Recent wedding photo (sort of)
09 December 2013
A friend and I shot a 25th wedding anniversary renewal of vows on Saturday, and here's a couple of the photos of the happy couple. We had access to the wedding album from 25 years ago and were trying to recreate some of the couple's favourite wedding photos - Even using the exact same location as the previous pictures!

Hello again everyone! I've had a great week of meeting new wedding clients for the 2014 and 2015 wedding seasons and now things are quietening down for the winter I'll be making a few changes to the website so stay tuned! I'm adding three further "featured weddings" to the gallery bringing the total number to 12! I'm also going to be changing the images within my portfolio to keep things up to date. When all the changes are complete, there will be close to 900 images on my wedding photography website for potential clients to look through! Stay tuned!

New testimonial added
31 October 2013
I received a wonderful testimonial this morning from a couple whose wedding I photographed back in June of this year.
"Martin and I would like to thank you for capturing our special day so well with your wonderful photographs. You made everyone feel very comfortable and helped to make our enjoyable day very memorable. The photographs are stunning and really show the wonderful story of our day. We will definitely be recommending you to others! Jessica & Martin Bailiss"

Here's a photo from Saturday's wedding
14 October 2013
I had a great time photographing Saturday's wedding at Manor Hill House
with John and Trevor. Unfortunately it rained for all of 15 minutes, so we seized the opportunity to dash outside and take some photos! This is the first one I've edited, but stay tuned - more are coming!
A quick update
10 October 2013
Have finally managed to take a few days off which has been wonderful! I've been meeting a lot of new clients lately and getting booked up for the 2014 wedding season as far forwards as the end of September! I'm looking forward to Saturday's wedding, just hope the rain stays away! Stay tuned over the weekend and look out for some new wedding photos.
New testimonials page added
02 October 2013
I have added a page called "testimonials and kind words" to the website to allow you to see what people really think of me! It's still a work in progress as I haven't received all of the feedback yet, but if you want to take a look, click here
Another "featured wedding" added to the site!

New "Featured Wedding" added to the website!
24 September 2013
I have a couple of weeks off between weddings so I'm adding more content to the website.
I am redoing my portfolio to show off the very best of my most recent work, and doubling
the number of featured weddings in the gallery to give you the best possible idea of my style of work! To make a start I've added 60 photographs from the wedding of Fiona and James! You can find your way to the new gallery by clicking here
or on the image below!
My new demo wedding album is here!
24 September 2013
A couple of weeks ago I ordered a new demo wedding album to show to potential clients and the good news is - It arrived this morning. The better news is that it looks absolutely incredible! In the next week I am changing my packages to give clients better value for money, by adding to my packages whilst at the same time reducing the prices of them!
The album on display here is part of my 30x30cm Digital Wedding Album package which will be a mere £1300 (including VAT) and
includes the matching presentation case you see below!
Guests taking photos...
17 September 2013
This is a two pronged blog post!
First of all, I'd like to say that whilst there are many photographers who dislike guests taking photos at genuine photo opportunities, I'm definitely not one of them - in fact I welcome guests taking their own photos!
And secondly - I really like this image from a recent wedding at Stanbrook Abbey,

