Chris Storey Photography

Chris

Let me introduce myself – I’m Chris, the person responsible for the URL you’re currently browsing and I don’t take myself too seriously!

Photography gives me the opportunity to explore new places, meet some lovely people, and create incredible memories along the way. As a wedding photographer, there is nothing as rewarding as being smack bang in the middle of our clients’ day, capturing all the special and sometimes unexpected moments.

I was born and raised in Leeds, Yorkshire and happily married to my wonderful wife Joanne (a brilliant photographer who also serves as my second shooter). Those who have spent time in Yorkshire know all too well that the weather can be quite dreary, which is why we relocated to the Dordogne for better weather (great for weddings!) and access to the breathtaking castles and chateaux where we are fortunate enough to capture our clients’ wedding memories.

We’re an affable couple who take pleasure in meeting new people and being part of their special moments. Though I am often credited with the images we produce, it is really Joanne who keeps me on track and organized. We place a premium on delivering an exceptional experience for our clients, from our initial virtual consultations to the final delivery of their images, and this is reflected in the five-star reviews we consistently receive.

Joanne

Jo’s love of photography comes from her dad. From an early age the family were taught to pose and smile for the camera. Receiving her first gift of a camera as a child and experiencing the immense anticipation of your film being developed set the stage for a life time love of photography. Joining her dad at weddings taught her much – especially given it was film back in the day and often only one shot at getting the perfect image. Today with digital imagery she still uses the many skills observed – composition and lighting, setting out the bride’s dress as well as tricks to get the guests to keep eyes open during group portraits !

Jo is super organised and very customer focused. You’ll find her helping with whatever needs doing on the day of you wedding. She organises much of the admin and comms, and takes care of quality and customer satisfaction.

How We Work

As seasoned wedding photographers residing in the picturesque South West of France, we hold a residency and the right to work in this beautiful region. With full insurance and a qualification from the esteemed Guild of Wedding Photographers, we assure you that your special day is in capable hands.

Partnering with my wife, Joanne, we capture your wedding from all angles, ensuring not a single moment is missed. By working as a duo, we offer two photographers at no additional cost, giving you unparalleled coverage of your wedding. Additionally, Joanne excels in organizing guests for group photos and any other assistance you require on your big day.

To produce stunning, high-quality images, we use Panasonic S5II camera bodies and S Pro lenses. This guarantees impeccable image quality, even for large prints. We record your treasured memories with dual memory cards for added protection, and we always carry spare cameras of the same caliber for ultimate preparedness.

Our package includes a complimentary pre-wedding test shoot, if possible. This enables you to witness our work style and editing process (which we never outsource), and gives you the opportunity to convey your desired look and style for your wedding photos.

After editing, your final images are presented through a private online digital gallery with no download limits. Our full-day package also includes a 60-page wedding album photo book delivered directly to your home – See a video of the wedding book HERE

We always arrange a zoom call with potential clients to discuss their wedding plans and answer any questions. During this call, we showcase our portfolio and how we use an online portal for seamless communication leading up to your wedding day.

We hope to hear from you and to learn more about your plans,
