About Chris Barber Photography

You can't post laughter.
It has to come from a place of authentic expression. It can't be posed or forced - it has to come naturally. I photograph people in a way that allows them to express themselves honestly. I want to go beyond simply creating images that make people say “oh that's so pretty”. Instead I want to make them instantly recognise a close family or friends defining characteristic, gesture or expression. I want you to see nothing but your friends and families awesome personalities flowing from every frame. My style doesnt hide behind a curtain like a photo ninja. It's present, it's involved and it's part of the day. 
For me... it's expression, energy and personality over absolutely everything.

  • "Over. The. Moon!!!"
    Lucy on 5 March 2018

    We were so overwhelmed by the choice of photographers + really struggled with our wedding photography because we hate having our photos taken so when I found Chris' work - I knew we finally found something different. Our photos are totally natural and candid. We didn't want anything structured + we didn't really want photos to distract from the day. Chris allowed us and our guests to just enjoy themselves and the photos are a true reflection of that. Everyone thought Chris was actually just a guest, he blended in perfectly and he was such a huge help on the day. Thank you so, so much for understanding 'us' and for our beautiful photographs!

    Chris is an absolute star. All our friends and family commented on how easy-going, relaxed and fun he was on the day and the photos are a reflection of that. Everyone looks so happy! Thank you!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?


How far in advance should I contact you?

As soon as possible. Most of my couples tend to book me immediately after securing their wedding venue. It's not unusual for peak season dates to be booked up 2-3 years in advance.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

I only accept a limited number of commissions per year so I can focus on working closely with a small group of couples to provide a personal service. This approach creates photos that are unique to you, your wedding + the personalities of your friends and family. Therefore, I would never consider photographing more than one wedding per day.

Are you able to travel?

I love to travel! I love the creative opportunity to photograph in locations I've not visited before + to see my approach through a new perspective. I frequently travel across the UK for weddings + have photographed weddings internationally (most recently Florida, Italy, + France).

What style of photos do you take?

Authentic expression is above everything I do. Unlike other photographers, I don't over think lighting, I don't care for gimmicks or trends + I don't hide behind a curtain like a weirdo all day. I'm present + I'm part of the day (like a guest but with a snazzy camera) but I'm never obtrusive, I avoid directing unless required + I'm basically there to have a good time + make sweet photos.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I photograph “love” a lot (like… a lot) so my definition of it is important because it inevitably impacts on the images I produce. I’m not gonna pretend my work is for everyone. It really isn’t. But the people I work with + I share the same ethos. To us… “love” is laughing till you snort at yourselves. It’s vedging out on the sofa together on a Friday night, watching Netflix + not wanting to be anywhere else in the world. Humans are designed to communicate, socialise + engage with other humans so it’s inevitable we feel a connection to portraits of people where we can sense a genuine energy or element of their characteristics. I create images that my couples, families + friends connect with – beyond simply creating a visually ‘pretty’ photograph. To me, choosing to spend your life with another human being isn’t a unicorn, crapping heart shaped confetti glitter, over a perfect double rainbow (although it would be kinda awesome). Instead, I choose to focus on a raw, genuine + less posey side of relationships. I mean… you *might* pose romantically together all the time (you lie) but I rather understand your little ‘in’ jokes + get to know you guys on a real level than just brute force a bunch of cliche poses for the sake of convenience + tradition. My work avoids anything stylized, glazed over, or artificially sweetened. It’s not driven by themes, it doesn’t try to be ”vintage”, quirky or feature the latest fad. It is what it is. You being you. I work with a limited number of couples every year so I can focus on a small group of people in a way that allows me to take the time to get to know you guys better + create genuine portraits, full of life, character + organic expression. You can’t pose laughter.
