A little more about Kris
I've been photographing Weddings around twenty years now and have met so many lovely people along the way who have shared their hopes and dreams for their wedding day with me.
My photographic style is a contemporary mix of relaxed & candid moments as well as the more dramatic imagery that I'm renowned for.
Outside photography, I'm a husband to Emma and a dad to our two boys, Blake & Kasper, who I hope one day may come to love photography as much as I do.

THE LATEST & GREATEST
I believe that every couple is unique so I personally tailor each package, treating everyones needs individually. If you choose me to be your photographer I will be there to guide you along the journey (I'm like a friend). I'll answer any question in the build up and make sure everything is captured perfectly and stress free on the day. When it comes to what I photograph, I capture those special little glances, close family relationships, romantic bridal portraits, the guys beforehand, the happy tears, that dress and those shoes, as well as your bridal party humour.
I'M A PROFESSIONAL QUALIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR, THAT CAPTURES THE FUN, AND THE FABULOUS REAL MOMENTS OF LIFE.
Be in love with what you are doing.
I have made many friends over the years.
I have met many friends through photographing people and hope to meet many more. Below are some of my past client recommendations. Thank you to, everyone, for all your kind comments and continued support!
If there was a 10-star option, Kris would get it! I cannot recommend him enough, an artist would be an understatement. Kris took our wedding photos and from beginning to end he was imaginative, professional and a complete delight to have present throughout our special day. We were over the moon with our photos and album, the only trouble we had was choosing from endless beautiful images! No question the best in the country – felt privileged to have him. Many thanks. – Claire & Colin Shields –
2 years ago we booked Kris to do our wedding photography and honestly, it was the best decision we made. From the moment we met Kris he made us feel comfortable, welcome and confident. We had so much fun shooting our engagement shoot and our wedding photos, we didn’t notice the time go in. The quality of his work is outstanding as is his personality and attitude towards his work. I highly recommend Kris as your photographer, I promise you won’t be disappointed. – Jade & Aaron Wallace –
Thank you so much for helping us remember our wedding day in beautiful photographs! You were an absolute professional from the moment you arrived and such a help… even putting the buttonholes on all the boys for them! I never thought our pictures would look as stunning as they do… you captured our day so perfectly! Thank you so much! – Nabla & John Graham –
Such a lovely man who is so good at what he does! From looking through Kris’s work while planning our wedding we knew he was exactly the man we wanted to capture our wedding day, and he didn’t disappoint. He is an absolute professional and a complete gentleman! We had so much fun with him. Picked our album up yesterday and it is simply breathtaking! – Jemma & Gareth Lynas –
I met Kris for the first time on a modelling assignment when I was engaged to be married. I was so blown away by his talent and professionalism that I booked him there and then for my wedding. I wanted to be totally confident that our wedding photographs would be amazing and I was not disappointed! Kris arrived ahead of schedule and looked so smart in a beautiful suit and had a very calm but confident approach to the day ahead..his unobtrusive manner in gathering all those beautiful shots meant that at times we lost track of where he was as he blended so effortlessly in with the crowd! I cannot recommend him highly enough and he even won a major British Photography Award for one of the photographs taken on the day! To this day,4 years later I still book Kris for various jobs from fashion shoots to family portraits especially as we now have 2 little boys since getting married!! If you book Kris, it will mean that there’s one less thing to worry about in the build-up to your Big Day… He’s magnificent! – Jenny & Michael Taggart –
Kris is the reason why I am still absolutely in love with every single inch of my wedding album. I would definitely recommend you check out his work. – Gina & Liam Beattie –
Thank you so much for making our special day, Kris. We could not have had it without you. You are one of the most talented photographers we have met. Your professionalism and kind direction guided us through the day. We feel very honoured to have you take our photos. Truly extra special xxx – Stacey & Steve Taylor –
A great friend and photographer. I Highly recommend Kris Dickson to any couple who are looking for a creative and a ‘one of a kind’ wedding album. A gentleman and professional. The best around. – Rik Brady –
