Hello I’m Chris, a photographer based in Leicester and London.
I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings all over the United Kingdom and Europe, from London to Paris and lots more in between.
My route into photography was a rather unusual one. I spent the first 10 years in the Royal Navy working on submarines as an electrical engineer. When I discovered the Photography branch in the Royal Navy I applied for a transfer and have never looked back. As a Royal Navy photographer I travelled the world shooting in some of the most arduous conditions, from the Antarctic cold of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands to the heat of the Gulf and Iraq. (Even the most inclement weather on your wedding day will not be a problem for me!)
Throughout my career I have photographed a wide variety of people from celebrities & models to children, animals and many interesting characters on a daily basis. A recent highlight for me in 2013 was the National Portrait Gallery’s acquisition of my Sir Ranulph Fiennes portrait for their collection. You can be assured that I am accomplished at getting great photographs from even the most self conscious and camera shy. My military organisation has set me in good stead for ensuring that the photography of your day runs smoothly and efficiently whilst I capture those precious shots at a moments notice and without intrusion to you or your guests. As a naturally warm & friendly person I aim to make your experience a fun, natural and enjoyable one. After all, it is a privilege to capture the unique memories of your day for you to treasure.
