Chris & Rachel

I have known Rachel and her family for many years, she has been my sisters best friend forever! So you can imagine how happy and honoured I was to be asked to be her wedding photographer.  I have also done a couple of shoots with Rachel and Chris’s beautiful daughter Mirabelle over the past few years.

I arrived at the beautiful Cressbrook Hall on Sunday 26th August, I was so excited to photograph here, the venue is surrounded by the most beautiful gardens and amazing views. When I arrived, the venue was busy with preparations so I made the most of capturing the beautiful details that had already been set up. Rachels mum Jo, was in charge of the preparations while the bride and bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done at home prior to arriving at the venue.

Rachel looked amazing, Her dress was so perfect for her. Their daughter Mirabelle wore the cutest flower girl dress and all the bridesmaids looked stunning in there cranberry coloured dresses.

Chris and his best man, Will,  got ready in a different part of the venue both wearing matching suits which also tied in perfectly with the colour scheme.

After the ceremony me, Rachel and Chris went for there couple shots, due to the weather we were allowed access to some areas inside Cressbrook hall. We didn’t let the rain put a downer on the day, Rachel and Chris were troopers and let me make the most of the gorgeous outdoors of their venue.

After there wedding breakfast Rachel and Chris had a very exciting announcement to make once their evening guests had arrived, they are expecting their second child early next year and thought it would be nice to do a gender reveal to there guests. It was so exciting as Rachel and Chris didn’t know the gender yet either, it was such a special part of the day. It’s a BOY! CONGRATULATIONS!

It was a stunning wedding day & Rachel and Chris were the perfect couple.

I am so happy to share their day with you.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Challis!

New Logo!!

I am happy to reveal my brand new logo designed by Charlotte Bolton. I have wanted to changed my logo for a long time now as I didn’t feel it looked very professional or really gave my brand a identity.

I am thrilled with what Charlotte has created,  like that it goes well with my work as I focus a lot of my work and portrait sessions outside.

I feel like I can now put effort into expanding my brand into some more promotional material like business cards and flyers now I have my identity.


Back to University..

As I enter my final year at Huddersfield University studying Photography, as part of my final year assignment I have been ask to create a blog to represent my professional practice, As I normally stick to my Facebook photography page I thought I would try something different and create a blog site on here.

Next week will be my first week back at university after completing a placement year working for Amie Parsons Photography, I feel I have changed a lot as a photography since the start of my placement and feel that I am going into my final year with fresh ideas and a different attitude towards university than I have had the previous 2 years.

I feel a lot of progression has been made in photography and I have worked with a lot of clients over the past year both with and with Amie. I have been focusing my work in portraits and also dog photography which is my preferred job. I am hoping that regualry updating my blog will help me build more of a client base where people can always see what I am up to with my work.

I am hoping to be blogging a few times a week with regular updates and research of my final year both of my FMP and dissertation.
