About

HELLO I'M CHRIS!

I AM A RELAXED CREATIVE DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN THE EAST MIDLANDS BUT MORE THAN HAPPY TO TRAVEL WHEREVER YOU PLAN ON SAYING “I DO”!

I specialise in photographing people who don’t like being photographed!

Do you love each other and want your wedding to be all about having a great time rather than a prolonged photo session? That’s precisely where I come in!

Many people worry about not being a natural in front of the camera. You don’t have to be! As long as you are being yourselves with each other – whether you’re having fun, being silly, or expressing your love through playful banter. Whatever your dynamic, just be yourselves, and I’ll naturally capture those moments. This approach ensures that your photos truly reflect your unique personalities.

My main aim is to help you feel at ease and fully enjoy your wedding day! I’ll discreetly capture the moments as they unfold, reflecting your day as it happened and not as a staged photo shoot!

When you look back on your photos, you’ll be transported to your incredible wedding day, recalling all the love, laughter, and perhaps even a few happy tears. These memories will warm your hearts for the rest of your lives together.

Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

Chris did an absolutely amazing job - he really did go above and beyond for the whole day. He's incredibly friendly, professional and easy to work with - and the 775 photos that he provided were all absolutely perfect. He captured some really special moments that we'll treasure for the rest of our lives

Superb candid and staged photos for any occasion

Chris is a phenomenal photographer. He's really friendly and has now taken our wedding and our son's Christening photos as we love his style so much. He communicates well before the big day, always arrives before he needs to be there, has a great sense of humour, and takes the most amazing candid photos, but also lets me send him a list of staged photos with guests we'd like, so you always end up with a perfect blend of the two! I can't recommend Chris enough, and if you want any special moment in your life captured forever, you're in super safe hands!

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!

More than a photographer

Chris was so much more than a photographer for our wedding - we knew we needed to book him within five minutes of meeting him. Incredibly friendly, phenomenal photos and super easy to work with. Chris' wedding experience is very clear and he used it through out the day to help in a variety of ways as well as make us feel comfortable with the day (and not just for the photos).

For both our engagement shoot and wedding, Chris turned around the photos on short timescales without losing any of the quality. His documentary style captures all of the moments (including those you didn't notice on the day) whilst giving absolutely stunning photos.

Friends and family have all commented on how great Chris was during the day and we didn't feel like he was intrusive at all. Chris was also very supportive throughout the pandemic with re-scheduling and suggesting that we do our engagement shoot on our original wedding date (his birthday!) - turned a sad day into a great, memorable one.

Thank you so much, Chris! To everyone else, don't hesitate to consider Chris for your photos!

Beautiful Photo's

Chris was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Not only does he make you feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed, he captures the most amazing photo's by being in the background capturing the 'in the moment' shots. We have truly beautiful pictures that capture the fun, love and laughter throughout our day, that we get to look back on and treasure forever. Amazing photo's and memories for an absolutely amazing and special day for us. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris to anyone, if you want someone who will make you feel at ease, relaxed and capture true life memories in the moment, then Chris is your man! He goes above and beyond, and we are forever grateful.

Way more than just an amazing wedding photographer!!!!

We hired Chris to take photos of our special day in August 2022 at a countryside venue in Derbyshire. Right from the word go Chris provided excellent communication and was always happy to offer useful suggestions to help us plan our day. We decided to have the package including two photographers for the day which meant we have amazing professional photographs of both wedding parties getting ready in the morning before the wedding.

We had a number of meeting with Chris during the planning process where he talked us through how the day would run, he was happy to accommodate all specific photo requests as well as coming up with some of his own creative ideas on the day. We made special requests to disappear from the wedding reception during sunset to get some golden hour photographs which we definitely recommend! Chris is very good at making people feel comfortable in front of the camera which results in amazing and natural looking photos and he was really helpful on the day with timekeeping and making sure we were all where we needed to be at the right time.q

We received our wedding photos sooner than expected shortly after our Honeymoon, one thing that we really liked about the online photo gallery is that all of the photographs from both photographers were time stamped, so all of the gallery appeared in chronological order; we could see what each party was doing at the time. Looking through our gallery was like reliving the day all over again! The photos are easy to download and store on an external hard drive and we are hoping to have an album made with Chris in future.

If you choose to go with Chris as your wedding photographer you can relax in the knowledge that on your wedding day all of the photography will be taken care of and you can just relax and enjoy your day!

THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS AND LUKE

Amazing photographer and highly recommend!

Chris photographed our wedding in September and the photos are amazing, he captured our day perfectly! We were planning a small, laidback wedding but we knew we wanted photos to remember and Chris did just that. From the beginning he made us feel at ease, arranging zoom calls to get to know us and what we wanted. We can both be awkward in front of the camera but Chris made sure that awkwardness disappeared and the photos show it! Thank you Chris for capturing photos we will love forever. We couldn’t recommend Chris enough!

the perfect photographer!

Chris was amazing from the start of the day right to the end. He was more than a photographer - but a wedding coordinator. He helped everything run smoothly. Our photos were perfect and just as we had envisioned and explained to Chris prior to the big day. He put us both at ease during our posed photos and allowed us to enjoy the whole process.

We would highly recommend and would use him again for other events!

Great service throughout

My wife and I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris as a wedding photographer. He is organised, professional, takes time to fully understand the wedding programme, and manages to capture really beautiful moments. We had a great pre-wedding photoshoot - the photos were stunning, and we are eagerly looking forward to our wedding photos. I was particularly impressed by his knowledge of Indian weddings, his ability to just go with the flow, and that magical bride/bridesmaid's bag he carries with him containing bobby pins, scissors, superglue etc. Imagine! Definitely saved some hairdos, outfits and shoes at our wedding!

Highly recommended!

I cannot recommend Chris enough. He is a brilliant photographer and a wonderful person.
Unfortunately we had a few hiccups occur on our big day and (although none were photo related) Chris went above and beyond to help out and ensure we had the best day possible. His friendly and accommodating manner made him a pleasure to be around. We are not a couple that loves our picture being taken, but Chris put us at ease and made it all feel effortless.
We love our photos and he has managed to capture so many precious and wonderful memories we will treasure for ever. Thank you Chris, you're a star!

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.

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!

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.
