Documentary Wedding Photographer  |  Yorkshire Wedding Photographer  |  Hull Wedding Photographer

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown we hadn’t ventured outside for close to three weeks. Like so many we had reached a point of desperately needing to step out and take in some fresh air.

Like everyone the past few weeks has been a real challenge, and with Blake being autistic we were unsure how he would deal with the situation. Of course he has wondered why there’s no school, why he can’t see his friends, where his grandparents are, or even why he cannot go outside. Despite all of this he has handled everything so well, and we couldn’t have asked for it to go better.

We finally decided it was time for us to take a walk somewhere, and no better place for that than the Hornsea beach. We are so fortunate that the beach is practically on our doorstep, and we’ve never taken that for granted. We headed down there for around 7pm and other than the occasional dog walker we saw no one. It was really nice to step out and feel that sea breeze, and of course I took my trusty Sony camera along. We knew we shouldn’t stay long, so after about thirty minutes we headed back home.

Photographers and The Lockdown Impact

It goes without saying that this is the most challenging time as a photographer for myself. Every wedding, event, party or sports event has now been cancelled right into August, with a lot rescheduling for next year. During the lockdown I decided to use the time wisely, so I felt it was important to continue my photography education by joining online workshops, photographer support groups and even honing my editing skills. We will eventually come out of this lockdown, and when we do I feel I will ready to go again.

Rescheduling your Wedding or Event

If you need to reschedule your wedding or event please do get in touch. We are not charging extra for changing any dates. 2021 is getting close to being fully booked. I joined a group of photographers who are all willing to help each other through these unprecedented times, so if a date is unavailable I can reach out to another photographer and vice versa.

A Big THANK YOU to the NHS and Key Workers

It goes without saying that my family and I consider all NHS and key workers as heroes right now, and making it a point to clap every Thursday. I personally have family who work in the NHS, so I have a little understanding of the sheer pressure you are all under.

If you are an NHS or key worker and have a wedding or event coming up in the future please get in touch, as we are offering discounts to the heroes 🙂
