Hi, I'm Chris. I'm a Derbyshire wedding photographer, surrounded by the amazing landscapes of Derbyshire and the Peak District. With the added bonus of being in the middle of the country, it also makes covering weddings around the UK a piece of cake!

    You'll notice that there's a very natural feel to the images here. This has a lot to do with my approach to photographing weddings. You might hear labels such as 'reportage' or 'documentary wedding photography' thrown about the place quite often and it's easy to get lost in a world of labels. The main thing is that you find a photographer who works in a style that suits you.

    At your wedding, I'm unobtrusive, but not invisible. I won't just skirt around the edges of your wedding. I'll be in amongst your guests, making sure those memories are caught, and creating real 'I was there' images. The sort of photograph that when you look back on them in years to come, you'll remember the sounds, the smells and just what it felt like to be there.

    I read a lot and am a big movie fan, so the art of telling a story has become an important part of how I photograph a wedding. I won't spend hours photographing your shoes or cuff links, instead I'll focus on the people and the genuine moments that all fit together to tell the story of your wedding day.

Wedding Photographer across Derbyshire, Yorkshire and the UK.

Based in Derby but covering the East Midlands, UK and Europe

There was a time when wedding photographers would work out of a studio on their local high street and people would pop in, have a chat and book them to shoot their wedding. Most would usually only shoot weddings that were local to their studio. These days, with the mighty internet now fully entwined with our daily lives it means engaged couples can now find a photographer who lives the other end of the country, but who fits their criteria for a wedding photographer. They can even have face to face chats with them before the wedding from the comfort of their own home. It’s amazing really, when you think about it.

The point that I was getting to was that although I live in Derby and shoot a fair number of weddings in Derbyshire each year I also photograph weddings all across the country, too. The past two years alone have seen me jetting off to such glamourous wedding destinations as the Netherlands, France and…erm…Sheffield. Seriously though, back here in the UK, I work up and down the country photographing weddings; from Cornwall to the Lake District, from Abersoch to Lowestoft. I love travelling and seeing new places, so the further away, the better!

So if you’re wondering whether or not I’ll travel to your wedding, the answer is a resounding, yes! For answers to a few more commonly asked questions, head over to my FAQ page. If you’d like to find out if I’m available for your wedding date, send me a message via my contact form and tell me a little about yourselves and what you have planned for your wedding.

People say the nicest things…

“It was an absolute pleasure to have you there on our wedding day – it was like having two more friends there with us to share our day. You are both so very talented and creative, not to mention hard working and passionate about what you do. We’re so pleased that we chose you to shoot our wedding! We have shared the photos with our family and they are blown away by how good they are. I lost count how many times we all said ‘Ahh I forgot about that!’ or ‘Wow I didn’t even realise anyone was watching when that happened!”
