Who Is Ian Petrie?
First and for most, I am a family man with a son called Lucian who is my world. I am married to Caroline, so I know what precious family and mile stone moments are like.
We both use to be local models before I took on photography and she took on makeup artistry. We love animals so much that we have a miniature zoo at our home.
Well, that is how I describe my home, the wife keeps saying we don't have enough animals. We have a Bulldog and a Pug, 2 guinea pigs, a pigmy hedgehog and 6 cats. I think we have more than enough animals in our lives, what do you think?
My Life, My Team!
I started my photography journey back in 2011, I have been fortunate enough to be decorated with over 87 published image awards over my photography career to date. My most recent award was from the Midland Enterprise Awards, for the best Family Photography Service East Midlands 2019.
This is something I am very proud off, I feel my portrait work really does show in my wedding photography as well. After all, a wedding is a very big portrait session. I am one of the most laid back people on the planet, this means I help my clients relax on their big day as well.
I love nothing else but to capture those emotional tears, laughter between you and family or friends. Emotional imagery is the only way to really see peoples personalities in wedding photos. Nothing is worse than forced awkward posed images, I have also developed a strong name for myself with fine-art portraits in clients homes. This means no need to travel anywhere to get world class portraiture images.
Anyway, I'd love to talk about your special photography needs!
