Hey, I’m Chris of Chris Mee Studios, I’m based in County Tyrone near Strabane but travel across the country to capture the story of your day.
Weddings aren’t just a job to me they’re my passion, bordering on an obsession at times and I believe photography to be such an important element of a wedding as so many of those beautiful little moments and the feelings you felt can become a distant memory without great images to remember them by. I see myself not just as some random supplier but your photographer, your friend and your guide to help you along the awesome journey of getting married!
Before I fell in love with wedding photography my professional training (BSc) was in Cinematography and Video. Studying the art of creating moving pictures has given me the greatest influence to my style, I try and convey filmic feel in everything I photograph from the way I compose and use light in my images to the way I edit. I aim to capture all of those beautiful moments that happen throughout your day telling your story in an unobtrusive manor taking a step back while being right in the middle of the emotion of the wedding day. I try to make my documentary images more exciting than classic reportage photographer, I do this by using light, composition and colour in interesting and often dramatic ways drawing on my Cinematography background.
I love to travel to exciting new locations and photograph destination weddings of which I have been privileged to shoot several over the last few years travelling across Europe through France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and even as far away as Thailand. So if you love my work and you’re living in Ireland or the UK and planning a destination wedding then please drop me a line, I’d love to be there for you!
