Wedding Photography by Halo

In a sea of wedding photographers, you've found a fun, friendly, authentic team that makes amazing memories

Hello! We are Lisa & Mark. A down to earth pair of wedding photographers that love to photograph people. We are a team that has photographed a LOT of weddings. Lisa is a whirlwind of energy from Jarrow. Mark is Mr Orgainised and loves his gadgets. We both have fun creating amazing memories and can’t wait to plan your wedding photography with you.

Wedding Photography that starts your story

We understand you haven’t gotten married before (or it may have been a while). If you want help and advice leading up to the wedding & during, we are here for you. Lisa has fixed many a dress malfunction and Mark’s not to bad at buttonholes. All the things no one prepares you for, we are there to help. All with a laugh and a joke.

But don’t let our laid-back persona’s fool you. When the fun of your wedding is over we stick to our deadlines. Halo Photography will get your images and products to you when we say we will. We see your wedding as a beginning. Hoping that you would then consider us for your children’s photography, their christenings, first birthdays, proms & graduations… documenting your family events, for years to come.

Let Lisa & Mark guide you through your wedding day

We like to think that we might start the day as guests at your wedding and leave as part of the family. Everyone thinks we are a couple, but we aren’t. When you’ve worked together for 20 years you end each other’s sentences. Knowing what the other is planning to do before it happens. Be warned, we get on each other’s nerves too but rest assured its just banter. We are Yin & Yang but it adds to a team that wants you to enjoy your wedding day.
We won’t dictate what you have to do or alienate your guests. Your guests are there because you want to be surrounded by the people you love and that support you. We won’t keep you from them any more than is necessary to get the wedding photo’s you want. If you think of something you want to do on the spur of the moment then just let us know, we don’t mind going off on tangents.

Relaxed and informal North-East Wedding Photographer

Northumberland, Newcastle & the North-East of England is an amazing area to get married in. We are so grateful to be able to create our wedding photography at some of the best venues in the area. Every wedding is different, just as every bride & groom are unique. Halo Photography is just as happy taking relaxed and natural images as well as organised groups because they are really important to future generations. We don’t turn our nose up at either. Left to our own devices we will do a bit of both.

After your wedding, we’ll present an amazing set of photographs with a choice of complementing filters and some in Black & White. 

We regularly photograph wedding venues in Northumberland and the North-East such as Linden Hall, Doxford Hall, Newton Hall, Brinkburn Priory, Le Petit Chateau, Kirkley Hall, Eslington Villa & Beamish Hall.

Wedding Photography FAQ's

Most frequent questions and answers

Yes, we have an hourly rate service. We can’t photograph a wedding in an hour, we have tried however we attend for £100 per hour and we can book a minimum of 2hours. Then once you’ve viewed your photos you can purchase prints, canvases, digital images or even an Album from them. This service isn’t as good value for money but if you are having a small wedding or want to spread the cost its ideal. Call us for more details.

We ask for a £100 deposit to book your date and then we arrange to meet one month before your wedding to finalise details and at this point you pay the balance. 

Firstly, having your wedding photos taken isn’t an everyday occurrence. Part of our job is to guide you every step of the way, posing you and helping you produce a great expression. If you would like to get some practice in and get to know what it’s like, then we advise you to come to the studio and have a Pre-Wedding Shoot. It helps you get comfortable with us and we can see how you react in front of the camera. Secondly, everyone blinks on a few photos. We take loads of shots so don’t worry but it’s good that you’ve let us know. Some people are very good at predicting the shutter but as long as we know to look out for it, we can check to make sure we have the shot we want.

Getting ready is a big part of the day and we can start the day at the bride/groom’s house or both if the package you choose includes 2 photographers. 

By default, we put as much variety into your set of images as we can, but if you like B&W or funky colours, we can edit any of the photos to suit your tastes after the wedding. But if it’s the content of the photos you want in a different style then you need to let us know before the wedding. We normally mix staged groups with candid, relaxed shots so that if Auntie Mary wants a nice family photo then she can, but you can still choose the casual more fun images. But the main thing to note is that you dictate what style your photos are not us.

We aim to have your images presented to you within 4 weeks of the wedding. Then once you’ve chosen your favourites, we produce your design within 4 weeks. When you are 100% happy with the design the album takes about 4 weeks again. So, if your quick decision makers you could have your album in 3 Months. The only time this may vary is near to Xmas. Our lab slows down with the Xmas demand and we are busy in the studio. 

Anyone is welcome to the viewing after your wedding and they can also see them on your own online gallery. The gallery is password protected and only the people you give the password will be able to view them.

We do our very best not to take over on your day but if you request large formal family groups then we do need to organise people a little on the day. Every wedding is different, but we will make a rough plan with you before the wedding and we’ll “guide” you towards that plan. If unexpected things happen then we will adapt as much as we can on the day.
