There is an array of different styles of photographers and I believe it’s enormously important that when you cherry-pick your photographer, you should have complete faith that the style and the vibe of work they do, fit in with what you want. That’s not to say a photographer won’t modify their style at times, but ultimately, a photographer’s personality can’t help but shine through in their work. People say that I have a style, but I just try and shoot with honesty and search for that sense of feeling so that images can pop and come alive. When you see an image, you want to remember what had just happened or what someone had just said. I’ve developed this through hard work, patience and serendipity.
My aim with every wedding I do is to capture ‘alastingshot’, that will allow you to re-live that moment in time, from my very privileged and unique point of view. It’s a very colourful, relaxed and authentic style. I try to keep it simple and have some fun. I try to blend in, chat with family and friends, carry your shoes or sort your tie when it gets a bit hectic.
I do this purely for the love of love, and the freedom to photograph.
I’m Kevin Barrett, I’m going to avoid a long boi here and just give you good bits:
I was born and raised in the Garden of England, in a small town called Ashford (aka ‘Trashford“), Kent.
I spent my pre-teens days growing up, playing football and curbsy until the sunset.
Spotty and nieve I joined the British Army in the early ‘noughties‘ to be an aircraft engineer.
I now teach people to fly helicopters!
I spent a few years eating German sausages and drinking beer out of steins missing the opportunity to learn another language.
I Moved up north on ’09, to become an adopted Yorkshireman where I fortuitously met my wife Jo and settled in the city of York (hence the York Wedding Photographer label).
I have a crazy mini Schnauzer cross Jack Rusell called Billy.
I annoy my wife by fidgeting, making random strange noises, making her jump and never finishing my… sentences.
I’m a very proud father to two children and a lucky husband to my wife, Jo. We married in 2013 and know first-hand how important it is to find the right photographer.
I aim to take every care to capture the emotion of your special day, from my very privileged and unique point of view. Capturing the special moments which otherwise may be missed, and creating alastingshot for you to revisit time and time again.
So, why not get in touch!?
