We are extremely delighted with all of our picture
We were very specific about the type of photo's we wanted taking for our recent wedding. Chris listened to our requests and as a result we are extremely delighted with all of our pictures. We wanted to capture the day in the most natural way possible and we certainly weren't disappointed with the results. Chris traveled to North Yorkshire, arrived in good time and discussed the format for the day. He carried out our requests and put us at ease, even suggesting that we have a photograph on the dodgems as the fair was in town! We would not hesitate to recommend Chris Parker in the future. He is also very reasonably priced compared to other photographers.

Cannot thank you enough for our amazing photos! Lovely fella and beautiful photos! All of the shots are amazing and so natural looking, had so many lovely comments from people at how beautiful the images are and how natural they are looking rather than the normal bland posing. You’re a super talented photographer Chris, and we just can’t put into words how grateful we are that you could do our photographs.
