I am Kris, 30 years old, and I have been photographing weddings for 5 years. I run this business with the help of my beautiful and brilliant wife, Jamila.
Jamila is my admin, PA, accountant, assistant, second shooter and the love of my life. All I really do is take photos, she does the hard work!
I consider myself to be one of the most honest photographers you will come across. I genuinely love my job, I have a tremendous passion for weddings, in fact, I began this job shortly after getting hitched myself. I am driven by the desire to give couples the photography that their special day deserves.
I am not a wedding planner, and whilst I have the utmost respect for anyone that is, I'm there to capture what is happening without forcing any unnecessary influence. I am obsessed with details like rings, buttonholes and heirlooms. I love working with awkward, photo-shy couples, it's so easy to get real emotion from them.
Working with couples to get the stunning couple images that show emotion and personality is the best part of the day for me, though I do approach this very differently than you might expect. The most important part of making someone comfortable in front of the camera is the photographers mannerisms. I don't want you to be fake, I don't ant to make you irritable or bored. I work in short amounts of time. I do this as it gives you two valuable positives for your wedding; firstly, I get real, honest reactions which make for amazing images. Secondly, You get ore of your day to eat, drink chat and be merry! Something I ensure I tell every couple is to take advantage of the time I don't spend dragging you around and have 5 minutes peace and solace, it makes the day last a lot longer!
The most important thing for any couple looking for a wedding photographer is that you actually like the photos they produce! Seems straight forward but sadly the industry is flooded with "photographers" looking to make quick money from people who look at the price before they see the photos. I shoot the way I shoot. I won't pretend to be something I am not just to get a booking, I would much rather be the right person for the job, it's far too important of a day.
I price myself to be a viable option for couples who want a stylised, confident and experienced photographer without the over-inflated and complicated pricing that is sadly too common these days.
Basically when it comes to what I do, from the way I shoot to the how I market myself, I just try to be the wedding photographer me and my wife wish we'd had. Clear, distinct style and simple, reasonable pricing.
I love to talk weddings so if you have any questions about any part of your wedding, pop me an email and I will be more than happy to chat weddings with you!
