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. Verity is the magic behind the scenes (our editor) and Chris is behind the camera. 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. Over the last 11 years we have photographed in excess of 350 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. We live in a beautiful part of Yorkshire right next to the River Wharfe with our amazing son River and a house full of pets to keep us all sane!

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 and went on to have more runs on the course than any other contestant in the UK. Making the Grand Final in season 2, going on to be a course tester for series 3 and 4 before returning in series 5 to make the Grand Final for a second time!


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 has always loved sports, with Swim, Bike and Run at the top of the list. He's finished a half ironman triathlon in the past but now prefers to photograph the sport, regularly working for some of the worlds greatest athletes and is photographer to Olympic medalists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee.


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.
