Chris & Cath Wedding Photography


Creating memories that will last a lifetime

THANKS SO MUCH FOR CONTACTING US AND WE ARE SO PLEASED TO HAVE YOU HERE

WE DO NOT TAKE CRINGY PHOTOS NOR DO AWKWARD PHOTOS AND POSES!!

WE ARE GOING TO SHOW YOU BELOW EXACTLY WHAT WE OFFER OUR COUPLES

We know it is really hard to choose a wedding photographer.

You will worry that you won't get on with them, that the photos are rubbish and don't flatter us, that it will take too long to take the group photos.

We want to work with couples who are in love and want to live the rest of their lives together.

You deserve wedding photography that looks and feels like you, and photos that celebrates your marriage – not just your wedding. 

We want to take photos of couples who are having fun and smile like crazy.

This is all about your day and we want to create history for you and give you a record of your day from the start to just after the first dance in a fun and natural way.

We take candid photos and of course the group photos, and we will NOT be in your face!!

So who are we you ask?
Cath Hart and Chris Hobson

We set up the business back in 2018 after Chris retired from being a lawyer and Cath joined Chris as one of our couples were both women and we pondered over a coffee as to which bride should Chris do the getting ready photos for? Well the answer was simple, Chris would do one and Cath the other. Simple and sorted.

We are often referred to as "Law and Order" as we are a retired lawyer and copper and as you can imagine we are organised, plan a lot and we get stuff done.

We met years ago whilst photgraphing sports and from there our friendship grew and over the years we have been following our passion.

Nothing about a wedding fazes us after shooting over 60 weddings and we have been described as a "calming influence" in the midst of so many wedding nerves. This is due to our age and experience and former careers.

As we said above we plan a lot and our favourite saying is 

"IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN YOU PLAN TO FAIL"

and we will not fail you.

PS - we didn't get married at Gretna Green......just checking out the venue!

PPS - check out our availability below and see if we are free on your day.


All day Collection for £999.00

This is our most popular Collection

All Day for getting ready to the first dance

We will be there from the beginning right through to your first dance and about 20 minutes after. We will take photos of both of you, shots of all the details, rings, dress, buttonholes, flowers, groomsmen, bridesmaids, flower girls, food, sweet trolley and everything else

2 photographers - Chris and Cath

The benefit of having 2  is there are 2 of you. We can get shots from all sorts of different angles such as the first look of both of you, 100s of your family and guests and there is no extra charge. A real BOGOF.

Sneak peak within 48 hours

We will pick and edit about 10-15 photos which you can use on social media as we know you will want to post on Facebook and Instagram as soon as you can.

Planning your day

We will zoom with you as many times as necessary and we will visit your venue to check out the light and best places for couple shots.

We are both a bit OCD about this but only because there is one chance at getting this right and we get it right everytime!!

700-900 High res fully edited photos within 7-10 days

We will take anywhere between 6,000 to 10,000 photos and pick approx 700-900 of the best. These will be fully edited and we will NOT send you any photos which we would not love, so no cringy photos...ever.

Now you know the price and what we offer.......£999.00

Here is a bit more detail about what we do on your day.....

  • When is your deposit and when is the balance due?

A £150 deposit is due on booking us and the balance is then paid 50% 4 months before the wedding day and 50% 2 months before. But don't worry we will be in touch to see how your planning is coming along.

  • What kind of equipment do you use?

We use professional Canon cameras and the best lenses for low light situations such as in the church. These cameras have dual card slots so your photos are never lost even if there is a card failure. To date we have never lost a photo.

  • How do you describe your photography style?

Our photos have been described as "timeless". The goal is to tell the story of your day and to get those unposed moments, those smiles, the little looks. This style is often called "natural".

  • Can we give you a shoot-list?

Yes of course you can, and we will be taking 1000s of photos throughout the day to get those fleeting looks. Usually we are given a list of group photos which is great, but having a detailed list of other photos will only restrict us, and we are professionals and we know what we are doing.

