Full Description
Most of the pictures I deliver from a wedding day will be the naturally captured moments. Moments that tell the story of the day. I will work in the background to capture as many of these moments as possible. Later in the day I will create some portraits that look modern and vibrant. Making there most of your venue in the day and at night. I have an option to have two photographers on the day which gives even more scope to capture natural pictures of guests and different angles. Plus the addition of getting ready pictures of a second person. Here's what some of my past couples have said.... “Chris was fab throughout the whole process. Right from instructing him we felt like we were his no1 clients. His personal service cannot be faltered. We were both amazed at all the hard work and effort he did on the day to capture our special moments. Family and friends are still singing his praises seven months on. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I actually do every opportunity I get.” – “Not only is he professional, reliable and a thoroughly nice guy but the images captured on the day and the wedding album and cd of images produced were stunning and captured the day just beautifully. I would and do recommend him to all I know and am now a follower of his work as he never fails to amaze. I would also say he goes above and beyond for what he actually charged and I was very impressed by the costs”. – James & Amber “He was the first one there and the last one there. I hardly noticed he was around and he will contort himself in any position to get a great shot. Very imaginative.” – Chris & Claire “Chris has an amazing eye for detail. His pictures are outstanding. My daughter and I, with Chris’s help made a surprise video for my husband to be played jst after the speeches. It was fantastic and went down a treat. People always mention it. We only ever had one person in mind to photograph our special day, Chris" - Craig & Katie

We couldn’t recommend Chris highly enough
It didnt us too long to decide on a wedding photographer as soon as we saw Chris’ work. We met with him and knew we had made the right choice. Chris was amazing on the day, he arrived early and spent time with my wife and bridesmaids and their prep in the morning. They were able to just get on with things as Chris captured some amazing shots that really set the scene for the whole day. Nothing was too much trouble for him and his colleague Louise and we felt completely comfortable with Chris’ direction of how to get some really great shots. We arrived back from honeymoon to the full gallery and when we sat down with family they were blown away by how good the photos were. We couldn’t recommend Chris highly enough - if you have Chris as your photographer you will not be disappointed.

We were delighted by the end products
Chris did our wedding photography in July this year. We met him at a function outside Leeds back in 2016 and he was our first choice when deciding on a photographer for our wedding. We were so pleased when he accepted to come down to Northamptonshire/Bedford and we were not disappointed! His calm and helpful manner made the photo sessions very easy and we liked all his ideas. We were delighted by the end products, which came through promptly a few weeks later. Thank you Chris and your second shooter for capturing our magical day.

I haven’t seen the photographs yet but I already know that they are going to be amazing! Chris is so professional yet personable and I am so pleased that we were able to book him for our wedding (as I know he is in high demand!). I couldn’t recommend Chris highly enough! Thank you for capturing our special day and I’m so excited to see the results of your hard work.

Highly recommended
Chris and Louise are amazing photographers. Professional is what they both do best. Nothing was too much trouble. Even standing outside in 3’degrees to get the sparkler photo that we wanted. Both lovely people and definitely our best choice! Highly recommended x

Chris is THE BEST photographer and nicest guy
I can't believe im only just writing a review?! What can i say... from the moment we planned to get married Chris was my first port or call (even before setting a date) Chris isnt only THE BEST photographer but the nicest guy! Kieren isnt a lover of the camera and we both wanted to feel comfortable with someone... Chris and his assistant Louise made us feel totally at ease. They both worked their absolute backsides off all day, never missing a shot! ...
