It’s always a bit odd writing about yourself but I’m probably the one non-guest at your wedding that you’ll spend the most time with. So it’s worth making sure I’m not a weirdo. So let me tell you a little bit more about me
My name's Chris so ....
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy the photographs as much as did taking them!
To me wedding photography is much more than turning up and taking a few great photos.
If you’re considering me as your wedding photographer, then here’s my chance to sell myself. Please allow me to show you how I approach things, what I believe in, and perhaps - maybe, even convince you I’m a good guy to invite to your wedding. I'm sure you'd like to know a little more about the person you'll potentially spend a large amount of your wedding day with. If that sounds fair, then please read on ...
The planning process is important to me. It allows me to really get to know my couples and build a genuine connection with them prior to the big day. My style is guided by my surroundings; each wedding has its own story. I love to capture it all, from the still moments of intimacy, the fleeting (often fast!) first kiss, the passing glances, the large embrace with the family, and more—all of which make for unique and lasting visual memories for you to experience again in the future.
Inspiration & Happiness
When I’m not taking photos, my happiness comes from my family, meeting new people, travelling (to anywhere but usually Spain ), good tea, fast cars, people watching, hot sauce, film cameras, music, sunsets, laughing, sport, Spain.
My Style & Approach
I stay true to my own style and believe the most valuable and timeless photography is created with honest emotion, thoughtful composition and beautiful light, all fused into a single fleeting moment. I probably shoot fewer frames than many, but try to think about each image just a little more. I'll provide you with a set of timeless images that will look as beautiful and relevant in fifty years as they do today. So if you are looking for smoke bombs, pictures through frames and prism effects I might not be the right guy for you.
A Very Particular Look & Feel
I’m drawn to creating classic black and white imagery and endearing colour images with perfect natural hues and gorgeous skin tones that I know my clients will love and appreciate. Oh, and while we're on the subject of taking pride in your work, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear I don't outsource the editing of your photos. From start to finish I’m emotionally connected to your photos at every stage.
Clients & Connection
Having a connection with my couples is essential. From connection comes trust. I photograph weddings from the small and intimate, to large and boisterous and everything in between. But in my opinion, the best photographs are created when solid trust and connection exists with my couples, together with an appreciation for the timeless and creative style I strive for. My photography isn’t about location or venues or dresses. It’s about people. And all the individual character and emotions that come with that. The venues, location and dress are the props!
I’d love to tell you I’m a great guy to invite to your wedding, but I can’t. It wouldn’t be right of me. Let’s face it, I’m more than a little biased here. It’s for you to decide!
And that’s exactly the way it should be. Because, it’s about much more than turning up and taking a few great photos.
