About Us YPD Studio

 

Chris Denner

I try to put everything I have into everything I do simply because I don’t know any other way! I hate being bored… Documentary photography is a technique I love to use when shooting weddings, I love to tell stories through imagery – to deliver a visual narrative. My influences in music and contemporary art contribute to a smaller but just as important part of the capture process, as I also love to include very dynamic and dramatic imagery when it comes to your bridal portraits. I want to create artwork for your walls, imagery that you’ll love, not just photographs to go into an album, on a shelf. Since going full time with my wedding business in 2007 I still pinch myself that I get to shoot weddings all over the UK and worldwide. I really do feel like I’m living some sort of a dream. These days I’m living in a cool, gothic inspired house with the girl I love. When I’m not hanging out at weddings, I spend most of my free time playing guitar, reading or playing with my little cockapoo Indy. Anyway, that’s my story. I’d love to hear yours.

(Yes that’s right, I’m Chris’ better half)  I’m a photographer, social media princess, vegan, and avid tea drinker who loves to travel.  For me weddings are so much more than the ‘big event’ – they’re also about the finer details, the intimate and natural connections between people and those little things a bride and groom may miss on the day but will look back on and smile. All of which create a much more ‘all encompassing’ reflection of your day and are great for building your wedding storybook album.  My style is subtle and purely documentary – while Chris specialises in the spectacular bridal portraits we are known for, my interests lie in observing people in a very natural way at your wedding. When I’m not shooting I’m actively avoiding the gym (seriously life’s too short), gushing over any dog I see, or getting involved in charitable activities. And drinking tea. Always tea.

I’ve always worked in the creative arts industry with a particular specialism in photography. I grew up with two older sisters, both now married (yes, Chris WAS their photographer) and so have plenty of experience behind the scenes of weddings! I love working with clients, expanding my knowledge and building a stunning portfolio. The great feedback afterwards always makes the hard work worth it.
