We are Chris and Verity Sansom, in the last 3 years we’ve shot over 130 weddings, working incredibly hard to hone our talents and to carve out our own unique style in a fiercely competitive market. We now shoot no more than 40 weddings per year to ensure each and every couple gets our full attention. Our genuinely relaxed attitude and highly emotive photography has seen our business go from strength to strength.
We met at University in Leeds, Chris studied at the Northern Film School department of Leeds Met and Verity studied Fine Art. We both loved our degree subjects yet knew we weren’t in the right industry. We just knew we wanted photography to be what paid the bills. In the months before we graduated we started shooting weddings. Our first paid wedding together was in Kendal with Chris, Sarah and their son Nico. There were no guests, just a private ceremony followed by an incredible honeymoon in Europe and the US. Their witnesses, recorded forever on their marriage licence are Chris Sansom and Verity Woolf. We still think of that day and remember how connected we felt to the occasion, we’d only spoken to Chris and Sarah via email yet being so close to such a special and intimate day showed us the beauty and importance in what we do. Since then we have both pursued this passion for capturing the intangible, unrepeatable and unforgettable moments from the happiest day of two people’s lives. Being able to work together every single day is an incredible feeling that brings us an overwhelming gratitude to each and every couple that books us.
We are a young, fresh husband and wife team who approach weddings differently. We work together, blending our styles to create truly atmospheric wedding albums full of character and emotion. Chris draws heavily on his Film Production background, creating images with the feel of a silver screen romance while Verity’s Fine art background gives us that breath-taking ‘Wow factor’ every bride needs. We are both talented and acclaimed photographers who share our lives together as well as our passion for Wedding Photography and being the best at what we do.
