    We recently got married in May and Chris our photographer has just recently sent us the  link for our wedding photos. Wow amazing how fast this link was emailed over to us. We are really impressed with how quick he got these sent to us. It brought back amazing happy memories and he captured the most beautiful shots of me and my husband and also my family and friends. Also I respect how patience he was towards our guests. We had a lot turning up late, but we managed to get them all for the family shots and they were well worth the wait. Chris is very professional and very friendly and we will definitely recommend him to family and friends on their special occasions. Hopefully in the near future we will see Chris again for future occasions. Thank you again for making our day so perfect and capturing those happy memories on camera which will be there with us forever!

    We got married in June 2013  and it was a pleasure having Chris as our photographer! He was with us from preparing in the morning until our friends finished performing in the evening, he was great at getting everyone together quickly for the group photos and was friendly and relaxed for the more personal photos. The photos are stunning and perfectly captured the feel for the day. There was a lovely mixture of posed photos and candid shots and we can't wait to decorate our house with all our favourite photos. I cannot recommend Chrysalis photography highly enough and if we ever have a need for a photographer again we know exactly where to come!

    I was very lucky to receive a voucher from my employers Thomas Irving Equestrian in conjunction with Chrysalis Photography for a photo shoot with my horse Storm. We had so much fun, Chris was very patient and even got his foot jumped on when Storm got a bit giddy oops! Most of the time I wasn't even aware that Chris was clicking away so much and catching lovely moments of me chatting with Storm, we had over 80 images to choose from they were so amazingly produced with the lighting and effects they even looked like we had taken Storm into the studio for some shots! It was so difficult to choose just one that will be taking pride of place on our wall and I'm sure I will be going back for more:)

    I decided to take my old ned for a photo shoot,  it's something I have always wanted to do and finally got round to at the end of the summer. The farm which the studio is based at is superb and an ideal location. The photos are fantastic, and a beautiful keepsake.  The wide selection was also  amazing, therefore I had to purchase them all. Never in a million years would I have been able to pick. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
