Chris Giles is a leading British wedding photographer associated with timeless and original images that capture all the “lovely love” moments. Having built a rich and diverse portfolio, Chris continues to produce creative and cool images his clients always love. While he is more than up to the task with the more traditional photos, he is never afraid to try new things or push boundaries, and has been given the title of the ‘Swiss army knife’ of wedding photography. Ever ready, he can easily handle the most difficult lighting situations, capturing everlasting images against all odds.
Chris provides a highly personal service through the process of meeting the couple, covering the wedding, editing, and delivering the images. He believes it’s not solely about shooting a wedding, but about recording the family’s history. Chris is the wedding photographer who is always within reach and entirely involved in everything from fixing buttonholes to tying cravats. He is friendly, honest, approachable and totally open-handed about his work.
He has demonstrated his versatility by combining a number of useful skills including personal skills, SEO, social media, content writing, and photo editing. With approximately 50 weddings a year, in the UK and abroad, Chris has made a name for himself over the years, relying mostly on referrals and online visibility. Gathering all he has learnt over the years, Chris offers a three-part mentorship programme to help young photographers cope with the business side of things.
Chris shoots farm and barn weddings, urban and beach weddings, house and garden weddings, bar and hotel weddings, and engagement shoots. His other non-wedding related work includes headshot photography, promotional photography, and landscapes.
