Contemporary Yet Timeless Wedding Photography

Choosing a photographer for your wedding day is a very personal choice. You need to be confident that the person you entrust will be able to do more than just record the key moments. A good wedding photographer should also be able to capture the romance and beauty of your special day, and produce images that will keep alive your memories long after the cake has been eaten and your flowers have faded.

This is what Chesterfield wedding photographer Chris James has been doing for over 20 years, during which time his highly personal service has earned him a reputation for reliability and quality among wedding photographers in Derbyshire. His distinctive style is “contemporary yet timeless”, striving both to capture the spontaneity and emotion of your day, while also creating classic images that you will cherish for decades. He works as unobtrusively as possible, but has the experience to know when to step forward to organize as quickly and efficiently as possible, with the minimum of fuss.
