Hi, we are Chris and Gillian, a husband and wife photography team, specialising in contemporary, relaxed, imaginative, documentary photography. We capture moments in time and provide wonderfulmemories that will last a lifetime. Based in South Gloucestershire, we work throughout the Cotswolds, Somerset, Bristol, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and the South West.
Usually my weddings are around the south west, maybe as far as Oxford. I met Sarah and Brendan at Cora and Tim's wedding last summer (in fact Sarah and Brendan even appear in some of the blog photos)and was persuaded to shoot their wedding all the way up in The Wirral. Well the trip was worth it. The lakeside venue was beautiful, the weather despite a couple of near misses turned out perfect and Sarah & Brendan are awesome! I really loved this one especially and I think the photos reflect it.
After 8 years of working as a family photographer in some of the leading photographic studios, I decided I wanted to branch out on my own and to take my family photography a step further.Photographing families in their homes or at a favourite location makes the whole experience much more personal than I found achievable in studio photography. Children love being in their space and showing me their favourite things, being able to run around outside and play different games whilst I snap away.
Commercial and advertising photographer for industry, education and healthcare clients. I supply high quality photography for advertising, editorial and general communications use.
Whether it's capturing your baby's smile, the twinkle in the eyes of your parents at their 50th wedding anniversary or the joy on a young bridesmaid's face as confetti fills the air, I love being theone who you can rely on to capture your special event so that you can share beautiful memories with your family and friends. I enjoy all aspects of photography and specialise in weddings and events.
I am a wedding photographer who specialise in capturing the story of your big day, moments you will experience during the day and ones you will miss. I believe that weddings are joyous occasions andmy imagery reflects that. I love real candid moments as well as dramatic and artistic photography with bold colours and happy people. I’m very much inspired by my clients’ personalities, so that I can create something fresh and unique each time.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. -Henri Cartier-Bresson I’m Daniel. I’m a photographer, an artist, a dreamer, a believer. AndI’m your friend. Although I have one of the best wedding cameras, giving something beyond what it can capture is more important to me… and you. Your wedding is personal, and so giving my expertise, full attention and heart while photographing it allows me to capture the best memories. It is not enough to just shoot a bundle of photos.
Having trained and qualified as an electrician and then moved into sales, I have always had an interest in photography. Whilst doing photography as a hobby, I trained in Portraiture, Weddingphotography and printing & processing in the darkroom. It was 1994 when I decided to go Professional and specialise in People photography.
