Wedding Photography Services for Chesterfield and Derbyshire

It is often said that your photographs are the single most important investment of your wedding day. After all, once the reception is over and your guests have gone home, all you really have left are your memories – and your photographs. Images created by a professional wedding photographer will help to keep those precious memories alive, and last a lifetime.

I offer wedding photography services to cater for a wide range of requirements and budgets. These are some of their benefits:

  • Aluminium services are for couples who want high quality digital files for making their own album, prints, slideshows etc
  • Platinum packages are for those who want both a professionally designed album and digital files

My experience of wedding photography in Chesterfield and Derbyshire has taught me how individual every bride and groom’s needs are. I believe that it is important to work with you to create a unique and personal set of wedding images that you will treasure for years. I pride myself on my personal service – which means that you will always work exclusively with me right from our initial meeting, to your wedding day photography, and the design and layout of your album. Here are some of the features of my Chesterfield and Derbyshire wedding photography services:
  • An initial face to face consultation with you to discuss the style of wedding photography you prefer, as well as any particular requests that you have (eg for group photographs).
  • On the day of the wedding itself, I take an unlimited number of photographs within the time available.
  • All photography is carried out by me personally – not someone hired by me who you may never have met before. With my experience of hundreds of weddings, I am familiar with most wedding locations in Chesterfield and Derbyshire, and how to use them to best advantage. This local knowledge and experience can be invaluable in the event of bad weather or unforeseen events.
  • My photography of the wedding day usually starts as the bride is getting ready. You can see more details of my coverage before the wedding ceremony here.
  • I continue taking photographs at the ceremony itself, of course, and finish at the reception after the start of the wedding breakfast (and a mock cutting of the cake). If requested, photographs can also be taken at an additional location (such as a local park or beauty spot in Derbyshire) at no extra charge.
  • Full coverage of the whole day is available as an option with all services.
  • Your wedding proofs are normally ready within two weeks of the wedding day.
  • When you have selected your favourite images, you can either leave the design of your wedding album entirely to me, or become involved in its layout and design yourselves.
  • You are never restricted to a single size of photograph in your wedding album. You can also choose to have them in black and white, sepia, or with a range of special effects applied.
  • All prints are made on genuine photographic paper (which has a lifetime guarantee).
  • All picture editing and album page design is carried out personally by me, using high-end professional hardware and software. I am an experienced user of Adobe Photoshop, and also offer training in its use.
  • Chris James Photography is insured for public liability and professional indemnity (for your peace of mind, though never yet needed).
