Yorkshire Wedding Photographer
Hello Everybody. I hope you are all keeping well and observing the governments advice to stay in and protect everybody? In these extraordinary times of which we have never encountered family gatherings, friends and expected celebrations have never been so in the forefront of our minds. Having being isolated from my family and friends for over 3 weeks I am relying on saying hello to everyone on WhatsApp video and I am being old school and calling people on a telephone. I know… strange times! I have downloaded the below image from https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2016/03/16/zoom-teleconferencing-411/ which reminds me of the first telephone my family had in the mid-1970s.
If you have read my past post concerning social media, you’ll see that after the New Year in 2020 I had a purge and deleted most of it except for WordPress and Twitter. I have to admit that my mind is already clearer and I am not missing the social media apps at all, not even now in lockdown. It has enabled me to concentrate on my website and update it regularly and spend some time on the SEO of it too, which has seen it rise thankfully on the natural Google listings. I am happy to keep Twitter for me as a personal account and also keep WordPress updated too. The other things I really don’t miss! Whether it will be a good business decision will have to wait to be seen but I am confident in my ability as a fantastic wedding photographer and confident that people will see the value for money in my pricing when they consider what the other peripheral suppliers are charging in comparison.
The coronavirus has touched everyone throughout the UK and Europe and I send my best wishes to everybody who has lost a loved one. The importance of a talented photographer who has passion and cares is increasingly evident to me as I have seen people turn to their memories and post photos of grandparents, friends, family all on happy occasions such as weddings when they looked their best. Trusting a photographer to be natural with you and capturing that is key so you are paying for not only your wedding photographer to care, you are paying for skill, experience, personality and reliability. Now more than ever the wedding industry needs help and self-employed people such as me really need some moral and financial support to get through this. I hope that is forthcoming for all suppliers in the next month. For me, I am staying put! I’m a stubborn Yorkshireman and won’t let this beat me or my photography business which I have built up over decades and travelled throughout Europe and the UK putting in some hard miles and lots of blood, sweat and tears.
I am currently taking bookings for 2020, 2021 and 2022 with a low booking fee of £25 to secure my services for your date. The remaining £175 of my usual booking fee can be paid by the end of October 2020. With discounts for NHS and Care staff, early booking discounts and special offers please look at my website and get in touch as now has never been a better time to plan a wedding celebration and look forward to the days when your family can all get together with smiles on their faces.
Stay safe and I send my best wishes to everyone reading this. See you soon!
