Hey there, thanks for stopping by! So I'm Chris and I'm a photographer living in Pencoed, Bridgend, in South Wales. I'm a wedding photographer, a Cadbury Twirl/chocolate orange addict, a gin connoisseur, and one of those annoying people who can quote every Friends episode off by heart. "I’m not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?"

In September 2017 I myself got married to my beautiful wife Lois (that's us in the photo above, on our weddding day) so I know EXACTLY how you feel trying to find a wedding photographer for your big day who matches your style, plans and personality. And before you ask - no, I didn't photograph my own wedding!

We met in 2014, on Tinder (yup!) and got married in Croatia (Dubrovnik to be exact - the town where they film Game of Thrones). And as we like to do things a bit differently, Lois actually walked down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme! Seriously!

In the other photo above you can see our little cat Lola who we added to our family last year. She's a Scottish Fold and expect to see a lot of her on my Instagram stories! I was never EVER a cat person, but after much pursuading from Lois I finally caved in and we got her and now she is queen of the house!

As for me, I'm rarely found without my camera and absolutely love being behind the lens... but hate being in front of it. Yes, I'm a camera-shy photographer. I shoot weddings because I love authentic photography and I love people-watching, and what better place to photograph people being happy and genuine than at a wedding! Read more about my approach here.

Outside of photography:

The amazing South Wales sunsets are my favourite thing in the world!

I f*cking love fancy dress nights out. Over the years I've dressed up as: Stewie Griffin from Family Guy, Marv from Home Alone, Bret Hitman Hart, KISS, Michael Jackson, The Riddler, Kurt Cobain, and many more.

You can usually find me listening to the Pixies, The Midnight, Nirvana, The Smiths, Otis Redding, or a movie soundtrack on vinyl... or binge-watching It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Friends or Twin Peaks... or re-watching The Silence of the Lambs or True Romance for the 1,354th time. I also spend too much time making Spotify playlists.

I spend WAAAAY too long scrolling through Netflix trying to deciding what to watch.

Currently binging on Netflix: 'The Last Dance' and 'Dark' and ALL the 90's thrillers!

I also love all things retro and vintage: my record player, record collection, my original Gameboy, Mega Drive and Polaroid cameras.

As you read this, chances are that I'm sipping on a cup of tea, eating custard creams and sending friends random Stone Cold Steve Austin gifs.
