Welcome to Ben Pollard wedding photographer in Derbyshire.
From my office at home in Derby there’s a regular thrill as I put my latest set of pictures together for my wedding clients. It’s a love. A love of seeing love. A constant battle to better myself. It’s never just turning up on the day of your wedding with a couple of Canon Cameras and wandering around taking some snaps. I class myself as a documentary style wedding photographer, I’ll take pictures of what’s there but I still like to get involved and create pictures; just a little, here and there, to make things pretty and to improve where I think there will be a benefit. Once I get home with them all I go through each picture making it as perfect as I can before I pass it on to you.
I live in Derby and mostly I mostly work in the Derbyshire area and have photographed weddings at a variety of venues such as Shottle Hall, Makeney Hall, Calke Abbey, Hassop Hall and Donnington Park Farm House Hotel but I’ll travel too. I’ve done weddings in Berwick on Tweed, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Newark, Sheffield, Cardiff, London and Hungary (yes Hungary the flat country in between Romania and Austria). I haven’t been to Cuba yet so if you’re getting married in Havana then yes please.
If you decide to book me I’ll make some promises. I’ll do my best to ensure that it’s your day and unless you want I won’t turn it into a fashion shoot. I won’t turn up in jeans and a t shirt (unless that’s how you want me). I’ll bring at least two cameras just in case one happens to stop working. And lastly I shan’t ask you to put on music by Jamie Cullum but if you do I’ll be very happy.
I am a Derbyshire wedding photographer, have two furry kids called Barney and Holly and a loving partner called Helen. If you would like to know more, or enquire about your wedding date please go to contact.
