Chris Giles Photography

About

Based in Ditchling, England, Chris Giles Photography is a professional photographer who shoots weddings throughout East Sussex. With more than 10 years of experience, Chris has been privileged to capture nuptials all across the UK and overseas. This photographer understands that there isn't one specific style that suits all couples and so works in a fusion of aesthetics. This means he can move from a relaxed, informal, storytelling approach to one that is more formal for posed photos with the wedding party. Chris is also excellent in low light and in covering the dance floor late at night. In addition, he understands that getting great pictures both shouldn't involve being away from your guests for an hour. Therefore, for group shots, he will not take up too much of your time.

Services Offered

Chris Giles Photography provides packages that range between half-day and full-day coverage. Images are supplied digitally, with the option to purchase wedding albums and parent books. The minimum number of photos edited and delivered is 500 but there is no limit for how many you can order to remember your special occasion.

    Brought Energy

    Chris! What a bloke! We've had so many compliments on how great Chris was on the day, he got everyone chuckling throuout and the pictures as a result are just perfect.
    From the very start - moments with my parents and bridesmaid and flower girl through to the outdoor dance floor, and quiet intimate moments, Chris got it all.
    Chris went above and beyond when we went down to the seafront..he scouted out some great spots and then showed us where to stand. Next thing we know...hes taken his shoes off, is in the water getting THE shot. Absolutely incredible what he can invisage and then make it come to life, not just at the seafront, but elswhere in the venue grounds.
    We also asked Chris on his reccomended videographers too as we knew we wanted the day on film and he suggested 2 options for us and we dedided to go with Ben from Foster Filming. The two worked together perfectly. In the lead up to the day Chris was responsive and helpful when we wanted to know more about timings that worked for all parties. The formal pictures ran smoothly and he knew how long roughly things would take to make sure that the day didnt run over.
    So thank you Chris for capturing our majical day on camera forever.

    Wow wow wow!

    What can I say but WOW. Wow, wow, wow WOW!! And that’s before I even get to those wonderful pictures! Let me gush a little first. Bear with as it might get cringe worthy!

    It’s really hard to put into words our ‘Chris Giles Photography’ experience as it's been hard to find the words to express the love and gratitude we feel because he's not just a man with a camera. He's been a wedding guru, a friend, a giver of advice and a really, another member of the family for the last two years. With every phone call, meeting, email or Facebook post his passion for photography, his clients, and weddings in general is obvious.

    As soon as Chris came to our little flat we knew he was our photographer. Put simply, he just got US. Our approach, our style and our thinking. I was so excited after that first meeting that I cancelled other appointments and dismissed all other quotes.

    On the day he was pure magic. I don’t know how he managed to be everywhere but at the same time be such a calming and reassuring presence. Everyone has commented that he was more than a photographer and more like a guest, even running after the unruly children. That is a quality money cannot buy!

    Now – onto the photo’s themselves. Perfection. Each and every one captures the emotion, the fun and overall wonder of the day and are a beautiful snapshot of the whole experience. I knew after the engagement shoot they would be brilliant, but they were more than we could ever have hoped for.

    Thank you Chris. Thank you for being everything we wanted and much, much MUCH more.

    All our love
    Clare & Simon – the Ambroses

    Like Xanax

    Chris made us feel so relaxed and at ease. He made all the group pictures such fun (when they can become a bit of a drag!) that all our guests loved him!

    Not only did he capture great memories for us but we felt that he was our own PA on the day as he were always on hand with what was going to happen next.

    We're so thankful for having him as part of our day!

    They spent the whole weekend with us

    Chris and Laura were fabulous!

    They had a camera shy bride and a photophobic extended family to take on. I cannot believe how beautiful our wedding photos are.

    Chris and Laura Joined us for the whole weekend in France and I truly felt like they were a member of the family.

    They were sneaky and subtle when they needed to be, but Chris was always ready with a hug and a compliment for a wobbly subject.

    The photographs are stunning, but they were also presented so beautifully, they feel really special and the gift box was such a special treat to come home to.

    Can't thank you enough guys!

    Good with horses :)

    I contacted Chris after looking at an example of his wedding album displayed at my chosen venue.

    The work was head and shoulders above anything else I had seen.

    It was classy, relaxed and emotional.

    Chris is not your stereotypical photographer! He is bubbly, personable and wise. He knows what works without shouting about it!

    He was discreet on the day as well as making a great impression with my guests who adored him.

    I've lost count the amount of compliments we have received for Chris.

    And then came the photos...WOW!

    They tell a story. From the tiniest detail within architecture and using wedding shoes creatively, to capturing secret glances and laughter.

    Our wedding shots are like no other. We didn't want or need endless static formals, instead snapshots of the day how we have it in our memories.

    So a massive thank you to Chris and Adam for everything, you were a perfect choice for our perfect day!

