When asked for wedding photography style, I always give one definite answey - mixed. My shooting stile is aunique mix of fine art photography, photojournalism and documentary.
I always try to shoot elegant and timeless photos and steer clear of any fashion "trends".
Mixing a take control overeverything with a fly-on-the wall aproach works really well during the organised chaos of the wedding day. Photographing the family portraits requires lots of bossing people around while being quiet and invisible in the church is crucial for keeping the vicars happy.
Besides the morning preparations and the “artsy” session after the ceremony, if you opt for one, you will barely notice me or my second photographer during the wedding. This approach really helps me capture precious moments and genuine emotions, relaxes you, the guest and smooths out the whole wedding photography experience.
I heard a saying early in my career that a wedding shouldn’t be an all consuming photoshoot with a wedding attached to it. It is your day and you should enjoy it fully with minimal interruptions for posed photos.
I love meeting new brides and grooms-to-be over cofee and going over all the details of the wedding plan. It is very important to have a total confidence in your wedding photographer before the wedding to prevent any unnecessary stress on the big day. Meeting in person can decide whether we are good fit for each other as well!
That doesn’t mean we won’t do some art photos of the two of you after the ceremony, but I promise – it’ll be quick and painless. Or we can skip it altogether – the choice is yours!

We LOVED Chip! He photographed our wedding in April, and also did our engagement shoot last year. We felt so comfortable throughout the whole process - he made us and our guests feel relaxed and happy around the camera. It didn't feel like we had a photographer at our wedding - Chip was one of our guests, and became a friend. Thank-you so much!

The photos are amazing, we're so happy with them! We are so glad to choose Chip to shoot our wedding. We clicked instantly when we met and my gut feeling was right - the wedding day was smooth and the images are better than we expected! Thanks!

Thanks for the hard work! I know it wasn't the easiest weddign to shoot because of me being so emotional, but the result is fantastic!!! We had such a good rapport with friends and family about the whole experience! Highly recommended, we'll be in touch soon! Thanks again!!!
