About us

Sansom Photography began in 2010, fresh out of university we set out to create a business that represented what we thought wedding photography should be. We never wanted our clients to feel apprehensive about their wedding photography. By taking the time to get to know the couples we work with we are able to capture the day as authentically as possible, safe in the knowledge that the people we’re photographing aren’t worrying about our cameras. In the last 9 years we have photographed over 300 weddings all around the world. What we’ve learned during that time is that, for us at least, it’s not about the location, the dress or the venue. It’s all about two people in love. That’s why we love what we do.

We’ve spent over a decade together exploring the world with our cameras. There’s nowhere we would rather be than with each other, so working together wasn’t ever a difficult decision for us. We live in a stunning part of Yorkshire with our new baby – River – alongside the River Wharfe with our Labrador Kaya, our cats; Ponyo and Angel and of course Pika the rabbit.

River Woolf Sansom

In May 2019 we welcomed our first baby, River Woolf Sansom. We are absolutely loving being new parents and can't imagine life without him! We have been taking photographs of him non-stop and can't wait to watch this little guy grow. He accompanies us on many engagement shoots and is so well behaved already, hopefully taking it all in to become our apprentice in the future!


This is us on our wedding day! We got married in 2012 next to the river Wharfe in Yorkshire. Having been married for nearly 7 years we know how important your wedding photography is and how important it will become. Whilst we love having the photos of just the two of us, its the shots of our family and friends, and those moments we missed that are the most important to us now.


In 2015 Chris took part in the first series of Ninja Warrior UK, later making the final in Series 2. Keep your eyes peeled for his return to TV screens in the new series of Ninja Warrior UK in 2019 (Series 5 starts on ITV, April the 13th from 6.30pm)


We love exploring. We are grateful that our work has taken us across the World to Singapore, Dubai, America, Canada, and all over Europe. This has meant we have seen more countries than we could have ever dreamed of. We have a real passion for adventure and the outdoors so whilst these trips have been business we try and take a day to make sure we see the culture of these amazing countries. This shot was from Slovenia, one of our favourites.


We were honoured to be the first British speakers at Mystic Seminars in 2017. We had previously gone as one of the 350 attendees so to go back the next year as speakers was a real honour. Its highly regarded as one of the best (if not the best!) conference for wedding photographers in the World, and we definitely felt the pressure! But we love teaching and inspiring others and felt so proud to have been a part of this amazing community.


Having spent most of his youth as a national level swimmer Chris found a passion for cycling back in 2012. Now he spends as much time as possible exploring the Yorkshire dales by bike and competing in Triathlons when he can. With a Half Ironman under his belt the next goal is a full distance Ironman Triathlon.


Having always been fascinated with photography since a young age photography is something Verity will always have a passion for! Having had our son last year she found a new passion for portrait photography and set up Verity Sansom Photography to provide families with memories that will last forever. Creating unique and creative family portraits that are full of emotion and atmosphere.
