Daniel W.'s review on Sep 26, 2020

Bill was fantastic!! We had our wedding in Scarborough cancelled due to covid 19 in June and rearranged for September. Bill was there when we arrived (we were 10 minutes early) and made us both feel so comfortable throughout the 2 1/2 hours he was with us. Having no guests or family with us on the day, he helped too with being our witness with his wife, which was above and beyond expectations. Cannot wait to get our photos, which I'm positive will be awesome.

Bill photographed our wedding last week. He was totally amazing and so professional. Bill has a warm personality with a great sense of humour which made us feel so relaxed for our photos and we enjoyed having him with us for our very special day. The photos are amazing and we couldn't be happier.

You are beautiful couple and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you both. I felt really privileged to be chosen and its so much better when it's fun as the warmth and happiness just really shines through. Swinton Park is a beautiful venue and I glad you gave me the time to capture you both making your marriage vows as husband and wife in such an iconic location.

Andrew s.'s review on Sep 04, 2020

Bill was absolutely brilliant in what he did for us. We have some brilliant shots. Even though our wedding took place in a storm he still pushed to get the best shots he could and this can clearly be seen in the end product. Would recommend and have recommended Bean Photographed to anyone and everyone.

Thank you Andrew and Donna, you were so relaxed and it truly made my job much easier. We were dreading that storm but not once did either of you complain and we were all so very relieved to get that small window to quickly capture what I hope are photos you and your family will treasure forever. Have a wonderful life together and thank you for trusting me to photograph what is such an important occasion to you both.

Mark V.'s review on Feb 18, 2020

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend William for any event, we found him to be extremely professional, hardworking, reliable with a great sense of humor, which is extremely important if you want your guests to be captured looking happy and relaxed. As an older bride, I was extremely anxious about having my pictures taken as am not a fan and usuay avoid having my picture taken at all costs .Within seconds William had me in stitches and my anxiety just melted away . Every single guest commented, about the lengths he went to for a perfect shot. We have some amazing photos and we have to admit, he captured every single aspect of our wedding, we are completely blown away

Thank you Mark and Dawn. You are a fantastic lovely couple and not surprisingly supported and surrounded by beautiful friends and family. You were both great and so easy to work with that the time just flew by. There are some beautiful photos to mark a 1st Class Wedding. I hope there were some nice surprises in there for you both when you reviewed them and please don’t forget to share with those attending and print out your chosen photos. I wish you both a long happy healthy life and thank you so much for trusting me to capture 1 of the most important days in your life. Bill Bean.

Mark B.'s review on Jan 14, 2020

The photographs I received recording my special day were simply brilliant. Apart from the necessary photographs of myself with guests and the further images of guests, family and partners together etc, the actual fun, genuine ‘party’ essence and overall enjoyment being had by all at the party was captured via images that simply froze the moment in time, to be looked at and laughed at over and over again. Bill’s ability to generate laughter at exactly the moment the shutter closes is brilliant. His cordial manner with everyone being photographed made the overall experience fun and removed any feelings of awkwardness in front of the camera. Fantastic, absolutely 5 stars, my wife and I cannot thank him enough. thank you.

Crystal O.'s review on Oct 20, 2019

Bill produced some great photos and exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer. Our wedding was a small family church wedding and we wanted some great photos of the family which is exactly what we have. Bill spent time with us and ensured he got great photos and we are very pleased. We spoke on the phone before the wedding and I felt confident that Bill was passionate about photography and would be the best photographer for our day. I would recommend him to others. Bill is friendly and chatty with guests which helps when someone is so closely part of your big day, they’re almost like another guest so it helps that Bill is funny and personable. Would recommend! 5 stars ! Thank you Bill!

