My name is Chris Culbert & I am a wedding photographer in Northern Ireland. Husband to Leanne, dad to Amelie & Seth and commander-in-chief to mentalist chocolate labrador Fiddy. I’m a big follower of rugby and I do a killer beef wellington!!!
I’ve been shooting weddings now for 5 years and besides my family it’s a massive part of my life. People ALWAYS ask me is it not crazy being repeatedly smack bang in the middle of the chaos that is a wedding day? For me there’s nowhere else I’d rather be!
For the tech minded people reading I began my photography journey with a set of Canon 5DIII’s before jumping ship to Sony at the end of 2018. I now shoot on Sony A7III cameras using a mixture of Sony & Sigma lenses. I edit almost everything in Lightroom with the odd touch of Photoshop in there too. I love talking all things photography, so if you’ve any photo questions just drop me a message!
I’ll take all the usual shots that you would expect in your wedding gallery (first kiss, bridal procession, family shots, cake cut, first dance) but my passion is covering so much more than that! I thrive in the buzz of a wedding, I just love capturing images that display the energy and vibe of your day!!!
At weddings you’ll find me working my butt off in the background to capture all the REAL moments of the day as they happen naturally! I’m not in to up-tight & fussy images, I want to capture the raw passion & excitement of your day and I’ll happy push boundaries and break rules to do that! And I’ll definitely get in the mix with your friends & family, capturing the buzz between you & them as you celebrate one of the best days of your life!
To capture some epic bridal portraits I’ll only need the both of you to myself for 25-30 mins tops, we’ll kick ass and rock some unreal photographs that you’ll treasure forever. On your wedding day you belong with your family & friends so you can rejoice in that I’m not that guy who’ll trail you on a 3-hour shoot!
I work best given a free license to roam & shoot your day as I see it! I’ve plenty of examples of previous weddings here on my website, go check them out & see if my vision is something that you can buy in to.
I shoot weddings to produce images that are full of character, emotion & are REAL! I often shoot with wide angle lenses so that I am stood right in the mix on your day, I might cop the odd elbow but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not that guy who zooms in from across the room, I want to be in the thick of it!
My editing style is REAL too, I keep things clean & sharp with a punch of colour! I want your images to be timeless & a real representation of the emotion & colour of your day, whether that be a hard sunny day in July or a winter castle wedding in December!
