Amie + Jam

Amie + Jam's Brighton Couple Photoshoot

Hello! Sorry for the radio silence. Wedding season happened so blogging didn't.

I moved from Birmingham to Brighton over a year ago + now it's hard to imagine living anywhere else. So I was beyond excited when Amie + Jam agreed to travel from the little town next to my old hometown to shoot with me in (my new hometown of...) Brighton. They'd never ever been to Brighton before (!!) so they spent the day checking out the ice cream + watching the World Cup final before we met up. It was so awesome to hear the familiar Black Country twang at the beach!

I absolutely love doing Brighton couples photoshoots a few weeks before the wedding. Spending a couple of hours with the people I'll be photographing makes it such a breeze to create portraits with a genuine energy on the wedding day... not to mention grabbing a few non-drunken-selfies in the process.

Amie + Jam are getting married at the amazing Dewsall Court. I don't know why I wrote that in the future tense. I've actually already photographed Amie + Jam's wedding but blogging is basically a full-time job so you'll have to give my time travelling sentences. Anyway... it was absolutely amazing + I can't wait to share those photos with you soon.

In the meantime, here's my first engagement session in Brighton since moving here + a few words from Amie + Jam on their engagement shoot:

"We've just sat down and looked at them and they are honestly AMAZING, I really don't understand how you've taken two very awkward people who don't like touching and made it look like we actually like each other haha... we are incredibly grateful and you are seriously talented, can't wait for you to be part of the day with us in a couple of weeks - we're going to have the best time!"

Amie + Jam.

Hannah + Picky | Pub Wedding, Alderminster

Relaxed, Pub Wedding.

I photographed Hannah’s sisters wedding a few years back at the amazing Cripps Stone Barn so I already recognised loads of faces + knew it was gonna such a fun pub wedding in countryside. I love catching up with families I’ve met before at weddings – it’s like bumping into a bunch of old friends + getting to party with them all over again. This time it was Hannah + Picky’s turn. These guys made me feel like such an important part of the day + gave me total free creative reign to do whatever I like (literally the best thing you can say to any wedding photographer). They wanted laid back, fun wedding photography so I was able to get involved like any of the guests + photograph everyone just enjoying themselves + having a great time. Anyway…check this out… I literally got invited to go to the pub for a wedding. I took some photos + I didn’t even have to pay them to say this…


“Where do you even start with Chris Barber!? Argue with myself to decide what’s better… him or his photos! Chris you are simply amazing! We could not have asked for a nicer, more talented person to capture our wedding day, and my goodness did you capture everything about our day perfectly. We cannot get enough of our wedding photos, and pre wedding shoot pics. Everything has been beyond our wildest dreams. Can we get married again just so we can hang out with you again!? Thanks so much Chris!

Lots of love, The Picks”

Laura + Harry – Santa Maria Di Castellabate Wedding

Santa Maria Di Castellabate Wedding.

Back in the summer I was invited to be part of Laura + Harry’s Castellabate wedding. This whole wedding was *stunning*. I’ve loved photographing destination weddings recently. There’s something so exciting about getting on a place + heading to a location that’s totally different to where I usually shoot. I love working with new types of light, completely different architecture + meeting people from different cultures. I always arrive at least a day in advance (because air travel) which means I usually get to meet + hang out with my couples friends + families before the wedding. Meeting everyone in advance makes it feel like I’m a genuine part of the day, rather than just the “official photographer” which builds trust + means that guests feel more at ease in front of camera. I genuinely consider this group of people as good friends + it’s sort of awesome that ‘job’ allows me to see exciting new places, meet awesome people + create photos that make people happy.

This was the third wedding I’ve photographed for this group of friends. It started back in 2016 when I shot Liam + Maria’s laid back pub wedding, followed by Ria + Jordan’s London Town Hall Hotel wedding in London before this total feast for the eyes.

I met Sara + Oliver a few weeks back for their couples photoshoot in Brighton. I love Brighton so much that I decided to move there! There’s so many awesome locations for couple shoots in Brighton but I absolutely love photographing couples at home so we started at Sara + Olivers’ pad.

Sara owns her own amazing vintage boutique in the Lanes – it’s called Waiste Vintage + you should definitely go say hi + have a browse next time you’re in Brighton.
