before she walks down the aisle.
Awesome coverage of you getting hitched and then on to the Photo Call. A mixture of organised groups as well as candid relaxed portraits of people enjoying the big day. Then I take you away from the crowds of adoring family and friends for some intimate and romantic location imagery of the two of you. I may even use my drone to get some dynamic overhead shots. Not many photographers offer this service because of the restrictions and laws regarding drone flying. But I am a qualified and licensed sub 250g drone operator. More information on drones can be found here on my corporate website.
Then I cover the wedding reception room with close-ups of the beautiful cake, table decorations and favors. Maybe a mock-cake-cutting photo whilst you are being shown the room by the wedding planners. Then I'd be capturing special photos of guests as they enter the room to find their seats. Followed by the Bride and Groom making their big entrance.
Of course, your Photographer should capture the speeches, cake cutting, and the first dance. With wonderful portraits of the speech makers and your guests listening and enjoying the amusing stories about the bride and groom.
If you have a specific itinerary for the day I could be flexible but this may mean I have to charge slightly differently for my time.
From start to finish I aim to provide you with stunning and emotional photography that you will simply adore.
What do you get?
At the moment I'm only offering the final hi-res images on a USB drive within a styled box and on an online gallery. If you require a designed wedding album there will be a charge depending on the photo album that you choose. I'm currently investigating album suppliers.
You'd receive well over 200 photographs and upwards! You would also share the copyright to these great pictures to print off yourself.
Most images generally require some light editing. Even if that's applying a specific type of look that reflects the mood of the day or you can choose your own style which is called a LUT. Photographers have many different styles and can offer hundreds of different looks.
NO-OBLIGATION PRE-WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT!
In your search for suppliers, it can be difficult to find a wedding photographer you feel you can trust, especially as there are so many styles to choose from. So that’s why I’m offering couples who are interested in my photography collection a PRE-WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT.
This would be held outdoors in maybe your favourite park or country walk or even at your wedding venue itself. Maybe spend a casual hour around Dudley Priory or Himley Park posing for some natural or fun portraits. Here’s a link to some wonderful wedding venues in and around Dudley.
This way we can get to know each other. And you can check out whether my style of photography would suit you on your wedding day story. There’s no commitment to book me for your wedding day. All images would be supplied via an online gallery that you can download to your pc. What a great way to gain confidence in my abilities and see if we gel.
*NB This is only for wedding photography packages only and is not available for wedding videography packages.
PHOTOSHOOT LOCATIONS IN AND AROUND DUDLEY
Dudley has a rich heritage of being the heart of the Black Country. With some amazing historical sites such as Dudley Zoo and the Priory Ruins. Many of these buildings are still used today for hosting wedding day ceremonies or wedding receptions. Let's focus on a few of my favorites for the best photos and stunning videos.
Take the Priory Ruins near the town center. This is a fantastic place for a professional to take couples for some groups or intimate couple shots. Especially as it’s right next to Dudley Registry Office. A fabulous building that hosts many weddings throughout the year.
Himley Park is the home of Himley Hall, the principal home of Humble Ward who was the son of the jeweller to the court of King Charles I. A photogenic Palladian Moated Manor House where you can get hitched and enjoy the rich history of the building and Himley Park grounds. A beautiful place for Photography and tells a wonderful story of its own history.
Looking for a secluded, intimate venue, zoom in on Blakelands Country House. Located in Bobbington in the South Staffordshire countryside, this building dates back to 1722. Surrounded by walled gardens, paddocks, and orchards. It even has its own fishing lake. Ideal for fantastic photo shoots.
Dudley and its surrounding areas such as Stourbridge, Sedgley and Kidderminster have a wealth of popular venues for couples to choose from. Hagley Hall. The ancestral home of the Lyttelton family. Built by George, who was for a time Chancellor of the Exchequer. Next to St John the Baptist Church. Perfect for both photos and videos.
Also in Stourbridge, close to Kinver, is Dunsley Hall. A beautiful venue where I love working at.
The other side of Dudley is Wolverhampton. So many flash places to get hitched, such as The Molineux. Here you can hold your reception and speeches. And I’ve worked at many weddings in other places, such as Pendrell Hall or Patshull Park Hotel.
So, if you’re getting married near me in Dudley, Kingswinford, Kinver, Wombourne, Stourbridge or Wolverhampton and are interested in having it photographed or filmed, give this Dudley Wedding Photographer and Videographer a call to discuss how I would cover your wonderful wedding day.
