About Me

A little insight


Hello I am Christopher Ian and I am a Lake District, Lancashire and North West Wedding photographer that loves using a natural, alternative approach to tell your wedding story. Your wedding images are so important, they are more than just a record they will be passed down and shared with your family for generations to come. For me there is no greater honour for me to be involved in making these memories for you to keep forever.

I love to explore, finding dramatic backdrops of mountains, forests, fields and fells to create beautiful images that are evocative and full of soul and often find myself in some beautiful mountain or valley photographing landscapes and wildlife. My aim is to document and capture your day in a creative and artful way as it unfolds naturally – not just the key events, but all the moments in between.

I create intimate and truthful images I want you to enjoy your wedding or elopement, I want you to remember the laughs, the love and the joy.


“Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.” ~ Alfred North Whitehead

I often find myself lost in the music of Sigur Rós or perhaps M83 (‘outro’ is pretty much the greatest song ever) or lost in some orchestral overture or soundtrack, these kinds of music fills me with a creative ‘spark’ and inspiration in harmony with the environment.

Especially when listening to amazing works like these I love to shoot video, there is something so evocative in using such a medium. I am very passionate about cinema and especially visionary filmmakers of many different genres and  the creative possibilities in cinematography in general.

If there is one thing the you should really know about me (and you’ve made it this far) it’s this: I love what I do. Photography to me is not just a job, it is everything about who I am. It is my passion, it is my joy, it is my life and to me every wedding is an adventure and I cannot wait to join you on yours.
