My daughter worked with John recently and became a finalist in the ‘The Experience Portrait Experience’ competition.
John was very professional and produced some amazing photography!
My daughter particularly loved the review session of the final pictures - we would 100% recommend Johns studio and photography!

Customer Testimonials

The essence of a good wedding photographer is surely to produce something that mirrors the personalities of the bride and groom and capture the spirit of the day.John manages to do that and more, producing photographs that transport you back to the emotion and happiness of the day every time you look at them. He captured the spirit of our wedding day perfectly and listened to everything we said about what we wanted. Every person who has seen our album and DVD has waxed lyrical about the quality and attention to detail of the pictures. I can't rate him highly enough.

John Woods Photography took the photo's for our wedding back in 1996. Since then we have been back numerous times as our family has grown. Recently had John take photos of our boys as a surprise Xmas present for my wife. As normal John came up trumps producing fresh innovative photos while conducting himself in his usual friendly but professional manner. Keep up the good work

Had a great baby photo shoot with John when our son was only 2 weeks old, despite numerous nappy related incidents John made us feel relaxed and we got some wonderful studio shots as a result. Great follow up and professional service, we'll be going back for sure!

John was friendly and approachable and made us feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend to others.

From Our Website

John Woods Photography was established in 1987. Based in Huddersfield's elegant Byram Arcade. Our family portrait studio undertakes hundreds of photographic comissions every year. From newborn babies to large family groups we produce wall art, albums and prints for many local families. We take passport pictures on a daily basis, offer headshots for social media & promotional usage and offer a full portfolio service for actors and models. We run several themed photo shoots and special offers throughout the year and Graduation portraits anytime.

We produce passport photographs for most countries in the world as well as UK driving licenses and ID photographs for work. Passport pictures for babies too are no problem. All our passport pictures are taken by hand, sized to the exact specifications and checked for the correct exposure before being printed. In the unlikely event of them being rejected we will take them again free of charge. 9 times out of 10 we can take them straight away but to avoid disappointment it's a good idea to call us on (01484) 514744 and book in - just to make sure we're not in the middle of a studio session.

Over 600 couples have booked us to record their big day since we opened for business 30 years ago. Our present style is a documentary approach to covering your wedding. There are a few standard shots and a handful of group photographs included though we place more emphasis on telling the story of the day and capturing the details. The photography starts with the bridal preparations, covers the ceremony and afterwards and concludes with all the speeches and cutting of the cake at the reception. Pictures are mixture of colour and black & white.
