Most importantly, I keep things simple for my couples so you don’t have to overthink what you’re doing —the results are beautiful, natural memories that you’ll love once you become Mr & Mrs. Strictly no cheese or awkward posing!

“you aren’t expected to stand like robots for his shots”
“We used Chris last year for our
wedding and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He’s a very polite and likeable man that takes the time to get to know all the guests and make everyone feel at ease. You aren’t expected to stand like robots for his shots. He will catch you at your most natural authentic positions which makes for a much better picture. The only difficulty is trying to squeeze all these stunning pictures into one album”
A wedding is one of (if not) THE biggest of events for couples and their family and friends to attend. You just can’t appreciate how much effort goes into planning a wedding until it’s your turn. You’ll be shocked.
It’s really important for you to identify a list of wedding photographers that will match your taste & vibe that you want.
Choosing a Wedding Photographer in Essex is not an easy task, but with the right understanding of what’s available
to you, the challenge can be made simpler. Once you’ve researched wedding photography styles, you’ll be in a much better position to nail your perfect photographer.

Wedding Photography in Essex
First, it is important to know that photography is an art and the photographer is the artist. Therefore, like in any form of art, the end product will rely heavily on the skills possessed by the artist.
As such, couples should consider Essex wedding photographers with a proven track record and the ability to perform cinematic wedding photography.
Cinematic Wedding Photography in Essex is a technique that makes the photo look like it was lifted out of a movie scene. A normal wedding day photo won’t have the same color grading or style that we’ve become accustomed to on the ‘net’ in 2020. It incorporates silky soft `Bokeh’ or smoothing of areas in the photograph that are not so important to the scene.
The phenomenon helps the human eye focus on what the photographer deems important. Many photographers have become `insta-famous’ using this cinematic approach. One example during a wedding day that brides love when photographers use this technique is when they’re having their portraits taken.
It helps to smooth skin and reduce blemishes, therefore, when choosing a professional wedding photographer, consider the artistic skills that they possess. Check their full body of work for consistency.
Capturing emotions is an art form in itself & not an easy thing to successfully pull off. Expectations can be quite low for a run of the mill photographer in Essex to achieve. When you look at a photo, you should be able to feel what the person in the photo is feeling or what the photographer intends you to feel.
The photographs should be a living reminder of the atmosphere created at any given time – a memory that can be brought back to life instantly (even twenty years later).
Simplicity is a term I use to successfully capture emotions & personalities in my wedding photography. Simplicity in my world means that when you hire a wedding photographer in Essex, you’re receiving a professional that’s not in your face, like the paparazzi stalking a celebrity. The most experienced photographers can blend into the back-ground for the most part and are able to capture authentic moments on camera unobtrusively.
Wedding Photographers using this relaxed approach can put you at ease and allow you to enjoy your day with your guests. If the Photographer makes you look like your playing a game of twister then he/she is over thinking the situation. More often than not, poses that are natural & free flowing turn out the best, avoiding any awkwardness along the way.
Photography should not be a stressful affair as long as you hire the right style for your requirements. An Essex photographer that ticks all the boxes above will certainly not disappoint, although it is just one style that I personally prefer to use.
