How do you describe your style?
Our photography style is fun, vibrant, and authentic. We are documentary photographers, and we try to show what a wedding day looks like from a guest's point of view. We ensure that our website showcases only real wedding day shots, no staged photoshoots. It's important for potential clients to envision what they'll get on their wedding day. We pride ourselves on capturing every moment, always photographing from two angles. We are inobtrusive, allowing couples to enjoy their wedding day fully rather than feeling as though they're in a photo shoot. To truly appreciate what a full wedding day looks like through our lens, clients are more than welcome to browse through an entire wedding album rather than just the select images on our website. Just get in touch.
What packages do you offer?
Our approach to wedding photography stems directly from our personal wedding experience. We understand that all you really want is a straightforward booking. Due to this, we have made our packages incredibly transparent, easy to understand and simple to customise to your special day. Our fees can be found in the 'Packages' section. We maintain a clear communication policy with our clients about our charges, ensuring there are no hidden surprises. https://www.storiesofido.com/packages/
What areas do you cover / Do you travel?
While we are based in Yorkshire, we're more than willing to travel the entire United Kingdom and even abroad to capture your big day. Please note there could be additional expenses for weddings located more than 50 miles from LS16. Rest assured, we will be upfront about these costs should you choose to engage our services. An overnight stay may also factor into the additional charges for far-away destinations. Our portfolio is broad and diverse, having covered weddings from the majestic castles of Scotland to the picturesque beaches of Cornwall - we love to travel!
Does every package include both of you?
Yes! As a married duo ourselves, we love the opportunity to capture the big moments of your wedding day from two distinct perspectives. Typically, Jon spends the morning with the groom while Mary accompanies the bride. Our clients often express their delight upon receiving their wedding albums, as they can witness what their partner was doing during pivotal moments, such as the bride getting into her dress. Furthermore, this dual perspective allows us to document significant moments like the bride's entrance from two angles. You can see not only your guests' reactions but also your partner's, capturing more of these unforgettable moments than a single photographer could provide. This unique offering is one of our most appealing features to couples.
Feeling uneasy about being in front of the camera or don't enjoy having your photo taken?
We consider ourselves the perfect photographers for those who typically shy away from the camera. We ensure never to put you in uncomfortable poses. Instead, our focus is on making the process fun as we capture those unforgettable wedding portraits. We utilise a series of prompts designed to help our couples relax, ultimately creating an enjoyable and stress-free photography experience for our couples.
Jon and Mary shot our wedding photos earlier this month and they are absolutely amazing photographers and people! Great communication from start to finish. We both don’t enjoy being photographed, but wanted something to remember the day and both of them made us feel so at ease throughout. The photos all came out wonderfully, we are incredibly grateful and happy to have booked them
Jon and Mary have been absolutely brilliant. They have done both our engagement and wedding photos. We thought our engagement photos were stunning, but the wedding photos have blown us away! They not only took amazing photos, but went the extra mile for us on our wedding day, including helping with the wedding dress and sorting out the groomsmen’s pinholes! Fantastic photographers but also fantastic people! We cannot thank them enough! Definitely book them!
Jon and Mary were the photographers for our April 2022 wedding at the Oakwood at Ryther in North Yorkshire. The moments they captured and the pictures they sent to us were amazing. They arrived and were so friendly and reassuring right from the off, Jon at the house where the Groom/groomsmen were getting ready and Mary at the venue where the Bride/bridesmaids. We therefore have fantastic photos of both groups getting ready. Jon was also key in ensuring that the men’s buttonholes were properly applied and they stayed in place all day. Since Mary and Jon are a duo we have photos of the ceremony from both looking up and down the aisle which makes for all angles of the couple and guests to be covered so we can really relive the moment when looking back at them. We were especially excited for the confetti photos as we had seen in their previous work and we were not disappointed. We had further group shots, which despite there being an awful lot of family members to sort out, was done with minimal fuss. Couples shots were then beautifully shot, capturing the feeling and emotions we were going through perfectly. Finally we had amazing shots of the wedding breakfast, speeches and dance floor captured in the evening, with us and our guests fully enjoying the moment. They were both not intrusive in the slightest and we didn’t even notice they were there for most of the time. Our sneak peaks gallery was sent to us within a couple of days, which meant we could upload the all important social media update using our professional pictures! We got to relive the whole day again with our families when looking through the full album which they delivered in just 6 weeks! We can’t recommend them highly enough if you are looking for a pair of lovely, down to earth photographers who capture your special day as it happens.
What can we say about Jon and Mary? Impeccable service delivered by two warm and friendly people who blended into our wedding day as well as any of the guests! We asked for ‘fly on the wall’ style photographs and video and that’s exactly what we got. Couldn’t recommend Stories of I Do more - get in touch, you won’t regret it!
Jon and Mary were our photographers for our wedding in October and what can we say, they were absolutely brilliant. Such lovely, wonderful,professional people. For a bride that hates having her photo taken they just put us at so much ease and made it feel so comfortable, they were just brilliant getting all the photos we wanted and so unintrusive that half the time you didn't know they were there. We have just got our photos back and they are just amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer, don't hesitate to book them for your special day. Thank you both so much for everything and for helping to make our day so truly perfect.
