IT'S ME

IT'S HAPPENING!!!

YOU'RE OFFICIALY GETTING MARRIED!

I'm so glad you have made it this far, it means my work resonates with you and that's important! 

Your day is all about the two of you, showing your love in your own way. I cannot wait to hear what you have planned, and how I can help bring your special day to life.

"Chris is who you want at your wedding. It's as simple as that. When we first started planning ours, we really had no idea what we wanted it to be, but photos are incredibly important to me. I knew I wanted candid, and we knew we didn't want a big, traditional wedding. I never expected to find someone who specialises in exactly that!"

So, my names Chris, I like to keep life fun and interesting. It should be right? Nothing brings me more than joy than capturing the authentic moments between two people.
 

But, I do put the camera down!

Me and my beautiful girlfriend Paris like to spend our time traveling, exploring and eating. Like, we are serious foodies. That being said, there may be less traveling moving forwards as our baby boy Rupert was born last year! 

I love to get out and do things that take me out of my comfort zone. 

My most recent adventure was skydiving. I learnt a lot from throwing myself out of a plane at 15,000ft. 

Firstly, no one looks stylish when their falling from a plane. 

Secondly, my hairline is not what it used to be. 

Finally, I learned that it's the small fleeting moments in life that mean the most to us. The whole experience lasted 60 seconds, but I experienced more in those 60 seconds than I did for the rest of that holiday. 

 Your wedding day is a small fleeting moment in your life. Your day will pass by in what feels like 60 seconds. It will all be over before you know it. You and your partner should be present in the moment.

Let me focus on capturing the photos that will allow you to relive it all over again. 

 

 For your entertainment, I will let you live my 60 seconds again... Enjoy!

SO WHO AM I?

AS YOU'VE PROBABLY GUESSED BY NOW, IM NOT YOUR STANDARD WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.

WHAT'S MY APPROACH?

SO YEAH, I HATE BEING IN FRONt OF THE CAMERA JUST AS MUCH As YOU...

Don't worry, we all get nervous in front of the camera!

I personally become very aware of my hands and I don't know where to put them.

My approach is all about movement, no awkward posing. I'll get you spinning, jumping, laughing, spraying champagne, and letting off smoke bombs.

I pride myself of creating a connection with each of my couples before the big day. So, that when the couples shoot comes around, it's time to have some fun and not feel anxious. 

P.S I won a high score on a pinball machine, it unexpectedly took my photo and it's by far the biggest achievement of my life. But, it shows you how goofy I look when someone takes my photo.

SO, WHAT'S THIS THING GOING TO COST?

IM SUPER GLAD YOU'VE MADE IT THIS FAR, IT MEANS YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE and WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT MY PRICES FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY!

In order to give you my best I only take on a maximum of 35 weddings per year. 

This means I don't spread myself too thin, allowing me to turn up to your wedding refreshed, and on my game.

"Undoubtedly, a wedding photographer is a large cost of a wedding but when we saw our photos, they are something we will cherish forever and moments we can never get back. So having someone who captured them so perfectly made us beyond happy. And honesty made us feel that every single penny was worth it."

FREAQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • DO WE RECEIVE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?
    Nope, I go through all of them and pick out the best of the best. I then edit them up in my signature style, before sending them your way. You can usually expect to receive between 500 - 900 depending on how much is happening on your day.
  • HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY ON THE DAY?
    From the morning prep until the party! I'm there all day. I put rough timings on my packages, but I work best when I capture the day in its entirety. Unlimited package is up to 12 hours of coverage, however If you need me to stay beyond 12 hours its an additional £250 per hour.
  • WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
    After your wedding, you will receive some sneak peeks within a few days. You can expect to receive your full gallery in 8-12 weeks depending on the time of season. If you purchased the express edits, you will receive your full gallery within 2 weeks.
  • HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL FOR A WEDDING?
    My full day package includes travel across most of England and Wales. If your wedding is based in London, South Coast & Scotland, there is an additional £300 travel expense to cover accommodation and to ensure I'm there on time and feeling fresh on the day. *If your wedding requires a stay in overnight accommodation, this fee may be applied.
  • WILL OUR PHOTOS BE IN COLOUR OR BLACK & WHITE?
    I edit the majority of your gallery in colour, some images just lend themselves to a black & white edit. You should expect to receive up to 20% of the edits in black & white.
  • CAN WE PRINT AND SHARE THE PHOTOS?
    Yes of course you can. You have full rights to download, print and share to your hearts content. Please just don't sell the images, as I do retain the copyright to allow me to share them on social media and on my website.
  • HOW MUCH IS THE BOOKING FEE?
    To secure your date, I take a booking fee of £500 (or 50% of the total fee for bookings under £1000) and your contract must be signed (electronically).
  • WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK?
    I do book up quickly so I advise getting in touch as soon as you have your venue confirmed. I tend to have my diary open 2 years in advance. I like to work at least 6 months in advance of a wedding to allow us plenty of time to get to know each other and plan out those details. That being said, I have planned a wedding within 30 days before, so do get in touch for any last minute plans.
  • WHEN DO WE PAY YOU?
    All payments above £1500 are split into 3 payment. First the boking fee. Second 50% of the balance is due 4 months prior to the wedding. The final balance is due 1 month before the day. This payment structure helps my couples spread out the payment, and it also allows me to cover any necessary business expenses.
  • WHEN DO YOU TAKE BREAKS, AND WHEN DO YOU EAT?
    I take a break when the wedding breakfast is served and this is when I kindly ask that you feed me too, so I can crack on afterwards!
  • WHAT TIME DO YOU ARRIVE?
    Depends on your package. "Made with northern love" package: Covering at least 1 hour of morning preparations. "The full Monty" package: Covering at least 2 hours of morning preparations.
  • WHO IS YOUR SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
    I only use established wedding photographers. This is to ensure the standard of work remains high.
