Hi I’m Christy

A little about me....

Hi I'm Christy a wedding photographer based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

I would just like to say congratulations on your engagement and thank you for finding me.

So I bet you would like to know a little bit about me and how I became a documenter of all things weddings, love and happiness.

A little about me

Despite being a creative through and through I worked for various finance companies since leaving school. The day job was busy and required regular study and exams. In my spare time I did take some art classes to keep myself sane.

I married my lovely husband in 2006 and we had 2 children pretty close together. For anyone who has had 2 children under 2 can relate to how crazy the household was at this point.

I was on maternity leave with my second child and I started recording their milestones on a cheap point and shoot camera. It was here that a huge love affair with photography started. Then I started day dreaming about becoming a photographer. It seemed like a good time to take a risk work wise. So I didn't go back to my office job after my maternity leave ended. I set up my own business and thought lets just see where this goes.

That was 2010. And here I am. Feeling like I am exactly where I am meant to be.

My Approach

My approach to wedding photography is natural, gentle and honest. I believe in getting to know my couples, your wedding day dreams and plans. I like to fit the photography around your day and not the other way around. I think your day should be filled with memories of mingling and chatting to your guests not looking at a camera for the whole day. Of course we build small chunks of photography time into your day but its 5 or 10 minutes here and there not big chunks because face ache is real and thats not fun.
