|Why should I choose Chris
Chambers Photography for my wedding?
As a full time
professional wedding photographer With experience of
photographing hundreds of weddings at venues across the UK and
you can be assured of the quality and professionalism of my
packages and level of service
offered is probably unique amongst wedding photographers. A full
day's attendance ensures that every special moment of your day
is captured as it happens from make up to dancing, breakfast to
fireworks. The informal relaxed nature of the photographs
ensures that you and your guests enjoy the experience without it
becoming a chore whilst at the same time ensuring that all your
photography requirements are met.
By limiting the
number of weddings I photograph each year I can ensure the
same high level of service and quality to all couples. Unlike a
lot of other photographers I only photograph one wedding per day
and anyone booking me for their wedding is safe in the knowledge
that I am the main photographer (Often with a second shooter)
and I don't farm jobs out to other photographers working
on my behalf.
When and how do we see the
Usually your gallery of edited
photographs is online within three days of the wedding,
typically much sooner. Your images also appear in
the blog, usually a couple of days after
the wedding allowing you a sneaky peak.
protected gallery offers you and your guests a chance to view
the images before your proof book is ready. On return from
honeymoon your proof book and slideshow DVD is waiting for you.
Both of these are yours to keep. Don't forget you also have the
option of a screen set up at your evening reception displaying
between thirty and sixty edited images from the day, allowing
you and your guests a look at just some of the images which will
form part of your proofs.
What style of photography do
Typically during the course of
your wedding I will shoot in a number of styles including
reportage (Candid usually with a long lens), traditional
some more contemporary styled images to give you the maximum
choice and variety for your wedding photograph album. The actual
style of photography is determined by the bride and groom and
discussed during the pre-wedding meeting. At the same time we'll
plan in any formal group photos you may require.
We are getting married outside
the Yorkshire Region...
That's no problem at all, in the
last few years I have travelled to Rome, the Lake District, Aberdeen,
North Wales, Plymouth and Bristol to photograph weddings. There
are no additional costs for weddings in West Yorkshire and Cumbria.
Additional costs maybe incurred for weddings outside these
Do you work alone?
Typically for large weekend
weddings I will have an assistant and or a second photographer
with me. Whilst I am working on the formal photographs of any
groups or with the Bride and Groom they will stay with the
guests to continue shooting the informal images.
Can we tailor one of your packages?
The wedding packages on the wedding services page have been
designed to offer a variety of albums, images sizes and prices,
hopefully they cater for all your needs. Tailoring one of the
existing packages to increase the number of pages, enlarge
images or change album style wouldn't be an issue and is
something we could discuss at any time from booking.
