BASILDON, ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello & welcome. I'm Chris Woodman - a Basildon wedding photographer covering Essex, London & Kent. Thank you so much for visiting my website. I really appreciate it! I've spent years covering weddings and making sure my shop window gives potential couples everything they need to decide on whether we're a perfect fit for each other. It's a huge milestone & I treat it as the biggest event in my life each and every time I get to grace a wedding.
Passionate? You could say that. I love nothing more than to hear how couples stamp their individual marks on the stunning venues that Essex has to offer. Quite honestly, I consider myself a creative person - (I should hope so, I hear you thinking), but I continue to be amazed by how everything comes together beautifully for the weddings I'm lucky enough to cover. It's the time and energy you all put in that I really respect and this is what drives me to produce the best work I can so you can be proud of what you've achieved. I look for details, emotion & connections that make your day special and meaningful. I'm very much a people person & it's this side of things that gets overlooked when searching for a wedding photographer in Essex. Imagine if you found a photographer that reached out to you through their imagery only to find on the day that they upset your guests or didn't even dress appropriately for the occasion. It totally happens guys!
I would love for you to contact me & book my wedding photography services in Essex but even if you didn't, I really want you to make the right choice and hire somebody who has the same kind of drive and level of understanding so you can relive your day with a smile. Please take a look around & see if there's anything that reaches out to you. I'm only an email or a call away if you'd like to know more. I look forward to hearing from you & have a great day!
I love to think out of the box & create images that couples really appreciate. Much of my inspiration comes from my couples who over the years have become more savvy with what can be accomplished. My journey with my couples starts the moment they hire my services. I'm always trying to imagine how they see their big day so I can reproduce this in my own creative style.
Wedding photography is awash with emotions. Even the most laid back people crack under the pressure. I absolutely love the raw feelings that inevitably surface on the day because that's the REAL you. That's what I'm after and that's what I produce.
Couples always need that '5 minutes' away from the hustle & bustle of their wedding day. I find that this is the perfect time to create something really special for my couples. I call it my signature edit. It serves as the showpiece & quite often proudly hangs on the walls in my couples homes. Together we can tell your story in the most beautiful way.
Natural unobtrusive imagery is always best. I try to observe & record a wedding day without too much fuss & interference. I get the best from my couples & their guests by having a laid back approach & it's this style that allows me to capture some truly wonderful memories that you can treasure for generations.

I cannot thank Chris enough for our beautiful photos and album, as well as an extremely easy process working with him. From the very first meeting we were put at ease by Chris' friendly nature. He showed us some work and talked through styles that we liked and disliked. There was no pushy sales pitch. He lets his work do the talking. As soon as he left, we knew he was going to be our photographer. We had an engagement shoot with him and our decision was proved to be a great one. We came away with some gorgeous photos and some of them make up a canvas in our home now! He managed to put us both at ease as we were a little camera shy before we started. On the day of the wedding, Chris captured all the key moments. An excellent job considering there were two brides! During the ceremony and speeches, we got some great shots. If I'm honest, I don't even remember seeing him. He is very discreet! Our album is stunning! We are incredibly happy with it and everyone has commented on how lovely the photos and the album are. We couldn't have asked for anymore and we couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer. His prices were also very reasonable. Thank you Chris! Mrs Landers-Mackintosh

Chris photographed our wedding in August 2016 and we can't thank him enough! He turned up really early in the morning as we had a 12.30 wedding and didn't leave until late as we wanted to get a couple of evening shots. It was a full on day in which he was nothing but professional. My partner and I have always said we don't want a camera constantly in our faces and to be pulled away from our family and friends too much as it's a day that we have spent a lot of money on and we wanted to enjoy it with everyone. He listened to everything we asked of him made sure that we got all the photos we wanted but also made sure that they were natural (not too staged) other than the few traditional ones we asked for. He made us feel extremely comfortable and that's a massive thing on your wedding day. Looking through our photos when we received them was an extremely difficult task and we ended up having to order extra pages as the photos were so lovely it was hard to narrow them down! Chris was extremely patient with the multiple questions and with how long it's taken to decide. I'm really looking forward to receiving our album to show our family and friends! Thanks again Chris!

From the moment we met Chris we knew we he was the man to photograph our wedding. His calm nature puts you at ease and he is happy to answer any questions and help with anything he can. Chris fit seamlessly into our day, so much so we didn't even know he was there, but he managed to capture everyone moment of our day. The photographs are truly amazing, from the big shots down to the fine detail, Chris captures it all and has some fantastic ideas when it comes to settings and surroundings. You really need to look no further than Chris. It is a pleasure to have him be a part of your day. If you want someone who is going to be calm, composed, fit seamlessly into your day and capture every special moment of your big day, then Chris Woodman is your man! Thanks again Chris!