19 August 2013
Over the 16th and 17th of August I shot a two day wedding - An Indian wedding on Friday, and a civil ceremony on the Saturday. I love shooting Indian weddings, the enormous range of colours on show and the incredible details in the clothing make for wonderful photographs, and it's hard not to have a good time with the on-going party atmosphere!
Here's a few photos from the two days, although I imaging I'll be posting many more on here once I've started properly editing them. Nisha and Liam had their Indian ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham
, Bromsgrove, and had their civil ceremony at the amazing Birtsmorton Court
in the Worcestershire countryside.
19 August 2013
It's the height of the wedding season and as such I'm editing wedding photos for 14 hours a day, but I can still find the time to share some recent wedding photos on here! Here's a couple from the wedding of Naomi and James, who got married and had their reception at The Birche
in Shelsley Beauchamp, Worcestershire.
A Signature photo in every sense of the word.
12 August 2013
I've had a manic weekend, having shot two full weddings in two days - some 23 hours of wedding photography in total! As always, I like to display a photo from my most recent wedding on here whilst I'm going through and editing the photos.
At Friday's wedding, unbeknownst to all but myself and a few members of the bride's family - The bride had booked Signature
(the Michael Jackson/Bhangra tribute act of Britain's Got Talent fame) to perform well, during the first dance as it turns out.
However this style of "first dance" photo is fast becoming one of my signature photos - I've used a flash behind the couple to provide back-lighting (helps the couple stand out from the dark background) but also to provide dramatic effect. More wedding pictures to come today and tomorrow so stay tuned!
An interesting new perspective
21 July 2013
This coming week I am lucky enough to be working for the Worcester International Festival for Young Singers (or Wifys for short, pronounced "why-fis" if you were wondering!)
Wifys is the UK's first-ever non-competitive international youth singing festival, and is host to 11 choirs from 10 different nations: Belgium, Poland, Spain, Czech Republic, Austria, Russia (x2), Hong Kong, Germany, Lithuania and the UK.
Saturday afternoon I was around Worcester city centre photographing the various choir's street performances, and Saturday evening I was high above the city centre, taking a group photo of all the participating choirs - from the roof the the cathedral!
I suffer badly with a fear of heights and needless to say it was a long way up. I really wish someone had told me beforehand though that the tower moves slightly in the wind!
Wifys are putting on a number of free concerts this week and having seen the choirs in action already, I can honestly say they are well worth watching, the performances were very moving. You can find out who is performing where and when at the link here
Engagement shoot photo!
14 July 2013
I decided to do my first pre-wedding/engagement shoot last week with John and Trevor who are getting married at Manor Hill House
on October 12th of this year. I had a great time taking the photos and I'm really looking forward to the civil ceremony!
05 July 2013
Back from my holidays and straight back into work - here's an image from my most recent wedding, taken in the lovely village of Hannington in Hampshire (between Basingstoke and Newbury.) Jessica and Martin were married at All Saints Church
with their reception at The Vine Inn
Congratulations Jessica and Martin!
08 June 2013
I am in the office this week, replying to emails and editing wedding photos and so to keep with tradition, here's an image from my most recent wedding.
Congratulations Su and Neil!
Su and Neil were married at Hallow church
on Saturday 1st June 2013
31 May 2013
Well I'm back from my week's holiday and yesterday I returned from Falmouth - I was down there shooting a wedding, and here's a photo! The day started off with a lot of rain but it soon cleared and we were blessed with wonderful wedding weather, bright blue skies and a cool breeze. Congratulations on your wedding, Fiona and James.
Fiona and James were married at Saint Stythians
church, followed by a photo shoot at Pendennis Point (a local beauty spot just below Pendennis Castle
) and had their reception at The Princess Pavillion, falmouth
I'll see you in a week!
27 May 2013
Just to let everyone know, I'm driving down to Falmouth tomorrow for a wedding and I'll be back on Thursday evening for another wedding I have locally on Saturday. I'll get back to any emails on Friday 31st and will maybe post a picture or two!
Another happy customer!
12 May 2013
Waking up to emails like this makes it all worth while;
"Just got back from Peru yesterday so we are jet lagged, but we managed to see photos yesterday on the discs, and they are very natural and brilliant... Thank you again"
Acceptance into the Wedding Photojournalist Association
27 April 2013
Today I received news that I have been accepted into the Wedding Photojournalist Association.
Needless to say I'm very happy, and a little shocked as the selection criteria is so tough! Acceptance into the WPJA for me serves to confirm the high standard of my work - I love the work I'm currently sending to my clients, and official recognition of that is awesome!
Here's a cutting from their website:
"The Wedding Photojournalist Association grants membership to only the most talented professional wedding photographers in the industry - photographers who focus on using their photography skills and excel at capturing moments and documenting weddings."

I've had a spring clean!
22 April 2013
As Chase Jarvis once said "promises are nothing, portfolios are everything
I was happy with the wedding photography portfolio that's graced my website for the past 3 months but I felt like it was time for a bit of a spring clean so to speak. As such, I've removed 40 of the images that were in my wedding portfolio and replaced them with many new ones. I've decided to use more images than previous, taking the total number of images in my portfolio from 48 to somewhere nearer to 80. Finally, I've re-sized the images slightly differently so they now appear sharper!
Someone asked me this week what my favourite photo was that I'd taken at a wedding, and truth be told it's impossible for me to pick only one. Furthermore my favourite wedding photo tends to change week on week, but here's three that stand out to me at the moment:
First wedding shoot of the year
31 March 2013
After a few non-topical blog posts lately you'll be pleased to hear that I'm back with a wedding related one, with a picture from my first wedding shoot of the season. I was assisting a friend with this wedding so I didn't take as many pictures as I normally would (as I wasn't the main photographer) but I had a fantastic time, met some wonderful people and took some great images... despite it being only one degree above freezing!

I would just like to take the time to say a massive thank you to all who voted for me in Nikon's photographic competition recently. The good news is I won and I shall be receiving my prize from Nikon soon. Don't forget though, one of the people who voted will still win a brand new camera from Nikon!
Please vote for me!
02 March 2013
I recently heard the news that I have been put through to the final 5 in a Nikon photographic competition, and to win I require public votes for my image. If you could spare me 30 seconds of your time to vote for my image I would appreciate it! All you need to do to help is click on the image below which will open the competition website. Find my image (the second one) and click "vote for this photo" - That's all there is to it. If you do vote you yourself stand a chance of winning a Nikon Coolpix S9300 camera too!
Recommended Supplier at Deer Park Hall - Worcestershire
17 January 2013
I received a phone call today from one of my favourite wedding venues - Deer Park Hall, letting me know that they would like to use me as one of their recommended suppliers. One of my images is being used in a demo album for wedding clients to look at which is shown below. Potential customers are able to see my work and recieve information and my details. Talking of which, I have a new business email address - I had to stop using my old one as it was hacked into and sadly I've not been able to retrieve the account. My new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Clicking on the image below will open up Deer Park Hall's website
New Lee Webb Photography facebook page specifically for wedding photography
16 January 2013
I have finally found the time to set up a Lee Webb Photography facebook page, specifically designed for wedding clients. Sure it's not 100% finished but neither is the website you're looking at right now, but as one gets finished the other will to. The main benefit for the time being is that iPad, iPhone and smart phone users can view my portfolio on the facebook page as I'm still encountering some compatibility issues with the main site.
