Contact Chris Francis

I am a documentary wedding photographer based in Cardiff, UK. I am passionate about capturing real moments for my couples and documenting their wedding day without orchestration. My coverage is 95% photojournalism and 5% portraits.  
I like to capture my clients personalities and understand how they work so that they are comfortable with my presence enabling me to capture real moments. I like my clients to see the story unfold through my images and I also like to make some epic portraits during the wedding day, celebrating the couples relationship.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Cardiff UK. Travel is included upto 50 miles from my base here. Addition fees are costed on a location basis, I am willing to travel anywhere in the world and have great access to Cardiff and Bristol Airports with Heathrow only 2.5 hours away also. I am in a great location to serve any local or destination wedding.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

My shop has been open now for 9 years and I have photographed all weddings as the main photographer. I always believed that as a documentary wedding photographer it was important to have a consistent approach and style,

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Documentary wedding photography with a short bride and groom relaxed portrait session.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Most customers opt for the All day digital package which starts at £1450 and includes all day coverage from the bride getting ready right through to the first dance.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I conduct meetings at my home address or we can Skype too.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a degree in Fine Art.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I love painting, photography, chess and travel! I love meeting people and capturing and framing moments. Wedding photography is my chosen way of life and enjoy every wedding I document and love meeting the couples I am fortunate to document their wedding days. To that extent I offer a free pre wedding meeting and shoot where possible to get to know each other more before the day and take a few relaxed images. Nothing satisfies me more than delivering a strong set of storytelling images and some epic portraits to capture their celebrations and I look forward to meeting the next.
