Jane Ball Photography
I'm Jane a good old Northerner, originally from Liverpool so I can put on an excellent Scouse accent.I used to be a veterinary nurse so I love dogs, cats, llamas .... so in fact all animals. I love to travel ~ I've been to Israel, Russia, New Zealand as well as quite a lot of Europe. My favourite food is chocolate! My favourite accent is Italian and I love a well made Gin & Tonic.
My style of wedding photography is bright punchy and colourful. My approach is a relaxed, no fuss storytelling one.
Could we be a match? If you'd like :
* Documentary/candid photography for 95% of your big day
* An unobtrusive "blend into the background" approach from your photographer
* A few group photos so you can remember who came to celebrate with you
* A collection of beautiful, natural,non cheesy portraits of you both
then I DEFINITELY THINK WE COULD BE!
I'd love nothing more than to hear all about your plans - why not get in touch now?
This is probably one of the best sunsets I've experienced as a wedding photographer. As soon as I saw the lane outside the venue I knew I had to get my couple out and into that beautiful warm light for their portraits. They were such a great fun loving couple we were out for ages and I got absolutely loads of gorgeous portraits of them just being them, enjoying some quiet time away from the crowd.91st Collection
Alex and Nathan's wedding took place at their own home, a stunningly beautiful property in the heart of East Lancashire. They knew exactly how they wanted their romantic portraits to look so they chose the place that has the best views of the sunset and boy it didn't disappoint! There were so many gorgeous images of them it was really hard to choose which one to submit. In the end I chose this one because of how the setting sun caught the hem of Alex's dress, picking out the embellishments and making them shine like tiny diamonds.90th Collection
I knew this wedding was going to fun filled when the bride told me they were having a rodeo bull at the reception and it certainly proved to be the case when almost everyone in the wedding party had a go!
I was definitely in the right place at the right time to get this shot as the bride came flying off it almost knocking one of her bridesmaids over in the process.
Helen & Alex booked me as their wedding photographer in 2020 and over the past two years I've got to know them pretty well! They were both so nervous at the thought of being centre stage on their wedding day but after booking an engagement session earlier this year and having a ball during that, they absolutely rocked their wedding portraits. This photo was taken towards the end of their first portrait session of the day. We were in a beautiful meadow with long grass daisies and dandelion clocks, Helen grabbed one and asked Alex to make a wish on it .... this was the resulting shot. It totally sums up their fun and relaxed attitude to life.87th Collection
This is my favourite image from Helen & Alex's engagement session at the very beautiful Marles Wood alongside the River Ribble in Lancashire. This shoot had been postponed several times due to Covid but when we did finally manage to do it it was a stunningly beautiful afternoon. This shot was taken in the early evening just as the light was beginning to warm. I knew I wanted to capture that light with some flare. Helen & Alex were extremely nervous about being in front of the camera but they needn't have worried at all as they were completely natural and relaxed the whole way through.
They were completely unaware that I was taking this photo as they were so wrapped up in each other.
I can't wait to photograph their wedding in June.
I think I've said it before.... I love bokeh!
The beautiful gardens at Abbeywood Estate provided just the thing to add a touch of softness to the foreground in this shot.
As soon as I saw the gorgeous "hot" colour scheme I had this scene in my head and I'm really pleased at how it turned out.
This is another shot from the wedding workshop I did with Neil Redfern at Abbeywood Estate.
There was a beautiful wisteria climbing over the pergola where the couple were to walk. By shooting through it at a wide aperture I got this gorgeous bokeh ... I LOVE bokeh! ... and having the couple almost completely surrounded by that stunning purple colour it just made the image for me.
I'm a sucker for black and white photos. They're timeless!
Sometimes an image just screams out to be converted to black and white. This is image was one of those. As soon as I looked at the back of my camera I knew that I'd process this photo like this. It was shot at a wedding workshop in an attic type room with extremely harsh light streaming through the window. I felt the intimacy of the pose lent itself to making it all about the couple so I underexposed the shot so as to render the background very dark and really concentrate the light on the couple's faces.
This shot was taken at the stunning Abbeywood Estate in Cheshire during an incredibly informative workshop run by the awesome Neil Redfern.
I've wanted to be able to create some "wow factor" images for my couples since starting my wedding photography journey and this shot is just the type of thing I was after. Using a mirror held against my lens enabled me to get the reflection of sky underneath the couple.
I'll definitely be using this technique again!
