Hi, I’m Chris, a fun wedding photographer working in the busy Atlanta Metro area, but I shoot weddings anywhere in the US, the UK and pretty much anywhere in the world!
I grew up in England and now live in the United States with my wife Jane and our two rescue pug babies Bodie and Spanky. I live in a wonderful house with my photography studio occupying the lower level, although Bodie and Spanky think they own the whole house of course!
My favorite things in the world are my family, my wife, our pugs, and traveling the world meeting old friends – and new friends too. When I’m not shooting weddings you’ll find me reading, creating something or just relaxing with the fur babies.
I couldn’t live without tea, coffee, my favorite shirts and of course my beloved cowboy boots! I spend a lot of time laughing – usually at myself – and nothing makes me happier than watching a good movie with Jane or having a beer with friends.
My love of photographing people led me into wedding photography, www.cottrellphotographers.com. I’ve been a wedding photographer for over seven years and I always have a ton of fun shooting a couple’s big day. For me, one of the best things about being a wedding photographer is that I get to document people’s wedding days and spend time with people who are all having a blast celebrating.
My couples love having a laugh and enjoy looking at good photography. The last thing they want is a photographer who takes over their wedding day and tells them what to do.
My wedding photography style is fairly relaxed and has a creative documentary feel. Sometimes my couples forget I’m there, quietly clicking away in the background! I capture all the happy and wonderful moments, and let you get on with having a fabulous wedding.
I hope to meet with you soon, learn about your story and make new friends! – Chris
