I think wedding photography portraits sessions are great fun! Honestly forget what you think you know about having your photograph taken before your wedding day!
According to Wikipedia lifestyle photography is “a style of portrait / people photography which aims to capture and document real-life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday”. Photographers every day are advertising sessions as lifestyle photography, but, are totally missing the mark in my opinion.
My sessions are firstly fun. You’ll laugh, joke, goof around and you’ll be encouraged to be yourself.
Secondly, you’ll end the session relaxed and optimistic. Excited even. Excited to see your collection of imagery that we’ve created together! Within 72 hours you’ll receive a link to your beautiful online gallery, where you’ll see a fantastic collection of relaxed, and real photography.
We encourage people to be themselves on the shots, I’m really looking for a “muddy boots, messy hair” vibe for these shoots so don’t worry about breaking out the finest threads, come prepared for a ramble!
I find that by encouraging you to just be yourselves I can create work that is authentic and true.
But don’t just take my word for it, we’ll just let these lovely couples wax lyrical about us.
“We had a fantastic time with Chris at our pre-wedding photo shoot in our wellies! We had never done anything like that before and he put us at ease immediately by being his wacky, enthusiastic self: the personality that won us over at the ‘Save the Date’ wedding fair. He has an innate ability of gauging what couples are comfortable with and what dispositions reflect the true character and essence of a relationship. We cannot recommend Chris highly enough and we have absolute faith in him when it comes to capturing our big day!”

“Me and my partner had our engagement shoot with Chris and loved it!
The photos are amazing, and we get so many compliments on them! I must admit before we went, we both felt anxious about being in front of the camera in a park, my partner actually hates having his photo took, but it was brilliant!
Chris made us feel at ease, made us laugh and captured some lovely pictures, and we both came away very happy with the experience and would fully recommend having a photo shoot with Chris – you won’t find anyone better!
We can’t wait for him to shoot our wedding next summer.”