  • Are you insured?

Yes we are insured for public liability and indemnity.

  • Can we share our photos on social media and with family and friends?

Yes you can. There is no restriction on your PERSONAL use of your photos. The copyright will remain our property. If you want to share them with friends and family that is absolutely fine, but you cannot sell the images without our written consent.

  • Can you create an album for us?

Yes, we can. We offer high quality glossy layflat aibums. These are 30x30cm with about 50 pages containing approx 80 photos. The price starts from £350 and extra pages are £10 each. We can also create some stunning wall art for you. Can you imagine a 48" photo of your favourite photo hanging on your wall and triggering all those memories?

  • Do you take formal family photographs?

Yes. We believe that that you should have some family group shots, not just for yourselves but mainly for your family, who may have traveled a long distance to get to your wedding. We highly recommend that one of the bridesmaids, best man, or a groomsman organise the group photos as they know whom they need to gather together.

  • How many photos will we get?

On average we take between 6000 to 10000 photos and we edit these down to about 700 to 900. We have found that too many is a bit overwhelming.

How long will I be waiting for my photos?

This can vary but it is usually 7-10 days after your wedding. They will be on a personalised USB stick and on a private gallery where your family and friends can order prints.

  • Any other questions?

Please just ask as we are here to help and make your day run smoothly.


Natural and Candid Photos

You want your wedding day shot in a natural and genuine way, and want to work with someone who’s experienced and confident that you can trust.

You want to have the photographs that are natural and candid, that you don’t even realise are being taken, but you also want a few where you’ve been given a bit of direction and you look and feel just like yourselves.

We can do all the above and more for you.

We are more than JUST photographers

We will stay in the background during during the wedding ceremony, make you comfortable during the couple’s session, knows how to wrangle big groups for family portraits, and isn’t afraid to get in on the action on the dance floor.

But above all of this, you want photographs that capture what your day felt like, the tiny moments no-one noticed, the energy of the people there and the pure joy, delight and emotion on the day you get to commit to your best friend.

We will help you get into your dress (well Cath will) if needed. We can pin on those annoying buttonhole flowers.....who invented those things especially when they seem to have a life of their own.....??? We even carry blister plasters as new shoes can hurt!!


Now if you are a cynic you will want to know

Chris and Cath were the ultimate professionals! They built a great rapport with every member of the bridal party and guests. Pre wedding their planning was meticulous, ensuring they understood what we wanted from photos on our wedding day, and then on the day worked with us from 8am through to the evening celebrations. Not only did they meet all our requirements, but they captured our day naturally, and the end result shows a beautiful story of a perfect day! Our photos were with us within a week, and Chris and Cath met with us shortly after our return from honeymoon to discuss all our photo options. They are the ultimate professionals, fun, enthusiastic, capture every moment and make sure we're all comfortable along the way. Thank you both, couldn't have asked for any more from you on our special day!

We won't be having another wedding, but if we did we would want Chris and Cath there as our guests as they are such wonderful people! Fun, warm and professional, I told my husband that I felt I had known them for years. They captured so many beautiful moments of our family and friends and were also brilliant at making sure we (bride and groom) had photos of our special day. This also meant we spent time together as a couple, which looking back was so important as the hours passed by in what felt like minutes. Chris and Cath make you feel so relaxed and it really was a joy to have them there.  The photos we have from them are superb and we will forever be grateful to have them to look back on and fondly remember our wedding day. We cannot recommend Chris and Cath highly enough.

Josephine

From the initial zoom call, to a meeting at the venue and photography on the day the service from Cath & Chris was exceptional.

Everyone was put at ease on the day from the olds to children and some excellent photos were the result.


We cannot thank you enough for the brilliant photos which captured the fun and total joy of our wedding day.

Jon B-B

Super friendly, great ideas, great at helping organise the pictures we wanted and a relaxed vibe throughout.


Having 2 of them meant we got all the angles and shots:)
