Lake District Wedding Photography

Rachel & Nathan’s Wedding at The Grange Hotel

Photographing a wedding in the beautiful Lake District is always special, the scenery and venues are just fantastic.

The Grange Hotel with its views over the Bay and the south lakes is such a wonderful location for a wedding and its close by to the bay for us to grab some amazing photographs in the evening.

Rachel & Nathan are just the most chilled out couple… EVER but boy this wedding was just crazy but crazy in a good way. We just had such a laugh.

The ceremony took place at a church in the Village of Grange, again with amazing views

The weather was gorgeous and as the guests chatted with each other whilst enjoying champagne & nibbles we grabbed those all important photos with the new Mr & Mrs Crane around the grounds.

The speeches where a rollercoaster of emotions with tears and laughter being interrupted by singing waiters ending in a crazy conga (i think every wedding needs a good conga:) )

A few photos on the station as the sun set & it was time to party and boy do these guys know how to party.

Our goal as wedding photographers is to create documentary photographs as unobtrusively as possible and also truly amazing photographs of the couple and we are so glad that Nathan & Rachel chose us as their Lake district wedding photographers.

Here are a selection of our fave images, we hope you love the too…. D&Jxx

Looking Back… 2013 Review

Stanbury Photography 2013 Review

Well as we come to the close of 2013 its at this time Jane & I look back at the year…. and what a year 2013 has been, so many new experiences, new venues & new friends. Its only as we were putting this review together that we realised just how GOOD 2013 had been (we thought it would have been quiet but not so)and this review is only a small selection of behind the scenes & weddings if we included our portrait & fashion shoots this post would be huge, so grab yourself a cup of tea, get comfy as here is a small insight into our year……
2013 was the year that our workshops to help improve other photographers took off and we started really on a high with Photo Training Overseas in Lanzarote with photographers joining us from the UK & Ireland

We also managed an amazing early morning shoot in the Lanzarote hills with a Royal Ballet trained Dancer Paris for her portfolio Over 2013 we were asked to provide more seminars & training with our good friends and worlds largest wedding album company Graphistudio of Italy, who asked us to do a series of seminars on their display stand at Europe’s largest photography trade show And workshops for the top Pro Camera company Hasselblad Cameras at Chateaux Impeny in the midlands & the first ever Shoot London (ShootLDN) aimed at the fashion & top end photography world Over The last twelve months we have also presented photography workshops & seminars in The South West, various locations in London & a great workshop in Northern Ireland we also met some amazing photographers and made many new friends around the UK & Ireland. 2013 was also a good year for awards, most notably Regional winner of the Wedding Album of the Year & bronze award for UK wedding Album of the Year, along with Gold awards for our portraiture, weddings & service in general. Also I was nominated in the prestigious Hasselblad Masters as the only UK photographer in the wedding section, this is a world wide competition and Masters status has been awarded to some of the most famous photographers in the world But all what we have achieved in 2013 and what we hope to achieve in 2014 would not be possible without YOU, our fabulous clients. We have had one of the best years ever, we have laughed with you, cried with you and witnessed your lives change forever and we are so proud that you chose us to capture the memories that you will hold forever…. we really do have the best job in the world. Here is a very small insight into our 2013 wedding journey, we could have posted 10 times as many images but the post would be huge so after much thought here is a few of our fave images of 2013…….

So that was a small look at 2013 a huge thank you to you our Bride & Grooms, our family portraits, our fashion and commercial clients, our actors, our babies…. our friends. We are a family run business and the business is our family and thats how we want to stay, our joy is seeing the joy & emotion in peoples faces as they see their images, their memories. This has been our 18th Year in business and we have seen many changes but one thing has always stayed the same… our passion for photography, it really is our life. So heres to 2014 we have so many exciting things to share with you as our journey continues with new couples who’s lives will change, new stories to tell, new smiles and new adventures. All that is left is to say have a Happy Christmas & A Prosperous New Year. All our love David,Jane,Kayla,Shanna & Cavan AKA ‘The Stanburys’ xxxxx

LOOKING BACK…… 2012

Well its that time of year when we all start to look back over the past 12 months & look forward to what the new year will bring and Ok perhaps we have not quite finished 2012 as we still have 2 wedding to go but what a year 2012 has been both personally & with the business. I have to say the WHOLE year has been fantastic & YOU our customers are what have made it all possible (sounds cheesy but its true) and below are a very small collection of images that made 2012 a year to remember……

I have to start with the Awards that we won this year. The year started with the North West Pro Photography awards where I received The MPA Overall Master Photographer of the Year, Portrait Photographer of the Year and we also won Wedding Album of the Year & numerous Gold Awards for our images. Then it was off to ‘the big one’ the National Professional Photography Awards Held in Newcastle and we returned with 3 National Awards, the Regional & Overall winner Mario Accerboni 3 from 1 Wedding Photographer of the Year, Winner UK Portrait of an adult & for us the big one, the UK Wedding Album of the Year. This was also the year that behind the scenes I decided to aim for an Associate Level within the Master Photographers Association & the British Institute of Professional Photography and after 6 months hard work I gained the prestigious letters AMPA,ABIPP after my name. A very proud moment as this is judged on not only the high quality of your photography but also the presentation, the thought process behind the images and your business & you as a photographer.

In March I was honored to be asked by the worlds largest wedding album supplier to present a talk on our photography & business at Focus On Imaging 2012 the UK’s largest trade show at the NEC in Birmingham, later in the year the Master Photographers Association invited me to show a live studio shoot to promote studio photography & workflow. The friends & fellow photographers that both Jane & I met at these events and the laughter will stay with us forever, a huge thank you to all who came along to both.

The Highpoint of the year has to be our Bride & Grooms and the fantastic weddings we have shot all over the UK, the portrait clients with their kids & families infact ALL of our customers we have had the pleasure to meet this year as without you none of the above would be possible (well we wouldn’t have any images for a start) Both Jane & I have had some great moments on our travels & more to come. 2013 & 2014 is starting to book up with some fantastic weddings, we have been asked to present seminars about our style of photography all over the UK and invited as a tutor on the prestigious Photo Training Overseas course to be held in Lanzarotte at the end of January so it looks as though this fantastic photography journey we are on continues

So all that remains is for Both Jane & myself to wish ALL our customers old and new a very happy Christmas and here’s to a great 2013….. Cheers!!!! D&J xxxxx