Hi Kris, Just a little message to say the Album is fabulous, we have spent the past week taking it around the obligatory family and friends and all have been suitably WOWed!! Thanks so much, you really did capture things beautifully I had a BIG smile on my face as I went through it with Dave last week and still do when I think about it, Cheers. – Samantha & Dave Morrison –
Kris is an amazing young talent. Calling him a photographer is an understatement. In my opinion, he is an artist using a camera to produce masterpiece after masterpiece. Where other photographers compose, point and shoot… Kris is aesthetically inspired by his subject and the surroundings to produce something special, unique and beautiful. – Ivan McKane (Ratz Art) –
Hi Kris, got the album today… We absolutely LOVE it! Don’t know how on earth we’ll pick what one to get for the wall! Thanks so much, will let you know when we get everyone else’s opinions! – Lynsey & David Caulfield –
Hi Kris, What can we say… not just a photographer, an absolute gem! A treasure to work with on such an important day. Everyone commented on how professional you were though never got in the way. Thank you for staying so long for us, hopefully catching some moves from our dance. We would recommend you to anyone. Fantastic!!! Can’t wait to see the photos. Thanks so much. – Bronagh & Scott Dowds Moffatt –
Kris, Just a note to thank you for your good humour, absolute professionalism and patience on the day of our wedding. The courtesy with which you treated everyone present was greatly appreciated by all present. Lots of Love. – Kerry & Drew Alcorn –
Kris, Thank you for the outstanding album you have created for us on our wedding day. We cannot fully put into words our thanks and how impressed we are with the album you created for us. – Carleen & Ryan Thompson –
Thanks to Kris for making our wedding memories so special. Every time we look at our incredible album it takes us back to our amazing day. Kris made the whole experience and ensured we were relaxed and confident in his work from the engagement photoshoot to the photos on the day. Kris had great ideas and was very open to use the location and even to include our little dog… The results have been worth it to make our album stand out from anything we have ever seen. Thanks again Kris for all your hard work. – Nicola & Patrick Murray –
“I consider Kris Dickson to be one of the top photographers of this millennium”. – Colin Buck, Chief Executive of the Master Photographers Association –
Kris just finished doing a photoshoot for me for promotional work and my upcoming website. Couldn’t have asked for better, he knew exactly what I wanted and the finished result has been outstanding. I will be booking Kris again for more work in the future and would recommend him for any field of photography… BOOK HIM NOW! – Jason Maguire –
• How far in advance should we book you?
Most of my couples book anywhere between 12-24 months. Currently, there are weddings booked 3+ years in advance. Depending on dates I may be able to take some last-minute bookings but remember I do however take a limited number of weddings on each year. I hate turning away work however there is only so much one person can do. :)
• What is your photography style?
My photographic style is a contemporary mix of relaxed and candid moments as well as more dramatic imagery that I am renowned for. I have a love of colour which shines through in the way I handle images, but if it's a more muted colour palette you're after I can do that as well.
I capture a range of images from bridal portraits, the guys beforehand, details, family relationships and semi-formal images as well as bridal party humour.
I have twenty years experience photographing weddings and my photography above all is timeless.
You decide either way.
• Can we give you a list of images to do?
Sure, but we would sit down before your wedding and chat things through. I turn up on the day with a plan for every eventuality possible. You get one chance and I want to make sure that everything possible is covered.
• How do we book you?
All that is required to book is a £250 deposit and I would ask you to fill in my booking contract as well. This secures the date and only once the payment has been made and forms filled in and returned is the booking official. I cannot hold dates without a deposit and it's a first come first served basis.
• Do you do Wedding Videography?
No, but I work with a great team of people who I can provide details for. Photography & Videography are two completely different genres. The people I recommend are Professional Wedding Companies with years of experience filming weddings. I also work closely with some of the wedding industry's best vendors and I can chat with you about them when you meet up with me. They are the 'Dream Team'!
• Are you insured...?
Yes, I have both public indemnity and liability insurance. I also carry a range of back up equipment so that everything runs seamlessly (I have my own suitcase on wheels with a range of prime lenses in every focal length possible).