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I believe in providing a quality professional service but with the importance on competitive pricing providing for either just part or the whole of your wedding day captured in beautiful print ready, water mark free quality images. I use the very latest cameras, lenses and flashes with up-to-date photo editing software to ensure the final image that I deliver to your secure gallery is the best quality you deserve and expect.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
Communication is key. I have developed people skills and I believe the first and most important skill is listening. Every bridal couple will have an idea of what they want want from their wedding photographer and its extremely important to listen, understand and ensure you deliver what they ask and are ultimately paying for. Anything extra I provide on top of that is always a welcome bonus to ensure the full memories of their day are immortalised in print. I always say that time travel is not possible but that a photo locks in a time, location and memory that when viewed 10. 20, 30 years can immediately take you back. Therefore I believe its important to know that you are taking a photo not only for the moment but the future and therefore it needs to be a classic that can stand the test of time.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
A lot of work done by the your wedding photographer is unseen with perhaps the taking of the photo the only visible aspect. After communicating with the bridal couple understanding their dreams and aspirations its important to make sure you deliver. Not only before, during but after. When the food is eaten, the wine drunk and everybody has gone home your photographers work really begins. Experience, quality of work, understanding and meeting the customers expectations are pre-requisites to delivering a quality service that can compete with the competition. As a mature photographer I have travelled the world photographing beautiful iconic cities, military training, properties from old to new build, operate events and family occasions so your skill base needs to be diverse to enable you to see the very best photo in even the worst locations.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Honestly, probably a little controversial but number 1, be realistic and don't get drawn into the whole social network of photographers shop front of photos showing only models and staged photos. Ensure you see real photographs of real weddings before making your decision. Number 2, look at pricing. There is a basic human nature that if a photographer charges more then that photographer must be better than a photographer that charges less. People sometimes believe that to be credible you need to be reassuringly expensive as paying more means you get more. In either case that is not always true so ensure you do your homework to ensure the end product is what you both want, is within your budget and is realistically priced. The opportunity to view work on-line has never been easier and its easy to get comfortable and slowly creep out of your pricing zone when looking at the carefully selected photos chosen for the front window is reflective of the photographers skill level for every bridal couple. Its true, quality is never cheap but it does not need to be exorbitantly expensive either.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Have a clear idea on what you want and ensure your photographer has experience in delivering those sort of photos. Check their portfolio to ensure they can deliver what you expect and are paying for. So ensuring their competency is important, experience vital but being current with the latest equipment and technology to deliver "out of the park" images is a must. Whilst talking about images, that is the end product and you and your guests must be front and centre in it. I can provide the deep black silhouettes and disproportionally small figures in a large landscape but can large lapels can date very quickly and don't always show the warmth, humour and happiness of the day.
What are some good examples of past customers?
Connecting with all age levels is vitally important, not only with the bridal couple but their family and invited guests also need to prominently feature. Sometimes, couples don't know what they want and you have to coax and guide them gently. A particular couple didn't really want individual portraits or couple photos however, after a gentle conversation I asked them to give me just five minutes (we can set the clock) exclusively with them and they were thrilled with the results and were so grateful they were encouraged to take the time to capture this once in a lifetime moments. Equally, ensure if they have any surprises planned for their wedding that you are aware so you can be ready to capture it. This reminds me of the the singing waiter. Acting the part of the waiter, causing a small scene to get attention and breaking into his act had everyone swinging their napkins and doing the conga.Absolute classic providing key golden moments that show what a happy wedding is all about.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
Every wedding couple is different and after meeting their expectations its important to try and provide surprises and give them something a little special such as the champagne shot, hairspray shot, umbrella shoot, sparklers, fireworks, new moon rising, bubbles, hidden portraits to name just a few. Nobody wants to know everything that is going to be in their gallery, no matter what your age or experience everyone likes to be pleasantly surprised. Off camera Flash is time consuming but highly rewarding and at a recent wedding finding a nice location where the groom was having 5 minutes to himself in the chair appearing to be lit by a warm lamp when in a actual fact it was a flash with a warm CTO gently bathing one side of his face. The groom had no idea what I was doing but was simply stunned with the result and the bride absolutely loved it. It takes time and planning but the rewards are immense and the opportunity for this and similar images is in every location, you just have to know where to look for them.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I have been taking photos since I was 17. The ability to shape light and see a photo where nobody else can has always intrigued me and kept me sharp. You never get time to relax and rest on your laurels because the moment that you do you fall behind the curve. Wedding photography is not for the faint hearted and is perhaps the most demanding and hardest field within photography. So you have to want to do it and you have to enjoy it. Every time you walk into a rook or venue you have to look for the light and locations to identify rapidly the best places that will provide the best images. As I have said, when the day is day, everyone eagerly waits for the photos and if you don't deliver, "every time" you won't survive long in this line of work.
