Ok, so there are a whole lot of wedding photographers out there, right? Here’s why I think you should choose me to photograph your wedding…

The sky’s the limit
It’s your big day, and with any luck you’ll only be doing this once! Why not do it properly? Most photographers limit their coverage of your day to a certain amount of time, or make you pay more for extended coverage. My wedding photography includes complete coverage of your day, from when you start getting ready until late into the night. I really enjoy being around for the whole day, if you so wish, and capturing people as they relax and enjoy the reception is possibly my favourite part of the day.

Professional skills and equipment
I’ve been photographing professionally for ten years and have photographed over 100 weddings. I use top-of-the-line Canon cameras and lenses and am constantly upgrading my equipment. Furthermore, I have extra cameras and lenses, so if something is to go wrong on the day, I always have a spare at hand. Your photos will also be backed up to three different places immediately following your wedding, so there’s no chance of your precious photos getting lost or deleted.

Friendly and unobtrusive
I get on well with all sorts of different people and really enjoy meeting the participants and guests at each wedding. I like to get to know a couple beforehand, so we can all feel relaxed on the day and although I might occasionally ask you to pose in a certain way, most of the time I’ll blend into the background, and capture you and your guests acting completely naturally.

Adaptive and unique photography
Take a look through my portfolio and you will see that many of my photos are slightly different to the norm. I’m constantly looking for unique angles, and particularly enjoy taking photos of couples in slightly quirky locations! During most weddings I’ve shot, the bridal party have got right into the photo shoot, and will often come up with cool ideas for photos. I really enjoy adapting my photography to suit the needs and ideas of each unique couple.

I love it!
I feel really privileged to be doing something I enjoy so much. The happiness at every wedding is infectious and I always find myself caught up in the excitement of it all. It’s a pleasure to meet so many new and interesting people and to share in their big day; and it’s an honour to be responsible for recording all those special moments.

Thank you so much. The photos look incredible. We cannot thank you enough for the day. We tried to keep it as relaxed as possible and you played a huge part in that. We are so happy with the photos and we really appreciate everything.

I just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with the photos. The group and formal photos are lovely and you have captured some beautiful moments – they are real treasures. We loved your manner, your professional and respectful attitude at the church, the fact you stayed right throughout which we regard as extremely generous of you and your very genuine and obvious enjoyment of playing such an important role in Anna and Hoani’s wedding. I know they, and all of us, felt very comfortable with you, and really did enjoy meeting you.

WOW what can we say! They are stunning!. The way you captured the light, feelings and emotions are more than we could have asked for. Mum sent me a text saying…”Chris’s pics are awesome. They are each like a piece of art and together tell an exciting story”. We totally agree.
