Our story

Hey! Thank you for stopping by. I’m Chris, I live just outside of Belfast with my best friend and better half, Colleen. We have an extremely cute and hyperactive 8 year old girl together, our partially sighted golden retriever, Molly <3 Being huge animal lovers we are both vegan and a quick flick through our instagram can attest to what massive foodies we are! Aside from suffering from a severe case of wanderlust and the insatiable desire to jump on a plane at a moments notice, I consider myself extremely lucky as I love what I do..

I want to make imagery that people connect with. Honest and authentic images of you and that one person you’ve chosen to share this journey with. To capture all those in between moments that make you, you. To create images that in years to come, you can look back on knowing it’s an honest reflection of your story and the love you share. Working with people who are as passionate as I am about creating honest and creative imagery is something truly special and being given the creative freedom to capture that bond, while you are surrounded by the people that mean the most to you in the world, that’s what it’s all about.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”   – Aaron Siskind

I set out to document your story, just the way it is. No contrived images or series of posed shots. Just the authentic story and all the raw emotions of your day and all of its perfect imperfections through natural, honest and creative imagery. Something that you will cherish now and long after your wedding. I love nothing more than to share stories of like minded couples from around the world, whether you’re getting married on the side of a mountain in Iceland or registry office in London, we would love to hear from you so if you think we could be a match get in touch! 

You can keep up to date with our adventures on all the usual channels and for a bit more imagery based goodness here’s what 2016 looked like for us, well some of it!
