Fantastic experience with Chris!

Chris was an amazing photographer both at our wedding, and for the post-engagement shoot. Communication was excellent throughout and nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't be happier with the photos from Chris and would highly recommend his services! Tom and Victoria

Fantastic!

Chris is a fantastic photographer who captured our special day perfectly. We have had so many comments from guests saying how good he was on the day and how beautiful the photos have turned out. He really captured the feel of our special day with some beautiful natural photos of ourselves and our guests. We keep going back and looking at our photos!

We could not fault Chris with his skill and professionalism. He kept us all at ease and never seemed stressed, even when we were running a bit late before the ceremony. He was also mindful of not keeping us all out in the cold for longer than necessary as this was a February wedding which involved snow, rain, wind and sun all in one day!

We could not recommend Chris enough, he's kept us informed the whole way and we can't wait to get our hard copy prints after seeing how beautifully they have turned out digitally.

Just book Chris Smith!

Chris was one of the best supplier decisions we made for our wedding. A complete professional and so lovely with it! Our wedding day was incredibly rainy so Chris had to be super creative to get all the shots we had planned/discussed with him. The photos document the day perfectly and are something we will cherish forever.

Spectacular photos of our wedding!

Chris was fabulous, he saw our vision, he knew exactly what to capture and how to get the most out of our guests, our venue and us! We absolutely loved working with him and our photos are to die for, we will cherish them forever. If he asks you to step into the rain for a minute…trust him, you won’t be disappointed.

Wedding photographera of our dreams!

From the first contact with Chris it was clear that he was an absolute professional with a wealth of experience. Not only were the photos he produced stunning, but he put both myself and my husband completely at ease throughout the day, and was a pleasure to have at our wedding (although it was also amazing how unobtrusive he was!) Neither of us are fans of posing, but he managed to capture loads of romantic shots without making us feel awkward or silly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris as a photographer to anyone, as he truly captured the spirit of our wedding. Thanks Chris!

A Fantastic Day Captured

Chris was a warm and welcoming pleasure to work with both prior and on the day of our wedding. Chris’ communication was brilliant and he has a relaxed persona about him and ensures that on the day, you are given the time to enjoy it and not be pressured into having photos galore and be dragged away constantly from the social aspect of the wedding day.
His experience with The West Mill was evident and the photos that he captured of our day was stunning and exactly the kind of photos we had in mind.
We had our dog come for a couple of hours to which we took Chris’ recommendation for chaperone/sitter and he was fully onboard with working with our dog.
Overall, it was an absolute pleasure for Chris to be with us on our day.

Stunning photography

When we first met Chris he made us feel at ease and very comfortable. He gave us all the information we needed or asked for during our first meeting.
On the lead up he made sure we were happy with everything and were able to give him any inspiration photos we wanted.
He was able to get photos of the groom getting ready and still beat me to the venue where I was getting ready.
Throughout the day he was hard at work, we never noticed him in the way, and he was always prepared for any last minute requests, even leaving his dinner to make sure things were perfect.
His attention to detail was amazing the photos really told a story throughout the day, he stayed late and provided us a photo booth which was incredible and well worth it! We have memories to cherish forever.
If I were to fault anything, I know there were a couple of photo inspiration pictures I had wanted and missed out on and would have liked more photos of our first dance.
Chris is more expensive than some photographers we had looked at but beyond worth it! And the extras he provides are exemplary! - I likely would have spent more to get a cheaper photographer and the same additions.

Fantastic photographer, relaxed manner, with truly brilliant photos!

Chris was fantastic and we would highly recommend him to anyone getting married. His photographs are stunning and we were so happy with them. Going through the photos after our wedding was a real treat and we both felt extremely happy with having chosen Chris.

We both also really appreciated the way Chris operated during the day. It never felt a chore to get all specific friends / family group photos. Chris really is excellent at subtly organising people and choosing the right moment to get each of the group shots. We really felt able to enjoy the day without ever feeling like we were posing for photos for any extended period. I think it felt the same for our guests too. Chris has a really nice friendly personality and I’m sure that due to this he would fit seamlessly into any wedding.

We can’t recommend Chris highly enough. He is an excellent photographer and really helped to make our day special. He’s given us a collection of photos to treasure.
