Hi! I’m Chris Sansom, one of Yorkshire’s most highly awarded wedding photographers for over a decade. I live just North of Leeds, working throughout the UK as well as destinations across the globe I’ve shot over 350 weddings in the past 11 years and have seen my work featured in countless industry leading publications. In 2015 I was included in Rangefinder Magazine’s ’30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography’ and have since been included in countless top 100 and top 50 wedding photographers in the world including Junebug Weddings, SLR Lounge, Mywed and GoHen. My focus has always been on allowing couples to enjoy their day as naturally as possible, without added interruption or posing. I tell epic love stories for incredible couples.

ISPWP Awards

I’ve won 9 ISPWP awards The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) is a rarity among wedding photography organizations. “Photographers cannot simply buy an ISPWP membership, they have to earn it. Our requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism. To be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. And THEN they have to be voted in by current members. In short, when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.”
