Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
Have you ever wondered what makes a good photograph? What makes you like an image more than another?
To me, a great photograph is an image that triggers emotions in the viewer. An image that is meaningful and honest, portraying real moments and real emotions. These are the images that I want to capture at a wedding. Images that will still be relevant in years to come. Photos that will increase in personal value with time. Images that matter….
Hi, My name is Robin Cook, a semi-professional wedding photographer in Hull, covering East Yorkshire, the East of England and further afield. I capture timeless and natural images working in a creative yet relaxed way. I create emotive images to cherish for years to come.
My coverage is discrete, tactful and relaxed. Light and composition are used to creatively document your day, capturing real emotions and all the excitement and joy of your wedding day. I will take a few creative and considered portraits of the two of you to complement nicely the story of your day. Your images will stand the test of time and look beautiful and current in years to come.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
Getting the underlying structure right, otherwise the photograph has no basis on which to stand.
If I had made this shot in black-and-white, there would be little to no contrast between the red wall and the blue. The blue is often lighter than the red in this photo, so even using a red filter in B&W would not have gotten me what I needed to catch your eye. In color, the color red takes charge and makes this shot successful.
You should be able to defocus your eyes and look at your image from a hundred feet away, and the basic organization of elements within your frame should still be obvious.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
Before starting any project, I take some time to sit down with my client to ask some tough questions about process, organizational politics, and risks.1 Asking direct questions will go a long way in ensuring that you’re applying the right processes to the project and setting the right expectations about how your teams will work together. So, without further adieu, here are ten questions to help you get your project started on the right foot.
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy documenting weddings and I love the variety they offer. I love also working at different locations, from a barn to a stately home in the country side, to an elegant venue in the city centre. I have worked at churches, wedding venues and witnessed a few humanist ceremonies. I have been lucky to document weddings across many faiths and in different countries, (My wife is from the Philippines) and this is what makes wedding photography enjoyable.
What inspired you to start your own business?
By understanding the context and the feelings of the wedding day, I create deeply personal collections of images that capture the spirit of these momentous occasions. My wedding photography stays clear of anything cheesy or awkward and instead, subsequent wedding photos embody the spirit of the day - wedding photography is so much more than just a collection of aesthetically pleasing images.
Why should our clients choose you?
Weddings are profoundly emotional, often complex and fast paced events, with my photojournalistic style, my wedding photography captures and records weddings in a way that instantly takes you back to a moment and the way you felt. This is the true power of discerning reportage wedding photos - to be transported back with the rich mix of nostalgia, love and gratitude that you felt on your wedding day.
If you want your wedding photography in a way that genuinely encapsulates the mood and emotions that you, your partner and your family felt on the day, then I might just be the photographer for you. We can arrange a meeting and I can begin to get a feel for your unique connection. Get in touch and we can discuss your specifications, needs and desires for the wedding day.
