About us

Photographing weddings since 2012 and love capturing those special memories. With photography packages suitable for all types of weddings. From low key weddings through to full day and night coverage.

We have years of experience and bring a level of calmness and ability to get the photos under pressure, whilst keeping you conformable and relaxed. Most importantly we really really love what we do. Our love for the job ensures that the shots are the best we can get and we’re always willing to go that extra mile to capture your perfect day.

We cover all types of weddings and events, including parties, award ceremonies, Christenings and more.

What kind of service do we offer?

Specialising in modern documentary style photography coverage but with traditional portraits/group shots included if required. Our style is a ‘fly on the wall’ type, nonintrusive photography known as documentary wedding photography. This style captures the key moments without cheesy poses or discomfort to you and your guests. This style is perfect for couples who don’t like being in the limelight or for those that would rather enjoy their special day without any hassle. Here is a great guide to wedding photography styles over on findaweddingphotographer

Our photographer will spend time with you ensuring you are comfortable, we work fast behind the camera for portrait sessions, so there’s no long waiting around for you and your guests. Zoom lenses help us capture key moments from a distance without a distracting camera in your face, allowing you to step back and enjoy your day 🙂 Many of the weddings we photo these days don’t have the old fashioned posed wedding photos, we prefer to focus on the little moments, the reactions and of course the laughter. That makes for a much more engaging photoset and our customers just adore them!

Where do we cover?

Anywhere really! We’re based in Newcastle upon Tyne/Gateshead/Washington but we are happy to travel.

Covering the North of England and Scotland (Leeds, Yorkshire, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, Cumbria, Lancashire, Edinburgh, Lothian, the Scottish Borders, Dumfries/Galloway, Ayrshire, Greater Glasgow and the Clyde Valley).

Who are BSC?

BSC Wedding Photography is run by professional wedding photographer/videographer; Graeme J. Baty, helped out by his lovely partner Lisa. Along with our various associate videographers.

Selfie time at As You Like It

A bit about Graeme from the man himself. “My main love in life is wedding photography and it is my full-time job. It’s safe to say I have my dream job! I’m in my late 30s, Newcastle born and bred. I have been working as a professional photographer for many years and have been published internationally with my photojournalism, event, video production, concert photos and portrait work. I run the Newcastle upon Tyne based photography and video services company Blank Slate Creative Ltd. Although that proved a bit too long-winded, so we abbreviated to BSC. I didn’t really want to name the business after my own name as it’s a bit cliche and I have not one, but two weird spellings of my name! This seemed the best solution. Hence we became BSC Wedding Photography.” 

“I absolutely love wedding photography, it really is the best job in the world! There’s nothing like the feeling you get when you hand over the finished photos and see the couple’s reaction 🙂 I photoed my first wedding in 2012 and (frankly) it was quite a terrifying experience but I found that I thrive in the challenging environment. In 2019 I moved to become a fulltime wedding and portrait photographer, I can now take on even more bookings and continue to offer improved service and additional options such as photo albums :)”.
