Darlington based wedding photographer covering Yorkshire and the North East.
Chris was very amenable from the start. We booked Chris during lockdown and from our first chat via email to the wedding day Chris delivered everything and more than we expected. We met him once before the big day to look around the venue. He had some ideas but was willing to listen and take on board what we wanted too. We only wanted 20 staged photos and left the rest for Chris to take as he wanted. We ended up with 667 photos telling a story of our wedding day from the beginning to our first dance. We hardly knew Chris was there taking photos. He was unobtrusive but friendly. The guests commented on how friendly he was too. We would highly recommend Chris. Jan & Chris Wiseman
Jan and Chris married at Grays Court Hotel, York, North Yorkshire in September 2021.
I’m a journalist and was recommended to Chris’s work by a colleague who was familiar with his stuff. I actually needed someone to take pictures at our wedding but I wanted a less formal approach and being a journo I also wanted to put work to a fellow ‘news bod’. From the first contact, I knew we had made the right move in getting Chris on board. He was easy to communicate with, knew what we were looking for and after our first meeting with him we knew that he was right for what we wanted. On the day of our wedding he couldn’t do enough for us in terms of making people relaxed for the photos and he certainly captured the essence of our special day. The photos he took were absolutely outstanding and we will have a difficult job choosing those we want to put in an album. We were so impressed with Chris’s work and his professionalism and have no hesitation in recommending him. I hope I can work with him again professionally in the not too distant future too.

Andy and Frances married in August 2019 at St Augustine's RC Church in Darlington.
We booked Chris to take our wedding photographs in July. Chris listened to our brief of wanting natural photographs that showed the day as it happened. He captured all of our guests and we have some fabulous memories of our perfect day. We would certainly recommend Chris to capture the moments you want to keep forever. Thanks Chris

Chris is an excellent photographer, we found him extremely easy to work with. His photographs are of superb quality, we are very happy that we chose him to photograph our wedding as these photos need to last a lifetime. I couldn't recommend Chris enough to anyone!
Rob and Chloe married in June 2019 at the Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham city.
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding than Chris. Despite horrendous weather and difficult lighting conditions Chris has produced a perfect set of photos. Both the posed and candid photos are wonderful. Chris was a pleasure to work with - he made us feel at ease and he blended in so well people didn't notice he was there, meaning the photos are so natural. He met us at the venue a month or so before the wedding to do a recce, worked unbelievably hard on the day and we received the photos less than a week after the wedding. Thank you so much Chris!
Peter and Jenny married in December 2018 at Bolton Castle near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.
Chris has just captured our Wedding Day and the photos are simply amazing. Chris was unbelievably professional from start to finish, capturing the full day and providing us with memories that will last a life time. Such a warm, friendly and wonderful man who I would fully recommend.
Alan and Natasha married in December 2018 at Gateshead Civic Centre.
We had an amazing day with Chris. He was so kind and did anything to meet our needs. He had great banter with me and the girls when getting ready and his creative attention to detail was great. We are so glad we took up his suggestion to get pictures taken on the Bridge in Newcastle, the photos are great and it gave us time away alone.
Lauren and Christine married in September 2018 at the County Hotel in Newcastle
Chris covered our wedding at Jesmond Dene House and gave us a perfect mix of candid and ‘official’ photos. On the day he was so professional and he did the best job of finding the greatest shots and made it so easy and enjoyable for us to have our photos taken! We got the photos sent over after only a few days and we are beyond thrilled with the results. We can’t wait to show everyone! Massive thanks to Chris for capturing our special day!
Sarah and Stephen married in September 2018 at Jesmond Dene House
Chris recently took photos at our wedding and we are absolutely delighted with the results. During the ceremony he has captured some very natural shots and we didn't even notice he was there. Chris guided us during the group shots/bride & groom shots and and ensured we got the best photographs possible. He was the total professional and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Chris, he has given us lasting memories of our special day.
David and Tracy married in June 2018 at Newcastle Civic Centre
Chris shot our Slaley Hall wedding. His professionalism, workrate and dedication were second to none. As a journalist, I work with photographers and Chris is without a doubt one of the best I've met. His eye for a photograph is unmatched. His artistic shots were beautiful, but it was his natural shots perfectly captured everyone's face and the mood of the day, and they made our wedding.
And the biggest compliment I could personally pay to him is that I barely noticed he was there. There was no fussing, but managed to put everyone's minds at ease when he did need to organise group shots. I honestly couldn't be happier with what Chris did. The pictures came back last week and we have not stopped looking at them. Chris truly is a master of his craft, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second in recommending him to anybody - in fact, I already have.
Ian and Lizzie married in October 2017 at Slaley Hall, Northumberland
Chris photographed our wedding at Lumley castle which was a small intimate affair and he totally captured special moments between us and also of our guests. We hardly knew he was there.. He put us all at ease and got on really well with everyone. Could not recommend Chris more highly. Thank you Chris for capturing our day so perfectly.
Iain and Jackie married in August 2017 at Lumley Castle, Chester-le-Street, Co Durham
Chris was brilliant from start to finish. He was unobtrusive on the day but all the photographs with great results.
If you're looking for a professional photographer and a fantastic service Chris is your man.
Steve and Natalia married in August 2017 at Fountains Abbey
Having previously worked with Chris on a professional basis, I already knew just how talented a photographer he was. He was our first and only choice for our wedding. Chris’ photographs really capture the raw emotions, reactions and feelings of the day. Some of my favourite pictures are the reactions of our guests and myself during the speeches - they are so natural and really do encapsulate the moment. Chris is so professional in his work. He met with us at our venue beforehand and listened to all the things we wanted; he shared his advice and experience with us so we could get the best photographs possible. Many of our guests commented on how polite and professional Chris was; his brilliant sense of humour also added to the exciting ‘getting ready’ atmosphere beforehand and the bridal party loved having him around. Chris was more than happy to take the ‘traditional and formal’ shots we wanted but then took hundreds of natural photos which really do capture the essence of the day. I couldn’t believe how quickly we got our photographs back. Chris personally delivered the pictures to us within days of the wedding and we had hundreds of gorgeous photographs to pick from. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris and we thank him very much!
