Above and beyond perfect

Chris was with us from first thing in the morning until pretty much the end of the night. Nothing was too much of an ask, he always made Katie & I feel at ease and he has captured some of the most amazing moments of our day with incredible shots. From the smiles to the tears, little details and plenty of dance moves. The guests loved him and like most wedding days some things didn’t run on time - but Chris worked with us and was always there to get the perfect shot! A great, friendly and professional guy (even down to his smart attire to blend in with the wedding) who captured our day perfectly and we can’t thank him enough.

Amazing professional photographer who felt like one of the family!

We chose Chris to be our wedding photographer as we loved the photos he took at other weddings; they looked relaxed and informal, like Chris had just caught little moments between people and nothing seemed forced. We had planned a very relaxed, small wedding and this was exactly the style of photos we had been searching for.
From initial contact, right through to the wedding itself, Chris' friendly and relaxed approach made the whole thing easy to arrange and he made us feel at ease for the day itself. He was prompt at replying to messages to reassure us and the payment process was super easy.
On the day itself, Chris became one of the family and fitted in with everyone just perfectly! He was great at getting shots when you did not even realise he was there, and he was equally brilliant getting group shots as we had pre-discussed, working with our wedding day dog nanny, Shelley, to include our dog.
We are so thrilled with the wedding photos and they capture our memories perfectly, as we remember the day and we will cherish them forever!
Thanks so much once again Chris, we will be recommending you to everyone we know and hope to maybe have some anniversary shoots with you too!

The best photographer for a Cornish wedding

Well where do we start? Chris has been an absolute blessing throughout our entire wedding journey.
After being impressed with his brilliant portfolio when we were deciding on our photographer we arranged a call with Chris who took the time to take us through everything about his style, expectations from us, our preferences and choices and also himself. He made us feel at ease throughout and was evidently very knowledgeable about our location in Cornwall and what we were after. It was a perfect match! Proved more so in the engagement shoot we had pre-wedding, where Chris delivered an amazing album with us on the beach of the venue and made us feel at ease before the big day.
The day itself couldn't have been more perfect, and Chris was an instrumental part of it, from the morning all the way through to the night, Chris was amazing!
Many of our family and friends also commented how Chris felt like a part of the family, a testament to his character and his photography skills.
The best choice we made, not to mention the final wedding photos we recieved were exactly what we wanted.
10/10, would recommend and urge everyone deciding to get married in Cornwall to give Chris a call. You will not regret it!
Thanks so much Chris.

Professional, fun and relaxed

Chris was so brilliant, he has provided professional service whilst blending into the wedding party.
We have so far received a lot of brilliant previews.
His photos have excellent horizon lines, beautiful editing and a mixture of posed and candid photos.
We are really happy with Chris' work and have recieved multiple compliments on both his work and his attitude.
I highly recommend Chris.

Amazing Photographer!

Chris is not only a talented photographer, but an amazing person to work with. His natural charm and humour made working with him not only a pleasure, but also he had the ability to put us both at ease. He was a big hit with all the guests, both adults and children! Chris has a great natural ability to capture the feel, essence and emotion of the day through reportage and standard techniques. I would highly recommend Chris for any wedding and other photography, a truly professional, organised and genuine guy. Thanks Chris for an amazing day!

Fantastic wedding photographer!

I'm so glad we had Chris to capture our wedding! As someone who is particularly awkward in front of a camera, I was delighted at how relaxed, personable, fun but professional Chris is. His engagement shoot was a great way to get to know each other and enabled us to relax on the wedding day knowing he would capture the best of us. His communication was spot on, including a helpful questionnaire to ensure he captured all the group shots/important people we wanted. I was keen for the day to be as relaxed as possible, and Chris delivered really beautiful, natural photos of us and our guests. We received so many comments on how wonderful he was, particularly with the children - he caught some lovely moments even from reluctant toddlers! Chris had done his homework on the area and scoped out some spots for the more intimate photos of us and it was lovely to escape for a little while and be 'in the moment'. We received some previews a couple of days later which were beautiful, and made us so excited for the full set. To say we are delighted with the photos is an understatement, Chris captured the relaxed intimate feel perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone! Thanks Chris!

Fantastic photographer

We hired Chris as our wedding photographer and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. From our first meeting he was super friendly and helpful. During our wedding he put everyone at ease and got some beautiful shots that my Wife and I will treasure forever.

Highly recommended ♥️

The best guy and best photographer

Chris really is the best. The photos he took on our wedding day were everything and more than we could have hoped for. He’s also a great guy, 100% reliable and made us feel absolutely relaxed about the whole thing. If you want natural photos on your wedding day then I couldn’t recommend Chris highly enough.

Fun, relaxed and talented!

My wife and I were over the moon with the service we received from Chris. He was a genuine laugh and it was a pleasure to have him at the wedding, something echoed by many of our guests. He didn’t get in the way but captured all the key moments and the results were stunning. Would recommend to anyone!

Fantastic!!!

We found Chris through the recommendation of a friend, and we are SO glad that he agreed to photograph our wedding.
His amazing skill with a camera meant he was able to perfectly capture the emotions of the day & create beautiful memories of the smallest details that would otherwise have been forgotten. The final photographs were better than perfect.
Chris is someone who fits in everywhere, gets along with everyone and just brings genuine happiness with him wherever he goes. I know we're not alone in hoping he stays in touch.
I cant recommend him enough!!

Our Wedding

I can’t recommend Chris enough, the photos speak for themselves as we absolutely loved them all! From the official ones to the candid shots, they had all clearly been given a lot of thought, attention and subtle editing! I would also highly recommend the pre-shoot as he put us totally at ease and really took the time to get to know us which meant on the day of the wedding during the most intimate moments he just felt like another guests!

Fantastic!!!

Chris was absolutely fantastic. We couldn’t have been any happier with the beautiful pictures he took. It is lovely looking through them and being reminded of all the special moments of the day. Everyone who has seen them has said how amazing they look. Equally as important, all of our guests loved him and we have received many comments on how nice he was and what a joy he was to talk to. We couldn’t recommend him any more highly!!

We can not thank Chris enough, you will not regret choosing him to be your wedding photographer!

We met Chris after seeing photographs he had captured at Watergate and we fell in love with his natural, relaxed style. When we decided to get married in Cornwall we knew we wanted Chris to capture the day.

On the day, he was so laid back and mingled amongst the guests perfectly and when we received the final album we were blown away by everything he had captured.

We couldn't have asked for more!

Well, what can we say about Chris? ...Book him immediately!!!

From the very beginning of our wedding planning Chris was brilliant. Extremely professional, communicative, so accommodating of our diaries and the surprise activities we sprung upon him, and he put us both hugely at ease on the day. What's more is that the photos are truly incredible! All of our family and friends have expressed how great the photographer was and we're already recommending him to others for their events. To top it all off, Chris is a just a really nice guy and we enjoyed getting to know him and hope we can keep in touch. Thanks so much Chris!
