    Gorgeous photos and a lovely, helpful presence on the day!

    We had the most amazing experience with Chris as our wedding photographer. He was very responsive from our initial email onwards and it only took a chat over zoom to know he'd be a great fit for our day. He was so warm and friendly that we were immediately put at ease. On the day itself Chris was so helpful in helping things run smoothly and was an invaluable source of wedding know-how. Thanks to his gentle reminders we are able to stick to all the timings planned on the day and get photos of everything we wanted. I cannot overstate how helpful this was on an already manic day! Chris even spotted a rainbow at the end of the night while we were on the dance floor and got us outside for a picture which was amazing. We are so happy with the photos and our whole experience. We wholeheartedly recommend Chris - not only for his outstanding photography - but also his incredible people skills and helpfulness on the day. Thank you, Chris!

    Wonderful Wedding Photographer

    We loved having Chris photograph our wedding in October. Chris has a calm approach and also a great sense of humour. We had lots of comments on how 'cool' Chris was after the big day. Chris is clearly very experienced when it comes to weddings and was there to help ensure our special day went smoothly ( as well as doing his actual photography job - amazing). I have just looked through our wedding photos and they are perfect! Thank you Chris!

    Amazing talent

    We had our pre-wedding photo shoot, like an engagement shoot, in early 2020 before the pandemic was announced. Chris is a fantastic photographer who made us feel at ease in front of the lens very quickly. Chris is so friendly and has an incredible eye for seeing shots that turnout to be incredible. We are due to be married with a very small number of guests soon and are hoping to have a larger party to celebrate our wedding when we are able to do so. Chris has been very prompt with correspondence and has very kindly said he would shoot the small wedding and party for the already agreed and very reasonable price. We were thrilled with the results of the pre-wedding shoot and can’t wait for the wedding day!

    Chris is brilliant!

    We would wholeheartedly recommend Chris as a wedding photographer. From our first meeting to the pre-wedding shoot and the wedding itself, Chris made us feel at ease. We are not naturals in front of the camera, and Chris helped us to feel comfortable (and sometimes forget he was there)! The mix of candid and arranged photographs are beautiful and Chris was so accommodating of our requests for photos of particular people. Kind, friendly, helpful and a wonderful photographer. Thank you Chris.

    Highly recommended

    Chris integrated himself really well into our small wedding of 30 which is not easy! He was great with our shyer guests, blending in and helping them not to feel on show. He was equally good with the children present both when they were unsure of the formal photos and when they wanted lots! Communication has been great throughout the process despite the difficulties of covid. Everything that we asked for was captured in a natural and relaxed way. He took the time to know what we wanted and ensured that we would have reminders of everything important to us for years to come.

    Incredible talent

    Wow... I couldn't be happier with our prewedding and wedding day photos.

    Chris makes you feel instantly comfortable in front of the Camera, we went from not kissing in public hardly ever, to being completely comfortable with kissing for photographs. He has some great techniques for genuine laughter and dissolving the awkwardness of gazing into someone's eyes!

    I have no idea how he sees the amazing photo potential in everyday life and makes it even more stunning.

    We couldn't be happier with our hundreds of gorgeous photos, both posed and candid. We can't thank you enough Chris. Thank you!!!!!

    Excellent communication ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Would highly recommend Chris for wedding photography. We met him a few months prior and he knew exactly what we wanted for our smaller, informal wedding day. A few weeks before he also came to meet us at the venue to have a look around. Chris put everyone at ease, including those who dislike having their photograph taken. He helped out massively on the day, fetching me (the bride) a drink and even helping with a tricky dress! We are over the moon with our photographs from the day, and Chris kindly sent us a preview slide show whilst we were on honeymoon only 3 or 4 days after the wedding day which was very exciting and lovely. 5 stars, would recommend!

    Awesome absolutely brilliant photographer! Took some very good natural photos.

    We could not recommend Chris enough. He was absolutely brilliant in the run up and on the day. We felt relaxed around him and he took some beautiful photos. He went above and beyond and we could not have asked for more, even convinced an ice cream van to let us have photos in the van and bradgate park. Don't hesitate-book him!

    As soon as we met Chris we felt at ease, for people like us who don’t really like having their photo taken we knew we had to get the right photographer and Chris was exactly that. He made us feel really comfortable and we loved his style of photography.

    From start to finish Chris was super helpful and on the day was absolutely brilliant! Any issues that arose Chris had a solution! From helping with the flowers and even providing transport, his experience and calm nature was priceless.

    Chris listened to what kind of photo we wanted and we are so pleased with the finished shots, they are stunning. He was great at organising people on the day and making sure things ran smoothly and that we got all the shots we wanted and more. Chris was so patient throughout.
    So many guests have commented on how great Chris was, and how he fitted in so well.
    We honestly cannot recommend Chris enough, thank you!

    Chris is an absolute wonder! There’s a quote on his website about him being “Mary Poppins with a camera” and it’s so true – not only does he take incredible images, he’s got everything in that magical camera bag and all his experience means that he is really handy to have around while getting ready; from doing up dress buttons to providing Paracetemol when the headache hits, he did it all!

    We had so many lovely comments from our friends and family about how un-intrusive Chris was, and that they didn’t even really notice that he was there. We also got so many gorgeous shots from both our pre-wedding shoot and the big day itself.

    We could not recommend Chris highly enough, plus he’s just an all-round lovely guy!

    Chris is awesome! He is more than just a photographer….he is an added bridesmaid, groomsman, wedding coordinator and all round awesome guy!

    He not only takes A M A Z I N G photos, but goes above and beyond the ensure you feel comfortable, relaxed, informed and organised. He’ll hold your dress whilst walking, pick confetti out of your hair and also carry your lipstick and perfume in his special bridal bag.

    He is 1 in a million and we could not be happier that we had him capture our special day! Everyone who attended our wedding last weekend commented on how awesome he was, noone ever felt uncomfortable around him, he made you laugh, joke and enjoy the day with ease.

    If you’re struggling to find a photographer that captures the moments you want to cherish, then I really think you should book Chris. You will not regret it at all.

    Thank you again for being so awesome, Todd and myself will be forever grateful that we came across you….and that we got to see you fall in a bush, just to get the perfect photo.

    THANK YOU!
