Why I love photography in Chester...

Beautiful Chester Wedding Photography

I have been lucky enough to capture celebrations all over the world, but there is something truly special about photographing weddings in Chester. This charming city is rich in history, beauty and culture, which provides a stunning backdrop for anyone's special day.

One of the things I love about Chester is the variety of venues available. From the grandeur of the Cathedral to the stunning gardens of Grosvenor Pulford Hotel, there is a location to suit every couple's taste and style. The city's mix of modern and traditional architecture also offers unique opportunities for creative and artistic shots.

But it's not just the beautiful setting that makes weddings here so special. I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with so many wonderful couples in this area, each with their own unique love story to tell. It's a privilege to capture the moments of joy, emotion, and laughter that make each day so unique and special.

Overall, there's a certain magic that comes with Chester wedding photography. From the stunning surroundings to the wonderful couples I get to work with, it's an honour to document such a meaningful and unforgettable day.

A little bit about me...

The life of a Chester wedding photographer

Since becoming a full time photographer in 2014, I have captured hundreds of weddings in many different locations and settings, covering a wide range of styles.

I absolutely love being a Chester wedding photographer and I am so grateful to all of my previous couples for letting me be a part of their day.

"I strongly believe that everybody should get the same high quality service regardless of budget"

When I'm not capturing wedding photos (or editing them!), I enjoy spending time with my little family and going on an adventure, taking photos of landscapes around North Wales, especially in Snowdonia national park.

I also love travelling, movies, gaming and a good box set on Netflix!

Chester Wedding Photographer FAQ's

What should I consider when choosing a wedding photographer?

When choosing a wedding photographer, prioritise finding one whose style aligns with your vision for the day. Make sure you get along with them, because comfort and compatibility with the photographer are also crucial. Also, ensure the cost and package options are within your budget.

Once you have shortlisted a few photographers that fit your criteria, take a look at their portfolios and client reviews to gain a better understanding of their work. Arrange a meeting or phone call with them to discuss your wedding day vision, the type of photographs you're looking for and any particular requirements or preferences you may have. A good photographer will be able to offer suggestions and guide you through the process, making it a stress-free and enjoyable experience!

What is your photography style?

My photography style can be best described as natural and timeless. I strive to be in the right place to capture candid moments and real emotions in my photos, rather than posed or forced images. I want my couples to look back on their wedding photos and feel like they are reliving their special day all over again.

What is your pricing structure?

I offer a variety of package options to fit every budget. Please take a look at my pricing page more information on the packages available. If you require a custom package, then get in touch today to discuss your needs!

Do you have any advice for couples who are planning their wedding?

My best piece of advice for couples planning their wedding is to always remember that it's YOUR day! Don't let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn't do, and make sure you do what makes YOU happy. Also, try to relax and enjoy the day as much as possible - it goes by so fast! From the moment you wake up in the morning, until long after your first dance as husband and wife, take it all in and relish every single moment.
