Hi, I'm Chris

Birmingham & Midlands based Wedding Photographer

I’m known for my wicked sense of humour, tattoos, eclectic style and generally being an awesome human being. I live for travel, hanging out with friends, craft beer and cold coffee.

Since going full time with my wedding business in 2007 I still pinch myself that I get to shoot weddings all over the world with super doper groovy couples. I really do feel like I’m living some sort of a weird dream.

These days I’m living in a cool, gothic inspired house, living out my weird punk rock inspired lifestyle, rocking out on guitar with my band, reading some kinda bad ass shit or playing with my little cockapoo Indy, who is my furry baby – I will fight you if you say she isn’t!

Anyway, that’s my story,

I’d love to hear yours.

How would you describe your style?

I don't do standard wedding photography. I see your photography differently.

Forget posed, sterile and old fashioned imagery, and instead think of colourful, intimate, and beautiful wedding photography.

I grew from a desire to create a more personal type of photography – remarkable imagery and memories, unique to you that turn a wedding into your perfect day.

To put it into context, if I were a band – I’d be AC/DC, The Beatles or the Ramones; I wouldn’t be Westlife or an X Factor winner. I'm far more artistic rather than manufactured and bland.

What do you love about weddings?

I`m a people person - a chatterbox, and have a reputation for always cracking bad jokes and generally being abit daft. And wedding photography is the perfect foil for my personality, I love putting people at ease in front of my lens, and then exceeding their expectations with my creativity.

The vast nature of my work is a very documentary and candid approach – so I’m be there to capture every true emotion, every laugh, joke, and yes, even the tears without people knowing it. And I just love delivering this very real, very raw storytelling.

I love creating unique photography that couples cherish forever, and love the honest reactions from my couples when I deliver their wedding photography.

Your Travel policy?

So, you love my work, but you are not getting married in the UK – No problem! Find our more about the Destination Wedding Photography that I offer.

Not much could be more exciting than a destination wedding outside of the UK, there’s a world full of history and beauty out there, including the locations of some of the greatest love stories of all time.

Castles, beaches, small romantic city streets, old town feels or breath-taking vistas. What’s not to love!

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a lot of destination weddings (where the couple get married abroad surrounded by family and friends) and wedding elopements (where the couple disappear just the two of them for a more intimate ceremony) I tend to then shoot portraits afterwards.

Both are brilliant fun.

I love travel and I love shooting destination wedding photography, so destination weddings are a natural and perfect fit for me.

Usually when I shoot a destination wedding, I arrive a few days before so I’m available to shoot rehearsal dinners, pool parties, or family get together’s before the actual big day. Then when the actual wedding day is here, we shoot all day, have an amazing time and then I usually return home the next day.

Over the years I’ve shot destination wedding photography in Jamaica, St Lucia, New York (x 3), Las Vegas (x 2), Cyprus (x 3), Florence, Venice, Slovenia, Sweden (x 2), Iceland and Santorini. The list goes on!

I’m also keen to photograph in some countries that I have never photographed in. So, if you are having a destination wedding which isn’t on my list, please do get in touch and I will put together a personalised quote.

I bring my energy, skill, and passion with me on every shoot, but especially on destination weddings where we will inevitability spend more time together.

I’ll be a massive part of your day and be in the unique position to be able to capture every part of your wedding experience (particularly if we meet at the airport!).

Every environment is different, unique and exciting, allow me to create some awesome memories with you both, memories that you will like and memories you’ll absolutely love.

So, what’s the cost… show me the money you say!

Ok, ok, so the way I work is transparent, you choose the package you want, then add on £500 for European weddings, and £1,250 for Caribbean / North & South American / Asia weddings. This extra cost covers all my additional expenses, I’ll quote you a price and that’ll be the price you pay. The reality is that when you arrange weddings abroad you’ll pay a fortune on resort or local photographers anyway, and usually you’ll be really fortunate if you connect with a photographer over there that understands your wants.

So, you may as well book me and get exactly what you do want!

Made our day even more special

We met Chris at a wedding fair and knew instantly that he was the one for us. This was confirmed after seeing some of the incredible shots he had already captured at the venue where we would be getting married.
Everything was so relaxed and under control, all the way up to our wedding day and then on the day he didn't disappoint.
The informal approach we wanted really worked well, and some of the pictures he managed to get were awesome, and things we would never think about. He made the day far more relaxed for the both of us and really managed to make use of the rain to capture some really cool things, along with his use of light.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of our friends using Chris again, and we think you should too, you will not be disappointed.

Great photos & great friendly service

We found Chris at a Wedding Fayre and were immediate impressed with his style and creativity.
Our wedding has unfortunately been moved to 2021, but we had the pleasure of a portrait shoot with him this month and the photos are SO gorgeous. So happy we picked him and would highly recommend already!