    Thank you

    Dear Chris,

    Fee & I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work in producing the most superb collection of photographs for our wedding day. We are both simply amazed at the consistently high quality you achieved, despite the tricky autumn light conditions, and feel so lucky to have had your talents on hand to capture the atmosphere of the day so perfectly. We simply could not be any happier with the results!

    From the moment we first met you, and despite our nerves and natural camera shyness, you really did put both of us totally at ease and gave us a huge amount of trust in your work. It was such a pleasure, particularly, to have your support, kind words and discrete presence throughout the day. We would like also to pass on that we\'ve had so many positive comments about you from our guests, all of whom have been equally impressed with the results.

    It was a real pleasure briefly getting to know you and a great privilege to share our day with you. We simply cannot recommend you highly enough and we do wish you every success with all your future projects.

    With very best wishes,

    Fee & Simon

    Top notch photography

    We’re really pleased with the work Chris completed in his time with us. His work was first rate and we felt the most important people on our wedding day.

    Chris stayed longer than he needed to and had a great attitude. What really caught us by surprise was the (superb) images were there waiting for us when we got in from our honeymoon which was most unexpected.

    Hi Chris!

    Dear Chris,

    Where do we start? We wanted to send you a few words to thank you SO MUCH for everything you did on Saturday. As you probably noticed, we had the best day ever, ever, ever.

    We're still just about floating back to earth now but Ireland has been lush and super chilled so far so it's a soft landing.

    You were everything we could have hoped for and more on the day. So many people have asked us whether you were our friend or how we knew you already - people thought you were part of the entertainment and my mum absolutely loved you.

    Not only did you work your arse off all day, you enhanced the day for both the guests and for us. We felt totally looked after and supported by you throughout.

    We had no idea we'd get to see the pictures so quickly. They are absolutely incredible AND there are just so many. We keep going through them and it feels like there is something different every time we look at them. It's like the gift that keeps on giving!

    I can't begin to thank you enough. So many details you picked up on but it feels like you captured our guests, us and the day itself perfectly. We keep laughing whenever we spot something different.

    (Also, you took pictures of my cat who is (other than Alex) the ultimate love of my life and that makes me SO HAPPY!).

    All the blissed out love,
    Izzi and Alex xxx

    Hello!

    Hi Chris,

    Paul and I wanted to reach out and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our special day.

    The moment you approached me in the dressing room I felt like I had known you forever! You are one of the kindest and most fun people I have met.

    We keep receiving comments from our guests of how great you were and most importantly you made my parents feel so comfortable.

    I hope there wasn’t too many drunken antics captured!!! and we hope that you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

    Most of all, we wanted to express what a truly great person you are and that you played a huge part in our day.

    We will never forget the experience!

    P.s. Your the only man I would let throw me into a bush and come out with nettle stings with a smile on my face!!

    Fondest regards
    Gemma and Paul

    Awesome

    Hi Chris,

    We just wanted to say an absolutely MASSIVE thank you!! You were more than just a photographer, but my fifth bridesmaid, Scott's fifth groomsman and just an all round legend all day!

    Everyone thought you were brilliant.

    The photos are absolutely incredible and we must have looked at them all a million times already. You captured every aspect of our day, including the special details that we would have forgotten.

    You were worth every penny and if ever you need a recommendation from us you know where we are.

    All the best!!
    Rebecca & Scott

    You saved the day

    Hi Chris,

    James and I would like to say a huge thank you!
    We can't tell you how happy we are that we found you.

    You went above and beyond for us on Thursday, not only were you doing some amazing photography, you were also a real support to us throughout the entire day.

    It didn't go unnoticed how much you were looking after us, from cleaning up spilt drinks to lending the photo booth your camera so part of our day wouldn't be ruined, and everything else you did, there's just too much to list!

    Everyone said how fantastic you were, you were like the photographer version of Mary Poppins, and we were genuinely sad to see you go at the end of the night!

    All our thanks,
    Lydia & James

    Hi!

    Hi Chris!

    We are totally overwhelmed by our pictures! Thank you so much. We have been looking at them all weekend. We just hid a couple and shared with friends and family this evening who are already giving a lot of positive feedback. We are looking forward to the gift box too!

    Thank you also for putting myself and Dave at ease on the day. Neither of us had had any professional photographs before but you made it fun and so easy and we love the results.

    Also, I could not have got through a couple of the more tense moments (crazy mum/sleeping brother/tomato stains on dress/ missing hook on dress) without you. You made the day so smooth and enjoyable that I couldn't imagine it without you there!
    We have recommended you to everyone we know but didn't really need to as all our guests sang your praises!

    Deepest thanks and appreciation
    Steph and Dave

    Chris,

    Thank you so much for everything on Saturday.

    We've had so many people comment on how comfortable you made them feel and how excellent they thought you were. Our families particularly loved you. Will be recommending you to anyone I hear asking for a photographer.

    Josh also asked me to pass on his massive thanks for helping him and the Best Men out so much during the course of the day.

    Lots of love
    Rachel and Josh xx
