The Wedding of Jonny & Rachael

So Jonny and I go way back, back to primary school in Jarrow. We went through primary and senior school along with best man Andy too, so it was an absolute pleasure to be asked to shoot this amazing day for these guys. Despite the wind and the overcast weather we had great fun at the epic Newton Hall with these guys and their lovely families. Here are a few of my favourites from the day….

Who Am I….?

So, it struck me yesterday that lots of my clients who enquire through my website, blog and Facebook, don’t actually use my name. It tends to start “Hi there”….and this bothers me a little. This is obviously no fault of the couples who are enquiring but I guess my lack of a face within my brand. With this in mind I wanted to share a little bit of information about me and help people to realise that Xtraordinary Photography isn’t a network of photographers working together….its actually just me!

 

 

So, now you know my name is Chris. Well actually it’s Christopher, but hey that’s just for my Mother.

So here’s a little more about me…I’ve been married to the beautiful girl I met at 18 for nearly 7 years now, and we have two awesome kids Oliver (6) and Noah (16 months). I’m the youngest of three with my Big Brother Sean being an inspirational teacher at a local secondary school, and my very brainy sister being a Dispensing Optician and Practice Manager- OOO EERR!

Some quick fire facts about me;

  • I played for England U-19′s Basketball Team
  • I used to be County Cross Country Champion
  • I was once on the News about being 6’2″at 12 years old
  • I have bent little fingers (its genetic(thanks mother))
  • I’m a massive fan of music- especially Maximo Park- A North East Band

 

So there you go, now you know a little more about me! Watch out over the next few days for some of my most recent work from weddings, engagement shoots and band portraits!

 

Chow for now!

2013- A year to remember

So, it’s come around quickly, the end of another remarkable year both personally and professionally. On the positive I’ve been lucky enough to shoot the weddings of 20 amazing couples with a massive range of styles, locations and weather conditions.
I’ve worked with some awesome models, shot some very cool little people, launched our Wedding Photography workshops, shot for a major fashion brand and completed more commercial work than any other year.

A couple of hiccups along with the way including emergency surgery two weeks before my first wedding of the year and a few hospital trips with the boys, but all is good and everyone well. What more can you ask for at this time of year than a healthy family!

I’ve managed to tick a couple of boxes on my “wish list” and I can’t wait for what 2014 has to hold and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who continue to support me and wish each and every one of you a very happy and prosperous 2014…….Here are a few of my favourite images from the last 12 months….

The Wedding of Janine & Ross- Sneak Peek

This lovely couple first met me at a wedding fayre in Durham where Janine walked up to me and said “You’re my wedding photographer..” It was awesome to meet someone who had followed my work and could talk about my weddings more than I could!

They tied the knot in October where the weather was on our side, and well the day was just awesome! Here are a few of my favourites from the day….

The Wedding of Juliet & Simon- Sneak Peek

We shot the engagement shoot of this lovely couple a good few months back, so it was great to catch up again at the beautiful Newton Hall in Alnwick for their wedding amongst family and friends…..

 

Big thanks once again to Michelle Mercer Photography for her assistance on the day..
