Chris Geary Photography bio picture

Hello. I'm Chris. Before I introduce myself, I should let you know that, for personal reasons, I've decided to take a break for a while so I'm not taking bookings for the foreseeable future.

I've loved photography since I was a child. Back then I had a Kodak Retinette IB which I still have although it stopped working years ago. I bought my first film SLR back in 2001 and today I use Nikon D700 bodies with Nikkor 24/1.4, 35/1.4, 50/f1.4 and 85/f1.4 professional prime lenses. I also love travel photography and I've had the privilege to see some amazing parts of the world... Australia, Thailand, India and Africa to name a few.

I'm a movie and music lover, both of which seem to go hand in hand with a nice glass of wine or dark ale. I love good food, my favourite of which has to be either Thai or Mexican.

Ten things...  1) I love walks in the country. 2) Chocolate is A Good Thing (TM). 3) Music needs to be heard and ideally felt. 4) I'm a little OCD at times. 5) Jack Bauer never goes to the toilet or charges his mobile. 6) David Palmer needs to be president for real. 7) Tom Yam Goong is amazing, if I had to choose only one thing to eat from now on, that would be it. 8) BT, Hybrid, Elbow, Angus and Julia Stone - all music gods. 9) I can't stand middle lane hoggers. 10) Life is short, embrace it, live it, and do things.

It’s been a while since I posted anything of a personal nature so here goes. I took a few days out last weekend to escape for a while. The last couple of years have been some of the toughest of my life so I decided to treat myself. Castle Farm is nestled in the Black...

Sarah and Adam, Northcote House

thumbnail

This time last year we were having an Indian summer but it was quite a lot cooler for Sarah and Adam’s Northcote house wedding this year. I drove over to Northcote House to meet Sarah and her bridesmaids for the prep and despite the cool temperatures, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky! As the...

Leanne & Alan, Lansdowne Club

thumbnail

I met Leanne and Alan in a cool juice bar in London last year. I don’t remember what I ordered but it contained more fruit than I normally eat in a week and once blended it was a taste sensation! I wanted to move to London at that moment. Upstairs I went and sat with...

Jill and Martin, Wasing Park

thumbnail

Summertime in England these days is a bit hit and miss. August isn’t a guarantee. You might get hot weather or rain. For Jill and Martin’s berkshire wedding at Wasing Park they had the perfect summer’s day. I’ve known Jill since the late 90s when we worked together at a software company so when she...

Sally and James, The Three Horseshoes

thumbnail

I arrived at The Three Horseshoes Country Inn bright and early on Saturday morning for Sally and James’ Buckinghamshire wedding. When I met them both for the first time for their pre-wedding shoot, they told me that they’d have a camper van on the day. I knew then that this was going to be a...

Lisa and David, Old Thorns Manor Hotel

thumbnail

I’d been watching the weather forecast expecting a wet day for the first of a double wedding weekend on Friday. Despite some moody looking clouds, Lisa and David were blessed with a cool, dry and sunny (at times) summer’s day for their wedding at Old Thorns Manor Hotel. Lisa got ready in the Hampshire Suite...
