Hey! I'm Darren and I am Chronicle Photography. I'm a wedding and family photographer based in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. I cover weddings all over Scotland and the north of England.

I believe that life is all about the the small, fleeting, intimate moments during big occasions and celebrations, and I love capturing fascinating people and the unforgettable experiences they share.

I look for natural moments and interactions as they happen. If you are looking for a OK! magazine-style photoshoot during your wedding, I'm not the guy for you; If you want someone to tell the story of your day, while you have the best time with those closest to you, with a sprinkling of romantic portraits to hang on your wall at home, then let's talk!

When you hire me, you'll never see me without a smile. I love being invited into my couples lives and sharing their biggest moments with each other. I bring a happy and positive vibe with me whereever I go, from supporting you throughout the whole planning process to interacting with guests on the dancefloor until the music stops.

Highly recommend Darren at Chronical Photography!

Darren was excellent from the time of enquiry right through to delivering our wedding photos after the wedding. On the day of our wedding Darren was so relaxed and happy to go with the flow of the day, instead of having a ridged photography plan, which is exactly what we wanted. He's such a lovely and funny guy which made the couple shots a lot more comfortable. The best thing about Darren was he made sure we didn't miss out on spending quality time with our guests and didn't have us standing posing for photos for too long, but he still managed to capture all the shots we wanted. The finished results were perfect and exactly what we want. I would highly recommend Darren to anyone for any occasion!

Pre-Wedding Shoot

Darren was brilliant from the moment we made contact. When we met for our pre-wedding photoshoot he provided a warm and friendly service making me, my partner and our dog feel at ease in front of the camera. The photos were very professional, providing a very flattering image of both me and my partner while making it feel natural. We would definitely recommend his services for any future couples and look forward to what he'll produce for our wedding.
