Full Description
Chris is a Documentary Wedding Photographer based in Kent. Chris Blackledge photographs weddings because he simply loves to and all he every wanted to so ever since he first lay my hands on my dad’s old Olympus film camera as a child. Photography has always had a big part of Chris' life. He always feel very, privileged to be able to call his passion his profession and he firmly believes that he genuinely do have the best job in the world. He has been told many times whilst attending somebodies wedding, “what a wonderful job you have!” and he has to agree! Its not only the photography part of being a Kent Wedding Photographer that he loves so much. Chris also loves the process of meeting people and getting involved in their big days. The entire process of meeting up for a coffee and a chat about all things wedding and getting to know couples is as much fun as the wedding day itself. And fun is very much the word that he uses most to describe his style of photography and how he approaches the task of capturing your wedding day.

photos that capture the laughter, human connection
Chris is amazing. The photos of our wedding are fantastic and we've come away with albums full of photos that capture the laughter, human connection and fun of the day. He was great to have there, not only because of his photographic ability but also for his relaxed nature and experience which meant he easily fitted in to the day, had advice on how to structure the day and seemed to always be in the right place at the right time for photos of our guests and us. Plus his creative eye meant we've got photos that other couples don't which makes the memories even more special. Thank you!

We could not be more pleased with our Photos. Thank you so much for capturing our Special Day perfectly. Not only was Chris an amazing photographer but also a great guy to have there on our Wedding Day. All our guests said how relaxed he made them feel, and to be able to see the moments that we didn't see on the day in print truly is amazing. Thank you so much Chris and we really could not recommend you more

If you are reading this review and wondering whether or not to book Chris...DO IT!! He was amazing from start to finish. He is incredibly friendly, and a relaxed kind of guy which is what we wanted for our informal ceremony, someone who would fit in like one of our guests. He is completely unintrusive also which a big plus for us. I knew our pictures would be good having worked with Chris before (I’m a makeup artist) and from looking at his portfolio but the images he has produced for us have literally blown us away. Getting married in winter in the dark has its challenges, especially with lighting, and the way that Chris has captured the romance of the venue with the lighting is incredible. The images have surpassed all expectations, so thank you Chris so much! Maybe will have to plan a vow renewal now so we can use you again!

What is your most memorable wedding?

All of the weddings I am lucky enough to attend are memorable in their own ways. Whether that be down to the little quirks and details that the couples have included or unique venues that I am photographing for the first time or fun friends and family making the day special. Every wedding is unique and amazing in its own way.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, natural, creative, relaxed and quirky.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Ive had the pleasure of photographing many weddings and nothing fills me with a bigger sense of pride than when I hand over another completed wedding to a happy couple. Seeing their reaction to their photos and watching them enjoy sharing those captured memories with their family and friends always makes me feel not only proud but also very, very lucky to be doing what I do.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

ENJOY IT!!!!!!!!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Far too many to mention so heres a few. Lindor favours, personalised beer bottles, light up letters, hay bale seats with tartan blankets, lawn games, family made cakes, a tree trunk cake stand (groom was a tree surgeon), complimentary ray bans for every guest, monopoly dog table decs and an ABBA themed quiz all were awesome.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet up! Make our plans!! Have fun!!!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Not being one for 'tradition' I would have to say simply, smiles. Lots and lots of smiles. Being a documentary wedding photographer I firmly believe that your wedding photos should tell the natural and flowing story of your wedding day and nothing tells that story better than lots of photos of you and your guests enjoying the event.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Whatever you feel comfortable with. I would definitely not push to go for a walk in the rain but if your game then so am I. If thats not for you then thats when its important to choose a photographer with bundles of creativity, ideas and technical ability. You don't need to go outside to capture some great photos.

Describe how you got into photography.

I have had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. I studied Photography at college back when we were still shooting on film (trust me, that makes a 33 year old feel ancient haha). But, I feel having that experience makes me a more creative photographer.
